Mera Peak

Trip Overview

Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak a in Nepal. Yet despite its height and stunning location, it is not a technically difficult climb but physically very demanding on account of the altitude. The views from here are astounding, with a panorama that takes in Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse in the east to Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse to the north.
