Mera is the highest & most popular trekking peak in Nepal technically as Alpine graded "F" (Facile or easy) that only requires a basic level of mountaineering skills and experience. The fact that it lies in a beautiful, uninhabited region and boasts a summit that gives superb views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kangchenjunga and Cho-Oyu etc.
Asiana Nepal Treks & Expedition has been organizing trips to Mera peak every year with great success rate as our approach route Mera is longer than that provided by most expedition organizers in order to increase to the acclimatization process, exploration of the region. After flying from Kathmandu to Lukla STOL we head south before crossing to a ridge to reach the Hinku valley, and following this north we ascend steadily to the Mera La at 5416m. From our top camp on the glacier above Mera La, a steady low angeled climb leads to a final short and steep section which guards the summit and provides fitting climax to the climb.
After the Mera peak climb, we descend down crossing Zatrawala then to Lukla for flying back to Kathmandu making the trip a great memorable.
