Being a small town, Uttarkashi’s pride lies in its scenic landscape and its natural beauty. One will rarely find modern establishments or architectures here that towers over the sleepy town. So, museum is totally out of discussion, except for the one-of-a-kind, prestigious Himalayan Museum in the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering. The oldest mountaineering museum, which was established in 1957, is an academic hub for both the trainees and the scholars. Equipments used by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, the first two persons to climb Mt. Everest, a letter from the Dalai Lama as well as the sculptures, photographs and cultural artifacts of the various communities settled in the Himalayan region are preserved in this museum. There is no surprise why this museum is one of the major attractions of this town. The Himalayas have always inspired many generations. This museum is a testimony of that respect that India has for the great Himalayas.
