Trip Information

Mera Peak (6,654 m) is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal. It stands to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas.

J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing made the first successful ascent of Mera Peak on 20 May 1953. The route they used is still the standard route. There are many other routes to the peak, but none of them are easy. Some of them require crossing very high and difficult passes. This leads to a true mountaineering experience. In the end, all efforts and hard work is paid off with spectacular scenery as Mera provides one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal.

Mera Peak offers a panoramic view of Chamlang, Kangchenjunga, Makalu, and Baruntse in the east and the peaks of Cho-Oyu, Ama Dablam and Kangtega to the west. Everest can be viewed to the north over the massive unclimbed south face of Lhotse and the Nuptse/Lhotse ridge. Under favorable conditions, it is possible to climb the peak and descend back on the same day.

Mera Peak Programme Description:

Introduction: At 6476m/21,246 feet, Mera Peak lies in the heart of the Himalayan Giants of Nepal and is considered the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Our expedition offers an opportunity to climb this fun and easier 6654m/21,000 foot peak, located in a more remote area of the Khumbu region in Nepal in a relatively short amount of time. The summit affords some of the best views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu that can be seen anywhere in the Himalaya.

  • We teach you everything you need to know about climbing during the trip to safely ascend this fun and higher trekking peak 
  • Mera Peak could qualify you for Cho-Oyu and if you do well on the spring trip, you could transfer to our Cho Oyu expedition directly.

  • The style of climbing is cautious and well-timed, with excellent leadership, organization, Sherpa climbers, cooks and waiters, tasty food, the best equipment, individual tents for each member in base camp, a full kitchen in base camp, two camps on the mountain, 1000s of meters of fixed line, hundreds of rock, ice and snow anchors, top-quality high altitude tents and high altitude stoves, expedition mix gas, and full safety equipment and extensive general medical kit.

  • A great expedition to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, or snow raquette after you climbs to the summit.

This expedition maximizes experience gained over countless Himalayan expeditions with a strong record of reaching the top of our world`s highest peaks. In addition to more than 25 Himalayan expeditions we have an intimate knowledge of the Nepalese officials who regulate the permit system, liaison officers, sherpas, cooks, yak drivers, and hoteliers/restaurateurs. 

  • Leader and staff: In Kathmandu, during the trek, in base camp and on the climb, our experienced staff is with you all of the way. Our helpful climbing Sherpas are some of the best.

Everest and several other well-known peaks such as Lhotse, Pumori, Island Peak, and Ama Dablam. The surrounding area is a world biosphere reserve`. Since 1976 the park has served to safeguard unique cultural, physical and scientific values through sound conservation principles Vegetation in the park varies from oak, pine and hemlock forests at lower altitudes to fir, juniper, birch and rhododendron woods at mid-elevations. Scrub and alpine plant communities with bare rock and glacier are found above the tree line. 22 species of rhododendron bloom during the spring (April and May) and much of the flora is colorful throughout the year. Wild animals most likely to be seen in the park are Himalayan tahr, goral, serow, musk deer, and well over 100 different bird species
  • Trek to base camp: This is one of the most beautiful treks in the world with ancient snow-free paths winding pastgreen terraced villages, rushing streams crossed on swinging bridges and each night a comfortable `teahouse` or a good tent pitched in a quiet pasture beneath the highest peaks in the world. Throughout the trek we eat delicious meals prepared by our skillful cooks. The trek will be moderately paced, allowing plenty of time for acclimatization, rest and site-seeing. The trek winds through some of the most spectacular mountain scenery on earth, where you can relax in exotic, friendly Sherpa villages.

  • Climbing Mera Peak: Trekking Mera Peak provides a great opportunity to get to a high altitude in a relatively short amount of time. The route is fairly straight forward from base camp to the summit with only a few sections of fixed rope near the top. We will take the opportunity to review climbing techniques, glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending, and descending on this relatively 'safe' mountain before going for the summit 

From base camp, we will move up a high snow pass called the Mera La and camp at 5400m/17,700 feet. The views here are stunning with a panoramic ring of Himalayan peaks surrounding the camp. From here we will continue up a short steep walk to Mera high camp at 5800m/19,000 feet, located near a rocky outcrop.

From the high camp it is possible to ascend to the summit in one day. The steady climb to the north summit (the true summit of Mera Peak) is rewarded with one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal, giving fantastic views of five 8000m peaks, Everest and Lhotse to the north, Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, and Cho Oyu to the west.
