Mt. Nirekha Peak Climbing

Nirekha is in the Mahalangur Region, deep in the Himalayas, close to the Tibetan border and hidden among the well-known giants of Everest, Cho Oyu, and Cholatse. The climb itself is relatively straightforward, though it does require ice-axe, crampons and some fixed rope sections. It is a very do-able climb for anyone in good shape and with a desire for high adventure.

Nirekha peak (6159m, 20,206ft.) is one of many newly opened Himalayan climbing and trekking peaks in Nepal. It is one of the most famous view points among all the peaks of Nepal.  From the view point, one will have  panoramic views of Himalayan peaks like Everest (8850), Nuptse (7879m), Lhotse (9501m), Lhotse Shar (8383m), Makalu (8475m), Baruntse (7720m), and Ama Dablam (6856m) Thamserku, Cho-oyu etc.

Experienced climbers should attempt the summit. Nirekha peak requires some technical skills of peak climbing.

The crews for the climbing were excellent. Especially Kancha, the guide is really exceptional ( friendly, knowledgable, and willing to give the best service ).
