Peak Climbing in Nepal

Peak Climbing in Nepal

Nepal is the world’s best destination for expedition and peak climbing. Nepal is home to eight of the world's 14 highest peaks over 8000m including Mt. Everest (8850m),  Kanchanjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8163m) Annapurna (8091m) along with thousands of other peaks that are above 5500m and less than 8000m.

Peak Climbing in Nepal is a fascinating dream for many mountain climbers. Peak climbing normally means climbing peaks that are above 5500m and below 7000m. Nepal has opened around 1310 peaks that are above 5500m for peak climbing.  Some of these smaller peaks or so called ‘trekking peaks’ are governed by Nepal Mountaineering Association, a private body entrusted to promote mountaineering and preserve mountain environment. Among them 33 peaks have been categorized by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) as ‘A’ and ‘B’ peaks. The climbing permit for these 33 peaks is issued by Nepal Mountaineering Association and the rest issued by the government.

Trekking peaks’ or ‘Climbing Peaks’ are smaller peaks than expedition peaks. To climb peaks you will need to have basic mountaineering skills like using ice axes, walking on crampons, utilizing rope techniques, glacier walking, rock climbing etc. With a team of experienced Sherpas and guides, these mountains can be climbed by both experienced as well as novice climbers. These peaks are especially suitable for those who do not have longer time and limited physical ability but still interested in climbing and experiencing mountain expedition.

As the name sounds, climbing trekking peaks will also involve trekking letting you have the experience of trekking and climbing at the same time.

Nepal Environmental Treks & Expedition has been organizing peak climbing successfully for many years with experienced Sirdars and climbing Sherpa guides. Whether you are a beginner or a professional climber, we can help you achieve your dream of reaching the summit. Peak climbing can be done either on an individual or group basis. We arrange all the logistics from climbing equipment to arranging climbing permits from Nepal Mountaineering Association and concerned government department. The best season for Peak Climbing in Nepal is either in spring (March, April and May) or in autumn (September, October and November). 

Below is the list of NMA climbing peaks categorized as A, B and Others. (Note: ‘A’ and ‘B’ peaks will require climbing permits while ‘Others’ peaks do not.)
