Vital information

******* Climate and Seasonality *******

Nepal is subject to monsoon which determines the choice of trekking & Climbing areas depending on the season: Spring Seasons [March to May] is ideal to watch the explosion of vegetation, including rhododendrons, and from around the Annapurna to Everest, Generally clear skies in the morning, marked cloudiness in the late afternoon. The more we advance towards the month of May (monsoon), the more clouds rise early.

[Mid September to November] This is the main trekking & Climbing season in Nepal. Day temperatures in Kathmandu are approx. above 20degC. Skies are usually clear and days on trek & climb are sunny and mild with clear mountain views. Nights will be colder with temperatures dropping as low as to -5degC at the higher altitudes.

Summer Season Starts from June to September. Dolpo trekking and Mustang trekking of Nepal, and Tibet tour can be done in the monsoon.

Winter, from Mid December to late February, the cold is dry, the clear sky, the sunshine ... Many benefits without the tourist season. For example, short trek like chisopani and nagrkot trek,ghorepani poonhill trekking,Ghandruk Village trek would ideal for Winter Treks.

******* Travel Insurance *******

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you are insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs, air ambulance and helicopter rescue services). We also strongly recommend that you take out delayed departure and cancellation insurance, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.

We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your MSTE itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken in the trip to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan & India. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses.

For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet, Bhutan & India trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage.You need send us your copy of your insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.

Excellent Mera Peak Expeditions

Dear Pasang,Thank you for a well run trek. Our guide was very experienced and was quite sensible about our approach, especially compared to some of the other guides. Overall, the trek was an awesome experience, something I will never forget. There is something amazing about standing on top of one of Nepal's peaks and looking out over the land. Thank you for organizing the opportunity for that to happen for us.

Sincerely
Craig- Australia

FAQS

Mera Peak is not a technical peak but you need good stamina for a long day effort while climbing it. You can climb Mera peak without any previous climbing experience and skills of using climbing equipment but knowledge on using equipment and previous experience would be beneficial although not mandatory because a pre-ice climbing training is provided to you in Base Camp to make you skillful on using climbing gears such as ropes, ice pick, harness, crampons.

We use standard rooms at quality hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes up to Khare teahouses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bon fire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be always outside the room. During Climbing Period, we provide quality Tent with Matters.

Most teahouses (lodges) in Mera peak trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat(rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you'll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to destination.

Yes, our entire climbing Sherpa guides have all received 45-day training from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. The guides have also received high altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project). Please check our Trekking Guides Profiles and Training Certificates.

In major places, we arrange guesthouse with hot shower. And in rest of the places, water in bucket will be provided for shower.

Our company insures all our staff members, including guides, cooks, Sherpas and porters. Please browse though Company Information pages to view insurance details
