Mera Peak Climbing

19 Days

Mera Peak climbing takes you to the summit of 6,461m/21,190ft, which is the highest trekking peak in the Himalaya. Mera Peak climbing is popular for majestic views of surrounding mountains including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Amadablam, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Makalu, and Barun Tse, among others. Mera Peak climbing is also popular for building up training before attempting other major expeditions like Everest, Amadablam, and Manaslu, etc.

For the past 15 years, Great Vision Trek has been organizing Mera Peak climbing in each spring and autumn season. Our Mera Peak climbing itinerary is carefully designed with different route options. The usual route to reach Mera Peak is directly via the Zatra La Pass, but we follow the route that passes via Paiya, Pangom, Nagsow, and Kothe. Our route allows enough time to acclimatize properly. On the return journey, we can use the Zatra La Pass (3 days). Local hotels and tea houses provide acclimatization and good meals. Khare is the nearest village to Mera Peak, and from Khare, it takes only 2-3 hours to reach Base Camp.

Mera Peak is an excellent option for anyone with moderate mountaineering experience and even for inexperienced climbers. Basic technical knowledge is good enough for successfully attempting the summit. Our professional Sherpa guides and instructors also provide training at Base Camp and Khare. This expedition can be the first step for those who are looking to attempt Everest in the future.
