Mera peak difficulty

Climbing Mera peak itself is not very technical and doesn’t consist of a steep technical climb but the high altitude reaching 6461m at the summit makes this a challenging climb. Unlike other trekking peaks in Nepal, the climb to Mera peak is straightforward. The majority of the climb involves walking in a glacier at a relatively fair degree of steepness with the use of crampons and ice axe. The final section of the climb involves an ascent of the snow dome at a 5o degree angle with the use of an ascender/jumar on a fixed rope.

Training for Mera Peak

High altitude treks and climbs especially in the Himalayas are challenging and require you to be in the top physical, emotional, and psychological condition. The more fitter you are, the more enjoyable your trip will be.
Training well ahead in advance is recommended and after you have signed up for the trip, we will send you our training booklet which provides essential information on how best to prepare yourself.
Whilst on the trip before your actual climb, we will conduct a climbing clinic at the base camp where our guides will teach you the required mountaineering skills.
