Mera peak

 

Mera Peak is by far the most renowned trekking peak as it shows you the village culture of Nepal, followed by forests and finally to the summit 6476 m just by trekking all the way. Why Mera peak is special is because it is Nepal’s highest trekking peak and it isn’t called an expedition. This saves you some money as the trekking permits are cheaper than the expedition ones while giving you the same experience of an expedition. It was first climbeb by by J.O.M Roberts  was one of the greatest Himalayan mountaineer-explorers of the twentieth century and Sen Tenzing who was his Sherpa on 20 May 1953 through Mera La. The spectacular views from the top or Mera and also from the high camp will leave you spellbound in the surrounding presence of some of the highest mountains in this World like the Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga.
