Overview

Mera Peak is 6476m and is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. At this altitude, the oxygen content of air is less than half of what it is at sea level – for this reason, we would not recommend you take on Mera as your first high-altitude trek. You need to understand how your body acclimatizes to the altitude before taking on a climb like Mera Peak.

The trek into the peak provides a fantastic chance to enjoy all aspects of the Himalayan experience, from the lush green forests of the lower Khumbu region before crossing high passes and making way up into the more sparse and rocky upper reaches. As we near the Northern approaches of the peak we pass steep glaciers plunging into spectacular lakes behind huge ridges of a glacial moraine.

Mera Peak Trekking is the best option for a trekker with modest experience of mountaineering. Its elevation is a challenge for a trekking peak. On the way to the top, one has to encounter high and difficult passes, however basic technical skills of mountaineering should overcome these barriers. Trekking to the top of Mera Peak leads to real mountaineering experiences.
