“HIAL is a collaborative exercise between learners and facilitators, and aims to inspire the seekers of knowledge to explore both outside and within themselves. Instead of solving problems with the conventional 3Rs (Reading, wRiting, and aRithmetic), we encourage learners to problem solve using the 3Hs: Bright Head, Kind Heart, and Skilled Hands.”

Sonam Wangchuk
Founder & Director, HIAL

Learning by doing

Move away from classroom learning as you IMBIBE the local culture and traditional knowledge while you work and learn alongside the local people in Ladakh. We believe in education that enriches both the body and mind.

Collaborative Teaching & Learning

Students learn not only from academicians and industry experts but also from the local practitioners who are actually facing the challenges we want to tackle for the himalayan region.

Integrating traditional wisdom with technology

We develop sustainable models such as natural earth buildings, passive solar houses, and other models that are efficient, eco-friendly, and have low carbon footprints drawn from traditional knowledge.
