  • It's so exciting to see HMI's history and achievements. Those interested can take part in some mild adventure activities for a fee. The campus also houses a zoo. Thursdays closed.

  • This is a informative & well maintained exhibit of mountaineering history. Very inspirational to understand how the brave climbers competed the impossible feats without modern equipment

  • It's an absolutely fantastic place to visit! Very enjoyable at every corner. The obstacle courses are very fun and I enjoyed them a lot. The museum is so nicely set up gives so many insights and every moment there was worth with. Also with the zoo along with the institute it's a complete holiday place to spend like 3-4 hours to go around and enjoy. I had a fantastic experience with my friends.
  • This place has a special place in our hearts. The 28 days spent here will forever remain special. The training standards are very high. The instructors are caring and they ensure the right learning is imparted to each student. It's been just 3 days we left HMI, longing to go back already.
