Among the 18 peaks in Nepal Mera peak is gathering the popularity from the trekkers for its beautiful landscape. One of the major & the most popular trekking peak in Nepal is possibly the Mera peak located to the south of Everest. Mera Peak Expedition gives you the chance to climb a Himalayan peak while following a non technical route to the summit. The trekking starts from Lukla and pass through Sherpa village which develops and presents the offering of superb scenery, unforgettable experience and the abundant wildlife including the so-called Yeti legendry. Each year, more than 700 foreigners are climbing the peak and the numbers of expedition is projected.

 

About 700 foreign visitors climb the 6654m. To achieve the goal, the mountaineers need the skill and expedition permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. Mera Peak (6,654 m) is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal. Situated at the edge of the Khumbu region, south-east of Everest, the approach trek for Mera peak climbing is through the extremely beautiful Hinku valley. 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. There are many other routes to the peak, but none of them are easy. Some of them require crossing very high and difficult passes. This leads to a true mountaineering experience. In the end, all efforts and hard work is paid off with spectacular scenery as Mera provides one of the finest viewpoints in Nepal.
