Mera Peak Climbing



Mera peak is officially the highest of Nepal’s permitted trekking peaks, rises to the south of Everest. Mera stands at 6,476m. The first ascent of Mera was made by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953 by the now standard route from the Mera la. By this standard route from the Mera la, the ascent is technically straightforward, however after a heavy fall of snow or when the maze of the crevasses are open, the way can be long and demanding.

After summiting Mera peak, you will continue your trek and walk down to Kongmadingma and hike through the Hongu valley. At the pass, your guide and climbing Sherpas will set up fixed ropes and descend down towards the Imja valley. After the Amphulaptsa pass, you will continue your trek towards Lukla. The Extension of this trek will give you the opportunity to explore the Hongu valley which lies in a basin with surrounding peaks all around. The base camp to Baruntse is also here. The views are quite spectacular from the top of the pass with some great views of Makalu, Amadablam, Lhotse, Nuptse and Baruntse.

Private trek or group option

We can organise this trek on a private basis for groups of friends, families, clubs, charities or any other group. Depending on your previous trekking experience, you may want a Climb High leader or have no ‘leader’ but sill use the help of one of our guides and/or porters. Costs for this option are available on demand but are often not a huge amount greater than joining one of our ‘fixed departures’. Please contact us with your referred dates and itinerary and we’ll give you a quote.
