Mera peak climbing at the elevation of 6,476m in the lower Khumbu region of Nepal is a classified trekking peak declared by the Nepal Mountaineering Association. The peak contains three main summits: Mera North 6476m, Mera Central 6,461m, and Mera South 6,065m. It is the highest trekking peak among several other peaks in Nepal.

Mera Peak Climbing is adventurous and less challenging with little mountaineering experience. Most of the trip is hiking through the villages of Hinku valley. The trekking demands less technical experience rather than physical fitness and acclimatization with the high altitude. Therefore, it is a perfect trekking route for beginners to begin their climbing and mountaineering experience. 

Mera peak offers the magnificent panoramic summit views of five of the six world’s tallest mountains: Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m, Mt. Makalu 8463m, and Mt. Kanchenjunga 8586m. The trekking route itself is the exploration of the lush green subtropical forest filled with rhododendron, pines, and oak trees surrounded by the giant Himalayan peaks. 

The trip to Mera peak kicks off with a scenic mountain flight to Lukla Airport from Tribhuvan International Airport. We will meet our trekking experts and staff and continue our journey through remote and beautiful Hinku Valley. The terraced fields, running streams, and dense forest in this area of Everest region is home to the Sherpa and Tibetan culture. 

 Best time to Travel:

Mera peak is technically less challenging to climb, however, because of the higher altitude, the weather can be tough if not traveled in the best season. The best season for climbing the Mera peak is spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November) when the wind is low and rain is zero. Mera Peak Climbing will be technically more difficult in the winter season unless you wish to do so. Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal is all-time popular among beginner climbers as you can witness panoramic views of a hundred plus snow-capped peaks, during the clear weather.
