Mera Peak Climb
Mera is one of the highest peaks in Nepal Himalaya and it provides some of the best high views 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 generally technically straightforward requiring little more than crampons and an ice axe, although ropes are fixed where necessary. After a mountain flight from Katmandu to Lukla, the trek begins by heading southeast from Lukla.Trek along high rocky ridges through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that takes you into the remote and largely uninhabited Honku Valley. Trekking and Camping in this wild land of Himalayan pine forests is quite a special experience. A rest day is taken at Tangnag for exploration and acclimatisation time to explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village.The next day we trek on to Khare (5,099m) and set up camp. The ascent follows the glacier that leads to Mera la (5,415m) and then on to high camp to prepare for an early morning summit. From high camp there are some sweeping views of Kanchanjangha, Chamlang and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Amadablam and Cho-Oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions the summit of Mera is made the following morning, before returning to base camp.The route back down the valley and on to Lukla follows the route in. From Lukla a flight is taken back to Kathmandu.This is an ideal trekking peak for people with less climbing experience although you need to be fit.
