Mountaineering, trekking, white water rafting, hot air ballooning and gliding are some of the popular recreational activities. Ski resorts can be developed in the Himalayan slopes as numerous appropriate sites exist. There are eight of the world's fourteen highest peaks and more than 1300 peaks above 6000 meters in Nepal. So far, 142 peaks have been opened for climbing.
