Brief Introduction-Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak (6,476m) is one of the most popular and highest (6,476m) among the NMA’s trekking peaks in Nepal. It’s also a perfect peak to learn basic mountaineering skills before attempting big mountains. The ascent of the Mera peak does not require as much technical expertise in comparison to many other trekking peaks however a high-level fitness is mandatory to ascent this peak. Mera Peak is also an ideal peak for mountaineering training courses which also includes glacier walk during the climb. The view of Nepal's Himalayan range from the summit of Mera peak is incredible. In order to reach the summit of Mera peak, you must be physically fit and thoroughly acclimatized to the mountain climate.

Journey Overview

Our trekking begins with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla (gate way of Everest region). We slowly make our way south through the terraced fields that line the Dudh Kosi to Puiyan and on to Pangom. Our gradual acclimatization program means we will stop at the hamlet of Niumso and use a gorgeous bamboo-surrounded forest camp at Chetra-Tenga before heading up to the village of Khote. This first section is over good trails through varied country. Some of the trekking trail in this area has only been opened few years back and must have taken a mammoth effort to build, with stairs and terraces that skirt waterfalls and bluffs.
As we approach the tiny village of Tagnag, At Tagnag, we spend an extra day for rest and acclimatization. We take the opportunity to do a side trip from Tagnag, perhaps a day walk on the flanks of Mt. Kusum Kanguru to help our bodies acclimatize. A trail over the old flood outflow from Lake Sabai-Tsho and pass an underground river leads us to a yak pasture and up to Khare. Rocky outcrops, moraine ridges and stunning side valleys allow us some further days of exploration and acclimatization. At Khare/Mera La Camp, we do some basic training on rope and play with some climbing gears as a pre-training camp. Next day we climb straight to high camp (5,780m) and go for final summit push on Mera Peak the next day very early morning and possibly descent all the way down to Khare. We have a spare day on our itinerary for any emergency purpose, and finally 3 days -trek out to Lukla via Zatra La and fly back to KTM.

Fitness Necessity for Mera Peak

Most of our trekking peaks are over 6,000m; therefore we count it as a tough trip. Your tough level of fitness is really important for this trek. So we strongly suggest preparing yourself for good physical fitness level. You do not need to be an athlete but a good level of overall fitness is important. Being fit will certainly improve your chances of reaching your chosen summit. As an indication, you should be able to walk 8 km / 5 miles with a maximum height gain of 800m / 2,000ft with a 10kg rucksack in 5 hours or less.
In order to get ready for this challenge, you need to be trained at least for about 4 to 6 months to prepare yourself as a strong candidate. You can go to the fitness center every morning for about 2 hours, do hiking every weekend with increasing weights on your pack (i.e. 7kg, 10kg, 13 kg, 16kg and up to 20kg). Manage some time for cycling for a couple of hours for 3 or 4 times a week. However, during climbing, there might be little symptoms of altitude illness like mild headache, fatigue, etc. but take it as normal and just drink a lot of water (4 – 5 liters) every day. On this trek, you need to be able to hike 6 – 10 hours over hilly terrain up to 6,000m of altitude with a daypack. 

Experience Required

All of our trekking peaks climbing trips are accessible to experienced trekkers and those who have done some climbing trips in European mountains in order to take another challenge on the Himalayas Mountains. This trip will be helpful if you want to gain some knowledge about mountaineering and have a future plan to climb the BIG Mountains.
If you have any previous mountaineering experiences and well knowledge about playing with mountaineering gears, good with rock climbing and ice climbing will increase the chances of reaching thesummit but previous trekking and mountaineering experiences are not mandatory and also doesn’t require any technical experience. Note that if you are participating in one of the technical climbing peak then you must have well knowledge about playing with mountaineering climbing gears (i.e. crampon with boot, Ice axe, harness, ropes, jumars, prussiks, abseiling, moving past knots, anchor, etc.).Crampons are used for maximum grip and harness and ropes are used for maximum safety during climbing. But for those who have no mountaineering experience and skill but have got tough level of fitness, you will have basic training sessions by our guides about how to use the climbing gears during rest/acclimatization day. So we always make sure regarding the safety of the team and the successful climb of the peak.
