Mountaineering and Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is often seen as the basic stage for mountain climbing. It can also be treated as an independent sport, since it is basically climbing a rock face, using only hands and feet with a safety rope.

The area around Manali, presently forms the core of mountaineering in Himachal. The Beas Kund region and lower reaches of the Hanuman Tibba (5,930 m), the Manali and Shitidhar peaks around the source of river Beas and Deo Tibba (6,001 m) (Kullu) area are suggested for beginners with some experience. The Chandra Bhaga ranges, the Pir Panjal and Dhalaudhar ranges are existing. The state also has several other areas where Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports, Manali and its branch at Dharamsala (Kangra) offer this activity. Courses are also available with the institute. (Indian Mountaineering Association). For details contact at Ph: 01902-250337, 252342 (Manali) and at Ph: 01892-221787 (Dharamshala).
