Trip Introduction;
Mera Peak is officially the highest trekking peak of Nepal’s permitted trekking peaks. Mera Peak offers a real mountaineering adventure with thrilling experience inside the very popular Everest and Khumbu region of Nepal. The peak rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the uninhabited valleys of Hinku and Honku. Mera Peak was first climbed on 20 May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing. However, the proper ascend of Mera Peak was made in 1975 by French climbers Marcel Jolly, G. Baus and C.Honnis following the same route as Roberts but traversing along the connecting ridge to the further summit.

Massive number of climbers choose Mera Peak because it offers unlimited climbing adventure as well as stunning scenery of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Amadablam and many other snow-capped peaks inside Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park. Mera Peak Climbing is an excellent option for those seeking an adventurous climbing and memorable trekking experience in Everest region. All in all one gets to experience the highland Sherpa cultural villages and explore Buddhist monasteries, mountain glaciers and the rich flora and fauna of Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.

Mera Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition begins with a scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest region of Nepal. After landing at Lukla we start our trek over an ascending trail towards untouched and less crowded valley. Our trek passes through several charming villages, frozen waterfalls, dense forests and agricultural farmlands with spectacular scenery until we reach Mera Peak Base Camp. At the Base Camp, we will spend some time for acclimatization and preparation for Mera Peak Climbing. Fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the necessary climbing gears, we will follow the guidance of our experienced climbing expert. Tackling several technical climbing sections we head towards Mera Peak summit. Our tiring climb to the summit is rewarded with sensational views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Amadablam and many other peaks within Everest region. We will spend short quality time at the summit and descend down following the same route. For our return journey, we will retrace our steps back to reach Lukla.

Mera Peak Climbing with 'NGT'

We were a group of four people from Germany, interested to trek and climb Mera Peak. Fortunately, we jumped into Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We were welcomed warmly into their office and discussed our interest on Mera Peak Climbing.

At first we were in doubt, but after the completion of Mera Peak Climbing, we were very satisfied with the team’s professional service and caring nature. Reaching the summit of Mera Peak was truly fantastic with best views of high mountain valleys and of course the chains of surrounding high mountains. From the summit we had a great time – looking at Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and countless number of surrounding mountains.

Apart from the adventurous climbing experience – we also enjoyed trekking along the peaceful paths with green forests and friendly local cultures. Our guide – Dendi Sherpa, always took care of us and really made a huge effort for our successful summit climb. We recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for those wanting to do any adventure related activities in Nepal. We will definitely come back to do some more climbing in near future with NGT.

Best Regards,
Albert + Jolanka + Sigfrid + Suzanne [From Germany]

The whole crew were friendly and caring.

Words are not enough to describe the feeling when reaching the Mera peak summit. It was a  great feeling, while we enjoyed the stunning views of world’s high mountains. Many gratitude to Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition including all its members who guided us all the way to Mera Peak. For us, it was an achievement of our lifetime.
