The Mera peak vs island peak climbing

We have asked with our past climbers. According to them, both peaks offer different challenges. In terms of its objective challenges, Mera is the highest trekking peak climbing in Nepal but has few objective dangers like crevasses, snowfall whereas Island Peak is almost like a mini Everest. In fact, the route we use is the same as Edmund Hillary and Tenzing used back in 1953 in preparation for their successful ascend at mount Everest climb.

Moreover, you can see the tallest mountains, the high mountain villages, impressive landscapes, and some of the oldest Buddhist monasteries. It has a great opportunity to experience the local Sherpa friendliness.

Mera peak luxury climbing tours

Mera Peak is the most demanding highest trekking peak in Nepal that is characterized as ‘traveling tops’. At 6,476m it is an extremely high mountain in spite of the fact that it requires practically zero specialized jumping on its typical route.

Despite that, we suggest climbers for climbing Mera Peak in late April, May, late September, October, and November. We find that when we get on Mera Peak, by and large, the greatest months are May and October. On the off chance that you choose to move in late March, early April, or late October into November, you should be prepared for colder conditions.

To prepare Mera top climbing you need deep and length fortitude alongside perseverance. You can incorporate lungs, step heart stimulating exercise to your preparation program is incredible for this.

In deed, some climbers who don’t have enough time for climbing peaks in the Himalayas especially Mera La summit, usually choose for a luxury climbing plan which includes the Helicopter flight from Lukla to Khare Guesthouse and after climbing summit Mera tour then they take again a helicopter flight back to Lukla. But then the chances of altitude sickness are higher, so this type of option is available for professional climbers only. And they choose a regular flight on a good weather day from Kathmandu to Lukla and return otherwise chopper flights. In terms of cost, regular Planes are more efficient and cheaper to fly because they can travel faster and farther on less fuel.
