  • Summit to the highest trekking peak, the Mera Peak

Mera Peak is considered to be the highest trekking peak in Nepal as the Mera Peak elevation lies at an altitude of 6,654 meters above the sea level. Although being the highest peak in Nepal that can be climbed without any oxygen support, the summit is a straight forward climb and can be summited by anyone with a basic mountaineering skill and good physical condition. It is an amazing travel package in Nepal for those who're looking to climb a trekking peak within the Great Himalayas as the trail is filled with an alluring appeal of the mountains, glaciers and ice falls. An expedition team that includes well experienced and highly skilled guide(s) and Sherpa(s) will be at the traveler's service during the Mera peak expedition in Nepal.

One other prime attraction regarding the Mera Peak climbing in Nepal is that during the journey, travelers can witness 5 of the 6 tallest mountain peaks in the world namely Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Makalu (8485m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8188m), and Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m) along with other several peaks that lies in the Himalayan region of Nepal, Tibet, and India. The panoramic views of these mountain peaks in Nepal are truly something to behold which can be experienced only from the summit of Mera Peak.

This trip is organized both as a trip with tented accommodation in camps as well as in tea houses and guest houses. The weather in Himalayas can be very unpredictable and can change within few hours. Because of the complexity of this situation, we've added an extra day on the itinerary as we can walk up to the summit the next day in case of a bad weather. The Mera Peak climbing however is not only about the mountains and glaciers. The journey is filled with different natural and cultural aspects of the Everest Region of Nepal. We'll be passing through many Sherpa villages along the way experiencing and witnessing the unique way of lifestyle and heritage. We'll also be passing through many monasteries and gumba which are essential spiritual aspect to many people residing in these areas. The rich flora and fauna are also major attraction of this trekking in Nepal.

Altitude Sickness: 

Symptoms of Altitude Sickness may start once you reach 1500-2000 meters and upwards. If you gain altitude rapidly without letting your body adapt to the thin oxygen at higher altitudes, you are most likely to suffer from Altitude Sickness. But if you plan for acclimatization days to your itinerary, you are good to go. 

The itinerary includes acclimatization days to avoid Altitude Sickness. The sickness is common at high altitudes. Please note that sickness is a topic to be taken very seriously. Here are some few extra preventions: 

  • Avoid climbing rapidly, give your body some time to adjust 
  • Drink more water, not less than 5 liters a day 
  • Eat more, eat often, and eat healthily 
  • Listen to your body, do not ignore symptoms 
  • Do not skip acclimatization days 
  • Be prepared in case of an emergency

I really enjoyed my time in Nepal. Peak climbing has been my interest for years and being able to do that in Nepal was really an inspiring moment of my life. The climb was challenging, not going to lie, but it was totally worth it.

I was able to acquire a feeling of accomplishment and had a chance to zoom in on the cultural aspect of Nepal. Always have been inspired by the country and always will be.
