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.

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.

Amazing Mera – AUSTRALIASummited on 2013 AUSTRALIAN CLIMBING TEAM [Australia]
We have had a 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 with 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 the next trekking or peak summit trip.
Mera Peak Adventure – WOW!!! – GermanyErnst, Friedrich, Hans, Heinrich, Hermann, Karl, Otto, Paul, Walter and Wilhelm [Germany]
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.
Safe trip Nepal before Earthquake – FranceAlexander, Christian, Daniel, Dennis and Jan [France]
We are regular clients for Nepalese; we usually go there to spend one month of 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 nature. When I compare European alps to the Himalaya, they are just 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 – ItalyDieter, Günter, Hans, Horst, Jürgen and Klaus [Italy]
I 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.
