Mera Peak at 6,476m is the highest of the trekking peaks in Nepal and is considered as one of the most popular since the panorama is stunning and it requires only basic mountaineering skills. It is situated to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, but sometimes, heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. From the summit of Mera Peak one can see five of the six highest mountains in the world: Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyo. The first ascent was on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing.

Mera peak is one Nepal’s most popular trekking peaks that not many people know, in fact, as we already said it is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. It lies in the Khumbu region of Eastern Nepal and includes the breathtaking views of five of the six highest peaks on Earth; Mount Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Kanchenjunga (8586m) and the highest of them all Mt. Everest (8848m). One of the best place for anyone who is awed by the scenic beauty of the lofty Himalayas.

The highlights of the regions are thousand of snow covered peaks below the blue skies, the glaciers, alluring waterfalls, friendly nature of the Sherpas and rich culture of the inhabitant villages.

The Mera trek is equally good for those who have little or moderate experience in climbing, a good level of fitness and a keen sense of adventure, but some of the sections can be quite challenging and might demand some technical skills. But, if you don’t consider yourself to be a climber then don’t let this put you off.

If you want to feel prepared, then a one week course involving an introduction to alpine mountaineering skills would be excellent preparation, but to be honest, the above necessary technical skills can easily be acquired on Mera itself. Although Mera Peak is very high, the climbing is straightforward. The 6,476m Mera Peak is a strenuous climb with some short, steeper sections of 35-degree snow, so Ice axe and crampons are the essential equipment.

A trip to Mera Peak takes you through remote region of Nepal with densely forested hillsides of Nepal’s middle hills to the alpine environment. We begin with a spectacular mountain flight to Lukla (2850 m) where you will meet your crew and start the trek. We trek through the remote villages of the Hinku valley and reach Khare (5000 m), which is often used as Base Camp. We will set up our Base Camp at the Mera la (5200 m). An Advanced Base Camp will be set up at 5760 m from where we will attempt the summit.

During the trek, you will enjoy with the bliss amid the beauty of nature, and your mind feels relaxed and refreshed.

It is a place to reach for people who are passionate about climbing and trekking. The trek promises you a unique experience that gives you a memory of a lifetime.

Kothe- Mera PeakAlthough no previous climbing experience is required you must be very fit and have extensive outdoor experience to participate in this Expedition.

Grading

Our grading system for trekking:

There are many different factors that contribute to the difficulty of a particular trip
Our grading are based on various factors such as length of trek and walking day, trail conditions, maximum altitude and average altitude, elevation gain/loss per day, prevailing weather conditions, temperature range, remoteness and general level of comfort.
Although we have tried to make our grading system as clear as possible, it cannot take into account your personal interests, abilities or experience. If you have any questions about the nature of a particular trip or its suitability for you, please contact us at info@hionlifeadventures.com

Grade A: Leisure

These adventure tours are our least demanding trips suitable for people with a basic level of fitness and good health. These trips may involve long drives usually on private transport. Sightseeing trips are conducted on foot. The itinerary may also take you to remote places with basic lodging facilities and may also involve a day or two of hiking. We expect you to carry a small back pack weighing about 4 to 5 kgs.
Recommended preparation: Walking on undulating terrain for an hour, for at least 2-3 months prior to departure.

Grade B: Easy to moderate

These adventures involve trekking between 7 to 10 days in remote areas where facilities are often basic. These trips involve some camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 3 to 6 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined and relatively easy, but it doesn’t mean it will be a walk in the park. In the Himalayas, flat trail are extremely rare sights, so there will be plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 3800m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 400m with perhaps an odd day ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to 0C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade C: Moderate

These treks are slightly more difficult. Our moderate treks are between 11 to 15 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 4 to 7 hours of walking each day on good trails with plenty of time for sightseeing. The itineraries often include 1 or 2 rest days. The trails are generally well defined but with plenty of ascents and descents on rocky terrains and often on stony steps. The altitudes are moderate and rarely go above 4500m. The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with occasional harder days ascending/ descending about 800m. There are no extremes of weather and the daytime temperatures generally do not get lower than 5C with exceptional cases during bad weather when it can get down to -5C.

Recommended preparation: Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure.

Grade D: Challenging

These adventures are more challenging and remote and with altitudes up to 5600m. Our challenging treks are between 13 to 24 days in remote areas with camping or basic lodging. The trekking days are often between 5 to 7 hours of walking each day with some days involving crossing a pass with up to 10 hours walking. Generally the trails are well defined, but there will be days which involve climbing steep rocky terrains at high altitudes and crossing icy and rocky glaciers in harsh weather conditions.
The average daily ascents and descents will be about 300m to 500m with a few harder days ascending/ descending about 1000m. The itineraries often include rest days after such big ascents.
Temperatures can get below Zero in the daytime at high altitudes and can fall down to -10C at night.

Recommended preparation: Stamina is essential, as walking days are long. We recommend previous trekking experience, preferably at altitude. Walking or jogging 45 mins to 1 hour for at least two times a week on undulating terrain or on a tread mill with inclined angle for at least 3 months prior to departure. Cycling is recommended. Long day hikes on weekends with a daypack in variable weather conditions is also recommended.

This trip was on of the most exciting we have ever done. The mountains at and around Kumbu valley are spectacular. It was a multi-peak expedition and we started with Mera peak and finally ended at Lobuche peak.
It was organised well and everyone involved in preparing it was very friendly and nice.

Having Saran as a guide is great because he brings many years of experience with him, and has very good judgement, about weather conditions and safety precautions.
Every day we had a briefing about what is to come and how to prepare, which is nice.

The acclimatisation process is good because it allowed us to become acclimatised on our own pace and there was absolutely no rush to any point.
On summit day we woke up in the middle of the night, and everyone was in good spirit. The experienced mountain guides in our team were very helpful throughout the entire summit up and down. We were pretty exhausted at the end of the day but very happy with the results.

Having attempted Mera peak before attempting Lobuche peak was very useful because even though we didn’t reach Mera peak because of weather conditions, we got acclimatised really good.
Hi On Life Adventures, although a small company, has very friendly and professional personnel. If we ever go back to Nepal we would certainly consider them as guides.
