“Totally New experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This institute has got all the equipment that a mountaineer could use and that too it was used by popular people like Tenzing norgay. You will wonder that you are standing in a place that is related to things that u have read before .

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Looked more like a North Face display than anything else - very disappointing. There were a few interesting bits about the first few attempts on Everest but nothing else worth looking at

“Interesting display of mountaineering history”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

Small museum with some interesting displays. Looking at the equipment that was used in the early expeditions you can understand how tough it must have been.

“Sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Full of noisy disrespectful people, the power failed in the museum and we could not see much of it and the exhibits are hardly worthy of such a heroic venture.

“Very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Excellent and unique place to visit. You will get the history of mountaineering in a short time. You can also try the mountaineering on a wall simulated as a hill.
