Essential Information - Mera Peak Climbing

Why Mera Peak Climbing?

Nepal falls on the top destination of Mera peak climbing and mountain exploring. Among many high mountain peaks in Nepal, Mera Peak climbing is also one of the high peaks in the Everest region. Experts have divided Mera Peak climbing into three primary summits. They are Mera North, Mera Central, and Mera South.

The elevation of Mera Peak falls under 7000 meters from sea level. The height of Mera North is 6,476 meters, Mera Central is 6,461 meters, and Mera South is 6,065 meters. The first person to discover and climb Mera Peak climbing was Jimmy Roberts in the fall of 20 May 1953. People found the route to Mera Peak when Jimmy Roberts took this way after the ascent of Mount Everest.

The government of Nepal honored him with Everest’s national award in 2005. Mera Peak is one of the most climbed peaks in Nepal. As this peak falls on the Mount Everest region from the top of Mera, you will get the best view of the Himalayas. You can closely witness five mountains worldwide from the top of Mera Peak climbing.

You can see Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga. You can also view several mountain peaks connected below. You can take any route from all directions to the summit. However, the path from the south and western face of Mera Peak is complex and challenging for climbers. So, people usually trek from the peak’s northern front.

Mera peak climbing is very popular among people. One of the main reasons for its fame is that this trek provides the best view of the high mountains together. Nepal’s height of the Mera Peak trek will challenge you with the high altitude. To climb Mera Peak with ease, you will have to learn all the techniques and have some experience.

Accommodation and food during our Mera Peak Climbing

Food and lodging are vital things one needs to consider before trekking any place. There are different teahouses and hotels on the way to Mera Peak Climbing. As you gain altitude, the facilities and the varieties of food and housing start to decrease. You might not get a room in a hotel for accommodation. So you will always carry a tent, foam mattress, and toiletries.

For food, you will get typical Nepali food and drink. And also, the price of food and accommodation is very high because of less variety. And if you trek during peak seasons like spring and autumn, you might need help finding hotel rooms. But suppose you hike during a non-peak season like monsoon and winter. You will quickly get rooms and discounts sometimes.

During this trek, you will sleep in everything from forests to meadows to high snowy camps. You need to accede to the situation. You can choose the season to trek to Mera Peak according to your choice. Yet, April and May are the best times to walk to Mera Peak climbing. If you like winter, you can trek during the winter season.

If you love any other season, you can hike according to that. But for touring to Mera, we prefer peak climbing in dry seasons. There are different problems that you might face during the trek. One of the common problems you might face during the Mera peak climbing is the duration of your trip. It depends on the route you choose for the climb.

Best Time for Mera Peak Climbing

We have the best two seasons in Nepal for peak climbing in Nepal. Autumn and spring are the best times for Mera Peak climbing. The Mera Peak climb between October, November, or March, and May is perfect. The weather is clear during this time, and the day is long in spring. But you must always wear suitable climbing clothing.

The temperature is low and freezing after the Mera Peak base camp. The weather after base camp is unstable. The bad weather and the cool temperature add thrill and adventure to the Mera Peak climb. Furthermore, we need dry and stable weather to climb to Mera Peak safely. Strong winds and snowfalls might double the difficulty of the climb. So, to avoid these problems, we must choose the right time for the rise.

Flight delay/cancelation and changes in the Mera peak climbing itinerary

Be aware that Lukla’s flights depend on weather conditions. Sometimes, flight delays or changes occur. We constantly endeavor to make sure you reach your destination on time. And for our Mera peak climbing, we will re-arrange your ticket to the next available flight. In the case of Lukla’s flight delay, the client will bear all extra expenses.

Suppose flight delays to Lukla occur on this Mera peak climbing. Then, we will endeavor to accommodate you with the same hotel you use in Kathmandu on your arrival day.

We will look for other hotels if it is unavailable until we confirm your flight. We will adjust the itinerary to ensure you get as much time as possible in the mountains. It means reducing/removing the Kathmandu nights at the end of the trip. Suppose the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu gets canceled. You must cover the additional night cost and food.

Weather and temperature conditions of Mera Peak climbing

Before trekking any place, you must know all the required information about the trek. The weather and temperature of the place depend upon the time of trekking. If you Mera peak during winter, the weather might be frigid. You might even suffer from frostbite during the winter season. If you trek during monsoon season, you might need clear views of the mountains.

The trail will be slippery. There may be a delay in trekking time due to monsoon rain. But if you do Mera peak climbing in spring and autumn, you will have a clear view of the mountains. It will be much easier to trek during this season. The trail will also be fresh and full of flowers during this season. The average temperature of Mera peaks during the spring and autumn seasons, which are 5 – 10 degrees Celsius.

There are crowds on the trail to Mera Peak during this season. You might not get rooms in the hotel, so you must book your trek early. The following is some advice for the Mera Peak Climbing Equipment list. You can choose the packing list per your interest, elevation, season, and requirements. You can hire most of the equipment in Kathmandu. Remember to pack light.

The difficulty of Mera peak Climbing

When doing Mera Peak climbing, the higher altitude you gain, the more difficulty you may suffer. Earlier, experts graded Mera Peak as alpine grade F, which is easy and straight for trekking. But now, due to various changes in the glacier, Mera peak climbing has alpine grade DP. It means it is challenging to trek.

As Mera Peak is the highest peak in Nepal, there is a high chance of suffering from high-altitude sickness. Many people traveling to Mera Peak turn back because of altitude sickness. The oxygen level at the top of Mera Central (6461 meters) is 47 percent. Almost all the trekkers use supplemental oxygen because breathing at such a low oxygen level is tricky.

Because of altitude sickness, trekkers might feel nausea, headache, and fever. If you feel like altitude sickness, you should slow your trek. It would help if you had a well-devised itinerary to avoid the risk of altitude sickness. It would be best to have proper acclimatization, contingency day, and training. Altitude sickness is widespread for the people trekking to Mera Peak.

If you take the appropriate care and precautions, you can overcome this problem. The weather conditions of a place, especially at a higher altitude, are unpredictable. A perfect day for trekking can turn into the worst day. And the change in weather conditions can also directly affect treks and trekkers. So, while trekking to Mera peak climbing, you must note the weather conditions. You must also pack your gear and equipment according to that.

You must keep your body hydrated while trekking in high-altitude places like Mera peak climbing. There are many taps on the trail to Mera Peak, so you will always have to carry a water bottle with you. Also, you will have to take a purification tablet to purify the water.

Having enough water will also keep you away from altitude sickness. Remember, you should not have stiff drinks like alcoholic beverages while trekking. It may damage your heart and cause serious heart problems.

  • Make your schedule flexible.

You will have to take a flight during our Mera peak climbing. You should know about the flight and other factors that may delay your trek. Flight delay is a common problem as the weather is only sometimes stable. Likewise, you might have to plan extra days if you trek during monsoon season.

Rainfall might interrupt you while walking. Also, you might feel unwell during the trek, so you should take a day off while planning the hike. It would help if you prepared some extra days.

  • Have a positive attitude.

Mera peak climbing is a long trek. As mentioned above, trekking may have many problems, so you should be calm. Instead, if any problem arises, you should relax and work patiently. It would help if you were mentally prepared for everything. It would help if you had a positive mind while trekking so that you could enjoy this trek.

Thank you, Puru, for an Excellent Mera peak climb trip. You were very helpful to me during the planning of my journey. You always answered e-mails promptly. You managed the equipment as you promised.

It was very nice to be so warmly welcomed at the airport. When I arrived, the trekking guide was good. He ensured I reached the summit. It was a very successful trek!

Thank you, once again, Above the Himalayan trekking company.

I trekked with Puru to Tengboche and Pochara the first time and rated ATH excellent then. Puru and the team cared for me so well that I returned to climb Mera Peak with the same excellent service (trekking guide, porter, and this time climbing guide).

Puru continuously checks in to see how things are going, and I could always count on his people for help along the trek (14 days). Thanks again, Puru, you are the best!!

“This was my second time heading to the Himalayas and the second time to use Above The Himalayas. As my first experience was fabulous, and I thought it couldn’t improve, I was proven wrong.

Yet again, Puru and his team pulled out all the stops to make this climb of Mera Peak something I will never forget! From the first email I sent to Puru about organizing the climb to the last, the communication was perfect just before I flew to Kathmandu. Then, from the second I landed in Kathmandu to the second I left Kathmandu with Puru.

The climb of Mera Peak was challenging due to the high altitude and coldness you get from going up high. But all was made that much easier by the hospitality of my Guide. His superb knowledge of the route we were taking, knowing every mountain peak to ensure I was put in a comfy bed at night with the best food.

There is no other trekking/climbing company I would use other than Above The Himalayas.
Also, I am already planning on climbing 7,100 m this year. And yes, you guessed it, I will be using Puru and his company Above The Himalayas!”
