Mera Peak (6674 m) lies within the Himalayas of the Everest Region of Nepal, is one of the popular and highest trekking peaks. Mera Peak is classified as one of the NMA trekking peaks for peak climbing in Nepal. Climbers observe the major five 8000 m peaks.
Mera peak climbing is one of the most popular and adventurous journeys to the high land of Nepal. This is the highest trekking peak in Nepal standing with the height of 6461 m above sea level and offering a better challenge to the beginners of the mountain climbing. Mera Peak is classified as one of the NMA trekking peaks for peak climbing in Nepal. Climbers observe the major five peaks with over 8000 m from the summit after completing of Mera peak Climbing. They are Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. Several other beautiful peaks and mountains can also be viewed and enjoyed from its summit. Comparatively, Mera Peak is easier for the climbers to experience expedition in Nepal. The route from its north face is easier for the new Peak Climbers. This north face involves the walking through high altitude glacier. The ease of reaching this elevation might be a risk but, the weather and the condition of snow must be good for safety and success for the summit. Choosing the route from West or South face for Mera Peak Climbing must be the difficult ones compared to the north face. These both routes are technically not sound for new climbers. The route of this trek and expedition lies in Everest Region which is also known as Khumbu Area of Nepal’s mountaineering.
