Few mountain systems in the world have so profoundly influenced the psyche of people as the Himalayas have done ours. Like all mountains a certain uniformity of cultural patterns can be seen here also from the north-eastern to the north-western Himalayas. The apparent unity of Himalayan culture is reinforced by the influence of Lamaism of Buddhism from the north and the cultural influences from the plains. In other hand, the mountaineering is a hobby and adventures. The British mountaineers were usually well to do professional men who spent six or eight weeks each summer in traveling trough the Alps and climbing the peaks which most attracted them, specially Himalayan range.
