Mera Peak (6476m) is the highest trekking peak in Nepal as well as one of the most sought after. Since the climb is challenging but at the same time non-technical, it is suitable for all fit trekkers who want to leave their footprint on the summit of the Himalayas. With an alpine PD difficulty grade, this is a physically demanding snow trek with straightforward climbing.
The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing on May 20, 1953 by the new standard route from Mera La. The region was first explored extensively by a British expedition in the early 50’s before and after the ascent of Everest.The view from the summit is one of the finest in the Himalaya with five 8000m peaks visible; Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516m), Kanchanjanga (8586m), Nuptse (7855m) and Chamlang (7719m) as well as the other Himalayan peaks.
Your trip begins after a short but exciting flight to Lukla. You will then trek through the remote region of the Hinku valley of Pangkongma and Panch Pokhari on your way to the base camp. The trek to Mera Peak Base Camp passes through some of the relatively less travelled trails in the Khumbu Region.
Your high camp will be set up at 5750m to make the summit day shorter and more enjoyable. The view you will be privileged from the high camp is truly breathtaking and probably one the best of its kind. After the successful climb, you will return through a direct route across a dramatic ride to Lukla and then take a flight to Kathmandu.
