The achievements of HAMWS and its effective contributions to Nepali mountaineering are immense. Since its establishment in 1975, the Nepali Army has conducted Mountain Warfare Basic and Advance courses for the native students. As part of the advance training, the students are required to summit the Thorang peak (20,200 ft)/ Chulu West Peak (21,060 ft) in order to get graduated. Many graduates of the school are currently serving in Nepal Army’s unit and sub-unit located in high altitude areas while others are pursuing their military and mountaineering careers in different setting.
