List Description

The name "Trekking Peaks" is very misleading, since these are all serious mountaineering objectives. However, the name has long historic usage and I think we are stuck with it.

The summits on this list are special because the Nepalese bureauracy has made their climbing permits relatively simple and inexpensive to get. Most can be climbed in one or two days from a high trekking-accessible base camp, and they provide an way for adventurers who want more than a simple hike to try out a little bit of real Himalayan climbing.

These peaks have elevations in the range of 5800 to 6600 meters. The rules can change frequently, but at present no permits are needed for peaks under 5800 meters, including some summits that were formerly "trekking peaks". All other peaks in Nepal, especially those over 7000 meters, require much more expensive and hard-to-get permits and the accompanying bureaucratic wrangling.

Difficulty-wise, the French Alpine grade on these peaks is usually in the PD range, but some are considerably easier than others. The elevation of these peaks also demands a good acclimitization regime. Many outfitters in Nepal offer guided trips to the "trekking peaks", oftern part of the popular treks to Annapurna, Langtang, and Everest regions.
