Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Located at Hinku Valley, just beside the Khumbu region, the Mera peak climb offers excitement to both the amateur and expert climbers.
A technical climb, it’s harder than many other small peaks in Nepal. The trek starts from Lukla and up to Khare. From here, you climb all the way up to the summit and get back down. A challenging climb, a spare is kept to ensure you do not miss your summit for a bad weather.
The base camp of the Mera Peak is at an altitude of 5,300 m on the Hongu sector while the high camp is at an altitude of 5,800 m on a rocky projection. Prior peak climbing experience is not a necessary prerequisite for one to be able to climb Mera Peak; however, you must understand the risks involved and prepare yourself to take up the challenges of learning the skills quicker en trail.
Note: Keep a grace day to ensure you climb the summit even if you fail to do so the first day because of bad weather.
Requires prior experience of high-altitude trekking. The altitude may get over 6000 m and may require some climbing skills, such as; cramponing, ice-axing etc.

I had never done anything like this before, climbing a peak […] I summitted Mera Peak (6400+ meters) which I had my doubts on doing since I was coming directly from sea level, but was able to do it with no major problems! It was a great experience, the guides were amazing, the trip was amazing! ~Leah Thomas (USA)
