“Training at India’s & Asia’s Prestigeous Mountaineering Institute.”
NIM has completed 40 years of existence. Training Mountaineers has always been raisen d’etre of this Institute. Over the years, thousands of Indians and hundreds of Foreigners have passed through the portals of this great Institution.
Although one of the youngest Institute of India, it has today striven forth to become India’s ‘sheet anchor ‘ in the field of mountaineering. The demanding and stringent training standards, excellent administration, unflinching loyalty, dedication and competency of the staff, has put NIM not only as the foremost Institution of India, but also one of the finest in the world.
The aim of the Institute is to introduce and initiate young men, women and school children to the mountains and nature through its various Mountaineering and Adventure training courses. Special emphasis is laid on instilling the concept of Adventure sports, without causing environmental degradation.

The Nehru Institute of Mountaineering was established at Uttarkashi on 14 Nov 1965 to honor the great desire of Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, who was an ardent mountain lover. The proposal to have a Mountaineering Institute at Uttarkashi was mooted by the Ministry of Defence, Govt. of India and Govt. of U.P. in 1964.
