Mera Peak (6,461m/ 21,190 ft) is an exciting, scenically stunning mountain becoming popular among trekkers and climbers as it is the highest trekking peak in Nepal in Khumbu (Everest) Valley. Situated on the edge of famous Khumbu Region and dominated by Mt. Everest, climbing Mera peak is an opportunity to all the adventure seekers who are physically fit. Lifting the eyes from Mera and keep on lifting them until, above the clouds, the mighty frieze of the world’s 8000 meter Mountains- Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and many other peaks is an unforgettable experience.The height of Mera is often given as 6461 meters, and claimed to be the highest trekking peak.

The Mera peak climbing starts with amazing Mountain View flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and after continuous trek for days through the high and lovely valleys you will get to the area of Mera..

The only qualification you need to ascend Mera peak is your excellent physical fitness and an extrovert sense of adventure. Our Mera peak itinerary has been carefully designed to allow gradual acclimatization for the climbers. The walk in initially through the virgin forest of the Hinku Valley is incredibly beautiful and provides excellent acclimatization for the peak itself. Our unrivalled service, quality equipment, food, trekking staff and an experienced leader ensure that your Mera trip will be an lifetime adventure experience in Nepal.

Accomodation and Meals

We will be staying in a four-star hotel in Kathmandu (3 nights), tea houses during trekking (11 nights) and tents when climbing (3 nights). Most tea houses along the trail have only been set up recently, so the accommodation will be very basic. For tented accommodation, a 4 season sleeping bag and foam mattress will be provided. In climbing section, toilet facilities will be provided with necessary natural preservation. All accommodation will be on twin-sharing basis. However, single room will be provided on request and by paying a single supplement of USD 350. Also, understand that there are several places that do not allow single room accommodation. On paying single supplement, you will get a single room in Kathmandu.

During our Mera Peak climbing trip, we can enjoy typical Nepali food, different ethnic cuisines as well as all types of international cuisines (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.) A welcome dinner, a farewell dinner and breakfasts will be provided during your stay in Kathmandu. During trekking/climbing, breakfast will be taken in the same place we stay the night. Similar arrangements can also be made for dinner. Lunch will be taken en route to the next destination. During climbing session, hygienic freshly cooked food will be prepared by a trained cook.

Best Season

The most favorable seasons for Mera peak Climbing are spring (March, April, May) and autumn (mid September to November). We do have some departures during some other months as well because we would like to offer some opportunities for people who cannot make their holidays during the best months. The best months has been defined on the basis of visibility and weather condition.

Guidance on Tipping: Tips do not form part of the wages of your porters and trek crew but they are very much appreciated. It is important to remember that tipping is voluntary and should be dependent on good service. Most people will want to tip their local crews and normally tips are given at the end of the trek. This is best done as a group rather than individually. Your trek leader will give you help and advice on this. Groups quite often give the tips with a bit of ceremony (or sometimes a party) on the last evening, to mark the end of the trip. As a rough guide, we recommend that a contribution of around £75 – £80 by each group member should create a good tipping pool. At the end of a trek many people also like to donate various items of their equipment to the porters and trek staff who work so hard to make the trip a success. Boots, gloves, hats, scarves and even socks (clean of course) are always warmly received by the porters. Technical clothing and equipment are highly prized by the local guides and camp crews. If you think you would like to donate equipment at the end of your trip, your trek leader will make arrangements for a fair distribution among the trek crew.

Important Note:

Your health and safety are always major concern while traveling with A One Treks. Please note that your leader/guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary; however, since this adventure leads to travel in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deflect from it. Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary.

The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be adjustable if required.
