Expedition in Nepal
In Nepal, there are 1313 identified Himalayan Peaks and 326 peaks have been opened from mountaineering. Nepal is a country widely recognize for its beautiful Himalaya Mountains. Among the 10 highest peaks in the world, eight, including the highest peak Mt. Everest, crown this country. Nothing on earth can beat the exhilaration of scaling them. Expedition can range from climbing highest peak of the world to climbing lower peaks. Although by Himalayan standards 33 trekking peaks are considered minor peaks, they nonetheless provides snow and ice-climbing, and are technically quite challenging expedition teams can apply for permit at mountaineering section oft he Ministry of Culture, Tourism & Civil Aviation.
Expedition is a prime attraction of Nepal. The mountains of Nepal have stood as irresistible landmarks for the world's adventurers since Nepal opened its doors to visitors in the 1950s. With eight of the highest peaks in the world, it is hardly surprising that Nepal has been the stage for some of the most outstanding achievements in the world of mountaineering. The dauntless icy peaks have since decades challenged the bodies and spirits of those daring enough to want to conquer the hulks.
Mountaineering Expedition is similar to challenging treks, however, includes basic mountaineering above the snow line using ice axe, crampons ropes and necessary climbing gears under the supervision and instruction from the climbing leader/guide. People wanting to do this type of expedition needs psychological and physical stamina plus prior experience is certainly an advantage, but not essential. Minimum 30 days required for the trekking and mountaineering. We have some Himalayas day by day programs
