Mountaineering Overview 

Kashmir & Ladakh Himachal Garhwal & Kumaon
Sikkim Nepal Bhutan  

Mighty Himalayan Mountains stretching across the northern borders of India, from west to east, have hundred of peaks, many yet un-scaled, inviting the intrepid mountaineer.

Mountaineering as sport is set to have begun in the Himalayas only in 1883 when W.W. Graham, an European came to the Himalayas for the sole purpose of climbing. Graham was not the first foreigner to explore the Himalayas: many preachers and surveyors had been here earlier

Garhwal was the first part of the Himalayas to be explored and surveyed, and the highest peak in these mountains is less than 8,000 mt.

The Zanskar and the parllal Ladakh range contains few large peaks, but some like Sasar Kangri (7,672 mt.) are only 50 km north of Leh, the capital of Ladakh. The Zanskar range also contains the famous peaks of Nun (7,135 mt.) and Kun (7,085 mt.), popular with mountaineers because of their rocky structure, altitude and glacial face. 

The first Indian ascent of a major Himalayan peak, Trishul (23,360 ft.), was made by Gurdyal Singh in 1951.  

Year after year mountaineering is becoming popular and numbers of peaks are being climbed by Indian as well as foreign teams.

Having decades of experience in looking after adventure tourism, we are able to provide complete ground support that includes clearance of Mountaineering permit, custom clearance for the equipment, transportation, porters / high altitude porters, poneys, base camp, crew and other allied services.
