Mera Peak

Mera Peak


From £3,250
Altitude 6,476m Grade: 2B

The highest of Nepal's Trekking Peaks - At 6476m Mera Peak is the highest 'trekking peak' suitable for anyone with little or no previous experience of using an ice axe and crampons but have a high level of fitness.

A spectacular route to Mera Peak

The route we take on Mera Peak is well within the reach of regular mountain walkers with a good level of fitness. Our careful programme of acclimatisation is designed to maximise your chance of comfortably reaching this special summit.

During the course of this expedition we are constantly rewarded with fine views of world famous peaks, including the towering Everest and Lhotse. Mera Peak’s notable summit provides one of the most spectacular viewpoints in Nepal. This magical vantage point offers stunning views of five 8000m peaks, Everest and Lhotse to the north, Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east and the majestic Cho Oyu to the west.

Mera Peak summit day

Our group will travel to High Camp for Mera Peak at 6476m and rest there. Sleep does not come easy at this altitude, especially with the added excitement of climbing a major Himalayan peak the next day, so getting up at between two and four a.m. is no hardship to team members. It is cold however, and we will aim to be fully kitted out, roped up and in a slow and steady rhythm by dawn. It can take anything from three to eight hours to reach the summit. We will move in groups of three to four clients with either a western guide or strong Khumbu Sherpa to allow people to move at their own pace. Although this is hard work the views are outstanding and the ground is easy. The descent is very quick and we will aim to reach Khare to recuperate after the summit bid.

This expedition can be extended to include the slightly more technical Island Peak (6189m) via a crossing of the Amphu Labsta Pass, returning to Lukla down the main Everest trail.

Great support before the trip, kept updated with any news about it. Once in Nepal our lead guide Graham was superb. His knowledge is fantastic, his advice and guidance was invaluable and when I became ill he was there to help me through some difficult times. Graham was a great guy whose confidence and abilities were inspiring. Every day had a highlight, whether it was from inspiring panoramas, great company, supportive guides and good food.

Great views on summit day and great to summit. We have really fond memories of our local crew (guides and porters).

Richard Garratt · 6 years ago ·

I summited Mera with Adventure Peaks October 2016 and would thoroughly recommend this expedition. The scenery throughout the expedition is beautiful, none more so than when you start to climb the Mera Glacier towards high camp. The longer trek in for acclimatisation is something you will definitely appreciate not least because you get to see a better variety of scenery by avoiding retracing your steps. Chris was an exceptional group leader who exuded knowledge and skill and ensured the well-being of the group at all times. The team of Sherpas and porters were also excellent and definitely lived up to the friendly Nepalese reputation. I wouldn't hesitate to use Adventure Peaks again; there may be cheaper operators out there but it soon became very obvious on this trip that you get what you pay for, every penny was worth it to ensure that I enjoyed the trip and had the best chance of summitting.
