Pradesh has some challenging peaks and each year expeditions are organised
by the Mountaineering Institute at Manali. The Mountaineering Institute
has regional centres at Dharamsala, Bharmour and Jispa, which organise
adventure courses as well.
The area around Manali presently forms the core of mountaineering in Himachal. The Beas Kund region and lower reaches of the Hanuman Tibba (5,930m), the Manali and Shitidhar peaks around the source of the river Beas, and the Deo Tibba (6,001m) area, are suggested for beginners with some experience.
The Chandrabhaga ranges, the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges are an existing focus. The state also has several other areas where mountaineering is possible. The Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports at Manali, and its branch at Dharamsala, offer the activity. Courses are also available with the Institute.
