Mera Peak Climbing

Right next to Mount Everest lies the highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera Peak. The possibility of an actual mountain climb with minimum trekking experience has made Mera Peak among the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. And the sense of Victory is worth it. At 6,476 meters above sea level, Mera Peak is the highest you can go without mountain climbing permits. This Mera peak climbing is perfect for experienced trekkers and new climbers.

The Mera Peak climb can be a practice peak if you plan to conquer other high peaks in Nepal above 8,000 meters. Most importantly, you can experience the thrill of climbing without having to pay thousands of dollars for a climbing permit. Mera’s peak climbing price is affordable. This short 17-day journey gives a wholesome natural and cultural experience.

Mera Peak is itself the highest form of adventure. However, the views of the world’s highest peaks, like Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Kanchenjunga, make it even more enjoyable. Added to these interesting views, Everest’s unspoiled landscape and rich biodiversity make everything exciting.

Mera peak climbing commences with a Lulka flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla, we leave the classic Everest Base Camp route and head to Chhuthang. Crossing our first high passes at Zatrawala, we get to Tuli Kharka and walk to Kothe. Then, we get to Thangnak, reach Khare, and finally land at Mera Base camp. We must settle here for a day before climbing High Camp and eventually conquering the summit.

After the beautiful Victory, we plan to get back to Khare. On the same way back, we get to Kothe and Tuli Kharka. Climbing the Zatrawal one last time, we get to Lukla and fly to Kathmandu. Although you leave the mountains, the memories of the trip will remain with you forever.

Since we are planning our journey, our experienced guides and climbers will be available for advice. Your support team will have one porter per person and one guide for a group of 4-5 people.

You’ll travel with skilled guides who have led Mera peak trekking groups multiple times and know much about high-altitude trips. They will help you plan with information and support.

The last part of the climb is very steep and you need to be careful with the instructions. Getting to the top, you can see the views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Kanchenjunga. We plan to reach the summit before mid-day as the wind after that is really strong. Then, we walk for about four hours to Khare.

How Difficult Is Mera Peak Climbing?

how difficult is mera peak climbing

Difficulties In Terms Of Distance:

On the 14 trekking days, we will be walking for 5 to 7 hours each day. The total distance of the Mera Peak climb is about 150 km. To cover this distance, you should be physically fit, especially without any heart or lung disease. Prior to the tour, some exercises like jogging, running, swimming, cycling, push-ups, squats, etc. prepare your body. You must practice these exercises for a couple of months before landing in Nepal to lower the Mera Peak difficulty.

Altitude Sickness During Mera Peak Climbing:

As with all high-altitude treks, the Mera Peak trek also bears the risk of altitude sickness. The sudden change of altitude from Kathmandu to Lukla (1400m to 2860m) can be troublesome for anyone. As you climb to the Mera Peak altitude of 6,461 meters, air pressure can take a toll on the human body and increase the Mera Peak’s difficulty.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) shows symptoms such as nausea, insomnia, loss of appetite, and diarrhea. These symptoms can be moderate for some; they can be fatal for others. In severe cases, you need to walk back to a lower altitude and even require airlifting due to extreme conditions. This is why we don’t suggest climbing Mera Peak solo for other female and male trekkers.

Therefore, you should avoid triggering altitude sickness by following measures.

  • Try to travel less than 1,000 meters each day, and plan an acclimatization day for every 3,000 feet of ascent.
  • Keep your body hydrated with mild, warm water and fully avoid alcoholic drinks.
  • Eat plenty of carbs with healthy snacks, including lots of whole grains.
  • Consult with your physician prior to your treks to get the medications in case of severe symptoms

Technical Difficulty:

Trekking Mera Peak also demands technical climbing skills. But you don’t need this training beforehand- the guide will teach you simple ways to use crampons, ropes, and axes before you head for the trek.

Note: Some people also include Mera Peak and Island Peak or Mera Peak and Lobuche Peak climbing in a single trip. Before you do that, we suggest analyzing Mera Peak vs Island Peak and then climbing one at a time. Thankfully, there haven’t been any Mera Peak deaths yet. With a responsible team, you are likely to be fine.

How Much Does It Cost For Mera Peak Climbing?

Before knowing this, you need to have two kinds of information. Firstly, Mera Peak climbing is a total camping trek. This means you must carry all food and camping material from Kathmandu, which requires additional porters and cooks. So, it is more expensive than other popular treks in Nepal.

However, Mera Peak climbing is cheaper than real mountain climbing, where you need to issue a costly climbing permit and hire professional climbers. In general, the Mera Peak climbing cost is USD 2305 with Himalayan masters, including almost everything.

With Himalayan master’s economic Mera Peak climbing price, you can travel for less than $2500. We offer the best price for excellent facilities. Mera’s peak climbing cost for Nepali can go down to about Nepalese rupees of 1 lakh if you don’t hire many porters and travel with a minimum facility.

Mera Peak Climbing Permit Cost

The Summiting Mera Peak expedition requires permits with costs varying by season. Spring (Mar-Apr-May) costs USD 250, autumn (Sep-Oct-Nov) USD 125, winter (Dec-Feb) USD 70, and summer (Jun-Jul-Aug) USD 70. Additionally, a USD 500 garbage charge is collected. National park permits for Sagarmatha and Makalu Barun cost USD 30 each, and a local community fee of NPR 2000 supports trail improvement during the Mera peak trek.


If there’s an emergency during your Mera Peak trek, Lukla has both a hospital and an airport for your rescue. Evacuating someone by helicopter depends on the Mera peak weather and visibility. In an emergency, the team, guide, and nearby helpers will work together to move the person to a safe spot. Then, they’ll aim for a place where evacuation is possible. Sometimes, bad weather delays helicopter help, so being self-sufficient and managing things independently in the mountains is crucial.

If someone feels unwell and needs to descend, an option is to rent a horse locally for about $150.00 per day. Helicopter evacuation can be arranged through your insurance, but you must talk directly to the insurance company. To do this, share your policy number, name, address, and the date you paid for the insurance policy. It’s important to communicate these details to open a case and explain the situation.

Mera Peak Gear Essentials

Prepare for your Mera Peak trekking adventure with essential gear. Pack a large duffle bag or backpack, a 45-litre daypack, waterproof stuff sacks, and an expedition jacket (Primaloft or down). Keep warm with a Goretex waterproof jacket, trousers, fleece tops, and base layers. Ensure proper footwear with mountaineering boots graded B1 or B2 for crampons. Include trekking boots, hut shoes, and accessories like sunglasses, gloves, and hats. Your kit should also have a 4-season sleeping bag, a thermoset or thick foam sleeping mat, and basic mountaineering tools such as crampons, a harness, a walking axe, and climbing slings.  

Footwear and First Aid Considerations

Choose boots that fit well, are warm, and allow crampon use. B1-graded boots are suitable to climb Mera Peak, but if you plan on more challenging climbs, consider B2 or B3 boots. Keep your first aid kit simple with pain relievers, wound care items, antihistamines, sun protection, and medications as needed. Include altitude sickness prevention like acetazolamide tablets (Diamox) with a prescription. With these essentials, you’ll be well-prepared for a safe and comfortable climb to Mera Peak.

Mera Peak Climbing Best Time and Route

After exploring cultural sites in Kathmandu, we fly early to Lukla, the Gateway to Everest. Our journey starts with a walk-through Sherpa village, following the mountaineering tradition. We gradually ascend, passing Zatrwa La pass to reach ThuliKharka. Moving to Kothe, then to Thangnak for acclimatization, we continue to Khare, the last teahouse stop. Next, we head to the high camp, spend a night in a tent, conquer Mera Peak trekking, and return along the same route. Himalayan Masters ensures hassle-free and quality service experience, carefully planning for acclimatisation and health. Skilled Sherpa guides handle Himalayan challenges.

Best Season for Mera Peak Climbing

Let’s talk about Mera peak weather. Considering four seasons, choosing the right time to climb Mera Peak is crucial. Due to stable weather conditions, spring and autumn stand out as the best periods. During spring (March to May), nature rejuvenates, and the weather is warm, making the climb enjoyable. Autumn (September to November) is even more favourable, offering clear weather, low chances of sudden changes, and a festive atmosphere in Nepal. Winter (December to February) is an option for the adventurous, with chilly temperatures but less crowded routes. Climbing in monsoon (June to August) is not recommended due to heavy rainfall and muddy trails, but early June or late August might provide clearer skies after the rain.

Benefits of Each Season for Mera Peak Climbing

Blossoming flowers and comfortable temperatures make the Mera Peak trek pleasant in spring. Autumn promises clear weather, low chances of sudden changes, and an ideal temperature for climbing. Winter, though cold, offers less crowded routes and discounted services. Climbing during monsoon may bring quiet trails, discounted services, and clear views after rainfall, but it’s essential to choose early June or late August for better Mera peak weather conditions. Understanding these seasons helps plan a safe and enjoyable Mera Peak expedition.

Accommodation In Mera Peak Climbing

accomodation in mera peak climbing

Mera Peak climbing has three kinds of accommodation depending on the season and route. The first one is hotels in Kathmandu. You will be staying in three-star hotels in Kathmandu that are pretty luxurious with all the necessary amenities. You can have an attached bathroom in the room with a hot shower. Also, there are other unlimited options for hotels in Thamel, and you can switch to higher facilities of your own.

Tea houses/ local lodges: In the lower region, ie. Up to Namche, we will be staying in tea houses- a small yet comfortable local lodge. The rooms only have two single beds, a mattress, pillows, and a clean white sheet. But the option of a tea house is only available for the lower region.

Camps: In the higher region, i.e. above Namche, we stay in a tent/ camp. We will primarily be carrying all your food and accommodation for the 17-day Mera Peak climbing journey. The porters from Himalayan Masters will help you take everything for the camp and set the tent for the night. The cooks will prepare your food, and you can trek easily.

The trekkers can choose any accommodation of their preference for the lower altitude- either the tea house or the camps. But, as we move higher, we cannot find the tea houses and thus stick with the camps. Camping trek in Nepal can be tricky (and expensive), but it’s a true adventure into nature.


Can beginners climb Mera Peak?

Yes, Mera Peak is a trekking peak that the beginner’s trekkers can complete. It would help if you had some technical climbing training and acclimatization before the trek, but after some preparation, it is definitely possible for a newbie to complete this trek.
