Introduction to Peak Climbing in Nepal
Peak climbing in Nepal is a challenging tourist activity. Nepal peak climbing takes you to the summit of the Himalayas and offers magnificent Himalayan views. After the successful summit of Mt. Everest by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary, many adventure seekers chose Nepal as their destination for the climbing Trip. And climbing is one of the main adventure activities in Nepal today.
Nepal’s majestic snow-capped peaks provide the same thrill to both peak climbers and mountaineering enthusiasts. So peak climbing and mountaineering are famous in Nepal from the very beginning. If you want to do more adventurous activities than trekking, then Peak climbing in Nepal is the best option for you.
There are many things to consider before climbing a peak in Nepal. Because the government has imposed various rules and restrictions while regulating climbing activities. For trekking peaks, you have to pay a royalty to the Nepal government. And a royalty of USD 70 to USD 250 per person is payable depending on the season and particular peak.
The issued permit is valid for one month. And an extra charge of 25% of the initial fee for the extension of the permit for each extra week. Almost all of Nepal’s trekking peaks are higher than other countries’ high mountains. And most of these peaks are not very technical so any fit person can climb them. But some Peaks need technical climbing skills and only professional climbers should climb.

There are 1310 Himalayan peaks in Nepal above 6000 meters and 8 out of 14 in the world above 8000 meters. Since 326 peaks have been opened by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) as Nepal Trekking Peaks, Odyssey Treks have guided many climbers to the summit.
Although there are many peaks, 33 peaks are available for climbing and mountaineering by the Government of Nepal. This makes Nepal a great mountaineering and climbing destination for tourists. Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has classified 33 peaks in Nepal as ‘trekking peaks’ and 15 peaks in Group “A” and 18 peaks in Group “B” out of 33 peaks.
The peaks in Group “B” are not higher than 6500 meters and can be climbed from the base camp. Nepal trekking peaks need a peak climbing permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association and the trekking company must be a member of the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
