Mera Peak Climbing

Trip Overview of Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing: Mera peak is popular one or the popular trekking peaks in Nepal which rises to the south of Everest. The straightforward peak  will, sometimes, be longer to trek because of the heavy snow and crevasses.  Since the trek to Mera peak begins from Lukla, it will be the unforgettable experience to pass through the dense forests in hill sides.

Alternative routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the Mingbo La (5,871m) are more adventurous and have more spectacular scenery but the problem is this route is a little bit difficult.
To start climbing, the base camp should be set up at 5,300m on the Hongu side or camp can be set higher at 5,800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera glacier. The higher camp has more glorious panoramic viewpoints of giant peaks such as Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse from the east and Amadablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west. Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse add more viewpoints to observe in the north.

Mainly three summits of Mera peak are climbable without much difficulty. Those summits are South summit (6,065m), Northern Summit (6,476m) and Central Summit (6,461m). Northern summit is easier to climb than South. Central summit is the highest summit following snow ridge to its top.
