Mountain Expeditions

Nepal Expeditions – Amazing Wonders in the Land of
Wonderland – The Himalayas – Calling the world’s Veteran Mountain Climbers to Conquer Them


Expedition style (or "siege" style) refers to mountaineering which involves setting up a fixed line of stocked camps on the mountain which can be accessed at one's leisure, as opposed to Alpine style where one carries all of one's food, shelter, equipment etc. as one climbs.

Nepal bears 1310 identified Himalayan Peaks over 6000 meters including EIGHT (08) out of FOURTEEN (14) Highest Peaks in the world! And, this has unquestionably
declared our nation – NEPAL – as one of the best and the premier mountaineering and climbing destinations in the entire globe! Every year, significant number of climbers/mountaineers quest in testing their skills and endurance thus fulfilling their desire(s) in summitting these Himalayan Peaks/Mountains. As of today, Nepal Government has opened 326 such of the peaks for climbers across the globe!


The Mountain Climbing, an adventurous sport activity became so popular all across the world after being conquered the tallest Mountain in the entire globe – Mount
Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norge Sherpa on 29th of May 1953. Sir Edmund left the mar, NEPAL BEING – “The world’s greatest paradise and one of
the nicest countries in the world for trekking/mountaineering”.
Conquering Mount Everest really requires a great deal of determination, passion and experiences. May climbers can sharpen their technical skills by climbing other peaks
which are available in Nepal – Mt. Kanchenjunga; Mt. Makalu; Mt. Manaslu; Mt. Lhotse; Mt. Dhaulagiri; Mt. Cho Oyu & Mt. Annapurna I. All these extreme peaks
have been conquered by Heroes/Heroines from varied countries from the world by setting the world record in climbing history. BIG Adventures has always been

Our guides have experiences of climbing 8000 meters peaks including Mount Everest. At every expedition, they set-up routes for our valued climbers and guides as well, who in general don’t have natural predispositions to adopt and work proficiently at very high elevations. In order to participate in Himalayan Mountaineering Expedition, one is required with a great psychological and physical stamina! A level of prior experience is also a good asset and it is indispensable on more difficult and technical climbs! However, we can help you through our support and logistics program to flatten the steep learning curve. 

 

The minimum time required for high altitude Himalayan climb typically ranges from 30 to 60 days. The activity of challenging trekking above the altitude of snowline in the Himalayas is defined as Mountaineering Expedition. This kind of snow mountain trekking emphasizes on teamwork, psychological challenges stemming from isolation, hard work, physical stamina, adverse environment, ability to use climbing equipment in a prominent manner such as ice axes, crampons, ropes etc. and confinement to small group for weeks. To be a participant of an expedition team one must require a technical knowledge and experience to be able to climb in steep snow, technical ice and rock, protect him and his belayed on snow, ice and rock, setup fixed ropes and recognize danger due to hidden crevasses, avalanches, unstable snow, fast changing weather conditions, cold, dehydration and high altitude conditions. 

 

Nepal is considered one of the best adventure destinations in the world. Nepal's geography packs an extremely varied landscape into a small area. The immense contrasts in altitude and climates found here support a spectacular mix of lifestyles, vegetation and wildlife. Nepal is probably the only country in the world where you can climb the highest mountains available in the entire globe! The core of the mountain complex known as the Himalayas ‘abode of snow’ is the youngest and highest mountain system of the world. The name is based on the Sanskrit words, “Him” means snow and “Alaya” means abode. The 800 km stretch of the Nepal Himalayas is the greatest in the world with EIGHT peaks that rises above 8,000 meters, including the highest in the world, "Mt. Everest". Ever since the country opened its peaks to climbers in 1949, the Nepal Himalayas has become a great theater of mountaineering activity and the drama of success and failure have provided impetus to thousands of men and women to meet the ultimate challenge. In Nepal, there has been 423 Himalayan peaks are opened ranging from peaks above 6,000 meters to the Mount Everest 8848 meters for foreigners. Nepal's Himalayas have been an attraction to many climbing devotees, philosophers, adventures or researcher lovers. 

 

All mountaineering expeditions intending to climb an eight-thousand or any other mountain have to obtain permission from the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation. Once a permit has been obtained, the expedition has to strictly follow the route and the regulation as prescribed in the permit issued by the Government of Nepal. A mountaineering expedition team which has obtained a permit for mountaineering shall have to include a Liaison Officer appointed by the Government of Nepal. An Expedition Team has to deposit a garbage fee before obtaining a permit. The amount varies according to mountains that is being conquered ranging from US$ 500 to US$ 4,000 which is refundable after the expedition team shows the clear evidence of the garbage accumulated. 

 

In the expedition phase, we will use smaller, lightweight domed mountain tents. It is possible to be very comfortable in these if you are organized and keep your kit in order. We eat in the mess tent at a plastic table with stools or chairs to sit on. BIG Adventures Team staffs are masters at cooking large volumes of tasty food in even the most basic of environments. 

 

However, we may ask you to help with the processes of preparing and clearing up the meals on the camp. Again, this can be a fantastic opportunity to gain firsthand experience of another essential part of any culture. You will also learn skills and principles that are transferable to cooking any food anywhere anytime. Food safety is always a big concern and we take this very seriously.
