    Perfect

    Thanks to the Mountain Monarch staff for a perfect trip to the summit of Mera. I highly recommend MM, and my next trip to the Himalayas will surely be with Pradip and the team. Every detail was meticulously planned and worked out perfectly. Climbing boots, down jackets, and sleeping bags, all of good quality, were provided as part of the package. This made it possible for us to go on this adventure without the hassle and expense of costly equipment. I appreciate the policy of one porter to one trekker, which provides decent working conditions for the porters and has no extra cost for us compared to other companies. (Normally, companies only have one porter for every two trekkers)Special thanks to Dawa, our Sherpa guide, who not only was an excellent guide providing us with all needed mountaineering guidance but also shared his vast knowledge about local culture, history, and vegetation.

    Climbed Mera at the age of 70 with Mountain Monarch

    In April 2022, I joined a group with Mountain Monarch going to Mera Peak with four other independent trekkers. The owner Pradip had assembled an excellent crew of guides and porters for our adventure journey above 6000 meters. Everyone went out of their way to ensure the safety of each participant. Everything was well planned from Kathmandu to Kathmandu, with nothing to worry about. All equipment, down jackets, sleeping bags, high altitude boots, and crampons were of excellent quality and included in the price; a hassle-free adventure. Our guide Nima and assistant, Pasan, were proficient in guiding us up to the top and safely back down. I was provided excellent support in helping me make it to the summit at the age of 70 years. In addition, my guide sometimes assisted me in completing the trek and climb. I would definitely recommend MM to anyone planning a trip to Nepal. I know my next tour to Nepal will be with them.
