The highest trekking peak of Nepal - Mera peak
“Mera (Peak) is a chance to venture into a little visited and as yet unspoilt region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested and a need to be self-sufficient is essential. There is also, of course, the pleasure of going above 21,000 feet.” - Billl O’Conner, The Trekking Peaks of Nepal.
At 6,400mtr, Mera is officially the highest trekking peak in the Himalayas of Nepal. Rising south of Everest, Mera was first climbed by the now standard route n 1953 by Roberts and Sen Tenging. You will trek through the remote, heavily forested and largely uninhabited Hinku valley. The ascent of Mera is generally technically straightforward, requiring little more then crampons and ice axe. We will fix ropes where necessary and our trained guides and professional Sherpas will assist you as much as possible.
After an exciting mountain flight from Kathmandu to Lukla our trek will begin by heading southeast from Lukla. We will walk along a high rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us into the Hinku valley. Trekking and camping in this wild land of Himalayan pine forests is indeed an impressive experience. At Tangnang, we will rest and explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village. We will proceed to Khare (5,099m) and establish camp. Our ascent will follow the glacier that leads to Mera – La (5415m) and on to High camp (5800m) where we will prepare for our early morning summit. From high camp, we can take in a sweeping view of Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Ama Dablam and Cho oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions, we will summit Mera Peak the following morning.
We make our way back down the valley to Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu, you will have completed a demanding trek and achieved the summit of one of the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. By tradition Earthbound Expeditions buys the beers in Kathmandu for you!
Mera peak climbing also can be combined with Island peak climbing going over the pass of Amphulapcha and also can include Everest base camp with we have extra days to add and ofcourse more energy and money!!

"Rajan we want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you and all of Earthbound Expeditions that made our stay in Nepal such a pleasant and safe experience that will be remembered by us for a long time. Since I celebrated my 75th birthday with you on Everest Base camp trek, I am leaving my options open and I will try to stay in shape in case my son Mike needs company, he still has quite a few birthdays to celebrate and I know that he is anxious to spend some back in Nepal".., Joe and Mike, USA, Nov. 2007
