Nepal

In Nepal there are 14 peaks over 8,000 meters in the world, and of the although same of the 10 highest of them eight all, peaks actually straddle borders -Everest is in Nepal. Neapl’s magnificent mountains can be enjoyed in three distinctly different fashions. The earliest way is to simply look at them.


Nepal Introduction

The Himalayan is sanskrit for ‘abode of snows’ and Nepal’s stretch of the Himalayas includes eight peaks over 8,000 meters, including the highest of them all, mighty Mt. Everest. Known to the Nepalese as Sagarmatha the worlds’ highest place was the overpowering attraction, which drew in Nepal’s first modern mountaineers.

Everet
Everest

During the 1950s and 1960s most of the important Nepalese peaks were conquered, but just because it is no longer possible to be the first to set foot on top has certainly not diminished the attraction of Himalayan mountaineering. Climbing these giants in an adventurous sporting activity, whereas 30 years ago it required huge well-sponsored expeditions.

There are 14 peaks over 8,000 meters in the world, and of the although same of the 10 highest of them eight all in Nepal, peaks actually straddle borders -Everest is in Nepal and China for example, Kanchanjunga is highest peak in Nepal and India. The heights of the 14 highest peaks, followed by the in South America, North America, Africa, Russia, Antarctica, Europe, Australia and Britain can be seen in the World Mountain Heights diagram.

Neapl’s magnificent mountains can be enjoyed in three distinctly different fashions. The earliest way is to simply look at them. This can be done by flying at them – either on regular flights or the daily tourist – season mountain flights, Or you can admire them from the various popular mountain view points such as Nagarkot or Dhulikhel near Kathmandu or Sarangkot above Pokhara. Getting to these viewpoints is covered in the appropriate chapters.

If simply looking at the mountain isn’t enough you can get right in amongst them by trekking. Trekking is not mountain – climbing apart from high passes on certain treks and the approach to the Everest Base camp you are unlikely to go above 3500 meters. Trekking, however, does provide breathtaking views. Full details on trekking are given in the Trekking chapter.

Finally, there is real mountain – climbing and while getting to the top of an 8000 meter peak is strictly for the professionals, there are plenty of ‘trekking peaks’ which small-scale amateur expeditions can readily attempt. This is not to say that mountaineering in Nepal can be easy – climbing mountains this high always involves an element of risk – but getting to the top of worthwhile Himalayan peak doesn’t necessary require millionaire status or big commercial backers.

Mountaineering
Mountaineering became a fashionable pursuit in Europe during the second half of the 1800s and, having knocked off the Alpine peaks, the much greater heights of Himalayas were an obvious new challenge.
Trekking
There are many smaller mountains in Nepal called ‘trekking peaks’ (ranging from 5,587 to 6,654 meters) which keen trekkers can climb. Most Everest Base Camp trekkers make the ascent of Kala Patthar for the view of Everest and at 5,545 meters this would be a substantial peak anywhere else in the world.

By Himalayan standards these are minor peaks but some of them provide challenging snow and ice climbing. To climb peak and trekking a permit is required from the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

TREKKING IN NEPAL

Why trekking?
An important part of the trekking experience is seeing how these people live. While trek, you can observe and learn about day by day activities and a life style which you close to the land and very different from the west.

Although life in the foothills of the Himalaya has been impacted by trekkers you can still observe traditional method of farming, cooking, trades, child rearing, construction and religious activities. The trail are generally well maintained and are actively used by the Nepalese for communication, trades and travel .you will share the trail with many pack animals [burros] and hard working porters who carry heavy load of supplies, much of which is consumed by trekkers.

While trekking you will also see the great diversity of Nepal. Villages embrace many ethnic groups and cultures.

Everest Base camp Trekking Nepal


EVEREST BC – Kala Patthar
This area is as busy and commercialized as the Annapurna range. The culture of Sherpa people and their practice of Buddhism are impressive. The Everest Base camp elevation is about (5,034 m.). It is not possible to see the Mt. Everest from the base camp Kala Patthar.
Black rock, with its elevation of (5,545 m.) should be climbed to see the view of Mt. Everest. There will be a possibility of altitude sickness, while heading up to the mountains. If so, the only best and wise way to do is coming down immediately. Another possibility is starting the trek from Jiri, approximately 8 till 9 hours from Kathmandu. This takes seven days extra.
