Mera Peak at an altitude of 6476m is one of the popular climbing destinations among climbers visiting Nepal. It is an excellent peak for people to climb in the Everest region. The peak is both interesting and challenging to trek, explore, and have sight of high mountain ranges around the region. It is challenging for beginners, and great for training, for experienced climbers before trying to climb the difficult peaks in the region. Climbing Mera Peak demands a tough mentality with good physical fitness levels. Lukla is a starting point of Mera Peak. It (Lukla) is around 35 minutes away from Kathmandu in flight. After passing several ups and downs for some days from Lukla you reach the beautiful area of Mera. In comparison to other peaks, Mera Peak is not that technical but it demands more stamina from new climbers.
Our first destination towards the Mera Peak leads us to the remote and pristine valley of Hinky. The unspoiled area is great to view beautiful terraced fields, lush green forests, and more. Then you will make your way to the village of Khare at 5045 meters altitude. You will be passing rivers along with the glaciers which will be just perfect to prepare you for a wonderful climb.
After the entire walk from Lukla, you will climb to the base camp at 5350m and high camp at 5780m. You will then make the final day push to reach the top of the Mera peak at 6476m. The panoramic view from the summit is one of the most loved views by the climbers. The experience at the peak keeps the trekker spellbound with a view of Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu which are some of the best 8,000m that can be seen in the region. Many other high mountain peaks of Nuptse (7855m) and Chamlang (7319m) will also surround you and keep your eyes busy. Our return trip will be through the beautiful Zatra La Pass which is a plus to the return trip to Lukla. You can experience a wonderful time exploring the famous Sherpa cultures and traditions of the region.

As we have stated earlier, the Mera peak can be divided into three main peaks. The central peak is said to be the easiest and the made for beginner climbers. 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.
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 considered to be the easy side of peak climbing in Nepal. Many climbers going for the expedition to reach the summit of Mount Everest choose the Mera peak climb for a warm-up. It is like an acclimatization and mountain climbing experience before facing the massive weight of climbing the Everest. 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.
Mera Peak is located at the Makalu Barun national park. Established in 1991 AD, the park houses many wild species and is an extension to the famous Sagarmatha national park. It covers a massive 1500 square Kilometer range and holds many rare species of animals and plants. From the famous Red panda, Snow Leopard, Clouded Leopard, and Red fox to the 300 species of birds with varieties in mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, the park has many ponds, lakes, rivers, and forests with multiple habitats for these species. The place is just a natures wonder at an altitude of 5000m above sea level.

Excellent service. I was delighted to stumble across this company while wandering through Thamel. Lo and behold the owner, Binod, happened to be from the town I was based in, and knew a lot of the people I was dealing with during my time visiting Dhading. A few milk teas and some friendly chat later and I was booking a peak climb for Mera peak in the Hinku valley for May 2013. Binod is a charming and personable character and has your best interests at heart. He has a friendly and capable team who put me at ease about the preparations involved in getting ready for the expedition. They were very helpful in procuring rental gear (essential when you are new to Thamel), arranging your climbing passes, sorting out guides, and transfers to and from hotels and airports at critical times were arranged with no extra charge to the cost of the package. I had an amazing 3 weeks trekking and climbing in Sagarmatha national park, with a few days R&R arranged by Binod in Pokhara at the end to wind down. I felt in safe hands for the entire trip. I would highly recommend and would not hesitate to deal with this group again when (hopefully) I return to Nepal.
