This is an excellent opportunity to climb Nepal’s highest peak without having to obtain a permit (6,476m/21,190ft). From the summit, you will have stunning views of several 8000m plus peaks, such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu. You will also get to see and understand how the Sherpa villagers’ in this mountainous region live. This climbing trek allows you to enjoy numerous stops at teahouses, overnight camping plus a real climbing adventure. All this and more while trekking inside the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.
The journey begins with a short scenic mountain flight to Lukla followed by a trek through a number of Sherpa villages, noticeable by their Gompas (monasteries), chortens (engraved stones) and multi-colored Tibetan prayer flags. We will venture along more isolated and less trekked trails through the Hinku and Hunku valleys. We then head up to Mera Peak Base Camp, summit the peak and return with an adrenalin-pumped experience. Climbing Mera Peak is not a technical climb with slopes not exceeding 30 degrees. You will feel safe as fixed ropes will guide you to the summit following in your guide’s footsteps.
Accommodation is in teahouses during the trek right up until we get to Khare where we spend two nights in tented camps with the climbing crew (porters, cook, guide, and group leader). At Khare we will spend time acclimatizing, that is essential if climbing to higher altitudes such as Mera Peak.
We will then return to Lukla By helicopter and flight back to Kathmandu a scenic flight back to Kathmandu. This is a great combination of trekking and climbing that takes you to the summit of a substantial peak – without the fuss of obtaining climbing permits. Mera Peak climbing is an ideal choice for anyone with moderate mountaineering knowledge and experience. The most challenging aspect of this trek is getting acclimatized. You will need only basic climbing skills, which our guide can assist you with prior to your ascent to the summit.
