Best Seasons for Mera Peak Climbing
The month of September, October, November (Autumn) and March, April, May (Spring) are the best time for Mera Peak Climbing. These months have the most stable weather conditions and lesser chances of dense fog with poor visibility.
The mountain weather is quite unpredictable as it fluctuates every hour. But, in Spring and Autumn, you will find quite moderate temperatures with the calm weather conditions.
However, you can also attempt this peak in winter (December, January, February) too. But for that, you must be extra prepared for the harsh cold and dense snow on the climbing trails. Also, you can attempt the peak in the summer time but the rain and fluctuating monsoon weather may add more challenge to your climb.
So, if you are a novice climber then you should attempt the peak in peak seasons instead of challenging your body and weather.
