CLUB NEWS
The role and function of the Club during the last two decades have been changing in the flux of circumstances. Numerous mountaineering institutes and clubs have sprung up in different parts of India. The Indian Mountaineering Foundation, with Government patronage, has come on the scene as a powerful Factor in the promotion of Indian mountaineering. Basically, the Club still remains the only international body in India interested in mountaineering in the Himalaya, Karakoram and Hindu Kush and the Himalayan Journal is still the most definitive record of mountaineering in these areas. The Himalayan Club Newsletter is a valuable supplement. The bulk of the members' subscriptions of whom three-fourths are overseas, is spend in providing these services.

The Club is well placed to perform a wider role in drawing attention to the problems of conservation and ecology of the Himalaya. In conjunction with the I.M.F. the Club plans to set in motion moves for mountain-huts at suitable places in the Himalaya, especially as costs of porters are becoming prohibitive, except for the larger expeditions. The Club is also working for the greater availability of suitable maps for trekkers and climbers.
