Mera Peak Climbing (6476m) is a famous mountain peak located in the Himalayas of Nepal. It lies in the Mahalangur section of the Himalaya. Administratively it lies in the Solukhumbu district of Sagarmatha zone in eastern Nepal. Additionally, it is at the east of the main Khumbu trekking trail of the Everest region. Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Moreover, it contains three main summits: Mera North (6476m); Mera Central (6461m); and Mera South (6065m).
Mera Peak Mountaineering is an ideal climb for people who are not expert climbers but still want to reach the top of the lofty mountains of Nepal. Col. Jimmy Robert and Sen Tenzing have first climbed Mera summit in the year 1953. The best time to climb Mera is either Spring (March, April, May) or Autumn (September, October, November) for breathtaking views of the Himalayan Panorama. Further, you can observe five 8000m peaks from the top of Mera that includes Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu.
Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition has been organizing peak climbing for about a decade. Further our Mera Peak Itinerary is carefully designed with steady ascent and a separate day set aside in Khare to allow plenty of time for acclimatization. The most usual route to Mera Peak is directly through the Zatra La Pass, but we follow the route that heads south from Lukla and up the beautiful Hinku Valley and later returns via Zatra La Pass. This offers you stunning scenery of beautiful Nepalese wilderness and rich Sherpa culture.

We booked our trip to climb Mera Peak summit with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We had never climbed a peak before. So, we really had an amazing experience of reaching the summit of Mera Peak. Dendi Sherpa – our guide was more than just a guide. Full of local knowledge, he knew exactly how to tackle technical sections and guided us very sincerely. The whole crew were friendly and caring.
Words are not enough to describe the feeling when reaching the Mera peak summit. It was a great feeling, while we enjoyed the stunning views of world’s high mountains. Many gratitude to Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition including all its members who guided us all the way to Mera Peak. For us, it was an achievement of our lifetime. With our open-heart, we recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for trekking and expedition activities in Nepal.
Greeting, Cindy Cheung & Stanley Kwan
We were a group of four people from Canada, interested to trek and climb Mera Peak. Fortunately, we jumped into Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We were welcomed warmly into their office and discussed our interest on Mera Peak Climbing.
At first, we were in doubt, but after the completion of Mera Peak Climbing, we were very satisfied with the team’s professional service and caring nature. Reaching the summit of Mera Peak was truly fantastic with best views of high mountain valleys and of course the chains of surrounding high mountains. From the summit, we had a great time – looking at Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and a countless number of surrounding mountains.
Apart from the adventurous climbing experience – we also enjoyed trekking along the peaceful paths with green forests and friendly local cultures. Our guide – Ang Dewa Sherpa, always took care of us and really made a huge effort for our successful summit climb. We recommend Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for those wanting to do any adventure related activities in Nepal. We will definitely come back to do some more climbing in the near future with NGT.
Best Regards, Albert + Jolanka
