Mera Peak Climbing Difficulty:

Since Mera Peak is taken as the warm-up destination before going on to the Everest Base Camp, many of you would wonder: Is Mera Peak difficult? To answer in short, Yes, climbing Mera Peak in Nepal is difficult. However, this varies from person to person and the time they decide to take this trek. Mera Peak Climbing in autumn is best because of the consistent weather and beautiful paths along the journey. Additionally, there are fewer chances of experiencing challenges such as landslides, snowstorms, or floods. The best vistas of snow-capped mountains and other natural wonders will be available to trekkers in the autumn season.

At a height of 6476 meters, Mera Peak is the tallest trekking peak. Without proper preparations, this trekking experience can be troublesome for some people. With some physical exercises, proper mountain knowledge, prior trekking experience, and guidance, this Mera Peak trek is very enjoyable yet challenging. You may require some previous trekking experience but extra technical climbing skills are not required for Mera Peak Climbing.

You need to be in sound health and choose the time wisely if you want to win over this trek. In addition, you need to watch for altitude sickness at such a high height. Hence, make sure you know the symptoms and preventive cures of Altitude Sickness before you decide to go on a Mera Expedition.

Best Time for Mera Peak Climbing:

The best time to climb Mera Peak is the Spring and Autumn seasons. Various factors work to make this season the best time for this journey, like safe routes, steady/ predictable and tolerable weather, gorgeous views etcetera.

Summer and Winter seasons are not preferred for the climb. The heavy rainfall results in slippery trails thus unfavorable during Summer/Monsoon season. Likewise, the extreme temperature that drops as low as -30 degrees is the reason climbing Mera Peak in Winter is not popular.
