Mera is one of the highest trekking peaks in the Himalayas. Rising south of Everest, Mera was first climbed by the snow standard route. The ascent of Mera is technically straightforward, requiring little more than crampons and ice axe. We will fix ropes where necessary and our guides and Sherpas will assist.
After meeting in Lukla, our trek will begin by heading northeast. We will walk along a high, rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us into the remote and largely uninhabited Hinku Valley. At Khare, we will rest and explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village. We will proceed to Khare and establish camp. Our ascent will follow the glacier that leads to Mera La and on to high camp where we will prepare for our early morning summit. From high camp, we can take in a sweeping view of Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Ama Dablam and Cho Oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions, we will summit Mera Peak the following morning.
