Adventure Sports in Nepal

Adventure Sports in Nepal
The one word that solely signifies Nepal is "Adventure". For decades, Nepal has caught the fancy of adventurers. The lofty mountain, the ice-capped pine trees, the gurgling rivers and what not; Nepal has all the recipes of adventure. People from all nook and corners of the world have relished these recipes for decades. Among these recipes, Mount Everest is the most favorite delicacy. Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak in the world, is the proud possession of Nepal. Known locally as Sagarmatha, Mount Everest stands 8,848 meters above the sea level. Mountaineers from all over the world come to Nepal to scale this ultimate challenge. It has been close to 50 years since Mt Everest was first scaled but this peak still attracts the highest number of mountaineers. Apart from the Mount Everest, there are other peaks too that are famous among hikers. Some of these peaks are Nanda Devi, Nanga Parbat and Makalu. There are various agencies that facilitate these expeditions. All of these agencies follow international norms regarding safety and environmental issues.
