Mera Peak Climbing

19 Days

Overview

Mera Peak Climbing takes us to the summit of Mera Peak (6,461m/21,190ft) which is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. We ascend Mera Peak preferably during the spring and autumn seasons as it’s the best time to climb the mountain for its astonishing views of the Himalayan Vista. Five 8,000m peaks are visible from the summit including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga.

You will be supported by an experienced crew of chief climbing guides and porters. We assign a very professional guide for your safety and summit success. The chief climbing guide has more than 20 plus years of climbing experience. He has summited several 8,000m and 7,000m peaks, including Mount Everest, Shisapangma, Lhotse, Manaslu, Makalu, and Mera Peak (summited more than 15 times). Before the summit push, there will be a pre-climb training where basic alpine climbing tips will be shared. The company will provide all group and personal climbing gear.
