We offer climbing expeditions to Island Peak, Mera, Lobuche, Chulu East or West, Pisang, Naya Kanga, Mardi Himal, and other summits of Nepal. Join a fully organised climb or a guided backpacking trip.
The "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal give hobby-climbers an opportunity to tackle a high Himalayan peak without having to organise a major expedition. Although these peaks are lower than their more famous cousins - the 8000-meter peaks - many of the climbs are no less demanding and adventurous in nature.
These Trekking Peak climbing trips offer a chance to climb a Himalayan summit and, a taste of being in the `white wilderness,' without burning a big hole in your pocket! The Trekking Peak climbing trips we offer are run in the popular trekking areas with relatively easy access to the mountains. Most of these trips can be completed within a short period of time. For instance Naya Khang in the Langtang valley can be completed in less than twenty days with plenty of time allocated for acclimatisation.
Whereas on the Pisang & Chulu trip, you can 'bag' two summits in less than one month with an itinerary that also takes you on the famous Annapurna Circuit trek. In the Everest region the popular peaks are Mera Peak in the remote Hinku Valley, Island Peak, Khongm-tse and Lobuche peaks near the Everest Base Camp area.
Though most of these climbs require little or no previous mountaineering experience, it is essential that participants are in excellent physical condition and have some outdoor background. Knowledge of use of ice axe, crampons and ropes will come in handy.
Before the actual climb begins we will teach you the basics of handling ropes and other climbing devices including safety considerations. All our climbing treks are guided by trained guides who are registered with the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Each of our climbing guides are locals who are intimately familiar with the mountains and routes they guide on. Join one of our Trekking Peak climbing treks to experience the pains and joys of climbing in the high Himalayas - a privilege that once was reserved only for the fabled 'expedition climbers.'
