Best Company for Mera Peak Climbing

Trip Overview


Mera Peak Climbing is the excursion to the summit of Mera Peak. Mera Peak at the height of 6470 meters/21247 feet is the most climbing peak after Island Peak by the trekkers. Mera peak can be climbed without past mountaineering experience.

Mera Peak is a non-technical high altitude trekking peak. The mountain has less to non-technical challenges, there are 3-4 small opening crevasses during the climb but apart from that, the climb is straight forward. The climb normally starts very early in the morning and it is about 3-4 hours climb from high camp to the summit.

It’s a fact that on a clear day you will see five of the six highest mountains on Earth. Everest (8848m)- 1st highest mountain, Lhotse (8516m)- 4th highest mountain, Makalu (8463m)- 5th highest mountain and Cho Oyu (8201m)- 6th highest mountain are all very close by, and when it’s clear you may just be able to see Kangchenjunga (8586m)- 3rd highest mountain far away to the east.

Although no previous climbing experience is required, if you have experience in abseiling; using crampons, ice-ax, walking roped-up will be an advantage. Also, it requires a good level of physical fitness as you will be climbing under challenging conditions (thin air, extreme cold, snow, and wind).

Summiting Mera Peak mostly depends on the weather condition and your fitness level. Thus, all climbers are recommended to take in fitness training before 6 – 4 months before your trip.  You will need good endurance and body strength. Aerobic exercises mixing with overall body strength building routines should help you prepare physically for your trip.

Mera Peak was at the first summitted by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing in 1953 AD. Notwithstanding, the best possible climb was made by Marcel Jolly, G. Baus, and L. Honnis in 1975. They are French Climbers who began climbing following a similar course by Roberts yet crossing along the joining edge to the further highest point.

Mera Peak Climbing trip is a regularly either 18 days or 20 days trip from your arrival day in Kathmandu to the last takeoff from Nepal. Be that as it may, it tends to be modified by your interest and preference.

After the flight land in Lukla Airport, you put in a few minutes for the planning of trekking. From that point onward, you follow the path that goes through terraced scenes, excellent unblemished valleys possessed by Sherpa individuals. In the course, you will cross paddy fields, woods, a portion of the solidified cascades, and unbelievable icy masses with astonishing perspectives on high mountains.

Before coming to Mera Peak Base Camp, we get you two days rest for acclimatization purposes: one day in Thagnak and another day at Khare. On an extra day at Khare our climbing guide gives you preparing on climbing procedures like utilizing climbing gears and so forth. After the entire day acclimatized in Khare, you trek to Mera Peak Base Camp at that point to High Camp following day. From High Camp, you will encounter the stunning all-encompassing perspectives.

You begin climbing the highest point promptly toward the beginning of the day following the northern course. This slow ascension is with an all-encompassing mountain sights. When you arrive at the top you appreciate the five high mountains which are 8000 meters above ocean level. They are Mt.Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m) and Kanchenjunga (8586m) alongside different pinnacles like Nuptse (7855m) and Chamlang (7319m).

Subsequent to finishing the highest point you drop back to Lukla following a similar course that followed previously. You end this bold lifetime venture in Lukla and back to Kathmandu.

The best time of Mera Peak Climbing is from Mid-March to May (Spring Season) and October – November (Autumn Season). During this time the weather relatively becomes stable than other times of the year. No matter what time you choose for the climb, temperatures at the top are still incredibly cold, yet bearable.
