    Come and join me for an amazing 20-day trek to the top of the famous Mera Peak (6,476m) in Nepal.

    Located in the Himalayas, Mera Peak is considered one of the highest permitted trekking peaks in Nepal. The view from the summit of this majestic peak is nothing short of incredible. You will be able to see at least five 8,000 meter plus peaks, including Cho Oyu (8,188m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,485m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m), and Mount Everest (8,848m). This makes this trek an absolute must for anybody wishing to see our planet’s greatest peaks!

    Over the course of this trek, you will pass through untouched forests and glacial lakes, walk through beautiful valleys and see the aforementioned peaks, as well as others such as Chamlang (7,321m). Every moment of every day will be an adventure all on its own.

    When we finally reach the Mera Peak Base Camp, you will also have the chance to undergo a 3-day glacier course. We will go over several important items. We’ll cover rope techniques, cramponing on ice, snow and ice anchorage, glacier exploration, crevasse rescue, and also climbing. All of these skills are very important for the climb ahead because we will be climbing through steep rock, snow and ice. Hence, this brief course is crucial to help you reach the summit safely.

    So let me guide you on this breathtaking journey to one of the highest trekking peaks in the world. Let me guide you to a summit where you will get to see what can only be described as the Himalayas Trophy Case. Where Earth’s greatest mountain peaks are displayed in all of their glory. Let me guide you to the top of the Mera Peak!

    And if you think you are ready for the greatest challenge, join me on the ascent to the summit of the crown jewel of the Himalayas! Want to climb Mount Everest via the south route? Then join me here.

    What People are Saying about Jyamchang Bhote

     

    After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam\'s steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn\'s commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.

    Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s\'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu\'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l\'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l\'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.

    As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium
