NEPAL Mountaineering Expedition
Expedition in Nepal 2007/2008
Climbing in Nepal
Nepal is a paradise for adventure seekers. We
are blessed with eight of the ten highest mountains to
experience or perhaps to climb, wild turbulent rivers to observe
or white water raft, river gorges to appreciate, including the
Kaligandaki-the world's deepest. And thousands of hours of
trails to trek, both easy and formidable, or even to mountain
bike. Because, Nepal's mountains have been and still is mostly
road less, distances are measured in the time it takes to walk
from one place to another, not not in Kilometers (or miles).
Trekking in Nepal is known as the best walking on earth. One can
trek to the base camp of the world's highest peaks or walk
through the world's deepest gorge. A trek to mustang takes one
to the stark landscapes of the Tibetan plateau. White water
rafting in the swirling rapids, Jungle safari on elephant back,
Mountain biking and even balloon flights all give a new meaning
to enjoying an adventures life.
This categorization is similar to challenging treks, minimum 30 days required for the trekking and mountaineering, however includes basic mountaineering above the snow line using ice axe, crampons ropes and necessary climbing gears under the supervision and instruction from the climbing guide/leader.
People wanting to do this type of expedition needs psychological and physical stamina plus prior experience is certainly an advantage, but not essential. We have some Himalayas day by day programmes. Feel free to write us of your requirements and we shall forward to you more detail with approximately cost.
