Overview

Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing is an incredible and motivating experience that keeps you speechless. Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. It’s located in the Himalayas Khumbu region. Mera Peak Climbing provides an experience that will never be forgotten.

Our Mera Peak expedition begins with a walk through the virgin forest of the Hinku Valley. The valley is incredibly beautiful, and provides excellent acclimatization for the Mera Peak trek itself. Further on, walking along the glacier with glorious panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and other 7–8,000m giants, is an unforgettable experience. Our return trek, over the Zetra La, means we don’t retrace our steps and enjoy new vistas from start to finish.

This is an exciting, scenically stunning mountain that provides a superb challenge for the very fit, keen hill walker. The trek to Mera Peak is technically straightforward, but as Nepal’s highest trekking peak, at 6,476m, it is very demanding.

The Mera Base Camp is located at the Mera Glacier. The Mera Peak crevasse is 5800m, while the first camp will be 5000m. The jaw-dropping views of Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Ama Dablam treat you magnificently, assisting you in forgetting all the hardships during the climbing of the mountain.

Highlights:

  • Carefully planned route that provides the best acclimatization as well as stunning Himalayan scenery.
  • Highly experienced qualified leader supported by Climbing Sherpa’s in the ratio of 1 Sherpa to every 4 clients.
  • Tea house accommodation on the trail with 2 nights camping at Mera Peak.
  • Three-star hotel in Kathmandu with time for rest and relaxation after your trek.
