Nirekha Peak Climbing – Nirekha Peak (6069 meters) is located in the Mahalangur range and is on the same long extending ridge line of peaks including the famous Lobuche Peak. Although listed in the trekking peaks “A” of the Nepal Mountaineering Association trekking peaks, Nirekha is a far more technical peak compared to the other peaks on the list of Nepal Mountaineering Association.
The mountain is only a day away from the regular trail of the Everest Chola Pass trek. The trek follows the Chola pass trail and separates from the main trail just beneath the Chola Pass (on the Gokyo side). At the bottom of the pass, the trail heads towards the north (right side) leaving the trail to Thagnak. Base Camp can be reached after a good few hours trek in the glacial moraine.
The summit push can be made directly from the base camp but it’s a fairly technical climb on steeps slopes and ridges. Unlike many of the other peaks in the list of Nepal Mountaineering Association, this peak is not suggested for beginner climbers.
Visit Himalaya Trek organizes and makes all the arrangement for climbing the mountain. The trek and expedition crew are highly qualified and trained personnel with a good decade-long experience of climbing and trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal.
