Mera Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal, from the summit you are rewarded with some of the best views in the entire Solu Khumbu region. Rising to the south of Everest, the peak was first scaled on the 20th May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenjing. The ascent of Mera is generally technically straightforward requiring little more than crampons and an ice axe (ropes are fixed where necessary.) Your journey begins with a mountain flight from Katmandu to the mountain airstrip of Lukla, heading southeast from Lukla the route follows high rocky ridges through dense forests and across several streams before reaching a pass that enters the remote and largely uninhabited Honku Valley. Trekking in this wild land of Himalayan pine forests is a special experience. A rest day is taken at Tangnag for exploration and acclimatisation where you have time to explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village.The next day we trek on to Khare (5,099m) and set up Base Camp. The ascent follows the glacier that leads to Mera la (5,415m) and then on to a high camp to prepare for an early summit the following day. From high camp there are some sweeping views of Kanchanjangha, Chamlang and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Amadablam and Cho-Oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions the summit of Mera is made early in the morning, before returning to base camp the same day.The route back down the valley and on to Lukla follows the route in. From Lukla a flight is taken back to Kathmandu.This is an ideal trekking peak for people with less climbing experience although you need to be fit.
