Mera Peak climbing is an excellent option for anyone with moderate mountaineering experience. It is a challenging trekking peak due to its elevation, but the technical mountaineering skills requirement is very basic. Besides, Himalayan Glacier’s seasoned Sherpa guide will provide us with a basic mountaineering training before the actual summit.
Q1: How Hard is Mera Peak Climbing?
Mera Peak is known to be one of the highest climbing peaks of Nepal. It is not a difficult climb at an extreme altitude of 6,461m (21,190ft.) except for the final summit of 100m/328ft. with a steep that needs to be climbed vertically. Mera Peak climbing is a great introduction to high altitude climbing and the most appropriate practice climb before attempting for other challenging mountain expeditions. Getting to the base camp of Mera Peak all the way from Lukla on a regular trekking trail is, in fact the hard part. It is on the trekking segment where you must be ready to deal with tiresome days of hiking for several days and keeping yourself in a good shape and tackle with altitude sickness as well. The climbing section is easy and safe because of the fixed lines, so we highly recommend this climb even for a beginner who wants to climb an ice-peak. It is always wise to consult with experts like Himalayan Glacier before planning your trip emotionally. We will guide you and help you with all the requirements including physical fitness and exercises right from day one.
Q2: Which is the best season for Mera Peak Climbing?
It is possible to climb Mera Peak all through the year although summer time is not recommended as it is also the monsoon period. However, spring and fall seasons are considered to be the best and most suitable time of the year for any climbing journey in the Himalayas. September through November is the fall season, also called autumn, and the temperatures are moderate and weather tends to be very clear. March through early June is the spring season and also the busiest climbing season of the year in Nepal. Mera Peak can also be attempted during the winter, but the extreme cold around this time could be hazardous for climbers who are not experienced enough to tackle the altitude as well as the biting cold.
Q3: What if i cancel the trip, Do i get my refund?
Himalayan Glacier offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.
Q4: Is my trip departure guaranteed?
You will be climbing along with other like-minded people unless you book for a private tour or we do not have a group on your preferred date. You will be guided by Himalayan Glacier’s experienced and knowledgeable local climbing instructors or Sherpa climbing leaders who have been to the top of the peak successfully multiple times. Some climbing leaders have also summited Mt. Everest at least once or few times in their climbing career. Your guide will provide you with important tips and teach you the tricks while assisting you from day one. He will also provide you with pre-climbing training the day before summit at the base camp. Lot of cheap operators do not take this climbing trip seriously thereby risking your health or well-being, so be very prudent when you choose your climbing operator.
