Mera Peak is the highest of the peaks in Nepal that are defined as ‘trekking peaks’. At 6476m it is a high mountain that requires little technical climbing on its normal route. Our guided trip is 21 days long starting from arrival in Kathmandu to the earliest date of departure home. The actual trekking and climbing days is 16 which includes two summit days.
Our groups are normally small teams of around 4 or 8 people with moderate climbing and hiking experience looking to try a snowy summit in Nepal which is not too technical but which requires basic alpine skills. Typically, groups have done some winter climbing before and learnt some techniques but never tested themselves at high altitude.
We travel as a group with a team of porters take the kit to the lodges and set up the camps on the mountain. There is a base camp and a high camp; it’s possible to summit from base camp but we normally try to put in a camp on the snow.
