• Production of skilled Human Capital: Climbing is naturally risky activity, which needs well trained,skilled support staffs. Climbers themselves need different levels of training. More trained climbers and support staffs mean better safety and encouragement in climbing sports. For this reason NMA organization has been conducting different level of climbing courses. Sports climbing Training school Kakani and Mountain Climbing Training School in Manang are two schools developed for this purpose. Training activities will be more institutionalized in the future. 

  • Climbing sports training: NMA organizes the following types of Climbing Training: 1. Basic Mountain Guide Course, 2. Course-I, 3. Course-II, 4. Course-III, 5. Mountain Leader Course, 6. Mountain Climbing Instructor's Course  

  • Cleaning & Garbage management: With the increasing numbers of visitors/climbers in Nepalse mountains,the environment is polluted day-by-day. Trails and base camp sites need much more attention for cleaning and garbage management. NMA has been consistently engaged for such cleaning and environmental activities. 

  • Developing peak profile: There are still hundreds of mountain peaks above 5,000 m. high in Nepal which are not explored and not named yet. This is very challenging job, yet very important for Nepalese mountain tourism industry. More products identified, more sales followed by more income. Definetly we need to utilize more and more products. For that purpose, NMA is in the process of developing peak profiles in coordination with the government of Nepal, Ministry of Tourism Culture and Civil Aviation. 

  • Building porter shelters: Fulfilling basic rights of the employees is necessary for true developmetn of sustainable tourism. The porters and support staffs during climbing activities need shelter for rest and spend safe night. For this reason NMA has been engaging in building porter shleters in high passes. 

  • Rope fixing & safety enhancement: Some sections of the trails during climbing are very steep, Rocky and very risky to cross. In such sections NMA manages rope fixing and safety enhancement activities to minimize risks and support the climbers. 

  • New trail building: Where necessary, NMA builds new trails that provide an easy access to the proposed mountain peaks. 

  • Policy building: Based on practical experiences, NMA provides suggestions to the government to form tourism friendly policies. Disaster preparedness, environment protection, safety enhancement, climate change adaption, ethical tourism, and, in over all, developing sustainable tourism policy are the concerns of NMA. 

  • Humanitarian support: NMA is a responsible organization. NMA supports orphans of the victims of mountain disaster, particularly the children of these guides, porters and Nepalse climbers who die during climbing activities. Also NMA supports the people /communiites which are victims of any natural disaster. Currently NMA has been providing scholorship to 50 students from primary to university level. Almost all of these students are children of the victims of mountain disasters at different times like Annapurna Hud-Hud in 2014 and Everest Avalanches in 2015. NMA also supported in rescue and rehab, emergency support to the victims of the mega earthquake 2015.

  • Infrastructure Development Support: Construction of Climbers memorial park in Kakani, Construction and Development of Climbing Sports Training School in Kakani and Manang, Construction and development International Mountain Museum in Pokhara, Construction of Porter shelters and toilets in high passes along the climbing routes, construction of new access trails to the newly explored peaks, Construction of central Secretariat building are some infrastructure development works by NMA. Being a responsible organization of the country, NMA has been planning many more mega projects to support mountain tourism in Nepal.

Including regular domestic events like World Tourism Day, International Everest Day, World Environment Day, Manaslu Day, Annapurna Day, NMA Day; NMA actively participates in International forums like UAAA, UIAA, iFSC and so on. Promoting Nepalese mountain tourism in international market is prime responsibility of NMA. 

  • Exploring new peaks and destinations: One of the responsibilities of NMA is to explore new climbing peaks and promote for climbing. We need more products sales. More peaks available for climbing means more choices for climbers.
