We both are Canadians so it is obvious that we love hills and mountains. Furthermore, we decided that we will visit Nepal for our honeymoon after marriage. Then we decided we would do Mera Peak as it is a very easy expedition. Then after we arrived at Kathmandu the airport representative who was also a valley guide gave us a tour of the Kathmandu Valley tour on our first day of the Expedition. We were very happy that we got to know a lot about the Nepali culture and its history. Following days we followed the easiest itinerary presented to us by the members of Great Adventure Treks and Expedition. They said that we did a good job selecting our honeymoon tour/climb in the Mera Peak Climbing. The tea houses, lodges, and hotels were very comfortable and secure. Similarly, while doing the Mera Peak Climbing we learn a lot about different cultures and traditions about Nepal. We also saw the beauty of Nepal's landscape. We don't know if we choose some other travel company then we would have this much fun and excitement. Altogether, our honeymoon was wonderful because of the Great Adventure Treks and Expedition. We had a lifelong memory while traveling with Great Adventure Treks and Expeditions
