Courses available for mountaineering in India? 7 years, 4 months ago #290

What are the courses available for mountaineering in India? Are they spread across India or available only in North India/Himalayas?

India has some really good Mountaineering Institute's that have to offer some high quality Mountaineering training courses . The three following institute's typically offer a Basic mountaineering course which is about 28 days and then an advance mountaineering course which is also about the same duration. Anyone can enroll in these institute's provided you meet their age and medical standards. Just ensure you enroll well in advance , ideally atleast 6 to 8 months in advance , so that you get admission as these courses are often full because of their high demand and quality of training .

The courses, no doubt are physically and mentally strenuous but do cover all aspects of Mountaineering with some world class mountaineers as Instructors :
