What a place to understand and appreciate Mountaineering. You feel as if you are actually going through history of how brave men had conquered the mighty Himalayas including Mt. Everest. Museum is outstanding. It shows various equipment used by climbers including the great Sir Edmund Hilary to conquer Everest.

A must visit, especially with children that would learn a lot of mountaineering and the himalayas. Avoid taking a conducted sight seeing trip and go on your own to be able to spend enough time - just next to the zoological park.

Interesting equipments from the various expeditions started in the 20's up to the last one in 2004. We would expect more explanations on these incredible men and not only few pictures, gloves and boots. Also more details on the women who have climbed until top, and finally more about the geology of Himalayas... While the women traditional dress from Buthan... More
