Mera Peak is one of the famous trekking peaks in Nepal. Mera peak towers at 6476 meters and is considered to be amongst the tallest peaks of the Everest Region. It is officially the highest permitted trekking peak. Mera Peak is an attractive peak that rises to the south of Mount Everest and dominates the uninhabited valleys of Hongu and Hinku. Mera Peak (6476m) is located in the Lower Solu, south of Mt. Everest. There are three summits of Mera Peak: North (6,476 m), Central (6,461 m), and south (6,065 m). The ascent of the Mera Peak offers breathtaking views of 5 mountains over 8000 meters altitude – Mt. Everest 8848m, Mt. Cho Oyu 8201m, Mt. Makalu 8485m, Mt. Kanchenjunga 8586m, Mt. Lhotse 8516m and several other peaks of Everest region. Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal is considered more adventurous and less challenging than other trekking peaks in that region. This climbing offers a good experience of moderate peak climbing making it accessible to interested travelers globally.
The itinerary for climbing Mera Peak is certainly different, as we will be going via Phaplu, which lies in Makalu Barun National Park. You can enjoy the rich Sherpa culture and lifestyle in villages like Phaplu, Taksindu, Nunthala, and Kharikhola. The simplicity and contentment of people living in these villages will certainly make you ponder upon your life. There are many Gumbas throughout the route, the major one being Chiwang Monastery, where you can get good vibes and positive energy from. The trek will also take you through passes like Zatra Pass, Mera La Pass, and Taksindu Pass. As you approach Mera Peak, the trails become easier and not as steep. The trail from Kote to Khare is actually quite easy and enjoyable, despite the altitude. Walking the river valley up to Khote, with these magnificent peaks all around you is beyond words.
Expedition Himalaya allows you to enjoy the holiday to the fullest by organizing the complete package making your trip hassle-free. Accommodation at the tea houses operated by the local entrepreneurs will be provided with inclusive of the meals. During the summit days, the accommodation will be arranged in the tents. Our Mera peak expedition cook prepares all fresh, hygienic and really tasty food. As a safety precaution, we always carry a comprehensive medical kit.

Note: Please note that the Weather conditions in the Himalayas can be a big obstruction, even during the best trekking seasons. Bad weather or unsuitable weather conditions will directly affect the flight schedule, resulting in flight delays for a few hours to even a few following days. It is really challenging to travel to Lukla by 3 hours of driving, waking up at 2 am to drive to Ramechap Airport, then taking a 15-minute flight. To be safe, we therefore suggest that you extend your itinerary by a few days or opt for a helicopter rather than a fixed-wing flight to reach Lukla. If a flight is canceled, we'll do our best to reschedule it for the next day the following day (Subject to availability).
