Mera Peak Climbing


Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing takes us to Mera Peak (6,476m/21,247 ft) which is Nepal's highest trekking mountain. J.O.M Roberts, who is considered one of the world's greatest Himalayan adventurers, climbed the traditional path to the Mera Peak summit on 20 May 1953 along with Sen Tenzing. There are many paths to the top and they all require professional expertise. The road from the north is therefore ideal for less experienced trekkers whereas the climbing to the west and south is ideal for accomplished climbers. The standard path to Mera Peak is across the 4,610m high Zwatra La pass. When passing through Zwatra La Pass, with its rich customs and cultures, one can encounter spectacular views of ancient villages. You will march through the uninhabited Hongu and Hinku valleys where Sherpa from the South, near Pangkongma, is often seen grazing their cattle during the grass-growing monsoon season. From the summit, you can see five 8,000 m peaks like Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga. There are also some magnificent forests, huge moraines, glacial lakes and impressive peaks like Charmlang and Baruntse. Mera Peak climbing is an ideal choice for those with mild mountaineering experience. Our Mera peak itinerary has been carefully planned to enable the climbers to slowly acclimatize. In the spring and autumn seasons, we preferably ascend Mera Peak because it is the perfect time to climb the mountain with its spectacular views of the Himalayan vista.
