Mera Peak Climbing
2300

Overview

Mera Peak is the tallest trekking peak in Nepal; thus, it acts as an excellent alternative for peak climbing hubs. Mera Peak Climbing is probably the most rewarding, exciting, and mouthwatering journey with many spine chill adventures. Many Adventure junkies feel their raw adrenaline-charged as they ascend this magnificent peak.

Mera Peak lies in the Mahalangur section of the Everest region in the Solukhumbu district. The mountain has three dominant individual peaks, i.e., Mera South (6065 m), Mera Central (6461 m), and Mera North (6467 m).

You will summit the North mountain on this Mera Peak Climbing as other faces are more difficult to complete. However, the climb from the north also involves high elevation glacier walking, which is simple in comparison.

Climbing Mera Peak is the most outstanding achievement for adventure seekers as it is not an easy climb by any means. Summiting this mountain is suitable for beginner climbers, but there are a few technical sections along the way.

Mera Peak is not the most formidable mountain, but it is not the easiest as well. However, the panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, Ama Dablam, etc., look breathtaking from the summit.

The route of Mera Peak also passes through Makalu Barun National Park, allowing you to enter the dense vegetation. Moreover, you can see various animals like Indian leopard, golden jackal, red fox, black bear, red panda, and many more in these jungles.

The areas of the Khumbu region are inhabited mainly by the Sherpa community. These people follow Tibetan-influenced tradition and culture, so take your time and learn more about them and their lifestyle.

Climbing Mera Peak is a challenge due to some of the technical sections, but it is doable. With the right amount of preparation and training, you will reach the summit with ease.

There are a couple of routes to reach the summit, and the Nepal Eco Adventure itinerary takes you through the Panguam village trails. The journey is full of scenic views and adventure.

You begin the Mera Peak Journey on the third day of the itinerary by flying to Lukla from Kathmandu with a scenic view. Then you trek to Paiya the same day and stay the night there.

The next day you head to Panguam climbing the trails and passing through the forest. Later, you trek towards Nagindingma from there and spend a night in the Himalayas.

Continuing the walk, you head towards Cholem Kharka first, then to Khola Kharka. The journey keeps getting adventurous and harsher, with each gain in elevation.

Following the trails, you move to Kothe, then to Thaknak, and finally, halt at Khare. Your acclimatization day is held here in Khare, so take the time to rest and prepare for the trek.

After acclimatization, you now walk past glaciers and reach the base camp of Mera peak. From here, you climb up to High Camp and later summit Mera Peak, then descend back to Khare.

From Khare, you return to Kothe and take a new shorter route back to Lukla via Chetwarwa. On the eighteenth day, you fly back to Kathmandu and head home the next day, ending your Mera Peak Climbing with Nepal Eco Adventure.

The journey with us will be memorable, so do not miss out on this exciting adventure in the Khumbu region.

Best Season For Mera Peak Climbing

There are four times suitable for a visit in a year, and among them, spring and autumn are the prime seasons for Mera Peak Climbing. During these seasons, weather conditions are more stable with lesser obstruction. So, the paths are swarming with trekkers and climbers.

Likewise, winter is also preferable for Mera Peak Climbing, but the weather conditions are harsh. However, Climbing Mera Peak during the monsoon is not recommended, but if you want, then there are specific months to choose for the climb. Both these months are off-season time to climb Mera Peak.

Mentioned below is a summary of each season:

Spring

Spring is the start of a new era in nature, so everything is fresh and beautiful during this time. The forests begin to get their lost vegetation, and new buds grow in the paths.

It is the best time for trekking and climbing, with winter just finishing and slowly melting the snow. The weather remains firm, and the temperature is warm for Mera peak Climbing during spring.

March, April, and May are the spring time in Nepal. During these periods, the lower region temperature ranges around 10 degrees in the day, and it drops up to -4 degrees as the sun drops.

The temperature drops as you climb higher and reaches up to -30 degrees at the summit of Mera Peak. However, the temperature is bearable at this time, making the walk pleasant.

There is no snowfall during these months, but there are slight chances of rainfall during the first week of March. Overall, the skies are open with bright sun shining from above, making the views more explicit.

Perks of Climbing Mera Peak Climbing in Spring

  • The season of blossoming flowers and greenery
  • No chances of snowfall
  • Snug temperature, clear visibility, and stable weather

Autumn

Autumn is the top season for anyone looking forward to Mera Peak Climbing. Spring is also good, but autumn is always more preferable due to the climatic conditions.

Mera Peak Climbing is appealing and exciting during autumn, making it safe for adventures. Also, new flowers are blooming in the paths adding extra beauty to the trip.

The autumn air hits the Himalayas of Nepal in September, October, and November. However, the opening month begins after the departure of the monsoon, so dark clouds are still seen hovering for a few days.

But autumn grips by the mid of September, so the weather starts to turn and become more stable with no rainfall and snowfall. The temperature also gets snuggly and ranges about 12 degrees during the day in the lower region.

While the temperature drops to 6 degrees during night and mornings, you should also expect the degrees to drop in minus as you climb higher in the routes.

Perks of Mera Peak Climbing in Autumn

  • Clear and stable weather
  • Uncloudy visibility
  • Low chances of weather turnaround
  • Festive month in Nepal
  • The ideal temperature for peak climbing

Winter

Most people around the world like to remain under warm blankets during winter. But it is not the case for an enthusiastic and adventurous climber. Several ascenders prefer to climb Mera Peak during this season.

Winter is the coldest and driest time that lasts throughout December, January, and February. The chill season begins as the month transitions into December.

The climate is chilly but not cold in the first month, but as the second month begins, the region gets heavy snowfall and high temperatures in higher parts.

The temperature begins to drop with the advent of December, reaching from 5 to -20 degrees depending on the altitude. It even gets bone-chilling cold from Mera Peak Base Camp to summit ranges about -30 degrees.

Climbers can expect heavy snowfall in the upper parts of Khumbu throughout winter, but being a dry season there are no chances of rainfall at all. So, the trails are less slippery with easily watchful mountain views making winter doable.

If you cannot wait till autumn, then Mera Peak Climbing in winter is also possible. Some days are bearable and less cold during early December and late February. So, the effect of winter is more negligible at this time, making the climb doable with prior preparation and suitable clothing.

Perks of Mera Peak Climbing in Winter

  • Less crowded routes give you peace
  • You can easily find accommodations, flights, and packages.
  • There are discounts available on many services.
  • Dry and chill weather with undisturbed views.

Monsoon

In Nepal, summer and monsoon fall under the same season so, it brings many rain clouds during June, July, and August. These are the wettest times in the twelve months when heavy rainfall is average.

The trails are muddy during this season, but there is snow in higher parts. The weather is warm before the rainfall and revolves around 15 degrees during the day.

The temperature increases as you trek higher, but once rainfall begins, it drops. Monsoon might not be the best season for Mera Peak Climbing, but some climbers try their luck at this time.

If you visit the Khumbu region during earlier or later months, you get to see the clear skies and dust-free view of the mountains, the aftermath of rainfall. These scenarios are the best part of climbing Mera peak in the monsoon.

If you are desperate for Mera Peak Climbing in the monsoon, then you should select early June or late August because, during these times, the rain clouds are either not arrived or are half gone.

Perks of Mera Peak Climbing in Monsoon

  • Quiet and accessible trekking trails
  • Discounted flight tickets, packages, and accommodation
  • Dust washed and clear views, which is the aftermath of rainfall
  • Additional adventure due to slippery routes.

How Difficult is Climbing Mera Peak?

Mera Peak is labeled as Trekking peak but does not underestimate the climb as it is not easy. The journey poses real severe challenges even though it does not have much technical section.

According to the alpine grading system, the peak was before graded as Alpine Grade F (straightforward/ easy). But now, it is graded as Alpine Grade PD (slightly tricky) due to the change in glaciers and steep technical climb in the last part.

The first challenge would be reaching the summit of 6467 m peak. Next is walking in glaciers with fair degrees of steepness using ice axes and crampons. Another would be climbing up a snow dome at a 5-degree angle using a jumar or ascender on a fixed rope at the final section.

Even with all the challenges, Mera Peak Climbing is suitable for novice climbers to gain some climbing experience with its technical section. This peak is like a training ground for people before the higher climbs.

Overall, Mera peak Climbing is neither the toughest nor the most leisurely climb. You will have to cross a few of the technical sections and make a steep ascend at last. So, it is not too strenuous with better preparation and mountaineering training.

Mera Peak Climbing Cost

Mera Peak gives a great climbing experience with fabulous views of the Himalayas. The overall expedition cost ranges from $2000 to $2500, and the package includes the price of a guide, meal, accommodation, porter, etc.

However, the cost does not cover your expenses of snacks, bar bills, hot shower, phone and battery charging, etc. So, you need to carry extra cash of $15 to $25 a day to spend on yourself.

Mera Peak Climbing Difficulties

Several factors drive the difficulty level of Mera Peak Climbing, and these factors answer the question of How Hard Mera Peak Climbing is? Some are mentioned below:

Duration

Mera Peak Climbing takes you to the sky-touching height of 6467 m. This high altitude climb is not easy to accumulate suddenly, so the journey requires a lot of acclimatizing time to get used to the new environment.

Ascending the trials without proper walking hours and short traveling days results in severe strain. So, duration directs the difficulty level of Mera Peak Climbing.

Typically, travelers should walk 5 to 6 hours each day while trekking in the Himalayas. But if your itinerary is short, the duration increases up to 8 to 9 hours per day which puts pressure on your body.

The continuous long hour walk without proper rest will take a toll on your body by making you weak and tired. So, select an itinerary with enough acclimatization days before the summit for a successful and safe ascend.

Distance covered to reach the summit.

The total distance required to complete the expedition also influences the difficulty level of Mera Peak Climbing. The routes are rough, steep, and take you to higher elevations. Not all trails are even or straightforward.

Climbers cover a total distance of 78 miles in the remote and rugged terrains of the Khumbu region. So, it will be a challenge to walk in such surroundings for a long time. But It will be more challenging if it is your first climb.

You will also be passing several technical sections and glaciers before reaching the top. The trails are steep and harsh, so you will need a good pain, endurance level, and physical condition to stand firmly.

The routes of Mera Peak Climbing pass you through crevasses, boulders and walk under the icicles. You will face difficulties in this climb if you are not familiar with walking in topographical conditions. It is best to practice walking in harsh terrains before the journey.

Weather and Temperature

There is geographical variation in Nepal, and this disparity causes weather changes from region to region. Since Mera Peak is a high elevation summit trip, the climatic condition is unpredictable.

One can never predict when the sunny warm morning changes to dark clouds with blizzards and thunderstorms. So, with the modification in weather, your experience also varies.

The weather and temperature in lower regions are bearable compared to higher places. You will face hard times if there is a sudden climate change when at a high altitude.

Climbing Mera Peak usually poses hardship when traveling in the off-season, i.e., winter and monsoon. There are problems of road blockage, slippery routes, cold temperatures, and more. Thus to avert mishaps, you should choose the seasons and gears correctly.

Technical Section

Mera Peak is graded as Alpine Grade PD according to the alpine grading system, so the climb is neither too hard nor easy. Usually, the PD-graded mountains have some glaciers climbing and technical sections.

Before, Mera Peak had straightforward routes, so it was considered Alpine Grade F, but due to glacier changes, the grade also changed. Nowadays, the peak has a few minor technical sections that require crampons and ice axes before the summit.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude Sickness is another difficulty factor you face in Mera Peak Climbing. Altitude-related illness is one of the reasons that make many climbers turn back before reaching the top.

The oxygen at 6467 m elevation is about 47%, and climbers make the summit without supplementary oxygen, increasing the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness. The trekking journey begins from 2800 m elevation and keeps growing with every step towards the top.

You spend about five days above 5000 m altitude to cope with the climate before heading to the summit. It is not an simple task to adjust to this environment, but it can be dangerous for one’s health without care.

You can get symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, sleep deprivation, shortness of breath, and more. If you endure from any of these, you cannot climb up anymore and either descend or halt.

Physical Stamina

Being physically fit is a necessity before you go on longer day hikes on rocky terrains. Without proper health climbing, steep and uneven paths will be a challenge.

The mountain path requires you to have physical power and resistance to walk the rugged trails. There will be several zigzag routes, steep up and downhill walks, long-duration treks, and more. For these hikes, you need a good physique to finish the climb to the summit.

Tips for Mera Peak Climbing

Along with difficulties, you need to focus on how to overcome them as well. So we have listed a few of the tips for Mera Peak Climbing:

Gather high altitude experience

The foremost tip for Mera Peak Climbing is gaining some high-altitude experience. This peak is the highest trekking mountain in Nepal, so you need to spend a couple of nights above 5000 m.

Without previous experience, taking walks and spending the nights will seem harder in the new environment. Thus making yourself eligible for the climb is very important.

Mera Peak doesn't require technical climbing experience but having high altitude experience is beneficial. It is a more accessible peak for climbers with a better climbing experience and mountaineering training.

So, you can go on hikes or treks on higher elevations to gather some experience. It will make you feel comfortable walking in the upper parts of the Himalayas. You can visit the grounds of Everest Base Camp or Kilimanjaro for training.

Good physique

A good physique is a must when going on any of the treks or climbs in the Himalayas. So, it is no different for climbers to have the excellent physical condition during Mera Peak Climbing.

The overall route of Mera Peak is not so harsh, but the steep and strenuous climbs over the rugged region add to the difficulty. So, having a fit physique is a necessity to complete the trek.

To put yourself in nice shape, you can do some training on your own or hit the gym. These training sessions are not that demanding and require only 1 to 2 hours of your time.

Climbers can do physical exercises such as running, swimming, cycling, long-hour walks, skipping, and other activities that increase one's strength and stamina.

It is better to make yourself fit before beginning the trek to enjoy the climb without much strain.

Choose the right season.

Picking the right season also determines the success of Mera Peak Climbing. Traveling during the right time provides you with ideal weather conditions and temperatures.

Not every month and season is fit for the trip. So, traveling during winter and monsoon is not recommended due to harsh weather conditions. The problems and difficulty increase at these times.

You need to select the season that does not have heavy rainfall or snowfall; instead has a mild temperature, clear visibility, and blue skies. Because wrong timing can jeopardize your entire holiday and create dissatisfaction.

The climate can't be controlled, but you can reduce the disaster by choosing the right season. In general, Autumn and Spring are said to be the best times for Climbing Mera Peak.

The weather remains moderate, and the weather is stable, making the climbs comfortable and more manageable. The success rate of summiting the peak is also high at this time.

Prepare six months prior to the climb.

You need to train for at least six months before arriving in Nepal. Reaching the top is not a journey of only 2 to 3 days climbing but involves weeks of trekking.

Climbers need to walk 5 to 6 hours each day on this trek while ascending and descending the different terrains. The mountaineering days are more challenging during longer walks and higher elevations.

So, it is essential to train yourself by building up your stamina and strength. If you focus on indulging in training for at least six months, then you can transform your body into an eligible one.

Do not make a tight and strict itinerary.

Shortening your itinerary and making it tight or strict is not an option. If you have little to no room for mistakes on your schedule, it is best to reconsider it.

Typically, companies offer a 15 to 16 days itinerary with no acclimatization, which can pose a severe threat when climbing above 6000 m. People usually choose short days itinerary because they cost low but don't realize the risk they cause.

So, never shorten your itinerary and choose them tight. Instead, if you can then add extra days for more rest and contingency. We here at Nepal Eco Adventure believe in your safety, so we follow the more comprehensive approach with enough adaptation days.

Choose suitable clothing and gear.

Like other tips to overcome the Mera Peak Climbing, choosing the right gear and clothing is also significant. Without the proper equipment and clothes, your entire trip could end up miserably.

It is good to check with the company for the packing list to make sure you have brought the full climbing gears. There are not many technical sections, but you need a few of equipment to finish the climb.

If you forget to purchase them or bring them along, you can rent them from Thamel or at Khare. But before using them, make sure the gears are a fit (not too tight or loose).

Along with equipment, you should make sure about the clothes as well. You need to carry clothing according to the season and weather conditions. Always have a sweater or windcheater, socks, gloves, etc., to wear in the higher regions as it is cold during nights and mornings.

Slow and Steady

The saying "Slow and Steady Win the race" is also applicable in the Mera Peak Expedition. It is necessary to walk slowly and steadily in the rugged Himalayan trails.

The risk of altitude sickness is high if you hurry without proper acclimatization because our body requires a specific time to adapt to the new elevation.

So, if you do not have adjustment time, the body can become weak and suffer from mountain sickness. It is in your better interest to not put too much pressure on your body and ascend slowly.

It is also significant for climbers to utilize the acclimatization day wisely. By acclimatizing, we don't mean to just rest all day but to climb nearby hills and explore around to let your body adapt.

Mental Preparation

A good physique is not only enough for Mera Peak Expedition, and you need to be mentally prepared as well. You need to understand mind over body and learn to keep cool throughout the trip.

Without a clear mindset, you won't be able to focus on the climb, and all your hard work plus training will go to waste. You need to mentally prepare yourself to tackle the strenuous walk, cold and sleepless night, and harsh weather.

It is mandatory for climbers to have a fixed mindset to overcome all the difficulties and finish the journey. Remote areas are still not developed, so you should prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Choose an experienced guide and trusted company.

Choosing a trusted company with an experienced guide is a must for an easy and safe climb to Mera Peak. Usually, trusted companies already have professional porters, directions, and staff.

Go with a reputed and trusted company with proper arrangements and crews so that you won't be disappointed. The climbing trips at Nepal Eco Adventure provide satellite phones, supplementary oxygen, and a 1:3 guide to climber ratio.

Maintain health and personal hygiene

Mera Peak Climbing is a three-week journey in the Khumbu region's beautiful and remote valleys. There are few health posts en-route, so maintaining personal health and hygiene is a necessity.

During your trips, there are chances of coming across several harmful bacterias that cause hygiene-related sickness such as diarrhea, headache, food poisoning, etc.

So, you need to keep in your thoughts to drink boiled water, use sanitizer, avoid bakery and meat, wear proper layers of clothing, and use good sunscreen. The crew member will have a health kit, but it is better to bring your own as well.

Carry a personal bottle and water purification tablets

It is always mentioned by trekkers and climbers to bring their own water bottle for the trip. You will find bottled water on the trials, but they cost more. Also, there are not many shops in every nook and corner, so you might have to walk 2 to 3 hours to reach the next market.

So for times like this having your personal bottle will be much beneficial. You can refill the bottle from the en-route water tanks or the hotel you stay in. But keep in mind that the hotels charge you extra for the water.

If you wish, you can also fill your bottle from the rivers and streams but do not forget to use the water purification tablet on them. Water from unknown sources has harmful bacteria in them, and the pills help to kill those germs.

ATM and Money exchange facilities

As you already know, you will be traveling in the remote areas of the Khumbu region, so finding banks and ATMs up there is a challenge. The sites are still not developed. Hence they are far from modern technology.

Thus, if you wish to exchange currency or cash them out, it is best to do it at Kathmandu or Lukla. These are the only places where the ATM and Money exchange facilities are available for Mera Peak Expedition.

Mera Peak Climbing- Accommodation and Food

During your Mera Peak Climbing travel, you follow three types of Accommodations. You stay in a 3-star hotel at Kathmandu, standard tea-houses in various trek stops, and camp in a personal tent at Mera Peak Base Camp.

You will spend the entire trek on a twin-sharing basis accommodation. However, single rooms are also provided on-demand with the payment of an additional cost. But this supplement is not feasible all the time due to peak seasons and crowds.

While you travel, you enjoy authentic Nepalese food and ordinary international cuisine like Indian, Italian, Tibetan, etc. You have your breakfast and dinner served from the lodge or tea-houses you spend the night in.

Whereas your lunch is served on the trails while heading to the next destination. On this climb, you will eat various meals, such as toast with jam, sandwich, scrambled eggs, boiled egg, omelet, spaghetti, noodles, soup, Khana set, paratha, etc.

P.S. All meals are provided during the trek, but only breakfast is available in Kathmandu.

Permits required for Mera Peak Climbing

Permits are mandatory to climb the Mera Peak, and only licensed, or registered trekking agencies can arrange them. You need to carry three passes, i.e., Local Area Permit, Makalu Barun National Park Entry Permit, and Mera Peak Climbing Cost.

Unlike other treks or climbs, the Mera Peak permit fee varies in distinct seasons based on the demand of the advancement. You can purchase the pass from the NMA in Kathmandu.

It costs about $70 (Jun-Aug), $250 (Mar-May), $125 (Sep-Nov), and $70 (Dec-Feb) for foreigners. Similarly, for Nepalese, the price is Nrs 1000 (Jun-Aug), Nrs 4000 (Mar-May), Nrs 2000 (Sep-Nov), and Nrs 1000 (Dec-Feb).

The local area permit is purchased at Lukla for the cost of $20. Likewise, the Makalu Barun National Park Entry Permit costs Nrs 1500 (approx. $15) for SAARC citizens and Nrs 3000 (approx. $30) for other nationalities.

Also, an additional cost of $250 is required for garbage deposit for the permits for Mera Peak Climb.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a necessity when climbing, so make one even if you are a professional. The insurance coverage helps you when you are stuck in the Himalayas or get sick during your trip.

You should select the company that offers helicopter rescue and covers for trek above 5000 m altitude. Travel insurance pays for all your medical insurance and provides a rescue helicopter if you need emergency evacuation to the nearest hospital.
