Trip Overview

Mera Peak (6476m), situated on the edge of the famous Khumbu region dominated by the monstrous Mt. Everest (8848m), is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. It is one of the most alluring trekking peaks in Nepal as it involves a culturally arousing journey through picturesque villages and forests. Rated as an alpine PD difficulty climb, it is a physically demanding snow trek with straightforward climbing. But all the difficulty is forgotten in the awe of the spectacular views of the mighty Himalayas.

Mera Peak sits in the Mahalangur section of the Himalaya, east of the Everest. The trek combines summiting the highest trekking peak and relatively quiet Arun Valley.

You will be marching through the Hongu and Hinku valleys which have remained uninhabited. And hence in their pristine natural form. As you pass through the upper Hongu basin, you will find yourself in the wilderness of the mountains. And will tend to wander through the forests, moraines, glacial lakes, and the surrounding peaks. Upon reaching the summit of the luscious Mera Peak, get ready to be taken aback by the grandiose of gigantic Himalayas, which include the Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8481m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Nuptse (7861m), and Chamlang (7319m), and Baruntse (7129m).
