Mera Peak Climbing

17 Days from $ 2299

Trip Overview

“Climbing is the closest some of us come to flying.”

Mera Peak (6,476m), the highest trekking peak of Nepal is located in Mahalangur Himalayas in Solukhumbu district of Nepal. Mera Peak Climbing is a great choice for those experienced trekkers who would like a straightforward introduction to peak climbing. The actual peak climbing begins after the end of a week-long trekking through picturesque villages and forests, acclimatization program and pre-climb training. Reaching to the summit of Mera Peak is an unforgettable experience and the Himalayan vista from there is simply breathtaking. From the summit, you can enjoy awe-inspiring views of five spectacular eight-thousanders including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m) and Cho Oyu (8,201m) as well as other peaks below 8,000m.

Join our Mera Peak Climbing package to achieve exhilarating trekking and mountaineering experience in the Himalayas. The trip initiates in Kathmandu valley and after making necessary preparations, we fly to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. The trekking begins from Lukla towards Khare crossing few passes and passing through lush forests and local settlements. We have acclimatization program and pre-climb training at Khare before we begin mountaineering. We climb enthusiastically and reach the summit of Mera Peak (6,461m) via Mera High Camp (5,780m). After admiring the view from the summit and having a great time there, we descend down to Khare, cross Zatrwa la pass to reach Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu from where you can depart for your onward destination. There are actually two known summits of Mera Peak: Mera Central and Mera North. We operate Mera Peak Expedition to the summit Mera Central (6,461m), though the highest summit is Mera North (6,476m) due to huge crevasses and glacial changes occurring in the route to Mera North.

Although the prior experience of mountaineering is not mandatory to Mera Peak Climbing, this trip is challenging and quite demanding. A good cardiovascular fitness is a must and you should learn basic technical aspects of climbing like using ice axe and crampon before climbing Mera Peak. Previous experience of climbing is highly beneficial. Remember us for Mera Peak Expedition and let us turn you into a climber by providing basic technical skills of climbing from our licensed and experienced English-speaking veteran climbing guide.
