Also, if you are aspiring to attempt higher altitudes or other technical peaks in the future, Mera Peak can be an excellent stepping stone.
What to Expect from Mera Peak Climbing?
Since Mera Peak is a trekking peak, it is perfect for those who don’t have any technical skills in climbing mountain peaks. Located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, Mera Peak holds a significant viewpoint for some of the mountain peaks, picturesque villages, and beautiful alpine forests.
Stunning and Breathtaking Scenery
The Mera Peak Climbing takes you on a trail of beautiful mountain peaks, picturesque valleys, alpine forests, and diverse flora and fauna. Mera Peak is situated in the Khumbu Region of Nepal, offering breathtaking views of the world’s highest peaks, including Mt. Everest (8848.86m), Lhotse (8188), Makalu, Cho Oyu, and other major peaks.
What is more exciting about this peak climbing is that you can explore the different picturesque valleys, glaciers, and alpine forests which creates a visual delight during the trek route.
During the trekking part of the Mera Peak Climbing, you will come across several traditional Sherpa communities. Whether it is Namche Bazaar or Tengboche, there are several Sherpa villages immense with local culture.
You can interact with the local Sherpas and get to know more about their way of life. To reach Sherpa villages, you have to trek through the trail. It can be tiring and exaggerated but the warm behavior and hospitality of the Sherpa people will make the visit worthy.
In addition, you can engage in their local practices and spend some time communicating with them to learn more about traditional Sherpa cultures.
Although the Mera Peak Climbing is a considered trekking peak, it needs a good level of fitness and stamina to embark on the journey. Before reaching the summit of Mera Peak, you have to trek for 4-6 hours each day to reach different stop points.
It is better to be involved in different exercises and health fitness before going for the Mera Peak Climbing.
Camping in the Everest Region
Other than having accommodations in the tea houses during the trekking route, it is more likely to stay in the camping area at a higher altitude. Camping in the Himalayan region is more fascinating because of the unique experience.
During your camping, you can enjoy the awe-inspiring view of clear skies with twinkling stars. It can be also challenging due to colder nights in the camping zone.
Achievement and Personal Growth
After completing the Mera Peak Climbing, you can sense a different feeling of accomplishment and personal growth. Moreover, beginners who enjoyed their peak climbing experience can feel themselves surge with boosted confidence to accomplish more peak climbing.
Reaching the top of the mountain peak after going through challenging activities is one of the best achievements one can have. You will also be able to get some self-belief after watching beautiful scenery from the top of the Mera Peak.

Variation in Climbing Routes
Making it ideal for both beginner climbers and experienced climbers, there are different climbing routes for Mera Peak Climbing. The route is aligned with your preferences, skills, and experience.
The standard popular route to Mera Peak is Mera La Pass, which is ideal for beginners and the other route is Amphu Lapcha fit for more experienced climbers.
Mera Peak has an elevation of 6,476 meters which is a higher altitude to trek and climb. Since it is considered as the trekking peak, it can be accomplished without any technical skills so even beginners can conquer a mountain peak of a higher altitude.
Since it is at a higher altitude, there is more possibility of facing mountain sickness which includes headache, fatigue, and breathlessness. Because of it, it is necessary to have a proper acclimatization and slow accent ensuring the safety of everyone trekking alongside.
Connection with Nature
Mera Peak Climbing takes you through the routes of several lush forests where you can find different types of flowers, flora, and animals. Exploring nature will make you feel connected with it.
Away from the city and busy life, you will have valuable time in the beauty of the nature of the Khumbu region. You will feel refreshed while walking on the trail between natural habitats.

After having the last preparation, you will head to your hotel room to prepare for the next big day by your side and take some rest to be mentally prepared.
After meeting and greeting the representatives, and equipping the right gear, we will have a short scenic flight to Lukla. The flight usually takes 45-50 minutes during which you can enjoy the aerial view of the beautiful landscapes of Nepal.
Lukla has one of the most dangerous airports – The Tenzing-Hillary Airport which is the starting point for the trek towards Mount Everest Base Camp.
Since we reached Lukla, it will be our starting to the higher altitude, so this day we will have our acclimatization in Lukla. Meantime, you will get to explore the local areas of Lukla and communicate with the indigenous community.
After spending a day in Lukla exploring the nearby areas and getting more familiar with altitudes, we will have our accommodation in the Tea Houses.
For dinner, we will have locally prepared Daal (Lentils) and Bhaat (Rice) with some green vegetables grown in the fields of Nepal.
Before peak climbing, we have to go through several trekking routes to reach Mera Peak. The first will be with a trek to Chutanga from Lukla which generally takes 4-5 hours. With a delicious breakfast at around 7-8 AM, we will start our trekking to Chhutanga.
Trek to Chhutanga takes you to the uphills which have beautiful forests of pine and rhododendron. On the trail, you will pass through several Sherpa villages scattered within a distance. After trekking for a few hours, we will have our lunch at around 12:30 to 1:30 PM to refill our energy for continuing the journey.
Crossing several suspension bridges and waterfalls along the way, we will gain a certain altitude where you can notice the change in vegetation and landscapes.
After reaching Chhutanga, we will have an overnight stay at the teahouse. Chhutanga is a small settlement with few tea houses that serve basic facilities for trekkers. Dinner is included, which we will have at around 7:30-8:00 pm considering the situation and time for preparation.
After having breakfast at Chhutanga early in the morning, we will prepare ourselves for the Trek to Tuli Kharka. The trek takes around 6 hours which can be tiring so during the trail we will have proper lunch and rest enough to keep continuing the trek.
The trek to Tuli Kharka includes crossing the Zatrawa La Pass (4610m/15124ft) which can be exhausting but exciting. You can enjoy the beautiful views of the Himalayan ranges and sceneries.
After reaching the top of Zatrawa Pass, you will get an opportunity to enjoy the picturesque views of Kongdi Ri, Karyolang Peak, Number Himal, Lumding Himal, and many more.
With the views of landscapes and Yaks grazing, we will descend to Tuli Kharka. Getting the views of Yaks grazing over the beautiful terrain is truly iconic and unreal. After reaching Tuli Kharka we will have an overnight stay at one of serval basic tea houses.
After having breakfast at Tuli Kharka, we will head to Kothe which takes around five hours of trek. On the trail, you will get to see beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and landscapes.
We will stop by different beautiful locations to take some photographs and videos to keep them as a memory.
The trail takes you to the Hinku Valley after ascending through lush rhododendrons and pine forests. Getting the views of different Sherpa civilizations is common throughout the trek where we can take a rest and enjoy lunch.
Crossing small streams and wooden bridges on the way, we will enter the serene atmosphere and natural beauty of Hinku Valley. Kothe is a picturesque village located alongside the Hinku River. It offers views of majestic landscapes and gets you closer to the Himalayan giants.
Then, we will have an overnight stay at a teahouse in Kothe which is surrounded by several towering peaks.
After a restful night in Kitge, we will start our trek to Thangnak in the morning after having breakfast in the teahouse we stay. In an approx. 4 hours of trek, we will ascend gradually along the west bank of the Hinku River while passing through lush forests and charming villages.
Throughout the trek, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the south face of Mera Peak. Walking on the Mera Peak’s shadow, we will reach Gondishung where we will take a break to enjoy the best lunch available.
After lunch at Gondishung, we will have a few walks where you will get to see Lungsumgba Gompa which is 2 century old gompa of Nepal. As we gain altitude, the vegetation will start to thin out, and the landscapes will become more alpine.
We will finally reach Thangnak which is a small settlement surrounded by high peaks and is a popular stopover for climbers and trekkers on the way to Mera Base Camp. We will then have an overnight stay at a teahouse in Thangnak.
After days of trekking on the trails of Mera Peak Climbing, we have gained certain high altitudes which can be unfamiliar to several trekkers, and climbers. Because of this, we will have acclimatization at Thangnak to adjust to the thin air.
Our day won’t just end with resting or acclimatization, but we will have a visit to Sabal Tsho Lake. After enjoying the views around, we will have an acclimatization hike to the Cairn (5271m/17293ft). It lies on the flank of Kusum Kangguru (6367m/20889m) which offers a serene mountain environment.
We will then return to Thangnak for an overnight stay and enjoy delicious Nepali cuisine for dinner.
After acclimatization at Thangnak, we will have our bodies fit even for thin air which is important for Mera Peak Climbing. Early in the morning at around 7-8 AM, we will continue our journey to Khare (5,045 meters) which takes around 3.5 hours to 4 hours.
As we continue trekking on the trail, you will experience the alpine terrain which indicates the approach of the base camp area. Today, the trek can be difficult as we have to pass through the steep hills trails. The moraines way will be from Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka which will bring you in front of the Charpate Himal.
After reaching Khare, the difficult 3-4 hours of uphill trek will finally come to an end and you will get to see the view of Mera Peak as much as you want. We will then have accommodation at the tea house of Khare. We will spend the night planning for the next day of trekking to base camp.
Day 09: Trek and climb from Khare to High Camp (5,780m/18,963ft)
This day is crucial because we will be getting closer to the summit day. After spending a night at Khare, we will begin our ascent to the Mera Peak High Camp. The 6-7 hours of the trek take you through the rocky path and higher altitudes which make it crucial for slow and steady acclimatization.
On climbing higher, we will experience more rugged and barren landscapes where you have opportunities to have views of breathtaking surrounding peaks. Mera High Base Camp is the last campsite before attempting the summit of Mera Peak.
We will then have a campsite stay at Mera High Camp with proper gear and sleeping bags to prevent us from the colder nights of the High camp. MHC provides a strategic location for climbers to prepare for the final push.
While having camping accommodation, we will prepare ourselves for the next big day by checking the gear and equipment properly. Also, we will be enjoying some energy-providing snacks, and dinners so that we can keep ourselves fit during the Mera Peak Summit.
Day 10 will be our rest day at the camp where we will prepare ourselves for the next big day. On this day we will keep our body fit with light exercises and some yoga. Also, we will have proper breakfast, lunch, and dinner as scheduled to keep our body in a balanced diet.
Coming on day 11 of our Mera Peak Climbing journey, we will have the most important day today as we plan to achieve the summit of Mera Peak. After properly checking the gear and equipment necessary for climbing, we will start early in the morning around 2 AM. The reason for having it so early is to complete the climb by noon. The Mera Peak Summit receives strong winds after noon which can be challenging for climbers.
After having breakfast and packing some energy bars and dry fruits, we will start climbing by following the footsteps of the experienced climb guide. Because Mera Peak is considered a trekking peak, it won’t be difficult if the weather stays favorable.
Even without technical skills, you can reach the top by following the guide’s footsteps. Every team member will be close to each other to avoid any problems during the climb.
Once we reach the top, you will be speechless by the views of several mountain peaks like Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu, and other several peaks with heights of more than 8 thousand.
Peak Climbing is one of the biggest achievements one can have in their life and with the successful Mera Peak climb with Blue Lake Adventure, you will have a proud moment of success. We will celebrate at the top of the Mera Peak by taking pictures and videos to keep it as a part of our memories. We will have a good time together at the summit before returning back to Khare for an overnight stay.
After successfully climbing the summit of Mera Peak, it’s time to return where we started. Thinking about the joyous moment, we will trace our route to Kothe from Khare.
Descending through the lush rhododendron and pine forests we will encounter several traditional Sherpa villages. On the way, we will also cross Thangnak, the place where we stayed earlier days. But since the trek to Kothe is easily accessible and takes around 3-4 hours, we will have our way to Kothe for an overnight.
While trekking through the trails, you will get to see several beautiful views of surrounding mountains and landscapes. Walking through such trails is one of the best experiences you will have in the Everest Region of Nepal.
After descending through the beautiful landscapes of Hinku Valley, we will finally reach Kothe which is one of the charming settlements.
Alongside the Hinku River, Kothe offers a peaceful atmosphere and a chance to rest after a challenging climb. We will then have an overnight stay at the teahouses enjoying our delicious meal.
Without any rush, after having a fine breakfast at Kothe, we leave for Tuli Kharka.
The trek to Tuli Kharka from Kothe takes around 6 hours which is easy if there weren’t uphills and downhills. Today will not be the same as yesterday since we have to trek through uphills and downhills which are tiring and exhausting.
The trek will retrace the steps through the Hinku Valley, passing through picturesque villages and beautiful landscapes.
This day is going to be the last day among the mountains, especially Mera Peak so today we will have delicious meals with our staff to celebrate the achievement.
We will manage a campfire where everyone will gather up and celebrate the success of achieving the summit of the Mera Peak. We will share our happy moments by having a conversation about the feelings we had on the top of the mountains.
With the final moments in the mountains and the beauty of the Hinku Valley, we will have our last day a day of celebration.
After having precious moments in the Hinku Valley among several mountains, we will head back to Lukla from where our trek started.
Today is the last day of trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal. Since it takes around 7-8 hours of trekking, you won’t miss out on the precious Himalayas of Nepal.
Our experienced guide will thoroughly explain every peak and scenery you will observe. The trail leads through dense forests, beautiful landscapes, and charming villages as we make our way toward Zatrwa La Pass.
We will then ascend to Zatrwa La Pass (4,620m/15,175m), which offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
As this day is the last day of trekking, we will have our final moments by stopping by different beautiful sceneries to enjoy the beauty.
After trekking on the downhill trail through terraced farmlands and rhododendron forests, we will finally reach Lukla which is a gateway to Everest Region.
On reaching Lukla, we will mark the trek as an end. From onwards there will be no necessity of trekking through rugged landscapes. The next day, it is scheduled for a flight so we will have our best moments in Lukla by exploring nearby and communicating with the natives.
We will then have an overnight stay at Lukla in one of the finest Teahouse where we will have delicious local meals.
Early in the morning, after having a light breakfast in Lukla we will take a short scenic flight to Kathmandu which usually takes around 45 minutes.
During the flight time, we will talk about the best experience we had during the trek. We will share our memories and feelings with each other.
With an aerial view of lush landscapes and mountains, we will land in Kathmandu. We will then transfer you to the hotel where you can spend your leisure time with your trek mates and enjoy shopping for souvenirs around.
After long days of trekking and finally completing the climbing to the summit of Mera Peak, we will have this day as a celebration day of our journey.
During the daytime, you can explore the cities of Kathmandu Valley. You can try some local Newari cuisine on your own or do some shopping around.
We will have a farewell dinner at one of the traditional Nepali restaurants where we will have traditional Nepali cuisine with cultural dance and music. Also, we will cut the cake with the celebration of successfully climbing Mera Peak.

Basic Information about Mera Peak Climbing
Before setting foot on the journey to Mera Peak, you need to know more about Mera Peak as a climbing peak, the geography around it, the best time for peak climbing in Nepal, trekking and climbing difficulties, and many more.
About Mera Peak and its Geography
Mera Peak being a popular peak climbing destination in Nepal, catches the attraction of different mountain climbing enthusiasts. With its beauty and considerably less difficulty for climbing, many of the normal trekkers are also excited about Mera peak climbing.
With a height of 6,476 meters (21,247 ft), Mera Peak stands tall as a trekking peak in the Hinku Valley Region of Nepal. Because it is considered a trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), it is less demanding than expedition peaks.
Talking about its geography, the journey to Mera Peak will take you through several picturesque landscapes, traditional villages, dense forests, and glacial moraines. Also, the Hinku Valley is a less frequented but incredibly beautiful area, offering a pristine and untouched trekking experience compared to more crowded tails in the Everest Region.
Due to its remote location, the trek to Mera Peak is also an opportunity to experience the local culture and lifestyle of the Sherpa People, who are renowned for their mountaineering expertise and warm hospitality.
How difficult is Mera Peak Climbing?
Climbing to the mountain peak in extreme weather conditions and cold temperatures can be thrilling to hear. We can’t say the Mera Peak Climbing is easier but compared to other mountain peaks of Nepal, Mera Peak is considerably less difficult and made for both beginners and experts in climbing.
Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), the government which monitors mountaineering in Nepal has marked Mera Peak as a trekking peak. So, it is as difficult as trekking in Nepal.
For beginners, Mera Peak Climbing is more difficult considering the unusual trails, cold temperatures, and no technical skills in climbing. Whereas those who have been to peak climbing can find it easier because of the climbing skills and familiarity with the high altitude.
Though Mera Peak is considered a trekking peak and doesn’t require advanced mountaineering skills, you might get into some sections that can be technically demanding. Climbers may encounter crevasses, ice slopes, and steep terrain that require the use of crampons, ice axes, and rope works.
In addition to peak climbing, the longer days of trekking can be challenging too. If you have no experience of trekking in the Everest Region then trekking for days will be exhausting to you. So, before embarking the peak climbing in Nepal, we recommend you go trekking in the mountain region of Nepal. Check awesome trekking destinations of Nepal best fit for beginners too.
Since we are in the mountain region of Nepal, we can predict the weather’s instability. The weather can be challenging because Mountains suffer a sudden change in weather frequently.
Best Time for Mera Peak Climbing
Peak Climbing in Nepal is challenging and needs to be taken in suitable time to overcome the difficulties that might be because of off-seasons. To be more precise, different seasons have different temperatures and weather conditions which are equally important to consider in trekking and peak climbing.
To get the best experience of trekking and peak climbing in Nepal, Autumn and Spring season are the best seasons. In these seasons, you can experience the best weather conditions and suitable temperatures ideal for trekking and peak climbing.
Bad weather and cold temperature creates difficulties and can lead to several accidents if we try to go for peak climbing even under those conditions.
Autumn Season (September, October & November), comes in between summer and winter. Away from the hotter days, more precipitation for rainfall, and dry winter with extremely cold temperatures in the mountains, Autumn stands as the best time for trekking or mountain peak climbing.
What is better in Autumn, that no other seasons hold? The Autumn season offers you the best experience of trekking in Nepal with the favorable day temperature, cooler nights, clear skies, and stable weather conditions. Isn’t it the best fit for trekking and climbing in these situations?
You can have your best time trekking and peak climbing in Nepal with clear views of mountain ranges, picturesque landscapes, and moderate temperatures to hike through trails.
In addition, Spring Seasons (March, April & May) are also the best seasons for trekking and peak climbing in Nepal. Similar to the Autumn season, Spring also offers vibrant temperatures ideal for hiking, clear skies, and stable weather. But it doesn’t just end with that, during this season, flowers bloom all over the forests, and most trees change the color of their leaves which adds beauty during the trek.
Spring Season falls before summer and after winter, making it the best time for trekking and peak climbing in Nepal.
Since the seasons are mostly favorable for trekking and peak climbing, it’s not unseen by different climbers. Because of this, during the peak seasons, there might be difficulties in the route, booking the package and even getting domestic flights. To avoid booking problems and other difficulties in the peak seasons, you can pre-book the Mera Peak Climbing with Blue Lake Adventure.
Permits and Regulations
Getting permits is important and mandatory for getting entry to several restricted areas of Nepal. Though the permit and entry fees are all managed by Blue Lake Adventure after booking the package, here is the general information about permits:
Mera Peak Climbing Permit

Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS)

This permit is equally important because Mera Peak is located in the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality of the Solukhumbhu district. It is required to get entry into the village in order to start trekking to Mera Peak.

The Mera Peak Climbing includes days of trekking on rugged terrains, landscapes, and snowy lands. For it, you need to have a better fitness level to trek for 4-5 hours a day on average.
For better fitness, we recommend you have regular exercises, cycling, and yoga to keep you physically and mentally fit. It is important to build strength in leg muscles so that you can trek for hours without getting into any difficulties.

For Mera Peak Climbing, Travel Insurance is mandatory for safety purposes. Having travel insurance provides financial protection and coverage for various unforeseen situations that may occur during the trip.
It is better to look at the policies of different travel agencies before booking a travel package. We recommend getting travel insurance with emergency medical evacuation. Climbing on the mountain peaks is a risk factor, so for Mera Peak, it is ideal to get travel insurance that offers emergency medication including helicopter rescue.
Also, not every travel agency offers trip cancellation, so it is important to ask the agencies if they can offer travel cancellations in case of any unforeseen circumstances. Mostly travel insurance covers all the basic needs like loss of baggage or personal belongings, travel delays, and emergency assistance.
In addition, if you have any pre-existing medical conditions then it is important to declare while purchasing the travel insurance. In order to have better travel insurance for the Mera Peak Climb, go through the policy documents of the travel agencies and check whether they cover your requirements or not.
