Average Climbing Frequency
Average climbing frequency for the Indian Himalayas was 2.62 attempts per peak during the 5-year study period.
The averages for HP (2.89) and UK (2.69) were higher than the national average. The average for Sikkim was the lowest at 1.67.
Named vs. Unnamed Peaks
Out of total 212 peaks, 149 have been christened. The remaining are unnamed.
Altitude vs. Climbing Frequency of Top 25 Peaks
The graph of climbing frequency superimposed on peak altitude bargraph resembles a complicated ECG report. The frequency graph is full of high peaks and deep valleys and a small plateau.
Higher altitude does not thus imply higher number of attempts.
Number of Attempts
Most of the peaks (137 | 64.62%) were attempted just once during the study period.
Thirty-one (31 | 14.62%) peaks recorded two attempts each.
Eleven (11 | 5.18%) peaks registered four attempts each.
Number of Attempts vs. Number of Peaks
Top twenty-five (25) peaks recorded more than half (286 | 51.71%) of the total attempts made on 212 peaks.
