Being a Himalayan nation, Nepal has hundreds of mountain peaks of varying altitudes. In fact, out of 14 peaks over 8,000 meters, 8 are in Nepal alone. It can give you an idea of a number of other smaller peaks situated here. In the context of Peak Climbing, here, Peaks are the snow-capped mountains of altitude between 5,500 and 6,800 meters, so you will be ascending the peaks in this range.
Peak Climbing can be as strenuous as it can be fun. It demands your physical fitness, endurance, passion, and certain basic technical skill of climbing. It will be the test of your will to awe and adventure, which in turn will prepare you to summit the taller mountains. Island Peak Climbing, Mera Peak, Chulu Peak, Pisang Peak, Yala Peak, Naya Kanga Peak, and Lobuche Peak Climbing are some popular peak climbings.
You need a special permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association to climb a peak. To apply for the permit, you have to make it through a certified trekking agency. After all, you must hire a guide otherwise the permit is not issued.
Basically, Nepal’s mountains have been divided into two categories, namely, expedition peaks and trekking peaks. The peaks above 7,000 meters fall to the former category whereas the peaks below 7,000 meters fall to the latter. The Peak Climbing we are talking about is done on the latter. There are 18 minor peaks open for alpine climbing.
We seek adventure. We look for the wilderness. Of course, we have managed to suppress our evolutionary trait—that we had developed when we used to live in caves, and hunt and forage for the food—through the development of science and technology. Nevertheless, if we pay attention to ourselves, our itch for adventure resurfaces to which we must give an appropriate outlet for our physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Hence the Peak Climbing in Nepal to our need.
