Mera Peak (6476m), officially the highest of Nepal’s permitted trekking peaks, rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu. Although very high, Mera is a straightforward climb and is frequently ascended by groups and individuals whose only climbing qualifications are that they are fit and have an out-going sense of adventure.
This is a rewarding expedition and a tough challenge, providing glorious views of Nepal and a vista that takes in Kangchenjunga and Makalu to the east and Everest appearing over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north. To the west stand the spires of Ama Dablam and Kang Taiga and in the distance is the mighty bastion of Cho Oyu. This is a fine panorama of many of the world’s highest peaks.
Best time of year: April to May and October to November
Grade: Very tough
Number of days: 23
