Mera Peak Climbing is an ideal option for the trekking & climber freaks who want to discover the pristine beauty of the Himalayas in Nepal. Located in the Hinku valley of northern Nepal, Mera Peak (6,461m) is the highest trekking peak in the world which consists of three summits Mera South, Mera North, and Mera Centra. The main highlights of this trek are a hike to base camp and summit itself and Mera Peak provides the best view of mountains including Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga in the Far East. Climbing Mera Peak is a tough challenge. The level of oxygen is less than half of what it is at sea level, so if you're a beginner or don't have previous trekking experience in high altitude, we don't recommend this trek for you. We will stay in the full-supported tented camp and training will be given by our mountain experts and guides before you go for the adventure. During this trek, you'll see the snow-covered Himalayas blessed with serene and fascinating view creates a unique charm that remains stored in the minds of the tourists forever. Months of March to May & Sep to Dec are the perfect months for this adventure.

Mera Peak Climbing adventure commences with the exhilarating flight to Lukla flight from Kathmandu with great Himalayan views. Then we follow the trail to the wilderness of the Khumbu region to Zatar La pass which is a typical route to Mera Peak. This trail takes you through pristine bamboo, rhododendron forest and several Nepali villages where you get to know about their culture, history, cuisines, and lifestyle. Then we climb up to Mera base camp (5,300m) and finally Mera Peak at 6,661m. After enjoying the best view at the Mera summit, we descend back via Khare to Lukla and fly to Kathmandu.

Trek Highlights

  • Beautiful lakes and waterfalls
  • Majestic mountains: Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Kangchenjunga
  • Mera Peak, the highest climbing peak of Nepal
  • Nepali culture and tradition
  • Mera base camp and great views
  • Thrilling flight to Lukla



The food in the teahouse will be basic, simple local and organic food that is made from locally produced products. You can choose your food preferences from the food menu available at the teahouse or camp. You can enjoy a variety of food items during your stay in Kathmandu. The food items in the trek include ethnic cuisines foods as well as western-style meals such as Sherpa stew, fresh vegetable items, handmade bread items, , rara noodles, different soups, spaghetti, pizza, rice items, eggs, potatoes items, apple pie, Dal Bhat, etc. We recommend you to have black tea, lemon tea, hot chocolates, ginger tea, and garlic soup to stay away from the high-elevation problem. In high-elevation, there won't be any teahouse to provide you a food, so we'll provide you a experienced kitchen crew who'll prepare the best and delicious food for you.


In lower altitude guesthouses or teahouses are available run by local people who offer the standard comfort and services. Most rooms have twin beds, blanket, pillow with showers available and bathroom on a sharing basis and other basic facilities. As you trek to the higher altitudes, you will find that most of the time your accommodation will include tea-houses and local lodges managed by the residents and camps.  One thing, you need to keep in mind that single rooms might not be available easily in higher altitudes as in Kathmandu valley or lower elevations. We'll also stay in camps/tents for few days.

We did the Mera Peak trek with Nature Explore in November - it was a fantastic trip which I’d definitely recommend!

It was very well organised with Dinesh meeting us at the airport on arrival and answering all of our questions very quickly by email before we arrived.

We had a day in Kathmandu before travelling by jeep to the start of the trek at Phaplu. We walked up the lower route which was good to acclimatise and see lots of Nepalese villages on the way. We also visited a very interesting monastery.


Fantastic trek - Mera Peak

The second half of the trek was walking up to Khare at 5,000m where we spent two nights to acclimatise and practice our rope skills. We also hired boots, crampons and extra warm kit here at a very reasonable price.

The final stage was walking up to high camp at 5,800m where we camped and were cooked really nice food for dinner (in very cold weather!). We then set out at around 2am to walk to the summit arriving at 7.30am. We walked slowly and had a great climbing guide based at Khare who knew the route exactly.

An excellent trip which was organised very well. We also had a really nice and knowledgable guide Lila and porter Subash. A great team and company to do Mera Peak with! Thanks all for a great and memorable trip. Jo

Have used Dinesh before on other treks - great guy! Spent just over two weeks round trip from Kathmandu to summit Mera Peak, and have nothing but wholehearted thanks for the way I was looked after. Highly professional and very friendly. Dinesh and his business partner have set up their own company (Nature Explore) after both working as guides for other organisations, and provide clients with a fantastic level of service and care. A fully Nepalese owned venture that provides sterling customer satisfaction whilst also making sure local porters/lodge owners etc get treated fairly. Fantastic!

Trek to (and successful summit of) Mera Peak
