“Fine museum”

Himalayan Mountaineering Institute
Ranked #2 of 99 things to do in Darjeeling
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Displays are a bit dated but good introduction to the history of these mountains. If you're going to the zoo, you might as well stop in here.

The driver cum guide will disuade you from visiting this place which is adjacent to the Zoo. Don't listen. The institutes will imerse you in the glory of mountaineerin, of human boundless limits of endurance. Knowing all your physical limitations, you will still feel like climbing one of the snow peaks

This has everything which you expect, lives up to its name. Right from the gear Sir Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay wore to the Everest to the original attempts to do so. Must watch.
