The Three Peaks of Nepal Expedition is an exceptional opportunity to experience Himalayan climbing at its finest. This program is developed to introduce you to the wonders of the Everest region. Here you will ascend to three stunning 20,000-foot (6000+ meter) peaks, which provide some of the most awe-inspiring sights in the world. You will have the opportunity to engage yourself in the mountain and Sherpa culture while taking on the incredible feat of climbing Mera Peak (6,476M), Island Peak (6189m), and Lobuche East (6119m). Standing atop Mera Peak, you will be rewarded with stunning views of five 8,000m peaks, including Lhotse, Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga Himalayan peaks.

Island Peak, the most technically challenging of the three peaks, requires climbers to navigate a steel ladder across crevasse openings and climb or descend a 90-degree vertical wall just before or after reaching the summit. Lobuche East is a moderate yet technical climb, and another 6000M peak on our itinerary. The Three Peaks of Nepal Expedition offers moderately technical climbing, with Island Peak being the most challenging climb (graded at 2B). With a strong desire for high adventure and good physical condition, this climb is achievable for anyone.

Our team will support you in developing and advancing your alpine climbing skills as we embark on this fantastic journey and climb three great peaks. Ascending three prominent six-thousand-meter peaks in a single trip provides a remarkable opportunity to experience genuine Himalayan mountaineering. 

Mera Peak

Mera Peak(6,476m) is Situated in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas, just south of Mount Everest. It falls under the category of trekking peaks and is one of the most sought-after peaks in this category. Mera Peak is considered the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Reaching its summit offers a breathtaking view of the majestic 8000m peaks such as Mt. Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Kanchenjunga, and many more. In the Everest region of Nepal, Mera Peak is the highest-elevation trekking peak. Its summit offers views of Himalayan peaks, including Mt. Everest, Kangtega, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, and many others, making it one of the world's most precious skylines.

Sen Tenzin and Jimmy Roberts achieved the first successful summit of Mera Peak on May 20th, 1953. Although technically straightforward, the high altitude of the Himalayas makes Mera Peak a physically demanding challenge, and climbers are advised to undergo prior training. The summit of Mera Peak provides the highest permitted viewpoint from a trekking peak, and it is no wonder that those who attempt to scale this peak consider it one of the most beautiful and thrilling peaks in the Himalayas.

Lobuche Peak:

The Lobuche Peak boasts a dual personality, with two distinct summits known as the East and West Peaks. The East Peak stands tall at 6,119 meters, while its counterpart, the West Peak, towers at 6,145 meters. A ridge connects the two summits, but a significant gap exists between them. The East Peak is a popular trekking destination, while the West Peak is reserved for more adventurous expeditions. Lobuche's rocky East face, which forms the south ridge, rises majestically over the Khumbu Glacier's moraines. It casts an imposing shadow over its surroundings. With many established routes and untapped potential for new ones, Lobuche is a mountain that continues to captivate mountaineers worldwide.

Island Peak 

Island Peak, known by its Nepalese name Imja Tse, stands at a modest altitude of 6,189m and is a popular destination for climbers of all levels. English mountaineer Eric Shipton gave the peak its name in 1953, as he thought it resembled an island amidst a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Despite its relatively low technical difficulty, it offers a challenging climb. Moreover, it is among the most sought-after peaks over 6,000m. Hundreds of climbers flock to Island Peak each year to test their endurance and stand at the summit, surrounded by the stunning Khumbu range, which includes Nuptse and Lhotse.

The climb to Island Peak is also a rewarding journey through the Khumbu Region, passing through the route to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar. This peak is ideal for novice climbers looking to hone their skills at high altitudes and on snow and ice, as it is mostly non-technical. The climb also provides opportunities to experience the Himalayan Sherpa culture. Also, witness the stunning rhododendron forests, and enjoy striking views of the southwest face of Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world.

What to Expect With Lobuche East, island, and Mera Peak

Although we desire to adhere to the itinerary for the three Peak Climbing treks, unforeseen circumstances may require us to alter it. Such situations may arise due to sudden weather changes, unfavorable trail conditions, or a tourist or staff member falling ill. In such cases, we have no choice but to adjust the schedule thus. You'll fly from Kathmandu to Lukla, located at 2810 m. Here you will get to meet the rest of the team. You will also meet your friendly and experienced Sherpa guides. From there, you'll take a pleasant three-hour walk to Phakding, where you'll spend your first night. If you're fortunate, you may even glimpse some snow-capped peaks.

The aspiration is to soar higher, perpetually seeking greater challenges and pushing ourselves to surpass limits. It's ingrained in human nature to explore the unknown and test our capabilities. Undertaking audacious endeavors such as scaling the majestic Himalayan summit demands unwavering resolve and tenacity. The rewards reaped from such awe-inspiring experiences are invaluable, and the extent to which one chooses to challenge oneself is entirely personal.

We highly recommend considering the Khumbu three-peak expedition, attempting two peaks over 6,000 meters, such as Lobuche East and Island Peak, or combining 6,000-metre peaks, like Mera Peak. Spending more than 30 days in the mountains will give you the understanding and patience required for climbing in the Himalayas. It will give you a sense of what climbing in technical and non-technical high-altitude sections feels like. These experiences will be invaluable and help you develop the mental toughness necessary for taking on more challenging and higher expeditions in the future. Completing these expeditions will prepare you to face even more daunting challenges in the future.

Furthermore, there is the matter of the positive aspects. The base camp resounds with celebrating water and warm sustenance while fostering a sense of community in the mountain terrain that motivates and assists its members. There is satisfaction in achieving each milestone and finally reaching the summit, where the power and beauty of the natural environment can humble one. Despite feeling small and insignificant, the accomplishment is still present. Learning from both the favorable and unfavorable occurrences inherent in scaling high-altitude mountains is crucial to reach the peak and relishing the journey successfully. This feat is within the grasp of any ordinary individual, but cultivating the appropriate expertise is exceedingly critical.

Route of Three Peak Climbing  

Your expedition starts with a Lukla flight and a short trek to Phakding. Afterward, you approach the renowned Everest Base Camp and travel through the Sagarmatha National Park. Along the way, you pause at various Sherpa settlements in the Dudh Koshi River Valley, including Namche. Following an arduous hike through Everest's base camp and Kala Patthar, you finally arrive at the High Camp of the initial peak you intend to conquer, Lobuche East. The path to the pinnacle demands a semi-technical approach, and you rely on fixed ropes to reach the summit.

After Lobuche East Peak, your next challenge is to conquer Island Peak, which requires retracing your steps to Dingboche and heading towards Chukkung to reach the base camp. However, scaling Island Peak can be rugged due to the need to cross crevasses using steel ladders and a vertical ninety-degree incline just before reaching the summit, which is the most challenging part of the climb.

After a successful summit to Island Peak, your journey takes you to the remote Honku Valley, where you must cross the Amphu Labtsa Pass. Finally, you will conquer Mera Peak, the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Compared to the previous mountains, ascending to the summit of Mera Peak is less technical and more accessible. Once you reach the top, you'll get the views of the world's five tallest mountains. You will climb Mount Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu here. As you descend towards Lukla, you'll pass through the ecologically diverse Makalu Barun National Park and the seldom-explored villages of the Hinku Valley. Your journey concludes once you return to Kathmandu.

As mountaineers make their way through the picturesque villages of Khumbu and Makalu/Barun Valley, they will eventually reach the base of each peak where their alpine camping adventure begins. This expedition caters to a wide range of skill levels, from beginner to intermediate, and prior experience is not obligatory. However, climbers must possess exceptional endurance fitness as the expedition spans a month. The route offers diverse challenges, from scrambling on rocks to scaling steep ice and snow, with several campsites scattered across the mountain. Join us as we capture the journey through imagery and embark on the awe-inspiring but demanding journey toward conquering three magnificent peaks in Nepal.

Can I Choose Three Peak Climbing If I Am A Beginner/ Novice Climber?

Yes, you can choose Three Peak Climbing, even if you are a beginner. Mera Peak is ideal for beginner climbers because of its non-technical climbing style. Unlike other peaks, climbers do not need advanced alpine techniques such as fixed-line ropes, ladders, or ice axes. While the ice and snowy surfaces will present a challenge, it is the most difficult part of the climb. Camping at Mera Base and High Camp is a highlight of the expedition. It offers a secluded alpine environment surrounded by snow and mountains.

As climbers ascend to High Camp, the views of the surrounding mountains become more breathtaking. At the summit of Mera Peak, climbers are rewarded with the widest and most beautiful views of the Himalayas, including the 8000M+ peaks. You will see Mt. Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, and Kanchenjunga. Other iconic peaks, such as Ama Dablam, Baruntse, and Chamlang, can also be seen in the distance. 

Island Peak is classified as a semi-technical climb, so it will be a little harder than the Mera Peak summit. But this expedition can be done by even a beginner climber with the proper preparation. For this peak, you must entail fixed-line ropes during ascent and descent. The most challenging piece of the climb is the summit day, which can be physically and mentally demanding for novice climbers.

The route is also dotted with wide crevasses, necessitating the use of steel ladders already in place from the base camp to the high camp/crampon point. This feature of the climb makes it an excellent opportunity to acquire fundamental mountaineering abilities and grasp the fitness level required for scaling more enormous mountains. The summit ridge is highly exposed, with limited space for climbers to congregate simultaneously. Despite this, reaching the summit brings a profound sense of achievement, and the stunning Himalayan vistas make it a highly rewarding feat.

The Lobuche East Peak, rated as 2B, is comparable to Island Peak, making it a feasible expedition for beginners to tackle along with the other two peaks. Climbers must employ aided fixed-line ropes, be proficient in abseiling techniques, and feel at ease on open terrain. The ascent mainly entails navigating snow, ice, and rock surfaces. Unlike the Island Peak peak, the narrow, exposed ridge offers a view of Everest. The climb is at a 60-70 degree angle, which is difficult for climbers at the novice level. Regardless of your climbing objectives, this could be an ideal mountain to scale.

Essential Info

The difficulty of Three Peak Climbing (Mera, Lobuche, Island)

Mera Peak holds a 1B rating on the alpine grading scale, whereas Island Peak and Lobuche East Peak are rated 2B. The summit climb is the most challenging and demanding aspect of the expedition. At high elevations, proper breathing can prove to be a strenuous task. But with adequate acclimatization, hydration, and nourishment, the body can adapt and recover.

Upon departing from the base camp, climbers will confront the authentic alpine challenge of scaling and descending steep ice and snow surfaces. Each day dedicated to summiting can last up to 10 hours of hiking, climbing, and descending to reach the peak or come as close to it as possible before sunrise. To accomplish the Khumbu Three Peak Expedition, one must possess remarkable endurance and physical stamina. This grueling yet rewarding journey will test all prior training, determination, mental fortitude, and ardor for adventure.


Lobuche East Peak Summit:- Ascending Lobuche East (6119 meters) demands that clients have a firm grasp of fundamental mountaineering skills, including rock scrambling and using ice axes and crampons to scale snow and ice. Lobuche East is a graded PD alpine mountain, incorporating technical climbing and intricate glaciers, necessitating climbers to possess some background with critical winter or alpine courses. Though a basic skill training day will be provided as a refresher, it is optimal if clients have already established a strong foundation in alpine climbing techniques. No further elaboration or supplementation is required.

Island Peak Summit:- Island Peak, located in Nepal at an impressive 6189 meters above sea level, is a challenging alpine mountain with various technical climbing features and sprawling, exposed glaciers. The ascent to the top involves scrambling across rocky terrain, traversing roped steel ladders over the glacier, and scaling a steep snow and ice wall with fixed ropes, culminating in an anxiety-inducing final summit ridge. Our professional guides will educate climbers on essential mountaineering skills, such as rock scrambling and navigating snow and ice with ice axes and crampons.

To take on the final summit, it is recommended that climbers possess previous experience in basic winter or alpine climbing to comprehend the technical aspects involved. In addition, climbers must be in exceptional physical condition to withstand the strenuous demands of the climb. With a combination of physical fitness, essential climbing skills, and sheer determination, the summit of Island Peak can be achieved, granting panoramic views of the Himalayas in all directions as a spectacular reward for your hard work.

Mera Peak Summit:- Mera Peak, towering at 6476M, is a non-technical trekking peak that can be reached without requiring specialized climbing skills such as handling ropes, gears, or ice axes. It is a popular destination for novice climbers and those with little mountaineering experience. Although there are a few small opening crevasses during the climb, Mera Peak poses minimal non-technical challenges. Climbers must undergo preparative fitness and altitude training before embarking on the ascent. Climbers should be capable of carrying 5-8 kgs of their backpacks, trekking up and downhill daily for 15/16 days, and pushing themselves during the final summit climb.

Altitude Sickness:- 

The adventurous spirit within us often drives us to take on challenges that appear even impossible. But we should not ignore the risks and potential dangers inherent in such bold pursuits. A wise adventurer understands the potential consequences and prepares for the worst-case scenarios.

Prevention should be our primary concern, rather than relying on a cure when something goes wrong. Knowing the symptoms of acute mountain sickness when ascending three peaks is crucial. There is no typical shape of those who may be affected. The warning signs are there for all to see. Even veteran mountain climbers who have conquered Everest ten times or more are not immune to the symptoms. It's normal to feel the effects of altitude, but following established guidelines and precautions is essential to ensure a safe, enjoyable, and successful adventure.

Training Required For Three Peak Climbing Expeditions

Our clients' successful climb of Island, Mera, and Lobuche Peak is our top priority, and we urge you to take it seriously as well. To achieve this, several factors must be considered. First and foremost, you must have an itinerary that includes ample acclimatization. Secondly, it's essential to create a customized training plan that targets the specific requirements of the trip. Lastly, being well-versed in the Himalayan style and fixed-line climbing techniques is vital to your safety when climbing high on the glacier.


Standing atop a mountain after a successful expedition requires more than sheer willpower. Endurance is the bedrock upon which a climber must build their abilities, encompassing physical fitness, mental fortitude, and technical skills. The climb is a  difficult journey that can stretch for weeks or even months, requiring climbers to complete critical tasks under duress. Moreover, you should strengthen the heart and lungs' ability to deliver oxygen to the muscles. In simpler terms, it's about building the ability to climb for longer periods without giving in to fatigue. Cardio training involves tapping into aerobic and anaerobic systems, helping climbers stay on top of their game throughout the expedition.

Add Technical Skills:-

Your program's technical skills development phase can be the most enjoyable part. Climbing mountains involves navigating through rock, ice, and snow, so you should be proficient in climbing all three before planning any expeditions. While maintaining your base aerobic and anaerobic fitness, remember to incorporate technical climbing into your routine.

Focus on building basic strength for the climbing you plan on doing. Indoor gyms provide an excellent opportunity to practice rope skills, attend clinics, and seek expert guidance. If you're lucky to live near a crag, make it a standard part of your weekly routine. Add long approaches or run/bike to the crag to simulate longer days. Attempt multiple routes to enhance your technical skills and practice relevant rope systems.

Travel to the best climbing destinations to stay motivated and maintain your skills. While a nice trip can reward your hard work, keep climbing by interspersing it with some runs.


To best prepare for the three peak climbs, it's recommended to simulate the actual trail and climb through a tailored training program. This can be achieved by incorporating a weighted backpack into your training routine, gradually increasing to 18kg/40lbs.

As the climb entails walking up and down steep steps, crossing glaciers, and wearing heavier mountaineering boots with crampons in low-oxygen environments, it's essential to factor these elements into your training.

During the climb, you'll be walking 4 to 8 hours a day and possibly up to 10-12 hours a day, so it's essential to push your limits during your training and prepare accordingly.

For those not accustomed to hiking, beginning with day-long hikes and gradually extending to week-long treks is a good starting point. Additionally, incorporating multi-week hikes and gradually building up from 2-3 hour walks to 6-8 hour walks is recommended.

Mental Preparation and Diet:- 

Your diet is just as crucial as your training for three peak expeditions. A balanced diet with protein, vitamins, minerals, and carbohydrates is essential for optimal physical fitness. As you ascend to high altitudes, your body will lose water due to increased heat. Therefore, maintain hydration levels by drinking at least four liters of water per day. Aside from hydration, a proper diet and sufficient water intake can also help prevent altitude sickness. So, fuel your body with the nutrients it needs for a successful climb.

One should never underestimate a high-altitude trek as it requires mental and physical preparation for a successful experience. Undoubtedly, climbing three peaks involves a long, challenging journey that may leave you exhausted, wet, muddy, and worn out. However, one must maintain a positive attitude and mental resilience to keep you moving forward.

In addition to mental strength, physical training plays a significant role in enhancing your mental stamina. To build this stamina, it's important to push yourself even when you feel you've reached your limits during your physical exercises. This approach is an excellent example that you can surpass your expectations with determination.

Besides self-motivation, having a supportive group of staff and trekking partners can provide the extra positive energy and enthusiasm needed to overcome any hurdles.

Best Months for Three Peak Climbing Expeditions

Khumbu Three Peak offers the best climbing experience during two primary climbing seasons, the Spring season, spanning from March to May, and the Autumn season, ranging from September to November. Among the two, the Spring season tends to be busier due to the significant number of major expeditions for peaks above 8000M. However, experienced climbers can still opt for winter climbing, but it presents many uncertainties.

Climbers may have to deal with unstable conditions, tea houses that may not operate, or even limited supplies in the ones that are operational. Regardless of the season you trek, pre-arrangements will be made in any season depending on the number of climbers.

Autumn Season:-

Three Peaks' autumn season is a trekker's paradise, with awe-inspiring vistas and idyllic weather. The season is particularly popular among visitors due to its stable climate. There are no extreme temperature fluctuations during these months after the monsoon season.

Beginning in mid-September and concluding in November, the season provides climbers various experiences, varying depending on their altitude. As October approaches, the climate becomes hotter in different regions of the area.

While the lower base camp is warm and pleasant. It has abundant sunlight during the day; mornings and nights are still frigid, with a chilly north wind blowing. Unfortunately, the weather rapidly deteriorates as winter approaches, with icy cold temperatures and wind chills creating an unwelcoming environment.

The trails beyond the base camp are covered in fresh snow, rendering trekking arduous and potentially hazardous, with the risk of frostbite. Consequently, trekkers who climb the mountain beyond late November must dress warmly and wear crampons to avoid injury when scaling steep glaciers.

Spring Season:-

The weather is typically mild during this time, with the mornings slightly chilly and the days pleasantly warm. There may be light snowfall and cold winds at the beginning of the season as an after-effect of winter. The weather significantly improves as time passes. At higher elevations, trekkers may experience light snow showers. Still, the lower elevations are warm and sunny, making climbing the mountain during spring relatively easy without the need to navigate slippery trails.

Between April and May, the mild weather makes hiking enjoyable for trekkers. With less snowfall and freezing wind, mountain climbing becomes easier during spring. However, the weather can be unpredictable and occasionally varies, so trekkers cannot always count on it. In the spring, the westward wind blowing towards the mountain creates white clouds that can turn into storms. In such situations, climbers may encounter difficulties. The snow melts as the temperature rises during the day, prompting trekkers to ascend the mountain in the dark.

Off-Season (Monsoon And Winter):- 

In the Three Peak region, summer brings scorching heat and strong sunlight to lower elevations, while certain areas in Khumbu experience warm temperatures and high humidity. The weather remains pleasant at higher altitudes, with temperatures still below freezing. Summer is not an ideal season for trekking, even if there is warm weather. There may be a risk of avalanches caused by rising temperatures and melting snow. Trekkers must exercise caution to avoid fatal accidents.

Compared to the monsoon season, summer still offers better weather conditions, as trekkers can avoid trekking on damp and slippery trails, which can be dangerous. During the monsoon from June to August, heavy rainfall, lightning, and tropical cyclones make it difficult for trekkers to hike. Warm, wet winds also cause snowstorms and force trekkers to retreat.

Winter is an even more challenging season for trekking. There will be unfavorable weather conditions due to heavy snowfall and high winds. Mountaineers often have to wait for improved weather conditions before attempting to summit the peak. The temperature drops below freezing point, making climbing glaciers and steep rocks almost impossible. The low barometric pressure can cause shortness of breath, and sudden weather changes can be dangerous.

Cost Of Three Peak Climbing ((Mera, Lobuche, Island)

The expense of undertaking Three peak climbing hinges on various aspects, such as the length of the itinerary, the duration of the climb, the season, and other associated considerations. Critical elements influencing the cost include food, accommodation, visas, guides, porters, permits, transportation, and more. Furthermore, outlays for travel insurance, gear, equipment, and personal expenses also significantly impact the final tally. Your spending habits and travel style also exert a significant influence on the total cost of the climb. A more luxurious trek will necessitate extra expenditure, while budget travel can significantly reduce expenses.

Providing tips to service workers such as guides and porters is also crucial, and gratuity can be offered based on your level of satisfaction. However, as a general rule, tipping guides are usually around 10% of the overall cost. So, what is the price of scaling Three peaks? Our comprehensive Three peak climbing package generally falls within the $5000-$6000 range, including meals, accommodation, transportation, permits, guides, porters, and more. However, certain expenses, such as personal expenditures, are not part of the package cost.

Although it will come at an extra expense, the traveler can cut short their journey. Upon reaching the peak of the last mountain, climbers are free to decide whether to return to the base camp or Kathmandu by helicopter. The price of the charter varies depending on factors such as the number of passengers and the destination, with rates spanning between $2000 and $4500. 

Are Guides and Porters Necessary?

Working with a registered local company and hiring guides is obligatory to obtain a permit to climb all three peaks. We strongly advise beginner to intermediate-level climbers to climb with guides for their safety and to enhance their experience fully. The expedition spans 30 days, and the climb is physically demanding. Hence the need for experienced guides is imperative.

While climbing the Island Peak route, one must navigate through crevasses and crossing ladders and encounter new challenges that may arise each climbing season. Even experienced climbers or guides who prefer to explore new routes must have a local guide accompanying them. Therefore, guide assistance is legally mandatory for climbing these peaks.

Clothing, Gears, and Boots Required:- 

Ensuring a successful climb requires careful consideration when selecting your gear. Prioritizing both comfort and quality is essential, especially regarding clothing. Adequate layering is crucial, particularly during nighttime, when temperatures may drop below -10/-15°C. Check out our peak climbing equipment blog for detailed recommendations on our preferred clothing and gear.

We offer gear rental services exclusively for our Mountain Rock Treks Traveller to make your climb successful. Our rental gear features well-maintained, top-quality equipment to ensure you're fully prepared for your climb. We highly recommend against sourcing equipment from other local providers in Nepal as their gear tends to be subpar.

One area where we suggest investing in top-quality gear is with your boots, both trekking and mountaineering varieties. With modern technological advancements, climbing shoes have vastly improved, and we encourage double-layered options like La Sport G2Sm or Scarpa Phantom. Choosing high-quality gear is a wise investment, as it can greatly impact the safety and success of your climb.

The expenses for gears and equipment in a peak climbing expedition may range between 1000 to 2000 dollars. Nonetheless, opting for second-hand mountaineering gears can be a cost-saving alternative.

Are Food and Clean Water Provided?

Tea houses usually have mineral water available for purchase. When camping in the mountains, we'll boil ice to create drinking water, which our kitchen team will collect. We advise clients to drink 4 to 6 liters of water daily to stay hydrated and acclimatized. You can use hydration tablets or a filtration bottle to ensure the water is clean and safe.

At the tea houses, meals are typically prepared for you, and during climbing days, our Sherpa team sets up kitchen tents to prepare delicious food. However, your body may not feel like eating at high altitudes, so be sure to eat enough. Pack-packed-dried meals are also available if you prefer an alternative to the hot food prepared in the tents.

To ensure a safe climb, it's essential to avoid smoking and consuming alcohol. While you may notice our experienced guides smoking or drinking, they are professionals who have adapted to the high-altitude environment, unlike adventure holiday climbers.

Our package includes three meals per day for 30 days. At Base Camp, we will provide proper dishes and utensils, but you can also bring your bowl, cup, and spork. We recommend an insulated mug for keeping your beverages hot, but we will have kitchen mugs available at Base Camp. 


Kathmandu offers a range of accommodation options, from affordable tourist hotels to luxurious five-star resorts. Throughout the trek, tea houses and lodges are available for lodging, except during the climbing period when tent camps are set up. Tea houses will be provided wherever possible, and camping accommodations will be provided in areas where tea houses are unavailable. Accommodation can be customized to your preferences, with single, double, triple, or twin-sharing options.

Will I Need Insurance and Helicopter Service? 

Although we hope that it never occurs, if you experience an injury while engaging in mountain climbing, it's crucial to ensure that your travel insurance policy offers medical coverage. Most typical travel insurance policies do not cover medical expenses linked with extreme sports like mountain climbing. By having medical coverage, you can receive the necessary medical attention regardless of your location on the trip, enabling you to focus on recovery rather than worrying about your financial situation if an accident occurs during your climbing expedition.

Suppose you face a situation where you have to depart from the country due to severe weather or political instability while on your adventure. In that case, it's essential to have evacuation coverage to ensure your safety and peace of mind. The last thing you would want to worry about during an emergency is the cost of evacuation. Even if you're not engaging in extreme sports, having evacuation coverage is crucial, particularly if you're going on an outdoor trip. If you don't have insurance coverage, fret not, as we have covered you with our helicopter service that caters to your location. Our helicopter service is available for private and group bookings at reasonable rates.

Skiing From Mera Peak To Base Camp:- 

For a one-of-a-kind experience in Nepal, consider skiing from the peak to the base camp at an extra cost. Our Ski Mera Peak Nepal expedition is a dream come true, and you don't have to be an expert skier to participate. This adventure is designed for travelers who want to share something extraordinary. Our expert team will guide you on a trek to the summit of Mera Peak, located in the Everest region of Nepal. The uninterrupted views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Cho Oyu are indescribable. You'll be able to take photos before clicking in and beginning the most thrilling 1500m (vertical) ski descent on the planet. 


  • Q1. Which route will Mountain Rock Treks take?

    As for Mera Peak, it's the tallest trekking peak in the Himalayas but only requires a little technical climbing. Our ascent will follow the mountain's southeast ridge. Island Peak is a well-known and moderately technical peak in the Khumbu area. Our route will be the south route, the only current path to the top of Island Peak. We'll take the southeast ridge route to reach the summit of Lobuche East, another semi-technical peak in the Khumbu Valley.

  • Usually, a regular climbing day involves around 6 hours of climbing per peak. The days when the summit is attempted are the longest because we must descend to the nearest place or base camp.

  • It's a 6000M peak climbing experience ideal for novice climbers who want a challenging expedition. To help you choose if this is the right adventure, our grading system can assess your experience level and determine the right time to embark on a trip like this. If you still need clarification, feel free to reach our team. We'll assist you in figuring out where you stand in terms of experience and assist you in selecting the perfect adventure.

  • This climbing trip is designed for individuals aged 18 and above who are interested in a climb suitable for beginners or intermediate experience levels.

  • Absolutely! We highly recommend contacting individuals you have adventures with or met on previous expeditions. You may also want to consider inviting someone who shares your passion for challenges or who you think would appreciate the experience of this incredible climb.

  • We would love to facilitate a private expedition for you and your companions, provided it falls within the appropriate season. Additional fees will be incurred since we must make arrangements separately for the private climb. Please don't hesitate to contact our team to inquire about organizing private trips or expeditions.

  • The lodges or tea houses we provide during our trekking expeditions are authentic Sherpa tea houses that offer a unique cultural experience. We have established good relationships with the lodge owners and guarantee that our guests will stay comfortable. Private rooms can be arranged for an additional fee, but our standard trips are based on shared accommodations, typically twin-share or sometimes triple-share. You will share a tent with one or two climbers above the mountain.  

  • No, all our expeditions are all-inclusive and cover the cost of meals. This includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a variety of hot and cold drinks during trekking and expedition days. 

  • While staying in tea houses during your trekking days, you can expect a variety of meals prepared according to your preferences from the menu. The options are plentiful, from the famous Nepali rice and lentils (Dal bhat) dish to pasta, soups, pizza, mashed potatoes, and dumplings. However, we provide cooked and packed/canned food supplies from Kathmandu during camping days. Please note that the options for cooked food are limited during camping days. You will mostly eat rice, lentils, vegetables, and pasta as the primary choices. 

  • Alternatively, bottled water is widely available, and boiled water can be obtained at the lodges. Another option is to bring your water treatment kit or filtered water bottle, such as a Lifestraw filtered bottle.
