Mera Peak Climbing is the most popular and highest trekking peak in Nepal. The Mera Peak expedition is taken as the base to prepare before the Everest climb.

Popular among mountaineering beginners, the best time to climb the peak is during the spring and autumn seasons as the weather is clear, the sky is clean and you can get spectacular views of the Himalayas such as Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga.

Our 18-days designed trip to Mera Peak is a beautiful journey and is an excellent choice for the novice and those with moderate experience. Although the peak is at a higher elevation, the climbing and technical skills requirement are not that difficult.
