Expeditions

In the early years, The Himalayan Club provided assistance to members travelling in the Himalaya not only with information about the details of their journey, but also with expert advice and information on almost any scientific or technical subject relating to the Himalaya in which they were likely to be interested.

The Club was asked to assist international expeditions heading for the Himalayas byproviding volunteers to coordinate transport, logistics and other requirements for the expedition teams. The Club performed valuable services of approaching the Government of India in matters such as finding out whether certain expeditions would be allowed, customs regulations, and policies governing the duties of liaison officers and so on.

The Eastern Section of the Club kept a small stock of equipment which could be hired by members on application to the Honorary Secretary, Calcutta. In 1935, the Club also established procedures to provide assistance to expeditions seeking to hire Darjeeling porters.

In 1977, The Club decided to lend Club Sponsorship to Himalayan expeditions organized by members of the Club, provided there were no financial or administrative responsibilities involved. Sponsorship would be in the nature of recognition to the expedition and provision of some assistance in dealing with authorities concerned. The first Himalayan Club sponsored expedition was to Satopanth glacier for an attempt of Pt 20,587 feet (Parvati Parbat) in Garhwal in 1980.

Since then though, many climbers have taken advantage of this facility and in the last ten years both the Kolkata and Mumbai sections have been very active with a string of successes to their credit.
