You can easily conquer this peak climbing journey with fundamental mountaineering skills, knowledge of high-altitude treks,  passion, and confidence. Come with us on the Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu Package and let the professional mountain guide who has summited almost the highest mountain guide you on this famous non-technical peak of Nepal in the Everest region. 

Mera Peak Climbing 17-Day Package Overview

Mera Peak Trek with Climb 17 Days Journey is the peak climbing package to choose from if you crave adventure, love climbing mountains, and want to explore new places. This thrilling journey takes you through forests, valleys, and glaciers until you reach the summit of Mera Peak. At 6476M, it's one of Nepal's highest trekking peaks and offers breathtaking Himalayan views. With experienced guides, comprehensive amenities, and a challenging but achievable goal, this package has everything you need. 

Despite being non-technical, this climbing Mera Peak adventure is not for the faint of heart. Rising over 6476M, Mera Peak is among the highest trekking peaks in the Himalayas. The climb requires crampons, ice axes, and ropes, but the rewards of standing on top of the snow-capped summit are well worth the effort.

Mera Peak Climbing's 17-Day Detailed Itinerary begins with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, followed by a trek through picturesque Sherpa villages and rhododendron forests to Mera Base Camp. After a day of acclimatization and ice climbing training, you'll make a summit bid, climbing over the snowy slopes of Mera Peak. Two summit days are planned in case of bad weather.

Reaching the summit of Mera Peak requires determination and stamina. The Climb to Mera Peak is technical, involving steep ice walls and rocky scrambles. However, many amateur climbers have achieved this thrilling feat with the help of experienced Sherpa guides and porters. The rewards from the top are unparalleled—views stretching from Makalu to Everest, an ocean of snow peaks as far as the eye can see.

An added highlight of this Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu adventure is the opportunity to experience authentic Sherpa culture. You'll stay in cozy teahouses in remote villages, eating traditional meals and learning about the local way of life. The scenic trek through the Hinku and Hongu valleys is a cultural journey, allowing insight into the daily lives of mountain peoples who inhabit this rugged region in the shadow of the Himalayan giants.

Is Mera Peak Climbing 17-Day Package Suitable For Me?

So, you've set your sights on conquering one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal. Mera Peak offers stunning views and a challenging climb. But before you book your trek, ensure this adventure suits your fitness level.

  • Have you done any high-altitude climbing before? While Climb to Mera Peak Journey doesn't require technical climbing skills, the high elevation (over 21,000 feet!) can be taxing. If this is your first high-altitude trek, prepare to take it slow and listen to your guide. But with some solid training and determination, Mera Peak is absolutely within reach for novice climbers.
  • This trek requires a high level of endurance and stamina. You should be comfortable hiking 6-8 hours daily for multiple days, often at high elevations. Before setting off for the 17-Day Mera Peak Climbing Trip focus on cardio exercises like running, swimming, or biking. Strength training your legs and core will also help. If you stick to a regular workout routine, you'll be ready to take on Mera Peak.
  • The higher you climb, the less oxygen in the air. Not everyone adapts well to high altitude; altitude sickness can be dangerous if not taken seriously. The best way to prevent altitude sickness on your Mera Peak Climbing 17-Day adventure is to allow enough time for your body to acclimate as you ascend. Drink plenty of water, avoid alcohol, and be on the lookout for symptoms like headaches, nausea, or dizziness. If you experience severe symptoms, descend immediately.
  • The Mera Peak climb is an ideal trek for physically fit adventurers. By training hard, allowing time to acclimate, and listening to your body, this magical trek in the Himalayas could be the thrill of a lifetime. 

Can A Beginner Go For Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu 17-Day Package?

Mera Peak can be a great first challenge if you're new to mountaineering but eager to tackle a Himalayan peak. While the 17-day trek requires endurance, the technical difficulty is relatively low, making it suitable for beginners with some preparation.

  • You must be physically healthy to comfortably complete the Climb to Mera Peak Journey. Start training months in advance by hiking, jogging, and doing strength exercises. 
  • The trek involves long days, up to 8 hours of walking, often at high altitudes. Be ready for ascents up to 1,500 feet in a day. If you're not accustomed to intense cardio exercise, build up your endurance over time.
  • Mera Peak reaches over 21,000 feet, so altitude sickness is a risk. Go slowly, stay hydrated, and watch for symptoms like nausea, headaches, and shortness of breath. Descend immediately if they appear. 
  • As a beginner going on the Mera Peak Climb in the Spring 17-day adventure, I work with an experienced guide service that provides quality gear. Be prepared for variable weather by packing layers, insulation, rain jackets, hats, gloves, hiking boots, and thermal undergarments. Your safety gear should include sunglasses, sunscreen, basic first aid supplies, and important medications.
  • With the help of experienced guides and Sherpa porters, your 17-day Climb of Mera Peak can be safe and unforgettable. Mera Peak provides a real sense of accomplishment and perspectives that will stay with you for life.

Upon arrival in Lukla, our technical team and staff will meet with us to provide a briefing about the Mera Peak Expedition. Then, we will trek eastwards from Lukla on the trail above Dudh Koshi River, which will deviate from the principal route to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. The trail goes through the thickets of rhododendrons, fir, and birch following the streams among which are small. Finishing about 3 hours, we come to Chhuthang where we spend the night at a tea house.

Our hike will start at Chhuthang and we will head towards Thuli Kharka before the darkness of the evening arrives. As per the Climbing Mera Peak in 17 Day trip Itinerary, the beginning part takes us down from a steep ridge, a part of the Kalo Himal Ridge that is within the Nau Lakh range. Leaving the Khumbu Valley behind, we go to the Hinku Valley which is crawling with crags.

The locality of this area best represents the traditional cultural and ancestral roots of the Buddhist community. This trail, which is part of the Mera Peak Trek with the Climb route, will be accompanied by various chortens, and then we will return to the elaborated Zatrwa La pass (4610m). You'll see the green forests and the Hinku Valley down into the valley. Jumping over the landscapes of Dudh Kosi, we will have spectacular views of Lumdung Himal, Karyolang Peak, Kongdi Ri, and Numbur Himal. With our ascent the landscape of Hinku Valley widens, thus providing peaks at Solukhumbu District, which is remote.

Today, as per the Climbing Mera Peak in Autumn or Spring Itinerary, trekking takes us through the amazing rhododendron forest from Thuli Kharka to Kothe. The trail goes down to Thuli Kharka, which is the shortest time of the climb for Mera Peak.

For us, the route is more than just a way to reach our destination; it is an opportunity to take in the breathtaking sight of the South Face of Mera Peak, which becomes more magnificent as we progress. Our first stop is Mosom Kharka, where we will absorb the magnificent views of Mera Peak and other summits that make up the Mahalangur Mountain Range. Keeping on the ridge of Hinku valley, we would ultimately end up at Kothe, where we would get comfortable accommodations in a small tea house.

On the sixth day of the Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu trip, we'll move ahead of the trail that runs along the ridge of the Hinku Valley.

We will follow a gently ascending path and cross Kote, following the route through the rocky areas and yak pastures. As per the Mera Peak Climbing 17 Day Detailed Itinerary our destination is Gondishung, reaching 4180 metres. This age-old settlement is considered very holy and it has on its west bank the Buddhist Monastery which we will have a chance to visit.

Today's hike on the Climb to Mera Peak Journey will be very demanding as we will be going up to 5000 meters above sea level, touching the heights of 5045 meters, and then resting at Khare. At such a high altitude, the atmosphere will be very thin, and there will be less oxygen; therefore, climbers and trekkers should take the required measures before they start their way up. Our course will lead to the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier, where we will stay for a few days, acclimatize, and then go up to Dig Kharka pasture.

Next, on the 17-Day Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary, you will cross the rocky surface and reach the Himalayas, walking past Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers. We will cross the stream to find ourselves on a steep ridge. This ridge will be the route that will lead us to Khare Village at 5045 meters. The village of Khare is where we will be able to enjoy the views afforded by Mera Peak.

The first acclimation day as scheduled on the  Climb to Mera Peak Journey Itinerary is set at the base camp of Mera. This includes a progressive ascent to the lower altitude and a subsequent overnight halt. You must focus on these things for acclimatization:

  • Gradually ascend and descend
  • Make sure that there is enough rest and sleep.
  • Maintain hydration
  • Consume proper nutrition
  • Be prepared for the climate and altitude differences.

Climbers must get enough rest, drink water, and eat healthy food to survive at higher altitudes. People with medical problems must talk with doctors before starting Mera Peak Climbing.

Additionally, today's agenda for the Mera Peak Trek with Climb 17 Days Itinerary consists of training and briefing on the process of Mera peak climbing. This involves providing technical climbing training and teaching the ridge structure of Mera Peak. The training program will include using apparatus like crampons, axes, and ropes.

  • AccommodationTented Camps
  • MealsBreakfast-Lunch-Dinner
  • Altitude/Time5350m/ 3 to 4 Hours

We will be heading to Mera Base Camp today following the Mera Peak Climbing 17-Day Detailed Itinerary. It is situated 5350 m above sea level and usually takes around 4 hours from Khare Village. In addition, we will also be trekking to Mera La, which is 5415 m high. This segment consists of walking on an icy and steep glacier that demands that you use a rope, crampons, and an axe to prevent falling.

As we reach Mera Base Camp, we have to walk for another four hours to reach Mera High Camp and this ascent is the most challenging section of our Mera Peak Climbing. Technical skills, compliance with safety rules, and thorough planning are needed during this phase of the trip.

At the beginning, we will head to Mera La and then continue southwestern, with a view of Mera Peak and mountain ranges. The rejuvenating and breezy air will support us during our trip. Yet, the obstacle ahead on the 17-day Mera Peak Climbing Trip is the presence of crevasses, which in turn hinder the technicalities of the expedition. 

The crevasse slope will continually increase but it will also get wider thus making it easier for the professional mountaineers to walk to our High Camp at 5800m altitude. And that is just the forward direction. No words will do justice to the sublime sights, including peaks like Everest, Makalu, Nuptse, and Lhotse.

  • AccommodationTented Camps

The trek has ended from the base camp, and we can move on to the Mera High Camp. The only thing you will get to eat at the base camp is food that sherpas prepare for breakfast. The climb, starting from the base camp and leading to the Mera Peak Climbing Route through Mera La Pass, is stony and icy. Strangely enough, the way also seems as steep as before the Merac La Pass and does not lead downward.

Prepare to go through a narrow, long trail for long hours and keep moving even if you feel exhausted. Finally, you can encounter the magnificent view of the mountains and the cool breeze around the Mera High Camp. From this viewpoint, you can observe mountains like Everest, Nuptse, Baruntse, Chamlang, Makalu, and many others. A crew member will be sent to set up the campsite while you enjoy the scenery.

This is the best day on the 17 Day Mera Peak Climbing  Itinerary where we aim for the summit of Mera Peak. The journey with us begins in the early morning, and we are looking forward to the six-hour climb to the summit of Mera Peak.

The route goes through the glaciers, where we get to show our technical skills. Climbing, more than ever, is a must because as the air gets thinner, you have to be vigilant to keep altitude sickness at bay. While you're on a climb to Mera Peak, make good use of your axe, crampons, and climbing ropes to help you overcome the hurdles. We'll finally get to the top of the mountain by early afternoon where the peak dominates the views of Baruntse (7129m), Haling (7319m), NauLekh (6360m), and Makalu (8481m).

The scenery from the summit is breathtaking—Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, and others. After taking in the majestic landscape views, we will descend to Khare. There, we will celebrate our victory for completing the Mera Peak Trek with Climb and enjoy the warm atmosphere of the local teahouse, making it a perfect ending to the day of excitement and success.

Now, Dig Kharka and Dig Glacier are the things of your past. Being on your way down the trail and to lower grounds, this part of our Mera Peak Climbing journey will become a relaxing stroll.

After that, there is the Thangnak meadow, the summer grazing area where you will meet the people there and enjoy the serene atmosphere of Lungsumgba Gumba again. And so, as we summit the last leg of the Mera Peak Climbing adventure, we’ll be walking along the majestic Hinku River, leading you straight to Kothe Village which sits peacefully right on its bank.

After we finish our breakfast, we will start our journey along the step-by-step path alternately passing the picturesque forest trails clad with green rhododendron and pine trees. Today's leg of the Climb Mera Peak 17 Day Package Itinerary has proved to be more uphill climbs than downhill descents.

The higher we climb, the more amazing the views of Mera Peak, which we will enjoy as we walk along the ridge lines of the Hinku River's ridges. The last segment entails a continuous climb up to Tuli Kharka. This is the place where the mighty Himalayas tower above us. We will spend the night in a teahouse located in this wide pastureland, and we will enjoy the silence there.

This will be followed by the gradual descent to the Lukla side.

Today, as per the Mera Peak Climbing 17 Day itinerary we will be hiking for approximately 6-7 hours and getting to Lukla from Tuli Kharka.

Useful Info

When is the Best Time for 17 Days Mera Peak Climbing Trip?

The most preferable time to climb Mera Peak is in the autumn months (September to November) and spring (March to May). During these seasons, the weather remains serene, and there is very little chance of storms and monsoon rains that can affect the climbing experience. The temperature during the daytime is also suitable for climbing and lies between -1°C and 15°C at peak hours. Thus, difficulties are diminished, and the climbing experience is made more enjoyable and safer for mountaineers.

Autumn Mera Peak Climbing

Although both Autumn and Spring are good for the Climb to Mera Peak Journey, the autumn season, i.e., between September and November, is a great climbing season to be on the safe side. Upon the monsoon season vanishing, the atmosphere stays more inviting during the fall. In order to take that, you have the chance for a supreme sight and summit success rate. The temperatures were moderate as well at that time. Autumn is the season with the best atmosphere so most trekkers choose this season and you'll find the Mera Peak Trek with Climb routes and tea houses crammed with them at this time of the year. On rainy days, there may be clearer views of the hill and a higher volume of vehicles. Make sure you book your room early enough to avoid congestion and the headache that may come with it. You'll have to schedule the ascent in late September/ early October to miss any unpredictable bad weather or snow left on the mountain.

Spring Mera Peak Climbing

Spring season (March to May) is another perfect time of the year to go up on Mera Peak. They do this earlier, before the arrival of summer monsoon in the region. In the spring, the temperatures start increasing, which means very pleasant weather conditions for that time of year on the Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu journey. In addition, rainfall is also lower during this period. The very much like autumn weather conditions of high visibility and comforting climate contribute to the most beautiful sights and the highest number of open summits. You might come across a bit of snow lingering in places with greater altitude. Indeed, the  Mera Peak Climbing routes won't be as congested as they are in autumn. Some of them will be hikers but it is the beginning of spring, which makes it still the most "quiet" time of the year. March to the middle of May is, in most cases, the best time of year for the weather. Subsequently, there is an increase in the volatility of southwest monsoons. The best time to go is spring rather than fall, giving you the bonus of having the mountain more to yourself, alone.

Accommodation Facility on Mera Peak Climbing 17 Day Package

On this 17-day Mera Peak climbing adventure, you'll stay in a mix of accommodations, from basic teahouses to tented Camps. During the trekking portions, you'll stay overnight in basic teahouses, which consist of one or two beds, mattresses, pillows, etc. In addition, there will be shared washrooms and a central dining hall where you'll get to know your fellow trekkers over meals. Pack light for this portion, as teahouses have limited electricity to charge devices. Enjoy the camaraderie in these cozy tea houses before heading up the mountain.

In lower elevations on the Mera Peak Trek with Climb route, you can upgrade your accommodation from basic tea houses to more comfortable lodges with private rooms, washrooms, or luxury accommodations. In these upgraded accommodations, you can easily enjoy a short shower facility, charging facility, etc. You can treat yourself to one of their signature cocktails at the bar and swap stories from the trail, too. 

When you reach the Mera Peak Base Camp, your guides will provide quality tents. Your porters will ensure you have warm sleeping bags, insulated pads, and hot meals to fuel you for the challenging climb ahead. 

The 17-day Mera Peak Climbing Trip's mix of teahouses, lodges, and camping offers a well-rounded experience in the Himalayas. While not luxurious, the accommodations provide a glimpse into traditional life in the mountains.

Difficulty Level of Climbing Mera Peak 

Mera Peak Climbing is challenging yet achievable for most fit trekkers with a sense of adventure. The climb requires technical mountaineering skills and experience at high altitudes, but the ascent is non-technical. With the proper preparation and Sherpa guidance, climbers of various ability levels have reached the summit.

The trek to base camp consists of several days of strenuous hiking over rough terrain. You'll gain over 1,000m in elevation, so you must be fit enough to handle six to eight hours of daily activity on the Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu trip. The climb to the summit will take another two days, during which you'll gain another 1,500m while carrying heavy packs. Ensure you exercise regularly in the months leading up to the trip to build up your endurance.

While Mera Peak is non-technical, 17 Day Mera Peak Climbing adventure will take you over snow and ice for parts of the ascent, requiring knowledge of how to use an ice axe and crampons. Ropes are fixed in some sections, so you should know how to use jumar ascenders for climbing ropes properly. Your Sherpa guides will instruct you, but some familiarity will boost your confidence.

Meals Facility provided on the Mera Peak Climbing 17-Day Journey

On this Mera Peak adventure of 17 days, you'll experience a variety of meals to fuel your body as you ascend to new heights. Our experienced cooks prepare all meals fresh with local ingredients.

Breakfast typically includes porridge, eggs, toast, and hot tea or coffee to start your day. As you trek, pack lunches of sandwiches, snacks, and fruit will be provided to keep you going until dinner. After a long day of climbing on your Climbing Mera Peak 17 Day trip, sit down to a hearty Dal Bhat meal- lentil soup, rice, and curried meat or vegetables.

During the initial days of Mera Peak Trek with Climb through forests and small villages, meals are prepared at local tea houses along the route. As you reach the base camp, the crew will prepare all meals for the group in one of the tented camps. The cook staff is well-trained in preparing nutritious meals for high-altitude trekking and understands the importance of carbohydrates, protein, and hydration.

While camping, spacious dining tents provide shelter for enjoying your meals together. However, options become more limited at higher elevations on Mera Peak Climbing due to a need for fresh produce and supplies.

Your crew will ensure all dietary requirements and restrictions are respected. Please advise us in advance of any food allergies or preferences so we can accommodate your needs.

Insurance Requirements for Mera Peak Climbing 

Mera Peak is a challenging and technical climb, so adequate insurance is essential in case of emergencies. The 17-day Mera Peak climbing package does not include insurance, so you must purchase your own comprehensive travel insurance policy before embarking on this adventure. 

Look for a policy that explicitly covers high-altitude trekking and mountaineering, including emergency evacuation and medical care coverage. As Mera Peak reaches up to 21,000 feet, the risks of altitude sickness and other high-altitude medical issues are real. You'll want a policy for your 17 Day Mera Peak Climbing Trip that covers the full cost of air evacuation from such a remote mountain location. It should also cover regular medical care, hospitalisation, and medicine in the event of illness or injury at high altitude.

When you book your Mera Peak Trek with Climb 17 Days, you must provide proof of your travel insurance to the trekking company. They want to ensure all climbers have adequate coverage in case of emergency for everyone's safety. 

How to Prepare for Mera Peak Trek with Climb 17 Days?

With the right preparation and training, you'll be ready to take on the challenge of summiting Mera Peak. This adventure of a lifetime will reward you with breathtaking views and a profound sense of personal accomplishment. The key is preparing your mind and body so you can fully experience all this trek has to offer.

  • Climbing Mera Peak in Autumn or Spring is a strenuous trek that requires physical health. Start training at least 2-3 months before your trip to build your endurance. Go on regular hikes, walk around with a heavy backpack, and do strength training like squats and lunges. Work on your flexibility and balance, too. The fitter you are, the more you'll enjoy this challenging adventure.
  • You'll need quality gear for extreme conditions like subzero temperatures, high winds, and icy terrain on your Climb to Mera Peak Journey. Pack insulated and waterproof jackets, pants, gloves, hats, and hiking boots. Don't forget thermal undergarments, thick socks, and a sleeping bag rated for -20°C. Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, and a reusable water bottle. Pack essential camping gear like a tent, sleeping pad, stove, fuel, utensils, and a flashlight. You'll also need alpine climbing equipment like an ice ax, crampons, harnesses, carabiners, and trekking poles.
  • You'll need certain permits and documents for the Mera Peak Climbing From Kathmandu journey. Obtain a Mera Peak and Barun Valley trekking permit through a registered trekking agency in Kathmandu. You'll also need to pay national park fees when entering Makalu Barun National Park. Make copies of important documents like your passport and insurance policy if the originals get lost or damaged. Inform your insurance provider about your trek dates and activities.
  • Mera Peak Trek with Climb requires technical mountaineering skills. Take an ice climbing and glacier travel course to learn how to properly use equipment like crampons, ice axes, harnesses, and carabiners. Study the effects of high altitude and learn how to prevent and treat altitude sickness. Know how to navigate tricky terrain, set up camp, and cook meals with limited resources. Your guide on your 17 Days Mera Peak Climbing Trip will provide additional training, but having a solid foundation will boost your confidence.

    A Mountaineering Milestone Achieved

    My climbing experience in Mera Peak with Adventure Altitude Treks was very memorable! These rugged 17 days have been a challenge, but the joy of touching the top of the mountain has no comparison. I could not have asked for a better consultant than Rohit and his team. They were great. Their knowledge and the attention they paid made me feel secure, and My soul did not leave the trek. The Mera Peak Climbing 17 Day Detailed Itinerary was scheduled correctly, and I had enough time to acclimatise. The thresholds were comfortable for me, and the teahouses served not only clean and nice but also tasty local food. To be honest, climbing the Mera Peak journey was a real challenge, but it was nothing compared to the ecstasy I felt for achieving a 6,476-metre high point.
