Mera Peak Climbing - Candid Expedition

At 6476 meters, Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. This Mera Peak Climbing is a physically demanding but straightforward climb. It offers a fantastic climbing experience of a lifetime. This climbing expedition to Mera is graded as an Alpine PD difficulty level. It suits best to all fit and experienced trekkers and amateur climbers. We customize the climbing training course at the Mera base camp. The training is designed to boost climbing techniques. It covers glacial walk, rope fixing, ascending, and descending. Such activity ensures the required climbing skills. This climbing training increases the confidence level to scale the summit safely.

43 Out of 54 in 2015 and 31 Out of 39 in 2016 climbed the Mera peak. Exceptional 100% Summit in Spring 2017 Ten out of Ten on Top. Above 90% in 2018, 2019,  2022 and 2023. We have successfully run 4 groups to Mera top in this spring 2023.

Superb Panoramic View from the Summit

Our crafted climbing itinerary ensures proper acclimation. We begin the Mera peak climbing via the remote region. We ascend through the less-trodden Panch Pokhari trail to Hinku after the Lukla flight. We set our high Camp at 5800 meters to shorten the summit day. High Camp on a vertical rock provides some degree of shelter. The panoramic view seen from Mera High Camp is genuinely breathtaking. Ultimately, the climbing summit day starts early in the morning. We approach the Mera Peak summit through the northern route. This is a steady climb with an outstanding mountain panorama in sight. The view from the summit is one of the finest in the Himalayas. Superb five spectacular 8000-meter peaks are observable. Mt. Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and Nuptse all around. We trek out the shorter route via Zetra la to Lukla.

Mera Peak Climbing - Accommodation, Food, Safety, and Gear

We stay in a combo of tea houses and tents on the Mera peak climbing trip. Trekking up to Khare, accommodation will be in the tea house. During the climbing duration, we stayed at tented camping. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner while on the trip. We ensure all personal and group climbing gear in the Mera expedition. Equipment includes climbing boots, crampons, harnesses, Carabiners, Jumar, etc. No need to hire or buy any climbing gear to climb Mera Peak with us. We carry Oxygen and a medical kit as a safety backup. Satellite Phone in case of emergency on this climbing trip to Mera.

Climbing Difficulty, Cost, and Best Time

We hike the rugged terrain to the highest trekking peak of Mera in three weeks. With uncountable ups and downs, so-called Nepalese flats offer excellent acclimatization. No prior climbing experience is required to join this Mera peak climbing. A fit person can join this climbing with pre-trek physical preparation. The climbing difficulty level depends on several factors. That includes the weather conditions, physical fitness, and adaptation to the thinner air at high altitudes.

The best months are from March to May in spring and October to November in autumn. We offer competitive and inclusive climbing costs. Such costs include all meals, permits, Lukla flights, guides and crew with their insurance, etc.

Join Mera Peak Nepal - Spring and Autumn of 2024

    Great Mera Peak Summit

    In early April 2023 I trekked to Mera Peak with Mountain Monarch. This was my second trip with MM and it was as enjoyable and successful as my previous trip (Everest Photography Trek). Hiking up the Hinku Valley is quite different than hiking on the Everest side, less traveled and not as developed. Very different treks and both worth doing. Many thanks to Pradip and Ngima Nuru for arranging and guiding our trek to Mera summit.

    Thanks to the Mountain Monarch staff for a perfect trip to the summit of Mera. I highly recommend MM, and my next trip to the Himalayas will surely be with Pradip and the team. Every detail was meticulously planned and worked out perfectly. Climbing boots, down jackets, and sleeping bags, all of good quality, were provided as part of the package. This made it possible for us to go on this adventure without the hassle and expense of costly equipment. I appreciate the policy of one porter to one trekker, which provides decent working conditions for the porters and has no extra cost for us compared to other companies. (Normally, companies only have one porter for every two trekkers)Special thanks to Dawa, our Sherpa guide, who not only was an excellent guide providing us with all needed mountaineering guidance but also shared his vast knowledge about local culture, history, and vegetation.

    Climbed Mera at the age of 70 with Mountain Monarch

    In April 2022, I joined a group with Mountain Monarch going to Mera Peak with four other independent trekkers. The owner Pradip had assembled an excellent crew of guides and porters for our adventure journey above 6000 meters. Everyone went out of their way to ensure the safety of each participant. Everything was well planned from Kathmandu to Kathmandu, with nothing to worry about. All equipment, down jackets, sleeping bags, high altitude boots, and crampons were of excellent quality and included in the price; a hassle-free adventure. Our guide Nima and assistant, Pasan, were proficient in guiding us up to the top and safely back down. I was provided excellent support in helping me make it to the summit at the age of 70 years. In addition, my guide sometimes assisted me in completing the trek and climb. I would definitely recommend MM to anyone planning a trip to Nepal. I know my next tour to Nepal will be with them.
