At an impressive 6,476m (21,247’) Mera Peak is one for the more experienced climbers. Located on the edge of the famous Khumbu region, steeped in mountaineering history, Mera Peak was first climbed in 1953 by Jimmy Roberts. At Earth’s Edge, we like to take the less travelled route to Mera Peak Base Camp. This means that we experience this stunning peak with fewer people, and with the best chance
Mera Peak is straightforward technically, the main challenges being proper acclimatisation, weather and snow conditions. It is important to remember that although this is a trekking peak, we do hire snow gear like crampons. Poor snow conditions can make the summit day very challenging but the view from the summit is one of the best in all the Himalayas.
On a clear day, hundreds of giant peaks can be seen including five of the world’s six highest peaks, Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kangchenjunga. In case of poor conditions on summit day, we have a spare summit day built into this trip. This allows us to make a judgement about which day will give us the best chance of summitting.
