The mountaineering fraternity has finally something to cheer about.  The government of India is planning open an adventure institute in Arunachal Pradesh.

While flagging off the expedition of ace mountaineer Anshu Jamsenpa to scale Mount Everest,  Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju today made the announcement of government’s plan to set up North East Mountaineering and Adventure Sports in Arunachal Pradesh.

“Arunachalees are adventurous but mountaineering could be commercialised in the state only when people will start enjoying it. Society has to evolve to make adventure as a source of sustenance,” he said.

“I am planning to convene a meeting soon with the Survey General of India, Indian Mountaineering Institute and the Army to explore the possibilities of developing mountain peaks as mountaineering destinations besides giving them names and defining clear-cut routes for expedition,” he said.

Restricted Area Permit (RAP) and Protected Area Permit (PAP) had deterred growth of adventure tourism in the state, but has now relaxed restrictions in that direction.

“We have lifted restriction on RAP and PAP and the state government should work out other issues for development of tourism in the state.

“I want that all the peaks in the Himalayan belt should be opened for activities so that economic development begins.
