Peak Climbing in Nepal
Peak climbing expedition is usually both technically and physically very challenging activity.
Nepal with 1310 identified Himalayan peaks over 6000m including 8 out of 14 highest peaks in the world is unquestionably a premier mountaineering and climbing destination for thousands of climbers and mountaineers testing their skills and endurance and fulfilling their desire to summit a Himalayan peak and marvel the world from its rooftop. Currently there are 326 peaks open for climbing and mountaineering in Nepal.
Peak climbing expedition is usually both technically and physically very challenging activity. It requires considerable climbing skills and in Nepal usually is done on sub-eight thousand meters high mountains, where acclimatization is easier and more effort can be devoted to climbing skill rather then shier brute force to combat altitude.
Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has been given the authority by the Mountaineering Section of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA) of issuing peak climbing permits.

Peak climbing requires several considerations before one can embark on actual climbing activity. There are various rules and restrictions imposed by the government regulating peak climbing activities due to economic, safety, environmental and cultural concerns. Mountains are part of natural resource and most countries, even those wealthy with mineral resources derive fees and income from permits to climb special mountains like Denali in the USA or Aconcagua in Argentina. For Nepalese government fees are an important part of export income.

Naya Kanga Peak Climbing 07th March-2011
