Mountaineering and rock-climbing in Himachal

Rock Climbing in HimachalRock climbing is often seen as the basic stage for mountain climbing. Yet, this may also be treated as an independent sport where the most basic level is climbing or descending a rock face, using only hands and feet and a safety rope.

The area around Manali, presently forms the core of mountaineering activities in Himachal. The Beas Kund region and the lower reaches of the Hanuman Tibba ( 5930m), the Manali and Shitidhar peaks around the source of the river Beas, and the Deo Tibba (6001m) area are suggested for non professional climbers with some experience in the sport. The Chandra Bhaga ranges, the Pir Panjal and the Dhauladhar ranges ( which are all sub­systems of the Himalaya) are also an existing focus.

The Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports at Manali and its branch at Dharamsala offer this activity. Courses are also available with the Institute.

Some of Himachal's important peaks are :-

Reo Purgyil (6816m), Jorkanden (6473m), Rangrik Rang (6553m), Hansbeshan (5240m), Shilla (6132m), Gyagar (6400m), Gya (6794m), Ratang Tower (6170m), Manirang (6593m), Parilungbi (6166m). Central Peak (6285m), Manimahesh Kailash (5655m), Papsura (6451m), Dharamsura ( 6446m), Gephang Goh (5870m), Ashagiri (6100m), PK (5990m), Phabrang (6172m), Malana Towers (c.SSOOm) and Shigri Parvat (6526m).
