Rock Climbing in Nepal has been a trip extension program for trekking or mountaineering travelers. But there are many people who come Nepal for comfortable sightseeing tours and sign-ups for an adventure of rock climbing before they get back to home.
When you are in the famous cities like in Kathmandu or in Pokhara there are multiple indoor rocks climbing destinations. You will surely see those places busy in the peak season of tour in Nepal. But there are very few natural rock climbing site around the capital city Kathmandu and adventure city Pokhara. But whatsoever, there are few and to find those natural rock climbing sites you have to connect yourself with trekking companies in Nepal or any of the local travel agencies in Nepal.
As Nepal is famous for the towering peaks like tallest Mount Everest herself, climbing destinations are not scares at all. But the interest of rock climbing in Nepal has been replaced by mountaineering. People rather climb the beautiful peaks in Nepal than climbing rocks.
Interestingly there is few rock climbing sites in Everest base camp trekking route itself. At Lukla and at Khumjung there is rock climbing center where you can pay to climb in the fixed rock climbing site. Apart from those commercial sites- the nature has given beautiful climbing sites; if you are freelancer of rock climbing and can conquer the rock with your best technical; then there are surely plenty of site in every step of Nepal Himalaya.
Rock climbing in Nepal comes along with the peak climbing in many of the peaks like Lobuche peak climbing on route to Everest base camp trekking trail, Yala peak climbing in Langtang or Khumbila peak of Everest.
Climbing has always been a broad side of Nepal travels but rock climbing is least explored in Nepal. Or say, rock climbing is shadowed by towering and beautiful peaks of young Himalayas in northern Nepal. But whatever – mad Himalayan honey hunters has made their normal life as a part of adventure rock climbing, which proves there are enough of those rock climbing sites if you would love to do so.
