Climbing in Nepal

As the land of the Himalaya, Nepal is a mountain lover’s dream. The Nepalese range is formidable, with 1310 mountains over 6000m and 8 of the world’s highest peaks residing within the territory as well as Nepal is perfect for those wanting a challenge and an exciting adventure. There are 326 peaks open to mountaineering and 103 of those are yet to be climbed! Nepal has been attracting thrill seekers for hundreds of years, with people travelling from all over the world hoping to be the first humans to summit these lofty peaks. The mountaineering industry was thriving by the 1960s, with various private companies offering guided expeditions to tourists. The industry is still very popular today and private companies, like Himalayan Circuit, continue to take tourists on stunning treks and up challenging peaks, using trusted local guides in order to give visitors the trip of a lifetime! 

We would recommend you plan your expedition around the weather! Pre-monsoon season is optimal for mountaineering, as the weather is better during this time, particularly at altitude. Autumn is also a good time for those aiming to climb the slightly lower peaks.

Before you make the journey, there are some things you need to think about. Whether you are climbing a peak or trekking to a base camp, it is a physically demanding adventure to undertake. We would therefore recommend you do some sort of fitness training prior to your expedition; this should include spending some time wearing a weighted backpack so that you become used to and comfortable with carrying it for long periods of time. Whilst most of the Nepalese trekking peaks are not hugely technical and can be completed by a relatively fit person, we would recommend you familiarise yourself with basic climbing equipment such as ropes and crampons. We are not asking you to become experts but having some basic knowledge might be of use. Experienced, local guides who are intimately familiar with the mountains will also be on hand to help.

Here at Himalayan Circuit, we offer a range of different trekking tours including an expedition to Everest base camp as well as other, lesser known but no less exciting, peaks. All our tours include accommodation, airport transfers, any entry fees and English speaking guides! Check out our website (https://himalayancircuit.com/) to browse our selection of tours and which one you think is best suited to you and your interests! Alternatively, get in touch and we can help you customise your dream trip.

5 Reasons to go Climbing in Nepal

  1. The Great Himalayan Trail. This trial stretches from in the Kanchenjunga in the East to Mt Saipal in the West. At 4,500 km, the Great Himalayan Trail is one of the longest and highest footpaths in the world! The trail snakes through the landscape offering trekkers incredible views of the surrounding landscape. 
  1. Whether you are a climbing novice or expert, there is a mountain in Nepal for you. From those difficult climbs of over 8,000m to the less complex ones ranging between 5,800 m and 6,584 m in altitude. Peaks below 5,800 m are the easiest, these don’t require a specific climbing permit! You are sure to find an expedition best suited to you and your ability. 
  1. Nepal is an incredibly peaceful country. People are very friendly and love welcoming guests. The culture is diverse and unique owing to its 125 ethnic groups. Be sure to make some time to experience this culture and get to know the locals during your down time from trekking. 
  1. Scenery. Although it lies in the sub-tropical climatic zone, due to the frequent and dramatic changes in altitude means that the country experiences a range of climatic conditions. Nature in Nepal is therefore incredibly varied, and you will get to see a lot of it during your trekking adventure!
