More than any thing else, Nepal is best known for it mountains and mountaineering. Nowhere else earth can you find such a concentration of high snow capped mountains and have the opportunity to climb some of the highest peak in the world.
Of course, Everest immediately comes to mind when people think of Nepal but what is less often known is that Nepal is home to another seven peaks over 8000 meters and innumerable other between six and eight thousand meters. Currently more than 326 peaks are available for expeditions with an additional 33 minor peaks being designated as “Trekking Peaks”.
The climbing of these peaks is controlled under the rules and regulations formulated by this Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).
