Mera Peak Climb 18 days is a non-technical high-altitude trip in the Everest region of Nepal best suited for both professional and inexperienced climbers. We organize the Mera Peak climbing trip from Kathmandu, flying to Lukla and trekking all the way to Khare, after having an extra day for acclimatization at Khare we continue our trip to Mera peak base camp. After training and acclimatization, we will summit the top of the amazingly charming peak. 

The captivating and thrilling Mera Peak (6476m) is a scenically stunning mountain and is popular among climbers and trekkers as it is the highest trekking peak in Nepal in the Everest region. Lying proud and high on the edge of the famous Khumbu Region and dominated by Mt. Everest, conquering Mera peak is an opportunity for all physically fit adventure lovers. As you lift your eyes upon conquering Mera and the mighty frieze of the world's 8000-meter Mountains- Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, and many other peaks with the clouds looming above will truly be a sight to behold. 

The Mera Peak climbing commences following a short flight to the tiny airstrip of Lukla that is thrilling during the entire 40-minute flight. A trek for days on the steep trails through the high and lovely valleys, we will eventually get to the area of Mera Peak. In terms of altitude, conquering the Mera peak is quite physically demanding. However, the climb on Mera Peak is not technically difficult as ascending snow slopes rarely exceed 35 degrees. The only qualification you need to ascend Mera peak is an excellent physical condition and an extrovert sense of adventure accompanied by zeal and enthusiasm.

We have put together the Mera peak itinerary carefully in order to allow gradual acclimatization for the climbers. Initially, the trail takes us through the virgin forests of the incredibly beautiful Hinku Valley, which is also an excellent place to stop for acclimatizing ourselves to the peak itself. Our unrivaled service, quality equipment, hygienic food, dedicated trekking staff, and an experienced leader will ensure that your Mera peak climbing trip will be a thrilling and adventurous memory in Nepal that will last a lifetime.
