Trip Detail Information

Mera peak climbing begins with an exciting flight to Lukla, ranked number one in the world’s most dangerous airport lists. The trail passes through Paanch Pokhari, another delightful place to be at. The high camp is set at 5800m so that the summit day is shortened and enough acclimatization is achieved.

Mera Peak provides a breathtaking panoramic view and consists of peaks known globally. Five spectacular 8000m peaks are visible. To name them, Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8210m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), and Kanchenjunga (8586m) Mountain. Trekkers can experience the Zatrwa Pass if they prefer to go the extra mile and feel the beauty of the Himalayas up close and personal.

Safety Tips

Mera peak poses a little technical difficulty because its altitude crosses 6000m. The technical requirement is fundamental and does not demand many mountaineering tools. It is an exhausting climb if trekkers do not acclimatize at the high camp sufficiently. Safety and mountaineering gears are necessary to have while climbing Mera Peak. A portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) or oxygen cylinder provides sufficient air to breathe during the time of need.

A comprehensive medical kit and a satellite phone for communication will facilitate the rescue team in case of any emergencies. The most challenging part of the climb consists of a slope of almost 40 degrees of snow/ice. Prior mountaineering experience will help the climbers to lead the team in such harsh situations.

Accommodation

Teahouses are available throughout the trek to the high camp, which is warm and comforting. All-season sleeping bags and the tent are also an alternative to stargazers who would love to stare into infinity at night. Some teahouses do not allow single-room accommodation during the summit season. These teahouses serve Nepalese, Tibetan, Indian, and the more common continental cuisines. The Sherpa community exhibits the richness and diversity within the culture and conducts welcome and farewell programs.

Mera Peak Climbing Difficulty

Mera Peak Climbing’s degree of difficulty ranges from moderate to complex. The trial will be simple, and there will be no steep and rugged ascents along the trek. Although With a height of 6,476m, you should be aware of the potential difficulties. The elevation gain during the trek will be slightly strenuous before reaching the summit of Mera Peak. Similarly, the high camp will be at a height of 5800m. Therefore you will have to exert more effort on the trek to reach the summit.

Because altitude can create issues such as altitude sickness, you should take precautions to avoid it. Recently, there have been a few changes surrounding the glaciers of the Everest region due to global warming. It might be risky to trek above the split iceberg. Aside from that, everyone, from beginners to professional trekkers, can climb Mera Peak.
