Mera Peak
The Mera peak trek (6476m) is famed for the being the biggest trekking peak in Nepal, though there is little technical difficulty required to climb. Mera Peak rises to the South of Everest and dominates the beautiful and remote valleys of Hinku and Hongu. The ascent of Mera Peak is made from the Mera La pass (5415m) on the Northern Face, which connects the unpopulated valley of Hongu to the Hinku valley. The late Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tensing were the first climbers to do the Mera Peak Trek, following this very route on 20th May 1953. The Mera Peak Trek begins in Lukla (after a short flight from Kathmandu). From Lukla six days of trekking will see you through fascinating Sherpa Villages to Mera Base Camp (5099m) situated at the base of an immense glacier leading to the Mera La Pass.
As the ascent of Mera Peak continues two more High Base Camps are set up at 5385m (a little below Mera La) and a higher one at 5800m, from where the summit ascent can be attempted. Mera Peak has two distinct summits, the main one being the Northern Summit (6476m), which is reached by skirting the Central Summit (6461m) and following a classic snow ridge to the top. Even though the Mera Peak climb is technically straightforward, there are some crevasses to manoeuvre around, and the route can be long and demanding after a fresh snowfall. The climb from Mera La to the Summit is gradual with an outstanding mountain panorama of the Eastern Nepal Himalayas always in sight. The peaks visible include Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Kangchenjunga (8586m), Nuptse (7855m) and Chamlang (7319m) amongst many others.
