Peak Climbing in Nepal

Nepal is home to the world’s highest mountains and many climbers and adventure seekers are eager to climb a Himalayan peak. Next, to the really big ones, Nepal has more than 1310 mountains which are over 5500 meters above sea level.

The peaks we are talking about are not Everest, Cho Oyu or Manaslu, but peaks with lower height and easier climbing. Often these peaks are referred to as "trekking peaks". However, the name trekking peak can be quite deceiving; few of the trekking peaks are walk-ups and some of them offer technically demanding mountaineering challenges. Almost all of these peaks are higher than any mountain you will find in Europe or the North Americas. Therefore, some of the trekking peaks should only be attempted by professional climbers. However, others can be climbed by first timers with a good fitness level and basic climbing skills. Most of our expeditions take you through wild and virgin alpine regions and usually you will have to trek to the peak for at least a couple of days.

In Nepal, peak climbing is controlled and managed by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). As a member of NMA, we are authorized to obtain climbing permits and operate climbing expeditions for our clients. It is by law that all people ascending trekking peaks must be accompanied by a Sirdar (leader) who is registered with the NMA.

The success of an expedition often depends on the quality and experiences of your trekking company and of course your guide. We believe we have both. We use only the trained and qualified climbing guides who have previous climbing experience on that particular mountain. We neither put our clients at risk by removing acclimatization days nor do we cut short on service staffs just to reduce the costs because your safety is our greatest concern. However, we are still providing our trips at most reasonable costs possible. We will work together with you to plan your climbing trip and realize your dream to be atop a Himalayan peak.

Nepal has 33 trekking peaks. Of these, there are 15 classified as “A” peaks and 18 classified as “B” peaks. The fees for climbing trekking peaks depend on the group size and the classification.
