Nepal is famous for trekking and climbing and is a dream destination for adventure seekers. With Everest, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and several more of the highest peaks in the world within its borders, this is no surprise. There are many wonderful snow-capped mountains for climbing in Nepal. Besides the 10 mountains over 8000 metres in Nepal, there are other peak-climbing mountains between 6000 – 7000 metres in Nepal. For example, we take the names Mera Peak, Island Peak, Pisang Peak, and Paldor Peak. These are the perfect peaks for climbing where you do not need to be an expert climber. Around 236 peaks are available for expeditions or climbing, and 18 lower peaks are suitable for trekking.
