Covered in mountains and Himalayan peaks such as Everest and Annapurna, Nepal is every trekker and mountain climber’s dream destination. Due to its popularity for such adventure tourism, peak climbing in Nepal generates a huge link of internal activities and creates different level of job opportunities for its locals. Who doesn’t love the breathtaking view of the snow covered mountaintops? Ranging from popular hiking and climbing adventures such as the Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base camp trek, mountain regions also offer remote exploration in Nepal and breathtaking journeys. Kanchenjunga trekking, Mt Makalu Trekking, Dolpa Trekking Manaslu trekking, and Upper Mustang trekking are some of the remote trekking routes taken by some climbers.
Himalayas have always been the focus of outstanding achievements in the world of mountain. Arguably the first choice among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Island Peak has carved a niche of its own. Prepare to enter the heart of the Himalayan Khumbu region where Sherpa traditions have been the way of life. You will be greeted with some of the highest mountains in the world including of course Mt. Everest, not to mention the nearby 8000ers like Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and Makalu. Yala Peak is located the nearest from Kathmandu, and offers one of the easiest climb. It can be accomplished even if you have limited trekking experience, provided you are in a reasonably fit condition. Rising above the village of Pisang, this peak lies on the northern fringes of the Manang valley on the eastern part of the Annapurna range. The trek rises steadily along a relatively well-defined ridge to the summit pyramid. The climb is somewhat technical in nature and some previous mountaineering experience is recommended. The peak offers a gorgeous panoramic view of the entire Annapurna range as well.
