Mera peak (6460 meter) is one of the famous “Trekking peak” in Nepal. It is perhaps best known because it is Nepal’s highest trekking peak. The ascent is not technically demanding and unequalled views of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu will more than satisfy your aspirations.The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953, by the now standard route from the Mera La. By its regular route from Mera La, the ascent is technically uncomplicated; however, after a heavy fall of snow or when the mazes of crevasse are open, the way can be long and demanding. Far above the most rewarding aspect of a trip to Mira is the chance to venture into little-visited and as yet unspoiled region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested.

Lukla is the commencement point of Mera Base camp trekking. It takes 6-8 days to reach Mera Peak Base Camp from Lukla. Mera trekking that leads through the traditional Sherpa villages of the Solu Khumbu and the pristine Rhododendron, oak, silver fir, birch and Jennifer’s forest. On the way you can see Mera Glacier and beautiful alpine lake. Beside this Mera Peak is famous for the nice and breathtaking views of different mountains. The summit of the Mera peak is the best view point of the high mountain ranges. View from top - Mt. Everest (8848m) and Mt. Lhotse(8501 m) to the north, Mt. Choyu ( 8201 m), Mt. Manaslu ( 8163 m) to the west, Mt. Kanchanjunga (8586 m), Mt. Makalu ( 8463 m ) to the east.
