Rising to 6,476m above sea level, Mera Peak, in Khumbu region of Nepal, is known as the gateway to Everest. From its summit, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views which take in five of the world’s highest mountains - Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and, of course, Everest. But it’s not just the views that give Mera its reputation. This relatively easy mountain is often the first Himalayan climbs that mountaineers tackle, paving the way for greater conquests in the future.
What the adventure involves :
Most of the hand-picked guiding team that they’ve assembled for Royal Nepal Group hail from the Himalayas, meaning that our collective knowledge of these mountains is second to none. This unparalleled experience makes us uniquely placed to introduce others to this range, and Mera Peak is one of the perfect places to do it.
Sometimes referred to as “Nepal’s highest trekking peak” the climb represents little in the way of technical challenges. As long as you’re comfortable operating in high alpine environments, can use crampons and handle an ice axe, the climb shouldn’t present too many difficulties. For this reason, we often recommend Mera Peak as the first step for people who are looking to build up to more serious mountaineering objectives in the future.
Our itinerary on this popular mountain is based on the successful expedition plans implemented multiple times by our leaders. From the moment you land in Kathmandu to the moment you depart, we like to allow 19 days, giving you plenty of time to rest and acclimatize, as well as a generous climbing window.
Our founders’ Nepalese heritage and ability to bridge the gap between Western and Himalayan climbing cultures allows us to run every aspect of our operation smoothly, without fear of misunderstandings. The success of our approach is evident in our founder Nimsdai’s own achievements, including his 100 percent success rate on 8,000m climbs. At Royal Nepal Group, we pride ourselves on our ability to control every aspect of expedition planning - from ferrying-in food to fixing ropes - so we’re never left reliant on third parties.
As well as being highly-trained mountaineers, our guides are skilled mountain rescue operatives, with extensive experience in extracting climbers from difficult situations. We have evacuation plans in place, and helicopters on standby in case of emergencies. Our intimate knowledge of these mountains, and extraction routes, enables us to move faster than anyone should something unexpected happen. Simply put, if you’re climbing in the Himalayas, you could not be in safer hands.
