Welcome to the Himalayan Database

The Himalayan Database is a living record of all expeditions to expedition peaks in Nepal. With the arrival of the first American expedition to Mount Everest in 1963, Miss Elizabeth Hawley, who had come to Nepal as a journalist, started keeping the records.

In 2004, the digital version of the Himalayan Database was created and has been continuously updated since then. If you are an individual climber, an expedition leader or operator going to an expedition peak in Nepal, your contribution to the Himalayan Database will be essential to keep the records alive. 

Anybody can access the Himalayan Database by purchasing a copy on www.himalayandatabase.com or on Amazon.com. However, your contact information will be stored securely and will not be disclosed to any other person other than the builder of the database.

This questionnaire will take about 10 minutes of your time. If you would like any more information, please send us an email to info@himalayandatabase.com.

Thank you very much for your contribution. The Himalayan Database team on behalf of Miss Elizabeth Hawley very much appreciates your help in keeping the database alive.
