Rock Climbing In Nepal
Rock Climbing is a recent addition to Nepal’s adventure activity list, which has put us on the world rock climbing list of places to visit. Though it’s a new development in the tourist industry, actually it is not new to Nepal; the sport has been around since the time of the first mountaineers’ way back in the early 1950s. NMA Secretary, Mr. Ang Karma Sherpa explain that “Rock Climbing in Nepal is not new, but what is new in our context is evolution as a separate sport.” Being the latest adventure, for the promotion of rock climbing the NMA has worked out a long term plan for it. The aim of NMA is to popularize the spot among Nepalese youth and prepare a crew of international standard to take part in Olympiad and other international events to promote Nepal as a rock climber’s destination.
Rock climbing spots are situated to the north and northwest of the valley. Kathmandu has a roster of stone walls which creates a chance for you to practice and hone your skills before taking on the real thing. Nagarjun, Balaju, Shivapuri and Budhanilakantha are the best places around Kathmandu where you can climb the rock faces. Climbing trips can be incorporated with bird watching, game watching and experiencing some of the last of the valley’s wild places. Nagarjun and Shivapuri hills have some excellent cliffs for you to climb. Both places are just a stone’s throw away from the city.
