Mountaineering

   
   

Mountaineering as a sport has a history as old as the history of the evolution of human race itself. Mountaineering started when the need was felt for people who could climb difficult heights and terrains to meet people across the border, to trade, or to conquer new territories. In the course of time, man developed new modes of transportation and communication and venturing out on these difficult routes were not needed. Nevertheless, what remained was his nature to take risks and getting pleasure in conquering something totally unknown and unexplored. This inner urge to take up challenges has led man to do things that are quite daring. 

 

Mountaineering in Garhwal & Kumaon is concentrated mainly in some areas around the Gangotri Glacier, Outer area of Nanda Devi Sanctuary, Pindari, Sunderdhunga, Johar & Darma valley. There are numerous peaks of varying heights and difficulty level, between 5500-7500 mts. The highest peak is Nanda Devi, 7817 mts and some more ? like Kamet, Nanda Devi east, Trishul, Hardeol, Trishul and Abhigaman are a little over 7000 mts. The approach march, in most cases, is not more than 3-4 days and therefore many available peaks can be attempted within a period of 2-3 weeks from Delhi.

.

The mountaineering season is from Apr-Nov, however, a number of peaks can also be attempted during winters. The permanent snowline in the region starts at around 5000 mt.

.

All mountaineering expeditions have to be cleared by the Indian Mountaineering Foundation before they can begin. Expeditions are graded according to level of difficulty and must be accompanied by a liaison officer, provided by the government, at the expedition's expense.
