J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing first climbed Mera Peak Expedition in 1953. However, the proper ascent of Mera Peak Mountaineering Tour 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. 
Trekking to Mera Peak Route Map is considered more adventurous and less challenging than other trekking peaks with little or no mountaineering experience. The adventurous climb of Mera Peak Trek is rewarded with breathtaking views of world’s towering mountains including Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. Makalu 8485m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m and other surrounding high mountains in Everest region of Nepal.

Mera Peak Itinerary:

The Mera Peak Permit Cost and Itinerary starts with a short scenic Mountaineering flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and the entire Everest of Nepal. After landing at the airstrip of Lukla, we commence our pre-climbing excursion that heads through less crowded terraced landscapes, untouched valleys and charming villages inhabited by Sherpa people. 
Before reaching Base Camp of Mera Peak Expedition, our highest trekking peak heads through frozen waterfalls, dense forests, paddy fields and amazing glaciers with stunning views of high mountain ranges. 
Our Base Camp of Mera Peak Mountaineering is set up at 5300 meters. From Mera Base Camp, we climb higher to reach the high camp before attempting a final climb to the summit of Mera Peak. After being fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gears, we will take the weather conditions into consideration and follow our footsteps on the guidance of our experienced climbing experts. 
We will overcome several technical climbing sections and head towards the top of Mera Peak Tour. Our tedious Mera peak climb to the pinnacle is rewarded with a sensational and a panoramic view of Everest, Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Baruntse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Kangtega and other snow-capped peaks in the Everest region.
Here, We will spend short and quality time at the apex of Mera Peak Tour and descend following the same route back to Mera Peak Base Camp. Having successfully achieved the Mera Peak Difficulty, our return Mera peak trek gradually descends back to Lukla and from there a flight back to Kathmandu.Note: Generally, Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition concerns for the highest trekking tour i.e. climbing of Central Mera Peak 6461m and other two faces of Mera Peak – North Mera (6476m) and South Mera (6064m), we can also operate several other trips for these faces as per your special request.

Mera Peak Difficulty
Mera Peak is officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal. The altitude you ascend is great enough to suffer you with altitude sickness. Not only the altitude; the snowy surroundings will make your climb really difficult. The weather also remains unstable at such heights. A perfectly good day can suddenly turn into blizzards. The last section of the peak is a real adventure. The final 600-700m requires climbing through snow, rocks, and ice. This part of the trek may require the use of basic mountaineering tools. Overall, Mara Peak Climbing is a strenuous and physically demanding one. However, with adequate preparation and physical fitness you can conquer this towering peak. The success of this trek also largely depends upon the preparation, trekking route, trekking seasons, trekking gears, etc.

Mera Peak Climbing Season
Peak Climbing in Nepal is a seasonal activity. Autumn and Spring are the best season for climbing most of the mountains in Nepal. Autumn Season (September, October & November) and Spring Season (March, April & May) is the perfect time for this Mera Peak Climbing. During these months, the days will be sunny and warm in the Himalayas. The skies will be clear and the atmosphere of the Himalayas will be alluring. Thus, we can have great views of the mountains. Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who don’t like hustle and bustle during the journey also can choose December, January, and February months for this trip. Monsoon season (June, July, and August) will be pretty difficult time for climbing in the Himalayas because of monsoon.

Mera Peak Climbing Permit

If you choose the route that passes through Hinku Valley, you need to buy Local Area Permit (20$), and Makalu Barun National Park Entry Permit. If you follow the Everest Base Camp Route from Lukla, you must buy Local Area Permit and Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit. Both National Park Entry permits cost NPR 1500 for the people of SAARC countries and NPR 3000 for the foreign Nationals.

Mera Peak Climbing Gears
You must be very attentive while packing Mera Peak Gears. It is very important to go through the checklist. Mera Peak is located in an isolated region. Therefore, it is must to include all the basic mountaineering gears. Mind that you must not miss any of them and you should also not make you pack unnecessarily heavy. Unlike regular high altitude treks, you need to pack some basic mountaineering equipment. Crampons, carabineers, belay device, harness, ascenders, ice axe, trekking poles, climbing ropes, headlights, ascenders, sleeping bag, U-lock, oxygen, survival blankets, insect repellent etc are some of the basic gears.

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.
