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.

I visited the Mountaineering institute whilst here in Darjeeling and found it excellent the exhibits and information are very good and I also watched a short film in the cinema as well which was well presented. There is also a small climbing wall and rope walkway at a small extra charge.
Definitely worth the visit.

This is an Institution as well as inspiration for those who are dreaming to climb mountains. After achieving the impossible Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary decided to inspire people by establishing the first institute of HMI at Darjeeling in 1954. A part of this institition is a museum consists of preserved teeth and skull bones of those who became victims of uncertainity and extremely resilient journey to the upwards. It is based on the equipments, Vest, hat, oxygen cyllinders of Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary which were used for climbing the mount Everest. There is also a perfect model of all the himalayan mountain picks with its name and hight. Overall it is a very enthusiastic and interesting tourist place.

The main attraction is the museum which houses a collection of artefacts from Himalayan mountaineering expeditions among other things. The personal items of Tenzing Norgay and the huge model of the Himalayan mountain range are standouts. Well worth the visit. They also have some small scale adventure activities for kids and adults.

Appreciate how this celebrates the multi-cultural history of Everest, with a focus on Tenzing Norgay. Gives you a sense of scale and the evolution of what is in the end an incredible team and individual human achievement. At the top of the Zoo path, so make sure to keep going when visiting the Zoo. Did not try the Zip Line or film.

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.
