Our Objective

“There will be no lack of adventure of the mind and body for those who are prepared to venture into uncharted seas and climb unknown peaks”

– Pandit Jawaharlal

 

Mountaineering is an art and science and not merely physical activity. It is one of the finest sports but to practice it without training and technique is deliberate suicide. Training promotes caution and clear thinking. It avoids fatigue and danger and improves safety. A mountaineer must not only learn climbing but also understand the mountains.

The objective of Himalayan Mountaineering Institute is to encourage and promote mountaineering amongst youths of the country. HMI aims to train enterprising members of the community, who in turn develop mountaineering activities in the Himalayas as a sport and as a scientific and entrepreneurial pursuit in field of adventure.
