Peak Climbing in Nepal is one adventure that mountaineers from all over the globe don’t want to miss out on. Nepal is a country of mountains. Though a tiny nation, the country has more than a thousand peaks rising above 6000 metres and innumerable 5000 and 4000 metre hills stretching from east to west. From novice climbers to seasoned mountaineers, Nepal has a peak for all level of climbers. Anything below 6000 metres is regarded as a ‘hill’ or in local parlance a ‘danda’. It is interesting to note that some of the highest peaks in the seven continents are no higher than an average Nepalese hill – for example Australia’s Mount Kosciuszko (2228m/7310ft) and Antartica’s Mount Vinson (4,897m/16,067ft).
