Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing takes us to the summit of Mera Peak (6,461m/21,190ft) which is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. We ascend Mera Peak preferably during the spring and autumn seasons as it’s the best time to climb the mountain for its astonishing views of the Himalayan Vista. Five 8,000m peaks are visible from the summit including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga.

J.O.M Roberts, who is regarded as one of the greatest Himalayans explorers of the world ascended to the summit of Mera Peak on 20th May 1953 along with Sen Tenzing following the standard route. There are several routes to the top and all of them require technical skill. However, the route from the north is suitable for the trekkers with less experience. The western and southern-faced ascent is tougher and it is suited for experienced climbers.  The typical route to Mera Peak is through Zwatra La pass situated at the height of 4,610m. While travelling through Zwatra La Pass, one can witness amazing sight of antique villages with their rich traditions and cultures. Trekkers get to be more familiarized with the route because this route is comparatively longer. 

Mera Peak Trekking is best option for a trekker with modest experience of mountaineering. Its elevation is a challenge for a trekking peak. On the way to the top, one has to encounter with high and difficult passes, however basic technical skills of mountaineering should overcome these barriers. Trekking to the top of Mera Peak leads to the real mountaineering experiences.
