The institute is good for those who like mountaineering. Darjeeling should have some more attraction to cover in 2-3 days, usually you finish all sight seeing in one day.

It was an interesting place for me and my son to see how challenging it is for a mountaineer to survive in snow clad mountains. Hats off to brave people who have managed to climb these high peaks.
