A high altitude, non-technical climb to Mera Peak, Nepal’s highest trekking peak

Mera Peak Climbing takes you across the remote Hinku Valley and to the summit of Mera Peak, Nepal’s highest trekking peak. Lying in Solu Khumbu, the region with the five highest peaks in the world, the ascent up Mera Peak is strenuous but non-technical. The route to the mountain is straightforward and the inclines are less than 30 degrees. If you are a novice climber looking for a high altitude challenge and your first Himalayan summit then Mera Peak is the mountain for you.

Our well-crafted  Mera Peak climbing itinerary of 18 days takes you away from the busy Everest Base Camp trail. You follow the Hinku Valley trail which is less crowded and secluded. Walk past glaciers and cross high mountain passes and glacial rivers. You will be staying overnight at local teahouses, built alongside solitary ‘kharkas’ or grazing camps of yak herders. The climb up the Mera Peak is non-technical. For most part you will be walking roped up, using crampons and ice-axe.

This trip is ideal for people looking for their first Himalayan peak ascent. Book Mera Peak Climbing adventure if you have high altitude experience and high level of physical fitness. The only concern is the high altitude and freezing cold. The thin air and extreme temperature makes the climb strenuous and challenging.

You will be supported by an experienced crew of chief climbing guide, assistant guides and porters. For your safety and summit success, we assign a very experienced chief climbing guide and 1 assistant guide for 2 climbers. The chief climbing guide has more than 20 plus years of climbing experience. He has summited several 8000m and 7000m peaks, including Mount Everest, Shisapangma, Lhotse, Manaslu, Makalu and Mera Peak (summited more than 15 times). Prior to the summit push, there will be a pre-climb training where basic tips on alpine climbing will be shared. All group and personal climbing gear will be provided by the company.

He will also let you know about the important ‘dos and don’ts’ to be followed while trekking and climbing. After the briefing there will be a gear and equipment check. The company will provide all group and personal climbing gear.

Our goal is to reach the summit of Mera Central. Most commercial expeditions head up to this peak. We walk up the Mera glacier to Mera Peak high camp. There is no technical climbing involved. It is an easy trek up a gradual incline. The trek becomes strenuous and challenging because of the altitude and cold. We are walking above 5000 metres and every step comes with a struggle. Once we reach Mera High Camp, we have hot drinks and soup. From High Camp we get to enjoy inspiring views of five highest peaks in the world- Mount Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu(8188m) and Makalu(8485m).

Accommodation: Best Available Tea house

Wake up at 2 AM and get ready for summit push after breakfast. Put on your crampons, headlight and rope up. We will be secured by ‘man-ropes’. Walk in rhythm and follow your guide across the open glacier. It is a gradual climb; an uphill non- technical hike. While the terrain is easy, the only thing slowing us down will be the altitude and freezing cold. The air is thin and each step comes with a struggle. Mera Peak is truly a Trekking Peak because we can easily trek to the top of this mountain. Only the last 40-50 metres to the summit is challenging. It is a steep incline and fixed rope and jumars may be needed to climb to the snowy dome of the summit.

You reach the summit of Mera Peak latest by 9 to 10 AM. Enjoy stunning views of the five highest mountains in the world Mount Everest(8848m), Kanchenjunga(8586m), Lhotse(8516m), Makalu(8481m) and Cho Oyu (8201m). You have done it!

Spend 5 to 10 minutes at the summit and later head down to High Camp.  Drink something hot(tea, coffee, soup) to warm yourself. Later have lunch, and make a quick descent (2 to 3 hours) from Mera High Camp camp and trek to Khare. This has been a tiring day.

The view from the pass is amazing and we can see a part of the trail that we passed earlier. We can see the whole Lukla village, Numbur Himal, Dudh Kunda, Kongde, Khumbila and Hinku Valley. A steep descent brings us to Lukla. We head quickly to our teahouse and enjoy a hot shower. We celebrate our last evening in the mountains with our crew.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 If you have to leave the expedition due to ill-health or injury, an emergency air rescue will be arranged whereby an air ambulance/helicopter will fly you out of the mountains to Kathmandu for medical attention. Make sure your insurance covers high altitude mountain rescue. If you are able to walk down, one of the assistant guides will guide you down to a lower elevation where you can wait for the rest of the team or fly out to Kathmandu ahead of the group. Whether for health or personal reasons, please do note refunds for the unused days of your trip will not be given. Even if you leave the expedition beforehand, we are committed to pay the porters, and guides for the duration of the trip for which they are hired.       

 Technically Island Peak is more difficult to climb than Mera Peak. Even though Mera Peak is the highest Trekking Peak in Nepal, the route up the mountain is straightforward and non-technical. Climbers get up to the mountain using ‘man-ropes’ (walking roped up), ice axe and crampons. On the other hand, the route up Island Peak is more technical and involves crossing crevasses on ladders and using fixed rope to reach the summit. While both the peaks can be attempted by novice climbers, Island Peak is more technical and challenging. 

 At 6461m/21,190ft. Mera Peak is Nepal’s highest trekking peak and one of the best peaks to climb for first-timers and novice climbers. Though alpine climbing experiences maybe an advantage, it is not a requirement to climb to this peak. It involves trekking and climbing above 5000 and 6000 metres and one should be physically fit and used to high-altitude trekking. The climb may not involve technical maneuvers but it’s physically demanding and strenuous. If you are fit and agile, have high-altitude trekking experience and are looking for your first Himalayan peak to climb, then this is the mountain for you. 

To reach Mera Peak you have to trek through the sparsely populted Hinku Valley. There are less crowds, but the facilities at the teahouses are basic as compared to those available along the busy Everest Base Camp route.

Had such an amazing adventure to the top of Mera peak with Third Rock Adventures. It was absolutely phenomenal adventure for me. The 18 days to top of Mera Peak was worth everything and beyond my imagination. I have to say that Third Rock Adventures was exceptional with their service. My guide/leader, Chewwang was superb with every job he performed: he truly is Sherpa. I had few obstacle at High Camp but with expertise of Sherpa, I was able to overcome it and the pre-climb training helped me alot for the climb. Once I reached the summit, I was awestruck, imagine standing on top of the mountain with breath-taking views of some of the highest mountain in the world. I had a feeling that I conquered the greatest battle of my life. Everyday was blissful, surrounded by mountains, beautiful people and dramatic landscape. I recall my brief moment at the summit: wonderful experience. Without Chewang, the trip would have been kinda normal. I have huge respect to his experience (I heard he has more than 25 years of experience, that's amazing!!!) At last I want to wrap up by recommending them, Third Rock is awesome.

I wanted to do Mera Peak Climbing for two reasons: "1. Checked EBC and ABC Trek from my Travel list" AND " 2. wanted to try Nepal's Highest Trekking Peak." I successfully did Mera Peak Climbing again with two reasons: "1. my strong will and determination" and "2. Professional Travel Agency." Third Rock Adventures went above and beyond for my adventure- from the first inquiry to my way to Kathmandu and final departure- I was taken care of with my expectations fulfilled; thanks to the experienced and professional team of Third Rock Adventures. The constant backdrop of some of the highest mountains in the world en route Mera Peak allured me with its elegant beauty. Though it was quite hard on reaching higher altitude, my guide helped me cope up with the thin air. Thanks to well-crafted itinerary designed for me, we had acclimatization day that immensely help me through my journey to the top of Mera Peak. The accommodations and meals were good, in fact, better than I expected. Despite the difficult grading of Mera Peak Climbing, I was properly trained, salute to the team. Overall, the experience was wonderful- what's next? Next year I will again come to Nepal with Third Rock Adventures.
Good Value,I like itinerary,
Yes
I wanted to indulge the best summit experience,
The field staff and their professionalism. They were too good with what's next and hows' that done!
If you want to try something new other than EBC Trek, I recommend Mera peak climbing.
