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.
