After completing the Snow craft and Ice craft training, we came back to HMI campus in Darjeeling on 28 April. While coming back we all were quite happy because everyone did good training and the best thing was we all were fit and fine.

Our glacier training at HMI Base Camp was about to start and we were all set to learn all the techniques and perform all the activities that were scheduled.
Before leaving to Sikkim, we were given time for an outing so that we could buy necessary stuff for the trek. We went to Big Bazaar in Darjeeling to buy chocolates and other eatables.
As per the schedule of HMI, the training was divided into two parts in which the initial 10 days training was to be done at HMI Campus in Darjeeling only and the rest of the training was to be conducted at the HMI Basecamp in West Sikkim.
Hey everyone, apologies for two months gap. This is my first post after this long gap and it is about my experience of the Basic Mountaineering Course at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (or HMI Darjeeling) that I recently completed (April 2017).
