The bulk of Mera, 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 Drangkas.
Mera (Peak) is a chance to venture into a little visited and as yet un spoilt region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested and a need to be self-sufficient is essential. Additionally, it offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery, pristine forest, and high altitude climbing in the world. We start this climb with a hair-raising flight into the small town of Lukla at 2,800 m (9,184 ft). From there it is a six-day trek, with plenty of acclimatization days to keep us healthy at our ever-increasing altitude, through some of Nepal’s most pristine Rhododendron, oak, silver fir and birch forests, past beautiful alpine lakes, and finally up to the foot of Mera Glacier where well establish base camp. We will set up two more high camps, the first over 300 m above B.C. on the Mera Glacier, and the second after we cross the Mera crevasse field at 5,800 m. From here it is a steady and steep climb to reach the summit, with awe-inspiring views of Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north, and Ama Dablam and Choyu to the west.
The trip was beautiful, it was really a nice way to see the himalayas. For us it was a challenging trip, both physically and psychologically. It was a tough climb, people say Mera is not that difficult but many people tried and couldnt accomplish and our guide Pasang Sherpa, this man is the best without him I would never be able to bring the best out of me and summit this beautiful mountain.” – Dustin & Kristina, Croatia
