Mera Peak Climbing

Highest Permitted Trekking Peak

Mera Peak Climbing

US$2550

per person

Mera Peak Climbing is the most popular as well as the highest permitted trekking peak and Mera Peak Climbing lies to the south of Everest. The beautiful peak in a sense that the trail leading to the peak consists of the two valleys Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. We choose the best season and have made the best itinerary for Mera Peak Climbing.

Overview

Mera peak is one of the most sought-after trekking peaks in Nepal. Mera peak lies at the altitude of 6461m above sea level. From the peak, mountaineers can view the amazing Himalayas that appear right in front of the eyes. Mera peak passes via culturally stimulating valleys with remote picturesque villages and forests. Mera Peak is Nepal’s highest trekking peak and lies in the Khumbu region. Mera peak climbing will take around one week with sufficient acclimatization packages that will yield the best view of the panoramic mountain range. Even though Mera peak is at high altitude, moderate mountaineering experience, a good level of fitness and a keen sense of adventure make the expedition straightforward.

Trip highlights

Mera peak climbing begins with an exciting flight to Lukla, ranked number one in the world’s most dangerous airport lists. The trail passes through Paanch Pokhari, which is another delightful place to be at. The high camp is set at 5800m so that the summit day is shortened and enough acclimatization is achieved. Mera high camp provides a breathtaking panoramic view and consists of peaks known globally. Five spectacular 8000m peaks are visible. To name them, Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8210m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), and Kanchenjunga (8586m) Mountain. Trekkers can experience the Zatrwa Pass if they prefer to go the extra mile and feel the beauty of the Himalayas up close and personal.

Safety tips

Mera peak poses a little technical difficulty because of its altitude that crosses 6000m. The technical requirement is very basic and does not demand much of mountaineering tools. It is an exhausting climb if trekkers do not acclimatize at the high camp sufficiently. Safety and mountaineering gears are necessary to have while climbing Mera Peak. Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) or oxygen cylinder provides sufficient air to breathe in during the time of need. A comprehensive medical kit and a satellite phone for communication will facilitate the rescue team in case of any emergencies. The toughest part of the climb consists of a slope of almost 40 degrees of snow/ice. Prior mountaineering experience will help the climbers to lead the team in such harsh situations.

Accommodation

Teahouses are available throughout the trek to high camp, which is very warm and comforting. All season sleeping bags along with the tent is also an alternative to stargazers who would love to stare into infinity at nights. Some teahouses do not allow single room accommodation during the summit season. These teahouses serve Nepalese, Tibetan, Indian and the more common continental cuisines. The Sherpa community who exhibit the richness and diversity within the culture conducts welcome and farewell programs.
