Mera Peak (6461m) is one of the highest permitted in Nepal. This peak is located in the Khumbu or Everest region. The trail to the peak goes through the forest full of pine trees, Rhododendrons in Hinkhu valley. Mera Peak is the easy peak for making the summit. Mera Peak offers some of the most stunning mountain scenery, immaculate forest, wild life and high altitude climbing in the world. The ascent of Mera peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953 but it is believed that the region was first explored extensively by British expeditions in the early 50's. The most rewarding aspect of the trip to Mera peak is that you will have a chance to venture into little-visited and as yet unspoiled areas in the region, where the hillsides are still densely forested. Furthermore, during the peak climbing, one can have an opportunity to explore the rich Sherpa culture their tradition in the Hinku valley. Mera peak is not only famous and highest peak in Nepal, but you can have better chance and get feeling as if you are on the top of the highest peak of the earth, as the Highest peak of the world Mt. Everest (8848m) is rightly in front of you, so as, you can have views of other highest mountains namely, Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m), Mt.Makalu (8463m),Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m) and other mountains lying along the Everest region.

Just want to share and say a public thank you for a great trek up to Mera Peak. The owner Cholendra and his team have great local knowledge thanks to growing up in the area. Our guide seemed to know every person in the tea houses :)
We had an amazing expedition to climb Mera Peak with Himalayan Joy. We successfully summited the peak thanks to the great planning from Cholendra and the perfect guiding of Tika. The hospitality that Himalayan Joy showed, the impeccable planning - including many contingencies for the weather, and the friendliness of the porters, was incredible. It was a once in a lifetime trip, and we couldn't have asked for a better team.
Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
