Do let me know how to enlist the peaks for sota summit.
Her in india we are not registered with sota . We would like to iniciate this process and list many peaks with sota .
Thank you in advance


All of India in one Association would be a mammoth task, I think it would be better to have an Association for each state, like the USA. You should form a team and work with the SOTA summit team, the biggest problem is likely to be availability of good mapping, since we will need summit and col data to define the valid SOTA summits. Read the “Finding More Summits” items in the Blog on the SOTA website.
