Youth and adventure are two faces of the same coin. In fact, youth is not measured in terms of the years that one has lived, but by the spirit of adventurethat one vibrateswith. It has, therefore,been rightly said that the nation that fosters adventure,remains young and proves it invincible. Adventure sports underscore the challenges of Nature before man and make him bold and energetic. It inculcates spiritof adventure amongthe youth and takes away from their minds the fear of the unknown. 
Mountaineering, often known as mountain climbing or alpinism, is a sport that involves reaching, or attempting to reach, high points in mountainous locations, primarily for the enjoyment of the ascent. Mountaineering encompasses a wide range of emotions at times, some of which can even collide. The feeling of freedom that comes with climbing a mountain cannot be described in words. It's a spiritual experience that leaves you feeling lively and energetic. Mountain climbing sport will reveal your inherent strengths, and also new ones. Good and bad times are inevitable on each climb, which is what makes the sport so hard and character-building. 
CCS HAU Mountaineering Club provides avenues for the campusyouth to take up the challenges inherentin this sport.The affinity of youth for the adventure has guided us to have our motto as “Youth for Adventure”. Since its birth in 1971, the Club is flourishing day and night with significant achievements to its credit.So far, a total of 2500 members have participated in one or the other activities of the Club. Some of the members have trekked more than 5000 kms in Himalayas. The Club has successfully completed six peak climbing expeditions (1977, 1993, 2004, 2018, 2019 & 2022).

Awards and Recognitions

Dr. I. S. Sheoran was awarded Hari Om Ashram award for team research, Rafi Ahmed Kidwai award and NAAS Fellow : -

Infrastructural Development

  • The department has a Botanical Garden spread over an area of 10.5 acres with rich biodiversity. The department has done pioneering work in conserving the indigenour local species of plant and also introduction of exotic specis (approximately 600) from other places. Various native and exotic trees, shurbs, herbs, climbers, aquatic plants, cacti and succulents have been collected and maintained for imparting knowledge to our students as well as related scientists. Flower shows are organized from time to time.
  • The department has 9 screening houses near the college building.
  • The department has developed 20 salinity micro plots to determine phyto-remediating potential of halophytic flora and 24 lysimeter have been installed in field to determine the transpirational potential of trees having importannce in bio-drainage.
  • Experimental farms spread over 25 acres have been developed to evaluate bio-drainage potential of trees to improve waterlogged soils.

Package and Practices

system having Eucalyptus tereticornis as a strip plantation should be established on the water logged soils. In this model north to south field boundary is converted into 2.6 m wide and 45 cm high raised bund on which two rows of trees can be planted. The intervening space is left for the crops with minimum of shade effect due to the north-south direction of bunds� initiated by Drs. O.P. Toky, Rajiv Angrish and J.C. Kaushik included in the HAU Package of Practices.
