Mountaineering is a high adrenalin sport and a passion for those love scaling new heights. Mountaineering requires a very high fitness level and skill that may not be necessary for other adventure sports. To climb mountains one needs to be in very strong mental health, as well as physically fit and well equipped to face all the challenges that mountains pose to a mountaineer. In short mountaineering is an art that requires skill, strength and stamina.

Mountaineering in India was introduced by the Europeans in the 18th century as it was the time when new regions were either explored or conquered. Mountaineering as an adventure sport at this time was just evolving. But later on, mountaineering became a serious business and man's quest to conquer new heights took him close to many high peaks around the world. This quest for challenging the might of mountains and the curiosity to explore what lies in the upper reaches of snow capped peaks has virtually made man a conqueror. Today there is hardly any mountain or peak left in the world that has not been scaled.
