Mera Peak Introduction

To limitless Mera Trip adventure, Mera Peak Climbing is currently the best trekking hill trip and mountaineering destination. Mt. Mera Peak is an impressive mountain that climbs up to Mount Everest’s South Mera and occupies the uninhabited Hongu and Hinku Valleys. Trekking to Mera Peak Route Map is seen as more exciting and less difficult than other trekking peaks with little to no knowledge of mountaineering.

Mera Peak Trek’s ambitious ascent is provided spectacular views of the world’s majestic mountains like Mt. Everest (8848 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m), and Mt. Makalu (8485 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201 m), and other prominent mountains in Everest region.

For a fast scenic mountaineering flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the Mera Peak Permit Cost and Itinerary starts. Lukla is the path to Khumbu and all of Nepal’s Everest. After landing at Lukla airport, we start our pre-climbing excursion heading through less crowded terraced landscapes, untouched valleys, and charming villages inhabited by Sherpa people.

Our highest trekking point goes through frozen waterfalls, thick trees, paddy fields, and spectacular glaciers with breathtaking views of large mountain ranges before entering Base Camp of Mera Point Expedition. Our Mera Peak Mountaineering base camp is located at a height of 5300 meters. We ascend higher from Mera Base Camp to hit the high plateau before we make a final ascent to Mera Peak peak.

After being fully acclimatized and properly equipped with all the climbing gear, we will consider the weather conditions and follow in our footsteps as our experienced climbing expert guides you. We must clear some pieces of difficult climbing and move to the peak of the Mera Peak Trail. A stunning and panoramic view of Everest, Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Baruntse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Kangtega, and other snow-capped peaks in the Everest area is rewarded for our exhausting Mera mountain climb to the pinnacle.
There, at the Mera Peak Tour peak, we should spend quick and valuable time heading down the same path back to Mera Peak Base Camp. After you reach your destination, Mera Base Camp, you will descend back to Lukla and then catch a flight to Kathmandu and bid farewell to your homeland.
