Notes for Mera peak climbers!

The Mera peak summit climb information stated above is just a guideline and standard template that we provide for climbers. However, the trip itinerary is possible to modify at your request to accommodate your specific requirements. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of itinerary en route.

It is, however, very unlikely that the itinerary would be substantially altered. If amendments are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.

What makes Mera peak climbing special?

Opportunities for challenging hiking and pleasant climbing tours are scattered all over this planet. You just need to know where to find them. If Climbers wish only our services like Mera peak climbing permits, guide services from Khare to Mera peak summit climbing, and return to Khare, we can also arrange it for you on a cheap deal. Despite that Gokyo Treks and Expedition believe in quality services at the lowest climbing prices.

First safety and satisfaction is our concern. We are a team of professional, experienced, and licensed local guides who know the destination much better than others. Not only this but also we give benefits to the local communities and help to conserve natural resources which reduced costs and consumption.

Mera Peak Climbing Review

Mera Peak Summit Climbing for breathtaking view in our life

Rated 5.0 out of 5

A friend of mine recommended Gokyo Treks and Expedition for our holiday in Nepal. We plan our holiday seriously and checking their impressions in the internet forum. We found a lot of good reviews of the agency so we have no dought to book our trip with them.

Firstly they are local agency based in Kathmandu and secondly, their prices are unbelievably lower than others. He arranged Makalu barun National park permit, Mera peak climbing permit and issued our Lukla flight tickets, and sent us a copy for proof his duty before we landed in Kathmandu. So, we received all permits and tickets originally right on our arrival.

Our climbing Sherpa Guide was professional, and well equipped so we were not worrying while we had bad weather in a high camp. Some other climbers were stuck near 100 meters above the high camp and rescued. Luckily the weather on the next day was sunny morning so we ascend the Mera peak summit and descend down to Khare quickly.

And yes! It’s not an easy trail to everyone!

Our porter Dewan Kulung carried our luggage all the way and was very friendly and honest. While reaching back at hotel in Kathmandu, Ammar Guni, owner of the agency handover the successful climbing mera peak certificate. What a surprise for us.

Thank you Gokyo treks agency making our climbing trip lifetime memorable by serving the best guide and porter. We can’t wait to return again for our next climbing in the Himalayas.

Gokyo Treks and Expedition is the best travel service you can envision!! Ammar, the proprietor, coordinated our Mera peak summit climbing in a very expert manner. He responded to many inquiries so persistently and he was consistently fair with regard to what is possible or not.

During our climbing and hiking excursion to Mera Peak, we generally kept in touch with him and we knew whether there would have been any issues Ammar would have had organized everything to help us.

He truly needs that you have a great time in Nepal. You can feel that! Many thanks!!! We previously did a lot of outings and mountain tours, yet this one was exceptionally unique. We think it was a direct result of the delightful nature yet significantly more on account of the Nepalese individuals like Ammar!

We had pleasure to use services of Gokyo Treks & Expeditions during our tour. It was 19 days in the mountains, trekking and Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha Pass climbing. Services were professional, stuff was really helpful and friendly.

During our trip there was good communication with Ammar, so we could be sure that someone is escorting us. I can highly recommend this agency and will use their services again for sure.
