PEAK CLIMBING MEDIUM
- PEAK CLIMBING MEDIUM
Swiss Family Trekking & Expedition Nepal offers also Peak Climbing and Trekking. We organize climbing expeditions to 6700m peaks in the Nepal Himalayan mountains. The "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal gives hobby-climbers an opportunity to tackle a high altitude Himalayan peak without having to organize a major expedition. Although these peaks are lower than their more famous cousins - the 8000 meter peaks - many of the climbs are no less demanding and adventurous in nature. These climbing treks in Nepal, offer a chance to climb a Himalayan summit and, a taste of being in the 'wilderness', without burning a big hole in your pocket! We can offer you very popular trekking areas with relatively easy access to the mountains. Most of these trips can be completed within a short period of time. For instance Naya Khang in the Langtang valley can be completed in less than twenty days, with plenty of time allocated for acclimatization. Whereas on the Pisang & Chulu trip, you can 'bag' two summits in under one month with an itinerary that also takes you on the famous Annapurna Circuit trek. In the Everest region the popular peaks are Mera Peak in the remote Hinku Valley, Island Peak, Khongma Tse, and Lobuche peaks near the Everest Base Camp area. Although most of these nepalese peaks require little or no previous mountaineering experience, it is essential that participants are in excellent physical condition and have some outdoor background. Knowledge of the use of an ice axe, crampons and ropes will come in handy. Before the actual climb begins we will teach you the basics of handling ropes and other climbing devices including safety considerations. Trained guides who are registered with the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) guide all our Himalayan Mountaineering Expeditions. All our climbing guides are local lads, who are intimately familiar with the mountains and routes they guide on. Join one of our Peak climbing tour and/or trek to experience the pains and joys of climbing in the high Himalayas - a privilege that once was reserved only for the fabled 'Himalayan expedition climbers'.
