The price of a climbing permit in Nepal depends on the climbed peak. One of the main activities distinguishing Nepal as the extreme in high elevation mountain climbing without a  substitute is extreme adventure climbing. Nepal has about 1300 snow-capped summits,  with 8 out of 14 at the highest elevation above 8000 meters, attracting climbing enthusiasts worldwide. 

You need a peak climbing permit to climb a mountain in Nepal. The Nepal  Mountaineering Association regulates 27 climbing peaks (NMA). When the new rule was enforced, NMA was in charge of 33 Peak Permits. Thus, "Trekking Peaks" is the name given to NMA-regulated peaks. 

These peaks are technically quite rugged, despite the title's suggestion that they are easier to climb than adventure summits. Trekking Peaks offers the opportunity to rise in some of Nepal's most secluded and unexplored regions. 

These summits can be technical and challenging to climb. Therefore, the NMA peak permit charge varies depending on the season and the number of climbers in a party. 

Nepal is a Himalayan nation where you can realize your desire to climb Mountain Peaks gorgeously and daringly. The Himalayan mountain range has a large number of climbable peaks. 

The Nepal Mountaineering Association issues licenses for climbing mountains in Nepal. Island  Peak, Mera, Lobuche, and Chulu East are the most famous peaks to climb in Nepal.
