Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure
Climb Nirekha Peak via Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lake

Nirekha Peak is one of Nepal's fresh peak for experienced alpine climbers. Fewer climbers and journey on snow and ice will offer unforgettable Himalayan experienced for adventure lovers. The peak is located in Khumbu region, deep in the Himalayas, close to the Tibetan border to Cho La crossing between Gokyo and Lobuche.

Nirekha summit consists of two distinct summit of near equal height but higher is not clear and South summit is easier to reach. the south summit requires one pitch in steep 50° ice. The steepness of the climb mostly on ice and snow ascent demands the technical ice-axe, crampons, some rope sections and acclimatization as most of the difficult climbing is above 5800m. North summit is easy but it consist of difficult crevasse to be pass.

Nirekha can be climb from two different route where one route lead from the valley above Dragnag on the route to the Cho la pass and another easier and safer route is to start from the Kanchung Base Camp(5,250m) near the Gaunara Glacier, around nice hours could reach on peak. The climb is technical but the top is the best view point to view the Himalayas. High mountain like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Cho yu and other surrounding Himalayan range can be seen from the Nirekha peak. Along the trip we also include one of Nepal's most popular Everest Base Camp trek and then incredible Gokyo lake Trek.
