Thirty three peaks in the Nepal Himalaya have been singled out as “Trekking Peaks“ implying that they are suitable for climbing by trekkers (as against mountaineers) with little previous climbing experience. The degree of difficulty and length of the actual “climb” varies: and once the mountain is reached, several days may be needed for technical training, setting up a high camp and the summit attempt. Most of the peaks are over 6 000m calling for thorough acclimatisation before summiting can be considered. Most trekking passes are below 5 400m!
All climbing treks must be led by a qualified NMA Trekking Guide who will provide any necessary climbing equipment required. You will need to have (borrowed from LDT) plastic climbing boots and gaiters, gloves, snow glasses etc. to assist your ascent. Any necessary training for snow, glacier or rock work will be given and practised before the summit is approached.
