The Mera Peak Climbing is one of the most amazing and breath-taking thrills of Nepal. It is an unforgettable adventure that takes you through the hidden Hinku valley of the Khumbu region. A daring climbing adventure, the Mera Peak climb lets you summit to the tallest climbing peak of Nepal. It is a great way to enjoy Nepal’s Himalayan lifestyle and to take in the Khumbu’s natural beauty. In addition, it is also one of the most marvelous accomplishments as well. The panorama of the Himalayas from the top of the summit of Mera Peak is something that is simply indescribable.
Highlights of the Mera Peak Trek
Much like most of the Khumbu region treks, the Mera Peak Climbing also begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From then on, you follow the trekking path to far-off beaten-path villages of the Hinku valley, like Paiya, Thaknak and Khare among others. Throughout the journey, the views of the Everest peaks make the journey even more extraordinary. The towering silver Himalayas line the skyline of the valley in the most dramatic way. Sleep under the stars surrounded by the snow as you make your way to the summit! Enjoy views of peaks like Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, the Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and many more as you relish in the natural pristine environment of the river valley. It is a great respite for your mountaineering soul!
Is the Mera Peak Expedition Difficult?
Although the Mera Peak Climbing is not a technical journey, you still need good stamina for the adventure as you will be trekking for extended periods of time on consecutive days. It takes a lot of stamina and endurance to overcome climbing with weight on your back. Thus, prior training for the Mera Peak climb is important. Previous climbing experience is not necessary; however, it is important to have knowledge about correctly using the climbing equipments for the journey. Pre-climbing training will be provided to you by our professional guide during the journey. You will use equipments like ropes, harnesses and crampons among others as you make your way to the top of the summit. In general, you will need to train for the climb 3 to 4 weeks prior to the journey. Aerobic and cardio exercises work best to built and boost your stamina and increase your body’s endurance capabilities.

I have been a long enthusiast of mountaineering, and Nepal has always been on my list of destinations to visit for its Himalayas. I decided to have Nepal Hiking Team arrange my Mera Peak Climb as I decided that it was one of those adventures that I really wanted to get under my belt. For the services, I would definitely rate Nepal Hiking Team as one of the best travel agencies that I have come across. They were swift in their responses to my questions and queries and when I arrived, they were with me every step of the way, reassuring me of my safety and constantly putting me in a state of mind where I knew that I was in good hands. My guide, Pasang Sherpa, is a veteran in mountaineering and climbing peaks, and I could not be more grateful for his company during my climbing journey.
From arranging my accommodations and tents during the trail to making sure that didn’t lose my footing during the climb up the Mera Peak, Pasang took care of everything flawlessly. His sentiment of us being a family during the journey was also quite heart-warming; it was reassuring to know that he had my back. I was also constantly in contact with the head office of the agency as well, and I knew that if anything happened, then I need not worry about anything as the agency will take care of it for me. I was left to only enjoy my climb and to appreciate Nepal’s Himalayan life without having to worry about anything else. Overall, it was the best trekking adventure that I had. I definitely recommend Nepal Hiking Team to anyone looking for Nepal treks. With them, you can do no wrong.
