Peak Climbing and Expedition. Peak climbing expedition is usually both technically and physically very challenging activity. It requires considerable climbing skills and in Nepal usually is done on sub-eight thousand meters high mountains, where acclimatization is easier and more effort can be devoted to climbing skill rather than shier brute force to combat altitude. Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has been given the authority by the Mountaineering Section of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MOCTCA) of issuing peak climbing permits. Our objective is to serve the climbing community with helpful information, advise and practical services. On our website, you will find a wealth of information to help you to understand and decide on your climbing adventure. The biggest and loudest is not always the coolest. We have put lots of work to make our website useful to climbers, adventurers as well as any traveler to decide, what is cool. Now it is up to you and we will be delighted if you find cool climbing adventure just because you have visited our website. Please let us know what you think and how can we improve. These pages were created in collaboration with people who live in the country and people who were exploring it, so there are different angles on different aspects and not just a sterile lonely opinion. Peak climbing requires several considerations before one can embark on actual climbing activity. There are various rules and restrictions imposed by the government regulating peak climbing activities due to economic, safety, environmental and cultural concerns. Mountains are part of the natural resource and most countries, even those wealthy with mineral resources derive fees and income from permits to climb special mountains like Denali in the USA or Aconcagua in Argentina. For Nepalese government fees are an important part of export income.
