There are three summits of Mera Peak- Mera Central (6,461 m), Mera North (6,476 m), and Mera South (6,065 m). During the Mera Peak climbing, you will summit the Mera North, following the Mera La pass and Mera Glacier. The journey begins with a thrilling Lukla flight and a multiple-day trek via remote mountain villages. Before reaching the summit of Mera Peak, you will spend two nights at the Mera Peak Base Camp (Khare) and one night at Mera Peak High Camp. 

Mera Peak climbing is the best introduction to mountaineering in the Himalayas. It is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Trekking peaks are ideal for beginner climbers because there are few to zero technical sections on these peaks. You will get to experience being above 6,000 meters from sea level, get your hands-on climbing skills, and get exposure to the environment mountaineers face while climbing in the Himalayas. 

What to expect during the Mera Peak climbing?

Mera Peak climbing is a 17 days adventurous journey in the eastern Himalayas of Nepal. The trek starts from Lukla, but instead of following the mainstream EBC trail, you will trek on the different side of the region that leads to Makalu Barun National Park. This part of the Khumbu region is serene and offbeat, with no crowd. 

The trail goes through rhododendron forests and villages like Lukla, Paiya, Pangkoma, Ningsow, Chetrakhola, Kothe, Thangnak, and Thuli Kharka. The Makalu Barun National Park starts from Ningsow. It is home to many flora and fauna, including exotic wildlife like Himalayan black bears, red pandas, snow leopards, and various species of birds and butterflies.

Along the trail, you will witness diverse landscapes and mountain vistas. Some notable mountains are Everest (8,849 m), Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Kangtega (6,782 m), Nuptse(7,861 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), etc.

Likewise, along the Mera Peak trail, meet with many communities, including Sherpas. The locals are welcoming and friendly. Most of them understand and speak English to some extent. You will have a good time interacting with them. Get to see their lifestyle and culture. 

Similarly, explore stupas, chortens, and monasteries along the trail. Lungsumgba Gompa is one of the main monasteries in this part of the Khumbu region. The trail is off-the-beaten mostly with many steep ascents and descents. Be careful and follow the lead of your guide.

    Useful InformationGood to Know

    Mera Peak climbing difficulty 

    Mera Peak climbing is physically very demanding. The journey begins with trekking for multiple days following an offbeat route via Makalu Barun National Park. You will trek through the isolated Kharkas and cross the steep moraines of Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka. 

    Likewise, if we have to take the Mera Peak climbing part into consideration, then it is not a technical mountain. Unlike the other trekking peaks- Island and Lobuche, the Mera Peak is much more manageable even if it is higher than them. 

    The high altitude, harsh Himalayan environment, and exposure to the sun, cold, and wind make climbing Mera Peak extremely physically demanding. Following a glacial route, you will climb to the summit. The slopes do not exceed more than 30 degrees. 

    Our crew will fix the climbing route with ropes. You will use it to climb up and down. Overall, in terms of the mountaineering vocabulary, Mera Peak is considered Alpine PD. It is a perfect peak for beginner climbers and does not require previous climbing experience.

    Altitude sickness: acclimatization plan

    Mera Peak climbing takes you over 6,000 meters from sea level. Altitude sickness is a huge risk during the expedition. Therefore, we have made sure you get enough acclimatization time before you reach Khare (the base camp). 

    From Lukla to Khare, you will trek for seven days. The altitude gradually increases during trekking duration, providing you ample opportunity to adjust to the elevation. In Khare, you will spend two nights. During the acclimatization day, we go on a hiking rotation. 

    Likewise, before pushing towards the Mera Peak summit, you will also spend a night at Mera Peak High Camp. This is the perfect Mera Peak climbing itinerary to avoid altitude sickness. In case you see minor symptoms, the guide will help you subside it. 

    Be aware of these symptoms of altitude sickness- shortness of breath, vomiting, headache, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, etc. Similarly, below are some tips to avoid altitude sickness during Mera Peak climbing:

    • Take regular breaks during training and maintain your pace
    • Listen to your body and inform your guide if you feel any discomfort
    • Drink lots of water daily to keep yourself hydrated
    • Consuming alcohol and smoking is strictly prohibited

    What is the best time to do the Mera Peak climbing?

    The best time to do the Mera Peak climbing in Nepal is autumn (October to November) and spring (March to early May). Our Mera Peak Climbing 2024 spring/autumn bookings are open, so book your seat early. 

    The location of Mera Peak results in unpredictable weather throughout the year. For a high success rate, you have to climb this peak in spring and autumn. These seasons have comparatively stable weather and a mild climate, which makes trekking and climbing both excellent. 

    The mountain views are clear in spring and autumn, along with low precipitation. The lower part of the trail is lush and bloomed with seasonal flowers. Likewise, there are long daylight hours, low humidity, and other weather hazards in these seasons. 

    If you want to climb Mera Peak in the off-season summer/monsoon (June to August) and winter (December to February), you have to understand that the weather is not favorable during these times of the year. So, there can be delays and cancellations. 

    How is accommodation during the Mera Peak climbing?

    You will spend the nights in a three-star hotel in Kathmandu, tea houses during the trek, and an alpine tent at the Mera High Camp. You will have all the modern facilities in the hotel in Kathmandu. Likewise, the tea houses along the Mera Peak trek route are runned by locals. 

    The tea house is a simple kind of accommodation. The rooms are twin-shared with clean beds and blankets. The washrooms are generally common. There are charging and hot shower facilities in many tea houses, but it will cost you a few extra bucks. 

    WiFi is available in the villages at lower altitudes but also costs a few extra bucks. We recommend you get a Nepali tourist sim and use data for the internet. Note that the Mera Peak trail is very remote and isolated, so you may not get a network in most of the places. 

    At the high camp, we will provide all the tents and other essentials. Our team will set up the tents and take care of all the meals. All climbers will get separate sleeping tents and shared dining/washroom tents. We use sturdy alpine tents and electric blankets. 

    *Note: Single rooms are only available at prior notice, and it may cost you a little extra money. Likewise, WiFi, hot showers, and charging expenses are not covered in our Mera Peak climbing cost. So, you have to make a daily budget to spend during the trek. 

    Meals during the Mera Peak climbing

    Our Mera Peak climbing package covers three meals a day during trekking/climbing. In Kathmandu, you get all breakfast and two complimentary dinners. You will enjoy flavorful and nutritious Nepali dishes along with many other cuisines. 

    The tea house menu ranges from the famous dal bhat and momos to thukpa, Tibetan bread, stews, noodles, rice and curries, chapati, etc. In selected places along the trail, you may also get pizza, burgers, pasta, steak, sandwiches, etc. The breakfast menu is also nice, with a variety of teas and coffees. 

    Likewise, at the Mera Peak Base Camp (Khare) and Mera Peak High Camp, our team will curate delicious meals for you. As climbing requires high energy, the meals will be designed to provide you with needed nutrients and power. Veg and non-veg options are available. 

    If you have any allergies or special requirements, inform us during booking. During your time in Kathmandu, we highly recommend you try the Nepali delicacies like sekuwa, choyla, sukuti, titaura, sel roti, gundruk, tama, chatamari, taas, etc. 

    Travel insurance for Mera Peak climbing

    To join Mera Peak climbing, you have to buy travel insurance, which covers helicopter evacuation and medical bills. As access to medical care is very limited during this expedition, travel insurance is a must in case of emergency. It allows you to immediately receive rescue and medical treatment if you get sick or injured during the journey. 

    There is special travel insurance for climbing peaks and mountains in the Himalayas. Make sure your travel insurance is one of them. Note that not all travel insurance covers high-altitude activities like peak climbing, so double-check all the facts with your travel insurance provider. 

    Guide and porter during the Mera Peak climbing

    Our Mera Peak climbing guides are professional mountaineers who have climbed this peak and many other mountains in the Himalayas. They will accompany you from the start to the end of the trek and make sure you are safe. 

    Our mountain guides and porters support will make the climbing hassle-free for you. They will boost your confidence and make the overall journey extremely delightful. At the base camp, you will get pre-climbing training from the lead guide. 

    Likewise, the guides will also fix the climbing routes with rope. Similarly, the porters will carry the heavy duffel bags and set the tents at the high camp. They will also take care of the meals. 

    Guide and porters are an essential part of our Mera Peak climbing expedition. We highly recommend you tip them at the end of their service if you are happy. You can tip as much as you wish. It is the best way to say thank you to them.
