About Peak Climbing in Nepal

Nepal is known as the Himalayan country and its for no reason. 8 of the highest mountain in the world lie here including Mt. Everest (8848m.), Kanchenjunga (8586m.), Mt. Lhotse (8516m.), Mt. Makalu (8463m.) Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m.), Mt. Annapurna (8091m.) and Mt. Cho Oyu (8291m). It was through mountaineering that Nepal got its recognition as a tourist destination around the world when Mt. Everest was scaled by Late Tenzing Norgay and Sir Edmond Hillary in 1953.

The mountains are categorized into A and B. While the mountains in the A categories fall under the jurisdiction of the Government of Nepal and the permits have to be acquired from The Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation issues permits. There are also relatively smaller peaks in Nepal that are easily accessible with less pre-planning and logistics required. This is the one reason peak climbing has become quite famous in Nepal due to its ease of access. The smaller trekking peaks between 5,587 m and 6,654 m. come under the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) and the permits are issued through them.
