Mera Peak expedition is indeed an ideal pick to prove yourself of your determination and life purpose. The thrill of Peak climbing in Nepal doesn’t have anything in common as to regular trekking. It is indeed something out of the ordinary, something more special. Unlike Island Peak Climbing, Mera Peak Climbing offers a beautiful blend of both trekking and climbing which is interestingly startling. Among all the popular trekking peaks in Nepal, Mera Peak (6,476 m/21,247 ft) happens to be one of the highest with the most dramatic setting. This 22 days Mera Peak Climbing itinerary takes you to the most stunning valleys unlike Everest Base Camp which is still very untouched. Besides stunning views, the summit of Mera delivers a gorgeous view of the 5 world’s Highest Mountain (Everest, Makalu, Kanchanjunga, Lhotse and Cho Oyu) and its neighboring mountains.
Mera Peak Tea House Trekking:
Until few years ago all Mera Peak trekking was organized as Camping Trips. Over the years there has been a radical transformation in regards to facilitating the trekkers and climbers. This in course of time gave birth to now tea house trekking. Since Tea house trekking started very recently in the region the facility is pretty BASIC. However, this basic tea houses have efficiently accommodated the travelers with absolutely no criticism whatsoever. Though now Mera Peak is a Tea House Trekking yet we can’t get away from the fun of CAMPING. Once we leave Khare we have the privilege of camping at Mera-La and High-camp with twin sharing tents, great food prepared by our local staff and camping fun. Approximately 2 nights camping.
At Mera base camp the cook is responsible for all the meals. They are highly trained and are masters at preparing selections of food under less than ideal condition.
Mera peak Difficulty:
Mera peak Climbing in Nepal surpasses all the other trekking peaks when it comes to technicality, climbing experience, excitement and significantly its serenity away from the commercial crowd. Nepal Pyramids provides an aptly designed itinerary so as to make the trip more exciting rather than physically draining. Though Mera Peak trekking is physically challenging yet we give our best to make it an outstanding expedition that is less exhausting. However, despite it being physically demanding expedition, technical mountaineering skills are not required. Furthermore, Nepal Pyramids climbing Sherpa will deliver you with the pre-climbing training before the attack camp or High camp. This training includes the climbing techniques, safety measures, rescue and the use of climbing equipment. This training grooms you well enough with significant things to do and know before ascending Mera peak. Furthermore, this will be an awesome part of learning for a lifetime.
Best time to climb Mera Peak:
We organize Mera Peak Climbing during both the season of Spring (March – May) and Autumn (September – Early December). These are the two best time to climb Mera Peak. However, Mera is not considered as technical as most trekking peaks in Nepal. However, sometimes with the weather disorder leading to WHITEOUT or HEAVY SNOWFALL may lead to very challenging situations. Climbers can very easily get lost into the myriad of dimensions where otherwise GPS comes really handy. Nonetheless, Nepal Pyramids team is well equipped with devices for emergency contact.
From Lukla we skip the commercial trekking route and take the less trodden trail towards South. Gradually our journey takes us into the most sensational setting of the stunning Hinku Valley. Unlike the regular Mera Peak Trekking Trail we have designed our itinerary that would provide excitement and breathtaking views. Besides, the itinerary cruises through the hidden sacred valleys of Panch Pokhari (5 Holy Lakes). In the month of August during full moon (Janai Purnima) a sacred festival is organized where hundreds of pilgrimage show up to worship the lakes. Walking pass this religious lakes is very spiritual and the view is overwhelming. Moreover, it takes you to the very cultural settlements

Flight Delay/Cancellation in Kathmandu and Lukla:
The unpredictability of Flights flying to and from Lukla airport, the gateway to Mount Everest and the world’s most electrifying airport is pretty evident from its history of delays and cancellation. Diverse factors leads to the situation of cancellation including the weather, technical issues, poor visibility etc. In such conditions, Nepal Pyramids will charter a helicopter to make certain that you don’t miss your trip or your international flight. But again under these circumstances the possibility of flying helicopter depends on the Nepal Civil Aviation flying rules.
Travelers are to pay the cost of the chartered helicopter which is payable through cash, traveler’s cheques, or credit cards (Visa and Master Cards only). Travelers will be provided with receipt upon payment so that they may claim the amount from their travel insurance. The cost per person depends on the number of people taking this facility.
Why extra night in Kathmandu???
After the trip, travelers have one additional leisure day in Kathmandu, the living heritage city, which in reality is a contingency day in case of Lukla – Kathmandu flight cancellation under certain circumstances. This certainly gives anyone more of a chance to explore Kathmandu, the capital, ‘The Shining Pearl of Asia’ with its beautiful temples, monuments and time honored legends and history. The city undeniably has so much to offer anyone with thrilling tour experience. Nepal Pyramids will always be there to assist you with your city exploration.
