Mera Peak Climbing
Mera is one of the highest peaks in Nepal Himalaya. Rising south of Everest, the peak was first scaled in 20th May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenjing. The ascent of Mera is generally technically straightforward that requires little more than crampons and ice axe. We will fix ropes where necessary and our Guides and Sherpas will assists you as much as possible. After a mountain flight from Katmandu, our trek will begin by heading southeast from Lukla. We will walk along a high, rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us into the remote and largely uninhabited Honku Valley. Trekking and Camping in this wild land of Himalayan pine forests is indeed an impressive experience. At tangnag we will rest and explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village. We will proceed to Khare (5,099m) and set up camp. Our ascent will follow the glacier that leads to Mera la (5,415m) and on to high camp where we will prepare for our early morning summit. From high camp, we can take in a sweeping view of Kanchanjangha, Chamlang, Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Amadablam and Cho-Oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions, we will summit Mera Peak the following morning. As we make our way back down the valley to Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu, you will have completed a demanding trek to achieve the summit of one of the more beautiful mountains in Nepal.
