Mera Peak located in the Everest region is regarded as one of the "Highest Trekking Peaks'' in Nepal. It has been measured as 6476 meters and is considered suitable for trekkers as it provides stunning vistas of numerous majestic mountains, including Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Everest (8848 m), Makalu (8463m) and other nearby mountains.
Mera Peak can be scaled with moderate climbing skills and needs basic climbing gear, such as an ice axe, climbing boot, ropes, crampon skills, and others. The classic mountains located nearby require exceptional mountaineering knowledge, training, and skills but it requires only your physical fitness, some basic knowledge, and desire.
To reach Mera peak you will follow the same route to Everest for the first day, i.e the route from Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) to Lukla Airport, and then you will traverse anticlockwise until you reach Khare. The whole package to the route to Metra peak can be extended up to 18-20 days. It includes places like Lukla- Chutanga-Thuli Kharka-Gothey-Thagnag-Khare- Mera Base camp-Mera High Camp-Mera summit. You will be provided with ice climbing training by the local Sherpas at Khare before your ascent. This package follows the following itinerary.
Best season for climbing Mera Peak
Mountain climbing is always made easier and possible by seasons. But an adventurous mountaineer tries to attempt the mountain in any of the seasons for the records. Moreover, the time you spend in the mountains will have an impact on you the difficulties of the highlands, and life in the mountains. You can ascend the mountain more easily when the weather is good. The ideal months for climbing Mera Peak are spring and autumn, March-May, and October-November. Despite the cold, the weather stays consistent and the views are typically clear at this time of the year.
Route difficulty for Mera Peak climbing
According to the alpine grading system, Mera Peak is classified as a moderate or slightly difficult climb and suggests there is some technical climbing and tough glacier terrain to negotiate. It is suggested to be slightly difficult because it is steep and glacier changes may occur. Furthermore, climbing Mera Peak requires excellent physical fitness, but it is not that you need to be completely technical. If you have prior climbing expertise it would be a big plus. On some parts of the trail, you must utilize a harness, ropes, and crampons.
There are multiple climbing mountains in the Everest region. Like other mountains in the region, Mera Peak requires a local area permit. Seasonal price variations can be applied. The permits can be acquired from Kathmandu or local checkpoints on request to the authorities. The travel agent/agency will help you in getting your permits. All you need to submit is the necessary documents.

Since mountain climbing is always a challenge, the climb to Mera peak will also be adventurous for the climbers. Remember, the accent is not as tough as climbing Everest or other peaks, but anyway it is a mountain climb. Numerous Crevasses, rocks, tricky cliff trails, and snowy paths make the climb difficult. After breakfast in the morning, we'll start our preparation for the high camp. Putting up a high camp allows you breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks, including Cho Oyu, Makalu, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Everest. At Mera High Camp This Evening, We Stop. (Full Board overnight Tented Camp)
On day 2nd We get up around 2.30 AM because this day is a summit day. The group will put on their climbing gear after breakfast and tie themselves to a rope before ascending. A well-acclimated group can travel from the high camp to the central summit of Mera Peak in three to four hours. This excursion, which extends by 1-2 hours, will be more challenging than the rest of the climb. The group's overall activities will be decided upon by the trip leader. As you ascend, stunning views will be seen from the summit of Mt. Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, Kangchenjunga, Nuptse, Lobuche, and Chamlang. After the successful attempt at the mountain, you will descend to the high camp and stop for the food and hot soup. Further, the team will head back to Khare for the complete rest. It is an Extended But Fruitful Day! (Full Board Is Offered While Having A Tented Camp Overnight)
