The trekking peaks of Nepal offer great potential for adventure and exploration and are less expensive than large-scale expeditions.The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has classified 33 peaks as trekking peaks in Nepal, they range from 5500 mtrs to 6500mtrs and they are divided into expedition peaks group A and Group B.In the past a liason officer was required to accompany the group but this requirement has now been scrapped.The royalty received by the Nepali Government is regulated by altitude and the season you are planning to climb.
In spite of the fact that the altitude of the peaks is below 6500m, they offer a serious challenge often passing over rocky, icy and snowy terrain. The use of ropes and other mountaineering equipment is also necessary on these treks. It is strongly recommended that the climbers having technical know-how on snow and ice climbing before attempting a peak climb.Except for a few easy peaks such as Mera Peak (6476m) the climbing of these peaks is monitored by Nepal Mountaineering Association and is subject to the rules & regulations formulated by the Association.
It is very important when climbing a peak that enough time is built into the itinerary for acclimatisation and it is also well worth considering adding a couple of days to any peak trekking itinerary for any bad weather that may be incurred (many peak climbing expeditions have failed simply by not allowing for the weather conditions or the health of the team members.
