Journey to Mera Peak’s Majestic Heights

5 Reviews

Trip Overview

Mera Peak, the loftiest trekking peak, proudly stands at an elevation of 6476 m above sea level in the Mahalangur section, Barun sub-section of the Himalayas. Nestled in the secluded Hinku Valley, south of Mt. Everest, Mera Peak boasts three significant summits: Mera North (6476 m), Mera Central (6461 m), and Mera South at (6065 m).

Historical Significance:

This region has been extensively explored by renowned British Expedition teams, including the legendary Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. Before and after their triumphant ascent of Everest, Mera Peak (North) witnessed its first climb in 1975 by Marcel Jolly, G. Baus, and L. Honills. Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing achieved the feat of climbing Mera Central in May 1953.

Climbing Routes:

The standard route to the summit lies to the North and involves high-altitude glacier walking. While various routes lead to the summit, the West and South-facing ridges present a more challenging climb, demanding technical skills. On the other hand, the North route is relatively easier, making it the standard choice. Mera Peak is accessible to any keen trekker with experience in high-altitude trekking, offering a technically straightforward ascent. The summit rewards successful climbers with breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Kanchenjunga, and other snow-capped peaks in the Khumbu region.

The Journey:

Embarking on the standard route, climbers traverse the Zwatra La Pass at 4160 m, providing an opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture, traditions, and the lifestyle of the Sherpas. The diverse ecosystem, floras, and faunas, along with unique landscapes, accompany the journey. Witness the remoteness and serenity of the lesser-visited Hinku Valley, characterized by fewer teahouses compared to the Everest trail. Expect rugged and steep paths, requiring physical strength and mental preparedness for this exotic yet challenging trip to Mera Peak.

Victory at 6000m:

Ultimately, the climb culminates in the triumph over the snowy peak above 6000 m with basic trekking skills. Join Taktok Brothers on this adventurous journey to Mera Peak, where we ensure your travel is not just challenging but also fun-filled and memorable like no other.

Trip Notes

Trekking and mountain expeditions in the Himalayas are highly dependent on weather conditions. While we aim to schedule our trips during the most favorable times, in case of extreme scenarios, domestic flights to Lukla may experience delays or cancellations. In such cases, we would like to inform you that, apart from the total number of days outlined in the itinerary section, expenses for additional days will be the responsibility of the client. However, Taktok Brothers will make necessary arrangements for the accommodation of porters and guides. If you prefer alternative arrangements, such as a helicopter flight to avoid flight delays, we can organize it at a nominal extra charge.

Additionally, Taktok Brothers will not be liable for any compensation for losses due to missed international flights. Nevertheless, we are committed to assisting you in making necessary arrangements to minimize any potential loss. To prevent missing flights, we recommend maintaining some flexible time frames both before and after the trip departure.

Cost of Expedition

Expedition costs vary based on factors such as group size, royalty and permit costs in different seasons, the category of hotel accommodation, the number of Sherpas allocated, equipment, type of arrangement, and package customization. Therefore, we prefer discussing these details with our clients before providing the final cost. Please feel free to contact Taktok Brothers for any information regarding your selected package.
