Trekking Peaks in Nepal

Trekking peaks are the smaller peaks in Nepal which were opened for recreational climbing and training. They are called “Trekking Peaks,” because they mostly require trekking with minimal climbing to reach the summit, and are different than premier mountaineering. Small peaks can be climbed with ease and do not require lengthy Expeditions.

Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has classified 33 such peaks as the Trekking Peaks; which are are lesser than 7,000 meters in altitude. Currently there are 326 peaks open for climbing in Nepal.

To encourage climbing, NMA has removed the royalty fee from the peaks which are lesser than 5,800 meters in height.

These peaks are divided into two groups. Most of them open for climbing during Spring (March-June) and Autumn (September-November) seasons.
