Kathmandu is commonly seen as the gateway to the enormous Himalayan peaks. And while those giant peaks, from Mount Everest (8,848m) to Cho Oyu (8,201m) cannot be ignored, not everybody has the time time, skill and resources to climb them. But there are other climbing opportunities near Kathmandu as well.

It is my pleasure to offer rock climbing programs that are full of variety, from the climbing level they cover and the amount of days, to the locations where they can be enjoyed. However, regardless of where, what they cover, or how long the programs are, I know you will have a great time, while learning a great deal.

The two spots where I think the best rock climbing near Kathmandu are in the valleys of Balaju and Hattiban. These two areas offer beautiful scenery. They also give visitors a chance to enjoy local Nepalese culture without the noise and busyness of Kathmandu.

Some of the options for the rock climbing programs I offer include a 3 day mini rock climbing course and a 5 day basic rock climbing course. For people with more experience, I also offer a 7 day advanced rock climbing course. Finally, for those with desires to be a guide, I offer a 15 day rock climbing guide course as well.

The valleys near Kathmandu might not be as famous as the great peaks Nepal is known for. However, they are still wonderful places to visit. And with the programs I offer, you will have the chance to explore them, while learning new rock climbing skills, or perfecting the ones you already have. Please message me if any of these programs interest you.

And if you have more time in Nepal, I also offer a 13 day trek through the beautiful Langtang Valley.

About the guide

I come from the East part of Nepal, between Makalu (8,470m) and Kangchenjunga (8,586m). I am IFMGA/UIAGM fully certified since 2009.

I have 20+ experience of climbing in the Himalaya. I’ve climbed Mt Everest (7 times), Mt Cho Oyu in Tibet (2 times), Mt Ama Dablam (8 times), Baruntse (2 times), Island peak (15 times), Lobuche (10 times), Pokhalde (10 times), Mera peak (10 times), Mehera peak (5 times), Chulu far east (3 times), Mt Shishapangma until camp 3, Manaslu until 7200m, and Chulu West, Lhakpa ri and other another few more times.

I also have extensive experience of climbing in Europe: France, Italy, UK and Norway (where I work for three months during the summer as a glacier guide).
I'm also a technical mountain rescue coordinator for the 8000's.

It will be my pleasure to guide you through your journey whether for trekking, peak climbing or any mountaineering expedition. Get in touch and let's discuss about the purpose of your trip.

I work together with a team of certified and professional mountain and trekking guides. If I'm not available to guide you, one of my colleagues will take great care of you.
