The Mera south peak is a moderate climb experience and takes a good toll on physical fitness and mind. The Mera North peak is said to be the most difficult and needs an experienced climber for climbing. The North peak of Mera shouldn’t be tried by any beginner climbers as it is highly technical. However, the Mera peaks are not life-threatening like the climb of Everest. The Mera peak climbing is an exercise many climbers do before they go for the extreme climbs of Island peak and Everest peak climb. The data rate in Mera peak is very rare, and not much recorded. The place is well suited for anyone who has just started with peak climbing activity.
Best Season for Mera Peak Climbing
The Season of Mera peak climbing differs from its different peaks. The central peak can be ascended throughout the year. The spring and autumn in the months of March to May and September to November are considered to be the best time to climb the three peaks. The central and southern peaks can be climbed in any day. However, we recommend you to avoid the monsoon seasons of June to August. The cold really gets the best out of the climb in the southern peak at this time. The north face is the most challenging should only be attempted in the spring and autumn. Especially in spring, where one can have clear skies and wonderful views of the surrounding Himalayan ranges.
Mera Peak Climbing is an easy Climb

A little bit challenging due to being at high altitude, this peak is perfect for beginners who do not have any climbing experience what so ever. However, any peak climbing is a tedious journey. So, mental and physical fitness s always a necessity.
