Mera Peak Climb Difficulty

Many people brave to climb Mera Peak because it is the tallest trekking peak in Nepal. Though Mera Peak climb does demand high fitness, you don’t need to be a technical climber to conquer the peak. Previous climbing experience is not compulsory but it would be a great bonus. However, you have to use crampons, harness and ropes at some section of the trail.

Train for your climb

Altitude might always be significant in successful climb, but a good level of fitness is equally important for this rigorous climb.
Preparing your body mentally and physically enhances your ability to walk efficiently and safely over the uneven rocky surfaces, mountain terrain and increase endurance level to continuously climb uphill for hours to reach the top of mountains.

You need equal strength to drop back safely. There are many cases of injuries that occurred during descend. People push their limits to get to the top and have nothing left in the tank to return back.
A good physical training will help you get strong: both physically and mentally.

Borrow yourself few hours a day and train your legs and body hard for few months prior the commencement of Mera Peak summit expedition. Your training must include the enhancement of muscles that you will be using to go uphill as well as downhill. Weight resistance exercise and cardio vascular training – running, swimming, HILT would be perfect.

Also engage on a hike over nearby hill (elongate it successively) and make your body perfectly fit to challenge the mountains. You will be really thankful to us during the journey.
