Everest Region in Nepal
Mera Peak with the height of 6,461 meters above the sea level is one ideal peak for mountain climbing in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is situated in Mahalangur range of the Himalayas, the same range where Mt. Everest is situated. Standing prominently between the wildernesses valleys of Hinku and Hongu, Mera Peak lies to the south of Everest and to the north-east of Lukla and is the second most popular Trekking Peak after Island Peak. The summit offers the overwhelming view of five 8000m peaks: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Several other beautiful peaks and mountains can also be seen from the summit – of course, weather permitting.
The route from the north is suitable even for climbers with less experience. However, it involves crossing a glacier at high altitude. The western rise as well as the south face is more difficult and suitable for skilled climbers. The normal route is still judiciously straight-forward with minimal technical difficulties. The main obstacle is the proper acclimatization to the altitude. Though Mera Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal, it would also be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time given a sufficient level of physical fitness. Keen hill walkers with some experience using crampons and ice-axe are well suited for this adventure.
If you can walk 5 miles a day and are in good aerobic shape (with a doctor’s approval), you can do fine and make it. The actual trekking is on mostly level ground with a few sections of steep hillsides – up and down. You should not carry more than a light day pack with a jacket, water and snacks. However, it is the altitude that creates the main issues. That said, the better shape you are in, the more you will enjoy the overall experience.
There’s no specific training needed if you are reasonably fit. If you are completely sedentary, then yes some cardiovascular training would be recommended. Stair climbing or hill walking will get most people ready. Remember you’ll be walking up and down rough paths for 8-12 days. You’ll be at altitude too which will make things much harder. Having a good level of fitness will help you enjoy your trek more and always remember, it’s not a race!

It depends on your route, but EBC trek usually takes about 15 days. We suggest you not to go on a rush trek primarily due to the altitude. You will be landed in Lukla at (9,250 feet) and go to EBC at (17,500 f.). If you go too fast or rush your itinerary, you might get altitude sickness which is harmful.
