Nepal is home to eight of the world’s 14 highest peaks over 8000m which makes it the top destination for climbers. The peaks include Mt. Everest (8850m), Kanchanjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Manaslu (8163m) Annapurna (8091m) along with thousands of other peaks that are between 5500m and 8000m.
Peak climbing normally means climbing peaks that are between 5500m and 7000m. Nepal has opened around 1310 peaks that are above 5500m for peak climbing. Some of these smaller peaks or so called ‘trekking peaks’ are governed by Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), who are a private body entrusted to promote mountaineering and protect the environment. Among them 33 peaks have been categorized NMA as ‘A’ and ‘B’ peaks. The climbing permit for these 33 peaks are issued by the NMA and the rest are issued by the government.
