Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM) is rated as one of the best mountaineering institutes in India and also considered as the most prestigious mountaineering institute in Asia.

The proposal to have a mountaineering Institute at Uttarkashi was mooted by the Ministry of Defence, Government of India and the Government of Uttar Pradesh in 1964. Uttarkashi was specially selected as the home of NIM, primarily because of its close proximity to the Gangotri region in western garhwal, which undoubtedly has the best climbing and training potential in India and perhaps in the world. Perched beautifully on the turtle back hill across the east bank of river Bhagirathi, the Institute overlooks the sacred town of Uttarkashi and the confluence of Indravati with the Bhagirathi. In a historic development in November 2001, with the newly formed State of Uttaranchal coming into existence, the Chief Minister of Uttaranchal became the Vice President of the Institute.

Courses Offered :-

Basic Mountaineering Course
Advance Mountaineering Course
Search & Rescue Course

Special Course :- 

Special courses are run by the Institute for different organizations on request. These include courses for deaf and dumb, and handicapped persons.

 In addition, training is conducted on request for Military, Para Military, Police, Schools and other organizations. Rock climbing courses are conducted by NIM Instructors at various clubs and other organizations, all over India during the lean period. Pre expedition training is especially conducted for IMF sponsored National and other expeditions on request.
