Mera Peak

Mera Peak at 6476 metres, is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal. Its summit panorama takes in five of the world’s 8000 metre peaks; Kangchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest and Cho Oyu. This ultimate Himalayan trekking and climbing adventure begins with a jeep drive to Khari Khola in the Solu Khumbu. From here, you will begin your adventure through the terraced farmland and forest of SoluKhumbu. You will pass by small settlements and yak pastures of the local Sherpas.
Mera Peak is an easy trekking peak. It is not necessary to have previous technical mountain climbing skills.

After your arrival, we have a gear check with you, and make all the necessary preparations for permits. The adventure begins with a day’s drive from Kathmandu to Khari Khola. You pass by Paphlu which is an important village for the local communities nearby. From Khari Khola, you will hike into the remote Hinku valley. The trail will go through rhododendrons and pine forests. At times you will pass by local Sherpa settlements and yak pastures. The crossing of the beautiful Chetar La pass already gives stunning views of the Khumbu region. Eventually, you will reach Khare where you will find yourself just below the Mera glacier. First, you will climb to Mera High Camp. From high camp, you will start early in the morning for your ascend of Mera Peak. The view from the summit to the mountains of the Everest region is well worth all the effort. From the peak you can see Kangchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Everest and Cho Oyu. After the climb, you descend down to Khare. From Khare, you will trek in a few days to Lukla. A flight back to Kathmandu ends this peak climbing adventure.
