Mera Peak Climb one of most easiest and straight-forward climbs in all Himalayan trekking peaks, where we have set the grade as F, which means Facial / Easy the word comes from French and Swiss Alpine Climbing Classification Systems as used world-wide.

 

Although a peak of less technical climb, where adventurer and climber should in good physical shape with sound health as well equipped related to Mera Peak climb, which leads you to a long uphill walk in ice and snow to reach its summit top, one of the highest trekking peaks of Nepal Himalaya. Mera Peak Climb begins from busy Sherpa town at Lukla after reaching with a flight from Kathmandu, and then heading towards deep alpine woodland away from villages and human settlement in complete wilderness of mountains and green valley with snow and ice.

 

Walk leads to an adventure over rocky ridges of Naulekh or Kalo Himal crossing Zatwar-la pass to reach remote and isolated corners of Khumbu around Inkhu valley within green woodland which soon fades to rocks and moraine at Mera Peak base camp. Truly an amazing spot away from main flow of trekkers, where you will be in the harmony of pristine natural surroundings, although the walk is quite tough due to least visited areas but worth the hard treks to Mera Peak base camp.

 

After enough rest days and preparation where climb leads from base and high camp following our expert team of guide to reach at the high summit top of Mera Peak offers incredible panorama of mountains as far to Makalu, Baruntse to Kanchenjunga in the east with Everest towards North direction. Feeling high, after a successful feat on Mera Peak Climb, then return back to Lukla on the same scenic route for flight to Kathmandu, after a wonderful experience and adventure on Mera Peak Climb.

After four hours walking we descend steeply through rhododendron forest finally get to our lunch place after another hour. Look out for the huge erosion scar in the valley above Hinku river. This was happened on September 3rd 1998 when a glacial lake called Sabai Tsho further up the valley above Tagnag breached its moraine dam producing a devastating Glacial Lake Outburst Flood (“GLOF”) that surged down the Hinku valley.

It takes two and a half hours to walk to the grassy area at Dig Kharka then the trail climbs up a hill and takes a further hour to Khare. There are several lodges in Khare with good camping grounds.

Equipment List

Correct Clothing & Equipment are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your travel.


Climbing Gear List:

  • Alpine Climbing Harness: Alpine Climbing Harness should be light and simple in design, easy to put on and take off with gloves on, with positively foolproof locking features.
  • Crampons: Crampons must fit boots perfectly; steel crampons with anti-balling and ability to toe point positively and safely into ice.
  • Ice axe: Ice axe should be versatile light general purpose ice climbing axe not too aggressive.
  • Ascender: Ascender or Jamar, a mechanical device used for ascending on a rope; must be suitable to be used with gloves or mittens.
  • Multi-LED Head Lamp: Multi-LED Head Lamp and spare batteries are essential items, we do not recommend single bulb lights due to its low reliability and a single point of failure.
  • Karabiners: Minimum 2 locking carabineers, 1 large and 1 small and 4 regular.
  • Rappel device: Figure 8, ACT or similar; be familiar with Munter Hitch as it may safe your life if you loose your Rappel device and you will at some stage
  • Ski poles: Very handy for the approach; adjustable types are the best and are recommended type
  • Slings: One 3m (10ft) and three 2m (6ft).
  • Masks, hoses, and regulators: Good quality for your safety.
  • Altimeter :
  • Climbing helmet: Climbing helmet is essential safety gear for crossing areas under rocks and ice cliffs; light weight is an essential feature


Footwear:
Running Shoes: 1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days. Sandals or flip flops for camp.


Light Hiking Boots:
 1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent.


Hiking Gaiters:
 1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.


Wool Socks:
 3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots.


Liner Socks:
 3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.


Clothing: 

Lightweight Long Underwear: 2 pair, tops and bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.


Light Trekking Pants:
 Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts.


T-Shirts:
 Lightweight crew style T-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material.

Woolen or thick cotton long arm shirt – can double as a light jacket when required and also protects arms and neck because of the collar…good to wear in the evenings.

Thin woolen jumper / sweater can be reassuring and comfortable at nights in the lodges.


Bandana:
 Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks.


Synthetic/Soft Shell Jacket:
 A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.


Insulted Down-Jacket:
 Down jacket need for this depends on the season and where you are going.


Hard Shell Jacket With Hood:
 We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain.


Hard Shall Pants:
 Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.


Handwear:

Fleece/Soft Shell Gloves: 1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene.


Shell Gloves With Insulation:
 1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient.


Headwear:

Headlamp With Spare Batteries: A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries and bulbs!


Sun Hat:
 The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.


Neck Gaiter Or Buff:
 Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.


Glacier Glasses:
 100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.


Personal Equipment:

Sleeping Bag: Sleeping bag and liner – a 3 or 4 season bag is recommended, depending on your trek.


Backpack:
 A day pack big enough to carry water bottles, camera, lunch and extra clothing. 3,000cu.in. max

Sunscreen:
 SPF 30 or better, 2 small tubes. Make sure that the sun screen is not older than 6 months. Sunscreen older than six months loses half of its SPF rating.


Hand/Foot Warmers (Optional):
 Recommended if you easily get cold hands and feet 1-3 pairs.

 

Lip Screen: SPF 30 or better, at least 2 sticks. Not older than 6 months.


Traveling:
Large Duffle Bag With Travel Locks & Tags: 1 for transporting and storing gear. These bags are needed to transport your clothing. (Suitcases are not suitable).


Plastic Bags (5):
