During 2010-14, local and foreign mountaineers organized five different types of expeditions to the Indian Himalayas:
- 1-Peak Expeditions
- 2-Peak Expeditions
- 3-Peak Expeditions
- 4-Peak Expeditions
- 5-Peak Expeditions
Single peak expeditions accounted for more than four fifth of the total expeditions. The remaining expeditions were multi-peak expeditions. 4-peak expedition was to Uttarakhand and 5-peak expedition was to Jammu and Kashmir.
Both foreign and local climbers preferred single peak expeditions.
