Amazing Mera peak climbing in Spring season. 
My 4th time to Nepal because of the great country for hiking lovers. Previously I did trekking only but that time I like to climbing the less technical Climbing peak, Mera. With our Nepali expert trekking guide and climbing guide its impossible. Climbing guide taking care and helped me a lot without him I cannot succeed to reach Mera summit. The situation is very windy due to bad weather but my climbing guide Chongba and team take care and encourage me to success my trip. Thanks, Mission Himalaya and Birendra for your great care and arrangement.
