Peak Climbing in Nepal


The Kingdom of Nepal forms a rectangle of land apparently sandwiched between the giants of Tibet to the north and India to the south. Among more then 200 peaks in Nepal 33 peaks is known as ‘Trekking Peaks’. The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) founded in 1973 with the objectives of promoting mountaineering activities in the Nepal Himalaya and creating awareness, both at national and international levels, of the need to preserve the beauty of the Himalaya for future generations. And NMA issues permits for expeditions to these with very simple formalities. 

Some Trekking Peaks are easy ‘walk ups’, but others are technical and can sometimes be dangerous. In general a team of guides, porters, kitchen crews and both kitchen and camping gear are necessary to undertake expeditions to these peaks.
