Description

Mera Peak 6476m is the highest permitted trekking peak to climb in Nepal. Mera peak climbing trip unleashes an opportunity to all the experienced trekkers and amateur climbers who dream & dare to achieve the sensation of standing on the summit of Himalayan peak.Mera Peak is one in the most alluring trekking peaks in Nepal as it requires a culturally stimulating journey through remote picturesque villages and forests – with a gentle climb towards the summit. It is best known because might be Nepal’s highest trekking high. The climb of Mera comes at the end of a week-long trekking and acclimatisation programme designed to give you convey . your knowledge possible chance associated with the enjoyable yet successful journey. The trip initiates in Kathmandu where we make preparations and enjoy the diversity of this ancient city before embarking on a flight into the town of Lukla in the Khumbu Valley, the entrance way to the Everest region.
You start your Mera Peak adventure with the exhilarating Kathmandu to Lukla flight with great views all during and the hair-raising landing at Lukla’s short runway. Having assembled your crew your route takes you south around the mountain to Paiya and Pangom avoiding the Zatrwa La crossing which at 4250m nearly always causes problems with altitude sickness.
This part in the route is quiet but heavily farmed. From Sibuje you branch north heading into pristine bamboo and rhododendron jungle before reaching your first tented camp.
The trek then moves on inside the Arun valley with plenty of time to acclimatise before reaching Khare where shortly spend a variety days acclimatising. The first day’s the push to the summit of Mera Peak takes you to the camp at Mera La and from there you move higher to the astonishing High camp clinging onto a rocky outcrop on the edge of the glacier. Sunset at high camp is amazing with Himalaya’s 8000m giants glowing orange as the sunshine fades. Summit day is often a long hard slog up the glacier before a short sharp scramble up an ice-wall to the summit of Mera Peak. Take several time as the cold will allow to enjoy the view, probably the best view of the Everest range in Nepal.
After summiting you descend back to Khare before tracking back down the Arun valley and finally heading over the Zatrwa La pass now fully acclimatised and dropping around Lukla.Situated south of Everest dominating the watershed of the thickly wooded and remote Hinku valley, Mera Peak doesn’t demand past climbing experience, as this is a non- technical trekking peak climbing in Nepal. During Mera Peak Climbing Adventure, we stay on the full supported tented camps, away from the teahouse crowd where our cook and kitchen staffs prepare all fresh and hygienic food.

Even though the Mera Peak climbing expedition is technically straightforward, there are some crevasses to manoeuvre around, and the route can be long and demanding after a fresh snowfall.
