2021 Mera team has arrived!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones!

Our very excellent international mountaineering team has flown into Kathmandu and as fortune would have it, all their climbing gear arrived with them. Now that’s what we call A Great Start. We’ve assembled at the world famous Yak & Yeti Hotel where generations of exceptional climbers have launched audacious Himalayan ascents. We hope to do the same.

The gear and provisions for our trek and climb have been organized, packed up and sent to Lukla early this morning, where it will be waiting for us when we arrive there tomorrow. We also had time to tour the city and learn a bit about its fascinating culture and history.

We got to know each other better at a team dinner this evening, where we bonded over momos and “colorful” stories of some of our previous expeditions. We’re lucky to have a great group and are really looking forward to flying up to Lukla at the crack of dawn tomorrow.

All our best,
Carole and Vern Tejas
