The route of trekking and the summit
Mera peak climbing is a beautiful climbing experience that takes you to the Khumbu region of Nepal. After a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the climb follows a separate path to Mera Base Camp. There is a direct route to the base camp via Zatrwa La pass, but we take a longer way that would help us acclimatize well before the ascent. We head south from Lukla to enter into the Hinku valley. The path is very charismatic with stunning views of mountains, valleys, glaciers and mountainous terrain on sight. Later, the trail returns to Zatrwa La pass. Then we cross the pass at an elevation of 4600 meters and head towards the Mera Base Camp. From the base camp, we follow the instructions of our climbing leader and head towards the summit of the Mera peak. It’s truly an inspiring journey to the top.
How difficult is Mera Peak climbing?
Mera peak climbing is one of the strenuous climbing peaks in the Everest region of Nepal. Popular with the tag of – the highest trekking peak, Mera peak is not a joke! Though non-technical, it takes us above 5000 meters, which is a very high altitude where nothing can survive. The temperature is cold, and the weather is unpredictable. Likewise, the thinness in the air makes us hard to climb. It’s essential to acclimate your body well before ascending the peak. On the off chance your body can’t adjust to the thin air, it might turn fatal.
Even though Mera peak is one of the toughest climbing peaks, a regular practice, proper acclimatization, good body stamina, and the will power to climb up is the key to a successful ascent. It takes climbing up via a harsh and challenging topographical condition. Hence a proper preparation for the climb is essential. To acclimatize yourself in the high altitude, we will trek from Lukla to Khare and rest a day at Khare. Then, we travel to Mera Base Camp and summit the peak on the next day. Additionally, Heaven Himalaya’s prepared Sherpa guide will furnish us with an essential mountaineering preparation before the actual climbing of the Mera Peak.
Best time to climb Mera Peak
Generally, late April to May and Late September to November is recommended for Mera Peak climbing. Moreover, for the best climbing experience, make sure that you climb the peak in May or October. Climbing up the summit in winter may cause you to deal with colder conditions. Many don’t prefer cold weather, and it is difficult to walk in the thick snow.

Best Days of My Life
I and my colleagues visited Nepal back in the year 2017. I was not an experienced hiker but anyway chose Annapurna Base Camp Trek with a trekking agency in Nepal. It was like a challenge for me to trek to the 4000 m altitude, but Mr. Ram helped us in every way possible. He was there from the start of our trekking journey in Pokhara to our end days in Kathmandu. Ram kept pushing me forward and even waited for me to catch the other team. He guided me from choosing plain food to meditating. Although I was a victim of altitude sickness and couldn't enjoy the trek to the fullest, I am very grateful to have chosen him.
Annapurna Base Camp is a beautiful place in the Himalayas. The Gurung Village, Poonhill, Pokhara every place was just outstanding.
I have now developed a hiking attitude, and I have been training for the EBC trek now. I can't wait to visit the Himalayas again.
Perfectly Organized Upper Mustang Trek
All thanks to Mr. Ram for organizing the Upper Mustang, trekking perfectly from beginning to end. I, along with my bunch of friends, had a delightful experience with the Heaven Himalaya team. For us, it is the best trekking agency in Nepal. The guides and porters were very flexible and took care of everything around us.
I recommend everyone to try these young guys to go hiking in Nepal.
Wonderful Trekking Experience
My wife and I visited Upper Mustang and were lucky to have chosen Heaven Himalaya. We had a wonderful experience trekking in Upper Mustang. As soon as we landed in TIA, we were welcomed by Ram. He was very easy and responsive to work with. He explained all the queries we had and gave a brief description of the tour. As we were watching videos and reading blogs about Upper Mustang, we had a lot of expectations about the place and the trekking agency we were working with. We had a private 18-day tour with a porter. And to be honest, we found everything beyond our expectations. The hills, mountains, monasteries were all amazing, especially Lo Manthang is a great place to visit. Our guide was also equally supportive and friendly. The team made our trek more enjoyable. While writing this, it reminded me of the days we had on the trails. Thank You again for the wonderful experience. Best wishes to Jason and Esha. We will definitely love to return and probably do the Everest base camp Trek this time.
Trip of a lifetime- Annapurna Circuit Trek
Heaven Himalaya Team offers a magnificently arranged trekking involvement in Nepal. Ramhari answered instantly to all my messages. They make a solid effort to make your vacation in Nepal an extraordinary one and genuinely went well beyond my desires.
I couldn't remember the name of the guide but my boy, you were more than amazing. I wish you good luck in the days to come.
Everything from pickup to trekking in the mountains was very professional with excellent service.
So, I strongly suggest everyone and will trek with Heaven Himalaya again in the future.
Glorious Experience in EBC Trek
We did an EBC trek with Ram and his team back in April 2019, and it was a glorious experience. Ram is a very knowledgeable, resourceful, and very helpful guide. 2 of us got unwell during the trek, and he was very prompt and took care of us in any way that was available.
We enjoyed our chat and his sense of humor along the trail and at the teahouses. He even got us a special breakfast and pickle salad at Namche Bazaar and always fulfilled the strange request with our dietary needs. EBC trek is amazing. With Ram, it is even more spectacular. Thanks for the amazing trip. Looking forward to island peak climb in the future.
