Overview

MERA PEAK -15 days

Mera Peak is one of the most alluring trekking peaks in Nepal as it Involves a culturally stimulating journey through picturesque villages and forests – followed by a gentle climb to the 6476m/21,246 ft Summit. Mera Peak is perhaps best known because it is Nepal’s highest trekking peak, ie: any peak above this height is considered a full expedition peak with it’s associated higher permit cost. The Mera climb comes at the end of a two weeks long trekking and acclimatization program followed by a climbing program designed to give you the best possible chance of success.

So far we have had 99% success rate in all of our Mera Peak expedition. The trip initiates in Kathmandu where we make last minute preparations and enjoy the cultural diversity of this ancient city before embarking on a short drive to Jiri and enter the Hinku from the south via Pangkongma to Khumbu valley and entranceway to Mt Everest. The expeditions are being run during both the post, and pre-monsoon seasons of 2007/8.This trip offers highlights of non-technical climbing at moderate to high altitude, and even though it is not technically difficult, the climb incorporates a lot of the components of the higher expedition peaks. In addition to the climbing the expedition offers stunning Himalayan views and exciting Nepalese cultural experiences.

An ascent of Mera Peak is regarded as the ideal introduction to Himalayan climbing. Whether you’ve climbed mountains before, or you just have aspirations to experience Himalayan expedition life, this introductory trip will enable you to truly savour the realities of expeditioning and many a Mera peak climber has been inspired onto other high mountains. The climbing is low angle and involves the use of two camps on the mountain before making the attempt at the top. You will be supervised and supported by our qualified sherpa and climbing guide who will teach you the necessary skills while experiencing this fantastic and safe adventure.
