Rock Climbing

Rock climbing in Sikkim is another challenging sport for those who love and live adventure. It involves climbing a natural rock formation or an artificial man-made one, with the sole goal of reaching its summit by using a pre-defined route.It is generally differentiated by its need for the use of the climber's hands to hold his or her own weight in order to make a balance. Rock climbing is a physically and mentally demanding sport, one that often tests a climber's strength, endurance, agility, and balance along with his or her mental control.

IHCAE has varied climbing routes with diverse features that caters to different levels of climbers and their calibre. Starting from 20 ft to 80 ft, they operate all their rock climbing programs at the institute itself.

Nothing quite prepares you for that huge rush of adrenaline as you reach the top of the climb. And with a professional climber as your instructor, this 2-hour session will have you sweating in no time.

The indoor climbing wall is a safe and fun way to try rock climbing for the first time, or even to improve your skills. Your session will begin with a safety briefing as you learn the basic knots, belaying techniques and how not to scream like a 4-year-old child. And then up you go. Your instructor will talk you through every step as you move higher. Getting down is the best part, just let go of the wall and rappel down like a true commando.

It is so much fun; you'll probably want to climb up again, just to rappel down again. Our indoor wall is actually outdoors!! Which means you can enjoy the outdoors with the safety and ease of an artificial wall.
