The NMA is a commission established to oversee trekking, climbing, and mountaineering activities in Nepal. Its responsibilities include maintaining, conserving, and protecting the natural environment, rare flora and fauna, as well as coordinating emergency rescue operations.

Climbing and mountaineering activities are inherently risky and adventurous. Treks often pass through various national parks, conservation areas, and restricted zones. The permit system was implemented to mitigate risks to rare plants and animals, cultural heritage, and the safety of mountaineers. Consequently, the government of Nepal introduced the Permit system and established the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). The NMA has categorized climbing peaks and mountains into two groups: Group A and Group B.

Group A includes 15 peaks, such as Mera Peak and Island Peak, which require Higher Peak Climbing permits. Group B comprises 18 peaks, including Yala Peak, Pisang Peak, Chulu East Peak, and Chulu West, which require Lower Peak Climbing permits.
