- Proven programme of acclimatisation on trek to base camp

- Climb Nepal`s highest trekking peak
Mera Peak at 6476 metres, is one of Nepal's highest trekking peaks and its summit panorama takes in 5 of the world's 8000 metre peaks - Kangchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest and Cho Oyu. This ultimate Himalayan trekking and climbing holiday begins with a short and exciting flight to the mountain airstrip at Lukla and continues through the high and lovely Hinku Valley. Here, our tried and tested program of acclimatisation contributes to an unrivalled success rate on climbing Mera peak. Although physically very demanding on account of the altitude, the climb on Mera Peak is not technically difficult, ascending snow slopes that rarely exceed 30 degrees. Viewed from the mountain's upper slopes, the sunrise on Everest and Kangchenjunga is truly unforgettable. Mera Peak is the perfect choice for fit and keen hillwalkers looking to take part in a real Himalayan climbing expedition.

Is this holiday for you?
This Nepal climbing holiday offers a great variety of trekking conditions. There is a taste of the popular Everest Trail at Lukla, with its lodges and throngs of trekkers. Then, on the first few days of the trek, between Lukla and Gondishung, there are splendid forests and a great variety of scenery. Beyond Gondishung there is a wild, alpine environment, with a number of small summer grazing camps. Trekking groups entering the Hinku Valley have to be self-sufficient and the team of Sherpas and porters need to be sufficiently experienced and well-equipped for the high altitude trekking that this trip involves. Some of our porter team will have walked in with our equipment from Kathmandu, and some will be hired by the Sirdar in Lukla. The paths are relatively good for most of the route up to our basecamp at Khare, and offer relatively easy underfoot conditions. The trek is given the DEMANDING grade on account of the height of the peak and the fact that there are a couple of long days trekking. The climbing grade of EASY reflects the degree of technical difficulty and is not intended to suggest that an ascent of Mera Peak is without considerable effort.
