World famous mountain Everest (Sagarmatha) Base Camp trek is one of the best trek in the world because of more than two thousand different mountains and peaks with panoramic view, people and there society, there culture, wild life, the largest glacier in the world and the various Everest Trekking routes in the Khumbu, including the immortal Everest Base Camp trek, allow us to appreciate this natural wonder and marvel at the beauty of the region. The friendliness of the Nepalese people make Nepal one of the most exciting mountain nations for trekking, along with the spectacular scenery en-route. So much more than a sight-seeing holiday, taking an Everest Base Camp trek, or one of its alternatives, will provide you with an experience you will not forget in your lifetime.
Upper Dolpo being one of the remotest, poorest and backward regions in whole of Nepal with its difficult terrains and extreme cold weather has been overlooked despite being a land of tourist potential and other opportunities. There are no motor able roads or airport in upper Dolpo, except the airport near district headquarter, Dunia which is several days journey from upper Dolpo. The people of upper Dolpo are deprived of fundamental rights of good education, basic medical facilities, and others such as postal and electricity services. The death toll cause by lack of basic medical facilities is quite alarming. The existing schools in upper Dolpo have only primary levels and health posts are functional only for a brief summer season. Recently some western NGOs have supported in opening up schools and health posts but due to the insurgency going on in Nepal, these NGOs are being apprehensive of fully implementing further programs. Therefore, some of the NGOs are being inconsistent in supporting their programs in upper Dolpo.
The Mera Expedition is a high-altitude trek and climb and participants need to be fit and conversant with the use of an ice-axe and crampons. Instruction in the use of these will be given at our base camp near the Mera La if required. In good conditions it is possible for a fit party to reach the summit and return to base camp in one day. It is normal, however, to establish a high-camp at 19,000ft/5,800m on the Mera Glacier, in order to shorten the summit day. This is a rewarding experience as it provides glorious views of Nepal and a vista that takes in Kangchenjunga and Makalu to the east and Everest appearing over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north. To the west stand the spires of Ama Dablam and Kang Taiga and in the distance is the mighty bastion of Cho Oyu. This is a fine panorama of many of the world's highest peaks.
Dogs had a blast trying out their new backpacks. The trails were mediocre. All in all, worthy of a visit if nearby, but nothing to travel out of your way to.
