Overview

"Join us on an unforgettable trip to Mera Peak – one of the ‘most popular trekking peaks’ in Nepal. Conveniently located in the Barun region, the climb can be easily combined with a trekking tour of the region."

Mera Peak (6654m) lies within the Everest Region and is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The summit offers a stunning vista of five 8000m peaks: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Several other beautiful peaks and mountains can also be viewed from the summit – of course, weather permitting.

The route from the north is suitable even for climbers with less experience. However, it involves traversing a glacier at high altitude. The western ascent as well as the south face is more difficult and suitable for experienced climbers. Due to climate change, the conditions on the summit block have become more difficult over the years. Nevertheless, the normal route is still reasonably straightforward with minimal technical difficulties (F/PD). The main obstacle is the proper acclimatization to the altitude. You can rely on us to carefully design the schedule for an optimal acclimatization. Though Mera Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal, it would also be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time given a sufficient level of physical fitness. Ken hill walkers with some experience using crampons and ice-axe are well suited for this adventure. We are happy to offer you advice if you have any doubts or require any tips for your preparations.

Snowy Horizon offers you a full board package including the climbing permit from the NMA and all other necessary logistics from arrival in Kathmandu up to your departure. We organize your accommodation in Kathmandu as well as throughout your trek, our cooks freshly prepare you nutritious meals throughout the climbing period and experienced and professional trekking and climbing guides accompany you on the trek as well as the climb. In addition, we can organize any sightseeing in and around Kathmandu. Upon your request, we can also offer only base camp service (including the climbing permit) where the climber may arrange all required logistics for any part of the climb above base camp.

The package can be flexibly adjusted to your requirements. Feel free to contact us any time for suggestions and advice. We’d be happy to take you on this adventure.

It all depends on the area with most of the trekking routeshaving local VHF Phones; increasingly more places get mobile coverage of varied capacity; in remote communication is not available or very limited so the only option would be a satellite phone.
