Trip Introduction

Deemed as the highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera Peak Trekking (6461m) is located to the south of the Mt. Everest (8848m) and sports enthralling climb to the top. It is one of the most appealing trekking peaks in Nepal as it includestraversal through picturesque villages, Buddhist monasteries, and forested trail in the Sagarmatha National Park. The difficulty is forgotten in the awe of the spectacular views of the mighty Himalayas, including the Everest (8,848m), Cho Oyu (8,188m), Lhotse (8,414m), Makalu (8,463m), and Kanchenjunga (8,586m) atop the peak.

The 18-days Mera Peak Climbing initiates as we move from Kathmandu to Lukla on a 40-minutes scenic flight to the Lukla airport, famous for being one of the most dangerous airports in the world. The Peak Climbing journey officially kicks off at Lukla and after days of trekking reaches the destination of the trip. A short trek will take you Paiya which will help you to adjust to the environment. Enjoying the beautiful views, we descend through the pine forest to cross Hinku River and finally reach Nashing Dingma. The trek goes to the north leaving the forest behind and heads along the lush pasture lands. After a pleasant walk reaching to a wide open gorge, the walk continues to a small bridge to reach Thangnak. From Khare, we make a tough strenuous climb without any technical struggle reach to the top summit of Mera peak. The raptures of joy and pride are let loose and immediately calmed by the views of the stupendous Himalayan range in the Everest region. Some of the peaks that can be seen from the top of the Mera Peak are Cho Oyu (8,188m), Lhotse (8,516m), Nuptse (7861m), and Ama Dablam (6856m) among others. After the ascent, we return back to Khare along the slippery trails. Our trip ends at Lukla as we fly back to Kathmandu.

A remarkable journey like the Mera Peak Climbing requires company and guidance of similar caliber, we, at Corporate Adventure Treks, aim to do the same. We provide English-speaking guides with origins from the Everest region and all the necessary requirements for the journey.

Mera Peak is very high, it is a straightforward climb involving glacier travel, and only a basic level of mountaineering skill is required. You will use crampons and ice axe, but there is plenty of time at the base of the mountain to learn these skills.

However, because of the altitude, the trek is still very difficult and requires a high level of fitness. You must also ensure you walk slowly, hydrate well, eat as much as you can and give yourself the best chance of arriving for summit night in good physical.

Our itinerary takes 19 days in total. It is possible to attempt this climb in fewer days than our itinerary suggests, and if you are very fit, have experience of trekking at altitude, and want to do a private trip, we are happy to arrange this. Generally though, shorter trips save days in two ways.

First, from Lukla they head straight over Zatwa La: this saves two days, but immediately takes you up to 4500m and there is a very high likelihood of climbers suffering severe altitude sickness. This is a very bad way to start your preparation for the climb.

The second way to save time is to cut out acclimatization days. Again, while this saves days, it also significantly reduces the chances of summiting successfully.

The total trekking distance is 78 miles or 125 kilometers.

The Mera Peak tour takes in everything. You begin by trekking through lush valleys, before heading higher up into farmland and rhododendron forests. From there, you’ll come across beautiful lakes and rivers, before finding yourself at the base of Mera. The summit is unforgettable as you get a magnificent view that includes Everest and Lhotse!

Mera is classified as a trekking peak in Nepal, since you will be using crampons and be on a rope, most insurance policies categorize this as mountaineering. Add in the fact that it is over 6500m, and you need to be very careful about checking your insurance policy.

Also bear in mind that unlike the treks up the main Khumbu Valley, the Mera region is relatively remote, and if you have a problem you will need a helicopter evacuation. Check insurance company in your country or let me know we will suggest insurance company.

Mera Peak sits in the Mahalangur section of the Himalaya, to the East of the main Everest massif.

Mera Peak actually has three summits: Mera North, 6,476 metres; Mera Central, 6,461 metres; and Mera South, 6,065 metres (19,898 ft). We take all our clients to the highest, Mera North.
