Mera Peak

MeraPeakII.jpg

Mera Peak is the highest of the peaks in Nepal that are defined as 'trekking peaks'. At 6476m it is a very high mountain although it requires little or no technical climbing on its normal route. It is found a little to the East of the main Khumbu, Everest Base camp area and is a far less frequented trail. It is an achievable objective to the well prepared and fit individual as long as they bring reserves of determination and a passion for adventure.

The trek in to the peak provides a fantastic chance to enjoy all aspects of the Himalayan experience. In dropping below the main airstrip at Lukla we see the lush green forests of the lower Khumbu region before crossing high passes and making way up into the more sparse and rocky upper reaches. As we near the Northern approaches of the peak we pass steep glaciers plunging into spectacular lakes behind huge ridges of glacial moraine.

We travel as a group with a team of porters that will inevitably overtake and meet us at the next stop. We will have a mixture of staying in tea houses and lodges before moving to camping further up on the trail and on the mountain. We try to keep our expedition comfortable but also as light and compact as we can.
