Mera Peak lies to the south of Everest and northeast to Lukla within the relatively inhabited Hinku and Honga valley. It is the highest permitted trekking peak in Nepal. Its popularity comes from the fact that five of the world’s 14 over 8,000 M Mountains are visible in the near distance from the summit.
J.O.M. Roberts and Sen. Tenzing made the first successful ascent of Mera Peak on 20 May 1953. The route they used is still the standard route for the climbing. Mera Peak climbing follow the same trails as Everest trekking route from Jiri by crossing the high hill and spectacular gorges of Everest region before entering the less wilderness of the Hindu valley. Another alternative route to Mera is from south of Lukla to Tangnag, which start after the short flight from Lukla. After that, you can trek up to beautiful and remote Hinku valley.
Here you will see the amazing view of rhododendron and bamboo forest. This provides a fantastic trek which for many will be as memorable as the climb itself. You can always come back over the Zatr La after you’ve climbed Mera.
