Peak Climbing in Nepal

Peak Climbing in Nepal

Peak climbing is surprisingly more and more popular and of course very challenging in the Himalayan country of Nepal. Peak climbing has become popular following the successful summit made by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hilary on Everest (8848m) on May 29, 1953. As home to 8 out of the 14 peaks in the world above 8000m, Nepal is rich in suitable peaks to climb. Nepal has more than 1300 mountains above 6000m, which offer an opportunity for mountaineering or peak climbing, for those seeking a fun challenge. Among those mountains, only around 400 are yet open for the purpose of organised adventures like peak climbing and mountaineering expeditions.

Besides Everest, the other seven peaks above 8000m are: Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8163m) and Annapurna (8091m). Permission to climb certain mountains is given by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), while the mountaineering section of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation issues permits for climbing higher peaks. The charge for the climbing peak depends on the number of members involved in a group and the height of the mountain to be climbed, as well as any other adventurous sport you want to organise in the mountain areas.
