Nepal offers over 1500 peaks which are above the height of 5000 meters in altitude. Definitely not for the faint of heart, but a great compromise for those who are short on time or simply wish to get a taste of what the big mountains have in store.
Where applicable, definitions for these rules will be the same as those for the Government of Nepal Mountaineering Expedition Regulations, 1979 and its First Amendment, 1984.
