Peak Climbing in Nepal:

Known as the Himalayan Kingdom, Nepal has 1310 mountains (the major portion of the Mountain range.) which are over 5500 meters (18,090 ft) to 8848m (29,028ft) above sea level. This makes our country exceptionally popular for mountaineers.

Since 1978, the Nepal Mountaineering Association has had the authority to issue climbing permits for small-scale peaks. Thanks to our NMA membership, Seven Star Trekking & Tours can see to permitting without the previously complicated application process.

Peak climbing in Nepal instantly became a passionate adventure treat for mountaineers after the country first opened doors to climbers back in 1949. Though the attempts to climb mountains started from the early years of the 20th century but no one had been able to claim triumph over it until 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary (New Zealand) and Tenzing Norgey set their first ever foot on the summit of Mt. Everest. Soon after the pair’s first historical mountaineering victory, the appeal of mountaineering grew manifold luring thousands of mountaineers from all around the world to scale various Himalayan heights. Despite all the hardship of mountaineering, adventurers have been fighting their way through the summit in a hope of making their dream of adventure come true.
