Nepal Expedition

 

With eight of the highest peaks in the world, Nepal has been the focus of some of the most outstanding achievements in the world of mountaineering. For many decades the dauntless icy peaks have posed as challenge to those who dare.

It was mountaineering that first put Nepal on the tourism map when, in 1953, Mount Everest was successfully climbed for the first time. Nepal is more than just Everest. No fewer than eight of the fourteen 8000 metre peaks lie within her borders along with innumerable lesser peaks between 6000 and 8000 metres high. Many of these peaks are open for mountaineering expeditions to attempt.
