Mera Peak Overview

Mera Peak 6476m is a mountain in the Mahalangur section, Barun sub-section of the Himalaya and administratively in Nepal’s Sagarmatha Zone, Solukhumbu District and claimed to be the highest trekking peak in Nepal. From the summit, five 8,000m peaks are visible: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga, as well as many other Himalayan peaks.

Mera Peak climbing Details

Mera Peak Climbing is acclaimed as a favored climbing adventure of Everest region in Solukhumbu district. In the Everest region of Nepal, there are more than 300 mountains out of a total of 600, creating a majestic and towering landscape. This region has been a paradise for mountaineers for over 70 years. It boasts four of the world's highest peaks, each exceeding 8000 meters in elevation: Mt. Everest (8849m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m), Mt. Makalu (8481m) and Mt. Lhotse (8516m). In addition to these colossal giants, there are also smaller peaks that surround charming Sherpa villages.

One such peak is Mera Peak, standing at an impressive 6476 meters in the vicinity of Everest. Climbing Mera Peak has become a highly sought-after adventure in Nepal. It is classified as the one highest trekking peak amongst 27 trekking peaks by the Nepal Mountaineering Association, making it accessible to beginner climbers. This peak has been beloved by mountaineers for many decades, with the first successful ascent achieved by a French expedition led by Jean Franco on May 20, 1953. Since then, it has remained a renowned destination for climbers.

Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal is considered a moderately challenging climb. Its slopes feature manageable trails, and the overall route is mostly non-technical, with a few sections requiring fixed ropes. The final stretch just before the summit involves a steep ascent across a snow dome, where you'll need an ascender or jumar on a fixed rope. However, the majority of the climbing sections are of moderate difficulty. Like other peak climbs in the Everest region, ascending Mera Peak rewards you with breathtaking panoramic views of the Everest landscape. The view from the summit is truly awe-inspiring.

Climbing Route of Mera Peak

Mera Peak Climbing Route begins with a classic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and involves several days of trekking through high mountain passes before reaching the high camp. The actual climb to Mera Peak starts from the High Camp and culminates at the summit. Unlike the Everest Base Camp Trek, the journey to the Mera Peak base camp involves a relatively rapid ascent. Along the way, you'll pass through small hamlets scattered along the trail.

The Mera Peak Trekking starts southeast from Lukla, gradually ascending to Chutang, situated at an elevation of 3020 meters. From Chutang, you'll continue through dense alpine forests and take a sharp turn southward. After this, the trail leads to Zartwa La Pass at 4610 meters, marking the border of Makalu Barun National Park. Descending steeply from the pass for about two hours, you'll reach Thuli Kharka, a small shepherd's settlement with only a few houses.

The stretch from Thuli Kharka follows rocky terrain as you ascend toward Tashing Dingma at 4010 meters, which is enclosed by rocks. The trail then meets the Inkhu River at Tashing Ognma, with the Inkhu River originating from Mera Peak and later merging with the Dudh Koshi River. Continuing on, you'll make your way to Mosom Kharka, Gondhishung, and eventually reach Kothe at an elevation of 4182 meters. Along this traverse, you'll occasionally catch glimpses of Mera Peak. The journey to Mera Peak continues along this river, passing through villages such as Tagna, Dig Kharka, Khare Camp, and Mera La before commencing the actual climb to the summit.

Mera Peak Climbing Duration

The roundtrip distance of Mera Peak Climbing is about 75 kilometers which starts and ends at Lukla. Aside from this, the aerial distance from Kathmandu to Lukla is about 135 kilometers. You will take a flight to get to Lukla and back to Kathmandu. The flight duration is 35 minutes one way. The standard Mera Peak Climbing itinerary is 15 days. 

Within this timeframe, you will walk for an average distance of about 7-8 kilometers each day. Also, you will climb for 2 days from Khare to High Camp and High Camp to Mera Summit.  The duration of trekking each day will differ based on prior experience, elevation gain and the terrain of the area. Below provided table provides deep insight into time and distance of Mera Peak Climb.

Day Source/ Destination Distance Duration
3 Lukla to Chutanga 4.3 kilometers 4 Hrs.
4 Chutanga to Chhutrabu 4.5 kilometers 7 Hrs
5 Chhetrabu to Kothe 6.5 kilometers 5-6 Hrs

Important Note: The altitude level of Zartwa La Pass makes it prone to heavy snowfall in the winter (Nov-March).

Taking the route via these villages will lengthen the trekking duration by a few more days.
