Difficulty Level of Mera Peak Climbing Route

Mera Peak is a trekking peak in the remote landscapes of Nepal. The beautiful trekking peak is quite an easy climb compared to other towering mountains. However, there are some challenges that you need to face before arriving at the summit of this spectacular peak.

This peak was previously categorized as F on the Alpine Grading system, generally considered a pretty straightforward climb. However, in recent years, the peak has changed the grading level to Alpine Grade PD. This was mainly done after the recent change in the location of glaciers and incredibly the challenging last section of the climb.

There are tricky sections that you will have to travel through glaciers. Some steep trails require ice axes, fixed ropes, and crampons. The summit's elevation at 6467 m peak is another challenge of this tree-climbing adventure. Climate generally needs to ascend 5-degree angles using a fixed rope and an ascender to arrive at the summit.

For these reasons, it is widely considered the ideal training ground for the eight thousand meters climb.

Difficulty Factors for the Mera Peak

Long Duration

Mera Peak Climb is a long-duration journey that takes around 18 days. Since you will be traveling through high altitudes, you need time to acclimatize and adapt to the changing conditions. The duration also includes acclimatization, exploration, and rest days during the journey.

One good thing about the long-duration adventure is that you can shorten the trekking duration on a single trekking day. This way, you can spread your trekking distance and not put too much pressure on yourself during each trekking day. This can lead to severe stress and strain on your physical and mental being.

On a general level, you will be trekking for around 5 to 6 hours on the foothills of the Himalayas. If you decide to shorten your trekking itinerary, you will have to walk for 7 to 8 hours on a single day.

One pro tip is to always travel in the peak season and avoid the off-season of winter and monsoon as far as possible.

Mera peak summit

Great organization and planning for our trekking. The itinerary was really suitable for us to have more chance of acclimatization and summit successfully. Our guide suman still was amazing and supported us a lot on the trail.

I did my trek to Mera with Exciting Nepal. From asking for information till I arrived in Kathmandu, everything was well arranged and queries were answered promptly via emails by Mr Subash. The trek was pleasant but tough. Guide Singanam was patient and helpful. Mr Subash is very helpful and supportive when i needed assistance in Lukla. Everything was arranged without worries , no question asked ! And I truly appreciate his kindness and understanding . I will strongly recommend my friends to join any treks or holiday with this company. As it will make any holidays a memorable one.
