This is a must visit place while in Darjeeling. Situated near Darjeeling Zoo,this is one of the most visited spot in Darjeeling. This institute was created by the late Tenzing Norgay. He was a Sherpa who climbed the Mount Everest on 29th of may 1953 with Sir Edmund Hillary. All the equipments used in that climb are still a highlight in that institute.

They also impart training by highly qualified climbers on Rock Climbing ( I did that too!), mountain climbing, trekking but their main specialty is climbing very high and difficult mountains.

Address: Near Darjeeling Zoo, Darjeeling, W.B.
