Situated in the Everest region to the east of the main Khumbu trekking trails, Mera Peak stands at 6654 m. The original trail into Mera follows the Everest expedition route from the roadhead at Jiri, following the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary. There are high ridges and spectacular deep river gorges to negotiate along the way. To avoid this, most groups fly into the mountain airstrip at Lukla nowadays .
Mera is the highest trekking peak in the Nepal Himalaya, it provides without doubt some of the best high mountain scenery in the region. Rising south of Everest, the peak was first scaled on the 20th May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenjing.
The ascent of Mera is technically straightforward, crampons and ice axes are needed and ropes are fixed where necessary. After the flight into Lukla, the track heads southeast .There are many high rocky ridges and dense forests and streams to negotiate before reaching a pass that takes you into the remote and largely uninhabited Honku Valley. A rest day is taken at Tangnag for exploration and acclimatization with time enough to explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village.
The next day we trek on to Khare (5,099m) at the base of Mera and set up camp. The ascent follows the glacier that leads to Mera la (5,415m) and then on to high camp (overnight to around 2 a.m.) to prepare for an early morning summit. From high camp there is a sweeping vista of Kanchanjangha, Chamlang and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Amadablam and Cho-Oyu to the west. This view has to be one of the best experiences of high mountains anywhere in the world. Providing the weather conditions are good the summit of Mera makes the following morning, before returning to base camp the same day. The route back retraces the route into finally arrive at Lukla for the flight back to Kathmandu. This is an ideal trekking peak for people with little climbing experience although you do need to be in reasonably good shape to attempt it.
