Description 

Nepal is a magic country. The Himalaya are enough to create an indelible impression on anyone, regardless of whether they are a climber or not. The entire country is traversed by some of the highest peaks in the world up to and exceeding 8000m.

The real story in Nepal is the people. Perhaps some of the most treasured moments any traveller to Nepal has is the encounters and friendships shared with these diverse and wonderful people.

(Please contact me if you'd like to write a better description. I am just trying to keep the areas hierarchically organized)

Getting There 

Nepal may be reached by land from India or China and by Plane into Kathmandu typically from Delhi or Bangkok.

From basecamp at ~16,500, the climb begins with a series of switchback traverses past high camp at ~18,000ft on a relatively well packed trail. There is then a short section of 3rd class scrambling up narrow gullies which begins just above high camp, and there were occasional 4th class moves, but was pretty much hiking on stable rock for the majority of the approach. Eventually, well above high camp you reach a very short ridge traverse of a few hundred feet before you hit glacier, snow, and h...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
