Located on Lebong Cart Road, Tenzing and Gombu Rocks stands facing opposite to each other and is just 20 minutes drive from Darjeeling. The massive Tenzing Rock is named after Tenzing Norgay, the man who climbed the Everest first time along with Edmund Hillary in 1953. Gombu Rock is named after Nawang Gombu, Tenzing’s nephew who climbed the Everest twice for the first time in the history, in 1963 and in 1965.

These gigantic rocks serve as a training place for rock climbing for the students of Himalayan Mountaineering Institute of Darjeeling. An annual rock climbing competition is organized by the Indian Army at the Tenzing Rock. It is said that an army climber climbed the Tenzing Rock in just 35 seconds in 2010.
