About Tenzing Rock
Tenzing Rock, a large natural rock in Darjeeling is named after Tenzing Norgay, the man who created history through climbing the Everest first time together with Edmund Hillary in 1953. Opposite to this is the Gombu Rock named after Nawang Gombu, nephew of Tenzing who changed into the primary individual to climb the Everest twice, once in 1963 and then in sixty five. He took over because the Director of Field Training at Himalayan Mountaineering Institute after Tenzing retired in 1976.
Both those rocks are used for mountain climbing education by using HMI. There is a board right on top of the Tenzing Rock that announces "HMI Rock Climbing Training Area". While facing the Tenzing Rock, the left side or the left face of the rock is used by the professional rock climbers and the trainees. Most vacationers make a mistake of going over to the proper side where the method to the pinnacle of every other parallel rock is pretty shorter.
