Mera Peak Climbing 6476m

“This was my second time to head to the Himalaya and also the second time for me to use Above The Himalaya. As my first experience was fabulous and I thought it couldn’t get any better, well I was proven wrong.
Yet again, Puru and his team pulled out all the stops to make this climb of Mera Peak something I will never forget! From the first email I sent to Puru about organising the climb for to the very last just before I jumped on the plane to fly to Kathmandu, the communication was perfect. Then from the second I landed in Kathmandu to the second I left Kathmandu with Puru, everything was perfect.

The climb of Mera peak itself was a tough due to the high altitude and coldness that you get from going up high. But all was made that much easier by the hospitality of my Guide and his superb knowledge of the route we were taking, knowing every mountain peak to making sure I was put up in a comfy bed in the night with the best food.
I can safely say there is no other trekking/climbing company I would use other than Above The Himalaya.
Also I am already planning on climbing 7100m this year and yes you guessed it, I will be using Puru and his company Above The Himalaya!”

Secod time on Mera peak climbing wiht AHT

The first time I did some trekking with Puru to Tengboche and Pochara and rated ATH excellent then. Puru and team took care of me so well I came back for a second time to climb Mera Peak climbing, the Same excellent service (trekking guide, porter and this time climbing guide). Puru always checks in to see how things are going and I could always count on his people for help along the trek (14 days). Thanks again Puru, your the best!!
