The Highest Trekking Peak 6,654m of Nepal
Mera Peak is the highest of the permitted "Trekking
Peaks" in Nepal. The trek begins by flying into the
heart of the Himalaya to the village of Lukla. From here
you will cross a high pass into a remote valley and steadily
acclimate, as you have to move toward base camp & establish
a high camp on the glacier from where you will attempt the
You will have excellent views of Makalu,
Everest, Lhotse and other spectacular peaks. This is a great
trek and climb in an ancient land where Sherpas still graze
yaks, cook on yak dung fires and live a very simple life.
Porters to make our trip more enjoyable and culturally interesting
will carry our food and equipment.
By its standard route from the Mera La, the ascent is technically
straightforward; however, after a heavy fall of snow or
when the maze of crevasses are open, the way can be long
and demanding. Far and above the most rewarding aspect of
a trip to Mera is a chance to venture into a little-visited
and as yet unspoiled region of Nepal where the hillsides
are still densely forested and a need to be self-sufficient
is essential. There is also, of course, the pleasure of
going above 6.000m.
There are many approaches to Mera; some
are easy and some require the crossing of high and difficult
passes, making a trek to the peak a real mountaineering
adventure for which effort is rewarded with spectacular
scenery and ultimately one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal.
This is the perfect trip for the mountaineer
who wants to make the most of his / her Himalayan adventure
by living in unique culture and climbing in traditional
Himalayan alpine style.
A Sherpa guide (Sirdar), cook team will
support your trek and climb. We spend a significant amount
of time acclimating to new altitudes to increase safety
and comfort levels. We cover basic mountaineering skills
