  • Museum describes all the mountains in the Himalayan range with pictures! Also have pictures and history of trekking ! Clothes worn during treks 
  • Go by taxi because it is quite far from the center of Phokara and rather difficult to find. Certainly, we are going to the Nepal to visit a Museum, but that this is worth the trip. Three large rooms, the 1st for the various ethnic groups of the Nepal, the second on geology and the history and techniques of ascents, the last on animals and the mountains, mainly pictures. In the first room, very informative, a small photo exhibition delicious on the similarities of social behaviors and/or landscapes between the Nepal and the European Alps. Literally amazing! A place not to be missed if one spends a few days in Pokhara. I further checked the box "unusual or risky", but the second proposal is perfectly crazy! Trip advisor should not mix the ideas or concepts also stupidly!

  • International mountain museum camps is brautiful place. Museum also attractive. Watching movi about mountain was very intertesting idea of the museum.
  • Not much intresting collections but a wonderful,cool and calm place.
  • Its the best place to visit to know abt nepal's mountains
  • A good museum, interesting background behind the world's mountains, including their geography and history. You could spend 1—2 hours here, there's also an outdoor climbing wall, although this looks disused. A taxi from Lakeside costs around 350 Rs
  • Perfect place for taking a peek at the hardships to climb the mountains. And the problems there
