Mera Peak is a popular climbing destination in the Khumbu region of Nepal. It is another snowclad magnificent Himalaya located in the Mahalangur section, east of the Everest region. It falls on the subsection of Barun and lies North of Lukla across the hill. This trek/expedition also starts from Lukla, which is a gateway to most of the treks and expeditions in the Solukhumbu region. The peak stands at an elevation of 6,476 meters (21,247 feet) and has a consideration of a trekking peak.  And does not require technical climbing skills. However, it still poses challenges and is attemptable only by experienced trekkers and climbers.

The peak consists of three main crests, Mera North which is 6,476 meters, Mera Central is 6,461 meters (21, 198 ft), Mera South 6,065 meters (19,898 ft). British explorers started early mountaineering in Nepal and so was this summit. The first exploration was done by a British expedition after conquering the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest. The expedition team consisted of Sir Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Eric Shipton, and Gorge Lowe. The magnificent peak Mera Central was conquered by Col. Jimmy Robert and Sen Tenzing on May 20, 1953. They also set up a pillar and established a trekking industry in Nepal.

Mera Peak’s standard route is from the north part which consists of high-altitude glacier walking. Because the west and south peaks are more difficult and technical. Upon reaching the top of Mera Peak of Solukhumbu region, the peak offers 360 bird-eye views of 5 world’s highest mountains which are above 8000 meters. This mountain is, in fact, a technical climbing peak. The main hindrance can be adjusting to the altitude otherwise it is a technically straightforward ascent for experienced climbers.

And with a great team and experienced mountain guide, every crest in Nepal is conquerable. And that is what Trekker Paradise offers. Are you ready to embark on the expedition?

Your Map

Train Yourself

Best physical condition is required to trek in Nepal’s high altitude. Without some pre-trek training or a good level of basic fitness, it can be hard. We suggest running, walking, hiking on the hill, climbing stairs rather than elevators to prepare for the trek. Include swimming, rowing, biking in your daily base training.

Basic further experience and strength required for Climbing

  • One should be able to hike for 6-7 hours a day.
  • One should be able to carry 8 kg themselves on a backpack for preparation.
  • We suggest you run about 4/5 miles in the home for the preparation with some load on your back for 2 to 3 months to make your climbing much easier. Or use treadmill for everyday running and walking.
  • If you have an uphill location/mountain then once a week you should go hiking with a loaded bag pack on your back. If you do not have mountains and high hills then use stairs to go up/down than the elevator.
  • Regular swimming, biking, rowing is also a good way to maintain your physical strength.
