Peak Climbing

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). 

Home to 8 of the 10 highest peaks in the world, Nepal is the ultimate destination for mountaineers. The world’s tallest mountain Mount Everest (8848m), locally known as Sagarmatha and Chomolungma, rise up high in the Khumbu or Everest region of Nepal. The trail leading to Everest Base Camp receives the highest number of trekkers in Nepal. The Everest Base Camp trek is also one of the popular adventures in the world. This EBC Trek has been listed as one of the Top Ten Treks/Hikes in the World by Lonely Planet, National Geographic, BBC Travel, CNN Travel etc.
