I had been to Nepal so many times this was my 5th time. This time along with my longtime friend we planned to Have Mera Peak trek and through some online research we came to Nepal Hiking Adventure, a Nepal based travel agency. The overall treks were full of adventure and an exciting journey with a wonderful guide. The manager and team were very flexible and humble. I would recommend others to have Mera Peak trek once in a lifetime and Nepal Everest base camp.
