The Mountaineering Club enjoys a reputation for being the most active of all clubs in JNU. Indeed, as far as adventure activities
are concerned, the variety and challenges offered are perhaps unique for any educational institution in the country. The Club
attempts to develop team spirit and leadership qualities in university students through its programmes, and those who pass
through its ranks are second to none in terms of experience and abilities. In addition the JNUMC tries to raise awareness
about the environment and encourages participants to learn about local customs and traditions.
With a view to catering to every time or energy constraint that JNU students may have, the Club organizes several activities
such as high-altitude trekking, rockclimbing, cross-country cycling, and white water rafting. The Club which functions autonomously,
is affiliated to the Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF), New Delhi, the regulatory authority for mountaineering in India,
and has also been a member of the National Adventure Foundation (NAF), New Delhi.
