Sparing out some time from your busy scheduled life, if you have thought to wake up your adventurous spirit and searching for the best peak climbing destinations, then you are at the right place. In this blog, I have tried to throw some light on this topic with thorough research about the best peaks for climbing in Nepal from several sources and have drawn out the conclusion with remarkably the best list. But before that, I found it necessary that you should primarily come across some facts that can help you with appropriate and meaningful peak climbing in Nepal.

There are arguably numerous peaks in Nepal; however Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has enlisted only some of the peaks that are both safe and suitable for climbing; that counts to peaks of total of 33 mountains. To be noted, the maximum climbing period is set less than five days as, say it refreshment or twist in your trekking expedition.

Getting back to the concern, here is an interesting list of the best peaks for climbing in Nepal with their brief details.

Island Peak: Island peak (6189 m), also termed as Imja Tse is one of the most preferred peaks in Nepal situated close east to the Everest Base camp trekking trail. Since the peak is proximate to the world’s tallest peak, Mt. Everest, it is often considered to be the first choice of every climber reaching there. Climbing there is equivalent to getting yourself to an altitude that offers you scenic beauty of other High Himalayas, including Mt. Makalu. The best time for climbing the Island peak is from April to May and from October to November.

Mera Peak: Climbing level reflecting little difficulty, southeast of Island peak, there lies Mera peak (6470 m) which is also one of the famously-known peak to the climbers. It is considered to be the highest of all peaks climbing in Nepal. It is one of the peak points that helps you witness the magnificent views of Mt. Everest and Lhotse in front of your eyes. September and November are termed to be the best time for climbing Mera peak.

Lobuche East Peak: Lobuche east peak (6119 m) got its name as it is situated in the village named Lobuche, very near to the Everest Base camp trekking trail. Since the peak has fairly easy access, it is a perfect peak climbing solution for all, experienced and inexperienced climbers. The lustrous shine through brilliant view of mountains like Everest, Lhotse and Makalu is what the Lobuche east peak best offers. The most favorable time for climbing there is from mid-March to May and October to mid-December.

Yala Peak: Climbing to the summit of Yala peak (5732 m) is said to be the easiest peak climbing mode in Nepal. The peak is located in the Langtang region close to the north of Kathmandu. From there, you can witness Mount Shishapangma, the fourteenth highest mountain in the world located in Tibet autonomous state of China. The best time for climbing Yala peak is from March to May and October to November.

Chulu West Peak: Chulu West peak (6419 m) is another famous peak from the Annapurna region. It lies closely to the north of Annapurna circuit trail. The summit offers magnificent views of Mount Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I. Even more, it is also a great vicinity from where you can witness the Damodar Himalayan range of upper Mustang. The climbing days, unlike in other peaks, are a bit longer for Chulu west peak; that is approximately 5-6 days.

Climbing peaks are comparatively fairly easy than mountaineering, however in the namesake of fairly easy, it shouldn’t resemble to normal hikes. So, it is a must that you select the best one that can ensure utmost adventures to your trekking experience and cherish the moments with newness and uniqueness in every step you make to the summit.
