Trip Introduction;
Mera Peak is officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal that offers unlimited mountaineering adventure. Mera Peak is an attractive peak that rises to the south of Mount Everest and dominates the uninhabited valleys of Hongu and Hinku. The peak was first climbed in 1953 by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing. However, the proper ascent of Mera Peak was made in 1975 by French Climbers - Marcel Jolly, G. Baus and L. Honnis who climbed the North Peak following the same route as Roberts, but traversing along the connecting ridge to the further summit. Climbing of Mera Peak is considered more adventurous and challenging as the climb comprises of several technical sections that needs high level of mountaineering skills. Therefore previous climbing experience is highly recommended for those wanting to summit Mera Peak. The challenging climb of Mera Peak is rewarded with breathtaking views of world's towering mountains including Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. M0akalu 8485m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m and other surrounding high mountains in Everest region of Nepal.

Mera Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest of Nepal. After landing at the airstrip of Lukla, we start our pre-climbing journey that heads through less crowded terraced landscapes, untouched valleys and charming villages inhabited by Sherpa people. Before reaching at Mera Peak Base Camp, our trek heads through frozen waterfalls, dense forests, paddy fields and amazing glaciers with stunning views of high mountain ranges. Our base camp is set up at 5300 meters. From base camp, we climb higher up to reach the high camp before attempting a final climb to the summit of Mera Peak. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears, we will take the weather conditions into consideration and follow the footsteps and guidance of our experienced climbing experts. We will overcome several technical climbing sections and head towards the summit of Mera Peak. Our tiring climb to the summit is rewarded with sensational and panoramic views of Everest, Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Baruntse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Kangtega and other snow-capped peaks in the Everest region.  We will spend short and quality time at the summit, and descend following the same route back to base camp. Having successfully achieved the summit of Mera Peak, our return trek gradually descends back to Lukla and from there a flight back to Kathmandu.

Note: 
Generally, Mera peak climbing concerns climbing of Central Mera Peak 6461m and similarly there other two faces of Mera Peak – North Mera (6476m) and South Mera (6064m), we can also operate climbing trips for these faces as per your special request.

Reviews

Safe trip Nepal before Earthquake

We are regular clients for Nepalese; we usually go there at to spend one month vacation every year. This year we ascent Mera peak with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. Wow, I don’t even know what to say. Nepal is one of the countries, you just have to visit. It’s too difficult to try to explain how nice Nepalese people are, how wonderful is the nature. When I compare European alps to the Himalaya, they are just a little hills. 

Special thanks to our climbing leader who was our guide and of course very special thanks to our carrier.

This was our first, but not the last trip.

Mera Peak second attempt became successful

Myself and some of my friends have just returned from a fantastic trip to Nepal with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. Our trip Includes sightseeing tour around Kathmandu and Everest-Khumbu region trek then finally ascend Mera Peak. Our mountain guide took great care of us, our porters were fabulous and we had a wonderful time. THANK YOU SO MUCH ENTIRE TEAM.

Dieter, Günter, Hans, Horst, Jürgen and Klaus

Mera Peak Adventure – WOW!!!

We just returned from a 3 week adventure trip to Nepal through Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition, and had an amazing experience.  We spend most of the days on the Himalayas and did successful Mera peak climbing with a guide from Nepal Guide Treks. Would highly recommend their services - they are very professional, and make the entire trip very easy and straightforward. Would travel with them again in a heartbeat. Nepal is truly a beautiful, unique, and amazing country, and they rely on tourism.

Amazing Mera

We have had really amazing Mera Peak Climbing Experience in Nepal. Last year we summated Singu Chuli Peak with Nepal Guide and this year again came for Mera Peak Climbing. We are very familiar for Nepalese society, culture, Nepalese people and everything. We do recognize other trekking and climbing agencies but we choose Nepal guide to make our climbing experience successful. 

We would obviously contact them again for next trekking or peak summit trip.
