Your health

Expedition members will be provided with pre-trip medical advice and a medical questionnaire and asked to visit their family physician to receive a full medical examination.  This information will be sighted only by the expedition leader and our medical adviser and treated with full confidentiality.

Level of experience required

This trip offers highlights of non-technical climbing at moderate to high altitude, and even though it is not technically difficult, the climb incorporates a lot of the components of the higher expedition peaks. An ascent of Mera Peak is regarded as the ideal introduction to Himalayan climbing.

Whether you’ve climbed mountains before, or you just have aspirations to experience Himalayan expedition life, this introductory trip will enable you to truly savour the realities of expeditioning and many a Mera Peak climber has been inspired onto other high mountains.

The climbing is low angle and involves the use of two camps on the mountain before making the attempt at the top. You will be supervised and supported by your qualified western guide who will teach you the necessary skills while experiencing this fantastic and safe adventure.

What you carry on the trek

On the trek into Base Camp you will carry a small daypack with your rain jacket, camera, water bottles and snacks.  Bring trekking boots for the walk and some spare shoes for relaxing during the evening.  In addition, you should have your own small personal medical kit to care for cuts, blisters etc.

What you carry on the mountain

We have the luxury of a strong Sherpa team that will carry most of the team equipment, food and ropes on the mountain. You are expected to carry your personal gear. This reinforces the need to take just the right amount of equipment with you on the mountain and to ensure you are ‘pack fit’ before you arrive on the expedition.
