Trip Overview

A trekking peak in the Mahalangur section of Nepal's Sagarmatha region, Mera Peak presents the most astounding views of five 8,000 meter peaks from its summit, including Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8414m), Cho Oyu (8188m), Makalu (8463m) and Kanchenjunga (8586m). As a matter of fact, Mera Peak Climbing is the best option for trekkers who would like a straightforward introduction to mountaineering. With warm hospitability of the Sherpa communities inhabiting the majority of the trekking route, you are sure to enjoy the journey whole-heartedly.

The journey to the summit of the Mera Peak involves going through south from the village of Lukla up the beautiful Hinku Valley of the Khumbu. While returning, the trail coruscates through the Zatra La Pass. Not only is the beautiful Nepalese wilderness explored during the journey, but the trip also lets climbers go through quaint villages where they can glimpse into the rich Himalayan culture of the local Sherpa people of the region. A challenging trekking peak due to its elevation, Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal with an elevation of 6,461 meters. Albeit being a challenge, the Mera Peak Climbing only requires basic technical mountaineering skills to do. The top of the peak houses majestic mountain peaks such as Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8818m), Lhotse (8414m), Lhotse Shar (8393m), Baruntse (7129m) and many such peaks.
