Rock Climbing Adventure In Nepal

For all those cliffhangers out there, Kathmandu offers a roster of stonewall that make for an experience of a lifetime. Recently, Rock climbing has become a popular sport in Kathmandu, which offers some terrific places for rock climbing. Nagarjun, Balaju, Shivapuri and Budanilkantha are some of the places where you can try this sport.

The growing Himalayas are a temptation for those that want to be tethered to them – or want to free climb the mountains. Whatever your pleasure, these young mountains are sure to offer enough finger-clinging holds to give a lifetime of memories. Most trekking outfitters offer all the gear you’ll need for mountaineering. But for more specific climbing needs, consider coming loaded with your own gear.

Rock Climbing is perhaps one of the least promoted sports in Nepal. However, some rock faces have been developed as training ground for enthusiastic climbers both local and foreign. Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has been providing separate training on rock climbing for the last six years to school children and to college students basically to arouse their interest in this field as well as in mountaineering.
