Mera Peak Climbing is the highest climbing peak in Nepal. Situated in the Solukhumbu District, Mera Peak stands 6,654 meters above the sea level. Despite its height, Mera Peak Climbing is relatively easier than other climbing peaks because the trail includes little to no technical climbing section. However, you have to prepare yourself for long trekking hours. Mera Peak Climbing is the best option for novice climbers who are thinking to summit the highest mountains. This trail is an ideal way to introduce yourself with Himalayan paths and warm-up before commencing true challenging journeys. Mera Peak Climbing will take you to unspoiled and uninhabited Hinku valley located below the Mera Peak. Hinku Valley is one of the stunning and isolated valleys of the Khumbu region that includes massive moraines, glacial lakes, and marvelous mountain views.

Mera Peak was first climbed by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing in 1953. However, in 1975 it was summited by French Climbers - Marcel Jolly, G. Baus, and L. Honnis. From the summit of Mera Peak, you will get to witness some of the finest views of Himalayas. You will see Mt. Lhotse (8,516m) in the north, Mt. Everest (8,848 m) & Mt. Nuptse (7,855 m) in the south, Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m) & Mt. Makalu (8,475 m) in the east. Other than this, you will get to see many snow-capped mountains like Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Mt. Pumori (7,161 m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6,856 m), Island Peak, Mt. Baruntse (7,720 m), and Mt. Thamserku (6,623 m). During the trek, you will also pass by several small villages where you will get an opportunity to get closer with locals. You will get to experience their lifestyle, culture, and tradition. Similarly, on the way, you will pass by numerous monasteries, gompas, and chortens fastened by colorful prayer flags. We, Snowland Treks & Expedition has professionally designed our Mera Peak Climbing itinerary with steady ascents and enough acclimatization days between the trek to make the journey easy and joyful.
