Mountain Expedition (Mountaineering in Nepal)

Mountain Expedition in Nepal is the most demanding yet very exciting and challenging adventurous activity.

Nepal is home to 8 out of the 14 highest peaks in the world and thousands of mountaineers visit Nepal to realize their dream of standing on the summit of Himalayas. The world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest (8,848m), the third highest Kanchenjunga (8,586m), the fourth Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), the fifth Mt. Makalu (8,463m), the sixth Cho Oyu (8,201m), the seventh Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), the eighth Manaslu (8,163m) and and the tenth Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m) are all in Nepal!

There are 1310 identified Himalayan peaks in Nepal, and over 3000 peaks over 6000 meters, many of which have still not been opened for climbing. There are two types of mountains opened for climbing. One group of mountains include those smaller peaks over 6000 to 7000 m which are comparatively easy to climb and has been categorized as ‘trekking peaks’. The second and the most prized group of mountains include peaks over 7000m which are technically, physically and mentally very hard to climb and require extensive experience on the part of mountaineers. 

Every year thousands of trekkers and mountaineers come to Nepal to climb both the trekking peaks and highest mountains such as the Mt. Everest. Permits are required for climbing these peaks. At present there are over 300 trekking peaks which are operated by Nepal Mountaineering Association, a government recognized body for issuing permits. However for peaks over 7000m government itself regulates the issuance of permits. Nepal Environment Treks & Expedition operates mountaineering expeditions with its experienced climbers and mountain guides. Our mountain guides and Sherpas have years of experience in operating successful expeditions. Depending on your interest and your level of physical and mental fitness as well as technical skills, we can offer you varied choices and options.
