Tour Details

Mera Peak is a mountain in the Mahalangur mountain range, Barun sub-section of the Himalaya and administratively in Nepal’s Sagarmatha Zone, Solukhumbu District located at 6,476 meters which is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal. The best season to climb Mera Peak is during the spring and autumn seasons as you can see the majestic panorama views of the Himalayan. From the top of the peak, you can see the five 8,000m peaks including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga.

As you finally reach the majestic Mera Peak, officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal, you find yourself looking down and towards a great many magnificent natural landscapes. You will have a direct view of the southern face of Everest from this point of your trek. Moreover, you will have a great many rare glances of the watershed area, and the wild and heavily wooded valleys of Hinku and Hongu Drangkas from this heavenly space. On this route to the Mera (Peak), you can experience the rarest of the rare chances of venturing through the little-visited and as yet un-spoilt region of Nepal where the hillsides still remain densely forested for everyone’s pleasure.

Mera Peak climbing is an excellent option for anyone with moderate mountaineering experience. It is a challenging trekking peak due to its elevation, but the technical mountaineering skills requirement is very basic. Before the expedition, our seasoned Sherpa guides will provide you with basic mountaineering training before the actual summit.
