All reviews tenzing norgay edmund hillary mountain climbers mount everest interesting museum mountaineering institute on display must visit place rock climbing hmi museum worth a visit darjeeling zoo first floor nice place equipment history information
I really enjoyed reading the history and seeing some of the artifacts from some of the most famous climbs in history. It is crazy seeing how primitive some of the equipment was and yet they climbed Everest with it. I knew I was going to...More
This is a must in the itinerary. A real informative display of materials and photographs which inspires the tourist. Most important, do not miss the film show. Watching the film show is an experience of almost yourself trekking the Himalayas and the great Mount Everest.
A great place to be if you are into trekking or fascinated by the mighty mountains. It is situated near the zoo and the entrance is free (you need to buy the ticket for the zoo). It contains numerous artifacts related to the different mountain...More
This is a must visit place even if you are not into mountaineering. The museum is well maintained and is a treat to see all the information and the old pictures and articles used by the legendary climbers in the past.

The entry fee is Rs. 50 for both HMI and the Zoo packed together. Camera fee is Rs. 10. The time depends on you. For ourselves, it took more than 3 hours to visit the two. Also there is a Natural History Museum in the zoo... More

Well it'd have been great if you could have add one more night at Darjeeling. The last leg of your itinerary looks a bit tight. And tiger hills you need to visit for Sunrise in the wee hours of morning. So there's no point in visiting Tiger Hill after reaching Darjeeling from Pelling. So you can either do that or you can do Darjeeling Sightseeing after reaching Darjeeling and if you have late flight, you can visit Tiger Hill, Ghoom Monastery and Batasia Loop early morning before departing...More
