Mera Peak Climbing

  • Mera Peak(6476m) is the highest trekking peaks under Nepal mountaineering Association(NMA) to experience climbing  in Nepal Himalaya. Summit to Mera peak  offers breath taking panoramic views of Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,029ft), Cho-Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft), Makalu (8,463m/27,766ft), Kangchenjunga (8,586m/28,169ft), Nuptse (7,855m/25,770ft), Chamlang (7,319m/24,013ft). Mera peak expedition  unleash great opportunity to all the experienced trekkers and amateur climbers who dare to stand on the Himalayan summit with a sense of great achievement. The highest trekking peak Mera is situated to the south of Everest dominating the watershed of the thickly wooded and remote Hinku valley. Mera Peak is a real adventure out of human habitation where we set our tented camp & prepare our fresh and hygienic food. It is not essential that you have prior climbing skills. It is more like walking peak rather than technical climbing.
    Mera peak climbing itinerary has been promptly designed to go on longer route with gradual ascent for enough acclimatization. After 40 minutes exciting flight to Lukla, we start mera peak trek through some remote section of Hinku valley of Pangkongma and Panch Pokhari on our way to base camp. Cozy Trek Team’s has long experience in organizing the successful climbing expedition to Mera peak. We fix Mera La base camp at an elevation of 5415 meter where we have an additional day for climbing training. Our climbing guide organize climbing training course with required climbing skills on various aspect of climbing techniques, glacier journey, rope fixing, ascending and descending before the summit push to ensure all have necessary climbing skills and confidence to scale the top successfully. To make the Mera peak summit day easier,shorter and enjoyable, we set the high camp at 5800 meter on a rocky shelf behind a large vertical rock providing some degree of shelter.
    Mera Peak climbing expedition is technically straightforward climbing & walking but there are some crevasses to maneuver around, and the Mera peak route can be longer and demanding after a fresh snowfall. The ascending from Mera La (5415m) on the northern face to the Summit is gradual with an outstanding Himalayan panorama of the Eastern Nepal Himalayas always in sight. The Views of  Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Kangchenjunga (8586m), Nuptse
