overview

Mera Peak Climbing is an adventure to one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal and an exploration of the fairly unexplored and densely landscape at the edge of Khumbu region. With the panoramic view of several of the world’s highest peaks above 8000m as the highlight of this non-technical climb adventure, you shall have glimpse of authentic Sherpa culture, green and lush landscape and quaint trekking trails are other attractions. Trekkers complete their Mera Peak climbing with a traverse of the sanctuary of Makalu Barun National Park, high pastures, high altitude passes, small villages of hardworking Sherpas, lush valleys, glacial moraines, and majestic glaciers, diverse vegetation, and sparsely inhabited Hinku valley. Join this trek for a moderate mountaineering experience, off the beaten trekking and experience of trekking immersed in unique local culture.

Mera Peak Climbing adventure begins from Lukla, the famous gateway to the Khumbu region and immediately takes the less explored trail towards the Hinku valley. Through the dense forest with pristine rhododendron, oak, silver fir, birch and Jennifer trees, small settlements with stone houses and ensembles of Sherpa culture, we reach to the steep face of Zatrwa La Pass (4610m). Further ahead in the trail we have the view of beautiful alpine lakes and Peak Mera Glacier as we further explore the trail ahead towards the peak. Continuing further below the tree level and on some long descent trail on a steep rocky trail on a mountainside, we traverse through the settlements of Thangnak and Khare to finally reach the base of Mera Peak. Observing the glorious summit of Mera Peak en route, we climb through the glacial moraine, rocky terrains and snowfields with an easy and sometimes steep ascent to reach the peak of the scenic Mera Peak. After enjoying the views of five eight-thousanders (Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu) we shall take some mandatory summit shots and descend down to High Camp, Base Camp, and Khare. Through the small settlements with few teahouses and green lush landscape, we return to Lukla and then to Kathmandu to end the Mera Peak climbing.

Mera Peak Climbing requires you to have above average physical fitness enough to hike for 6-7 hours a day in hilly terrain and previous experience of ice ax and crampons, yet no previous climbing experience is needed. Develop in you the mental endurance to sustain yourself during the adventure and get an opportunity to explore the alpine wilderness. March to June and October to December are the best season for Mera Peak Climbing expedition. Pack your bags and go for Mera Peak Climbing with our professional team, meticulously developed itinerary, and quality service!

Good to know

Difficulties rating of Mera Peak Climbing
Trekkers have to climb a peak so trekker should be fit to do this trekking. Maximum altitude of the trek is 6475m, so you should be careful about altitude related risk. To get rid of it please walk slowly and have more water and avoid alcoholic drinks. Please be careful of frost bit and snow blindness. You must take care of your health.

Safe drinking water on Mera Peak Climbing
Basically, we can get mineral water bottles in lower places but as we go higher cannot find it. In that case, we suggest you drink boiled water which may charge a small fee, found in tea houses and better to bring chlorine tablets to purify water. Due to no provision of plastic bottles better to use boiled rather than mineral water, helpful for the protection of the environment.

Recharging Batteries of Electronic Items On the Trek
Hydroelectricity or solar power sources are used to charge your electrical items like camera, batteries, iPod, iPhone etc. Tea houses or lodges may charge a small fee per hours for charging facilities. Better to buy adopters before the trip since plugs are limited. In Nepal, 220-240 volt power is used and sockets fit round and flat plugs.

Garbage Disposal
Use a dustbin and do not throw anything into the fire. Carry garbages in the way where dustbin facilities are not available and conserve the environment.

Spending Money per Day
It mainly depends upon spending habits, normally you should allocate US$ 9-12 per meal in Kathmandu. On trekking, US$ 10-14 a day is good enough to buy drinks and chocolates.

Travel Insurance for Mera Peak Climbing
You should be sufficiently protected and need to have travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, lost items, liabilities, injuries, and medical treatment. Ensure the insurance covers all the activities in the Himalayas. Trekking Planner can offer the appropriate medical response based on your policy and insurance.

Washing and Toilet facilities for Mera Peak Climbing:
All the guest houses offer hot showers, which can be in a bathroom or can be a bucket of hot water. Please note that at high altitude there may not be enough hot water for all the trekkers. Limit the use of hot water unless the water is solar heated or firewood for the ecological reason. Every lodge has some kind of washing facilities but you must carry a bar of soap. If the water froze then ask your guide to get a warm bowl of water.
The toilet is mainly Asian squat style. Basically, the toilet is outside your room and varies in how clean they are. You should not through toilet paper in the toilet hole rather you should use a rubbish bin that is kept inside the toilet.

Tea Houses
On this trekking route, local people have built tea houses lodge with food and beverage facilities. A simple room usually has two narrow beds. While staying in the tea houses you will see the charming local people with their good hospitality services.
