Overview of 18 days Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing is regarded as a moderate-climb level within 18 days. Its slopes are inclined with easy-to-navigate trails. The traverse is primarily non-technical, with few stretches of the rise requiring fixed ropes. The space right below the summit of Mera Peak involves a steep ascent traversing through the snow dome. This section requires an ascender /jumar on a fixed rope. Other climbing sections are, however, moderate.

Like other Peak climbing in the Everest region, this climb provides panoramic views of the Everest vista. The summit view from the top of Mera Peak is simply astounding. Similarly, you may contact us by email or WhatsApp at +977 9851033819 to book 2024 and 2025.

Of the 600 mountains in Nepal, 300 reside in the Everest region. The area surrounding the Everest region is bordered by towering peaks that stand tall and elegant. This area has been mountaineering Arcadia for over seven decades now.

This vast range includes 3 of the highest massifs going beyond 8000 meters: Mt. Everest (8848.86 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m), and Mt.Lhotse (8516m). Apart from these giants, minor peaks surround the picturesque hamlets of the Sherpa people.

Mera Peak stands at 6476 meters in the Everest vicinity with its alluring aura. The Peak has become one of Nepal’s most sought-after climbing activities. This Peak, considered a trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association, provides a beginner climbing thrill.

It has been popular among climbers for decades and remains renowned. A French expedition team led by Jean Franco successfully summited this Peak for the first time on 20th May 1953. Henceforth, climbers have loved and cherished this Peak. There are three pinnacles of Mera Peak: Mera North (6476m), Mera Central (6461m), and Mera South (6064m). However, we’ll climb Mera North (6476m).

Mera Climbing Training

During your rest day at Khaare, you will be taught how to use your equipment during the climb. Also, you will have training at Khaare, led by our team of mountain guides. During the session, you will be taught about using various equipment you will use. Also, you will be briefed about high altitude risks and the dos and don’ts of climbing.

Climbing Route / Getting To Mera Peak

Mera Peak Route takes the classic Lukla flight from Kathmandu. It would help if you trekked for multiple days traversing high passes before reaching the base camp. Your climb begins from the base camp and reaches the summit of Mera Peak. We take the off-route from Lukla headed steeply above.

Unlike your Everest Base Camp Trek, this trek to Mera Peak’s base ascends fast. You traverse via small hamlets dotted along the trail.

Your Climb to Mera Base Camp heads southeast from Lukla, making a slight ascent towards Chutang. Chutang is located at an elevation of 3020 meters. From Chutang, we ascend through the dense alpine forest and sharply turn towards the south. Afterward, we headed for the Zartwa La Pass at 4610 meters from sea level.

This pass acts as a border for Makalu Barun National Park. It’s a steep descent from the pass for 2 hours to reach Thuli Kharka. Thuli Kharka is a shepherd’s hamlet with very few houses.

The stretch from Thuli Kharka traverses on rocky terrain. We ascend towards Tashing Dingma at 4010, covered with rock enclosure. The trail then meets Inkhu River at Tashing Ognma. Inkhu River originates from Mera Peak and later covers the Dudh Koshi River.

Following through, we make our way to Mosom Kharka, Gondhishung, to reach Kote at 4182 meters. You will have an occasional glimpse of Mera Peak during this traverse. Your Mera Peak climb journey follows along this river, passing through villages. Thangnak, Dig Kharka, Khare Camp, and Mera La are your stopovers before starting your climb.

Distance covered in Climb to Mera.

The roundtrip distance of Mera Peak is 127 kilometers/79 miles. The trail begins from Lukla and passes through the highlands of the Everest region to reach the summit of Mera Peak. It then descends to Lukla via the classic Everest Base Camp Trek. The journey takes on the Everest region’s challenging terrain, spanning 18 days.

The Mera Peak traverse is difficult, considering the trail’s distance and terrain. The path leading to Mera Peak is a higher section of remote terrain with uneven pathways. There are several rocky sections that you will have to traverse through. Also, the higher section of the traverse involves trekking via several glacial moraines, rocky paths, and snow pathways. This makes the climb even more strenuous.

Temperatures in Mera Peak during Spring range from 5°C to 15°C (41°F to 59°F) in the daytime. Night-time temperatures drop below zero. Autumn temperatures in Mera Peak can range from 5°C to 15°C (41°F to 59°F) at lower altitudes. Night temperatures in autumn months mostly drop to negative.

Altitude Sickness

AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is characterized by nausea, illness, dizziness, vomiting, and other bodily weakness. The human body takes time to adapt to a new environment, especially in higher altitudes. Climbing in Mera Peak takes you to a height of over 6000 meters. This makes it an area prone to altitude sickness. To negate the effects of altitude sickness in Mera Peak climbing, it is essential to acclimatize.

Boundless Adventures has developed an itinerary that takes 19 days for Mera Peak. These days include your acclimatization in the elevating altitude. We must stay for over three days at an altitude above 5000 meters. This zone is highly probable to have symptoms of AMS. It is recommended to have a thorough check-up with your doctor to know your physical condition.

Essential Information - 18 days Mera Peak Climbing

Best Time for Mera Peak 18 days trip

Nepalese Himalayan Mountains are favorable to climb only during Spring, Early Summer, and Autumn months. These nine months provide a highly feasible weather window for climbing in Nepal. Unlike trekking, climbing requires the mountain ice to become concrete and rigid.

Soft ice creates a slippery surface and provides a strenuous climbing environment. Spring months begin from March till the end of July during the Summer. These months receive the most climbers due to clear weather and optimal time. Another good time for Mera Peak Climbing is during autumn, from late September to early December.

Mera peak climbing was extraordinary

We have had the great pleasure of joining Mera Peak climbing with my best adventure partner, the Boundless Team. As a nature lover and adventure seeker, I always travel throughout the country solo and always try something new to experience.

I have trekked to various destinations in Nepal, all with one and only Boundless Adventure. Even though I always travel solo, I enjoy the company of others, too. That’s why Mr.Dambar from Boundless Adventure always mixes me with other teams. The fifteen days of Mera peak climbing was extraordinary. The journey started with a flight to Lukla and a trek to Paiya.

With the stunning scenery of the Everest region, I reached Mera Base Camp on the ninth day, including one acclimatization day during the journey. The tenth day leads us to high camp and the eleventh of Mera Peak. Upon reaching the peak, Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar, Baruntse, and Makalu surrounded me. I would choose Boundless Adventure again and again without any hesitation.

I highly recommend Boundless Team to climbing Mera Peak

Climbing to Mera Peak was not a joke indeed. Walking on rough trails with rocky and icy paths, unpredictable, harsh weather conditions, and technical climbing was challenging. But I had Boundless Adventure’s team by my side. Having such an expert and highly dedicated team who ensure our safety and ensure our enjoyment leads you to success.

Boundless Adventure managed all our logistics without worrying; we just focused on our climbing. The locals along the trail were hospitable and kind. The beautiful scenery in the background never lets us feel tired. Boundless Adventure managed simple yet comfortable accommodation for us. Overcoming the technical part of the climb with our expert guide takes us to the magnificent scenery of the Himalayas. I highly recommend Boundless Team for any adventure enthusiast.

Climb Mera Peak on second anniversary

We chose Boundless Adventure as our support partner for our climbing journey to Mera Peak, which became one of the best decisions. My wife and I are both adventure seekers, and on our second anniversary, we planned to climb the technical peak in Nepal and decided to choose Mera Peak. We contacted Boundless Adventure through WhatsApp. Their instant response, itinerary plan, and reasonable price attracted us. We had a great time climbing Mera Peak with Boundless Adventure.

The way team members cared for us and made my wife comfortable is appreciated. The journey was equally admirable. The beauty of the Everest region was nothing sort of heaven. Some climbing parts were adventurous, but our guide helped us with each step. We have decided to choose Boundless Adventure for our upcoming adventure in Nepal. Also, we highly recommend the company to anyone looking for a safe and delightful journey in Nepal.
