Overview

Mera Peak, Nepal’s highest trekking peak, is a popular climbing destination for beginners from all over the world. Mera Peak, located in the ancient Everest region, has served as a training ground for mountaineers since its inception.

Similarly, Mera Peak is located in the Mahalangur sector of Nepal’s Solukhumbu region, which is the highest point of the Himalayas.

The Mera Central (6,476m), Mera North (6,476m), and Mera South (6,476m) are the three main summits of Nepal’s highest trekking peak (6,065m).

The first climbers of Mount Everest, Tenzing Norway Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary, initiated the custom of ascending the Mera peak before and after the Everest expedition. Since then, its popularity has never waned; in fact, it has grown year after year. Mera Peak climbing is taken as the ground to prepare yourself before Everest climbing.

Thousands of climbers visit Nepal every year solely for the purpose of ascending Mera Peak. Beginner mountaineers have a bigger share than experienced climbers. Mera Peak’s climbing and difficult environment is suitable for beginners to lace up their shoes. This is why it is regarded as the greatest mountain to begin a climbing expedition.

Crampons, ice axes, and other mountaineering gear are put to the test for the first time during this Peak climbing. That isn’t to say that climbing is solely about ascent and descent. Mera Peak is a long yet magnificent journey across the world’s most picturesque region.

From the top of Mera Peak, visitors may see four eight-thousanders: Mt Everest (8,848m), Mt Makalu (8,643m), and Mt Cho Oyu (8,201m), and Mt Lhotse (8,586m). What could possibly be a greater gift for a mountain enthusiast than being surrounded by mountain peaks all day long?

Mera Peak’s trek takes you via the famous Khumbu region. And this region has it all: Sherpa villages, lush forests, swinging suspension bridges, traditional gompas, monasteries, prayer flags, and so much more. It would take far too many words to describe what this peak climbing adventure has to offer.
