The mountainous Nepal, which hosts the majority of the highest mountain peaks worldwide, is the perfect destination for extreme mountain activities. Rock climbing here acquires a different meaning. In a land where the hill's altitude ranges between 3500 m/11482 ft and 1000 m/3280 ft, climbing in the rock of the ''next door'' seems so natural!
