Highlights

 
     

    In the mighty Himalayas mountain range, there are a number of amazing peaks an enthusiastic climber can choose from. And each peak consists of its own unforgettable adventure. Thus making this amazing mountain range a literal field of dreams. And on this 18 day journey, one such dream is the summit of the gorgeous Mera Peak (6,476m).

    While not the highest peak in the Himalayas, nor the most difficult, the Mera Peak is nonetheless a fantastic option for climbers who are not yet experts, but still want to conquer a grand mountain. However, while the mountain is one of the more accessible peaks in Nepal, it is still a Himalayan peak, so there will still be challenges. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition. Furthermore, participants should also have some previous mountaineering experience as well.

    The trip will begin in the city of Kathmandu, where you will get to spend a few days exploring. After that, you will get to enjoy the short, but scenic, and very famous flight to Lukla. After that, we will trek through various passes and villages from Kote (4,095m) to Khare (5,045m) until we reach the Mera Peak. The summit climb will have some tough spots, but I will see to it you make the ascent safely. And from the top of this incredible mountain you will be able to see the glory of the Himalayas, as you will receive views of several of its most renowned peaks, including Mount Everest (8.848m)!

    Climbing any of the peaks in the Himalayas is an experience you simply cannot forget. And the Mera Peak is no different. So if you would like to join me on this 18 day trip, please send me a request.

    Would you like to join me to the summit of another mighty peak? If you do, let me guide you to the summit of Lenin Peak in Kyrgyzstan on this 21 adventure.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I was born in Kranj (Slovenia), and since I was a child the mountains have been my passion. I graduated in Sports at Ljubljana University and started an alpine career as a member of the Kranj Alpine Club.

    In 1977, I climbed my first eight-thousander: it was a new route on Gasherbrum I. Some years later, a partner and I became the first Slovenians to ascend Mt Everest, also on a new route.

    In fact, I’ve been at the top of Everest twice. The second time, I reached the summit with my wife Marija, and we were the first married couple achieving that.

    Throughout my alpine career, I took part and even lead more than 20 expeditions in the Nepalese Himalayas. There, I climbed more than six peaks over eight thousand meters: two of them on new routes and three using pure alpine style. I also climbed in Patagonia, Pamir, USA, Caucasus and Scotland.

    However, my major success was climbing a new route on Kangchenjunga, in alpine style and together with climber Marko Prezelj. After this, we won the prestigious mountaineering award Piolet d’Or.

    I am a mountain guide since 1982 and I obtained my IFMGA license in 1997. I am also an instructor at the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association (SMGA).

    I still live in Kranj with my wife and the youngest of our three children.

    Andrej is not extremely talkative but everything he said was gold. I hope to learn more from him, and it would be a great gift to humanity if he wrote some of his little stories in a little book.

    We had an amazing time. Andrej is such a good guide, he has so much experience, we learnt a lot from him! We also felt completely safe even on those parts of the route which were a bit more difficult. The route itself is great for aspiring climbers. We had no climbing experience and felt it was perfect - you do climb the whole of the North face and there is almost no walking so you definitely get a good taste of alpine climbing but it is not too technical. It took us a long time, longer than expected, and we ended up staying in a mountain hut overnight and walking back the next day. Definitely do it but if you want to go the summit it might be better to book the two day trip as it a very long climb indeed (it took us 15 hours to get to the summit) - but of course totally worth it and the views are spectacular!
