HIGHLIGHTS

  • Enjoy a nontechnical climb in the Everest region
  • Experience off the beaten path trek through Sherpa villages of Paiya, Thaknak & Khare
This is an excellent opportunity to climb Nepal’s highest trekking peak, which means a peak that can be climbed without having to obtain a permit. Join us on this guided experience of a lifetime and climb a mountain in the Everest region. From the summit, you can enjoy stunning views of several 8,000m plus peaks, such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu. In addition to taking you more than 6,400 meters above sea level, this climbing trip trek allows you to enjoy numerous stops at teahouses and overnight camps in a region rich in culture.

The journey begins with a short scenic mountain flight to Lukla followed by a trek through a number of Sherpa villages, noticeable by their gompas (monasteries), chortens (engraved stones) and multi-colored Tibetan prayer flags. Venture along more isolated and less-trodden trails through Hinku and Hunku valleys en route to Mera Peak Base Camp. You will summit the peak on Day 12 and return back to Kathmandu. Mera Peak is not a technical climb since its slopes do not exceed 30 degrees. You will feel safe as fixed ropes will guide you to the summit while you follow in your guide’s footsteps.

Mera Peak is an ideal choice for anyone with moderate mountaineering knowledge and experience. The most challenging aspect of this trek is getting acclimatized. You will need only basic climbing skills, which our guide can assist you with prior to your ascent to the summit.

Note: Usually, this Mera peak climbing trip involves climbing the Central Mera Peak (6,461m). There are two other faces of Mera Peak – North Mera (6,476m) and South Mera (6,064m). We can also operate climbing trips for these faces as per your request as well. Please do not hesitate to click on the 'Make an Enquiry' button if you have any questions.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
