Trip Introduction

Mera Peak Climbing takes us to the summit of Mera Peak 6,461m which is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. Mera Peak is more prefer during the spring and autumn seasons as it’s the best time to climb the mountain for its astonishing views of the Himalayan Vista. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga mountain which are five mountains with more the 8,000m high peaks are visible from the summit. Mera Peak climbing is one of the excellent options for anyone with moderate mountaineering experience in Nepal. It is a challenging trekking peak too due to its elevation, but the technical mountaineering skills requirement is very basic.
