Mera Peak is officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal that offers unlimited mountaineering adventure. Mera Peak is an attractive peak that rises to the south of Mount Everest and dominates the uninhabited valleys of Hongu and Hinku. The peak was first climbed in 1953 by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing. However, the proper ascent of Mera Peak was made in 1975 by French Climbers - Marcel Jolly, G. Baus and L. Honnis who climbed the North Peak following the same route as Roberts, but traversing along the connecting ridge to the further summit. Climbing of Mera Peak is considered more adventurous and less challenging than other trekking peaks with little or no mountaineering experience.
Mera Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and entire Everest of Nepal. After landing at the airstrip of Lukla, we start our pre-climbing journey that heads through less crowded terraced landscapes, untouched valleys and charming villages inhabited by Sherpa people. Before reaching at Mera Peak Base Camp, our trek heads through frozen waterfalls, dense forests, paddy fields and amazing glaciers with stunning views of high mountain ranges. Our base camp is set up at 5300 meters.
