Baden Powell Peak is locally known as Urkema Peak, it was renamed Lord Baden Powell Peak (5,718m) in 2007. Lord Baden Powell Peak, a mushroom-shaped mountain situated in the Langtang region is one of the popular peaks to climb because it’s easily accessible to climb and not very expensive (Royalty Free Mountain) offers a perfect alternative to Imja Tse or Island Peak in the Khumbu region. Seen from the southwest, Baden Powell Peak almost looks like Ama Dablam which is situated in the Everest region. The peak was named after the father of the Scouts movement by the Nepal Government to mark the centenary celebration of the International Scouts Movement. It is surrounded by majestic peaks such as Langtang I, II, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa and Shishapangma in Tibet.

The trail to Lord Baden Powell Peak is located off-the-beaten-track, away from the usual trekking crowd. The villages, dotting the trail, are pristine and untouched by modernity. But the villagers are quite poor. Most of them live below the poverty line and it is hoped that the economic condition of the villagers would improve once this trail gains popularity among trekkers. Geographical structure, culture, and tradition of people from your starting place to ending place are totally different. Their language, caste, living style, facial structure everything seems so different and where you will get the chance to know what is Nepal and is in Nepal. And this is what you are here in Nepal. To mark the launch of the Lord Baden-Powell Trek and Lord Baden Powell Peak, scouts from different countries like Korea,  Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia gathered in Nepal in August 2007 and were the first to trek along the Lord Baden Powell trail and ascend the Lord Baden Powell peak. Take your hiking with G.K.Majestic Trek to know everything about.

A couple of crevasses are on the way up before we climb 100 m straight to the top. We need another fixed rope to reach the summit. The ridge at the top is very narrow and has very little space.
