Mera peak climbing difficulty

Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal is moderate-level while trekking and strenuous while climbing a peak. The walking trail around Mera Peak covers a total of around 125 km. In general, the Mera Peak Climbing Route is steep, snowy, and rugged. The climbing path is not technical. But exposure to sun, wind, and cold while walking on snow using crampons and the fixed rope is challenging as well. You need strength to walk above 6,000 meters and deal with the thin air pressure and low oxygen level.

Please do not take Mera Peak Climbing 18 lightly just because of the non-technical position. Many other factors add up to make it difficult and strenuous. Apart from the climbing part, the trekking trail is rugged and off-beat. You cross Zatra La pass (4,600 m) while walking on the Mera Peak Climbing Route. The teahouses around Mera Peak are not very good as compared to the EBC Trek route either.
