MERA PEAK

CLIMB MERA PEAK,

THE HIGHEST TREKKING PEAK IN NEPAL

Standing at 6,476 m, Mera Peak is the classic Himalayan trekking peak. Never steep enough to get too scary, but at a seriously high altitude, Mera Peak is a great introductory climb for those looking to test the waters at high altitude. 


Our expedition starts in Kathmandu, and after a few days of sightseeing and preparation we fly to Lukla, the beginning of our mountain journey. From Lukla we immediately head off the beaten track and away from the busy Khumbu Valley by crossing the Zatrwa La to the quiet Hinku Valley. A pleasant few days are spent hiking up the Hinku until we reach Mera Peak base camp, and Mera La. Above Mera La we place our high camp, from where we launch our summit push in the early morning hours.

 

From the summit of Mera Peak you will be amazed at the stunning view, where you can see 5 of the 6 highest mountains in the world.

 

Lying a little to the south of the main Himalayan Range, you will be offered the full Himalayan panorama, from the Langtang region and Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain in the west, whilst also taking in Nuptse, Lhotse (4th), Everest (1st), Baruntse, and Makalu (5th), to Kanchenjunga (3rd) in the far east.

 

From Mera Peak we retrace our steps, moving a lot quicker after being fully acclimatized for a well earned drink and team celebration back in Lukla. Before you know it you’ll be back to the hustle and bustle of busy Kathmandu, where a nice warm shower and your onward flight awaits!

Mera Peak Base Camp - Everest One
Meet your head guide
Everest One head guide - Allan Cohrs

Allan Cohrs BM is the owner of Everest One and personally guides on many of our trips. 

Sharing time with Allan in the mountains is a common theme most of our guests regularly comment on and part of the reason why so many of our guests keep coming back.

 

He is down to earth, humble, approachable, discreet, professional, caring and wants you to succeed, but also help you create unforgettable memories along the way. 

You will also be supported by our expert Sherpa guides who have been hand-picked for their professionalism and experience, many of whom have reached the summit of Mt Everest and other high-altitude peaks.

 

Having that experience beside you all the way, knowing that everything is taken care of, and your safety and success (in that order) are our primary focus, allows you to relax and feel confident with the decision you have made.

Allan will be leading the trek into Everest Base Camp along with the climb of Lobuche East.

He has guided in all corners of the globe with over 25 high altitude climbs in the Himalayas including Mt Everest (8850m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu (8200m), Baruntse (7129m) and Ama Dablam (6812m).

 

Allan regularly guides on many Himalayan peaks including Mera Peak (6476m), Lobuche East and Island Peak, and also leads trips in Africa with 14 summits of Mt Kilimanjaro (5895m) along with successful climbs of Aconcagua (6960m), the highest mountain in South America. 

He and his team are experts at managing clients in a high-altitude environment which has resulted in some of the highest success rates in both climbs and treks they lead. 

 

Their experience expands to handling logistics, decision making, assessing risk and managing a happy and harmonious team.
