Mera Peak Climbing is one of the most popular peak climbing trips in the Everest region. While not technical, we will at times require crampons and to be guided by ropes. Among the non-technical peaks of Nepal, Mt. Mera, at 6,461 meters, is the tallest. We stay at teahouses during most of the trek but will be sleeping in tents for several days during our Mera peak climbing.
We start from Lukla airport following a short flight from Kathmandu. Normally, the trekking and Mera peak climbing packages lead you through the Dudh Koshi valley but this route is different, allowing you to experience typical Sherpa villages and valleys. The landscape is beautiful as you ascend rocky trails on the way up. After about a week of trekking, plus a rest day for acclimatization, we reach our base camp at roughly 5,300 meters. High camp is at 5,780 meters. During your stay at these camps, you’ll have pre-climbing practice sessions and instructions about the use of crampons, ice axes, ropes, and other materials. The summit day is outstanding. You ascend a long way to reach the top point and get fabulous Himalayan views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m), Cho Oyu (8,201m) and other surrounding peaks. We return to the village of Khare and over the next several days making our way back to Lukla and our return flight to Kathmandu.
