Vertical Nepal Launches! 2015/2016

OVERVIEW Nepal has long been a land of mystery to the West. Virtually inaccessible to foreigners for many years, this small, landlocked country now is a playground for climbers and trekkers of many nations. The Himalayas dominate the landscape of most of the nation, living up to its Sanskrit meaning "abode of the snow.” The Himalayan mountain range includes 9 of the 10 tallest mountains on earth. Mt. Everest is the most well-known goal, and thousands have reached its summit – including 169 climbers on the same day. The Government of Nepal has recently opened several new areas containing numerous 6,000 to 7,000 meter unclimbed peaks, which will be the focus of this expedition. PROJECT LAUNCH
