Short Introduction of Peak Climbing

Nestled in the lap of the Himalayas, Nepal is a dreamland for any mountain lover. The tiny Himalayan nations boast eight out of the ten highest peaks in the world. The snow-capped peaks in the Himalayas are usually at a height of somewhere between 6000-8848 meters above the sea level. Island Peak (“Imja Tse” in Nepali) which is a peak in the Sagarmatha National Park towering at around 6,000 meters is one of the top peaks for climbing in Nepal. It only takes around 2 days of actual climbing (15 days total trip) and reveals magnificent views from the top which includes a close-up of, Mt Lhotse, the fourth highest peak in the world. Some other top peaks for climbing in Nepal are; Pokhalde peak at around 5800 meters in the Everest Region, Dhampus Peak at around 6000 meters in the Annapurna Region, Yala peak at about 5500 meters in the Langtang Region and Mera Peak at around 6500 meters. These peaks provide an incredible climbing experience as you go high into the heart of the Himalayas and experience some of the highest points on Earth. On the way, you are sure to experience untouched ethnic villages of various groups of people living in the different regions and their lifestyles. And if you want to push yourself further, there are always higher peaks available; Mt Lhotse which is at a staggering 8500 meters, Mt. Makalu at a similar height, Mt Manaslu at an altitude of 8150 meters and obviously the top of the world, Mt. Everest at 8848 meters above the sea level, etc. Spring is the best time to climb a peak in Nepal as the conditions are as ideal as it can be while autumn (from late September to early December) is also a viable option.
