Description

Come and join me for an amazing 20-day trek to the top of the famous Mera Peak (6,476m) in Nepal.

Located in the Himalayas, Mera Peak is considered one of the highest permitted trekking peaks in Nepal. The view from the summit of this majestic peak is nothing short of incredible. You will be able to see at least five 8,000 meter plus peaks, including Cho Oyu (8,188m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,485m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m), and Mount Everest (8,848m). This makes this trek an absolute must for anybody wishing to see our planet's greatest peaks!

Over the course of this trek, you will pass through untouched forests and glacial lakes, walk through beautiful valleys and see the aforementioned peaks, as well as others such as Chamlang (7,321m). Every moment of every day will be an adventure all on its own.

When we finally reach the Mera Peak Base Camp, you will also have the chance to undergo a 3-day glacier course. We will go over several important items. We'll cover rope techniques, cramponing on ice, snow and ice anchorage, glacier exploration, crevasse rescue, and also climbing. All of these skills are very important for the climb ahead because we will be climbing through steep rock, snow and ice. Hence, this brief course is crucial to help you reach the summit safely.

So let me guide you on this breathtaking journey to one of the highest trekking peaks in the world. Let me guide you to a summit where you will get to see what can only be described as the Himalayas Trophy Case. Where Earth's greatest mountain peaks are displayed in all of their glory. Let me guide you to the top of the Mera Peak!

And if you think you are ready for the greatest challenge, join me on the ascent to the summit of the crown jewel of the HimalayasWant to climb Mount Everest via the south route? Then join me here.

FAQs

I'm alone, can I join a group?

There might be other climbers wanting to climb Mera Peak with our team at the same as you. However, each participant will have his/her own guide for the expedition. This is to maximize safety, but also to take into account the difference in terms of hiking/mountaineering experience of each climber. In any case, there won't be more than 8 participants for each Mera Peak Expedition that we organize.

When are you running your Mera Peak expeditions?

We usually organize 2 expeditions a year, one in October-November, and the other one in April-May. The departure date will depend on your availability and your logistics constraints.

Will Jyamchang Bhote be the one guiding?

Jyamchang Bhote is coordinating each expedition, but he is not necessarily the one who will guide you. You'll be guided by someone from Jyamchang's team, a fully certified or aspirant local NNMGA mountain guide.

What is included in the Mera Peak expedition's price?

The following items are included in the price:

  • Airport pick-up and drop-off.
  • Accommodation in Kathmandu for two people sharing a hotel room (Bed and Breakfast)
  • Flight to and from Lukla
  • 2 nights of tent accommodation and accommodation during the trek, along with meals in the mountains, including food at high camp
  • Guiding services and porters throughout the expedition
  • Trekking and peak climbing permits
  • Climbing bonus
  • Park entry fees
  • Climbing certificate
  • Rental of climbing gear

What is NOT included in the Mera Peak expedition's price?

The following items are NOT included in the price:

  • Lunch, dinner, and beverages in Kathmandu
  • Personal trekking and climbing equipment
  • Travel and medical insurance, emergency rescue evacuation, phone calls, and internet expenses
  • The cost of international air tickets
  • Tips for the trekking guide and porters at the end of the trip
  • Any other expenses not mentioned in the 'Includes' section are not covered.

Please note that in case of trip extension due to bad weather or natural disasters, we are not liable to provide compensation or cover any additional expenses you may incur.

Will I be mixed with other climbers?

There might be other participants in the same Mera Peak expedition, but you will have your own guide.

Will I need to bring technical equipment? Can I rent some there?

It is better if you bring your own personal technical equipment such as your harness, crampons, ice axe, helmet and mountaineering boots. However, if you don't bring them, you can rent them here.

Where is the meeting point?

We'll meet at the airport of Kathmandu, where we will pick you up (and drop you off after the expedition).

What is the procedure if I need to terminate the expedition and return to Kathmandu before the completion of the tour?

There may be situations where you need to terminate the expedition and return to Kathmandu due to various reasons such as illness, injury, personal circumstances, natural disasters, etc. Rest assured, we will ensure your safe return to Kathmandu and arrange transportation to the airport.

Please note that no refunds will be provided in such cases, as all the parties involved in planning the expedition (staff, guides, logistics, etc.) will have already been compensated by that point. We highly recommend purchasing cancellation insurance to mitigate any financial risks. Please also buy a mountain rescue insurance, which will cover you in case you need to be transported by to Kathmandu by helicopter.

How experienced do I need to be?

You need to be a strong hiker and have experience hiking/climbing above 4000 meters. Note that prior to ascending Mera Peak, we will provide you with essential training on glacier and ice techniques during our acclimatization period.

What are some recommended accommodations near our adventure location?

We understand that finding the perfect place to stay is an essential part of your adventure experience.

What people are saying about this trip

Our guide Phurpur was amazing and the climb was surreal. However, we finished the trip early due to a fast pace while walking and this meant we had to pay for our own food and accommodation from day 17 to 20. Which we felt was unjust as we were penalised for going faster than normal, had we known this was the case we wouldn’t have done it. Also be warned, although our guide was amazing, we didn’t get the IFMGA guide as advertised, we got a trekking guide. Finally, we did not receive a 3-day glacier course as promised on the itinerary. We raised these points to Jyamchang, but no compromise was made on their behalf. Overall, happy with the guide but very disappointed with the company and how they dealt with our situation. If the listing was properly advertised and you received what was listed with no catches and clauses we would have been happy, but this is not the case.
