Ice Climbing

Subash Shrestha May 22, 2020

One of the sensational experiences that we can gain while visiting Nepal is if we go for ice climbing. Ice Climbing in Nepal differs from the climbing that of Alps, Patagonia because of the temperature and weather condition of Himalaya.

With the frozen waterfalls and frozen ice up in the hill, climbing is full of adventure packages. It is an extreme experience as it is risky yet adds thrill.
