Overview

Mera Peak is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal. It stands to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing made the first successful ascent on 20 May 1953. The trek starts from Kathmandu with a drive to Jiri and a trek to Lukla at 2800m. This is a good way to begin as it helps develop physical fitness and is excellent for altitude acclimatization. But most of the people take a flight to Lukla and stay there overnight. From Lukla to Chutanga we walk through rhododendron and pine forests.
Crossing the Zatra-La pass the trek is very steep but the reward is a view of Cho Oyu, the world's 6th highest mountain and the Numbur Himal. We now descend into the Mera Valley. From Chatrabu, after a walk of about around one and half hours we get the best view of Mera's South, Central and North peaks. Then we go through more forests, of rhododendron, bamboo and pine to reach Kothe (Hinku khola) from where the trekking is easier to Khare Base Camp, at 5000m. From Khare to Mera-La it is steep, but from Mera-La to our high camp at 5800m is easier, though we must take care as there are many deep crevasses. We will follow the 'standard' route to the summit, reaching the Central peak and, perhaps, the slightly higher North summit.

Again this is a short stretch in terms of distance but we will take our time and adopt a steady pace to ensure that we allow for the gain in altitude. From the Mera La we continue up to establish a high camp at 5800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera glacier. From here we are treated to superb views of many of the Himalayan giants in the surrounding region. Above us, we can see the Central Summit which stands at the head of a wide glacier flanked by two ridges.
