Overview

On the south of Mt. Everest is the Mera Peak which is of best summit to have an extensive view of five grand peaks of Himalayas (Makalu, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Kantega, Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Chamlang, Baruntse and Kangchenjunga) and this is one of the popular treks between mountaineers. Although the trek is not extremely difficult, it still is an adventurous one.


You'll encounter many beautiful things during your journey towards Mera Peak. These include, extremely stunning, Rhododendron Forests,  an attractive remote village, Pangkongma, originated via Everest massif, Dudh Kosi or Milk River, moraine Tangang and also, Mera Glacier, climbing through which we will have first glimpses of few of the peaks mentioned above.


This trek is tough only because one thing, (which we will mostly focus on also), that is, acclimatizing to the high altitude and varying temperatures of the area. This is the prerequisite for this trek. We will start our trek journey through easy routes, crossing the Pang Kongma La, entering the forested, Hinku valley, seeing the Chamlang and Baruntse mounts. We will spend time in tea-houses and tents at different Campsites.
