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.

Its close proximity to one of the world's best trekking trail (Singilila) which meanders through the beautiful forest covered with rhododendrons and a variety of other alpine vegetation is undoubtedly a breathless moment for many, in the process making it one of the best training institutes for adventure sports in the country. Also, the snow fed perennial rivers of Teesta & Rangeet offer great challenges to the White-water rafting enthusiast.
