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 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 a moderate climbing skill, and needs basic climbing gears, 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.
There are multiple climbing mountains in the Everest region. Like other mountains in the region, Mera Peak requires a local area permit. Seasonal variations in price 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 summit is the necessary documents.
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.
The price to climb Mera Peak fluctuates depending upon the season because the cost of a permit changes with the weather/season. The cost also varies depending upon the number of climbers, duration, modes of transportation,lodging, fooding, tax, gears, permit and many others. If the number is less the price can ascend and if the number is more the price descends. Selecting a group trip package is usually a smart choice. Your planned stay in the mountains will determine the total cost. So consult with the agency.
Since mountain climbing is always a challenge, the climb to Mera peak will also be adventurous to the climbers. Numerous Crevasses, rocks, tricky cliff trails and snowy paths make the climb difficult. After breakfast we will prepare for the High Camp. The surrounding provides a wonderful view of peaks, including Cho Oyu, Makalu, Nuptse, Chamlang and Everest. (Full Board overnight Tented Camp)
On day 2nd We get up around 2.30 AM because this day is a summit day. The group's overall activities will be decided upon by the trip leader. As you ascend up, stunning views will be seen from the summit of Mt. Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, and others. After the successful attempt of the mountain,you will descend to the high camp and stop for the food and hot soup. (Full Board overnight Tented Camp)
Day 3rd is the final day of 2N3D the Mera Peak Climbing. On this day the team will return from High Camp to the Base Camp and finally to Khare after having morning breakfast. In the clear weather you can view the early morning sunrise upon the mountains. Leaving High Camp behind us, we will head towards Khare. Remember,it is a 5-6/7 hours trek back to Khare.
