Climbing Mera Peak

Mera Peak is officially known as the highest climbing peak in the Himalayan state of Nepal; this peak is a breathtaking challenge & provides climbers with the most exciting adventures among most other climbing peaks in Nepal. It is a tough climb but it has often been visited along the Makalu Barun National Park. The summit offers amazing views on your clambering to the top but even if you are unable to reach the pinnacle, {which we hope doesn’t happen} you will have enjoyed some of the most unusual landscapes ever beheld.

Geographically, Mera peak juts out from the south of Everest & totally captures the isolated valleys of hinku & hongku; the ascent is done from the Mera La pass at {5415m/17,766 ft} on the northern face which is a link to the less inhabited valleys of Hongku & Hinku. This is a formidable mountain but one doesn’t need to be a veteran climber to attempt this peak…it’s a straightforward peak technically but the snow & a whole lot of crevasses tend to consume time as you head up the peak. This peak beckons all seasoned & amateur climbers who dare to dream & love taking up a challenge for that special sense of something achieved.

This is how your trip pans out: our Mera Peak expedition begins with a scenic flight to the small mountain airstrip at Lukla wonderfully placed right in the heart of the Khumbu region and as we have to cross the Charpate Himal and Zatrwa La Pass, we get enough time for acclimatization for 2-3 days around Chutanga at (3,050m). Once we are ready we cross Zatrwa La which lies near Hinku valley. Subsequently, we pass through many unspoiled forests of rhododendron and descend down to the Hinku Khola and follow the river to the north towards upper Hinku.

we finally reach Tangnang, the river valley that offers impressive views of the west face of Mera peak and Peak 43 and we have at least two-days for necessary acclimatization and once we are ready, we head up to the moraine of the Dig Glacier, and do a steep hike down to Khare at (5,045m);

we then set lower base camp at around 5,300m near the 'Mera La' Pass at (5,415m) on the 'Hongku' and again we get some days for acclimatization and explore some of the areas around and move to a high camp on the edge of the Mera Glacier, where we again have time for further acclimatization. From this place we get lovely panoramic views of the east Kangchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse, to the north Everest and Lhotse, & towards the north east of Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega.

Consequently, if weather conditions are good, we make our summit of Mera central although there are two other peaks namely, Mera South (6,065m), and Mera North (6,476m). Once we finish ascending the summit, we then return to the base camp and subsequently the airport to hop our flight back to Kathmandu.

Mera Peak Climbing is a high-altitude trek and climb and trekkers will need to be physically fit and familiar with the use of an ice-axe and crampons. Annapurna Travels & Tours will provide instructions to those who need guidance in the use of certain trek equipments for which a program of instruction will be given at Kathmandu and at base camp near Khare which is a part of our Mera peak climbing venture. These trainings are a useful instructional process only for team members who need it to be familiar with climbing techniques before heading for the exciting summit to Mera Peak. The overall focus is to avoid glitches & ensure that the summit is a wonderful success…
