If you appreciate climbing you have to go and see this museum...lots of different climbing information about the eight thousanders and the climbers who made history on them.
This place looks neglected since it was opened some years ago. Pity they've taken the natural history museum exhibits . I found out much more from the internet as the displays lacked imagination . There's a lot of potential in this place . Needs refurbishment considering the profits made.
I found this Museum most interesting, full of artifacts and history along with great respect for those who have ventured in the Himalayas close by.

This museum has lots of great content on the environment, culture, geology, vegetation and wildlife of the himalayan mountain ranges within Nepal. There are also really interesting exhibits covering the brave climbers from all over the world who have tackled the peaks. The info is displayed in a oldschool way but the content really makes up for this. Well worth... More
