The Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI) was established in Darjeeling, India on November 4, 1954 to encourage mountaineering as an organized sport in India. HMI regularly conducts Adventure, Basic and Advanced Mountaineering courses at highly subsidised rates to encourage mountaineering as a sport. There is a museum there and a Tenzing Memorial with photographs and artefacts related to mountaineering and adventure sports.
