Mera From Phalpu


Trip Facts

Duration :

Difficulty Level : 1

Group Size :

Maximum Altitude :

Ascent of Mera Peak 6450 m with departure from Salleri Phaplu

The main interest of Mera Peak since Phaplu or Salleri rather than Lukla is to have a much better acclimatization to the altitude because the first stages are done at low altitude whereas by Lukla from the second day one goes up to 4800 m with a night at 4600 m.

The beginning of the trek is done in the peerages around 1800 m and in 4 days we reach a beautiful lake in Kholakharka where we will stop. Then we join the valley which leads us first to Tangnag and we will make a day of acclimatization before joining Khare at 5050 m with another day of acclimatization.

We are well acclimatized to climb Mera Peak which starts at High Camp 5700 m camp before the summit. Great view of Everest, Makalu, Baruntse at sunset.

The next day is the big day ascent of Mera Peak and return to Khare, a big day. The climb to Mera Peak does not pose any technical difficulty. The glacier is little steep and little cracked. At the end a very small climb of 50 m to 35 ° that the Sherpas equip with a fixed rope allows access to the summit and the view of the Himalayan chain from Makalu to Cho Oyu. Superb. The return is done by the Zatrav pass, which allows you to make a loop.

Thanks to Hyuk-Rae Min, Céline Roulet, Jacques Guillermin and Christophe Gotty for their photos taken during different treks at Mera Peak.

Difficulty climbing Mera Peak

 

The ascent of Mera Peak is not technically difficult. However, she claims a good physical condition and a bivouac at 5700 m is necessary. The final slope is inclined at about 35 ° and 50 m high and equipped with a fixed rope.

 

On the other hand, the Mera Peak with Amphulapsa is a bit more difficult. The crossing of the Amphulapsa requires to be able to cling to the ascent and descent in slopes of about 45 °, know how to use a descender, to walk roped, know how to use a jumar.
