Mera Peak Overview

COUNTRY: Nepal
MAX. ALTITUDE: 6476m
CATEGORY: Mountaineering
DIFFICULTY:
P4
T3

Mera Peak is a spectacular free-standing mountain, situated in one of the less populous Nepali valleys and provides climbers with an extremely varied mountain adventure. At 6,476m, Mera Peak is not only the highest trekking point in Nepal, but also one of the highest in the world. An ascent of Mera is not only about reaching an impressive summit but also a fascinating combination of mountain trekking, exploration and Sherpa culture.

A flight into Lukla brings us to the starting point of this trek in the spectacular and seldom visited Makalu Barun National Park and which winds its way through densely forested hillsides and over stunning high mountain passes. We follow the route through the Hinku Valley and onto Thagnak, turning east to Khare before reaching base camp at 5,300m. We spend a day in Base Camp acclimatising and honing our glacier travel skills before heading to our high camp at 5,800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera Glacier.

The high camp is one of the most glorious viewpoints in Nepal, offering panoramic views of Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse sweeping around from the east, and Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west. The giant faces of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse appear in the north. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the summit bid demanding. Mera Peak is not likely forgotten, it is rich in Nepalese culture and striking in beauty.
