The Mera peak, in Nepal, rises to an impressive altitude of 6476 meters. We will ascend it during 18 intense and rewarding days, an unforgettable mountaineering experience.
I have designed the itinerary to ensure an adequate acclimatization. To this end, I decided to follow a longer route. I have many years of experience climbing in this fantastic region of the world. Thus I can confidently say that this longer route will improve your chances to summit the Mera peak safely. Besides, you will enjoy even more the climbing experience!
Firstly, we fly to Lukla. That is where the proper expedition starts. We will hike up to some of the Hinku valley, Pangkongma and to Panch Pokhari. We will continue until base camp.
The base camp is Mera La, at 5415 meters. Once we get there, we will dedicate one day to train climbing. We will cover several aspects of climbing techniques and work on improving your skills. This includes glacier travel, fixing ropes, and ascent and descent techniques. In this way I will make sure you master all the necessary climbing skills to reach the summit safely and confidently.
We will then set camp at an altitude of 5800m, at the high camp. The location will be on a rocky shelf, sheltered by a large rock. The high camp has one of the best panoramic views of the whole trip. Besides, this location will allow for a shorter and more enjoyable summit day.
Summit day begins very early. We will follow the northern route until the summit. The climb here is gradual, and the views along the way are truly outstanding. The panorama keeps getting better and better. Finally, upon reaching the Mera summit you won’t believe the views. It is one of the prime spots to take in all the beauty of the Himalaya. Some of the 8000 meters peaks that we will see include the mythical Mount Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8463m) and Kanchenjunga (8586m). Besides, Chamlang (7319m) and Nuptse (7855m) are also visible.
Join me for this unforgettable experience! Climbing the Mera peak is a challenge, one definitely worth the effort. If you are interested, please send me a request and we will arrange the details. Guiding you to the summit will be an honour.
