Uttarakhand is a Himalayan state of India. This hilly state contains, in its northern section, some of the highest mountain peaks in the world. Many of them are unclimbed; many are unnamed. A large number of peaks in Uttarakhand are still not open for climbing due to security reasons, as this region borders Tibet. Following is a list of selected named peaks of Uttarakhand with elevation over 6,000 m (19,700 ft).
