Mera peak (6,476m) lies in the edge of Khumbu Region which is highest peak permitted for climbing and it provides great and thrilling adventure experience for all adventure lovers. Mera peak is situated at Mahalangur Range and offers opportunity to enjoy unforgettable view of five mountains of above 8,000 meter height; Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m) and Cho Oyu (8,210m).
The peak’s Mera Central was first time climbed by British Army Officer Jim Roberts; grandfather of trekking in Nepal and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa in 1953 and Mera North by Frenchmen Marchel Jolley, G Baus and L Honis in 1975.
There are three route options to climb Mera peak. We choose widely preferred route which pass through Chutanga, Chatra La, Kothe, Thagnak, Khare, Mera Base Camp, High Camp and finally climb to summit of peak. This route is more rapid but a relaxed and offer adequate time to acclimatize.
On the journey, we walk through lush green Valleys, old-fashioned villages; offer glimpse of culture and life style of the local Sherpa people, beautiful green terraced fields, dense forest of rhododendron and pine forest, rushing streams, several suspension bridges and Yak pastures. Hinku valley is also the attraction of this trip which lies below the Mera Peak and widest and most beautiful valley with massive moraines glacier lakes and amazing view of mountains.
The journey start with the exciting mountain flight to Lukla then trek begin with a beautiful Rhododendron and pine forest and pass though Sherpa settlements, glaciers, rough terrain crevasses and finally little challenging climbing to reach summit. The best time for Mera Peak climbing is April, May, late September and October because of stable weather and day is warm as well as dry.
Mera Peak is not more technically challenging peak but on the final climb to summit we need to use some technical mountain climbing equipment such as Ica axe, Crampons, Harness, rope and so on. Previous experience is not mandatory for Mera Peak climbing but it add an advantage. The professional guide provides us required moderate mountaineering training of the climbing techniques, skills and use of gears.
