Nepal Footprint Holiday operates peak climbing adventures in Nepal to some of the most beautiful Trekking peaks, which take just few days to climb (max- 5 days). Every peak climbing adventure in Nepal is technically safe guided by veteran Sherpa Climbers.Peak Climbing in Nepal is considered as the sport, profession, or recreational activity of Climbing or going up the mountains. It is a more challenging than a simple hiking; where one have to trek on higher altitudes. Although the toughest, this outdoor activity is also the most fulfilling.Peak climbing in Nepal is all about challenge and determination, about putting hands and feet onto rocks and ice and snow and finally reaching a summit. There, high above the world of cities and civilization, the climber can pause and look across a natural world ruled by nature and her precise beauty.Peak climbing in Nepal Himalayas is a dream for many climbers. With world's most of high mountains and more than 1300 snow capped peaks, Nepal is justifiably the most popular destination for mountaineering expeditions.After the first ascent on Everest in 1953, people knew more about amazing climbing opportunities in Nepal. The peaks we are talking about are not Everest , Cho Oyu or the Manaslu, but peaks with lower height and easier climbing.Often these peaks are referred as "trekking peaks of Nepal" by some western writers as most of them can be combined to your trek to Everest , Annapurna or Langtang region. However "trekking peaks of Nepal" is a misguiding and romantic phrase. Almost all these peaks are higher than the highest mountains in Europe, US or Africa. Some of them do require technical climbing skill and only a professional climbers should attempt. However some others can be climbed by first timers with good fitness and basic climbing skills. - 60885068Danphe(EBC)(Three passes of Everest region)GOKYO(Gokyo Lakes trial)(ABC)(Annapurna circuit)(Manaslu Circuit)(Poon Hill)(Langtang region) Kanchenjunga circuit trek Dhaulagiri trek 12Upper Mustang Lower MustangIcicles Adventure Female Trekking Guide in Nepal is about empowering ladies making them trust in their capacities, a venture to make them chivalrous and tender brand envoys of this rough daring experience. Female Trekking guide in Nepal is a liberal step towards building an independent society particularly for the ladies living in the remote mountain territories dominant part of who are inwardly, physically and monetarily insecure and facing hardships obliged to live denied life cycle. Initially, ladies in Nepal were hesitant to take up this method for work, however with satisfactory direction and inspiration they have now begun to acknowledge this occupation professionally. Nonetheless, man dominated society of Nepal has been finding it difficult to acknowledge the females of the general public in this daring employment yet a few females trekking guides have possessed the capacity to break this pattern and have gradually taken to terms and relentlessly kept pace with the trekking calling and affirmed themselves to be superior to male trekking guides.Among a modest bunch of trekking associations that advance female trekking guide culture in Nepal, Icicles Adventure Trek & Tours is one of them. Icicles Adventure is certainly one of the best female situated trekking associations leading trekking enterprises with total accuracy and significance. We give best proficient female trekking guides in Nepal. In spite of the fact that our female trekking guides in Nepal are favored for the most part by female trekkers, nowadays because of their delicate nature, great administration, sincerity towards employment and polished skill, male trekkers are likewise inclined to lean toward female trekking guides instead of the customary standard of opting male trekking guides. Given that for female trekkers trekking with a female trekking guide has various favorable circumstances and concealed highlights joined to it. A female trekking guide in Nepal is ideally equipped particularly for the female guests, in the event that they make a trek to this some piece of the world alone or with a gathering can exploit this opportunity with a minimum object. Every single trekking trip may give various types of afflictions and physical issues for which approaching a male trekking guide may be cumbersome, however in the event that the same happens while on trekking with a female trekking guide it can be effectively sent crosswise over and an answer can be determined there direct. Female trekking guides are more specific and methodical in their methodology and they regard the visitors or guests as one of them. Female Trekking adventure is not just about providing customized bolster and administrations on trekking voyages or just responsibility and confirmation of best esteemed administrations, yet an unceasing guarantee of cleverness, fellowship and making it a point of happiness and maybe even changes the viewpoint of your life.
