Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing

Overview And Highlights

Mera Peak Climbing (6476m), Mera Peak is Nepal's highest permitted trekking peak. Located in Makalu Barun National Park, it rises to the south of Everest and dominates the cut between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. The trek begins in the small city of Lukla and takes 8 days to reach Mera Peak Base Camp. The trail goes through the pristine forests of Rhododendron, oak, silver fir, and birch. On the way you can see Meera Glacier and a beautiful alpine lake and breathtaking views of different mountains. The summit of the peak is the best view point of the high mountain range. You can see Everest (8848m) and  Lhotse(8501m) to the north, Choyu (8201m), Manaslu (8163m)  and Amadamlam (6818 m) to the west, Kanchanjunga (8586 m) , Makalu (8463m) to the east.

The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953, by the, now standard, route from the Mera La. The ascent from Mera La, is technically uncomplicated; however after a heavy snowfall or when the maze of crevasses is open, the route can be long and demanding. By far the most rewarding aspect of a trip to Mera is the chance to venture into a little-visited and as yet unspoiled region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested.
There are many approaches to Mera Peak none are easy and some require the crossing of high and difficult passes, making a trek to the peak a real mountaineering adventure with spectacular viewpoints of Nepal. The simpler route to Mera Peak is from Lukla after a half an hour flight from Kathmandu with beautiful Mountain views.

It’s going to be very cold in the beginning but soon we warm up as we continue up the glacier and onto a peculiar ridge. The first rays of the sun hit the big peaks in an amazing red glow. The route is still non-technical as we slowly climb higher into the ever-thinning air. The slope steepens for a section behind the ridge and the summit comes back into view. At the foot of the final steep summit cone, we may use a fixed rope if the climbing leader believes it’s required. The summit is only a few meters away.
