Nepal is the holy-grail of mountains. This small Himalayan country hosts 8 of the 14 highest peaks in the world including world’s highest mountain, Sagarmatha or Everest (8,848m). People from around the globe are drawn to these gigantic mountains; most want to conquer at least one. So, naturally, peak climbing has been an adventure activity in Nepal for almost a century now. Of course, times have changed, and peak climbing in Nepal is now much safer.
From George Mallory to Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, Junko Tabei, Ed Viesturs, Apa Sherpa and TashiPhurba to many others, there is a long list of brave hearts who have done the impossible task of summiting some or most of world’s highest mountain. But, their journey didn’t start from the top. Moreover, peak climbing in Nepal is not only about climbing the highest peaks in the world.
There are a lot of other smaller peaks fit for novice climbers who want to do something adventurous. Nepalese Himalaya has 1,310 identified peaks that are above 6,000 m. Only one-quarter of these mountains are open for summiting. By Himalayan altitude standards, peaks ranging from 5,587m to 6,500 m are ‘’trekking peaks.’’ Adventure Club Treks and Expeditions organize peak climbing expeditions to Mera Peak (17 Days), Island Peak (17 Days, 19 Days with Everest Base Camp Trek, and 23 Days with Everest High passes), Pisang Peak with Thorong La Pass Trek (18 Days) and Yala Peak (15 Days).
One does not require extensive professional training or past climbing experiences to submit these trekking peaks, however, being physically sound is important. Climbing trekking peaks requires the use of ice axes, crampons, ropes and special climbing boots. Your climbing guide will instruct and supervise the use of all climbing gears. All our climbing leaders/guides have mountaineering experience of over 20 years, some have summited the Mount Everest as well. We only appoint guides who have already climbed the peak they are assigned.
Adventure Club Trek organizes a special climbing training course at the base camp before summiting the peak. We aim to boost your self-confidence and ensure that you are well-prepared to scale the summit of your choice successfully and safely. We also provide all personal and group tents and climbing gears. Our aim is to make your peak climbing in Nepal experience hassle-free, cost-effective and safe.
