ABOUT THIS ADVENTURE
Besides mountain climbing and expedition, Nepal is also emerging as a popular destination for rock climbing. Rock climbing is an adventure sport where the climbers have to mount up, down and over the natural rock composition or man-made rock walls using the rope through the allocated route without falling to the end.
Rock climbing is not as easy as it seems like. It demands the climber’s strength, balance, and endurance capacity. It is both physically and mentally challenging sport which tests the audacity of the climbers. One should acquire the proper climbing techniques and usage of climbing equipment for safe completion of routes.
Hattiban climbing offers an advanced level climb. The area is located 26km south-west of Kathmandu valley on the way to Dakshinkali temple, where we enjoy top-level grade climbing. Along the way, pass by Samye Monastery, and get a great view of the Kathmandu Valley. The climbing grades start from 5a to 6b.
This place is very good in winter because it is south face and sunlight all day. We start hiking with a beautiful village under the lush pine forest and monasteries. Crossing village with short uphill walking around 30min gaining an elevation of around 2000ft we reach the spot named big crag.
A short private 1hr drive through the city and beautiful village brings us to Hattiban. Hattiban is a beautiful destination offering a great view of Kathmandu city. Then a short uphill walk around 25min through the jungle to the climbing ground named big crag. Cliff has 10 intermediate to advanced single-pitch climbing routes, all bolted for sport climbing with bolted anchors at the top of each route. The cliff is vertical, with slight overhangs. Hattiban Rock climbing is suitable for all sorts of climbers from beginners to experts.
Nagarjun Rock Climbing is one of the popular and closet Climbing Site of Kathmandu valley. It is located 3km in the northwest of Kathmandu valley in Nagarjun Forest Reserve.
Nagarjuna, a verdant hill, is full of forests, and the hill gets its name from great Buddhist philosopher – Nagarjuna, who meditated for several years on the top of the hill. The climbing area is formed of limestone rock and sometimes referred to as – piton scarred, or ‘a defaced face’ by the purists.
To reach the hill, you need to follow the dirt road and the wooded trail from the valley. The climbing site is near-sacred Buddhist site Langlungten, Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche), which receives a lot of visitors besides those who come for climbing purposes. The pilgrims and hikers fill the region along with climbers.
The exciting climbing will take you through 21 routes, 55m high on a dizzying cliff of limestone. For rock climbing in this area one does not have to be an expert climber but is suitable for all kinds of climbers, including beginners. With the pristine views of mountain ranges like Annapurna, Langtang, Machhapuchre, Manaslu, and Ganesh Himal, the location is one of the perfect ones from the valley to witness the Himalayas.
