Kanga, Mardi Himal, and other summits of Nepal. Join a fully
organized climb or a guided
"Trekking Peaks" of Nepal gives hobby-climbers
an opportunity to tackle a high Himalayan peak without
having to organize a major expedition. Although
these peaks are lower than their more famous cousins
- the 8000 meter peaks - many of the climbs are
no less demanding and adventurous in nature.
These Trekking Peak climbing trips offer a chance
to climb a Himalayan summit and, a taste of being
in the `white wilderness,' without burning a big
home in your pocket!The
Trekking Peak climbing trips we offer are run in
the popular trekking areas with relatively easy
access to the mountains. Most of these trips can
be completed within a short period of time. For
instance Naya Khang in the Langtang valley can be
completed in less than twenty days with plenty of
time allocated for acclimatization.
on the Pisang & Chulu trip, you can 'bag'
two summits in under one month with an itinerary
that also takes you on the famous Annapurna Circuit
trek. In the Everest region the popular peaks
are Mera Peak in the remote Hinku Valley, Island
Peak, Khongm-tse, and Lobuche peaks near the Everest
Base Camp area.
most of these climbs require little or no previous
mountaineering experience, it is essential that
participants are in excellent physical condition
and have some outdoor background. Knowledge of
use of ice-axe, crampons and ropes will come in
the actual climb begins we will teach you
the basics of handling ropes and other climbing
devices including safety considerations.

guides who are registered with the Nepal

our climbing guides are local lads who are
