Adventure Overview

Day 1 : On the first day of the climbing trip, our private vehicle will pick you up from your hotel at 9 am. We will then drive to Nagarjuna National Park, where your permits will be checked for the rock climbing spot. After a 15-20 minute hike from the park entrance, our trainer will introduce you to rock climbing and provide a brief overview of the adventure. You will learn about the different climbing routes available, ranging from beginner to advanced levels. The trainer will familiarize you with the necessary climbing gear, such as harnesses, climbing shoes, and ropes. They will also teach you important knots and demonstrate proper belaying techniques for a safe climbing experience. You will have the opportunity to practice climbing on easier routes before concluding the day's activities. We will then return to your hotel by approximately 4 pm.

Day 2 : On this day, we will drive from Thamel to Shivapuri National Park, continuing our climbing adventure. The focus of the day will be on learning to create and clean anchors, which are essential systems used by climbers to secure themselves and the ropes to the climbing surface or rock. Anchors play a crucial role in fall protection and ensuring climbers' safety. You will receive comprehensive training on constructing anchors and the proper techniques for cleaning them. Additionally, you will learn the skill of abseiling, descending safely down the rock face using ropes and a belay device. After a day filled with valuable learning experiences, we will return to your hotel for a well-deserved rest.

Day 3 : On this day, we will follow the same schedule with an early arrival and drive to the rock climbing spot. The day will begin with climbing some easy routes to warm up and build confidence. Then, our experienced trainers will introduce you to multi-pitched routes, where you will learn the technique of top belay, allowing you to belay from the top during multi-pitch climbs. During the training, you will explore both top rope climbing and lead climbing. Top rope climbing is a beginner-friendly approach, while lead climbing involves the first climber setting up the anchor for top rope climbing. This day will provide you with valuable hands-on experience in lead climbing, an essential skill for any climbing adventure. After practicing and honing your skills until 4 pm, you will be transferred back to your hotel for some well-deserved relaxation.

Day 4 : The itinerary remains the same with the same pickup time, venue, and drop-off at the entrance of the National park. On this day, you will have a comprehensive practice session to reinforce the skills and techniques you have learned in previous days. Following that, you will engage in a lead climbing session to further enhance your climbing abilities. Our expert trainers will then instruct you on essential rescue systems, including important knots and techniques, which are crucial in case of unexpected situations during climbing trips. After a fulfilling day of training, you will return to your accommodation.

Day 5 : On the final day of the training program, we will conduct a comprehensive test to assess your learning and skills. The test will cover various aspects, including knot tying, knowledge of climbing gears, anchor setup and cleaning, lead climbing techniques, and rescue systems. You will have the opportunity to showcase your proficiency in all the areas you have learned throughout the training. Upon successfully demonstrating your acquired knowledge and skills, we will present you with a certificate of completion for the basic climbing training, acknowledging your successful journey in the program.
