Mera Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PMP

22 Days

Mera Peak, Khumbu Nepal

Located at the edge of the Khumbu region, southeast of Everest, the trekking route for Mera peak climbing is via the excessively beautiful Hinku valley. The unspoiled and uninhabited valley is one of the wildest and most beautiful in Nepal with massive moraines, glacial lakes, and stunning mountain views.

There are many approaches to Mera; some are easy and some require the crossing of high and difficult passes. The climbing of Mera Peak has become more popular each year due to the extraordinary scenery it offers and also because previous mountaineering experience is not required.

This is the highest trekking peak (6654 meters) allowed for climbing in Nepal. However it also one of the least demanding technical climbs. Being such a high mountain, the climb is in a  true sense a challenging one, but the slopes rarely exceed 30 degrees and the climbing is straightforward.
Similar to all the treks and climbing trips to Everest, trekking route to Mera starts with a scenic mountain flight to Lukla. From Lukla we ascend uphill slowly to the eastward, crossing the Zatra La pass and finally we reach the Mera La pass on the ninth day where we set up our base camp to summit  Mera peak. Climbing Mera Peak is possible in a single day from the base camp but we avoid such a rush for safety reason.  We will allow one day for proper rest and acclimatization and make use of a high camp to ensure  100 % success. Finally,  we ascend the three summits of Mera from where we would enjoy a stunning summit panorama that includes 5 of the world’s 8000m peaks such as  Mt.Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo.Makalu and, Kangchenjunga. Good weather and snow conditions are the major factors for safety and successful summit. The west and south faces of the peak are considered to be difficult technical routes. If favourable weather condition prevails, it is possible to summit the peak and descend back to the base camp on the same day.
