If you would like to experience a real challenge along with your Himalayan adventures, then join us for peak climbing in Nepal, the worlds’ greatest destination for exploring the mountains. The Himalaya offers the best option for getting naturally high and achieving your dreams while strengthening your mountain skill set and climbing resume.
Mera Peak is situated in astonishing territory, south of Mt. Everest and on the border of the magnificent Makalu-Barun National Park. Mera Peak is 6,476m/ 21,190 ft and one of the highest of all the trekking peaks in Nepal. It will be a strenuous climb to that altitude, which is higher than most of the peaks beyond the Himalayan Range. From the summit you will have the most thrilling panorama possible of the breathtakingly close, giant peaks of Nepal and Tibet and the land below them. Although Mera requires no previous experience in mountaineering, it will be a physical challenge and is suitable for people feeling acclimatized and fit.
We reach the Everest Region with a short flight from Kathmandu to the Sherpa town of Lukla. From this airport village in the mountains, we begin hiking with a climb over high passes to the exhilarating Hinku Valley. The Himalayan landscape of this unique valley is rarely visited by tourists and will be an extraordinary experience. Surrounded by unimaginable natural beauty, we take it easy to allow adequate adjustment to the increasing elevation.
We establish a lower camp at about 5300 m/17670 ft, and next move on to the higher camp at the Mera Glacier with thrilling views! We push for the summit when the time is right, and the bliss of our triumph will be rewarding with a tremendous panorama that will stay with you over a lifetime.
The itinerary is designed with careful attention by our professional climbers to safe guard gradual rate of ascent with proper acclimatization.
The best seasons to climb Mera Peak are March to May and September to early December. We have no fixed departure dates, just let us know your preferred schedule and we can accommodate accordingly.
Mera Peak is a camping journey, and we will have porters to carry supplies, a dining tent, sleeping tent and more for your comfort.

Your Sherpa Crew
At Himalaya Hikes, our Sherpa crews are critical to the success of your treks & climbs that you do with us. We us professionally trained Sherpa guides & sirdars who are just not hikers & climbers on the mountains but have been trained to perform this task with a lot of common sense & guile. We ensure that they are confident & experienced in leading ventures into some of the most isolated parts of Nepal. Most of our guides were born in these parts & have relatives living on other parts of the regions where they were born in.
We know that locally born staffs are a vital cog in that wheel of sometimes dangerous adventure where anything can happen.
Trekkers benefit a lot from local guides who have the local knowledge that can give you deep insights into the local culture where you understand the lifestyles of communities of the areas you hike through. Your travel is also directly supporting local communities, creating employment & giving back to the local folks as you travel through their districts & regions.
All of our local crew, guides, sirdars & porters all have critical first aid training & even possess the abilities to save your life in the most serious of conditions. At Himalaya Hikes, we always make sure that our mountain crews are highly motivated & never compromise on the facilities they deserve.
