The best part is the range of heights Himalayas offer to climbers. For fun climbing your only option stands at 4000m at the Mongolia and China. For serious climbers, the options start at 6000m at Three Peaks Nepal and then the options include; Island Peak (6189m), Cholatse (6,440m), Mera Peak (6,476m), Ama Dablam SW Ridge (6,828m) in the six to seven thousand range.

The best of the adventures, however, come at a price and a breathtaking yet extreme height where the conditions are really unpredictable and safety comes far before everything, yes we are talking about the 8000m ranges. These climbing routes include; Shishapangma (8013m), Gasherbrum 2 (8035m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m) and last but not the least our deadliest favorite Everest standing high at 8850m.

Everest, out of all of them, is the most visited yet the harshest where men come face to face against nature. It truly puts your mind and skills to the test you can never forget. From the pressure to the ever changing weather and from the cultural aspects of Nepali people that would make your experience even dense. Thousands have put their lives at risk to climb the majestic peak of Everest and hundreds have lost their lives trying to conquer this peak.

The very nature of adventure is intrinsic and if you don’t have it in you, you better not dare set foot on the killer mountain for a climbing expedition. You can enjoy the scenic views around it or try some recreational activities but if you dare it, the experience would put you through a transformation that many people talk about, but only a few truly understand.
