When Tenzing Norgay Sherpa Nepali and Sir Edmund Hillary from New Zealand successfully ascended Mt. Everest on 29 May 1953, they introduced the pursuit of Peak Climbing to the world. Nepal is the undisputed capital of Peak Climbing because it contains the highest mountain system in the world, which extends about 2400 km. The Himalayas are a chain of young-fold mountains, bordered on the northwest by the Karakoram Hindu Kush ranges, on the north by the Tibetan Plateau, and the south by the Indo-Gangetic Plain. The mountain range encompasses a region that has diverse religions, cultures, and traditions. Nepal has eight peaks above the 8000m, including Everest, which is at 8,848 meters above sea level, and includes neighboring peaks Lhotse 8516m, Nuptse 7855m, and Changtse 7580m.
Peak Climbing is an appropriate activity for adventure seekers seeking to test their limits. There are many peaks below 8000m, including Island Peak, Mera Peak, Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli), Pisang Peak, Labuche Peak, Chulu West, and many others. All expeditions are under the rule and regulation of the tourism ministry of Nepal and the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
