Best Time to Climb the Mera Peak

During autumn the weather and temperature of the Everest region are around 12 degrees during the daytime. The temperature at the peak may fall to minus. Although the weather may be cold at the peak, it is bearable. You can also have amazing visibility of the mountains and landscapes during the autumn season.

The temperature may fall to minus during the night time. You will be able to witness the scenery of the mountains and landscapes even more vividly during the spring season.

Mera Peak Difficulty

Mera Peak stands at an altitude of 6476 meters making it the highest trekking peak in Nepal. The difficulty level depends upon various factors such as the time of the year you will be trekking. It also depends on your strength. If you are someone who is used to trekking and mountain climbing above 4000 meters to 5000 meters, Mera Climbing might be a next to perfect adventure for you. But if not, it may be quite challenging as it requires a lot of stamina and endurance.

Trekking to the Mera Peak means you may have to walk for 4 days above the altitude of 5000 meters. So, there is a high chance of altitude sickness. You may be in short of breath as you trek to the Mera peak as at this altitude, the content of oxygen in the air is half of what it is at the sea level. If you find susceptible to altitude sickness with symptoms such as headache, nausea, and vomiting, immediately descend to a lower altitude. For climbing Mera Peak, you should be able to walk for about 6-7 hours.
