International Mountain Museum is devoted to the mountains of Nepal, the mountaineers who climbed them and the people who call them home. With an objective of maintaining systematic records of the successful eight thousanders, geographic flora and fauna and human activities in the range, the International mountain Museum has been established at foot step of fishtail peak and the gate way to the mountain region. The International Mountaineering Museum has four main exhibition halls with 12 sub-divisional halls. Inside, you can see original gear from many of the first Himalayan ascents, as well as displays on the history, culture, geology, and flora and fauna of the Himalaya. Now, head outside where there’s a 21m climbing wall and a 9.5m-high climbable model of Mt. Manaslu.
