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 6000m and innumerable 5000m and 4000m hills stretching from east to west. From novice climbers to seasoned mountaineers, Nepal has a peak for all levels of climbers. Anything below 6000 meters 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 Antarctica's Mount Vinson (4,897m/16,067ft).
Climbing a Himalayan peak is no joke. Careful and thorough planning is required if you want to make it to the top of the summit and get back to safe ...
I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.
So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.
One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.
Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
