Peak Climbing In Nepal Spring Adventure 2017

Nepal has been the focus of outstanding achievements in the world of peak climbing expeditions, with its eight peaks above 8000 meters. It has challenged the minds and bodies of those who have dared for decades. Among the identified 1310 peaks above 6000 meter, one quarter are officially opened for mountaineering activities. Climbing these peaks is the next step beyond ‘simply’ trekking, before scaling the 8000-meter peaks.

Although there are many climbing peaks in Nepal, some are evidently more popular than the others are. Some of the most popular trekking peaks are listed below and are perfect for your spring adventure.

Island Peak

Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft), also known as Imja Tse, is a popular trekking-peak located in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It was named Island Peak by Eric Shipton’s party in 1951, since it appears as an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche.

Altitude Chart of Island Peak Climb

Ever since a Swiss team first climbed it in 1956, Island peak climbing has popularly been used as the trekking-peak in the Khumbu region.

It can be one of the most popular destinations for adventure enthusiasts. Starting from Lukla, the trek passes through numerous Sherpa villages, offering majestic views of high mountains of the region. Nuptse (7,879m/25,849ft), Lhotse (8,501m/27,890ft), Lhotse middle peak (8,410m/27,562ft), makes a semicircle in the north. The view of Makalu (8475m/27,805ft) in the east, Baruntse and Ama Dablam in the south adds more charm to the trek.

Mera Peak

Mera Peak (6,476m/21,247ft), known as the highest trekking-peak in the world, is located at Hinku valley in the northern Nepal. Mera has three different summits, Mera South, Mera North and Mera Central. Mera peak climb is one of the most demanding and challenging trek ever undertaken in Nepal. Experience of previous high-altitude climbing is necessary to make an attempt to Mera summit.

mera-peak-altitude-chart

Mera Peak climbing be a pivotal ascent for all those trekkers, experienced or amateur, who dream of conquering the mountain. The adrenaline rush trek commences from Lukla, passing through the wilderness of the Khumbu region to Zatar La pass (4,610m/15,124ft) before heading towards Mera base camp (4800m/15,700ft). Afterwards, the majority of the ascent requires basic ice axe and crampon skills.

On a clearer day, from the summit of Mera Peak, five of the highest mountains in the world are clearly visible, namely; Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,906), Lhotse (8,516m/27,939ft), Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), Makalu (8,463m/27,765), and Kangchenjunga (8,586m/28,169ft) in the Far East.

Pisang Peak

Pisang Peak (6,092m/19,987ft) rising above Pisang village of Annapurna Conservation Area is one of the most popular trekking peak in northern Nepal.

pisang-peak-altitude-chart

The climb for Pisang Peak starts from Besishahar. The trail will pass through the dense forest and local villages, towards the majestic peak of Mt. Manasalu and Lamjung Himal. A major intersection of the trail meets at Dharapani after passing through Larkya La Pass (5,140m/16,863ft). The path ascends to Kharka (4380m/14,370ft), Pisang valley, where one sets up a base camp. After climbing to a shoulder on the South-West Ridge, one set up a high camp at 5,400m. Afterwards, the trail follows a demanding walk to the Pisang Peak. You can catch the panorama of Annapurna mountain range from a point during the climb (One may encounter snow at the high camp from the end of November to March). The well-defined ridge leads to the final steep snow slope. The descent is made along the same route.

In addition, one can enjoy paying a visit to popular holy temple in the region, ‘Muktinath’. The trek will conclude at Jomson, with a flight back to Pokhara.

Although, Pisang peak climbing is considered easier compared to other climbs, a reasonably high level of physical fitness and sound health is required.

Lobuche Peak

Lobuche East is one of the trekking peaks opened for climbing in Nepal. It is situated at the above the Lobuche, which is just a day camp before trekking to the classical trail to Gorekshep and Everest Base Camp.

lobuche-alltitude-chart
Among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Lobuche East is one of the most technical peaks climbing, even if it is only at the altitude of 6119m from sea level.Lobuche east climbing required a excellent uses of using expeditions styles of rope (Main and fix rope), climbing involves some step and slippery rocks slabs and snow slopes to reach south west ridge, which is just below the glacier, which is along with the high camp, then the final expeditions climb would be sharp and exposed ridge which leads to the real summit. Depending on the seasons, the summit to the Lobuche east required climbing with angle of 70 to 75 degrees with some belayed snow or ice climbing, thus it is most demanding.


It is true that the previous mountaineering experience is not necessary to climb these trekking peaks however; you must be prepared mentally as well as physically for these adventurous expeditions.

Most of trekking peaks (6500m below peaks) are listed in with Nepal mountaineering association, an official mountaineering association of the Nepal. There are more than 20 peaks below 6500m opened for alpine climbing.
