Highlights

  • Reach the summit of the great Mera Peak and view other giants of the Himalayas.

Description

For 27 days we would like to guide you on an adventure you will never forget. We would like to guide you to the top of the incredible Mera Peak (6,476m). From the summit of this great peak, you will get to see the mammoths of the Himalayas, from Mount Everest (8,848m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m) to Llotse (8,516m) and Makalu (8,481m).

This expedition is not just about the summit of the Mera Peak however. This trip is also about teaching you several of the skills needed to reach not just that summit, but future summits as well. Several days, in different, wonderful locations that include Sibuje and Tangnang, will be dedicated to training. You will learn ice climbing and glacier travelling techniques. And you will learn about how to deal with cold related illnesses, rope handling, crevasse rescue and much more. Furthermore, the time spent training in these locations will also help you get properly acclimatized, which is crucial when scaling a peak as enormous as the Mera Peak.

Throughout the trek, we will be visiting several cities, towns and villages. This will give you the chance to not just get a glimpse of, but to spend time in local Nepal. Thus giving you an opportunity to learn about and enjoy the wonderful culture of Nepal directly from its own people and places.

Due to the arduousness of the trip, and the length of it, participants on this trip must be in good physical condition.

Journeying to the summit of the Mera Peak is an adventure you will never forget. And it would be my pleasure to guide you there. If you would like to be a part of it, just send us a request.

We also lead a 17 day expedition to the base camp of Mount Everest as well.

After speaking with Sandeep at Miyar, we actually opted for a different trip, a 4-day backpacking trip to the High Divide Loop at Olympic National Park. Our guide was amazing and we had a phenomenal time. I'm very thankful for Sandeep's experience and suggestion as I think the Olympic trip was exactly the right trip for us! Communication leading up to the trip left a lot of room for improvement, but everything fell into place at the last minute. Our guide, Chloe, couldn't have been better for my family if I'd handpicked a guide myself. She was knowledgeable, encouraging, supportive, and just an all around genuine human being. I would recommend her anytime!

Myself and my daughter climbed Mt. Baker with Miyar Adventures via Easton Glacier route, Simon was our guide. The whole experience was epic in many ways. Simon's knowledge is excellent, I would trust him 100% in any situations that may come up on the mountain. We learned a lot and it was fun. The overall organization from Miyar was great (including informational emails from Jake and communication with Sandeep). Great company that I would choose again in a heartbeat.

Sandeep and his wife, Jasmine, are lovely guides! We did a 1 day intro to rock climbing excursion with them and we had a great time! They communicated well and provided us with a fun and safe day of climbing. They chose routes based on our experience and taught us a lot. I highly recommend hiring Miyar Adventures. We have already shared their info with friends and family.

Whole group summited! Huge thanks to the guides for helping us all get there! It's certainly not an easy climb, but the entire experience was fantastic. Especially loved the snow skills training on the second day. Lots of fun was had practicing the self arrest & team arrest. The team arrest training was a huge confidence builder to see that I wasn’t going to take the entire team down if I fell The lead guide (Glen) was fabulous. You can tell he really enjoys sharing his passion for the outdoors with the guests on his trip. Folks in the store are super helpful as well. Sandeep (owner) is great, and have talked with him in the store & via email several times to get advice. Great pre-trip guidance (including a meeting the night before the climb to make sure you have all the gear you need & nothing you don’t), and you can tell how much Sandeep cares about making sure every guest has a great experience. Lots of reasonably priced gear rental options available here as well if you aren’t sure if mountaineering is for you. Considering a Kili trip while I’m still in good hiking shape, and they’ll be the first place I look at if I decide to book.

I took the Mountaineering skills course (5 days) in Baker. I learned so much about Glacier travel, rope management, crevasse rescue, and much more! Glen, our guide was awesome and highly knowledgeable. We also got to summit Mt. Baker during the course which was the most magical part! I HIGHLY recommend them!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. I had the very best experience climbing Mount Baker with Miyar Adventures. Coordination was not the easiest with Covid but they were very communicative throughout the process. This was my first roped travel experience and I felt that Miyar prepared me very well with gear lists and videos before the trip and with hands on training the day before our summit. Everyone was very courteous when it came to masks and social distancing. When we lost our guide just a couple days before due to cold symptoms (he took precautions and got a Covid test right away but the results window may have impacted our trip - it ended up being negative thankfully) the owner, Sandeep, stepped in to guide us! Sandeep made sure we were all safe and had a great time. Our team all summited successfully! I would definitely recommend this guide company and will be booking with them again in the future!

Five days of awesome is all I can say. Glen our instructor and guide was extremely knowledgeable. I had previous glacier mountaineering experience and his techniques were so much more efficient than what I had been taught. To top it off we had a great summit day.

Overall, an absolutely incredible experience and memories that will last for a long time. For someone who had never done a glacier climb, this was an amazing experience. First time being roped up and getting to stare into the belly of the beast (a crevasse) was an unforgettable experience. Our guides Tyler and Chris were extremely knowledgeable. Throughout our trip they kept sharing interesting anecdotes and tips about climbing. Once we reached basecamp, they took us out in the snow to review cramponing, snow skills and how to wear a harness and attach yourselves to a rope. This was supposed to be a 3 day climb, but due to inclement weather it became a 2 day climb. We lucked out with the weather clearing from first day afternoon until second day evening. On the second day we set out with an alpine start at 2 am. At the summit, the views were absolutely breathtaking - by far the prettiest mountaintop I had seen. We were absolutely surrounded by mountain peaks on every side. We got to spend a nice 40 minutes at the top and hoofed it back to the trailhead by 5 pm. We thought we were done, but no - at the coffee break our guides told us we had paid for 3 days - so what did we want to do on the third day? They took us to a rock-climbing structure and taught us the basics of crevasse rescue and answered a whole bunch of mountaineering questions (we had a LOT). Absolutely unexpected and this third day was the cherry on the top.

This was an absolutely amazing experience for me. I had never climbed a glaciated mountain before, and was completely new to all the skills and equipment required for such a venture. Our guides Chris and Sandeep were super knowledgeable and consistently shared a lot of information with us. We learned how to wear a harness, tie ourselves to a rope, rope team safety, and basic snow skills. We started for the summit around 2:30am and reached the top in about 6 hours. We lucked out weather wise as it was sunny and not windy at all. The view at the top was breathtaking to say the least! Our guides made us feel safe and gave lots of tips on improving our techniques during the climb, so it was a great learning experience. Would definitely do another climb with them again!

This was an exceptional 5 days Mountaineering Skills Course on Mt Baker and Glenn was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable. there was so much info that he was able to explain so well and not only the skills and knowledge but also the science behind why. From meteorology to glaciology to good humour. All around an absolutely excellent Experience. I very rarely write reviews but this was that good that it deserved it

Took the 5 days Mountaineering course on Mt Baker with Miyar. Sandeep is a super friendly person and he was able to set this course up for is on very short notice. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The guides were super friendly and helpful. I feel more confident on glaciers now that I know glacier travel and crevasse rescue! Would recommend it to anyone interested in getting into mountaineering.

We are a Swedish family of five, of which 3 adult children, who had a truly magical adventure with Miyar Adventures on Mt Baker. Our guide Anthony was absolutely perfect, and took us safely up and down the mountain - thank you so much! Sandeep kept in touch with us and made sure we were safe. A tough and exciting adventure that we will never forget. We are totally satisfied with Miyar Adventures, they were very responsive to our wishes and we recommend anyone who wants an adventure beyond the usual to hire them.

I took a 5-day Mountaineering course on Mt. Baker and I would recommend it to anybody who has ever had any interest in climbing mountains! The guides were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We spent our time learning skills that can save our lives and hanging out with some great people. We even climbed to the summit to put all the skills together!

My wife and I had decided to summit Mt Baker last year. We chose Miyar Adventures for our trip. Booking the trip was really seamless. Sandeep helped us through our scheduling. Closer to the climb, the Miyar staff sent out emails ensuring we were aware of what was expected. We were provided all information on what gear would be needed. Our guides Jonah, Simon, Ryan, and Matt were great They ensured the entire group was well taken care of in the wilderness. We were always made aware of things to be expected on the climb and we felt safe. We went through some beginner snow school training. It helped us learn basic skills of how to walk on the glacier, how to climb steep sections, and most importantly how to stay safe and self-arrest. The summit day was a breeze! It's an experience that we'll cherish for a lifetime. We're going to keep in touch with Miyar Adventures and plan another trip soon!

I summited Mt Baker in June with Miyar adventures. The experience was wonderful and one of the best for me. I recently started climbing and I am so glad that I could do MT Baker. I know for a fact that it would not been possible without Miyar adventures. I rented and bought all the necessary gears from Miyar. The owner Sandeep and his staff are very courteous and knowledgeable. They were vey patient with me, I had lot of question and they helped answered to my satisfaction. At MT Baker the guides provided appropriate direction and managed the pace so each member of our group was able to summit. Glen and Tylor are too exceptional guides in Miyar teams with their help and leadership we all were able to summit and safely come back. If you are new or regular hiker if you are looking for company which does right by their customer I would go with Miyar adventures. I hope to do some more trips with Miyar in the future.

I recently went on a Baker climb with Miyar Adventures and I should say that they organized the trip pretty well and kept us on schedule throughout the trip. Glen helped us with gear picks, glacier travel skills and not to mention taught us few important knots, and gave a demonstration of the crevasse rescue system. Although it's pretty tough to remember all from the demo; I could certainly understand the mechanism of it. Glen and Sandeep showed their commitment to customer service to not only guide us on the climb but teach us few worthwhile skills. I would recommend them for their friendly nature with great guide service being provided.
