Mera Peak is one of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. It is situated on the edge of the famous Khumbu Region, which
is dominated by Mount Everest. Although very high, Mera is a straightforward climb and is frequently
ascended by groups and individuals who are fit and have an out-going sense of adventure.
To start, we take a flight to Lukla and begin our trek through beautiful forested hillsides and over several passes before climbing up to the Mera La. After the climb, we descend directly to Lukla via the Zatrwa La pass. From the top of Mera, we will have a clear view of Kangchenjunga and Makalu to the east and Everest appearing over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north if weather permits.
