Mera Peak Climbing

20 Days

Mera Peak climb, located at 6467m/21,193ft on the edge of the Khumbu region allows the adrenaline of climbing the highest trekking peak in Nepal by following the non-technical yet physically challenging route where you need to climb snow slopes and ice sections. The challenging climb to the rewards us with breathtaking views of five 8000-m Mountains. Everest and Lhotse greet us from the north while we can get close-up views of Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east and colossal Cho Oyu dominate the western skyline. This is the perfect peak for your first climbing experience. We will start our journey to the Summit from our High Camp. The cold weather coupled with the excitement of conquering the Summit will motivate us to prepare early for the climb.

The summit push is a relatively straightforward walk with the use of crampons, an ice-axe and a man rope. The route to the summit of Mera rarely exceeds the angle of 30-40 degrees but the final pitch involves a 30-meter ascent of a 50° snow dome, demanding climbers the use of jumar/ascender in a fixed rope depending on the snow condition. Summit day can be as long as 10-12 hrs. Therefore; We will start making arrangements at around 2 to 3 am and we will begin the slow climb at a gentle pace by dawn. It is going to be a long journey and it all depends on your stamina and weather conditions. Quick descent from the Summit to will take us to Khare village.

However; Mera peak itinerary has been devised carefully keeping every aspect in mind. Careful approach, proper acclimatization, contingency day etc. are all taken into consideration. Our Mera peak climb itinerary follows a longer route giving us more time to adapt to the increasing altitude. Our trek to the base camp of Mera Peak follows less-trodden trails via Chetra Khola ensuring proper acclimatization instead of the usual Zatrwa La Pass. After 10 days trek through the remote picturesque villages and forests, we get to the Mera base camp for our climb.
