Trekking peak


Trekking peak

The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has categorized the mountains of Nepal into various classifications, one of these being called trekking peak. A trekking peak is a mountain under 7,000 metres (22,965 ft) that is considered climbable by anyone with a moderate amount of mountaineering experience and skills. While some can be climbed without crampons or an ice axe, most require use of this equipment. In order to attempt a trekking peak, a climbing permit (non-refundable) must be obtained from the NMA in Kathmandu. Peaks above 7,000 m are categorized as expedition peaks and demand much higher permit fees.

The trekking peaks of Nepal are as follows:

As of 2007, climbing permits cost $350 USD for one to four members, an additional $40 USD each for the next four members and $25 USD each for the final four members. Maximum team size is 12 members.
