2018 Adventura Mera Peak Trek

Among the trekking peaks in Nepal, Mera Peak (6461m) is the highest in altitude. Although it is the highest it is the easiest to climb as it has less technical climbing. However, you need the technical skills and be very physically fit to climb it. It is the most exciting and scenically very beautiful trekking peak, located on the edge of the Khumbu region. You have chances of viewing the world's stunning 8000 metre mountains: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse and Cho-Oyu from the summit as well as many 7000m peaks. Our Mera Peak climbing itinerary has been carefully designed to allow gradual acclimatisation. The trek in is through the Hinku valley which has beautiful forests and mountains along the way.

A donation is made to the Adventura Foundation for every client that treks with us in Nepal.

Adventura Mera Peak trek from £2,645

This trek begins with an “eye opening” flight to Lukla at 2800 metres. Trek highlights include reaching the top of the majestic Mera peak, officially the highest of trekking peak in Nepal, where you find yourself looking down and towards many magnificent natural Nepali landscapes. You will have a direct view of the southern face of the Everest from here. Moreover, you have the chance of seeing the rarest glances of the watershed area of Khumbu, the wild and heavily wooded valleys Hinku and Hongu from this heavenly place. In this route to the Mera Peak, you will experience the rarest chance of venturing through little visited and as yet a completely unspoilt region of Nepal where the hillsides still remain densely forested.

As you set to trek towards Mera Peak you will ascend above 21,000 feet and look down on the whole earth. You will be walking through Hongu and Hinku valleys which have remained uninhabited although the Kharkas which are places for cattle grazing in the Upper Hinku basin where Sherpa from the South, near Pangkoma are occasionally seen grazing their cattle during the grass growing monsoon season. As you pass through the upper Hongu basin, you will walk through a mountainous wilderness. You will also walk through some beautiful forests, massive moraines, glacial lakes and spectacular peaks that include Charmlang and Baruntse as well as up the Charpate Himal Glacier.
