Follow NNMGA certified mountain guide Jyamchang on this 16-day adventure and reach the summit of the Mera Peak in Nepal!
Mera Peak is a mountain in the Manalangur section, Barun sub-section of the Himalaya and administratively in Nepal Sagarmatha Zone of Solukhumbu District. It is located at the east of the main Khumbu trekking trail of the Everest Region. Mera Peak is 6476 meters high.
It is classified as a Nepal’s trekking Peak it contains three main summits:
– Mera North, 6,476 metres (21,247 ft);
– Mera Central, 6,461 metres (21,198 ft);
– Mera South, 6,065 metres (19,898 ft).
The view from the summit is one of the finest in the Himalaya with five 8,000m peaks visible: Mt.Everest, Mt.Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu & Mt. Kanchanganga, Mt.Chamlang Mt. Baruntse as well as other beautiful Himalayan ranges.
For this trip we climb Mera Central 6,461 metres (21,198 ft).The first ascent of Mera Central was on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts & Sen Tenzing.
Safety is first priority.
The standard route from the north involves only high altitude glacier walking. At the end, we will be climbing a few meters just below the summit.
Our cook and kitchen staff will prepare all fresh and hygienic food during the expedition. I will give instructions at Mera peak base camp ensuring all of us have the necessary climbing skills and confidence to summit the top successfully.
Please find below the itinerary and the program of the fantastic ascent!

After a year and a half of planning, a new attempt was made on Ama Dablam. This time a third person joined the climbing party. Acclimatisation on Lobuche gave us a foretaste of what the numerous pitches on Ama Dablam\'s steep terminal slopes would feel like. Good weather conditions and a swift Alpine style climb to C1, C2 and finally the summit concluded this project. Thank you so much Jyamchang for guiding us up there! The timing of the climb (before Autumn\'s commercial expeditions), choice of porters and additional logistics were once again very professional.

Excellent guide, à la fois attentionné et motivant. Il a su s\'adapter à notre rythme tout en nous stimulant suffisamment pour qu\'on atteigne nos objectifs quotidiens. Il nous faisait un briefing journalier avec le programme du lendemain et ses difficultés éventuelles et une vérification de notre adaptation à l\'altitude (pouls, saturation en oxygène). Dès le premier jour, il a tout pris en charge tant du point de vue de l\'organisation des transports que des hôtels sans faux pas.
As some famous mountaineer once said about his Sherpa climbing partner, Jyamchang belongs to a new generation of Nepali guides who really love to climb. For them, mountaineering isn’t just about business. And that’s the reason why we got along very well whilst attempting the ascent of Ama Dablam in April 2017. We were lucky enough to be able to meet beforehand in Chamonix for a thorough check-up of the equipment and a briefing on the various logistics. I found him to be that kind of straight-to-the-point, smiling and organized person I was hoping to have as a guide and partner for an ambitious climb above 6000 meters, which I had only performed once before (on Island Peak). We met at the airport in Kathmandu and joined a good friend of mine and his trekking guide, who accompanied us during the acclimatization trip across the 3 passes and on to EBC. This gave us plenty of time to get our bodies accustomed to altitude. Jyamchang and I performed a daily health check-up to monitor the effects of altitude, a routine which I found to be very professional. We had agreed during our first Skype discussions that we were going to climb alpine style. That is minimum logistics, no fixed ropes etc. The idea of climbing a difficult mountain such as Ama Dablam without these facilitating artefacts strongly appealed to me, and I appreciated that Jyamchang pushed for this approach of the climb. This was not just pulling the client to the top of the mountain and then collecting the summit bonus. Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions the day before summit day, we were unable to reach the summit. However, I found that Jyamchang’s attitude during the difficult descent with rapidly degrading weather conditions, and another party that we had to help descend, was again showing a professional and competent approach to the mountain environment. All in all, we had a great time in the beautiful surroundings of the Khumbu valley and may be climbing together again in a future expedition. I can strongly recommend Jyamchang for trekking and climbing elsewhere in the world (Jyamchang also guides in Norway). Martin, 32 - Belgium
