Trek on the Mera Peak would be a great experience for all the trekkers from the world. Imagine yourself at the top of the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Mera Peak (6,461 meters/ 21,190 feet). The experience is unlike any other. But, you don’t have to just imagine. Come experience it with us! From the Mera Peak’s summit, your jaw will drop as you see several peaks that extend above the 8000-meter mark: Mount Everest (8,848 meters), Lhotse (8,516 meters), Cho Oyu (8,201 meters), Makalu (8,481 meters), and Kanchenjunga (8,586 meters). As a matter of fact, these are 5 of the 6 highest mountains in the world. As you can see, Mera Peak is one of the absolute best trekking peaks in the world for climbing.
Mera Peak is situated within Sagarmatha National Park, just next to Makalu-Barun National Park. The expedition begins with a few days of trekking through the Everest region to acclimatize, which builds anticipation for the climb. We stay in guesthouses owned by Sherpas. Experience their awesome hospitality and mountain-based lifestyle. After these days of trekking, we have ascended to the Hinku Valley, setting up our temporary home at High Camp (5,780 meters/18,963 feet). That night, we stay in a tent near Mera Glacier. Feeling the strong breeze over the glacier, which rattles the tent, your adventurous spirit rises.
At this point, you are once again briefed on how to use all the climbing equipment. By now, we are properly acclimatized and the last thing to do before the summit is becoming confident in how to use all the gear. No worries, we will help you with that. We leave for the summit early in the morning to ensure the best weather.
From the top, you can see not only the peaks mentioned before but also beyond them, into the remote valleys of Tibet and Nepal. It is the most magnificent view – rugged, majestic mountains above you, below you, and in every direction. Smiles on our faces, we snap some photos and congratulate each other. After some time at the top, we descend gradually, taking the same route back to Lukla as we came.
Our Mera Peak Climbing itinerary has been designed by veteran climbers and is managed with utmost consideration to safety. We ensure that this package adheres to protecting your comfort and well-being. We do this by ascending slowly, and not spending too long at too high of altitudes.
In addition, Mera Peak Climbing can be experienced by adventurers of all levels. Do not let the idea of climbing a peak scare you away. It is not technical climbing but you will be adequately trained and guided before and during the summit.
Climbing is most possible during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). During the Spring, there is a bit more color and all the mountain flowers are blooming, and in the Autumn months, the skies are generally clearer. Mera Peak Climbing doesn’t require a high level of fitness. It is possible to do by a moderate fitness with acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the trek with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.

It is best to take it slow to prevent altitude sickness. The level of fitness necessary for our treks varies depending on the Mera Peak Trekking and Climbing. On average, expect to walk an average of 5-6 hours per day while on the trail. Generally, this Peak can be Climbed with an average level of fitness.

In case of medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance. You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
Best Time to Travel
The peak seasons for traveling in Nepal are during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November). These times provide the best scenery and clearest skies, but of course they are a little more crowded than the off-season. It is possible to climb during the Winter (December to February), but you will face cold temperatures. It is not possible to climb during the monsoon season (June to August).
Flights to and from Lukla can be delayed due to weather conditions and delays may last up to several days. It is best to book flights to and from Kathmandu with a several day margins to avoid missing a flight back to your home country. If flights go smoothly, we will help arrange activities for you during your margin days. In the case that you have a tight schedule and the flights out of Lukla are delayed, it is possible to take a helicopter flight back to Kathmandu for an additional cost. Again, we recommend added an extra day to your arrival and departure dates to prevent any problems.
