Every autumn and spring season we have been organizing Peak climbing & Mountaineering Expeditions for the more adventurous traveler, there are 18 minor peaks opened for Alpine climbing under Nepal Mountaineering Association. This association was created to control climbing peaks in the Nepalese Himalayas and to protect the health and safety of climbers. As an active Expeditions Agency, We can make all arrangements for your peak-climbing excursion as well as acquiring the necessary permits. All climbers are required to obtain permission for peak climbing through treks & Expeditions agencies of Nepal. We also provide trained, qualified, and experienced climbing Sherpa guides to ensure the safety and success of your expedition. By Himalayan standards, these peaks may seem minor in scale, but in reality they offer an exciting challenge, giving you a taste of adventure on snow-covered Mountains. Mountain climbing in Nepal is one of the most attraction and courageous parts rather than high adventure trekking. This beautiful tiny Himalayan country Nepal is one of the paradises that have met anyone who wish to conquer high mountains by their own foot.
