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.
Mark, USA My family of four went to Everest Base Camp just before the pandemic hit the world. It was a long-awaited family vacation. We go camping whenever we can. But my teen boys were worried about being in the remote mountains for two weeks. Nonetheless, they were still up for a challenge. We knew about Nepal Hiking Team through a family friend. They previously did one of their treks and had only lovely things to say about their services. And we, too, listening to their experience, contacted Nepal Hiking Team for our family vacation. They were cautious with our requests and requirements. They were quick in responding to our questionable amount of inquiries. They were always thorough and prompt. Likewise, our pill of happiness and motivation, our guide Bhim was always there to encourage us whenever we felt it wasn't easy to go forward. He assured us we could finish the journey, and we did too. He never forgot to remind us to stay hydrated and that also on an hourly basis. He routinely checked our pulses to check our oxygen level and was always asking if we needed anything. The trekking team took good care of us during the trek. As much as our safety was given a priority, they made sure we were enjoying our trek as well. He was a master of trekking and had every bit of information about the mountains. He knew the mountains' names and continued to amaze us with his knowledge of mountains and their people. Our family vacation was fantastic, and its praise goes to the company and our talented guide Bhim. Without him and our robust porters, we would not enjoy the mountains' beauty to the fullest. We are happy that we went with our friend's recommendation and choose NHT for our extraordinary journey. We plan to visit again when all the commotion caused by the virus subsides.
Jessica, Australia I am glad that I decided to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek. My partner and I both are avid hikers. Before this, we had never opted for trekking. Nepal was on our list of places to go for a long time, but we never got a chance to dwell on it due to work. But last winter, everything worked for us. And we decided it is time to visit Nepal. We both wanted to do trekking, but since Nepal's mountains are not easy for beginners, I was more leaning towards doing easy and short treks in Nepal. But my partner was so keen on doing the Everest Base Camp trek, so we agreed to the EBC trek. Even though we had decided on the hike, I was still skeptical about doing it because of its high-altitude nature. And when we found Nepal Hiking Team, we stated our concern to them as well. They were so helpful and informed them, and the trek is doable by the first-time trekker. They advised we got on training mode immediately as we still had few months left before starting the walk. Since I was the most concerned one, I paid most attention to building physical stamina. After months of training and waiting, it was finally time for the trek, and when we arrived in Nepal, Kathmandu airport, NHT was warmly welcomed by the team. A day before the hike, Ganga briefed about the walk, and the next day we got on the flight to Lukla. It was frightening but worthy of an adventurous experience. Our guide Narayan, amazed us with his knowledge about the mountains. He always made sure we were comfortable on the trek and never rushed our journey. He instead obliged to approach the walk smoothly and slowly. As I was more conscious about getting altitude sickness, he shared many helpful tips to avoid altitude sickness. He was very patient and always answered whenever we had one too many questions to ask. And for that reason, we are thrilled we choose NHT and have Narayan for our trek. If it were not for NHT, I would not be able to experience the trek's beautiful features. I am so thankful to NHT for arranging this wonderful and unique. All the credits go to your fantastic team for our wonderful experience in the Himalayas. We will revisit Nepal and have your company plan our next trip!
Paul Wilson, USA Everest Base Camp Trek was on my bucket list ever since I saw the bewildering Everest range images on my Pinterest page. That scenic destination stole my heart in a bit. So, I was like I had to be there someday. And when the perfect time came around, I started preparing for the trek. Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to me by my friends who trekked EBC a few years back. I immediately contact them and arrange my most awaited journey. My guide for the trek was Paban, and I am lucky to have him on the hike. I am a slow walker as I did not have any experience of trekking. He was very attentive about my pace. I never asked to walk faster as I was trekking in a group. He has a broad knowledge of the mountains and about the Sherpa people. He explained about all the mountains visible to our eyes. There were many things best all through the journey. A few of my best experiences on the trek would be breakfast at Everest View Hotel, rest day in Namche Bazaar, and Everest base camp itself. Also, the flight to Lukla was quivering, which fulfilled my need for an adrenaline rush. Similarly, the early morning hike to Kala Patthar fulfilled my thirst for breathtaking views of the mountains. From Kala Patthar, we got an up-close view of Mt. Everest, not from the base camp. I am glad I went on this journey. It was everything I had always expected it to be. And for not letting my expectations down, I am very much thankful to Paban and Nepal Hiking Team for making this trek a trip of a lifetime. From the beginning of the journey to Nepal's last day, they were always present to look after my needs. I am glad I choose them and very thankful for unforgettable memories. Every part of the journey was cherishing, and I look forward to exploring more trekking trails of Nepal in the future.
John, United States A good agency is the key to making or breaking a good travel experience. This is the most important factor that I look for when I am deciding on selecting a travel agency for my trips. For my visit to Nepal, the peak trekking season had many trekkers doing the Everest Base Camp Trek and I was no exception. When I checked Nepal Hiking Team, I was thoroughly impressed by their proficient website. When I e-mailed them about my query, I was surprised and immediately impressed by how prompt and detailed the responses were. Then as the arrangement of the trip was underway, I was thoroughly convinced that I had selected a good agency. It was proven true when I arrived in Nepal for the trip. I was greeted by Rabin, my guide for the trip. His well-mannerism and kind nature made me feel at ease. Then with a good briefing by Mr. Ganga at the office fully sealed my concentrated belief that I was in good hands. This relieved my peace of mind and I just let go the entire trip. It was the most fun I have ever had!  I had the best services and Rabin’s guidance made the trip into a smooth sailing! Thank You Nepal Hiking Team! Hope you guys will have more tourist after this ongoing pandemic.
