Introduction to Mountaineering Adventure
For the more adventurous traveler there is 18 minor peaks open alpine climbing under Nepal Mountaineering Association. The climbing of these peak is controlled under the rules and regulation formulated by this association. Detailed information and application for climbing permits are available from the Association’s office or contact your trekking agency in Kathmandu. It should be noted that in most cases the climbing of these minor peaks (Trekking Peaks) require snow and ice climbing experience. Trekking Agents provide qualified and trained climbing guides to take non-climbers for convenience, safety and expected successes. By Himalayan standards these are considered minor peaks, but in fact some of them provide relative challenging snow and ice climbing of high standard, and more so in winter. The royalty for these peaks ranges from U.S. $ 150.00 to U. S $ 300.00 depending on the particular peak for up to 10 member climbing team.
