CLIMBING IN NEPAL
October 11,2016' & 2017
The Trekking Peaks of Nepal gives recreational-climbers
an opportunity to tackle a high Himalayan peak without having to be part of
a major organized expedition. Although these peaks are lower than their
more famous cousins - the 8000-meter peaks - many of the climbs are no less adventurous in nature.

Our Everest Base Camp Trek is no more than
a high altitude walk. If you want to push higher, bring crampons and an ice axe and add a
spectacular Island Peak climb to 6189m to your itinerary. Participants must
be in good physical condition. Since previous climbing experience is not
essential, having some outdoor background will be useful. Moreover, in order to
ensure a safe climbing trip, you are provided basic knowledge on handling
ropes as well as about other climbing equipment before starting the actual
Take a pick!
October 11th each year-
Three fantastic itineraries to pick from all
in one expedition! The "Triple Crown" is an Everest boot camp
or used as general mountaineering course for those who aspire to climb big
mountains all while testing skills in the most beautiful mountain range on the
planet. Island Peak is less intense and the only technical aspect is the
crossing of one crevasse near the summit. It's an ideal opportunity to test
yourself and learn about the use of climbing equipment.
