Weather and Temperature

Temperatures are variable in high areas of Europe. In such conditions, it can be difficult to avoid harsh conditions. Temperatures can fall rapidly and snowfall can happen anywhere in the year. Climbing at Mera Peak can be quite difficult and grueling at first. Warm temperatures and rain or snow-free conditions are important for an easy climb. Therefore if severe weather changes are present, the risk of climbing will be greater.

Altitude Sickness

In the mountains there's anxiety about high altitude illness. Mountain sickness has been reported at higher altitudes over 3,500 meters. The Mera Peak trip takes you from 0400 m to 1400 m (Kathmandu) at a height of 6,476 meters (Mera Peak). The altitude changes between them each day. So anyone in a poor position at a lower or higher altitude is prone to acute mountainsickness (AMS) or altitude sickness. This is a very challenging part of this Mera peak journey and summit climb.

Physical Fitness

Even without climbing the Mera peak you should have a good bodyweight and adequate physical strength. Do you want to improve your fitness? It is possible to perform different activities to improve your strength, such as a fitness workout or walking. The workout must begin at least a month before the climb. But for people with no motivation to exercise, it can be difficult to prepare for this activity.

Permits required for Mera Peak Climbing

A permit is required for climbing Mera Peak. Only certified trekking agencies can offer it. There must be 3 tickets: Local Area Permit, National Park entrance Permit and Mountain Climber. Like other treks or hikes, Mera Peak permits fees can vary in distinct seasons according to progress. You may get your NMA Card in Kathmandu.

Walking Tour at Kathmandu and preparation for Climbing and Trek

Hotel Kathmandu is Nepal's historic capital which contains an impressive amount of historic arts, temples & monuments. The Kath Mandu sightseeing trip is a must during the Nepal visit. A re-entry into the city will take place on the second day. Kathmandu has several world heritage sites such as Pashupatinath Temple and the Pachayati temple. They all have cultural significance and they're worth a trip, but there is no way you can see everything in one day. There must be 3-4 places in total.

FLIGHT TO LUKLA – TREK TO PAIYA

It's less than one hour of flying, it flies into rural Nepal and concludes with breathtaking land in Lukla. In Lukla we go first through Surke and cross a river before climbing up steeply towards Kakhepani then slowly to Chutok la. It'll take an hour and a little over an hour to get to the flats in Paiya. Three days.

Ningsow to Chhatra Khola

From Ningsow, we climb first, then descend and continue until we reach Ramailo Danda. The views of Mera Peak and Salpa are spectacular. We climb and drop off on the trail into Makalus Baran National Park. Our route through Chhastra Khola from there is Pasang Lamu Trail. During this trip, the chances are that we may find the elusive Red Panda. Overnight in Khakhtrakhola.

TREK TO TAGNAK

Our walk begins with a trip to the edge of the glacier river fed by the surrounding mountains. A new opening in a valley is opened, which reveals the mountains which line dig glacier on both sides. Upon approaching tagsak the trail to Mera Glacier is seen from east. The damage caused by this valley is obvious when we travel through the valley. We came back to Tagnak around 3 o'clock and stayed there until 4pm. Day eight.

Mera High Camp to Summit and back to Khare

It's an essential day for our expedition. We start breakfast at 3AM. In the first few days it is extremely cold, but gradually warm as the glaciers are pushed back and we reach the unusual peak. The first rays of light struck these huge mountain tops with stunning red light. The route continues to be non-technically challenging when we slowly ascend to high elevation into the ever shrinking air. It steeply descends behind the summit, before the summit is returned to view again. At the base of the last steep mountain cone, the climbing leader can use a fixed rope or ropes if they believe this is required. This is about two metres from the summit.

Trek back from Khare to Kothe

5-10 hour trek Teahouses. In these sections, you'll pass Thangnakk before coming out of Kothes. Thangnek has an old place where you had an overnight stay before you arrived in Istanbul. Then you won't need to stay at Thngangk because Kothe is easily accessible within three to four hours of hiking. Most of the routes down hill are easier for walking down slope trails. Taking the route from Khare to Kothe, the altitude drops. You're going mostly through the dense forests of oaks, pines and rhododendrons in which you walk.

Can a beginner climb Mera Peak?

The Mera Peak, 6989 meters in height, are popular among beginners and serve as preparations to climb the highest mountains such as Everest. However, it is physically demanding and requires fairly minimal technical skills and can be reached easily for those with a reasonably good physical condition.

How difficult is Mera Peak climb?

What are some difficulty levels to climb Mera Peak? Climbing Meran Peak isn't very technical. It isn't a steep technical climb, although its altitude of 661 metres makes this an extremely difficult climb to reach 681 metres. The trek to Marra is relatively simple compared to most Nepal trekking mountains.

Is Mera Peak harder than kilimanjaro?

Mera peak is certainly tougher, as Kilimanjaro is harder and demands endurance. The journey up to Mera Peak summit has been difficult.

How long does it take to climb Mera Peak?

Mera Peak has some serious difficulties in addition to altitudes. The summit night climb to the top of the glacier continues. Expect five-6 hour hikes to climb to the top of this glacier!

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. we cross the pass, we are welcomed by the sight of the beautiful Lukla Valley which is surrounded by Cho Oyu, Kongde Peak, Numbur Himal, Kusum Khangru and other Himalayan peaks.

Mera Peak Climbing Preparation

Preparing for Mera Peak climbing requires careful planning and physical readiness. Begin by building your overall fitness through a combination of cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and endurance activities. Focus on developing strength in your legs, core, and upper body to cope with the demanding terrain. Acclimatization is crucial, so incorporate altitude training hikes and consider gradual ascent schedules to optimize your chances of success. Familiarize yourself with mountaineering techniques, such as rope handling, glacier travel, and basic crevasse rescue. Practice using climbing gear like crampons, ice axes, and harnesses to ensure proficiency. Acquire proper clothing and gear suitable for extreme cold conditions, including insulated layers, waterproof outerwear, sturdy boots, and a well-fitted backpack. Additionally, mentally prepare for the physical and mental challenges that come with high-altitude mountaineering. Undertaking pre-trip research, consulting experienced guides, and joining a reputable expedition team will provide essential guidance and support throughout your Mera Peak climbing journey.

Mera Peak Climbing Insurance and Helicopter Rescue

Having comprehensive travel insurance is essential when undertaking Mera Peak climbing due to the inherent risks associated with high-altitude mountaineering. Ensure that your insurance policy specifically covers mountaineering activities, including high-altitude trekking and helicopter rescue services. Verify that the policy provides adequate medical coverage for altitude-related illnesses and injuries, emergency evacuation, and repatriation. Understand the policy's altitude limitations and ensure it covers the altitudes involved in Mera Peak climbing. Helicopter rescue coverage is particularly crucial in remote areas where immediate medical attention may be required. Confirm that the insurance includes helicopter rescue services, as rescues in the mountains can be costly. Familiarize yourself with the claim procedures and keep a copy of your insurance policy and emergency contact numbers readily accessible during the climb. Prioritize your safety by investing in reliable insurance coverage that provides peace of mind and financial protection in case of any unforeseen circumstances or emergencies during your Mera Peak climbing expedition.

Acute mountain sickness (AMS) Risk, Syndrome, and Cure

Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a common concern during Mera Peak climbing due to the significant altitude gain. It is caused by the body's inability to adapt quickly to reduced oxygen levels at higher elevations. Symptoms of AMS include headache, nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and shortness of breath. To prevent AMS, it is crucial to allow for proper acclimatization by gradually ascending to higher altitudes, taking rest days, and hydrating adequately. It is recommended to ascend no more than 300-500 meters per day and have an additional acclimatization day in Khare (Mera Peak Base Camp) before attempting the summit. In case of mild AMS symptoms, immediate descent to a lower altitude, rest, and hydration can help alleviate discomfort. However, for severe AMS cases, where symptoms worsen or become life-threatening, prompt descent and medical evacuation via helicopter may be necessary. Proper planning, understanding AMS symptoms, and having experienced guides who monitor your condition are vital to ensure a safe and successful Mera Peak climbing expedition.

When preparing for Mera Peak climbing, it is crucial to prioritize your physical fitness and take necessary precautions to mitigate altitude-related illnesses. Endurance training plays a vital role in building stamina and cardiovascular fitness required to cope with the extreme altitudes. Incorporate activities such as hiking, running, cycling, and swimming into your training routine to improve your overall endurance. Additionally, focus on specific altitude training by including hikes at high elevations to gradually expose your body to reduced oxygen levels. This helps in acclimatization and prepares you for the extreme altitude conditions you will encounter during the climb. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms and prevention strategies of altitude-related illnesses such as acute mountain sickness (AMS), high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE), and high altitude cerebral edema (HACE). Understanding these conditions and their warning signs is crucial for early recognition and appropriate action. It is advisable to consult with experienced mountaineering professionals and consider joining guided expeditions to ensure you have the necessary support, guidance, and expertise to navigate the challenges of climbing at extreme altitudes.

This peak provides the best views of the Himalayas, which include five of the highest peaks in the world. The top of Mera Peak offers an amazing panorama of the high mountain range.

Climbing Mera Peak is ideal for those who are looking for adventure. The mountain is covered with snow and ice and requires a high level of physical fitness and experience to do successfully climb the mountain. Climbers will also need crampons and an ice axe.

If you are considering climbing Mera Peak, you need to acclimatize to the altitude well in advance. You will also need to know the best time to climb. The best time to climb Mera Peak is during the spring and autumn seasons. It is also advisable to trek in the dry season.

There are two main routes to climb Mera Peak. One route is through the Thangnak valley. This route is less difficult but involves a long way of trekking. Another route is the direct route to Lukla. Climbing Mera Peak is not recommended in the monsoon season as the trek may become too difficult.

In order to climb Mera Peak, you will need to obtain permits from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). The permit will also depend on the season. The climb will also require a helicopter evacuation. The permit will cost you around USD 250 per person.

Four Seasons of Trekking in Nepal
____________________________________

Spring: March-May

The spring season of March/April/May is the best for holidays in the Nepalese Himalayas. The sky and the weather are very clear and sunny in these months and the temperature is warmer. At heights below 3,500 meters, you can expect temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees during the daytime, although these will drop at night. Once above 3,500, you should expect significant temperature drops at night and early morning, often as low as -15 degrees.

There is some rain in these months, but nothing severe and this really helps to bring out the natural colors in the varied flora and fauna, especially in the national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron.

This is the primary time for tourism in Nepal with trekkers and mountain climbers seen all across the country.

Summer: June – August

Nepal experiences its monsoon season during June, July, and August, and it can sometimes last until mid-September. Some treks are possible in mid-June before the rains really get heavy, however, visibility can be limited.

The rains bring other challenges and obstacles. Mountain flights are not so frequent,
while landslides can block the roads. Trekking in mid-June is still possible but we advise against the classic treks such as Everest due to the risk of long delays at Lukla which could potentially lead to missing international flights. If this is the only season possible for you, then we recommend treks in drier parts of the country such as Upper Mustang or Upper Dolpo. We can also suggest other activities such as white water rafting or visiting the National Parks at Chitwan or Bardia.

Autumn: September – November

With very similar conditions to spring, the autumn season begins in mid-September and runs to mid-December, and is also ideal for trekking. This is a long window of good visibility and so there are a wide variety of trekking options available.

This time of year is also known for its festivals, especially the Dashain festival/Tihar festival and Chhad festival. There are also long national holidays so many people return to their villages to see family, making rural Nepal even more vibrant than normal. There is little rain and the skies are mostly clear with warm weather. This does mean that the trekking routes can be quite crowded in the most popular areas so we advise booking early to avoid the disappointment of full tea houses.

The less popular trekking regions such as Manaslu, Tsum Valley, Upper Dolpo, Mustang, and Naar Phu are great alternatives for those who want to avoid the crowds at this busy time.

Winter: December – February

December to February is the winter season in Nepal. Trekking at this time is not ideal and we advise against anything that goes into thin air as snowfall is common and temperatures can be extremely low.

Trips that can be done in winter include trekking in the hills around Kathmandu, Ghorepani, Poon Hill, Nagarkot, Chitwan National Park, Bardia National Park, or experiencing a homestay in one of the local villages. The biggest positive of this time of year is the excellent sunsets and sunrises which can often be enjoyed in rural areas.

There is something for everyone at any time of year in Nepal and the team at Peace Nepal Treks is happy to advise the most suitable for your needs.

Great trekking company! Peace Nepal treks is a great company for trekking in the Nepali Himalayas. In Kathmandu, there are many trekking agencies all offering many things and I can comfortably recommend Peace Nepal Treks as the very best of them. I have been twice with Peace Nepal Treks on extended camping trips into remote and lesser trodden trips into the mountains and my sister has been with Nir Lama on a peak climbing expedition to Mera Peak all of which have been wonderful positive experie ... + See more nces. And from what comparisons I have the prices of peace Nepal treks are very good. I could write endless praises for their organizing of every detail of the trips from transport, flexibility, time in Kathmandu, environmental management, sleeping arrangements, and food. They are all great! But what is the real source of all the great small details is that peace Nepal treks are a great family business, run and owned by kind and honest people that really want the best for everyone and are good at making that happen.

I went trekking with friends to Mera peak in October 2022. Nir Lama arranged our stay in Katmandu in a nice hotel in a good area. We flew to Lukla airport with our mountain guides - FURI SHERPA - and also with his companion RAZU TAMANG. All the way up to Mera peak we enjoyed beautiful views, we slept in lodges, and we spent a good time together with our guides, who were very nice and provided help whenever we needed it. Fresh air, friendly people, and amazing villages we passed by. Ginger lemon ... + See more honey tea is harmful and healthy. Although we did not reach the summit, we were able to go to the high camp and enjoyed nice views from there. I was very happy during the whole expedition and I definitely recommend contacting Peace Nepal Treks because everything went well: organization and friendliness from NIR LAMA, FURI SHERPA, and RAZU TAMANG. Nepal is a wonderful country and I would like to do another trekking expedition with Peace Nepal Treks. José Maria Sardinha ... - See less

Very good company, always doing their best to make your trip an enjoyable one. Liked the way they handled my trek to the Everest base camp in the year 2016 and I went back to them again for Mera Peak Climb in May 2017. Successfully completed both trips with memorable experiences. Will engage them again for future trips in Nepal. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking for a trekking company. ... + See more ... - See less
