Is Travel Insurance required for mera peak climbing?

Travel insurance is mandatory before beginning any peak climbing in Nepal. So, Trekking Planner Nepal strongly advises you to get your travel insurance for any trekking or climbing activity, including the hike to Mera Peak. Also, you must consider that your insurance covers all emergency medical bills, evacuation and return, trip cancellation or interruption, loss of bags or valuables, and other unplanned circumstances should all be covered by a comprehensive travel insurance policy.

Trekking Planner Nepal also asks you to read and study the policy carefully and ensure it covers the activities you intend to do, such as climbing and mountaineering at high elevations. Similarly, you must be aware of any restrictions or limitations, such as altitude restrictions or pre-existing medical issues. Trekkers must bring a copy of their travel insurance policy in an emergency.

Can we get altitude sickness during mera peak climbing?

The Mera Peak climb is a high-altitude trek that reaches an elevation of 6,476 meters (21,247 feet). Altitude sickness, commonly known as acute mountain sickness (AMS) normally seen from an altitude of 2400m for beginners. AMS is dangerous for both climbers and also guides sometimes. AMs normally seen to those who travel to high heights too quickly without adequate acclimatization.
Some of the symptoms of AMS are:

  • Headache.
  • Nausea and dizziness.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Exhaustion.
  • Difficulty in sleeping.

Altitude sickness, if left untreated, can lead to more serious illnesses such as high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and high altitude cerebral edema (HACE), all of which can be fatal.

AMS is common to everyone, but to prevent this, enough time for acclimatization is needed. Trekking Lanner Nepal suggests you acclimatize yourself to the thinner air at higher elevations. Proper acclimatization is essential to minimize the danger of altitude sickness on a Mera Peak Climb. This can be done by gently climbing higher elevations and allowing your body time to adjust to the altitude.

Besides proper acclimatization, other ways to avoid altitude sickness is staying hydrated, avoiding alcohol and sleeping tablets, and eating a well-balanced diet rich in carbs.

Washing and Toilet Facilities at Mera Peak  

Mera Peak is a known and popular climbing destination in the Everest region of Nepal, and bathroom and washing facilities depend on the route and lodge options chosen. The tea shops and lodges along the Mera Peak trail provide basic washing and toilet facilities. These facilities, ranging from a basic squat toilet to a flush toilet with running water, may be shared with other trekkers. The quality and cleanliness of these facilities may also differ based on their location and traffic volume.

Regarding shower facilities, certain tea houses and lodges may provide hot showers. However, they usually charge an additional expense. Some lodgings may have basic restrooms with a bucket and a cold water tap. It is important to remember that water conservation is firmly due to the state's remote location and limited resources. Taking bucket showers and using as little water as possible is recommended.

Overall, while the facilities for washing and toilets on the Mera Peak trek may not be luxurious, they are functional and adequate for most trekkers.

      The best guide!!!

      I did the Mera peak trekking 6,476 m with my guide Gyeljen Sherpa. A very friendly and professional guide that knows everything about the mountains. When we reached Mera high camp 5,800 m I was very sick and had to stay for an extra night, as we were ready to go back down, Gyeljen asked me if I was feeling any better and wanted to try to reach the top, I said ok and we tried but shortly after it started to snow very heavily and we had very poor visibility, we reached 6,260 m and decided to go back down because Gyeljen considered it to be very risky and put safety first!!! Never the less I was happy that he pushed me over my limits. Highly reccomend Gyeljen Sherpa as a guide for his professionalism and dedication to the customer.

      Professional guide!!!

      I did the Mera peak 6,476 m trek with my guide Gyeljen Sherpa, he assisted me in all ways possible! Gyeljen is an expert on those mountains and was very friendly and helpful. Even if I didn't reach the summit because I got sick, Gyeljen did his best and got me to 6,260 m after which we had to descend due to heavy snow falling and low visibility. I would reccomend Gyeljen Sherpa anytime for his professionalism and dedication to the customer.
