Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak climbing is a very popular adventure for trekkers or novice climbers attempting their first Himalayan climbing in Nepal. It allows an easy introduction to Himalayan mountaineering and a good opportunity to learn and practice basic peak climbing techniques such using crampons, ice axe and walking in a rope team in crevasse areas.

Mera Peak 6476m/21,230ft, first summited by Himalayan climbing legends and pioneers Jimmy Roberts and Tenzing Sherpa on May 20, 1953, is one of technically easier peak climbing in Nepal but a strenuous mountaineering style climbs located in a scenic and remote part of the Hinku valley in Everest Region.

Attraction of the climb

Mera Peak is classified as one of the trekking peaks for peak climbing in Nepal. This strenuous climb is very rewarding with the view from the summit of five peaks over 8000m Everest, 8848m/29,009ft, Lhotse 8500m/27,870ft, Cho Oyu, 8201m/26,888ft, Makalu, 8481m/27,800ft, and Kanchenjunga 8586m/28,169ft. Several other not less spectacular peaks surround Mera Peak and form an impressive panorama to enjoy from its summit.

Mera Peak located relatively close to Everest, the most visited locations in the Himalayas, is still a hidden treasure, located off the beaten trek to Everest crowds preferring the comfort of Khumbu lodges over the wilds of Hinku Valley. The reward of the Hinku Valley trek is tremendous with interesting fauna and flora and simple but colorful ethnic groups with the peacefulness of Buddhist traditions.

Climbing route and the approach

The normal Mera climbing route is from north via its north face and involves walking through high altitude glacier and climbing mid-range snow field as well a crossing a bergschrund. The ease of reaching this elevation may lead to a false sense of security but Mera Peak presents a considerable objective danger due to the weather and avalanche in heavy snow conditions while climbing up its north face. Long summit day is a critical part of the Mera Peak climb and requires a high level of endurance especially with changing weather conditions if one has to abandon the climb and return fast to the Mera base camp protection.

The approach to the climb is from Lukla with scenic 35 minute mountain flight from Kathmandu and hike through the wild Hinku valley offering stunning views of Kusum Kangaru and dramatic Peak.

Aesthetics of the mountain

Descent from Mera Peak  its South Face, Mera Peak is an imposing and formidable looking mountain but with a non-technical trekking approach from north on 30˚ snow route. The climb is challenging due to its very long and exposed. Low angle slopes collect lots of snow making the trek to the summit very hard and it requires a team to be able to conquer the route.

Mera peak consists of 3 peaks Mera North 6474m, Mera Central 6461 and Mera South 6300m. Mera Central is the trekking peak and it is easily accessible for any fit trekker. The highest Mera North peak is not technically difficult but it is guarded by complicated and treacherous crevasse field and it is normally not climbed due to high objective danger. Our climbing objective of the offer is Mera Central.
