Introduction to Mera Peak Climbing
Mera Peak Climbing is a combination of peak climbing and trekking. Mera Peak is located in the Everest region and it is the most popular climbing peak in Nepal after Island Peak. It is the highest permitted trekking peak in Nepal with an altitude of 6,654 meters. The summit of Mera Peak offers you a view of magnificent peaks above 8,000 meters, such as Mount Everest (8,848 m), Makalu (8,485 m), Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Cho Oyu (8,201 m), and Lhotse (8,516 m).
On your way to Mera base camp, you cross beautiful valleys, rhododendron green forests, bamboo, Jupiter, etc. You also have the opportunity to interact with the locals in the settlements and learn about their religion, culture, traditions, and way of life. The magnificent view of Mount Everest makes your journey even more exciting and extraordinary.
Mera Peak Climbing is a trekking peak as it is less than 7,000 meters high. And you can climb it without enough experience of the mountain however you need technical skills to climb. Climbing with weights on your back requires a lot of stamina and endurance. Pre-climbing training is important and this training will be provided to you by a professional guide during the trip.
Prepare for Climb Peak
You have to face some difficulties as you have to use different types of climbing equipment to reach the top of the peak. So you should prepare in advance both physically and mentally. Aerobic and cardio exercises are the best way to boost your stamina and increase the body’s endurance capacity.
Don’t ignore the fact that insurance is mandatory because the mountain weather changes suddenly and is not in your favor. Some people make the mistake of taking a light climb to Mera Peak, which is a big mistake. Mera Peak climbing route takes you to the rocky and sloppy region so you need a climbing guide who has completed an advanced climbing course and is insured.
Teahouses are available almost everywhere on the trail, but for 2 days you have to set camp at base camp and high camp. Spring and autumn are the best time to climb the mountain and enjoy the amazing views of Himalayan Vista. Our experienced team has prepared an itinerary keeping in mind all the aspects. However, we tailor an itinerary according to your time and wishes.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
