Mera Peak climbing
Mera Peak (6,654m) is the highest among all of the permitted "Trekking Peaks" in Nepal. Mera Peak (6,654m) climbing offers magnificent views of world highest mountains like Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu and many others itself rise to the south of Everest. Far and above the most rewarding aspect of a trip to Mera is a chance to venture into a little-visited and as yet pristine region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested and the villages are isolated.
This trek begins by flying into the heart of the Himalaya to the village of Lukla. From here you will cross a high pass walk into a remote valley and steadily acclimate, as you have to move toward base camp & establish a high camp on the glacier from where you will attempt the summit up to 6,000 meter from the sea level.
Mera peak (6,654m) climbing is an adventurous trek and climb in a prehistoric land of Sherpa where these people still graze yaks, cook on yak dung fires and live a very simple life. Porters will carry our food and equipment to make our trip more enjoyable and culturally interesting. Through its standard route from the Mera La, the ascent is technically straightforward; however, after a heavy fall of snow or when the maze of crevasses are open, the way can be long and demanding.
There are many approaches to Mera; some are easy and some require the crossing of high and difficult passes, making this trek to the peak a real mountaineering adventure in which effort is rewarded with spectacular scenery as it is ultimately one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal.
This is the perfect trip for the mountaineer who wants to make the most of his / her Himalayan adventure by living in unique culture and climbing in traditional Himalayan alpine style.
A Sherpa guide (Sirdar), cook team will support your trek and climb. We spend a significant amount of time acclimating to new altitudes to increase safety and comfort levels. We cover basic mountaineering skills on the glacier prior to your climb.
