Indian Himalayan Centre for Adventure & Ecotourism (IHCAE), Chemchey is ideally located in the pristine mountains of the Central Himalaya on the lap of the world’s third highest peak, the majestic Mt. Khangchendzonga. IHCAE is the first institute of its kind in India to have achieved the remarkable feat of proudly unfurling the Institute flag on the “On the TOP of World” Mount Everest not once, not twice but thrice. And all this within four years of its inception (i.e. 7th Nov 2009).

The mission of the centre is to initiate, develop and sustain the highest levels of excellence for adventure and eco-tourism through safe, environmentally responsible activities, to develop local skills and to sensitize on established traditions.
