Mera Peak

Altitude 6476m, 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.

Description

A spectacular route to Mera Peak

The route we take 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 but sleep does not come easy at this altitude; especial 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 thee 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.
