The weather during the opening months of 1994
was a typically confusing Uttaranchal mix of sun and storm. Beautiful clear
days, blue skies unbroken by a single cloud were frequent, but the tranquility
glimpse of spring was equally frequently
broken unsympathetically by thunderclouds
charging down from the Mussoorie ridge.However, the confusion of the climate was
in direct contrast with the clarity of
the vision for the future of the Himalayan Adventure Institute to provide “ a
feast of adventures for all ages and walks of life “ . A great deal has been
achieved over the last 19 years, a renowned training INSTITUTION created where
before there was only scrub and rock.An international class fibre glass
artificial climbing wall now stands sentry over the campus. Thousands of
trainees have come, completed their programme and gone back to their homes,
stronger in body , mind and spirit.
But when one is in pursuit of true excellence, the journey is never truly
completed. That is the case here.
To give HAI the ability to compete on an international stage, which will in turn
provide the funds and exposure to enlarge its range of offerings, including a
increased role in the charitable work of the region the following steps that
will be taken over the next two years are :
Build the Conference Centre for
organizing indoor training and conducting seminars and workshops for active
learning and living.
Build a centre of excellence of good
health , healing and rejuvenation with a mission to help individuals build
balance, strength and flexibility in their yoga and meditation practice and
Adding to the treasures of the Himalayan
Heritage Centre and Museum with more artifacts and other collectibles from
across Himalayan geographies and cultures.
Continued investments in THIS - The
Himalayan International School to give local village children the confidence
of being at par with the best in the world .
Continued natural landscaping around the
Institute area , afforestation etc .
