|Mera Peak is quickly becoming a classic Himalayan climb offering some of the most spectacular mountain scener, pristine forest, and high altitude climbing in the world. This superb trek takes us away from the busy trails leading to Everest Base Camp, and over a little-used pass into the sparsely inhabited Hinku Valley where Mera Peak, the highest trekking peak in Nepal at 6476m, towers over the valley.|
From here we walk through a beautiful high alpine environment, 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 we'll establish base camp. We ascend to he Mera La, moving through crevassed terrain while roped together on moderately angled snow slopes, to a high camp at 5800 metres. From here we make our summit attempt, back-dropped by stunning views of Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Cho Oyu, Chamland and Baruntse. Traversin around to the north we find a softer side to the mountain, and from here it is a non-technical climb which anyone with ice-axe and crampon experience can attempt. If you've acclimatised well, have strong lungs and plenty of willpower, you can reach the summit of this beautiful Himalayan peak and obtain views that encompass four of the five highest mountains of Earth.
