Mera Peak Climbing
At a Glance

    Mera Peak is a popular trekking and climbing destination in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Mera Peak, standing at 6,476 meters, ranks among Nepal's highest peaks permitted for climbing. Situated on the eastern side of the Khumbu or Everest region, the Mera Peak trek itinerary navigates through a forest adorned with pine trees and Rhododendrons in the Hinkhu valley. The climb to Mera Peak is considered relatively easy for reaching the summit, offering breathtaking mountain scenery, pristine forests, wildlife encounters, and high-altitude climbing experiences.

    While the ascent itself is technically straightforward, the presence of heavy snow and a labyrinth of crevasses can extend the journey to the summit. The first successful ascent of Mera Peak occurred on May 20, 1953, by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing. However, British expeditions extensively explored the region in the early 1950s.

    The Mera Peak Expedition is renowned not only as the highest peak in Nepal but also provides a unique opportunity to feel as though standing atop the world's highest peak, Mt. Everest (8,848m), which looms directly in front. The panoramic views include other towering mountains like Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), and Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m), all nestled within the Everest region.

    A distinctive aspect of the Mera Peak journey is the chance to explore lesser-visited and unspoiled areas, where dense forests still cover the hillsides. Additionally, the expedition allows for an immersion into the rich Sherpa culture and traditions in the Hinku valley.

    Commencing the trek for Mera Peak climbing can start from Phaplu, Lukla, or Tumlingtar, all easily accessible by a direct 30-minute flight from Kathmandu.
