Join our fantastic Mera Peak climbing starting from Khare. We have group join available for Spring and Autumn 2019 and 2020

Mera Peaks lies in the Sagarmatha (Everest) region of Nepal, classified as a trekking peak including three main summits: Mera North, 6,476 meters1,247 ft); Mera Central, 6,461 meters (21,198 ft); and Mera South, 6,065 meters (19,898 ft), as well as a smaller "trekking summit", visible as a distinct summit from the south but not marked on most maps of the region.The Peak was first climbed by Jimmy Roberts in May 20, 1953 by Col.  Mera North was first climbed by the French mountaineers G. Baus, Marcel Jolly and L. Honills in 1975. The region was first travelled by British expeditions in the early 50s before and after the ascent of Everest. Jimmy Roberts (1916-1997) was probably the person who can take most of the credit for establishing the trekking industry in Nepal in the early 1960s. He was posthumously awarded the "Sagarmatha (Everest) National Award" by the government in May 2005.

The view from the top of the peak is one of the best in the Himalaya with five eight thousanders  Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga, as well as other Himalayan peaks connected below. The usual route from the north involves high altitude glacier walking. The ease of reaching this elevation may be its biggest hazard but fine weather and snow conditions are, of course, essential for safety and success. The west and south faces of the peak offer more difficult technical routes. For experienced climbers it is a technically straightforward ascent, the main hurdle being proper acclimatization to the high altitude. These reasons make Mera Peak a very popular destination, we, Guide in Himalaya offer guided package trip to the Mera peak with mountaineering experience in most competitive price. All climbers are recommended to participate in fitness preparation and altitude training before attempting to climb. In 1986 Mal Duff and Ian Tattersall made the first ascent of the south west pillar.

    Mera Peak Climbing Spring 2018


    I am just back from climbing Mera Peak, what a great trip with our guide Pema Sherpa and the other outstanding helper behind. Accommodation was mainly in tents with some nights in tea houses and we have to say that it was a wonderful experience. The trip from beginning to end was smooth and I have come away with many great pictures of five of the worlds 8000m peaks and memories that will last for a very long time. Guide in Himalaya (Wilderness Excursion – their corporate sister company) handled everything from meeting everyone at Kathmandu Airport, transfers to and from the hotel in Thamel, Lukla flights and generally making sure the whole trip was well prepared and safe, this provided the chance for everyone to make the expedition. Thank you and hope to see you again for the next venture.
