Bokta Peak Climbing

Bokta Peak Climbing

Permits for Bokta Peak Climbing is now issued by the Department of Tourism instead of Nepal Mountaineering Association, according to the recent decision taken by the government.
 
Bokta Peak is a trekking peak situated in the wild region of Mt. Kanchenjunga, third highest peak in the world. Unlike Everest, approach to Kanchenjunga region is through pristine wilderness that are remotely located and visited by few trekkers and climbers.
 
There are three routes to reach the summit of Bokta Peak, eastern, western and northern routes. Among them the most feasible and accessible approach would be through northern flank. As compared to northern route, the eastern and western are bit steep, icy and technically challenging. 
 
Bokta Peak climbing is full of adventure. From the top of the peak you will be able to view the majestic views of Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m), Nepal peak (7157m), Kirat Peak (7362m), Kumbhakarna (7711m) and Dormo Peak (6850m) among others. 
 
The area is home to Kirat (Rai and Limbu) people, the oldest indigenous people of Nepal, who are known for their honesty and straight forwardness. It was Kirats who once ruled Kathmandu Valley long before the Newar came into prominence.
 
Bokta Peak Climbing will offer a unique perspective to know about the history and culture of Kirat people. You will have ample time to interact with local people, visit monasteries and try local cuisines such as the famous liquor called Tongba.
