About Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing is an exhilarating adventure that combines trekking through stunning landscapes with a rewarding summit experience. It is one of Nepal's most popular trekking peaks in the Everest region. The climb is straightforward but requires good physical and mental preparation. The summit offers stunning views of the over-8000-meter-mountains such as Mt. Everest 8,848 m (29,031 ft), Mt. Kanchenjunga 8,586 m (28,169 ft), Mt. Lhotse 8,516 m (27,940 ft), Mt. Makalu 8,481 m ( 27,825 ft) and Mt. Cho Oyu 8,188 m (26,864 ft). 

Mera Peak Climbing Route Overview

Annapurna Foothills Treks has designed the best itinerary for a 21-day Mera Peak Climbing via the lower route, ensuring you'll be well-acclimatized before the Mera Peak Summit push. It begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla 2,840m. From here, the trail descends through forests to the traditional village of Surke (2290m). Surke village resembles the birthplace of Late Pasang Lhamu Sherpa (1961 A.D - 1993 A.D.) the first Nepalese Woman to summit Mount Everest. The trail then ascends gradually to Pakhepani (2,560m) before reaching Paiya (2730m). The trail then continues to Panggom 2,850, a Sherpa village above the Hinku Valley. Moving on towards our major objective, we pass through several Sherpa settlements, namely Ramailo Danda (3276m), Chhatra Khola (3122m), Kothe (3600m), Thangnak (4356m) and finally Khare (5045m).

The climb to  Mera Peak is straightforward but requires adequate acclimatization. Accordingly, you will have rest days at Thangnak and Khare to allow your body to adjust to the altitude. At Khare, we will conduct basic climbing training during acclimatization day and recheck your climbing gear before marching towards the summit.

Mera Peak Summit Day

The summit day is typically the most challenging and exciting part of the climb. You will push for the summit in the early morning, often before dawn. The final section of the climb involves a push toward the summit. The terrain can vary, including snow slopes and possibly exposed ridges. Ropes, crampons, and ice axes may be necessary.

Reaching the summit of Mera Peak is, undoubtedly, a remarkable achievement. You will take your time relishing and enjoying the breath-taking panoramic, which includes the world's five tallest mountains which are Mt. Everest 8,848 m / 29,031 ft.), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m / 28,169 ft.), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m / 27,940 ft.), Mt. Makalu (8,481 m / 27,825 ft.) and Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m / 26,864 ft.). After spending some time on the summit, you will begin your descent.

Retracing Steps to Lukla

The following day, you will descend further, returning to Lukla. This descent helps your body adjust gradually to thicker air and reduces the risk of altitude-related issues. The Mera Peak Climbing is an unforgettable experience that will physically and mentally challenge you. It is an excellent opportunity to explore the pristine beauty of the Everest region and to summit one of Nepal's most popular trekking peaks.

Returning to Lukla by Helicopter

Returning to Lukla by helicopter is a great way to conclude your Mera Peak Climbing Trek. It is a scenic and exhilarating way to witness the mountains, and it can also save you a lot of time. The helicopter shuttle service is available from any of these three Sherpa settlements (Khare, Thangnak, and Kothe) and starts from USD 850 for chartering.

    Mera Peak Climbing Difficulty Level

    Mera Peak is a famous trekking and climbing destination in Nepal's Khumbu region. The difficulty of climbing Mera Peak depends on several factors, including weather conditions, route choice, personal fitness level, and prior experience.

    Mera Peak climbing is considered a technically straightforward climb, best suited for climbers with previous trekking experience and basic mountaineering skills. However, it does not require advanced technical mountaineering skills like using ropes for steep rock or ice climbing.

    Despite the route not being that technical, climbing Mera Peak does require a good level of physical fitness and endurance due to the altitude and the demanding nature of high-altitude trekking (long and challenging days of trekking, including steep ascents and descents, often in harsh weather conditions). Thus, we suggest our guests have prior trekking experience at high altitudes and be comfortable with multi-day trekking and camping. Undertaking comprehensive physical training before attempting the climb, including cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and endurance building, is highly recommended.

    Preparing yourself for Mera Peak Climbing

    Preparing for Mera Peak climbing is an exciting and challenging endeavour. Mera Peak is a stimulating climb, and appropriate preparation is key for a successful ascent and safe experience undertaking Mera Peak climbing.

    Physical Preparation

    Climbing Mera Peak is a demanding one that requires a good level of physical fitness. Prepare yourself by working on cardiovascular exercises like running, hiking, cycling, or swimming to improve your endurance. Include strength training exercises to build your leg muscles, core strength, and upper body strength.

    Another factor is acclimatization. Keeping that in mind, we've designed our itinerary with enough rest days and gradual altitude gains to allow your body to adjust to the thin air. Though Mera Peak climbing is a straightforward climb, it does involve some basic mountaineering techniques and the use of crampons, ice axes, and ropes. Joining a mountaineering course to learn and sharpen necessary climbing skills will be helpful if you are not experienced in alpine climbing.

    Mental Preparation

    Preparing yourself mentally plays a crucial role in achieving the goal (reaching the Mera Peak summit) you've set. Climbers must be mentally prepared to deal with strenuous situations at high altitudes and give their best effort to reach High Camp (summit night) in good physical condition. Prepare yourself mentally by researching and understanding the route, challenges, and risks involved. Build mental flexibility, a positive mindset, and confidence in your abilities. It can also be helpful to connect with experienced climbers or enrol in a climbing community to gain intuitions and guidance.

    Travel Insurance for Mera Peak Climbing

    Travel insurance is essential for adventure activities like climbing Mera Peak (6,476 m above sea level). The insurance should cover emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability, and medical treatment. The insurance must cover all the activities you undertake during your Nepal stay.

        Tipping your Guides and Porters for Mera Peak Climbing

It is important to acknowledge their hard work, dedication, and assistance throughout your Mera Peak expedition. Tipping is not mandatory, but it is customary and significantly appreciated. You can visit our Tips for Tipping page for detailed information. 

        Food, Water, and Accommodation during Mera Peak Climbing

        Tea houses or lodges play a crucial role in providing accommodation and meals to trekkers and climbers in most of the trekking regions in Nepal.

        Food

        During Mera Peak climbing, meals consisting of a diet rich in carbohydrates are mostly served. This is because our bodies do not process fat and protein efficiently at higher altitudes. The meals are also designed to compensate for the increase in caloric need that high-altitude climbing involves. We try to make meals and breakfasts diverse and as standard as possible.

        Usually, you will have your breakfast and dinner at the same lodge where you will be staying. Lunch will be served at tea houses or small lodges along the trail. Typical meals are dal Bhat, rice, noodles, pasta, hash brown, potatoes, etc. with different styles (fried with veggies, eggs, veggies & eggs, plain, mixed). At tea houses, checking with your guide to get the most up-to-date information on food options and availability will be a wise thing to do.

        As you ascend to higher altitudes, the variety of food becomes more limited but fresh and healthy. At base camp and higher camps, our private climbing cook will prepare fresh and healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinners to all the team members with tea or coffee. With advance notice, we can arrange diets like vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. to members preferring so.

        Water

        It is equally important to prioritize your health and hydration during Mera Peak climbing. It is essential to confirm you have access to safe drinking water throughout your expedition. From Day 3 to Khare village (the last settlement) at an elevation of 5,045 meters, drinking water will be accessible and available in the teahouses where you will be staying, either from taps, boiled water, or bottled water. We strongly suggest our guests to be cautious of using untreated water from natural sources and tap as well as it may contain harmful microorganisms that can cause waterborne infections. We highly recommend drinking boiled water, or bottled water after using water purification tablets or steripen or portable water filters.

        While staying in tented camps during the climb, our supporting staff will carry and bring it all the way up to the tents. Then, we provide drinking water to our climbing members only after treating the water (boiled, sterilized, or boiled and sterilized) ensuring proper usage and effectiveness.

        Accommodation

        Most of the tea houses during the Mera Peak expedition will be owned, run, and managed by Sherpa families (family-run lodges). Most of the tea houses throughout your trek (up to Khare) will have a comfortable twin-sharing room for trekkers. The rooms are simple but clean. A room usually has two single beds with a foam mattress and pillow. The toilet could be shared or attached. A blanket is provided but many prefer to bring their own sleeping bag.

        In the peak climbing season, it might be difficult to find better accommodation due to the inflow of a large number of trekkers/climbers. In that case, we reserve rooms for our guests in advance so that they can have a nice and warm room at the end of a long trekking day. A sense of adventure will be a great advantage to help you adjust to some tea houses/lodges which are more basic than others.

        Guides and Porters for Mera Peak Climbing

        Guides and porters play a critical role in providing support, know-how, and assistance throughout the climb. The number of guides and porters you will need for your Mera Peak Climbing will be determined by the size of your group. Climbing Mera Peak undoubtedly requires a trustworthy team of guides and porters to guarantee a safe and successful expedition. With Annapurna Foothills, we assure everything will be well taken care of.

        A typical day on Mera Peak Climbing

        A typical day on Mera Peak climbing begins with a wake-up call at 6:00 AM. After freshening up, climbers gather their climbing gear and pack their backpacks with essentials like water, snacks, extra clothing layers, and personal items. They then enjoy a hearty breakfast to fuel up for the day ahead.

        The trek for the day usually begins around 7:00 AM. The trail may vary depending on the specific route chosen, but it typically involves ascending and descending through rugged terrain, and forests, and crossing suspension bridges over rivers. After walking for a few hours, climbers stop for lunch. This lunch break provides an opportunity to rest, refuel, and take in the beautiful surroundings.

        After lunch, climbers continue their journey to reach the destination chosen for the day to stay overnight. Upon reaching the designated destination, climbers settle into their rooms or tents and take some time to rest and relax. As the sun sets (around 6:30 PM), dinner is served in the dining hall. The meals typically consist of a variety of dishes, including carbohydrates, proteins, and vegetables, to replenish energy reserves.

        After dinner, the guide will conduct a briefing session, discussing the next day's plan, any challenges, safety precautions, and general mountaineering tips. Climbers then have free time to rest, chat, read, or engage in activities before going to bed. It's important to get enough rest to aid in acclimatization and prepare for the challenges of the next day.

        As climbers progress towards the higher altitudes of Mera Peak, additional rest days (at Thangnak and Khare) and altitude acclimatization are usually built into the itinerary to minimize the risk of altitude sickness and ensure a successful summit attempt.

        Even if you leave the expedition early, we are committed to paying the porters and guides for the duration of the trip for which they are hired. Therefore, no refunds will be given for the unused days of your trip. However, we can offer you something complementary, depending on the circumstances.

        There are three different routes to approach Mera Peak:

        • Zawtra La Pass (4610m)
        • Paiya – Pangom - Ramailo Danda
        • Cholem Kharka - Khola Kharka – Panch Pokhari

        If our domestic flights to or from Lukla are cancelled due to bad weather, we will have two options:

        We can reschedule your flight for the next day. However, you will be responsible for additional expenses like accommodation and food.

        We can arrange a helicopter flight, which will be more expensive than a regular flight. The cost will depend on the availability of helicopters, the number of people in the group, and the weight of the luggage.

         

        Yes, a climbing permit is required to climb Mera Peak. The permit is issued by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). We will arrange the permit for you as part of our package.

        You do not have to join a group or departure dates to climb a 6000-meter peak in Nepal. We are always flexible with our trips to accommodate your needs. We are open to changes in the trip details as long as they do not harm your chances of acclimatization. Private or solo trips are possible but are more expensive than joining a fixed-date group. We highly recommend hiring a reputable guide service for a safe and secure climbing experience. With Annapurna Foothills, you can be confident that you will be assigned local professional guides and highly experienced porters who put your safety first.
