Mountain Expedition in Nepal

The first trekkers were, of course, mountaineers who explored the un-climbed mountains. Mountaineering became a fashionable pursuit, especially tackling the Mt. Everest summit. After that the mountain adventure activities became big business which was sponsored by various organizations. Modern technique, equipment and advertisement have attracted crowds of people to the field of mountain expeditions. As a result, many expedition rules and regulations were made in order to systemize the process. The rules for mountaineering on major peaks include a minimum of 6 months advance application to the Ministry of Tourism, a liaison officer, a royalty of $1000 to $ 50,000 (depending on the elevation of the peak) and endorsement from the government.

There are 87 peaks open for foreign expedition, but Mt. Everest is usually booked many years in advance. Most expeditions are done in groups for the sake of safety, security and because it’s less expensive. The best season for expeditions is from April to June. Some of the most popular expeditions in Nepal are Mt .Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Dhauligiri, Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Chu-Yu, Pumari, Gauri Shanker and Mabublum.


We organize major expeditions in Nepal with all the necessities such as serving staffs, tents, food, accommodation, medicines, doctor, insurance and permits. Climbing guides open the way and fix the rope from base camp to the top, dividing the way by setting down camps 1, 2 and 3, to practice with acclimatization. After a long practice, they check the weather before attempting to summit. Then they’ll try to summit from Base Camp to the top once.
