Mera Peak (6476m) is one of the highest permitted peak climbing in Nepal. This peak is located on the eastern side of the Khumbu or Everest region. Mera Peak trek routes itinerary goes through the forest full of pine trees, Rhododendrons in Hinkhu valley. Mera Peak climbing and trekking is the easy peak for making the summit. Mera Peak offers some of the most stunning mountain scenery, immaculate forest, wildlife 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 peak climbing, one can have an opportunity to explore the rich Sherpa culture their tradition in the Hinku valley.
Mera peak Expedition 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.

It was a group of 4 who decided to embark on this adventure up Mt. Mera. Cholendra who was the main coordinator was very thorough in ensuring all arrangements were made - from insurances to our gear. We had a great team - TikaRai as our guide, 2 porters (Poorna and Panam), and Tenji Sherpa as our climbing guide. All of them were so friendly and ever ready to go the extra mile for us. We had a few things not go to plan in the beginning. Our initial flight was cancelled, then the next day it was delayed, our original route was closed due to snow and we had to go the long way... but through all this, we were reassured and alternative plans were made without no fuss on our end. The trek was so enjoyable with breathtaking sceneries (literally breathtaking too), good food and delightful company. My wife had gone with Cholendra’s team before and she spoke highly of his team - and I can see why now. On our way to high camp at 5700m, we had bad weather (strong winds and extreme cold). My wife could not take the cold and needed to turn back. She was not in good shape and needed help getting back. The entire team pulled together and carried her down safety. They constantly made sure she was okay. Upon reaching basecamp, she got oxygen and whatever help she needed. The next day, we got a helicopter out to Kathmandu. This was necessary due to her clinical condition. I am eternally grateful to the team for their excellent management and professionalism. It was unfortunate that we had bad weather and when we got back to Kathmandu were shell shocked by the pandemic that got the ‘world’ on lockdown. We left Nepal immediately back home and Cholendra made all the arrangements needed. I hope to return to Nepal one day for another adventure, hopefully, this time with less drama in it. And without question, I would go with HIMALAYAN Joy.
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.
