Mera Peak 6476m, is known as one of the highest among Nepal’s trekking peaks, it is a high of 6476 m peak. Mera Peak rises to the south of Everest and dominates the beautiful and remote valley of Hinku and Hongu. The first ascent of this Mera peak was made by Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing Sherpa on 20 May 1953.
The trek for the climb begins in Lukla where we take a flight from Kathmandu. From Lukla, we head south-east cross the 4,600m / 15,000ft. high Zatrawa La to enter into Hinku Valley and follow the Hinku Drangka (stream) which gradually climbs to kharkas (pastures) of Dupishung and Lungsamba passing Kusum Kanguru 6,369m/20,896ft on our left. Onward, the valley steepens and our trail follow the Dig glacier – passing a glacier lake formed at the foot of 6769m/22,208ft Tang-nag Tse. We stop here to get more acclimatized and explore the Hinku glacier and approach to Kangtega 6,782m/22,244ft and impressive looking peak which overlooks the Tengpoche monastery situated on the other side of the mountain. From Digkharka the path climbs more steeply to Khare 5099m / 16,729ft – our base camp for the climb.
From our base camp at Khare, we climb to Mera-La 5415m / 17767ft and set up a high camp. Above Mera la, we climb to 5800m./ 19028ft and set up another camp for the summit attempt on the following day. This camp provides one of the best view of the Eastern Himalaya range of Nepal which include Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Baruntse, Nuptse, Lhotse, Everest, Cho-Oyu, Amadablam and Kangtega.
