All about this trip
Ultimate Mera Peak Expedition is the highest of the designated trekking peaks in Nepal. Its altitude rises to 6,461m with amazing views of five of the world’s 8000-meter peaks: Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse and Cho Oyo from the summit. This makes Mera Peak a great challenge but one that’s more than achievable.
Mera Peak lies in the Mahalangur section in the Makalu Barun National Park, situated in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal. There are three main summits of Mera Peak: north (6,476m), central (6,461m) and south (6,065m). Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing were the first people to ascend the Mera Central on 20th May 1953. Trekkers require special permits to enter the Makalu Barun National Park and to climb the peak. EverTrek takes care of this for you.
The Ultimate Mera Peak expedition begins with an exciting 40-45 min flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla (Labelled the most dangerous airport in the world). The trek winds it’s way through forests of rhododendron, pine and bamboo, taking a longer, less trodden trail that gradually passes through the beautiful landscape of the Hinku Valley up to Mera Peak. You will fall in love with the most incredible mountain views, sample the local Sherpa culture and lifestyle and get to experience a real Himalayan expedition.
Climbing Mear Peak is physically demanding due to its altitude, but not technically difficult. We plan these trips at times of the year where the you will have the best chance of summiting the peak. Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November) are the best times to climb the Mera Peak in terms of weather, visibility and the trails.
Note: As a responsible trekking agency, your safety is our top priority. During the trek, the team leader or guide assigned to your group is the person responsible for your safety. These team leaders are also strictly instructed to follow the provided itinerary. However, in case of unfavorable situations like poor weather, bad health of a group member or unforeseen natural disasters, the team leaders or guide hold every authority to alter the itinerary provided to you. In such a situation, we expect and request you to be flexible and cooperative

The Ultimate Mera Peak Expedition is a tough and arduous trek and climb. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter. You should have experience of walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of Himalayan trekking is preferable, but not essential as long as you are a very regular and committed hill-walker. As this route takes you over remote high passes and a Himalayan peak, experience of having been to 5000-metres before is ideal.
