Standing tall within the Himalaya range, Mera Peak’s summit is 6,497m high – a tough, and mighty ‘trekking’ peak which is an ideal ‘next step’ if you’ve tackled Kilimanjaro or Everest Base Camp. On the morning of the 22nd October 2022 – our team successfully reached the summit in the early hours just as the sun rose.
After a 2 year absence, our popular Saharan Challenge made a triumphant return last week. 150 runners and trekkers made their way to Morocco with our team, to take on 2 marathons over 2 days in the world’s largest desert!

We are so very excited to finally see our 1st team of trekkers back in Nepal, and out along the Everest Base Camp trail. Our team have reached the small Sherpa village of Dingboche, which sits at an altitude of 4,410m, all are in good spirits & feeling fit to keep pushing forward.
This week we’ve seen our intrepid group of Jordan Trekkers set out across the desert headed to Petra & Wadi Rum – covering over 15km a day and camping under the stars across various camps in the desert.
