Trip Overview Mera Peak (6654 m.)

Mera Peak Climbing
Mera peak  (6654 m.)situated in Khumbu region and to the south of Mt. Everest, standing prominently between the wilderness valley of Hinku and hongu. Mera peak has two summits the easier one attempted by most climbers, is accessed by taking a higher line to the eastern summit with its steep last 20m or so. The true summit can be either be reached by a drop and traverse, beyond many people by this stage, or by initially taking a westerly lower line out of the high camp for steep haul to the true summit. Its high altitude must be respected, however, and acclimatization must be done at the recommended pace ideally reaching the summit. Many people fail to reach the summit because of; there is no quick way to climb a mountain of this height. Its popularity comes from fact that five of the world tallest mountains are visible in the near distance from the summit and getting to the summit from base camp is considered not more than a mountain walk across a crevassed glacier.

Mera Peak offers a panoramic view of Chamlang, Kangchenjunga, Makalu, and Baruntse in the east and the peaks of Cho-Oyu, Ama Dablam and Kangtega to the west. Everest can be viewed to the north over the massive unclimbed south face of Lhotse and the Nuptse/Lhotse ridge. Under favourable conditions, it is possible to climb the peak and descend back on the same day.
