Mera Peak Climbing (6476m/21246 ft)

The Mera peak 6475m. is situated in Khumbu region south- est of Everest.This is the highest peak allowed for climbing in Nepal but also the one not demanding technical climbing. Being such a high mountain, the climb is of course a strenuous one, but the slopes rarely exceed 30 degree and hence it is technically straight

Mera peak climbing is through the extremely beautiful Hinku valley. The unspoiled and uninhabited Hinku valley below the Mera peak is one of the wildest and most beautiful in Nepal with its massive moraines, glacial lakes and stunning mountain views.

Mrea Peak trek starts after 35 munites fly from Kathmandu to Lukla with a exhilarating mountain flight. From Lukla we ascend slowly to eastward, cross the Zatra la pass and finally reach the Mera la pass on the nineth day where we make our base camp for Mera peak climbing. Climbing Mera Peak is possible in a single day from the base camp but we avoid rush. We allow proper rest and acclimatization and make use of high camp to ensure success. Finally we ascend the three summits of Mera from where we would enjoy absolutely stunning summit panorama that includes 5 of the worlds 8000m peaks - Kanchanjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Everest.

Below are two itineraries of Mera peak climbing. After the summit, the second itinerary follows the trail to hinku valley leading to Baruntse glacier , crosses the Amphu Lapcha pass (5780 m) and emerges to Chhukung.

This trek is a fully supported camping trek with accommodation in twin sharing tents and food being prepared by our camp cook. You just carry light day pack, rest is carried by yaks and our porters, and the average walking is 6 hour.
