There are 414 peaks open for climbing in Nepal, among 414 peaks there are 72 (7000m.- 2,965ft) Nepalese peaks open for Mountain climbing. The 7000 meter peaks of Nepal can include some of the most daunting climbing objectives that the Himalayan kingdom has to offer. There is certainly a range of difficulty from easy to challenging to keep both the novice and expert climbers busy.
The upper 6000 meter peaks and the 7000 meter peaks also begin to form an apparent distinction and that we can really distinguish between the tactics used on mountaineering peaks and technical alpine peaks. Mountaineering tends to involve more trekking on lower angle to moderately steep terrain whereas technical alpine objectives climb very steep terrain and require the use rope systems to arrest the climber in the event of a fall. Climbers will usually take the siege approach for mountaineering and higher elevation objectives. On technical alpine ascent climbers will usually go in an alpine style fixing minimal camps and in some cases no camps at all. A 7000 meter expeditions is a necessary and appropriate prerequisite to an 8000 meter expedition.
