MERA PEAK
CLIMB MERA PEAK,
THE
HIGHEST
TREKKING PEAK
IN NEPAL

Standing at 6,476 m, Mera Peak is the classic Himalayan trekking peak. Never steep enough to get too scary, but at a seriously high altitude, Mera Peak is a great introductory climb for those looking to test the waters at high altitude. 


Our expedition starts in Kathmandu, and after a few days of sightseeing and preparation we fly to Lukla, the beginning of our mountain journey. From Lukla we immediately head off the beaten track and away from the busy Khumbu Valley by crossing the Zatrwa La to the quiet Hinku Valley. A pleasant few days are spent hiking up the Hinku until we reach Mera Peak base camp, and Mera La. Above Mera La we place our high camp, from where we launch our summit push in the early morning hours.

 

From the summit of Mera Peak you will be amazed at the stunning view, where you can see 5 of the 6 highest mountains in the world.

 

Lying a little to the south of the main Himalayan Range, you will be offered the full Himalayan panorama, from the Langtang region and Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain in the west, whilst also taking in Nuptse, Lhotse (4th), Everest (1st), Baruntse, and Makalu (5th), to Kanchenjunga (3rd) in the far east.

 

From Mera Peak we retrace our steps, moving a lot quicker after being fully acclimatized for a well earned drink and team celebration back in Lukla. Before you know it you’ll be back to the hustle and bustle of busy Kathmandu, where a nice warm shower and your onward flight awaits!
