Nepal is today best renowned for its mountains, mountaineering, and peak-climbing. Eight of the ten highest mountains in the world, including Mt. Everest, are located in Nepal, the Land of the Himalayas, which has an 800 km-long extended Himalayan region (8,848m). More than 326 summits in Nepal are currently accessible through expeditions, and 33 more minor climbing peaks have been given the designation "Trekking Peaks in Nepal."
The government of Nepal has decided to make some mountain summits royalty-free. Climbers of all levels from around the world are being called by the majestic peaks of Nepal. Visit Nepal and experience the majestic Himalayas for yourself!
You must pay royalty fees for your climb in addition to your travel costs. The popular summits come with steep royalty costs. Additionally, the season of your trip affects these costs. Since spring and autumn are Nepal's busiest seasons for outdoor activities, they are more expensive than winter. However, there are some peaks you can climb without paying a fee. The peaks that are free of royalties are listed here.
