Six teams seek permit to climb mountains

Kathmandu: At least 16 members of six mountain climbing teams have sought the government permission to climb mountains in Nepal during this winter season. Usually, a very negligible number of climbers attempt the expeditions during the wintertime.

According to the government’s tourism department, the mountain peaks for which the expedition teams have sought permissions are Luja Peak (5726m), Kangri (6506m), Ama Dablam (6814m), and Surma Sarovar (6523m).

Of these expedition teams, two teams have taken permission to climb Mt. Ama Dablam for which 6 males and 2 females are set to climb this mountain. The mountaineering activities have started getting momentum gradually which were stopped after the Covid-19 pandemic.

An estimated amount of Rs 338128 has been collected as revenue from the permits issued to the mountain climbers.
