About Hattiban Advanced Rock Climbing Adventure

This is a custom trip rock climbing trip that we run upon request, as it is high-level climbing. This is a great next step for those who take the 4-Day Rock Climbing Clinic and want to test out their skills. All equipment and a guide are included!

Hattiban, Nepal is a beautiful village about an hour outside of Kathmandu. Along the way, you see beautiful temples, and get a great view of the Kathmandu Valley. It is about a 20-minute hike through the jungle back to the crag where we climb. This Hattiban rock climb excursion includes 5.9 – 5.12-grade routes and is best for autumn and spring rock climbing. In the summer, this area is very hot as there is little shade at the rock climbing site.
