Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal 2024 Overview

When is the best time to climb Mera Peak in Nepal?

In order to climb Mera safely you need stable weather and for it to be dry times is more easy to climb. Even if it is warm, strong winds can make climbing very dangerous. Also, any rainfall at this altitude falls as snow, and breaking tracks in this doubles the difficulty of the climb.
          To give yourself the best chance of avoiding these problems, we recommend climbing between October and November or between March and end of May. Both these periods generally bring long periods of stable weather and, although the temperatures at the top are still incredibly cold, it is bearable.

Getting there & away:

This trip starts and ends in Lukla, the gateway to the Khumbu region. Numerous flights are made daily from Kathmandu, in small fixed-wing airplanes, taking around 30/35 minutes flight to Lukla However, bad weather frequently closes the airport, so it’s wise to prepare for delays if flying to Lukla. The suggested itinerary includes a contingency day.
It’s also possible to trek to Lukla (rather than fly) from outside Kathmandu, the “pioneers’ route” that connects to the trailer at Jiri and passes beneath Lukla. However, this isn’t necessarily recommended as an addition to a long trip such as climbing Mera Peak, unless you want a serious adventure, as it lengthens the expedition by about a week.

Accommodation & food

This is a camping trek (with the exception of Lukla). You will be sleeping in everything from forests to meadows to high snowy camps. Nutritious and energizing food will be prepared in a camp kitchen.


As a trekking peak, climbing Mera Peak requires a cheaper climbing permit (US$70-250, depending on the season), rather than the pricey expedition permit required for peaks about 7,000 m. As part of this trek also passes through the Sagarmatha National Park, a permit for here is also required. Nepal Planet Treks and expeditions will organize these permits for you.

However, it does demand a good level of physical fitness and some basic climbing techniques. If you have prior trekking or climbing experience and are up for a moderate challenge, Mera Peak can be a suitable choice.

Altitude Considerations: Mera Peak is a high-altitude trek, and altitude sickness can be a potential risk. Adequate acclimatization and proper trekking practices are essential to minimize the chances of altitude-related issues. If you have experience with high-altitude trekking and are aware of the risks and precautions, you can make an informed decision.

Crowds and Serenity: Although Mera Peak is popular, it generally receives fewer crowds compared to other peaks like Everest or Annapurna. If you prefer a more serene and less crowded trekking experience, Mera Peak can be a good option.
