    Mera Peak (6470m) is the Nepal's highest permitted trekking peak,located in Makalu Barun National Park, rises to the south of Everest and dominates the cut- between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas and is not truly speaking part of the Khumbu Himal.

The small city of Lukla is the commence point of trek. It takes 8 days to reach Mera Peak Base Camp from Lukla. The trial goes through the pristine Rhododendron, oak, silver fir, birch and Jennifer’s forest. On the way you can see Meera Glacier and beautiful alpine lake. Beside this Mera Peak is famous for the nice and breathtaking view of different mountains. The summit of the peak is the best view point of the high mountain range. View of Mt. Everest (8848m) and  Mt. Lhotse(8501 m) to the north , Mt. Choyu ( 8201 m) , Mt. Manaslu( 8163 m)  and Mt. Amadamlam ( 6812 m) to the west, Mt. Kanchanjunga (8586 m) , Mt. Makalu ( 8463 m ) to the east.

  The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953, by the now standard route from the Mera La. By its regular route from Mera La, the ascent is technically uncomplicated; how ever after a heavy fall of snow or when the maze of crevasse are open, the way can be long and demanding. Far above the most rewarding aspect of a trip to Mera is chance to venture into little-visited and as yet unspoiled region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested.

There are many approaches to Mera; none are easy and some require the crossing of high and difficult passes, making a trek to the peak a real mountaineering adventure with spectacular and finest viewpoints of Nepal. The simple way to Mera Peak is from Lukla after half an hour flight from Kathmandu with beautiful Mountain View.
