Peak Climbing in Nepal has been one of the most popular adventure sports. Peak climbing has become popular, especially after the successful summit made by Tenzing Norge Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hilary on the Mt. Everest (8848 m) in 1953. Moreover, It was possible as Nepal is the home of the eight highest peaks above 8,000 meters height [among the 14 mountains in the world], subsequently, there are more than 1,300 mountains above 6000 meters which offer the joys of mountaineering or peak climbing. Of them, only some 400 are only yet open for the purpose of climbing and organizing any kinds of adventure sports, including peak climbing, mountaineering, and expedition.
The seven peaks above 8000-meter heights beside Mt. Everest are-- Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8163m) and Annapurna (8091m). Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) is one of the authorized agencies in Nepal to give permission to climb mountains bellow 2,200 ft. While, the mountainous section of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation issues the permits for climbing on the peaks having an elevation above 2,200 ft. The charge for peak climbing depends on the number of members involved in a group and the height of the mountain you want to climb as well as the adventurous sport you want to organize in the mountain areas.
