About Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak climbing is officially the highest climbing trekking peak in the Himalayan state of Nepal and the Mera peak is a breathtaking challenge and provides climbers with the most exciting adventures among most other climbing peaks in Nepal and It is a tough climb but it has often been visited along the Makalu Barun National Park.

Mera Peak climbing offers amazing views on your clambering to the top, you enjoy some of the most unusual landscapes ever beheld, the Mera peak just out from the south of Everest & totally captures the isolated valleys of Hinku & Hongku; the ascent is done from the Mera La pass at {5415m} on the northern face which is a link to the less inhabited valleys of Hongku & Hinku.

Mera peak is a formidable mountain but one doesn’t need to be a veteran climber to attempt this peak, it’s a straight forward peak technically but the snow & a whole lot of crevasses tend to consume time as you head up the peak. This peak beckons all seasoned & amateur climbers who dare to dream & love taking up a challenge for that special sense of something achieved.

Mera peak expedition begins with a scenic flight to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla wonderfully placed right in the heart of the Khumbu region and as you have to cross the Charpate Himal and Zatra La Pass and once you are ready you cross Zatrwa La which lies near Hinku valley. Subsequently, you pass through many unspoiled forests of rhododendron and descend down to the Hinku Khola and follow the river to the north towards upper Hinku then, you finally reach Tangnag, the river valley that offers impressive views of the west face of Mera peak and Peak 43 and you have at least one day for necessary acclimatization and once you are ready, you head up to the moraine of the Dig Glacier, and do a steep hike down to Khare at (5,045m).

Mera Peak Climbing continues further and set to lower base camp at around 5,300m near the 'Mera La' Pass at (5,415m) on the 'Hongku' and again you get some days for acclimatization and explore some of the areas around and move to a high camp on the edge of the Mera Glacier, where you again have time for further acclimatization. From this place, you get lovely panoramic views of the east Kangchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse, to the north Everest and Lhotse, & towards the north east of Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega.

Mera Peak Climbing is a high-altitude trek and climb in Nepal and trekkers need to be physically fit and familiar with the use of an ice-axe and crampons. OUTFITTER NEPAL provides instructions to those who need guidance in the use of certain trek equipment’s for which a program of instruction be given at Kathmandu and at base camp near Khare which is a part of our Mera peak climbing venture. These trainings are a useful instructional process only for team members who need it to be familiar with climbing techniques before heading for the exciting summit to Mera Peak. The overall focus is to avoid glitches & ensure that the summit is a wonderful success.

The climb to the summit of Mera starts gradually and much will depend on snow and general weather conditions, the central summit will soon appear above the head of a wide glacier flanked by two ridges. We climb the centre of this over open snowfields and avoid crevasses. The route then swings south-east, eluding below and to the east of the left-hand ridge before turning back right towards the main summit ridge of Mera. Mera is an amalgamation of three summits; the highest is our goal.

We reach this by following a classic snow-ridge to just below the final wall that guards the top. This short steep snow slope is easily climbed but a big push is required to climb the last 50 metres. Your reward, however, is a feeling of rapturous triumph as you survey the brilliant panorama from the summit. After putting our video cameras on overdrive & getting the best pictures on offer besides enjoying the lovely views, we descend by the same route back to our campsite below Khare.
