Trip Overview

The Mera Peak Climbing is one of the most amazing and breath-taking thrills of Nepal. It is an unforgettable adventure that takes you through the hidden Hinku valley of the Khumbu region. A daring climbing adventure, the Mera Peak climb lets you summit to the tallest climbing peak of Nepal. It is a great way to enjoy Nepal’s Himalayan lifestyle and to take in the Khumbu’s natural beauty. In addition, it is also one of the most marvelous accomplishments as well. The panorama of the Himalayas from the top of the summit of Mera Peak is something that is simply indescribable.

Highlights of the Mera Peak Trek

Much like most of the Khumbu region treks, the Mera Peak Climbing also begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From then on, you follow the trekking path to far-off beaten-path villages of the Hinku valley, like Paiya, Thaknak and Khare among others. Throughout the journey, the views of the Everest peaks make the journey even more extraordinary. The towering silver Himalayas line the skyline of the valley in the most dramatic way. Sleep under the stars surrounded by the snow as you make your way to the summit! Enjoy views of peaks like Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, the Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and many more as you relish in the natural pristine environment of the river valley. It is a great respite for your mountaineering soul!    

Is the Mera Peak Expedition Difficult?

Although the Mera Peak Climbing is not a technical journey, you still need good stamina for the adventure as you will be trekking for extended periods of time on consecutive days. It takes a lot of stamina and endurance to overcome climbing with weight on your back. Thus, prior training for the Mera Peak climb is important. Previous climbing experience is not necessary; however, it is important to have knowledge about correctly using the climbing equipments for the journey. Pre-climbing training will be provided to you by our professional guide during the journey. You will use equipments like ropes, harnesses and crampons among others as you make your way to the top of the summit. In general, you will need to train for the climb 3 to 4 weeks prior to the journey. Aerobic and cardio exercises work best to built and boost your stamina and increase your body’s endurance capabilities.

Reviews

Harald Nesensohn, Australia I have been a long enthusiast of mountaineering, and Nepal has always been on my list of destinations to visit for its Himalayas. I decided to have Nepal Hiking Team arrange my Mera Peak Climb as I decided that it was one of those adventures that I really wanted to get under my belt. For the services, I would definitely rate Nepal Hiking Team as one of the best travel agencies that I have come across. They were swift in their responses to my questions and queries and when I arrived, they were with me every step of the way, reassuring me of my safety and constantly putting me in a state of mind where I knew that I was in good hands. My guide, Pasang Sherpa, is a veteran in mountaineering and climbing peaks, and I could not be more grateful for his company during my climbing journey. From arranging my accommodations and tents during the trail to making sure that didn't lose my footing during the climb up the Mera Peak, Pasang took care of everything flawlessly. His sentiment of us being a family during the journey was also quite heart-warming; it was reassuring to know that he had my back. I was also constantly in contact with the head office of the agency as well, and I knew that if anything happened, then I need not worry about anything as the agency will take care of it for me. I was left to only enjoy my climb and to appreciate Nepal's Himalayan life without having to worry about anything else. Overall, it was the best trekking adventure that I had. I definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team to anyone looking for Nepal treks. With them, you can do no wrong.
Raymond Low, Singapore Nepal Hiking Team provide an excellent guide to me when I hiked Everest Base Camp. My guide, Mr. Prakesh Rai, is very professional and caring... He always gives me very informative replies whenever I have a question or two about the terrain which we are trekking, the history of certain towns or places we passed by or stayed...He is always asking how I am (my old right ankle injury came back)...and will help me carry my load.... We had a good time together especially when we take photographs of the awesome scenery.....He works tirelessly and would be a concern for my diet and always asked me if I had enough of food, hows my leg was, and whether feeling ok especially when we are going towards a higher altitude..... We had a wonderful acclimatization climb and he is always observing me how I am doing. Nepal Hiking Team rocks!.... And I would sincerely recommend my friends to this group..... It’s simply awesome!... Thank you Nepal Hiking team and it's truly a great experience traveling with your professional guide!
Yang, Singapore It was an awesome experience in Nepal, in which a big part of my trip was covered in the mountain, thank to NHT. Ganga, the company manager has been engaging since my enquiry and very efficient and patient with all my queries. They are flexible to customize to my needs due to my planned itinerary besides hiking. They also made arrangement for airport pick up and Ganga met me in person in my lodge to go through the procedures and discussion. 2 days prior to the trek it was raining heavily and many flights were cancelled. We were lucky to tag along a rescue helicopter to Lukla, also thank to Ganga's arrangement. When we arrived at the start point, we were welcome by the friendly guide and porters. My relationship with Gurung, the guide was very good, he took care of me every single bit of the trip, as I was a slow walker in the team. He would check our conditions from time to time to ensure our well beings. Gurung and I joked around in the tea houses and we made many friends and some exchange of cultural knowledge. I was not well when I returned from Base Camp. We discussed and we decided that an evacuation was needed. Gurung visited me in the hospital and sent me back to the hotel after discharge. I had a farewell lunch with him. Ganga and Hari, the 2 managers visited me on the 2 days and they even sent me to the hospital again for report collection. Hari also sent me to the airport on my departure day. I have total satisfaction and heart-felt appreciation for Nepal Hiking Team. There were other companies who tried to compromise prices and quality but not NHT, who insisted on quality and care above all. I'm back in Singapore safely. And they are keeping in contact with me on some follow-ups. I truly want to recommend you this company for their awesome service given the reasonable if not attractive price! This trip was so awesome although I had some hiccups on my decent. I miss Nepal alot, and the friendship shared.
Stephen, Australia I finished the ABC and Bhutan Tours with Nepal Hiking Team and had a very good time. It was a great pleasure dealing with Balaram and Ganga. They are extremely professional, flexible, and accommodating. prior to the trip, I had been constantly emailing Balaram with my questions, whether or not they are directly related to the trek. Balaram was always extremely responsive with detailed answers and he was always patient. When I first got to Kathmandu, both Ganga and Balaram met me at the hotel to greet me. Throughout the trip, they constantly checked up with the guide to make sure that everything went okay. Overall, the trek was well organized and I can say with confidence that the team has done their best to ensure that my needs were met. I am already thinking about coming back to Nepal for my next trek and I will certainly go with Nepal Hiking Team again.
Ian, Canada My wife and I did the Everest Base Camp Trek as organized by Nepal Hiking Team. We read guidebooks and numerous websites leading up to this trip, but nothing quite captured the awesomeness of just being there in person. Each day of our trek was physically and mentally exhausting, but our guide saw to it that we were looked after - be it on the trail, dining, or settling in at the lodge each night. Nepal Hiking Team did a fantastic job for us; I could not be happier with how this trip was organized, and how Balaram and Ganga took care of us.
