Mera with Arun Valley

We have had really amazing Mera Peak Climbing Experience in Nepal. Last year we summated Singu Chuli Peak with Nepal Guide and this year again came for Mera Peak Climbing. We are very familiar for Nepalese society, culture, Nepalese people and everything. We do recognize other trekking and climbing agencies but we choose Nepal guide to make our climbing experience successful. 

We would obviously contact them again for next trekking or peak summit trip.
