India is a diverse and culturally rich country in South Asia. As one of the land forms responsible for the creation of the Himalaya Mountains, it is only natural that it contains some of these incredibly tall peaks, some over 7,000 meters. Its summits have an array of difficulty, so many mountaineers can try to tackle the mountains.
New Delhi serves as a reasonable hub for mountain climbing trips as it has a large international airport and is in close proximity to the mountainous regions in the north. The terrain is difficult but manageable, and provides a uniquely beautiful landscape.
Only three successful trips to the summit of Kanchenjunga have been made from the Indian Route (Sikkim), so most ascents will originate or run through Nepal.
Much of India is considered tropical, while the Himalaya and the surrounding foothills have an alpine climate. This means cold winters and variable weather patterns.

New Delhi is the best city to fly into, connecting directly to many major cities throughout Asia. Travel domestically can be done via regional flights, trains, and roads, with varying levels of efficiency.
Visiting in the spring, from March to May, is the best time for a mountain climbing trip.
