“Traveling it leaves you speechless then turns you into a story teller.”

Mera Peak Climbing is an arduous journey which is scheduled to take you to the summit of Mera Peak which is a fabulous mountain peak located at an elevation of 6,461 meters above sea level in the Sagarmatha zone. In an intense yet compensating background, trekkers march after their fantasy goal of Mera Peak by crossing through assortments of vegetation, meagerly occupied Hinku valley. Furthermore, the Sherpa settlements on the way and wonderful perspectives of Himalayas are bound to add excellence to this experience.

Our 18 days Mera Peak Climbing starts with a dynamic flight to the lone hill airstrip of Lukla over high slopes and with the views of scintillating mountains accompanied with some breathtaking scenes all around. As we move on from Lukla, we shall initially cross through several thick backwoods with customary towns, terraced hill slopes and appreciate the magnificent perspectives of Kongde Ri, Khatang and different peaks with an altitude reaching over 7000 meters to arrive at the village settlement of Paiya. Ahead in the trail we shall now cross the pass of Kari La Hill and explore the rhododendron, pine and bamboo woods, later as we trek past various Mani dividers and through soak trails we reach at the vantage point of Hinku Valley. From here onward, we need walk ahead along the edge and to the settlement of Gondishung. Ahead in this Mera Peak Climbing we shall pay a visit to the 200-year-old Lungsumgba Gompa andcontinue on to summer scrubbing region of Tangnag before strolling on the cold moraines to the snout of ice sheets close to Khare. Exploring through the rock strewn and soak trails we shall reach to the base camp of Mera Peak and with some eager enthusiasm we make an attempt to reach the summit of Mera Peak the next day Upon reaching the summit of Mera Peak, one can see the superb perspectives of magnificent Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu, AmaDablam, Kanchenjunga and a few other pinnacles. Following to this accomplishment of our Mera Peak Climbing, we shall now step by step take after a trail back to Lukla and after that end our trek with a flight back to Kathmandu.

The experience to reach the summit of Mera Peak can surely be a memorable experience but do keep in mind that you need to have an above average physical fitness level with some fundamental knowledge about the use of ice hatchet and crampons. Anyone who wants to join in shall consider September to December and March to May as the best seasons for this endeavor. So, contact Himalayan Holyland Treks and Expedition right away to be a part of this exclusive adventure trip to the fabulous Mera Peak.
