The ultimate trekking peak in Nepal is Mera Peak climbing. Standing at an altitude of 6476m among other elegant Himalayan mountains in the Khumbu region, it has been the most glorious and desired trekking peak since before conquering Mt Everest in 1953. This highest trekking peak was actually conquered just nine days before reaching the human being at top of the Mt Everest. Since then, millions’ of people have already had the aesthetic pleasure of mind-blowing postcard scenes of Khumbu region by summiting Mera Peak. It delights the climbers with magnificent crystal clear views of Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho- Oyu (8210m), Lhotse(8516m), Makalu(8463m), Kanchenjunga(8586m), Nuptse(7855m), Chamlang(7319m), Baruntse(7129m), Ama Dablam(6812m), Kangtega(6779m) and many more.
Mera Peak Climbing begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla for a few minutes. The trekking commences from Lukla with multiple choices of routes: North side, South side, or West side. Whichever is chosen the place can be reached through the amazing Hinku valley where climbers can enjoy pristine nature as well as Sherpa villages, their culture, beautiful monasteries, suspension bridges, narrow wooden bridges, rhododendron, and pine forest. Similarly, they can feel being close to nature while trekking on the rough terrains, and also feel an amazing mixture of excitement, thrill, and danger while moving up along with glaciers, and crevasses. Mera Peak climbing is quite challenging for novice climbers. And a lack of proper acclimatization, extremely cold weather, dry winds, and a long summit day can make their trekking more challenging. However, some skills and simple training can make climbers easier to reach the summit. During their scaling, they ought to be sure that they are well-acclimatized and have acquired the required knowledge, information, and all equipment and gear. Otherwise, high altitude sickness can kick you hard and you have to terminate your climb. So, climbers should be fit and fine with impressive stamina and endurance. They should follow their guide guidance. The last village on Mera Peak trail is Khare situated at 5045m with a tea house that climbers can reach after 5-7 days of the trek. After a couple of days of acclimatization over 5000m, the actual ascent commences through a rocky and steep trail. From Crampon Points, climbers ought to use gears and move up through icy path following rope lines and escaping crevasses, and after ascent of some hours they can reach the top of Mera Peak and have the marvelous feeling and observation of breathtaking wide snow-capped highest mountains of the Himalayas: Mt Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse etc. While descending too, trekkers take rest for a while at High Camp before descending to Khare. And following the previous path and enjoying the alluring environment they come back to Lukla, and Lukla to Kathmandu by flight.
As Mera Peak climbing is the highest trekking peak in Nepal, it has been popular in expedition lovers. The spectacular views of glorious gorgeous world’s highest mountains of Himalayas, and the perfect climbing experience for future expedition are its attraction. It’s not just the peak climbing, it is learning in open university of Khumbu Region situated in Solukhumbu district of Province- 1, Nepal.

Best Season for Mera Peak Climbing

<p “text-align:justify;”>Despite the fact that enthusiastic mountaineers dare to move up even in the winter, the best seasons for going up Mera Peak are Autumn and Spring.Mera Peak Climbing is the highest trekking peak in Nepal and it takes more than a fortnight to accomplish the mission. In Nepal, till Mid-September there remain slight rainy days. So the rainy season is of course the worst time to climb up. In winter too, due to extreme weather, blizzards and avalanches create hindrances on the path of the climbers. So, in Autumn the sky is clear with mind-blowing visibility, less thick snow in the mountains, and a moderate climate which makes the trekking easy, possible, and memorable. Autumn is categorized into two parts: early Autumn ( Mid Sep- Mid Nov), and late Autumn (Mid-Nov- Mid Jan). Early Autumn is more appropriate than late Autumn from the perspective of time and weather because late Autumn is colder than early Autumn in Nepal. Clouds have gone, days are sunny, and horizons have the strongest visibility, even many mountains are visible from Kathmandu Valley in Autumn.
Another best time is Spring ( Mid March to Mid May). This time is the best because Spring prospers the whole environment of the Hinku Valley with greenery, blooming rhododendron, and superb bio-diversity. A great combination of a blooming environment with a moderate climate really fascinates the trekkers. The mountaineers who admire nature, culture, and high snow-capped mountains, Spring is the best time for them to accomplish Mera Peak Climbing, the highest peak trekking situated at an altitude of 6476m from where they can have a close look at the magnificent highest mountains in the world. Actually, these seasons are not only the best seasons for Mera Peak Climbing but also the best for all mountaineering and expeditions.

Equipments required for Mera Peak Climbing

Since Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal and gives the vibes of an expedition, it requires a lot of precautions and preparation. Wise climbers ought to have all the equipment and gear to accomplish Mera Peak Climbing. Here is the list of those things which are essential for reaching the summit of Mera Peak.

Climbing Boots: Climbing boots make it easier for mountaineers to climb up the mountains. The spiky soles of the boots prevent the climbers from slipping on the rocky and snowy routes and keep them warm. So, for a comfortable and safe climb Climbing Boots are essential for Mera peak climbing.
Crampons: It is a traction device attached to footwear to improve climbing the snowy routes of mountains. The more the climbers go up the more the paths become snowy. They have to go through the glaciers and crevasses, and the grips on the crampons enable them to be stable and walk through such dangerous paths. Thus, crampons are one of the most required objects during peak climbing.
Descender: It is also a device that helps to be stable or fix oneself at a particular position on the rope. It is designed to help regulate friction and control the descent on a fixed rope.
Ascender: It is also a device that helps to climb up and provides protection with a fixed rope during the climb up steep mountains.
Screw Gale/ Carabiner/ Karabiner: This is a D- shape mental clip that allows mountaineers to link together ropes and harnesses.
Ice-Axe: This tool is used for climbing up steep mountains covered by snow. It looks like an Axe but doesn’t have a sharp thick blade on the edge, but has a sharp point that easily goes into the ice and helps climbers to come up holding it.
Helmet- UIAA Test: While climbing up the steep mountains sometimes broken pieces of rocks may fall down which can cause a fatal accident. So, to avoid dreadful harm, Helmets that pass the test of UIAA should be used.
Harness: For a successful climb up any mountain above 5000 m harness is essential. It helps climbers connect to the rope and saves them from falling and sliding. A full body harness or seat harness is the most required object for climbing mountains.

Meals and Accomodation for Mera Peak Climbing

To achieve anything, a healthy body is essential, and the body gets energy from the food we intake. The mountains of the Himalayas have a mental association with extremely cold weather. But, till the actual trekking or expedition starts, the mountaineers have to go through the insanely beautiful well facilitated hotels, lodges, and restaurants where they can stay, have their breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, coffee many other facilities like taking shower, electric blanket for which they have to pay extra.
Mera Peak Climbing and Island peak climbing goes on for more than a fortnight. So, trekkers can have their lunch and dinner at the hotels where they stay. Basically, they are offered Nepali National food: Dal ( lentil soup), bhat( rice), tarkari ( vegetables), saag ( green vegetable), achar ( pickle) at dinner. This meal is a balanced diet from which trekkers can get carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, fat, fiber, minerals, etc. Similarly, trekkers can have different foods that are normally available in restaurants either veg or non-veg. Likewise, many other things like soft drinks and hard drinks, soups, and fruits which are beneficial for health and acclimatization are also available in Khumbu Region. Just the matter is that they are more expensive than in Kathmandu. Because maximum food items, drinks, and other essential requirements have to be supplied from Kathmandu by plane. And the food tests are different than in Kathmandu valley.
For sleeping, they have a cozy room with hot blankets, thick mattresses, and internet access. In a room, there are two separate beds. If the trekkers need an additional blanket or electric blanket or hot water for taking bath, they have to pay extra for them. Khare is the last village where you can get a tea house. Khare ( 5413m)is also the base camp for Mera Peak climbing. When you move to the Peak and reach the High camp(5800m) there, a tent is set up and food is prepared by the crew members. After taking a meal and resting, they climb up to the summit. When they descend, the same previous routine of rest, walking, food, and accommodation they repeat.

Note: Keep a grace day to ensure you climb the summit even if you fail to do so the first day because of bad weather.

I had never done anything like this before, climbing a peak […] I summitted Mera Peak (6400+ meters) which I had my doubts on doing since I was coming directly from sea level, but was able to do it with no major problems! It was a great experience, the guides were amazing, the trip was amazing! ~Leah Thomas (USA)
