About Mera Peak Climbing
Mera Peak 6476m, is the highest permitted trekking peak in Nepal as per NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association) but technically an achievable climb compared to other 6000m trekking peaks in Nepal. Therefore, Mera Peak an excellent pick for those looking for their first climbing experience in the Himalaya of Nepal. The 6476m high altitude do make up for the less technical skills required hence good training and preparations, physically and mentally is required for this climb. The other main reason people opt to climb Mera Peak is the magnificent summit view of the over-8000-meter-mountains such as Mt. Everest, 8848m, Mt. Lhotse, 8516m, Mt. Cho Oyu, 8201m, Mt. Makalu, 8463m, and Mt. Kanchenjunga, 8586m.
Mera Peak Climbing starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek leads through the incredibly remote and beautiful Hinku Valley. This unspoiled area of the Everest region boasts of beautiful green terraced fields, dense forest, rushing streams, swinging bridges and yak pastures with a backdrop of the highest mountains in the world. Sherpa villages and guesthouses, high in the summer pastures, are a welcome place for weary trekkers.
Previous climbing experience on snow, glacier and ice would be a great advantage; additionally our well-experienced Sherpa climbing guides will organize a training session on your personal climbing gears and necessary skills required for the climb at Khare. This is a straightforward climb for which acclimatization is absolutely crucial. As you trek higher into this remote valley, following the river to the glaciers, your body is gradually being acclimatized for the climb. Khare village (5045m) is the last village on Mera Peak trail where we will have Tea Houses. We have a mandatory acclimatization day, basic climbing training, clinic program and checking our gears and equipments before we move to upper camps. We will set Base Camp at 5350m and High Camp at 5780m before attempting for the final summit push. We will have one reserve day just in case of bad weather or any other unforeseen
Descending from Mera Peak, we retrace our steps to Lukla; feeling energized from our accomplishment and all the extra red blood cells in our system. Zawtra La Pass at the end is a treat before we descend back to Lukla. Next morning we have a early flight back to Kathmandu before your flight back home.
The best season for climbing Mera Peak in Nepal is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer trekkers around. The duration of the Mera Peak Climbing can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition will arrange every detail of your Mera Peak Expedition; lodge accommodation, permits, guides, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment required during the climb.
