Mera Peak Climbing - 14 Days

Mera Peak climbing is a mountain in the Mahalangur section, Barun sub-section of the Himalayan and administratively in Nepal  Sagarmatha Zone,Solukhumbu District. At 6,476 metres (21,247 ft) it is classified as a Trekking Peak. It contains three main summits: Mera North, 6,476 metres (21,247 ft); Mera Central, 6,461 metres (21,198 ft); and Mera South, 6,065 metres (19,898 ft), as well as a smaller “trekking summit”, visible as a distinct summit from the south but not marked on most maps of the region.

he region was first explored extensively by British expeditions in the early 50s before and after the ascent of Everest. Members of those teams included Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, Eric Shipton and George Lowie.

The first ascent of Mera Central was on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing (who was known by the nickname The Foreign Sportsman).Roberts was heavily involved in establishing the trekking industry in Nepal in the early 1960s. He was posthumously awarded the “Sagarmatha (Everest) National Award” by the government in May 2005.

The height of Mera is often given as 6,654 metres (21,831 ft), and claimed to be the highest trekking peak. This figure actually points to nearby Peak 41, which was mistakenly named Mera in a list of Himalayan peaks, and the figures were copied to the official trekking peak list as they were, including the wrong location coordinates.

Mera is a 6476m tall snow-capped mountain peak in Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal, and is a suitable peak to climb for those looking for a short but very adventurous climbing trip. Summiting this magnificent peak requires a 14-day trip, starting from Kathmandu, along with an experienced mountain guide and the appropriate climbing gear.

This Mera Peak climbing trek allows you to explore the typical villages of local ethnic groups such as Sherpa, Rai, Magar and Gurung. We will also pass all the beautiful terraced fields and flowing mountain rivers before reaching Khare, the last settlement of the region.
