Phaplu Mera Peak Climbing

Mera peak is a popular trekking peak in Nepal. It makes journey unforgettable experience. Mera peak is located south of the Everest in the Hinku valley and it is relatively quite easy to climb the peaks. In the trail, you will see superb scenery and abundant wildlife. You may also catch the rare glimpse of legendary Yeti.

Mera Peak follows the footsteps of the previous trekking with slightly variation. We commence our trekking from Solu region which is quite calm and soothing. You should cross the Trakshindo La before walking down towards the Dudhkoshi River. We trek along this river and follow north through terraced hill sides and small village.

Phaplu Mera Peak ClimbingClimbing Mera peak is getting more popular each year due to the extraordinary and stunning scenery it offers. Moreover, you do not need any previous mountaineering experience if you are physically fit and have an enthusiasm for adventure. Neither has it demanded technical climbing. This is the highest peak allowed for climbing in Nepal. The climb is definitely a strenuous one being the highest peak, but the slopes rarely exceed 30 degree and hence it is technically straightforward.

The peak is situated at the edge of the Khumbu region, south-east of Everest, the approach trek for Mera peak climbing is through the extremely beautiful Hinku valley. This valley is situated below the Mera peak and the valley is unspoiled and uninhabited. The valley is one of the wildest and most beautiful valleys in Nepal with its massive moraines, glacial lakes and beautiful mountain views.

It is a fully supported camping trek with the accommodation in twin sharing tents and food being prepared by our camp cook. You just have to carry light day pack, other loads and luggage will be carried by porters.
