Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal takes us to the summit of Mera Peak, which is the most striking trekking peak in Nepal.

    The Himalayan Odyssey organized its first climbing trip to Mera Peak in 2018. Our Mera Peak Itinerary is deliberately planned with consistent rising and a different day put aside in Khare to permit a lot of time for acclimatization. The standard course to Mera Peak is straightforwardly through the Zatra La Pass. However, we follow the path that travels south from Lukla and up the lovely Hinku Valley and returns through the Zatra La pass. We go through the excellent Nepalese wild and unique villages, which will give us a brief look into the rich culture of local people. Furthermore, since the trial is more extended, it's better for acclimatization. 

    Mera Peak Climbing in Himalaya Nepal is an outstanding choice for anybody with moderate mountaineering experience. It is a difficult trekking top because of its height, yet specialized mountaineering abilities necessity is essential. Furthermore, Himalayan Glacier's prepared Sherpa guide will furnish us with necessary mountaineering preparation before the actual summit.

    Explore this beautiful region and learn about the local culture of the Sherpa people and their lifestyle. The Mera Peak Climbing trip is undoubtedly a challenging experience but an adventurous one. Join us at the Himalayan Odyssey to conquer the highest trekking peak in Nepal. 

     

    How difficult is Mera Peak? 

    Mera Peak Climbing trip is about an arduous (challenging) trip. Therefore, you should have experience with mountaineering or trekking at high altitudes. Trekking requires a performance above the average relating to force and strength. Especially the peak day will be long and exhausting. Concerning the technical alpine skills, you should have security in your steps and be free from unsteadiness. Even in a critical climate, you should be able to walk cautiously on your own through rugged terrain like screes, rocks, and as well as on flat glaciers. As you will sleep a few nights above the altitude of 4000 meters up to 5800 meters, very good health is required.

    It is important to start some physical training for 3 to 4 months for your Mera Peak Climbing trip. This helps you to strengthen stamina and also the capability to steer up and down hills easily with a weighted backpack at high altitudes. If you haven’t done any high-altitude trekking before, then you would possibly need to train yourself a touch harder.

     

    Best Season to Climb Mera Peak

    Weather is one of the important factors to look at and decide when you are traveling to high altitudes. You can see the live weather forecast, but it’s very hard to foretell being 100 % sure. So we highly recommend you to visit during the spring season (March to May) or the autumn season (September to Early December).

    It is best suited to trek during those seasons as the sky will be crystal clear, as the thick clouds will also fade. With these breathtaking views of mountains, the temperature will also be lovely with sunlight being warm temperature.

    The Autumn season falls just after the Monsoon and there is greenery everywhere. Waterfalls, rivers, ponds, and lakes get refilled after the Monsoon season, and it looks beautiful. So, it's the proper time to enjoy the beauty of the water of Nepal. Moreover, the air is fresh and cool during the autumn. From mid-September, it's a time of clear skies and peaceful mountain views.
