Mera Peak Climbing (6,461m/ 21,190 ft) is popular as the highest peak climbing adventure in Nepal which is located in Khumbu (Everest) region which is the most popular trekking region in Nepal too. An expedition to Mera Peak climbing in Nepal is an exciting and awe-inspiring adventure once-for –a lifetime. The adventure seekers’ first choice is always Mera Peak summit but they must be physically fit. However,  from the summit of Mera Peak, one can celebrate the most stupendous view  of mighty snow-fed summits above 8000 meters including world highest mountain, Mt.Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and numerous other dramatic mountain panorama which is an unforgettable experience during your Mera Peak Climbing.

As other trekking trips in Khumbu region,  we begin Mera Peak climbing also from Lukla after a short and scenic flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla,  we start ascending to Namche Bazar which is a tourist and trade hub in Khumbu region. After we explore Namche Bazar with a day for acclamatization, we, then, trek to Tengboche and after few days of experiencing majesti Khumbu region, you will get closer to Mera Peak. Although this climbing is physically demanding, relatively it is not technically difficult to accomplish as ascending snow slopes rarely exceed 40 degrees.

An extrovert sense of adventure and a sound physical fitness are two inevitable qualifications of the climbers while scaling Mera Peak. Without gradual and proper acclimatization, it is very difficult to scale Mera Peak. Thus, we have designed itinerary and the arrangement of this adventure climbing technically to suit the stamina of the adventure enthusiasts ensuring complete safety. Before climbing Mera Peak, we enjoy the walk  via deep and unspoiled forest of Hinku valley which itself will be an amazing experience and also an excellent opportunity for acclimatization for the climb. We ensure you’re the most safety your trip a lifetime adventure as we always employ a well-equipped expedition team including the team leader during the climb. There are three different Mera Peak such as North Mera Peak (6476m), Central Mera Peak summit (6461m.) and South Mera Peak summit  (6064m.). Among them, we operate the expedition on Mera peak climbing Central peak climbing in Nepal.

As this adventurous trekking is based on Sagarmatha National Park and Khumbu region, the most popular trekking trails, and the experience of cultural heritage, flora and faunas, and the most astoundingly stunning view of world tallest Mountain View including Mt. Everest, the top of the world are the also other major highlights of this expedition. And finally, this adventure wraps up in Lukla and you fly back to Kathmandu.

How is the climbing Day? Do we start early in morning:

Obviously, the climbing day is the most significant day in this adventure trip. We have to be both physically and mentally committed and equipped to scale this peak. We begin our trip early in the morning at around 3 because we have to face strong blow of wind if we do not move earlier. We have to work hard for more than 8- 9 hours. If we follow this time schedule, we scale the summit at 9 and get back to Base Camp to have lunch. This scale is incredibly amazing and memorable.

Everest region is well covered by network. We can get local sim card and get access of network easily. Each lodge and guest house offers us Wi-Fi facility but for this we have to pay certain charge. In this way , we can connect our family and friends. In case of emergency, we report it to the guide or the leader and the leader will find the immediate measure to solve the problem.

Yes, you can charge your devices like cell phone and camera in every lodge or guest house you stay. But they charge you very little amount of money. It may be like between 100-200 Nepali rupees. We better recommend you to bring own back up or extra charged battery which will be more convenient.

We say ‘Yes’. We get hot shower all round the trip. This also costs extra money. This may varies from 2-7 dollars. But, we and our don’t allow you to take shower at the base camp because of probable crisis in the high altitude regarding health . Rather, we provide you a big bowl of hot water for your cleaning.

In order to avoid slow pace of the climber, the leader will frequently counsel to walk together because problem can be solved easily in a team. If such situation occurs, the leader will take care of those who walk slow and his assistants will take care of the others to make the trip less strenuous.

What about drinking water facility:

We are environmentally aware and our team as well. We don’t allow our clients use plastic bottle for carrying water in the mountain. Rather, we request you to bring nelgene metal water bottle which you can fill with boiled water. Every guest house provides boiled water which is safe to drink. This is provided without any extra charge.

Do I need the travel insurance for emergency to join the climb of Mera peak:
