Mera Peak Climbing

18 Days 17 Nights

Overview

Mera Peak Climbing is one of the finest peak climbs in Nepal. The first reason is the peak is the tallest trekking peak in Nepal. However, this excursion by Sabbatical Explore Nepal is extra special for more reasons. Let’s unknot them together.

Mera Peak(6,461m) lies in Nepal’s Khumbu Region’s Mahalangur section, the home to four eight-thousanders Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu. What a climb it is! Subtly, you will enjoy some of Earth’s iconic mountains closely. As mentioned earlier, Mera Peak Climbing is the highest trekking peak expedition in Nepal. So you will also live the achievement of summiting the highest of its kind by climbing Mera Peak. 

Moreover, the expedition, altogether, lasts for 16 days, starting and ending in Kathmandu. Through Lukla, it progresses via Everest Region’s terrains to the chilly top of Mera Peak. We will come across many suspension bridges, countless prayer flags, monasteries, gompas, traditional stone houses, lush vegetation, streams, and more. 

Ultimately, reaching the top of Mera Peak, we’ll rush with joy overlooking the peaks and the serene view. Numerous big and small mountains, vast valleys, broad landscapes, and more are observable from the top. All the climbs and ascends will make sense there. Therefore, you will not just climb a mountain but explore the region’s cultural and natural gifts. But how can you do this?

Well, you don’t have to be an expert climber. Mera Peak is a trekking peak with primary technical sections. So if you know how to use alpine gears like Ice-axes and crampons, if you are good at trekking in the high elevations, you are more than welcome to this Mera Peak Climbing with us. Even if you are a beginner looking for a place to gain climbing experience, this is the right place.

So why not Mera Peak Climbing? Schedule a call with us right away, and let’s plan this adventure!

Next, our trail confluences with a trail that follows Hinku Khola. Soon later, we’ll reach Tashing Ongma, a place with tea shops. We’ll stop for a tea break. And, following that, we’ll reach Kothe after crossing Sanu Khola via a bridge. Overnight in Kothe.

The big day is here, starting climbing towards Mera High Camp. We’ll start the day’s climb from a boulder scattered region to the Mera Peak Base Camp. We’ll move ahead Mera La Pass via a rough and snowy trail to reach Mera High Camp through the base camp. We have to be careful around here as there are a few crevasses. We’ll overcome all the sections and safely reach the high camp. Our team will settle a camp for all of us. Overnight in Mera High Camp.

Day 12: Summit Day and Back to Khare

The biggest is here, the day when we’ll finally step on the summit of the tallest trekking peak in Nepal. We’ll wake up at 2 in the morning to approach Mera Peak. The weather will be extreme, but we’ll continue onto an unusual ridge through the glacier. Up to this point, there is no such technical section demanding. Yet, we’ll reach the height where the air is thin. From a bit of up, we’ll view the summit point already. We may use fixed roped on our climbing lead’s call to step on the summit. And at last, we’ll be on the pinpoint of Mera Peak to watch breathtaking mountain vistas of various popular peaks. We’ll enjoy the view to the fullest. Later, we’ll descend back to Khare via the same route. Overnight in Khare.

Day 13: Trek to Kothe |4-5hrs

Now it is the start of the Kathmandu-coming trek. We’ll retrace the same trail to reach Kothe after a trek of 4-5hrs. To do that, we’ll cross Thangnak on the way along with a dotted forest. The hike back to Kothe is easy; the trail is mostly descending. We’ll reach Kothe comfortably. Overnight in Kothe.

Day 14: Trek to Thuli Kharka| 5-6hrs

The trip was well worth it! I was in Nepal last Autumn with the team of Shiva and Kiran, whom I knew from my colleagues. I was confused about where to go. But my expert friends, Shiva and Kiran, suggested I do their best-selling Nepal Panorama Tour. I'm glad they suggested it. I am not a hiking person, my body does not let me be. So I went on a tour of Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. In Kathmandu, I saw a lot of historical and time-traveling sites. Pokhara was so much vivid by Fewa Lake; I enjoyed the boat riding there. And Chitwan was unimaginably full of nature. I saw rhinos, elephants, birds, crocodiles. I was expecting the Bengal Tiger, but luck did not favor me. Except for that, Chitwan treated me quite well. Overall, the trip felt so smooth and rewarding. I traveled around Nepal panoramically. Thanks!

I had an amazing experience with Sabbatical Explore Nepal when I visited Nepal during my Gap year 2018. Our guide and driver were so experienced and helpful. I remember seeing many animals like tigers, deers, rhinos during Jungle Safari in Chitwan. I even went to the Elephant Breeding Centre and that was amazing. In Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha I visited Maya Devi Temple and other monasteries. I was mesmerized by the architectural designs of the Temples and Monasteries built by different countries. I was a little sad that I couldn't visit other amazing places but the 6 days I spent in Nepal were very meaningful and memorable. I am looking forward to my next trip to Nepal.

We recently made trip to Nepal. Shiva from Sabbatical Explore Nepal helped us finalizing trekking itinerary. It was a great trek to Langtang Region. We started it from Syafru Beshi and Gatlang and made very interesting and impressive Tamang Heritage trails. Completing Tamang Heritage trek, we reached to Lama Hotel through Thuman, Bhridim, Nagthali and Surka. We all enjoyed our time in Langtang Valley, Kenjing Gomba, Kenjing Ri, and Tsergo Ri. Our Porter and Guide were good & kind. They did the best care of us on trek and we already miss them. 
We highly recommend this trip and company
