Mera peak is a mountain in the Mahalangur section, Barun sub-section of the Himalaya and administratively in Nepal‘s Sagarmatha Zone, Solukhumbu District. At 6,476 m it is classified as a trekking peak. It contains three main summits: Mera North, 6,476 m , Mera Central, 6,461 metres (21,198 ft); and Mera South, 6,065 m (19,898 ft), as well as a smaller “trekking summit”, visible as a distinct summit from the south but not marked on most maps of the region. The height of Mera peak is often given as 6,654 metres (21,831 ft), and claimed to be the highest trekking peak. This figure actually points to nearby Peak 41, which was mistakenly named Mera in a list of Himalayan peaks, and the figures were copied to the official trekking peak list as they were, including the wrong location coordinates. Mera Peak is situated in Solukhumbu District of Nepal which is 6654 meters high. It is also well known for its most exceptional view of five more than 8000-meter peaks like Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Mera Peak Climbing (6654m) is the highest peak allowed for climbing in Nepal and also regarded as the one not demanding technical climbing.
Mera peak climbing is progressively attracting trekkers and novice climbers to have the feeling of hiking and climbing on snow and experiencing trekking in an isolated part of Khumbu region. The unspoiled and uninhabited Hinku valley below the Mera peak is one of the wildest and most beautiful in Nepal with its massive moraines, glacial lakes and stunning mountain views offered during the Climbing of Mera peak. This Mera Peak Climbing trip is a rewarding experience as it provides glorious views of Nepal and a vista that takes you to the Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east and Everest appearing over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north

We trek along the ridge of the HinkuKhola in the shadow of Mera Peak. We take lunch at Gondishung, the summer herders’ settlement on the west bank of the HinkuDrangka. Beyond Gondishung, we pass a 200-year-old LungsumgbaGompa where we can find Mera Peak scripted in rock along with its route to reach Mera. A short walk takes us to Thaknak, which is a summer grazing area with primitive lodges and shops.

Leaving Thaknak, we follow the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka, which offers spectacular views of Charpate Himal. The trail climbs through moraines to the snout of the HinkuNup and Shar Glaciers and then climbs more steeply to Khare. From here, we can see the northern face of Mera Peak which will be an amazing experience. After lunch, we can hike in and around Khare.
Overnight at Khare.
We walk through a boulder-strewn course on a steep trail to reach the Mera Peak Base Camp. From here, we continue further through the Mera La pass to reach the Mera High Camp. Our path is along a rocky trail, which can be hazardous if it has recently snowed, as there are a number of crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn. Then we set up a high camp while enjoying excellent views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, the south face of Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Baruntse.
