Best Time To Climb
The climbing season extends from mid - May to mid -October, the ideal period being from June to September. Foreign climbing expeditions are required to obtain permission from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation for climbing all listed peaks. A booking fee, based on the height and popularity of the allotted peak, is charged and a Liasion Officer is assigned to every climbing team. The minimum period required for processing applications is six months. Every authorized expedition is provided with adequate rescue coverage in the events of accidents and illness.

The early Indian Surveyors and mountaineers alike were unable to venture into the Inner Sanctuary. It was in 1934 the Eric Shipton and Bill Tilman eventually managed to find their way to the Sanctuary. This paved the way for the Anglo-American mountain expedition of 1936 to ultimately climb the peak. When Tilman and Odell reached the top of Nanda Devi on 29th August, 1936, they had reached the highest point ever climbed by man till then. And this height record stood till the French stood on top of Annapurna in Nepal in 1950 - the first 8,000m peak to be climbed by man.

Nanda Devi Peak
Even if not counted among the20 most highest peaks in the world, still Nanda Devi at one point in time, enjoyed the singular status of being the highest mountain in the British empire. At present too this peak is considered to be the second highest mountain peak in India, standing at a height of 7, 816m.

Inner part of the Sanctuary
The Inner Sanctuary bears similarity to wrongly written alphabet letter E, with the middle strokes made up of the twin peaks of Nanda Devi - the main and the east peaks. The other formidable peaks, which form on the other strokes of the letter include Latu Dhura (6,392m), Sakram (6,254m), Bamchu (6,303m), Deo Damla (6,620m), Mangraon (6,569m), Kalanka (6,864m) and Changabang (6,864m). Towards the south lie peaks like Maiktoli (6,803m), Devtoli (6,788m), Devistan (6,678m), Panwali Dwar (6,663m) and Nanda Khat (6,611m).

Outer Sanctuary
The outer area of the Nanda devi Sanctuary is easier to enter. This is the reason why it has provided rich pasture ground for shepherds for centuries. Many high Himalayan peaks lie on the outer rim as well including Ronti (6,063m), Nanda Ghunti (6,309m), Trishul (7,120m), Bethartoli Himal (6,352m), Hanuman (6,075m), Dunagiri (7,066m) and Mrigthuni (6,855m).
