Trip Introduction:

Mera and Island Two Peak Climb adventure trip with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition is a great opportunity for adventure-seeking climbers who want to gain lifetime experience of multiple peaks climbing in Nepal.

Adventure-filled journey of two peaks climb; Mera Peak at 6461 meters and Island Peak at 6189 meters rewards with splendid views of Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Lhotse, Makalu, Lhotse Shar, Nuptse, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, and many other surrounding high peaks. Apart from the climbing periods, the trekking parts also provide amazement with exploring remote mountain valleys, authentic Sherpa culture, and traditional way of living etcetera.

Mera Peak – 6461mMera Peak is an attractive trekking peak in the Mahalangur Himalayan Range of Nepal inside Sagarmatha National Park. The peak was first ascended by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing on May 20, 1953.

The adventurous summit of Mera Peak climbing rewards by closing up the visibility of Mt. Everest 8848 m, Mt. Lhotse 8516 m, Mt. Makalu 8485m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8150, and many other snow-capped peaks. A Mera peak contains three major faces likely to climb; Mera North Face at 6476 meters, Mera Central Face at 6461 meters, and Mera Southern Face at 6065 meters.

Among all of them, the Mera Central peak at 6461 meters is popularly climbed. The rest of the faces are highly challenging, difficult to the summit, and not popular for climbing purposes. Island Peak – 6189 Island Peak also known as Imja Tse is a very popular trekking peak in Sagarmatha National Park.

An adventure seeker Eric Shipton and his team had seen a land of ice like an ice-ocean viewed from Dingboche then they took the peak’s name as Island Peak in 1951. The peak was later named by another name Imja Tse as well in 1983. However, Island Peak was first ascended by Charles Evan, Alf Gregory, Charles Wylie, and Tenzing Norgay in 1953 as a part of a warm-up climb prior to Mt. Everest Expedition.

The summit of Island Peak offers striking views of the world’s popular mountain ranges including Mt Everest, Mt Nuptse, Mt Lhotse, Mt Baruntse, Amadablam, and many other snow-capped peaks.

Mera and Island Peak (2 Peaks) Climbing Difficulty
Mera and Island Peak are two of the most beautiful Himalayan peaks that are located in the Khumbu Region. Geographically these two mountain peaks are very near. However, a mountain chain divides these two mountains. This trek and mountain expedition offers the most amazing mountain views and close insight of two of the remote valleys over the Himalayas. The real thrill is to cross the Amphu Labtsa Pass (5780m).
Though Mera is slightly higher than the Island Peak, Mera is technically more straightforward. Ropes, glacier crossing equipments, crampons and ice axes is must for trekking and you should not underestimate any of them.
The summit of the both peaks is a strenuous, technically challenging, and physically demanding one. Anyone wishing to undertake this challenging journey is suggested to prepare well and enough before the journey.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness.
Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.

Is Nepal Safe?
No doubt, Nepal is safe for trekking, hiking and mountaineering. The trekking trails are improvised and maintained as well. In many technical sections, ropes have been fixed.
The stains of the devastating earthquake have also been healing up and the decade long armed insurgency has also come to an end along with the implementation of the new constitution.
Tourist Help Desk and Tourism Information Centre have been established at the prominent tourist destinations. Moreover, you will receive a respectable welcome everywhere you go. The Nepali people are simple and kind to you and pay a wonderful hostage to you.
Don’t worry; Nepal is a safe country to visit.
