Overview And Highlights

Mera Peak Climbing is an arduous but rewarding trek that leads to the summit of Mera Peak, at 6,470 meters (21,190 feet) the highest mountain in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The views from the top are nothing short of spectacular, with panoramic vistas of some of the world’s most famous peaks including Everest, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu.

The Mera Peak Climbing route begins at the village of Lukla, located in the Khumbu Valley. After a brief trek up the Dudh Kosi Valley, the trail reaches the village of Namche Bazaar, home to the largest community of Sherpas in Nepal. From here, the route ascends to the Mera La Pass at 5,415 meters (17,769 feet), before making the final push to the summit.

The Mera Peak Climbing route is considered a moderate to difficult trek, with a high degree of physical fitness required. The altitude can also be challenging, so it is important to take adequate time to acclimatize in the weeks leading up to the trek. A Mera Peak Climbing permit is required and can be obtained through the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).

Best Time to Climb Mera Peak

Planning and executing the high passes expedition in Nepal, the best time is during Spring and Autumn when the climate and temperature are stable and favorable for all the trekkers.

During these seasons, there are fewer chances of snowfall and rainfall which can make the trek even more difficult. So, it is always advised to execute the trek during the Spring (March to May) or Autumn (September to November) season.

Furthermore, during the Spring season, you can witness the clear and majestic view of the Mountains.

Permits Required for Mera Peak Climbing

To climb Mera Peak, you would require a permit for which you have to pay a certain amount to the Nepal Mountaineering Association. However, the cost of the permit differs as per the season.

During the Spring season, the cost rises up to USD250 while the price declines up to USD125 during the Autumn season. Moreover, during the off-season, Winter, and summer seasons, the cost for the permit is only USD70.

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 the rural areas.

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