3 Sisters Adventure Trekking tariff MORE INFO >>>

Description 

14+ routes, all bolted and numbered on chossy pocketed conglomerate. Very closely bolted, with many climbs sharing same anchors. Most anchors are rings/quicklinks. Climbs range from 4b to 7c on the French system, though these ratings feel rather soft. Gets a bit of traffic via the 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking training/guide programs. Cheap lodging and good food nearby.

Getting There 

If you find yourself in Pokhara, Nepal, find your way to the "Lakeside-6" area, and continue along the shore past the main strip, until you come to Chhetri Sisters Hotel, and/or 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking. The approach to the crag can be found by turning right at the 2nd alley past Chhetri Sisters Hotel. Continue up the alley toward the dark, leftmost, prominent rock outcropping, and explore the small paths up the hill until you get there. It should be about a 20-30 minute uphill walk from the road.

The place is a over grown with grass and it was difficult to find. The routs need to be cleaned because there is a lot of moss on the rocks. But my group had a lot of fun on the 3 routes we climbed. It cost NPR 500 ($5) to climb if you have your own rope and gear. You can pay at the 3 sisters / EWN office on the main road near the lakeside. I recommend you bring a lot of water because there is no place to get clean drinking water near by.
