The various adventure programmes on offer at HAI
are our raison d'etre. They are what the Himalayan Adventure Institute was first
formed to provide. This is where we aim to impact both the practical
skills to safely venture into the wilds and to show both instruction and example
what having an adventurous spirit really means. Teaching sessions provide the
introductory skills and knowledge needed for each activity. These are followed
by intensive practice on the wall or out on the nearby crags and hills. On
longer courses, the finale is a supervised but self-organized trek which gives
trainees the chance to bring all their skills together.
3 Day nature camp : We believe that there
it is never too young to introduce children to the outdoors. Our nature camp
gives a gentle introduction to the wonders of nature and the pleasures that
await those bold enough to give it a try! For 5-10 year olds.
5 Day adventure course : Our basic
adventure course for older participants gives a solid grounding in all climbing
and camping activities. Knots, rope handling, safety procedures and camp craft
are all taught. Trainees then have the chance to try out sport climbing, rock
climbing, rappelling and river crossing. A short but intense programme!.
10 Day adventure course : More times means
that skills can be further developed, with more time available to perfect the
various techniques. The 5 day programme is initially followed, and those skills
rehearsed, but time is also given to basic expedition planning and
search-and-rescue techniques. An two day trek and overnight stay is the
challenging culmination of the course ideal for those looking to kick-start
their adventurous career!
3 Month adventure guide course : This
course provide aspiring outdoor professionals with the perfect foundation to
their career. Technical instruction is combined with theoretical knowledge, as
well as an examination of the practical, legal and moral environment within

numerous outdoor disciplines - from rafting to mountaineering to parasailing to
trekking - is raised, and the statutory requirements needed to operate within a
specific environment are explained.
Pre-expedition training : Steep hills, hard
crags, deep ravines, a high-quality sports-climbing wall and a gymnasium
combined with good solid food and a calm reflective environment are all to
be found at HAI. This, combined with easy access to trailheads and a supportive,
knowledgeable and experienced faculty, make HAI the perfect base at which to
train prior to a Himalayan expedition. From Binog Hill it is easy to familiarize
oneself with the grand Himalayan panorama, spotting peaks climbed and those
still waiting to be attempted!
