Mountaineering in NEPAL…Physical challenges that rediscover life..

Nepal is the ultimate destination for mountaineers & adventure enthusiasts. Nepal’s towering mountains have been captivating the imagination of mountain climbers for centuries. Every year hundreds of expeditions trudge up the grueling Himalayas. Nothing on planet earth can beat the exhilaration of scaling any one of these peaks,as tall as they stand. No matter what your goals or choices may be, trekking a “peak” or one of those 8000 meter “alpine mountains” Encounters Nepal will meticulously plan your program & hike with you all the way right up there. We’ve done it down the years. The Nepalese Himalayas is one of the world's greatest trekking destinations. It is a land of snow peaks and fluttering prayer flags, yak caravans and epic mountain adventures. It’s a place for the bold & the brave.

There are two organizations control climbing expeditions in Nepal. The ministry of tourism and civil aviation (MoTCA) is responsible for major expeditions and the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) is responsible for trekking peaks. The basic rules are the higher the peak you intend to climb, the greater the fees.

Mountaineering expeditions are similar to challenging treks but such expeditions involve basic mountaineering above the snow line using ice axes, crampons, ropes and necessary climbing gear under the careful instruction and supervision of the climbing leader/guide.
Adventure seekers who choose to do this expedition need to be physically and psychologically strong in order to brave the harsh and challenging voyage ahead of any mountaineering expedition. A minimum of 30 days is required for a trekking and mountaineering venture.

The rules for mountaineering on major peaks require a minimum of six months advance application to the ministry of tourism and civil aviation for a climbing permit completed application, endorsement of National Alpine Club, of the country organizing the expedition. Short biographies of all the members of expedition team (with photograph and signature) map and photograph of the mountain indicating climbing route and approach route map are part of the procedures that finally get you your permit to do the climb.

CLIMBING 'EXPEDITION PEAKS'…Irrespective of your physical attributes or your credentials…a clarion call to the wild is welcome to one & all…
Possessing within its borders eight of the highest peaks in the world, Nepal has been the focus of some of the most outstanding achievements in the world of mountaineering. There are some 326 peaks in Nepal opened for mountaineering today. The Government of Nepal opened around 175 peaks in the last two years to mark the Mount Everest Golden Jubilee Celebrations.
The Mountaineering Section of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation issues climbing permits to scale the Nepal Himalayas in all seasons. Certain official documents are required to seek permission for climbing peaks. Around 121 peaks do not require liaison officers for expeditions. Fees or royalties depend upon the altitude of the peak starting at US $ 1000 for peaks below 6501 meters and rising by US$ 500 for every 500 meters.

Most of the trekkers & peak climbers that flock to Nepal test themselves on two classic walking expeditions: the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit treks. But many excellent hikes hide in the shadows of these two treks, promising fewer crowds and greater solitude -- and also the chance to make a positive difference in the poorest areas of the country. Peak Climbers should or ought to be selective about the peaks they climb as this could be most beneficial for the communities that live in the areas where these peaks stand. Encountersnepal has a policy that encourages peak climbers to go on ventures where peaks are g geographically based in areas with the largest community bearings so that the community can benefit from the ventures undertaken by trekkers & peak climbers.

From the rolling country of the Himalayan foothills to seriously high-altitude treks on rock and ice, many of these lesser-known routes have been united under the banner of Nepal’s Great Himalayan ranges that stretches from east to west & north to south of the country; & rolls across the borders to Bhutan, Tibet & India. Encounters Nepal, in its bid to encourage tourists to explore more of the country, seeks to develop more exciting avenues in the Nepal section alone which possesses a mind-blowing 1,700km of tracks, divided into 10 different sections that make up the whole spectrum of Nepal’s vast natural reserves that cover vast swathes of pine forests, glaciers & some of the most stunning peaks & mountains in the world.
