8000m & Above Peak Climbing

8000m & Above Peak Climbing

Peak climbing in Nepal Himalayas is a dream for many climbers. With world’s most of high mountains and more than 1300 snow capped peaks, Nepal is justifiably the most popular destination for mountaineering expeditions. After the first ascent on Everest in 1953, people knew more about amazing climbing opportunities in Nepal. The peaks we are talking about are not Everest , Cho Oyu or the Manaslu, but peaks with lower height and easier climbing.Often these peaks are referred as “trekking peaks of Nepal” by some western writers as most of them can be combined to your trek to Everest , Annapurna or Langtang region. However “trekking peaks of Nepal” is a misguiding and romantic phrase. Almost all these peaks are higher than the highest mountains in Europe, US or Africa. Some of them do require technical climbing skill and only a professional climbers should attempt. However some others can be climbed by first timers with good fitness and basic climbing skills.
