First ascent in May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing. Mera Peak (6654m), officially the highest trekking peak in Nepal, lies in the southeast of Mt Everest region through the big forest in Hinku valley and comparatively less settlement. The trekking route to Mera is not a regular route of trekking. Trekking through Hinu and Hong Drangkas Valley with the wooded forests it be interesting for trekking as the area is less crowded than in regular trekking zones, such as Annapurna, Langtang, or Everest.
The climb to Mera Peak is technically straightforward. Climbing gears like crampons, ropes, ice axe, and all the basic mountaineering equipment are necessary. All Nepal Hiking has carefully crafted this trip keeping in mind a place for proper acclimatization, pace, and rest before reaching the Base Camp. ANH supplies sufficient fuel and food with necessary mountain gear and enough manpower with technical knowledge. Our climbing guides are experienced with advanced training from NMA and are also supported by other Sherpa crews.
The views from the Mera Peak summit are one of the finest views in the entire trekking peaks of Nepal. There are views of Kanchanjungha, Makalu, Chamlang, and Baruntse in the east, Cho-Oyu, Amadablam, and Kangtega in the west, and Everest in the North. Similarly, one can also view the Lhotse /Nuptse ridge. The Mera Peak climbing trip starts with a 40-minute mountain flight to Lukla. The Zatwa La pass at 4200 mtrs could be the first challenge for acclimatization. In Khare, you will have a couple of surrounding day trips to get used to the altitude.
