Peak Climbing 19 Days 6467m.
Mera Peak is the
highest trekking peaks in Nepal . When this is
combined with the fact that it offers unparalleled
views and stunning panoramas. it makes this trekking
peak one of the most sought after mountaineering
trips in Nepal . Mera Peak is never particularly
technically difficult, but there is the altitude
to contend with which makes this an exciting and
challenging trip. We fly to Lukla and trek in
to the Hinku Valley over the Zatrwa La. After
careful acclimatization and some instruction to
ensure that we will be safe on the mountain we
set up the Base Camp at the Mera La. From here
we can make our summit bid and enjoy the views
of the Khumbu Himal to our north.Then we head
north towards of the Mingmo- La Pass, which gives
us access to the Khumbu valley beyond. It also
means that we do not have to retrace our steps,
giving us a circular journey and chance to explore
different regions during the trip.
There are spare
days allocated in the itinerary for acclimatization
and in case of bad weather. The Base Camp is in
a stunning setting but the views from the summit
are perhaps unrivalled than from any of the other
trekking peaks. The panorama takes in Kanchenjunga,
Chamlang and Makalu to the east, while to the
north Everest, the unclimbed south face of Lhotse
and Nuptse&Lhotse ridge are visible. To the
west Ama Dablam and Cho Oyu completely what is
undoubtedly one of the most glorious views in
the whole of Nepal . We take the opportunity,
during the trek in, to make sure that every one
is well acquainted with the technical equipment
that we will be using on the mountain and to brush
up on personal skills.
