Mera Peak (6461m.) Climbing 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 and then establish a high camp on the glacier from where you will attempt the summit.

From the summit of Mera, one can see 5 of the 6 highest mountains in the world: Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyo. The standard route from the north involves little more than high altitude glacier walking. The ease of reaching this elevation may be its biggest danger but good weather and snow conditions are, of course, necessary for safety and success. The west and south faces of the peak offer difficult technical routes. This is a great trek and climbs in an ancient land where Sherpas still graze yaks, cook on yak dung fires and live a very simple life. Porters are employed to make our trip more enjoyable and culturally interesting as well as to 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 challenging. 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 6000m. This is the perfect trip for a mountaineer who wants to make the most of his / her Himalayan adventure by living in a truly 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 acclimatizing to new altitudes to increase the safety and comfort levels. We cover basic mountaineering skills on the glacier prior to your climb.
