Nepal Mountain Expeditions
When the earth touches the sky…
Nepal is blessed with 8 out of the 14 highest peaks in the world and thousands of mountaineers visit Nepal to realize their dream of standing on the summit of Himalayas. There are 1310 identified Himalayan peaks in Nepal out of which 326 peaks have been opened for mountaineering.
Mountaineering expeditions are similar to challenging treks but such expeditions involves basic mountaineering above the snow line using ice axes, crampons, ropes and necessary climbing gear under the careful instruction and supervision of the climbing leader/guide.
Interested adventure seekers who seek to do this expedition need to be physically and psychologically strong in order to brave the harsh and challenging voyage ahead of the mountain expedition. A minimum of 30 days is required for the trekking and mountaineering package.
Mountain climbing in Nepal instantly became a passionate adventure treat for mountaineers after the country first opened doors to climbers back in 1949. Though the attempts to climb mountains started from the early years of the 20th century but no one had been able to claim triumph over it until 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey set their first ever foot on the summit of Mt. Everest. Soon after the pair’s first historical mountaineering victory, the appeal of mountaineering grew manifold luring thousands of mountaineers from all around the world to scale various Himalayan heights. Despite all the hardship of mountaineering, adventurers have been fighting their way through the summit in a hope of making their dream of adventure come true.
