Mera peak treks and climbing expedition of Mera North 6476 meters summit, frankly is not a trekking tour other than a climbing trip. Among the two familiar Mera peaks, central copes with most attention even though Mera North is the higher summit. The climbing trip should not be misled as a trek trip though there is plenty of trekking or hiking days involved. Be whatsoever, it is still a climbing trip that evolves certain scale of mountaineering sense and that’s the beautiful part of this trek, it provides first hand knowledge for beginners. Outspokenly, climbers don’t need to undertake a week long expensive course in Scottish mountains or the European Alps simply to climb Mera Peak.
Mera peaks are straightforward peaks and the art to fulfill climbing dream comes free with the trip. Yes, the trip requires the use of climbing equipment, but far out technicality barely subsists with Mera. It’s a unique mountain for intrepid beginners and the art of walking with crampons and utilization of ice axe are easily attainable while crossing the Mera Glaciers. The section of technicality, using fixed ropes and Jumar (ascender) comes into practice towards final approach for ascent below the dome of Mera central. However, technically Mera North is the true summit and is relatively much easier.
