Mera Peak at 6,476 meters (21,247 feet), the highest trekking peak in Nepal, is a great option for enthusiastic trekkers with climbing skills. The view from Mera Peak is spectacular: Once you reach the summit, you will be rewarded with panoramic vistas of the Himalayan Mountains: Cho Oyu (8,188m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,485m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m) and Mount Everest (8,848m) are just a few examples. For this climb, you need mountaineering skills and a strong willpower.
Prior altitude experience
Mera Peak is not suitable for mountaineering beginners. Before going to extreme elevations, you need to know how your body reacts at 5,000 m at least. Of course, you should have climbing skills as well. To prepare for this challenge, practice as much as you can with hiking, trekking and multi-day trips at higher altitudes. This will help you prepare for lower oxygen levels while you find out how your body reacts to the challenge. During your training and preparation, you can also test equipment and clothes, so you can find out what suits you best. Equipped with this knowledge and skills, you can consider the Mera Peak challenge.
Climbing Mera Peak requires physical and mental fitness. Start training a few months in advance. The trek to Khare 4,950m/ 16,240 feet and Mera Peak Base Camp 5,350m/ 17,552 feet is long and only suitable for experienced trekkers. Climbing Mera Peak is challenging. During your training sessions in the mountains, wear your (packed) backpack to simulate the real experience. 3 to 6 hours of hiking up and downhill should be part of your regular routine. Strength and endurance training are essential to be able to trek/climb for several days in a row.
Personal hygiene and health management
On your Mera Peak adventure, you will be in a remote area, far from medical help. Please bring your medical kit, antibiotics and any other medications you might need. During the journey, it is important to keep your hands, feet and body clean and dry to avoid infections. Also, remember to use hand sanitizer whenever possible.
Connect with the locals
Before reaching the summit, the trek will take you through traditional villages. The Sherpa, known for their incredible climbing abilities, will welcome you there with open arms and serve you hot beverages and traditional Nepali cuisine. Despite the lack of wealth in this area, their service is kind and welcoming. The exchange with local communities will enrich your experience and make your adventure authentic and unforgettable. All along the way, prayer wheels and prayer flags can be seen, reflecting the fascinating Buddhist culture.
Do I need a visa?
Yes. To enter Nepal, you need a visa. You can either request a visa at the Nepalese Embassy in your home country or you can get a visa on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. Your entire stay is calculated from the day you arrive in Nepal. Except for Chinese and India, you will be charged around USD 40 for a 30-day tourist visa. Tourists with Indian or Chinese passports are not required to obtain a visa. Please note that visa fees and regulations may change any time. For up to date information, do not hesitate to contact us.
What is the accommodation like?
During the trekking part of your trip, you will sleep in tea houses. The rooms usually have two or three single beds. Blankets and cushions are provided. If you are lucky, you might get a room with a private bathroom, but most of the time, the bathrooms are shared. At Mera Peak Base Camp, you will sleep in tents. That means, you must feel at ease sleeping “outside” in raw nature. Keep in mind that the weather can be unstable and change from warm to windy, snowy or freezing cold. Make sure you are prepared for any circumstances.
When is the best time for climbing Mera Peak?
Nepal, like many other countries, has four seasons: spring, summer (monsoon or rainy season), autumn and winter. Autumn and spring are the two main seasons for Mera Peak Climbing. During these seasons, the weather conditions are usually stable and dry with a moderate climate. Spring and autumn are great for trekking/climbing in the Everest region, with clear views of the mountains. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 15- 20 degrees Celsius, while temperatures at night can fall to minus 8/12 degrees Celsius. In spring, thousands of flowers and plants bloom, making trekking in Nepal a wonderful experience.
What is the best itinerary?
It is very important to ensure your schedule includes days for acclimatization and rest. While choosing a package with fewer days may save you money, it may put your safety at risk. To have peace of mind, include some extra days in your planning, in case of bad weather or delays. With a tailored package, you can adapt your trip to your schedule and needs. Just let us know your requirements – we will do our best to provide the best package for you. The cost of climbing Mera Peak depends on several factors, for example duration of the trip and level of service.
What equipment do I need for Mera Peak Climbing?
Nature is unpredictable. We wish we could, but unfortunately, we cannot promise stable weather. Having said that, some seasons are better for climbing than others. Therefore, it's very important that you bring the right equipment and clothes. Your clothes must keep you warm and dry in extremely cold temperatures and humid conditions. Bring both mountaineering and trekking boots with you. Before the trip, practice with these shoes. Because mountaineering boots employ different muscles than trekking boots, extra training with mountaineering boots should not be neglected. Besides that, you need good quality climbing equipment like ice axe and crampons. To find the perfect gear for you, we recommend to seek expert advice in your home country. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about equipment. If you are in Nepal already and want to rent equipment in a local store, we are always here to assist you. In general, we recommend to get your equipment in your home country, to make sure you get the desired quality. Get ready for a breathtaking adventure to Nepal’s highest trekking peak – and last, but not least, don’t forget your camera to capture those incredibly beautiful moments in the Himalayas.
How much does the permit for Mera Peak cost?
The fees for climbing Mera Peak are set by the Nepal Mountaineering Association and vary according to the season. Because spring is the most popular season, it is the most expensive.

Roughly USD$125 in autumn (September, October, and November). Roughly USD$70 throughout the winter months (December, January, and February).
