Peak climbing in Nepal

Nepal is a country of the Himalayas with numerous peaks and pinnacles. Towering peaks are the results of tectonic movement, the action of gravity, and erosion. The transition from flat to mountainous terrain is gradual. Mountains, hills, plateaus, basins, valleys, and plains/Terai of various altitudes and magnitude make up the majority of the terrain.

From from the Kali River east to the Tista River, Nepal features several of the world’s highest peaks: Everest (29,035 feet [8,850 metres]), Kanchenjunga (28,169 feet [8,586 metres]), Makalu (27,766 feet [8,463 metres]), Dhaulagiri I (26,795 feet [8,167 metres]), Manaslu I (26,781 feet [8,163 metres]), and Annapurna I (26,545 feet [8,091 metres]).

These permanently snow-covered mountains overlook huge glaciers, often known as nature's water towers because they provide fresh water. About half of the world's population is reliant on mountain resources, particularly water (Sharma, Molden, Rahman, Khatiwada, Zhang, Singh, Yao, & Wester, 2019). Its scenic beauty and adventurous attractions draw tourists and mountaineers from all over the world (Howard, 2016). Peak climbing is mountain-based adventure tourism, according to Pomfret and Hales (quoted by Musa, James, and Anna, 2015). It has a huge following all around the world. Many people visit the high water towers (Himalayan water reservoirs) for cultural reasons. At the summit, mountaineers fervently give prayers and prayer flags. Mountains are regarded as sacred areas of the divine presence in Buddhism and Hinduism.
