The government requests national and international photographers as well the tourist guides to send the pictures of all the mountain peaks opened for commercial expedition in Nepal for making the detailed profile of these peaks. The task to make detailed profile of 326 mountains peaks opened for commercial expedition is already undertaken with the talks between concerned stakeholders according to officials, at the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA).
Madhu Sudan Burlakoti, joint secretary of MoCTCA, said “Since we lack the detailed information of the peaks opened for mountaineering, decisions have already been made on preparing the profile of all the peaks opened for commercial expedition.
A committee with the representatives from Nepal Tourism Board (NTB), Department of Survey, Trekking Agencies´ Association of Nepal (TAAN), Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA) and Nepal Tourism Ministry has been formed for the project. Honorary member of World Mountaineering and Climbing Federation (UIAA) and a veteran mountain climber, Mr. Ang Tshering Sherpa, is also in the committee.
The detailed profile will focus in including basic information of the mountains like name, location, height, latitude and longitude, climbing routes, and the best time to climb the peak, among others. It will also have peak pictures from different positions. The committee plans to prepare the detailed profile of peaks above 6000 meters in the first phase.
