Mera Peak

Dubbed as the highest trekking peak in Nepal- Mera Peak (6476m) presents a unique challenge in the Himalayas. Mera Peak Climbing explores the southern part of the Everest region and the Makalu region. The daunting task of scaling the peak is coupled with the remarkable natural riches of Makalu Barun National Park. Moreover, the climb also mixes captivating scenery with the Himalayan terrain on the way to the summit. Mera Peak is more of a stepping stone to those who wish to conquer higher Himalayas in Nepal.

Mera Peak is located in the remote eastern fringes of Makalu Barun National Park. The peak is one of the most famous peaks in Nepal and sees a fair share of climbers each year. Similarly, Mera Peak is more popular for the scenic rewards which outweigh the challenges of the climb. As such, it is regarded as one of the easier peaks to climb and does technical climbing skills. Like most trips in the Everest region, the journey to climb Mera Peak also begins with a flight to Lukla. From here, you head to the Mera Base Camp and scale the peak before returning to Lukla.

Starting from Lukla, you follow the Dudh Koshi River downstream to Panggom. Further, you reach Kothe and continue to Thangnak. As you enjoy the views of Charpate Himal range, the trail takes you to the desolate region of Makalu Barun National Park at Khare. Then, you acclimatize with the altitude before joining the trail to High Camp. The ascent to the top of Mera Peak offers plenty of challenges as you savor the views of the nearby Himalayas. The summit, however, offers a breath-taking panorama of five of the highest mountains in the world, namely, Mt. Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8481m), and Cho Oyu (8201m). After the successful climb, you head back to Lukla via a different route across Zatrwa La Pass (4610m).

Experience Required

As the trip reaches an altitude of 6,476 meters, it is obvious for the climbers to be physically fir. Likewise, prior climbing experience or training can also be a great help for the climb. Climbers must also have the skill to use mountaineering equipment like crampons, rope, and ice-ax. Similarly, climbers must maintain a steady pace on the trip while acclimatizing with the altitude. Moreover, the autumn season (September to November) and spring season (March to May) is the ideal time to do the climb.
