Top 7 Trekking Peaks in Nepal

Nepal is the homeland of around 866 named mountains, among which Mt. Everest is the highest one in the world.

Nepal is known for its Himalayas worldwide. Due to the Himalayas of Nepal, every year many climbers come to Nepal to practice on easier peaks, commonly known as trekking peaks, before scaling higher mountains. Such peaks have an elevation limit of 6600m, and require less than 5 climbing days and don’t need special equipment and long training.

Trekking peaks give climbers a good opportunity to gain alpine experience of the Himalayan mountains. Beginner with no prior climbing experience can also climb easy trekking peaks, while experienced can attempt difficult peaks. Though, trekking peaks are non or less technical, climbers still need to be physically fit and be in good shape with previous experience in altitudes.

In Nepal there are 33 peaks ranging from 5800m to 6600m, which is classified as “Trekking Peak of Nepal” by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Mountains above this range are called as expedition peaks. The best seasons for peak climbing in Nepal are Spring and Autumn. Spring season is liked by most climbers as the days are warmer with less chance of snowfall compared to autumn. During Spring, the trail also gets covered with blooming rhododendrons offering the best kaleidoscopic beauty of Nepal.
