Meera Peak is one of the interesting Peak Climbing destinations in Nepal which is located in the Sagarmatha Region or the Everest region of the country in the eastern part of the nation. Meera Peak has the altitude of around 6,476 meters and hence the peak is relatively easier to climb for the trekkers and the climbers. Nepal Meera Peak is an interesting and fascinating destination for Peak Climbing in Nepal as it contains three major summits, namely: Meera North (6,476 metres), Meera Central (6,461 metres) and Meera South (6,065 metres) as well as a smaller "trekking summit", visible as a distinct summit from the south but not as marked as on most maps of the region.
Meera Peak Climbing begins with a mountain flight to Tenzing Hillary Airport at Lukla from the Capital City of Kathmandu. After 35 minutes of flight while enjoying the views of the nearby mountains, we will reach the Lukla Airport from where the Peak Climbing begins. Alternately, you can also embark on Meera Peak Climb all the way from Jiri to Lukla, enjoying the fascinating walk along the old Everest route. There are various methods to reach the Base Camp apart from easy route and normal route. If the trekkers are willing to view the panoramic views of different Himalayas like Kanchenjunga, Makalu, among others, then the High Camp is the perfect spot to color your dreams and turn them into reality. In addition, the Northern part of the Peak Meera, is considered as a straight- forward route for climbing.

The following gives you a general idea of the personal items that you can bring for the trek. The personal items are of individual interest, and choice. The most important fact that one should keep on mind is that one should have enough clothes to tackle the cold weather in the Himalayas.
In a supported trek, heavy items are carried by porters or yaks and personal belongings that you may need for the day like money, water bottle, rain gear, camera, sun cream and toilet paper etc. should be carried by yourself. So you are briefed to pack items in two different bags.
We will supply complimentary water and wind proof duffel bag which you can use on the trek and is carried by porter/s. The duffel bag is yours to keep after the trek. You can leave your bag with your non-trek items at the hotel in Kathmandu and collect them after the trek.

Upper Body - Head / Ears / Eyes
- Down Jacket (Optional/we can provide if you need one but is to be returned after the trek)
- Shade hat or baseball cap - some people drape a bandana down the back of their head and then put a baseball cap on to hold it is place. This can be a flexible alternative while keeping the sun off your ears and neck.
- Warm wool or synthetic hat that cover your ears.
- Balaclava - lightweight, thinner variety.
- Glacier glasses-100% UV protection with side shields and a hard-sided storage case (i.e. Julbo or Cebe). This is to protect your eyes from the stronger rays of the sun due to the thinner atmosphere which can cause a painful condition known as snow blindness. Regular sunglasses are not sufficient. If you wear prescription glasses, speak to your doctor about prescription glacier glasses, perhaps with transitional lenses.
- Headlamp - Black Diamond and Petzl both make several good ones. Make sure to bring extra batteries and that they are lithium batteries so that they will last in the colder temperatures. These are indispensable for getting around at night, reading, etc. so, don't go cheap here.
- Some people like ear-muffs; These are optional; a good hat, balaclava, and hooded jacket should really be sufficient, but this is a personal choice for some people (optional).
