Mera Peak Expedition

Mera Peak Expedition gives you the chance to climb a Himalayan peak while following a non technical route to the summit.

Our expedition to Mera Peak in November 2017 led by Almas Khan is now guaranteed to run and there is currently availability, please get in contact soon if you like to join this group.

Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal at over 6,400m. The view from the summit is one of the finest in the Himalaya with five 8,000m peaks visible: Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga.

Our itinerary has been carefully designed to allow for gradual acclimatisation. We believe that by using this itinerary you will have a higher chance of safely summiting Mera Peak and enjoying the experience. As a safety precaution we bring a portable altitude chamber, an oxymeter and a satellite phone.

This expedition would be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time or keen hill walkers with some previous experience of using crampons and ice axe. You can learn these basic mountaineering skills by joining our annual Chamonix training weekend.

Trip Grade Challenging

Trip Grade Challenging

Suitability: a good choice for regular, long distance hill walkers. A very high level of fitness would be required for our toughest treks and expeditions. Previous trekking experience at high altitude is preferable although not mandatory given sufficient experience, preparation and training. These trips may involve mountaineering and glacial travel.

1) Walking times: average 7 to 9 hours walking per day (with several longer days up to 15 hours) for up to 28 days with some rest days included.

2) Altitude: up to 6,500m.

3) Terrain: you will experience a wide variety of mountain terrain from reasonable trails to crossing technical mountaineering passes and climbing to summits sometimes including use of fixed ropes.

4) Remoteness:  usually in more remote areas and likely to be a long distance from nearest road and facilities available in a city.
