Mera peak is considered one of the major and popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The trail winds among forests of pine and rhododendron in this remote and uninhabited valley, which leads to Mera Base Camp. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. Besides the charm of climbing Mera Peak, the trek to its base camp from Lukla is rewarding for experiencing little-visited and as yet unspoilt region of Nepal with densely forested hill sides. There are several approaches to the base camp besides the easy and normal route which is mentioned below. The routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780 m) and the Mingbo La (5,871 m) provide some the most adventurous trekking with spectacular scenery through remote glaciated valleys and passes.

North Face Glacier from the Mera La: The base camp can be set up at 5415 m near Mera La on the Hongu side in the moraine below the ice. From here a high camp is set at 5,800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera Glacier. The high camp proves to be one to the most glorious viewpoints in Nepal offering the panoramic views of Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse sweeping around from the east and Amadablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west. The giant faces of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse appear in the north. There are three main summits which are climbable without much difficulty. The south summit (6,065 m) is the most accessible with the Northern Summit (6,654 m), the highest, which can be reached by skirting the Central Summit (6,461 m) to the north and following snow ridge to its top. Climbing the middle summit requires ascent up on steep snow and is more technical. Mera North is straight-forward to climb.

Mingbo La pass to Everest Base Camp: Return through the upper Hongu valley and over Mingbo La pass into the Imja valley on the Everest Base Camp route. From here a visit can be made to Everest Base camp and return to Lukla. This is a very high altitude trek through glaciated valleys with possibilities of being stranded in adverse weather condition. Only strong, well equipped, groups should attempt this route. Please let us know if you want to use this route to exit. Amphu Laptsa pass to Everest Base Camp: Return trek through the upper Hongu valley and then over the high pass of Amphu Laptsa to come out at Chukung in the upper Imja river valley near Island Peak. From here a visit can be made to Everest Base camp and return to Lukla. This is a very high altitude trek through glaciated valleys with possibilities of being stranded in adverse weather condition. Only strong, well equipped, groups should attempt this route. Please let us know if you want to use this route to exit.
