Mera Peak Climbing - 19 Days



Mera Peak is situated in the Sagarmatha Region, Mahalangur Range, with its altitude rising until 6,476 meters, (21,247ft). Mera Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal. It contains three main summits: Meera North (6,476 meters), Mera Central (6,461 meters) and Mera South (6,065 meters) as well as a smaller “trekking summit”, visible as a distinct summit. It is a good mountain for trekkers who would like a straight forward introduction to mountaineering.

Mera Peak climbing is followed by a short and exciting flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla and after continuous trek for days through the high and lovely valleys, you will get to the area of Mera. Although physically very demanding on account of the altitude, the climb on Mera Peak is not technically difficult as ascending snow slopes rarely exceed 40 degrees. You don’t require much experience to ascend Mera peak except your physical fitness and willing to do it.

If you are planning to reach Mera Peak you can use direct domestic flight to Lukla or in case you love trekking then you can walk from Jiri to Lukla.

Acclimatization

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.

Why Tipping is essential?

There are several reasons why you should tip in Nepal. It is quite the same as for what you tip in restaurants. They live in remote areas that are far from proper health and education facilities. Tipping them will additionally encourage them to manage good and nutritive food to eat, warm and comfortable clothes to wear or other necessary basic requirements to maintain their livelihood in a comfortable way. A small gesture of gratitude will do no harm to you but actually changes the lives of many people for a long time in many reasons. Our company has its fund collected from the some percentage of profit and sometimes from the tips of our guests which will directly invested for uplifting the economic condition of guides, porters and other staffs of office. It’s nothing more than the way to add smiles on those laborious faces.
