Nepal Himalaya is in the centre of the Himalayan range. With eight of the highest peaks in the world including the world\\\'s highest peak Mt Everest, Nepal has been the focus of some of the most outstanding achievements in the world of mountaineering.  It has a convergence of 1310 magnificent peaks over 6,000 meters. Nepal has become famous through out the world due to these mountains.

Mountaineering is another part of adventure tourism in Nepal. Practically, mountaineering can only be undertaken by experienced mountaineers or professional alpinists. It requires the true professional skills, grit and endurance of the trained mountaineer and is relatively risky. The Himalaya in Nepal, extending over eight hundred kilometers from east to west, accounts for one-third of the total Himalayan belt spread horizontally over the northern extreme of Southeast Asia. Several attempts to climb the world’s highest mountain, Everest, were made in the 1920s and 30s from the Tibetan side of the Himalaya. When Nepal was there opened up to the foreigners, a vast array of new challenges presented themselves to adventurous climbers. Over the following 30 years, however, what began as near free access to the mountains, including Everest and the sacred Machhapuchhare, gradually became restricted to a few named expedition peaks. With eight of the highest peaks in the world, Nepal has been the focus of some of the most outstanding achievements in the world of mountaineering. For many decades the dauntless icy peaks have posed as challenge to those who dare. There are some 326 peaks in Nepal open for mountaineering today. Government of Nepal opened around 175 peaks in the last two years to mark the Mount Everest Golden Jubilee Celebrations.

Mountaineering denotes high altitude climb whereas climbing attributes to the hiking to relatively smaller Peaks in the context of the Himalayas. Thus there is a clear definition relating to the mountaineering and climbing and Climbing means in the true sense of the terms attempting to reach one of the summit of the snowcapped mountains that are under the Nepal Mountaineering Association and a climb to such a Peak is relatively very much affordable but gives the experience of being at the summit of one of the Peaks one of the snowcapped mountains of the Himalayas. Being on top of one of the Peaks of the Himalayas is a kind of dream fulfilled.

Referring to the growth of adventure tourism in Nepal, Sir Edmund Hillary mountaineering hero and pioneer Everest conqueror, said that with mighty mountains, great rivers, ancient culture and friendly people, \\\"Nepal is one of the world\\\'s fastest growing adventure tourism areas.\\\" Mountaineering and trekking are of considerable importance for Nepal, because normally mountaineers and trekkers stay here fro a longer period of time than other sight-seers. Nepal grew into a nucleus for mountain climbing expeditions since 1949.
