Small scale peak climbing in Everest region of Nepal has become one of the most attractive activities for alpine climbers and high adventure trekking. This beautiful region of Nepal is a haven for anyone who wishes to conquer high mountains.
This region is the land of many of the world’s highest peaks. Mt. Everest,(8850m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8201m),Mt. Amadablam (6858m) are all located in region. There are scores of other small scale climbable peaks also clustered within this “top of the world” region.
The great history of mountaineering achievements started in the Nepalese Himalaya when the two legendary mountaineering figures- Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa successfully scaled the top of Mt. Everest in 1953.
Compared to full scale mountain expedition in Nepal, the regulations relating to trekking peaks are relatively simple. A permit is required, which is issued by the NMA upon payment of a royalty fee. Trek Himalayan will arrange the trekking peak permits within 24 hours and organize all accommodation before/after expedition
Preparation for climbing a trekking peak is far simpler than for then a full scale mountain expedition. The climbing period for most of the trekking peaks rarely exceeds more than a few days so large amounts of base camp equipment are not usually required. Also, due to their relatively low altitude, the amount of climbing equipment required is proportionally less. In general, preparation for climbing a trekking peak is little different from preparing for a trek.
For lower altitude peak climbing in this region, spring and autumn are considered the best seasons.
Permits and entry fees
The system of trekking permits that was in force for some years has been replaced by TIMS card in most of the general trekking areas such as Everest, Annapurna and Langtang. This means that for these areas trekkers need to obtain TIMS card before setting off. Trek Himalayan will ensure everything is done correctly allowing one to travel in peace.
