The Mera Peak expedition begins with a scenic turbulent mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Following your arrival in Lukla, the trails will take you through the untouched and natural villages of Hinku Valley. There are two trekking trails from Lukla to Mera Peak; however, we march towards Chuthanga, which is one of the less traveled trails of the Mera Peak Trail.The 18 days Mera peak expedition follows through rivers and frozen streams; Zatrawala Pass; dense fir, pine and rhododendron forest; terraced green paddy fields; glaciers and traditional villages. At first, the journey descends through the villages: Chhuthang, Zatrawala pass and Thuli Kharka; then inclines uphill tracing Kothe, Thangnak and Khare before landing at Mera Base Camp (5,300m/ 17,388ft). The final expedition from Base Camp to summit is challenging and strenuous due to thin air, steep ridge and cold temperature. The top of the peak is a serene point from where we can perceive scenic landscape and panoramic view of coruscating peaks: Nuptse, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Mt. Everest, Cho-Oyu and numerous other peaks.

Mera Peak Climbing package is specially tailored by ANA as recommended by the experts. Mountaineering is absolutely challenging than trekking; so, we have added plenty of acclimatization and short day trek to avoid AMS or any hazard. To make the trekking expedition moderate and comfortable, we have hired the experienced guides who support and provide proper guidance needed for mountaineering. We have preferred safer and less-crowded trekking trails; safer and technically easier summit and best season for expedition. Throughout the expedition, we shelter at tea house up-to Khare; but at Base camp and High camp, we take shelter in camp. Mera Peak Climbing is the package for novice mountaineers and experienced trekkers who prefer venturing the summit to keep lifelong memory.

About Mera Peak: Among numerous permitted trekking peaks, Mera peak is the highest climbing peak in Nepal with the elevation of 6,476m/ 21,247ft. Erected in the east of Mt. Everest in Khumbu region, Mera peak contains three summits: Mera Peak North (6,476m/ 21,247ft), Mera Peak Central and Mera Peak South (6,065m/ 19,898ft). Out of these three summits, Mera Peak North has glaciers in the route and South side is technically demanding; therefore, we prefer Mera Peak Central (6,461m/ 21,190ft) for our expedition. It is one of the scenically elegant peaks of Mahalangur range which offers the stupendous view of sparkling peaks including 5 out of 6 world’s highest peak in Nepal: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga.

Q-1: How hard is Mera Peak Climbing ?
  • Mera Peak is known to be one of the highest climbing peaks of Nepal. It is not a difficult climb at an extreme altitude of 6,461m (21,190ft.) except for the final summit of 100m/328ft. with a steep that needs to be climbed vertically. Mera Peak climbing is a great introduction to high altitude climbing and the most appropriate practice climb before attempting for other challenging mountain expeditions. Getting to the base camp of Mera Peak all the way from Lukla on a regular trekking trail is, in fact the hard part. It is on the trekking segment where you must be ready to deal with tiresome days of hiking for several days and keeping yourself in a good shape and tackle with altitude sickness as well. The climbing section is easy and safe because of the fixed lines, so we highly recommend this climb even for a beginner who wants to climb an ice-peak. It is always wise to consult with experts like Himalayan Glacier before planning your trip emotionally. We will guide you and help you with all the requirements including physical fitness and exercises right from day one.

Q-2: Which is the best season for Mera Peak Climbing ?

  • It is possible to climb Mera Peak all through the year although summer time is not recommended as it is also the monsoon period. However, spring and fall seasons are considered to be the best and most suitable time of the year for any climbing journey in the Himalayas. September through November is the fall season, also called autumn, and the temperatures are moderate and weather tends to be very clear. March through early June is the spring season and also the busiest climbing season of the year in Nepal. Mera Peak can also be attempted during the winter, but the extreme cold around this time could be hazardous for climbers who are not experienced enough to tackle the altitude as well as the biting cold.

Q-3: Whom am I climbing with ?

  • You will be climbing along with other like-minded people unless you book for a private tour or we do not have a group on your preferred date. You will be guided by Himalayan Glacier’s experienced and knowledgeable local climbing instructors or Sherpa climbing leaders who have been to the top of the peak successfully multiple times. Some climbing leaders have also summited Mt. Everest at least once or few times in their climbing career. Your guide will provide you with important tips and teach you the tricks while assisting you from day one. He will also provide you with pre-climbing training the day before summit at the base camp. Lot of cheap operators do not take this climbing trip seriously thereby risking your health or well-being, so be very prudent when you choose your climbing operator.

Q-4: Is my trip departure Guaranteed ?

  • Absolutely yes! Under normal circumstances, our booked trips are guaranteed to run. You will still be doing your trek even if other trekkers cancel their trip. This is the reason why All Nepal Adventure  is different from other agencies, who usually cancel their whole trip a month or even a week before the trip date. We are a tailor-made company and the number of participants does not stop our operation. If your trip has been canceled by your operator and you are in a last-minute stress, remember to find us to sort out your trip decisions. Please feel free to book your stress-free holidays with us. Unless there is a situation which is out of control such as a political riot, natural disaster, pandemic, epidemic or weather catastrophes, our trips are 100% guaranteed to run.

Q-5: What if canceled the trip, do i get my refund ?

  • All Nepal Adventure offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.

Q-6: How much does Mera Peak Climbing cost ?

  • The cost of any trip in the Himalayas depend on a number of factors including the company you choose, the services they offer, number of days, various routes and more. The cost is something similar like buying an iPhone – some come with less features at a low cost while the latest ones with increased features will cost a bit more. In general, the price for climbing Island Peak ranges from $3100 to $4700 per person. Also depending on group size, duration of trek, whether it is a tent or tea house trek, whether domestic flights or jeep transport is included.

Q-7:What do we need for trekking in Nepal ?

  • Good boots, warm clothes (we provide a packing list for each trek) and your own day pack. We provide a lot of the gear that you will need up in the mountains. Please be in touch for more info.

Q-8:What size are the groups ?

  • For our upcoming treks the groups vary between 2 to 15 people. Private trekking parties group sizes are not limited.

Q-9: I am travelling on my own, can you assist ?

  • Most definitely. You are welcome to join our pre-planned treks, or if you wish to trek on your own, we can arrange a porter and guide to accompany you.

Q-10:What do I prepare for Altitude ?

  • The secret to altitude is time. The golden rule for acclimatization at high altitude states that one should start acclimatizing at +/-10,000 feet (3,000 meters) above the sea level. Once you reach that altitude, it is recommended that you increase the elevation of your stay at no more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) per night before you continue to ascend. Resting overnight at 1,000 feet (300 meters) elevation increase each day will help your body to acclimatize naturally.
