Nepal is one of the prime destinations for mountaineers from all over the world.
Gurkha Encounters provide short mountaineering courses and mountaineering expedition preparation courses in Nepal. As part of our pre-visit preparation we will recommend a list of books that you will find helpful in preparing for your climb or expedition, if you can’t find these in your own country then we can arrange for these mountaineering books to be sent to you.
Mountaineering in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India involves expeditions and climbing high mountains that require the participants to have good knowledge of ice and rock climbing skills. Eight of the ten highest peaks in the world are found in Nepal, including the world’s highest, the majestic Mount Everest. Climbing such peaks is one of the most exhilarating experiences on earth and Nepal is a favorite destination for mountaineers, with over 600 expeditions each year to Everest and to many other surrounding peaks.
