Mera Peak with the height of 6,461 meters above the sea level is one ideal peak for mountain climbing in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is situated in Mahalangur range of the Himalayas, the same range where Mt. Everest is situated. Standing prominently between the wildernesses valleys of Hinku and Hongu, Mera Peak lies to the south of Everest and to the north-east of Lukla and is the second most popular Trekking Peak after Island Peak. The summit offers the overwhelming view of five 8000m peaks: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Several other beautiful peaks and mountains can also be seen from the summit – of course, weather permitting.

The route from the north is suitable even for climbers with less experience. However, it involves crossing a glacier at high altitude. The western rise as well as the south face is more difficult and suitable for skilled climbers. The normal route is still judiciously straight-forward with minimal technical difficulties. The main obstacle is the proper acclimatization to the altitude. Though Mera Peak is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal, it would also be suitable for a climber visiting the Himalayas for the first time given a sufficient level of physical fitness. Keen hill walkers with some experience using crampons and ice-axe are well suited for this adventure.
