The climbing fee for Everest, the world’s tallest mountain, has been set at $11,000 per person in the spring season. The charge for other eight-thousanders has been set at $1,800 per person
No climbing fee will be charged for mountains like Api, Saipal, Ganesh Himal, Gyalzen Peak and others...There are 3,310 walking and climbing peaks above 5,500 metres in Nepal
