Peak Climbing in Nepal

Trekking Peak-the designation trekking peak is an unfortunate misnomer because most of the peaks are significant mountaineering challenges. Few of the trekking peaks are walk-ups and some of them technically demanding and dangerous. However, the trekking peak climbing requires some technical skill and previous experience. The weather is often bad and may force you to sit in your tent for a day or more. Usually, a well-equipped base camp is necessary and the ascent of a peak require one or two high camps that must be established. Most of the peaks require a minimum of two days to climb and can take as long as three weeks. Since 1978 the Nepal Mountaineering Association NMA has had the authority to issue permission for small-scale attempts on 18 peaks. Though it is not necessary to go through a long application process, hire and equip a liaison officer, or organize a huge assault on a major peak in order to try Himalayan Mountaineering.
