Place for Mountaineering Enthusiast

The place showcases mountaineering artifacts. If you don't have interest in mountaineering it may be boring. However, if you want you may enjoy rope activities.

If you are in Darjeeling, you should go. But don’t go to Darjeeling because of this place. It’s in need of some TLC for sure.

Worth the Visit
Nov. 2020
HMI is the nick name of this place, once you enter its wow place. You have movie hall showing documentary of climbers. A well kept Museum of great collection, activity zone, and refreshment area. A must visit place with kids so that they can enjoy the activities. Compliments to team HMI for excellent management.

Worth a visit to learn about the epic history of Himalayan mountaineering. If you have an interest, in particular, of the famous sherpas of Everest, then this is a must-see.

The zoo and Himalayan Mountaineering institute are definitely worth a visit. We're not fans of zoos, but this is senstively done and it was very special seeing the red panda. The mountaineering institute also good.

In Tribute to Sherpa Tenzing Norgay
Feb. 2020
I was not aware that Tenzing Norgay was a resident of Darjeeling before my visit here; always believing that he was a native of Nepal. This Institute is an active training establishment for mountaineering and a museum of Himalayan expeditions with displays of equipment through the ages. A must for climbers of all persuasions.
