Read our top 10 tips for climbing Mera peak.  On this trip we use lodges for the first portion of the trip and then moving to a camping trip.  We have chosen an acclimatization program that gives you great diversity in the terrain along with giving your body the time needed to adjust correctly to the lack of Oxygen and climb above 5,500m/ 18,044 feet.

Mera and Island Peaks Training

We will spend 3 nights in Khare at 4,950m/ 16,240 feet giving us time to train, prepare and get further acclimatization for climbing up to 6,476m/ 21,246 feet. We will do some rope training, become completely comfortable with using ice axe, crampons, jumar, harness and abseiling using a figure of 8. Climbing on Mera Peak is relatively straight forward but these skills will be needed for crossing the Ampulaptsa pass and Island peak summit day which are the most difficult mountaineering days of the whole trip. Coming with abseiling/ rappelling experience is a must for this trip.

Crossing the Amphulaptsa pass to Island Peak

After you cross the Ampulaptsa Pass at 5,815m there is a steep abseil and a steep traverse down to the valley floor. Once we get to the bottom we have a long but amazing walk down towards Island Peak before we turn south around the glacier and head towards our camp for the night at the head of the glacier. Read our top 10 tips for climbing Island peak. We will then head on to climb Island Peak which is a 2 hour walk from the camp, we will set up Island Peak base camp, undertake more training, and then the following day move to high camp 5,500m/ 18,044 feet before a long assault on the summit 6,189m/ 20,305 feet and all the way back to Chuckung 4,700m/ 15,419 feet.

The Return Journey to Lukla

From Chuckung we will make the 3/4 day journey back to Lukla and back to Kathmandu. We will stop in Tengbouche and Namche before we make the long trek back to Lukla where the journey began. Get in touch and find out more information about this adventure. We have pricing, itineraries and a wealth of information about these climbs.
