Nepal is considered as one of the best destinations for peak climbing. Among them, Mera Peak stands out as this is the highest peak you can marvel. The stunning views of Himalayas it offers from the peak is simply magnificent that will be imprinted in your mind for a lifetime. Although considered as one of the demanding peak climbings, the thrill you get is more rewarding.

Mera peak offers some excellent views of the highest mountain in the world. It is best known for the exceptional view of five more than 8000 m high mountains like Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga. It takes you to the hidden valleys of Khumbu Region. The unspoiled and uninhabited Hinku Valley below Mera peak is admired by many travelers who went up to Mera Peak.

Mera Peak climbing does not require you to have some prior climbing experience. It is suited to both Novice and experienced who want to ascend a snow-covered peak and walk through the forests of alpine woods and lush valleys. However, it is required that you are in a perfect health condition with enough strength, stamina, endurance to complete the strenuous Journey for more than two weeks.
