The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence. – Rabindra Nath Tagore


The Himalayan Club is the oldest mountaineering club in India and second oldest in the world. This website has been created by the Kolkata Section of the club exclusively to showcase its year-long events. For detailed information about The Himalayan Club please visit


To encourage and assist Himalayan travel and exploration, and to extend knowledge of the Himalaya and adjoining mountain ranges through science, art, literature and sport.
“The Himalayan Club is founded, and we hope great things of it; the geographer that the blank places on his map may be filled in; the scientist that our knowledge of the Himalaya, its rocks and glaciers, its animals and plants, its peoples and their way of living, may continually expand; the artist that its glories may inspire fine pictures. The mountaineer may dream of the first ascent of a thousand unclimbed peaks…My own hope is that it may help to rear a breed of men in India, hard and self-reliant, who will know how to enjoy life on the high hills.”

- Sir Geoffrey Latham Corbett KBE, CIE
Founder Member, The Himalayan Club
