Nepal has varied terrain, and the elevation ranges from 60 m above sea level to the world’s highest, 8,848 m on Everest. Hence Nepal is a trekking and climbing paradise.
You can enjoy various types on trekking in Nepal based on climate, elevation, and difficulty levels.
Nepal consists of a network of trails known as Great Himalayan Trails and its length ranges from Humla in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east.
Majority of trekkers, who want to experience the Nepali treks come through the nation’s only international airport – Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu.
For trekkers, there are many UNESCO heritage sites, national parks and conservation areas in addition to the normal treks in and around hilly and himalayan areas.
Climbing in Nepal is incomparable to any climbing you can get in any other countries. Nepal has at least 1310 Himalayan peaks, which are above 6000 m in height.
Among the 14 peaks over 8,000 m in the world, Nepal has eight of them. They are
Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Cho Oyu, and Annapurna.
Climbing is physically challenging, so we recommend you to start with trekking. You can thus acclimatize and get to assess all the peaks yourself. Then you can start climbing.
Best of luck.
