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

Mera Peak was first climbed by J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing in 1953. In 1975, it was summited by French Climbers - Marcel Jolly, G. Baus, and L. Honnis. From the summit of Mera Peak, you will observe some of the finest views of the Himalayas. You will see Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Everest (8,848 m) & Mt. Nuptse (7,855 m) to the north, and Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m) & Mt. Makalu (8,475 m) to the east. You will also see numerous other snow-capped mountains such as 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 through several small villages where you will have an opportunity to observe local life, culture, and traditions. Similarly, on the way, you will pass by numerous monasteries, gompas, and chortens fastened with colorful prayer flags. We, Snowland Treks & Expedition has professionally designed our Mera Peak Climbing itinerary with steady ascents and enough acclimatization days to make a successful climb.
