Nepal is the destination place for an expedition. our goal is to get as many members to the summit as possible & even more importantly return safely home. However, because of the nature of Everest Expedition, the highest and one of the more difficult mountains in the world, we cannot guarantee everything. We strive to conduct a safe, successful and enjoyable experience, and will do everything possible to achieve each of these goals.
Mountaineering is another prime attraction of Nepal .The Mountains of Nepal have stood as irresistible landmarks for the world’s adventurers since Nepal opened its doors to visitors in the 1950s.

Mountaineering teams can apply permit at mountaineering section of the Ministry of culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation.
