The Baden Powell Scout Peak is the second mountain peak in Nepal named after a foreigner and was approved by the government of Nepal in 2006. It is situated in the Ganesh Himal area at Langtang valley, North of Kathmandu with the height of 5,890 meters.
Locally known as Urkema Peak, it was renamed Baden Powell Scout Peak (5,890m) in 2006. 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.
The first official historical climb was held from 28 August to 16 September 2007 in conjunction with the centenary year of Scouting. On 13th September 2007, the Baden Powell Scout Peak has finally been reached by 15 Scouts from five countries namely, Australia, Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Nepal. Likewise, BP Scout Peak was climbed by scouts from Finland on 2010, Japan on 2012, Nepal on 2016 & UK and Nepal on 2017.
