Mera Peak Climbing is one of the thrilling opportunity for any traveler who wish to enjoy good climb and experience the remote adventure through less crowded trail covering with dense forests and charming settlements. Mera Peek is the highest trekking peak of Nepal at the elevation of 6476m, and considered as one of the best climbing experience for beginners to intermediate climbers and also as training peak before major expedition. Mera Peak summit offers one of the best view of eight thousand meters mountains and whole range of the Himalayas including Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m), Mt. Makalau (8463m) and Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m) along with several other 6000m and 7000m peaks.
Journey to Mera Peak will at least take two weeks and starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. We pass through Hinku valley – still unspoiled as compared to Upper Everest route of Gokyo or Everest Base Camp – and boasts beautiful landscapes and yak pastures with extraordinary background of the high mountains. We continue our walk to Khare which has the last teahouse before the climbing starts. Furthermore, we take a day for rest and acclimatization and also check with gears and equipments for climbing. Our climbing team will assist you to get familiarized with gears (if you don’t know previously) and brief you with details necessary for successful climb.
After a little briefing and training at Khare, the next day we head out to Mera Base Camp and then to High Camp before making our final push to the summit. Climbing is not easy, and it can be painful at times, but it is all forgotten when you arrive at the summit. We relax for some time enjoying the grand view of the Himalayas and of course take some photos to remember what you have achieved. We begin our descend towards Khare where we spend the night before retracing our path back to Lukla from where we will catch our flight back to Kathmandu.
