Peak Climbing and Expedition in Nepal is one of the most exciting adventures which has been attracting people from all over the world. There are many good reasons to go on expedition & climb the peak. We have taken a group of friends and families on custom climbs, climbers with specific time constraints & climbers who want to climb a specific route or peak. By limiting group size, you gain a lot more flexibility as far as scheduling a trip & we can tailor your expedition to meet your expectations.
Our Mera Peak expedition is the ideal first time climbing experience in Nepal. From the summit, you’ll take in stunning views of the highest mountains on earth. This expedition provides the best Himalayan panorama available from any 6000m summit in Nepal. Better still, you’ll be well away from the crowds heading up and down the main Everest valley.
