Welcome to the Himalayana website.

This site is designed to be an ongoing record of postal history and associated items originating from Himalayan Mountaineering Expeditions.

A note about definitions: "Himalayan" is taken to include the Himalaya chain, together with the Karakorum, Hindu Kush, Pamirs and contiguous ranges. In philatelic terms, the countries involved include present-day Nepal, India, Pakistan, China (with Tibet), Afghanistan, Bhutan and Russia. No inference should be made from the areas described that this website endorses a particular view of disputed borders. This website is about postal history, and not politics.

The proposed list of items which can be, for the purposes of this website, grouped under the heading of Himalayana, are as follows:

Postcards

Correspondence

Prospectuses

Film and Lecture Programmes

Autographed Material

Anniversary Souvenir Envelopes and Cards

Postage Stamps and Labels


I welcome any suggestions, corrections and new information.
