Darjeeling, India

Visit the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute

As one of the famous mountaineering institutes of the world, the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI Darjeeling) is a premier organisation founded in 1954 to promote mountaineering as an organized sport like any other game in India. The idea of establishing the institute was initiated after the successful and historic climb of Mount Everest by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary in the year of 1953, to encourage the youth to take up the adventurous activity of mountaineering as a sport. Since then, HMI Darjeeling has been a leading academy that manages significant training and education about mountaineering such as adventure courses, basic mountaineering training, and even special courses for kids, women, under-privileged and differently-abled people. Also, the institute has proudly led many successful expeditions to the most difficult terrains of the Himalayas. There is a museum within HMI Darjeeling where exhibits fine assortments of many objects, equipment, maps, models related to life in mountains, and several other specialized articles for mountaineering. If you're into venturous sport and have a desire to gain an apprehensive understanding of mountain climbing, the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute is definitely worth your visit.
