Peak Climbing in Nepal

Peak ClimbingThe Himalayas are the huge mountain range stretching 3000km east to west. The Nepal portion of the Himalayas is the largest and highest, stretching about 800km and includes eight peaks that rise above 8000m including Mt. Everest (known to Nepalese as Sagarmatha).

The Nepal Himalaya has become a great theatre of mountaineering activities. There are many Himalayan peaks open for mountaineering expeditions. In the Nepal Himalaya, there are 240 peaks above 6000m and more than 1300 peaks of 6000m and below.

After Nepal opened its doors to foreign travelers in 1950, it became possible to challenge these mountains. In the beginning, it was simply a matter of conquering the 8000m peaks, but gradually climbers began to attempt various untried routes. Today, people have been attempting to climb the mountains without auxiliary oxygen and many of them have even set world records such as NOMAD's Late Chairman Babu Chiri Sherpa who successfully entered the Guinness Book of World Records 2000 for the longest stay of 21 hours on the summit of Mount Everest without auxiliary oxygen and summited Everest with an incredible speed of 16.56hrs.
