About Trip:

Our way to Mera, the highest trekking peak in Nepal, is through the classic gateway to Everest via Lukla. The hike to the area takes us through an undulating landscape of cascading rivers and dense pine and rhododendron forests, of ever higher valleys and trails that lead us to our ultimate goal of Mera Peak and our high camp at 5800 meters.  While the climb is technically straightforward the mountain's height is such that oxygen levels are half of those at sea level, so either previous climbing experience or a period of acclimatization via a trek is recommended to attempt the summit. 

The hike itself is more a test of resolve than technique, with the final push to the summit aided by fixed ropes laid by the guide to aid in the ascent. Once on top of Mera the views of the surrounding area are amongst the finest one could hope for, an eagle's eye view of the entire Khumbu basin and the surrounding Himalayan giants, from mighty Everest to Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu, with even distant Kanchenjunga visible on a clear day. After the summit bid we descend back through the base camp and make our way back towards Lukla, congratulating ourselves on the way for our never to be forgotten experience.

If you want to get that first taste of climbing a Himalayan peak, or simply want to take that extra step over a typical trek through Nepal, climbing Mera may well be the perfect solution. Why not get in touch with us and go over the options with us?  The two windows of opportunity for making the climb are March through to May and September through to November.

Trip Highlights

  • Rai, Limbu and other Sherpa villages and their culture

Y COMO DIJE VOLVÍ A NEPAL PARA SUBIR EL MERA PEAK CON RAJ...

Rating:  

Dos años después de hacer con Raj el EBC y los tres pasos volví nuevamente con el para subir el Mera Peak. Ni se me ocurrió buscar otra agencia: no era necesario, con Raj estaba en buenas manos. Al igual que dos años antes todo fue perfecto: disfrute del trek, del día de aproximación al campo de altura, de la subida nocturna a la cima, del berrido que pegue cuando hice cumbre, de los momentos de sufrimiento y de los que fueron relativamente suaves... Porque los que subimos montañas sabemos lo que se sufre haciéndolo y también disfrutamos con ello. Y por supuesto igualmente disfrute tomando una cerveza con Raj en su oficina celebrando que lo había conseguido. Algo que como ya he comentado valoro sobremanera: Raj es un profesional serio en cuanto a la gestión del trek se refiere, pero después es una persona con quien tomarse una cerveza y brindar por todo lo brindable. Gracias Raj, volveré...
