This is the highest peak in Nepal that does not require a climbing permit (6,476m/21,190ft). From the summit there are spectacular views of several 8000 meter plus peaks, such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu. You will also visit a number of Sherpa villages in this mountainous region and observe their traditions and culture. We will stop at numerous teahouses, experience overnight camping plus a true climbing expedition. The trek follows trails within the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.
We begin with a short scenic mountain flight to Lukla and then trek through various Sherpa villages, conspicuous by their Gompas (monasteries), chortens (engraved stones in Sanskrit) and multi-colored Tibetan prayer flags. We will follow remote and less trekked routes through the Hinku and Hunku valleys. We then climb up to Mera Peak Base Camp, summit the peak and experience the rush of standing on top of a mountain. Climbing Mera Peak is not a technical climb with slopes not greater than 30 degrees. Fixed ropes will guide you to the summit as you follow in your guide’s footsteps.
