Tourism department starts issuing climbing permits for autumn

KATHMANDU: The government has started issuing permits for climbing mountains in the fall season by allowing two teams to scale Mt. Manaslu, the world’s eighth tallest peak at 8,163 meters.

Two groups comprising a combined 25 members received the first permits for the fall season that begins in September, the Department of Tourism said in a press statement.

One group has 15 members, with ten male and five female climbers, while the other has 10 male members, according to the department.

Most mountaineers usually visit Nepal to summit the Himalayan mountains in the spring, but a few of them also try their luck in the fall.
