* Enjoy a challenging sport activity in Nepal.
* Choose the most suitable rock climbing spot for you.
Rock climbing in Nepal is a challenging sport for outdoor lovers. That’s why I invite you to organize a climbing trip to one or several places in my country.
Most of the areas for rock climbing in Nepal are located in the north of Kathmandu and near the city of Pokhara. There are also some great spots in the Everest region, like Nagarjun Balaju, Hattiban, Nagarjun, Chomorong and Khumbu.
In addition to this, you can combine a climbing trip to any of these places with other activities outside the city area in Kathmandu. Hiking, bird watching and nature tours are some of the options.
Therefore, here are some of the places I recommend for rock climbing in Nepal:
Rock climbing in this place is relatively new. Besides, it’s on the way to Pokhara. Not only there is a very good rock wall for climbing, but you can also enjoy the views of Mount Manaslu and Marshyandi River.
This is a spot for professionals. Actually, you can enjoy top grade climbing in eight different routes. Hattiban is 15 km away from Kathmandu valley.
A great spot with fascinating rock climbing. It also has amazing views of the Everest Region.
It has twenty routes and is the best place for beginners. However, it also offers routes for intermediate climbers, as well as professional ones. Furthermore, all routes are well bolted. Nagarjun is 3 km North West of Kathmandu valley.
In all cases, the cost of the trip will depend on the program and the number of days. You should also take into consideration that this trip is available all year round, except during monsoon season (June, July and August).
Please get in touch with me if you want to organize a private rock climbing program in Nepal. We will design a trip together according to your expectations.
Also, you can take a look at this rock climbing program that I lead in Bimal Nagar.

Hi! I'm Tshering, IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guide. 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.
I have been climbing since 1996, starting on the 8000m mountains in the Himalaya. I'm one of the few IFMGA/NNMGA certified mountain guides (Instructor) from south Asia, gaining my qualification from the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association (NZMGA) & Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA).
I have successfully guided on Mt Everest on multiple occasions, and other 8000m peaks such as Mt Cho-oyu (8,201m) (3 times), Sisha Pangma (8,013m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,515m) and many more.
I have have also a strong international climbing experience and extensive knowledge of the logistics, planning and group dynamic that are also very crucial to successfully lead adventures in the Himalaya and around the world. I guided in New Zealand, Norway, France, Scotland, Thailand, Bhutan, Pakistan, India and Tibet. I'm also a rescue expert and a technical trainer for the mountain guides training.
I very much like guiding my clients in remote places, where no tourist goes. I like also discovering new routes and peaks. Please have a look to the different trekking and mountaineering expeditions I propose and contact me if you want to discuss about them. I can of course also guide you in more 'classic' routes, just get in touch with me and let's talk about your wishes!

Tshering was so great and informative. Very nice personal day out. He made sure everything was great and that we enjoyed ourselves! :)
Thanks for the email. After the initial confusion, climbing was great and Sonam was an amazing guide! Both Eveline and myself had a wonderful time and wish we could have kept climbing! Thanks for making our trips to Nepal even more unforgettable!!
