Rock Climbing in Nepal

Nepal offers some really terrific places for people who like crawling up vertical cliffs with the help of their gingernails. If you don't have time to take on some Himalayan Peak during this visit, the valley perimeter offers a number of stone walls guaranteed to keep you on your toes. So, instead of hanging around gathering moss, why not try your hand at rock climbing and get a grip on things?


Nagarjun also known as the Jamacho is the forested hill which lies to the northwest of the Swayambhunnath Stupa. The climbing cliff here is located inside the Royal Forest and is suitable for both beginners and regulars. The limestone face is about 12 meters high, and there are several piton-equipped routes. To get there, take a taxi to Balaju (3 km from downtown Kathmandu) and then walk to the park entrance. From the gate, follow the dirt road to a point just before the army checkpost where you will come across a track leading to the right. Follow this trail through trees and shrubs for about five minutes, and there's the cliff


Another interesting rock wall is situated on the slope of Shivapuri hill to the north of Kathmandu .The granite faces here lie scattered about, and the big cliff in the center is equipped with a single route .To get there, go by taxi or bus to Budhailkantha (9km),the shrine of the sleeping Bishnu, then walk west from the bus stop the Bishnumati stream through terraced fields and enters the Shivapuri Watershed and Wildlife reserve. The cliffs can be seen from a distance, so you won't have much difficulty finding the place.
