About Mera Peak Climbing
The Himalaya of Nepal are the world’s most exciting destination for climbing. 414 peaks are open to mountain climbing in Nepal and summiting a Himalayan peak can be an adventurous challenge and exhilarating experience of a lifetime.
Mera Peak is (6,461 mt / 21,190 ft), Mera Peak is located in Sagarmatha National Park south of the world’s tallest peak, Everest. The peak is also adjacent to Makalu-Barun National Park. The spectacular mountain scenery and surrounding terrain will be unforgettable. Mera Peak lies in a remote valley off the beaten track. It is also one of the highest of the specially classified ‘Trekking Peaks’ and is therefore more of a challenge, especially as it is higher than most of the tallest peaks in the world, not including the Himalaya.
The summit was first climbed in 1953 and offers an astonishing view of the surrounding peaks including Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga and beyond into remote valleys in Nepal and Tibet. Mera Peak can be attempted by all comers, even people without mountaineering know-how and experience, and we will brief you on the use of equipment. Still, it will be demanding and should be attempted only by people fit and acclimatized to high elevation.
The Everest Region is entered by an enchanting weeklong hike from the lowlands or a quick and picturesque flight to the high altitude air field at Lukla from Kathmandu. Our team assembles in Lukla and together we ascend to isolated Hinku Valley to the west.
We trek through highland grazing areas to establish the lower base camp at nearly 5,300 mt / 17,670 ft, and high camp near Mera Glacier with unforgettable landscape. Our specialists will make sure the timing is right when we make an attempt for the summit and then marvel at the magnificent panorama as we enjoy our achievement.
