Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. It is situated on the edge of the famous Khumbu Region, which Mount Everest dominates. Although very high, Mera Peak is a straightforward climb and is frequently ascended by groups and an individual whose only climbing qualifications are that they are fit and have an outgoing sense of adventure.
The trek takes us south from the airstrip at Lukla, trekking through beautiful forested hillsides and over several passes before climbing up to the Mera La. After the climb, we descend directly to Lukla.
The Mera Expedition is a high-altitude trek and climb. Participants need to be fit and conversant with an ice axe and crampons. Instruction in the use of these will be given at our base camp near the Mera La if required.
Mera Peak Climbing Overview
In good conditions, a fit party can reach the summit and return to Khare in one day. This is a rewarding experience as it provides glorious views of Nepal and a vista that takes in Kangchenjunga and Makalu to the east and Everest appearing over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north.
To the west stands the spires of Ama Dablam and Kang Taiga and in the distance is the mighty bastion of Cho Oyu. This is a fine panorama of many of the world’s highest peaks.
The climb itself takes the north face glacier in a steady rise to the summit ridge which leads, in an exposed and exciting situation, to the top. After the mountain has been climbed, we return by a direct route across a dramatic ridge to Lukla and the flight to Kathmandu.
This trip can be organized as a trip with tented accommodation in camps and tea house/guesthouse accommodation.
In this Mera Peak Climbing itinerary, we have only included the accommodation in tea houses as it is relatively much cheaper than camping (staying in a tent and cooking meals in a kitchen tent). But the accommodation at high/base camp (1/2 days) will be in a tent as there are no guesthouses/teahouses up there.
This is included in the itinerary. In the case of one to two trekkers, the guide himself will prepare the food whereas in the case of a greater number of trekkers, a separate cook will be sent along to prepare food at tented camps.
The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable. It can change within a few hours which is why a spare day has been added keeping the fact in mind. In case of bad weather on the day of the summit, you can walk up the summit the following day. Otherwise, if the weather remains sane and works in the favor then the spare day can be utilized any other day within the day of the flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu.
Since the flights are pre-booked, cancellation and rescheduling might not be possible, especially during the peak seasons. Thus, this one day can be spent on relaxation or rest wherever required.

Physical Level and Preparation
A challenging trek up Mera Peak brings mountaineers to one of the planet’s most well-known destinations. Physical preparation is crucial to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. This trek requires a moderate to high level of fitness because you will be walking for several hours every day and going to high altitudes.

- Mental Preparedness: Mentally prepare yourself for the difficult journey. It’s not just a physical but also a mental battle.
Typically, groups of two to fifteen hikers ascend Mera Peak with the assistance of local staff members and an experienced guide. Due to the small, regulated group size, hikers may form stronger bonds and have more personalized experiences.
Simple teahouses to luxurious hotels are available for lodging during the hiking trail, depending on your preferences and what’s available along the way. Here is a list of popular places to stay:
- Teahouses: These are straightforward, family-run lodges that offer a bed, simple food, and a cozy setting.
- Lodges: Along the hike, there are settlements with lodges that offer extra facilities like attached restrooms and hot showers.
- Tented Camps: Tented camps are another option for lodging in distant regions; these provide a more daring experience.
When trekking, it is important to pack light. Bring only a small daypack with the essentials (water, snacks, layers, camera), as your main gear will be carried between lodges by a porter or yak.
Spirit of Travel
Instead of focusing only on reaching the peak, the Mera Peak Climb is about enjoying the adventure and the route. You will witness Sherpa culture, take in breathtaking views, and form lifelong connections with other hikers along the route. This adventure tests your physical limits, lifts your soul, and never fails to amaze and inspire you with the beauty and tenacity of the natural world.
Several variables, such as the trekking season, the length of the Climb, the type of service you select, and whether you travel with a guide or on your own, can affect the price of the Everest Three High Pass trek. The typical breakdown of trek costs is as follows:
- Guided trek: A guided trip will typically cost you money for permits, accommodation, food, lifts to Lukla, a guide, and maybe a porter. It is recommended that you trek with a guide for your convenience and protection. The average cost of a guided hike may range from $1,200 to $2,500 per person.
- Independent trek: Traveling alone will typically be less expensive, but you must arrange your housing, meals, permits, and transportation. Hikers on a strict budget can complete the trek for between $800 and $1,200, without including equipment and permits.
- Peak season vs Off season: Due to increased demand, trekking during the busiest seasons—spring and autumn—tends to be more costly. Winter and monsoon, which are off-peak seasons, have more favorable weather and cost less.
Before beginning the Mera Peak Climb, you must be aware of any potential cancellation fees in case your intentions change. Before booking a reservation, it’s critical to read and understand the tour operator’s cancellation policy because different operators may have different fees. In general, the closer your departure date is, the higher the cancellation fees may be. Consider purchasing cancellation coverage when purchasing travel insurance to reduce potential losses.

- Local Currency: For modest purchases along the trail, it is advised to bring small quantities of Nepalese Rupees. There are ATMs in larger towns like Namche Bazaar.

Getting insurance is a must when organizing an adventure trip, such as a hike to the Mera Peak Climb. Even though it could appear like an extra cost, it provides priceless security and comfort. These are strong arguments for thinking about getting insurance for your hike:
- Emergency Medical Coverage: There are risks associated with trekking to high elevations, such as altitude sickness and injuries, such as being at the Mera Peak climb. Emergency medical costs are covered by travel insurance, including, if needed, helicopter evacuation.
- Lost or Stolen Property: Personal property can be stolen or lost anywhere, including when hiking. The expense of replacing misplaced or stolen goods, such as equipment, electronics, or passports, may be covered by insurance.
- Emergency Evacuation: You might need to be flown by helicopter to a medical center in the event of a serious illness or injury. Although these evacuations can be expensive, travel insurance frequently pays for them.
- Search and Rescue: Insurance may be able to assist with the costs associated with conducting a search and rescue operation in certain, uncommon circumstances.

He was trustworthy, reliable and always smiling with a great sense of humors.
They all were excellent and was perfect in organizing any sort of tour in a perfect way. I can wholeheartedly recommend them, the Adventure White Himalaya Treks. Thank you !
Amazing life experience!
Trekking for 4 days in a rhododendron forest, waking up to fresh snow and the sunrise at Poon Hill, amazing adventure!!!! I will go back, I will most definitely contact Ganesh to schedule another adventure in the Nepal. He is a hard worker with great knowledge of the area.
We dealt with Ganesh before the trip and are very happy with the service provided. Everything was as promised.
Our guide, Hari, did an excellent job in planning our whole journey and improvising wherever he saw fit. He also was very in tuned with our fitness level and we didn’t feel that we were pushed beyond our capabilities.
Our porter, Gopi, was also very helpful especially in keeping our spirits up during the whole journey.
All in all I would highly recommend Adventure White Himalaya Treks Pvt Ltd to anyone who is going trekking in Nepal.
Delicated Trip Guide
This trip – Annapurna Base Camp is one of the most remembered trip I had with amazing experience with both the mountain and good dedicated guide and porters.
We had a fabulous time trekking at ABC. Our guide Jiban and his team was knowledgeable, pleasant – not only did we all have fun, they also took great care of us and made sure we all had a good time! Our group was also blessed with good weather at the right time throughout the trip
