Mera Peak (6,470m/21,228ft) is the highest NMA trekking peak in Nepal and lies on the edge of famous Khumbu region. The peak boasts an absolutely stunning summit panorama that includes five of the world’s 8,000m peaks- Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Everest. Mera Peak is becoming more popular among trekkers as it is ideally a suitable mountain for beginners. Although Mera Peak is physically very demanding, the climbing itself is quite technically straightforward not exceeding 30° on the snow slopes. The only qualification required to climb Mera Peak is excellent physical fitness and passion to adventure sports.
Our Mera Peak itinerary allows a gradual acclimatization to the trekkers and climbers. Mera Peak climbing begins following a short and exciting flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla to the hidden valley of Hinku through the serene forest of pines and rhododendron with grazing pastures and meadows, isolated and unspoilt wilderness of massive moraines, glacial lakes and finally Mera high camp at 5,800 meters (19,030ft). The first successful ascent of Mera Peak was made on 20 May 1953 by Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tensing through the way of Mera La which is now the standard expedition route. Our experienced expedition crew, hygienic food and quality equipment ensure you for a lifetime adventure reward in Nepal.
