NIREKHA PEAK CLIMB


Trip Details:

        Nirekha peak climbing is a great summit in the border Himalayan range based on Khumbu region. This peak relatively located on the chain of Lobuche peak and just east of Cho-la Col which is just few distance above the Cho-la pass. This peak is newly opened Himalayan peak of Nepal and listed on categories of grade 'A' among the trekking peaks in Nepal by Nepal mountaineering Association. Only experienced climbers should attempt the summit of Nirekha which requires some technical skills of mountain climbing. Nirekha peak has two routes to climb as one from Kanchung base camp and another from Lake base camp. The ascent from the Kanchung side is to be preferred on this itinerary since it is easier and shorter. The glacier to the Cho La Col on the Kanchung side is easy with only a few mostly harmless crevasses.

The ascent is mostly in ice and snow, and is comparable to big alpine routes such as the Monch or Bernina. Despite of the relatively small height difference, it demands an excellent condition and acclimatization. This is quite technical but from the top it is one of the best scenery of the Himalayan world. From the top you’ll have an opportunity to see the best view of many high mountains as Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Cho Oyu and other surrounding Himalayan ranges. Nirekha Peak (6159m) is in the Mahalangur Region, deep in the Himalayas, close to the Tibetan border and hidden among the well-known giants of Everest, Cho Oyu, and Cholatse. Only recently has it been opened up to Western climbers. The climb itself is relatively straightforward, though it does require ice-axe, crampons and some fixed rope sections. It is a very do-able climb for anyone in good shape and with a desire for high adventure.
