Mera Peak Climbing - 17 Days

Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak is the tallest trekking peak in Nepal; thus, it acts as an excellent alternative for peak climbing hubs. Mera Peak Climbing is probably the most rewarding, exciting, and mouthwatering journey with many spine chill adventures. Many Adventure junkies feel their raw adrenaline-charged as they ascend this magnificent peak.

Mera Peak lies in the Mahalangur section of the Everest region in the Solukhumbu district. The mountain has three dominant individual peaks, Mera South (6065 m), Mera Central (6461 m), and Mera North (6467 m). You will summit the North mountain on this Mera Peak Climbing as other faces are more difficult to complete. However, the climb from the north also involves high elevation glacier walking, which is simple in comparison. Climbing Mera Peak is the most outstanding achievement for adventure seekers as it is not an easy climb by any means. Summiting this mountain is suitable for beginner climbers, but there are a few technical sections along the way.

Mera Peak is not the most formidable mountain, but it is not the easiest as well. However, the panoramic view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, Ama Dablam, etc., look breathtaking from the summit. The route of Mera Peak also passes through Makalu Barun National Park, allowing you to enter the dense vegetation. Moreover, you can see various animals like Indian leopard, golden jackal, red fox, black bear, red panda, and many more in these jungles. The areas of the Khumbu region are inhabited mainly by the Sherpa community. These people follow Tibetan-influenced tradition and culture, so take your time and learn more about them and their lifestyle. Climbing Mera Peak is a challenge due to some of the technical sections, but it is doable. With the right amount of preparation and training, you will reach the summit with ease.
