Details

Embarking on the ascent of Mera Peak, the tallest trekking peak in Nepal, is not just a climb; it’s a fusion experience, blending trekking with peak climbing. This majestic peak, preferred by both hardcore mountaineers and those with moderate and novice climbing prowess, stands tall at 6,476 meters (21,247 ft) in the Hinku Valley of the Sagarmatha region.

The journey begins in Lukla, where the anticipation of scaling Mera Peak comes to life. The route takes you through the challenging Zatar La Pass (4,610m/15,124ft) towards the base camp nestled at an altitude of 4,800m (15,700ft). Along this path, you traverse culturally rich Sherpa villages, adding a cultural dimension to the physical challenges that lie ahead. Proper acclimatization becomes paramount, given the altitude to be conquered during the climb.

While the ascent of Mera Peak may not present the most extreme challenges compared to some of its Himalayan counterparts, it promises an adventure that won’t leave you disappointed. The altitude and ascent mirror the challenges faced by professional peak climbers tackling more demanding peaks. The reward, however, is the breathtaking view awaiting at the summit.

Upon reaching the pinnacle, you are greeted by an exquisite panorama of majestic peaks – Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, and Baruntse – a sight worth every hardship endured. The base camp at 5,300m on the Hongu sector and the high camp at 5,800m on a rocky projection serve as crucial waypoints in this exhilarating journey.

Notably, prior peak climbing experience is not a mandatory prerequisite for attempting Mera Peak. However, as you ascend to 6,461m, challenges abound, with altitude sickness becoming a potential concern. Even seemingly minor ascents may feel like an eternity, underscoring the standard challenges of peak climbing. The journey, however, becomes a learning experience, where acquiring necessary skills becomes an integral part of the adventure.

In the realm of Mera Peak, each step is a conquest, and every challenge is a stepping stone towards unparalleled views and a sense of accomplishment. So, if you seek an extraordinary blend of trekking and peak climbing, where the rewards match the hardships, join us on the ascent of Mera Peak – a journey that transcends the boundaries of ordinary climbing.

Trip Highlights
  • Summit of Mera Peak, Nepal's highest hiking peak (6,476 metres).
  • Possibility to learn the fundamentals of mountaineering, including how to use an ice axe and a crampon.
  • From Mera Peak, you can see Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchanjunga, five 8,000-meter peaks.
