Mera Peak Climbing is an admiring climbing trip in the Everest region of Nepal. The peak is located beyond the Everest base camp side. Mera Peak is a gentle peak to climb, however, the heap of snow and long route of walking make the Mera peak climbing trip challenging. For those, who are seeking an adventurous peak climbing trip in Nepal can have a lifetime memory during the trip.

Mera peak climbing trip begins from the tiny airstrip of Lukla after flying from Kathmandu. It goes through the different trail than the main Everest base camp trail. It is less trafficked and off-the-beaten trail. Meeting further camping crew, you move towards the Hinku valley, which is also known as the hidden valley. Climbing equipment should be used properly as the route is usually highly covered by the snow and it is the windy route. Mera base camp (5300m) and high camp (5780m) are set to complete this peak climbing successfully. Branded climbing equipment and perfect camping services are provided by the company. Following the trail, you reach to the top, from where the views of Everest (8848m), Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Kangchenjunga, Baruntse and others can be explored from the close-up point. Climbing down to the base camp, you trek down all the way to Lukla and fly further to Kathmandu.
