Mera Peak is the highest mountain in Nepal (6,476m, 22,476ft) accessible to people with no significant mountaineering experience. Additionally, it offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery, pristine forest, and high altitude climbing in the world.
The journey to this astonishing mountain begins with a hair-raising flight into the small town of Lukla at 2,800 m (9,184 ft). From Lukla a six-day trek through Nepal’s most pristine forests past beautiful alpine lakes, give us the chance to begin acclimatising to the ever-increasing altitude.
Base camp is at the foot of the Mera Glacier with two more camps, the first a further 300 m higher on the Mera Glacier, and the second the other side of the Mera crevasse field at 5,800 m. From this 3rd camp it is a steady climb to reach the summit, with awe-inspiring views of Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north, and Ama Dablam and Cho Oyu to the west.
