Days: 22 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)
Min Group Size: 1 / Max Group Size: 14

Nirekha Peak Climbing is an exciting adventure located in the Khumbu region just east of the Cho La Pass. Entailing mesmerizing Himalayan background, adventurous treks and exciting Sherpa culture, the peak climbing journey is a delight to undertake. Although established recently, the peak climbing is generating more interests because of the generous accumulation of hallmarks of the region. Trekking through glaciers, moraines and high altitude passes, this is sure to be a lifetime experience for any adventure enthusiast.

Nirekha Peak Climbing starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. After a short stay in the valley, the trip begins. During your stay, you will be visiting the UNESCO World Heritage namely Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, and Swayambhunath. From Kathmandu, you fly to Lukla and then start the trek to Phakding. The trail takes you through the beautiful rhododendron forests and traditional Sherpa villages like Pangboche, Pheriche, and Dhole. You spend a day for acclimatization at Namche Bazaar which is a fascinating tourist site. Along with Buddhist monastery and Sherpa museum, this place carries years of mountaineering history and the legacy of the heroic Sherpas. You hike to Gokyo Ri (5360m) and explore the Gokyo lakes during your second acclimatization period before the climb. The trail to the top consists of glacial moraines, rocks, and snow but the climb is worth it, as from the top you get to see the breathtaking views of mountains like the Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,414 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Nuptse (7,861 m) and many others. This entire journey along with the hike to Kala Patthar provides wonderful mountain views of the Everest ranges as well. During this trek, you will also be rewarded with the heart-warming hospitality and beautiful culture of the Sherpa. September - December, and March-May are considered the best months for this trek. Although the trek route is of moderate difficulty, only experienced climbers should attempt this climb as it requires technical mountaineering skills.
