Mountaineering Expeditions
The Majestic Himalayan range is home to some of the planet's highest peaks, including the highest, Mount Everest. The Himalayas include over a hundred mountain peaks exceeding 7,200 meters (23,600 ft.) in height. Himalayas, the greatest mountain range in Asia is filled with many ecstasies.

Right from snow filled peaks to the steeper valleys and the never ending lush greeneries along the terraces complemented with the rugged paths, the Himalayas brings the best choice for a thrilling visit to its vast ranges spread at different areas of India, Nepal and Bhutan. Mountaineering / climbing could be the best part for exploring these amazements in the valleys.

For thousands of years the Himalayas have held a profound significance for the peoples of South Asia, as their literature, mythologies, and religions reflect. Since ancient times the vast glaciated heights have attracted the attention of the pilgrim mountaineers of India, who coined the Sanskrit name Himalaya—from hima “snow” and alaya “abode”— for this great mountain system. In contemporary times the Himalayas have offered the greatest attraction and the greatest challenge to mountaineers throughout the world.

Mountaineering is not merely a physical activity rather it is a science and an art. Mountaineering has become a popular sport throughout the world. While mountaineering began as attempts to reach the highest point of unclimbed big mountains it has branched into specializations that address different aspects of the mountain and consists of three areas: rock-craft, snow-craft and ice-craft, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety.

There are two main styles of mountaineering: Expedition style and Alpine style. Every year the alpine or the non-alpine mountaineering expeditions are attempted on the peaks which are far beyond imagination. They bring back great experiences of climbs and each of them set higher standards in the sport. With the recent openings of restricted areas numerous opportunities for mountaineers from around the world have sprouted to scale virgin peaks and inscribe their name in the books of mountaineering history.
