Climbing Nepal MeraPeak with mountain madness expedition

Mera Peak Expedition

Less than 3 weeks to Explore Remote Villages and Valleys with an Easy Ascent Over 21,000 feet / 6400 meters and a Helicopter Out

Fol­low the least trod­den route of the Ever­est region via the incred­i­ble Hinku Val­ley. This beau­ti­ful climb will take you to the 21,247 foot / 6476 meter Himalayan sum­mit of Mera Peak. The ascent is over easy glac­i­er ter­rain and is suit­able for begin­ner climbers with no expe­ri­ence — you’ll learn every­thing you need to know on the climb. From this sum­mit, you will see the six high­est peaks in the world spread out before you. This trip is sure to thrill aspir­ing climbers! 

On the approach, you will trek over 15,000+ foot pass­es and wind your way through rhodo­den­dron and bam­boo forests before head­ing up into the alpine zone of rock and glac­i­ers. Along the way you may vis­it the local Bud­dhist monks chant­i­ng in the rocky perch of the region’s only monastery. You’ll have the chance to take pic­tures of the beau­ti­ful Hinku Val­ley by day and play live­ly card games with the porters by night.

The perfect first climb in the Himalayas along with Island Peak

The trip begins in Kath­man­du with a city tour. Here you will vis­it sev­er­al impor­tant Bud­dhist and Hin­du sites, evade the mon­key patrols, and enjoy some fine Nepali din­ing. From there you will trav­el to the vil­lage of Luk­la before head­ing into the mountains.

While the ascent can be con­sid­ered easy in terms of ter­rain and glac­i­er trav­el involved, it does require par­tic­i­pants to be fit. Basic moun­taineer­ing skills use­ful but not required. A climb of Mount Bak­er in the Wash­ing­ton Cas­cades would be excel­lent preparation.
