Overview

Mera Peak is the paramount Nepalese trekking peak that gives you the opportunity to glimpse over four of the world’s highest mountains. Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal, but you don’t need any mountaineering experience to conquer it.

As you trek through the beautiful high alpine surroundings, Mera Peak can be seen soaring over the valley in all its glory. Dominating the skyline above the wide and thickly forested valley, Mera Peak rises to the south of Everest, showcasing five of the world’s highest mountains – Everest, Kanchenjunga, Amadablam, Baruntse, and Makalu.

With the guidance of one of the world’s most experienced, reliable, and well-trained teams, this Mosaic adventure will be one not to be forgotten. Join us on this epic journey into the clouds, to stand amongst the mountain giants of the Himalayas.

The climb to the summit of Mera starts gradually in the early morning around 3 am. The central summit will soon appear above the head of a wide glacier flanked by two ridges. We climb to the centre of this over open snowfields while avoiding crevasses. The route then swings south east, skirting below and to the east of the left hand ridge before turning back to the right towards the main summit ridge of Mera. Mera actually has three summits; the highest is our objective. We reach this by following a classic snow ridge until just below the final wall that guards the top. This short steep snow slope is easily climbed but there is a big effort required to climb the last 50 meters. Your reward, however, is a feeling of ecstatic jubilation as you survey the magnificent panorama from the top. After taking pictures and enjoying the view, we descend by the same route back to our campsite below the Mera La and on to Khare. Overnight in teahouse.
