Overview of Mera Peak Climbing

First ascent in May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing. Mera Peak (6654m), officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal, lies in the southeast of Mt Everest region through the big forest in Hinku valley and comparatively less settlement. The trekking route to Mera is not a regular route of trekking. Trekking through Hinu and Hong Drangkas Valley with the wooded forests it be interesting for trekking as the area is less crowded than in regular trekking zones, such as Annapurna, Langtang, or Everest.

The climb to Mera Peak is technically straightforward. Climbing gears like crampons, ropes, ice axe, and all the basic mountaineering equipment are necessary. All Nepal Hiking has carefully crafted this trip keeping in mind a place for proper acclimatization, pace, and rest before reaching the Base Camp. ANH supplies sufficient fuel and food with necessary mountain gear and enough manpower with technical knowledge. Our climbing guides are experienced with advanced training from NMA and are also supported by other Sherpa crews.

The views from the Mera Peak summit are one of the finest views in the entire trekking peaks of Nepal. There are views of Kanchanjungha, Makalu, Chamlang, and Baruntse in the east, Cho-Oyu, Amadablam, and Kangtega in the west, and Everest in the North. Similarly, one can also view the Lhotse /Nuptse ridge. The Mera Peak climbing trip starts with a 40-minute mountain flight to Lukla. The Zatwa La pass at 4200 mtrs could be the first challenge for acclimatization. In Khare, you will have a couple of surrounding day trips to get used to the altitude.

    • In order to climb Mera safely, the weather needs to be stable and dry. Even if it is warm, strong winds can make climbing very dangerous. Also, any rainfall at this altitude falls as snow, and breaking tracks in this doubles the difficulty of the climb. We recommend climbing between October and November or between March and May. Both these periods generally bring long periods of stable weather and, although the temperatures at the top are still incredibly cold, it is bearable.

    • This is a high-altitude climb and if you are not an experienced trekker then it would be a bad idea to climb Mera Peak as a first high-altitude trek. Or if you are physically strong and trekked to other high-altitude places like Everest base camp, then climbing Mera Peak is a realistic next challenge.
      It is designated by the Nepal Mountaineering Association as a trekking peak. Their criteria for this, however, is only that you need to be able to use crampons and an ice axe to reach the summit.

      This can give the impression that Mera Peak is not difficult. This is not true.  At 6476m it is the highest trekking peak in Nepal, and this brings all the challenges of trekking at a really high altitude. These include the possibility of extreme weather conditions, and of course, altitude sickness.

      If you haven’t already been to altitudes above 4000m without any problems then you should probably avoid Mera Peak. In total, you will be at, or above, 5000m for 4 days, and unless you acclimatize well this could easily trigger altitude sickness.


    • As a trekking peak, climbing Mera Peak requires a cheaper climbing permit (US$70-250, depending on the season), rather than the pricey expedition permit required for peaks about 7,000 m. As part of this trek also passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, a permit for here is also required. Your climbing company will organize these permits for you.

    • The Mera Peak tour takes in everything. You begin by trekking through lush valleys, before heading higher up into farmland and rhododendron forests. From there, you’ll come across beautiful lakes and rivers, before finding yourself at the base of Mera. The summit is unforgettable as you get a magnificent view that includes Everest and Lhotse!
