Situated in the Everest region, Mahalangur section, Mera Peak has three summit points; Mera South (6,065 m), Mera Central (6,461 m), and Mera North (6,467 m). The legendary Tenzing Norway Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary are the ones who established Mera Peak as a practice climbing before pushing towards Everest.

The straightforward snow-covered route to the summit of Mera peak welcomes hundreds of climbing aspirants every year. Amateurs get to use crampons, fixed rope, ice-ax, etc. Even though there are fewer technical sections, the high elevation, thin air, exposure to extreme weather conditions, and camping teach a lot of valuable things to the climbers.

You can book Mera peak climbing through our site.

Mera Peak Trekking Part

Our Mera peak climbing package is more than just peak climbing. The itinerary involves trekking through beautiful mountain villages and dense forests. You get to see the mountain lifestyle and have intimate interactions with Sherpas. The stupas, prayer wheels, and monasteries along the trekking route explain a lot about the rich cultural heritage of the locals.  

Similarly, the stunning views of eight-thousanders and other mountains like Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Nuptse (7,861 m), Baruntse (7,162 m), Island Peak (6,160 m), Kongde Ri (6,187 m), etc make the trekking part phenomenal. The landscapes change with every turn in the route and take you across glaciers, frozen streams & moraines. 

Climbing Mera Peak

Climbing Mera peak is not technically difficult, but it has a long summit day, and the route is exposed to many elements. The climbers have to take care of their hydration and pace. As you climb over a snowy route, a lot of energy is needed, and because of high elevation pressure, your body may get exhausted sooner than you can imagine. 

Our Sherpa guides will fix the ropes wherever needed. You have to ascend following the safe line wearing crampons and using a walking ax. We carry all the essentials to the Mera High Camp (5,300 m), including tents, fuels, packed meals, etc. 

Mera Peak climbing Distance

The Mera peak climbing distance is approximately 125 km. Regardless of the route you choose, it's the average distance covered during this venture. The trail up to the Mera base camp (5,000 m) is not straightforward like the summit route. There are numerous ascends and descends, which make this distance one of the major difficulties of Mera peak climbing. 

Mera peak support team

During the Mera peak climbing, our experienced Sherpa guides, assistant guides, and porters will be assisting you (depending upon the group size). We will help you in getting ready for the trip from the moment you do booking. Our team will help you with physical fitness and packing. 

In Kathmandu, we help in the final packing and double-checking of the climbing gears. We obtain all the necessary permits, so you do not have to worry about it. All the necessary equipment, hotel/lodge arrangements, domestic flight booking, etc, are done by us. 

Once we reach the base camp, our crew helps you ascend to high camp. We have contingency days in case we have to face a bad weather window. The team also gives you basic climbing training to boost your confidence. We do have base camp doctors and supplemental oxygen too. The doctor regularly monitors the health of the group and updates the office team. Likewise, we also regularly stay updated with the weather and connect with the office team through our satellite phone. 

Emergency evacuation 

The best thing about Mera peak is its location again. It is situated close to Lukla, which has pretty good healthcare facilities in the entire Khumbu region. If any medical emergency occurs, we quickly transfer the patient to Lukla or airlift to a hospital in Kathmandu.

If we talk about technical difficulty, then the Mera peak is not that hard to climb. However, given the high elevation and other remote region challenges, the venture is strenuous. If you are properly prepared and well supported, then Mera peak is a great option to climb as a beginner climber. 

No, you cannot climb Mera Peak or any other mountain in Nepal without a guide. As per the rules, you only get to climb a peak or mountain in the Himalayas of Nepal if you are climbing with a Nepali registered travel company and licensed guide.

Yes, Mera Peak is considered harder than Island Peak because of the high elevation you gain during Mera Peak climbing. The trekking trail of Mera peak is far more remote and less traveled than the Island peak trail.

Mera Peak has three summit points; Mera South (6,065 m), Mera Central (6,461 m), and Mera North (6,467 m). It is the highest trekking peak in Nepal.

Mera's peak climbing cost starts at USD 2200. The cost may go up if you make changes in the itinerary or services.

Yes, you can see Mt. Everest from the top of Mera Peak. The view also covers four other eight-thousander mountains; Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse, and Kanchenjunga.

Yes, you can join Mera peak climbing as a beginner climber. Mera Peak is a trekking peak and has a straight snow-covered route to the top of the peak. You'll need a fixed route and a crampon to reach the summit safely. Our team will help you with that.

To prepare for Mera peak climbing, you have to exercise and increase your strength, walking hours & stamina. Mera peak climbing involves long walking hours, so you'll need stamina. Likewise, your body has to deal with high altitude, limited facilities, and exposure to sun, cold & wind. So, it is very important to prepare your mind and pack all the essentials. You can do short hikes, treks, cycling, swimming, running, etc, to prepare for Mera peak climbing.

Yes, you can cancel or postpone Mera peak climbing. If you cancel the trip in the given time frame (one month before the start of the journey), you'll not have to pay a cancellation fee. You can check our terms & conditions for more information.

Useful Information

Altitude Sickness

Climbing a mountain and altitude sickness goes hand in hand. There is always a risk of altitude sickness (acute mountain sickness) during peak climbing. However, if you take proper measures you can avoid it. During the Mera peak climbing for 18 days, the elevation changes every day, and your body has to adjust with it, or you'll suffer from altitude sickness.

Having ample acclimatization days, drinking plenty of water, taking enough rest, and not ascending more than 500 meters a day are some of the measures one can take to avoid altitude sickness. We carry all the required medicines and other stuff in our first aid kit. 

Our guides are trained to handle emergency medical situations during climbing, so you can climb freely with us. Our last resort is offering emergency air evacuation if the situation escalates and gets out of control, so travel insurance is compulsory for Mera peak climbing. 

Weather and Temperature

The weather and temperature in the mountains are unpredictable. With frequent changing weather and harsh climatic conditions, traveling in the Himalayas is very challenging. You can expect snowfall at any time. We need a clear, warm day for the summit push. The spring and autumn seasons have a high chance of stable weather, which makes peak climbing ideal in these two seasons. 

Physical Fitness

You do not need any technical climbing training to join Mera peak climbing, but good physical fitness is a minimum requirement. You have to build your fitness and endurance to climb Mera Peak. You can do exercises that will help you grow your stamina, muscle power, etc. Visit the gym and go on frequent hiking. At least have 3 months' time to prepare for the climb. 

Accommodation on the Mera peak climbing 

Up to Khare, we stay overnight in lodges run by local families. All the lodges are basic and have a communal dining area with twin shared rooms. The washroom is common. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. You get a mattress and blanket, with a pillow in the room with a small side table at some places. 

At the Mera high camp, we use a tent to sleep. Our company offers all the necessary tents and other essentials. We have separate sleeping, dining, and washroom tents. We use high-quality alpine tents to keep us protected and warm at the high camp. 


Nepali food is common on the trail. The most famous is Dal Bhat and momos. You also get burgers, chips, steak, sandwiches, pasta, etc in some places. The trail has several other varieties of food. You'll have no hard time finding food that you like. 

Drinking water is available in all the lodges. They offer boiled drinking water free of cost. All you have to do is carry a reusable water bottle. You can carry a water purification tablet to double purify the water. Do not drink tap water or water from streams as it may be hard to digest. 

Travel Insurance

To join peak climbing, you necessarily need to get travel insurance that covers emergency air evacuation. You can also add medical bills, flight cancellations, and property loss to your travel insurance. If any medical emergency occurs during the time of trekking or climbing in the Himalayas, travel insurance allows us to provide you with a quick rescue. 

Group/Private Joining

You can do Mera peak climbing alone or in a group. Either way, our best guide will accompany you. If you are a solo climber, then private peak climbing is a great option. Private peak climbing also lets you choose the departure dates and even modify the itinerary as per your wish.  

Tipping to crew members

Tip our crew members at the end of the trip as per your wish. We have not included tipping in our Mera peak climbing cost, so you are free to tip whatever amount you like. Of course, it's not compulsory to tip, but we recommend tipping if you are grateful for their service and enjoyed the venture. 

Personal expenses 

You will need some money to buy services like a hot shower, internet, extra snacks, etc during trekking. These expenses are not covered in the package, so make sure to have a small daily budget. You'll also need money to do the shopping and give tips.
