    This was surprisingly awesome. It starts with the different ways mountain people lived and clothes, instruments, which is nice. But what is really cool is the mountaineering section. There are many do...  more »

    A PLACE MUST TO SEE & EXPERIENCE THE MOUNTAINEERING. AN ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT ASPECT. DOCUMENTARY IS MARVELOUS. VERY GOOD PLACE FOR CHILDREN.

    Quite incredibly managed and beautiful rare collection of equipments and pictures of mountaineers who made their mark on the quest of conquering the audacious hiking to the top of the world.

    Definitely worth the trip. I was there 2 hours. The displays of the mountains in this region was very informative. There's also information on other mountainous regions around the world. It was interesting to see the climbing equipment used decades ago. This was one of the highlights of my trip actually. There is a restaurant on the grounds, but unless you're really hungry, I would skip it and go elsewhere. Very plain and mediocre.

    It has a lot of interesting information especially for people who love new experience. There is a practice mountain which can be climbed by children to start up their interest in mountaineering.

    One of the best museums I've ever been to. Offers wide variety of displays and additional information.

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
