About Trip

Mera Peak Climbing an exciting and adventurous journey to scale the highest peak permitted for climbing in Nepal takes you to the south of Everest, at the edge of Khumbu region. Mera Peak was first summited by Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tensing in 1953 and is preferred by trekkers who want to experience snow hiking and climbing. The trail passes through Sherpa settlements in the Khumbu region, where grazing yaks and cooking on fire from yak dung is common.

The trek begins after an early morning flight to Lukla(2800m) from where we walk to Chhutenga and stay overnight. In the subsequent days, the slow gain in elevation as we move through Khothey, Tagnak, and Khare helps us acclimatize as well. Crossing the Mera La pass we reach the Mera Peak Base Camp and ascend further to the High Camp(5750m). Mera Peak(6654m) itself is technically an easy climb and the slopes seldom exceed 40 degrees, however, crevasses at places demand alertness. The climb could be challenging after a fresh snowfall. The classic snow ridge that guides us to a steep slope takes a strenuous 50 meters ascent before reaching the top. The panorama formed by Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu and other peaks is magnificent and rewarding to the climb. We take the same route back to Khare and return to Lukla, the starting point of our trek.

Mera has three summits among which we climb the highest one. The trek itself is physically demanding due to high altitude gain, however, Mera Peak is an easy endeavor. Gradual ascent through beautiful valleys and rural Sherpa communities aids acclimatization and makes for a pleasurable journey. Views of the 8000m peaks Everest, Cho-Oyo, Lhotse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga including several other peaks are outstanding from Mera La onwards.
