Mera Peak Climbing is categorized as the highest trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Mera Peak at an elevation of 6476 meters is adventurous but less challenging which requires little or no experience of peak summiting. However, it requires the preparation of proper safety gear and physical and mental fitness to trek to the steep hanging rocks and remain calm in the barren lands of the Himalayas.
Climb to Mera Peak is the easiest mountaineering in the Everest region where most of the peaks stand tall over 8000 meters. Primarily, mountaineers fly to Lukla from Kathmandu and land on the world’s dangerous airport runway. The trekkers descend off the beaten trails reaching Khare via Hinku Valley for a night stay. The beautiful Hinku valley remains unspoiled with green terrace farmlands, Buddhist Monasteries and provides mesmerizing views around the valley inhabited by the Sherpa people.
The trails are full of stunning snow-capped Himalayan Vistas, dramatic landscape, untouched valleys, and impressive floras and faunas. The trails take travelers to the most beautiful Everest region with frozen lakes, glaciers, deep gorges, rocky paths, giant waterfalls, and hanging suspension bridges.
Trekkers take sufficient time at an elevation of 4900m to acclimatize their body and mind to avoid AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) and take rest from rigorous trek at the tea houses. Further, the traveler set up two camps to acclimatize before climbing the Mera Peak (6476m) since the level of oxygen reduces drastically; one at Mera Base Camp (5350m) and another at a high camp (5800 m).
The mountaineers make a final push straight up to the elevation of 6476 meters using dynamic ropes crossing the icy hanging rocks takes them to the summit. The Mera Peak provides sensational 360° views of the world’s tallest mountains such as Mt. Everest (8848m), Ama Dablam (the necklace of Mt. Everest.), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516), Mt. Makalu (8481), Cho Oyu (8201) and several other highest peaks. It leaves trekkers speechless and provides a lifetime memory of adventure, nature, and culture. Finally, trekkers retrace back to Lukla Airport via Zatra La Pass through quaint villages which gives a glimpse of rich Sherpa culture.
