A special Mera Peak package based on tea-house trek was organized by Explore Himalaya with 5 participants in April 2012. This was actually an experiment to provide the budget friendly trek to our valuable customer and also for the tea-house owner by bringing in business up to Mera peak base camp. From base camp, our team of Sherpa was stationed throughout with food, equipments and other gears to support the climber.
All the participants of this trip were happy with the service of our supporting staff and tea-house owner. Sadly, at that time, due to heavy snowfall around 4 feet from Chutunga, none of the participants summit the peak. Our one participant’s reached the altitude of 6200m, unfortunately his plastic boot broke and had to return back to the base camp.
All in all, they were satisfied with their accomplishment !
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
