Mera Peak Climbing is one of the famous activities in the Himalaya ranges of Nepal. The peak lies in the Mahalangur section and Barun sub-section of the Everest Region of Nepal. Standing 6,476m/21,246ft tall, the Mera Peak is classified as trekking as well as climbing peak. This peak has three summits, Mera North [6,476m], Mera Central [6,461m/21,197ft] and Mera South [6,065m/19,898ft]. All of the peaks are suitable for expedition as well as trekking.
The summit of the Mera Peak provides views of five of the mountains that are above 8,000 metres tall; Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and Kanchenjunga. These five peaks are also the most famous and active routes for mountain expedition. These five peaks including Mera provide explorers the content of conquering the summit of their favourite mountain peak.
There are a few routes that access the summit of Mera Peak . Among them, the standard route at the North consists of high altitude glaciers that need to be crossed in order to get to the top of the peak. If weather conditions are favourable, it’s easier to get to the top through this route. Besides, the West and the South faces are comparatively more difficult and technical ones.
Mountain climbers are recommended to get pre practices before attempting to conquer the summit. Favourable weather and snow conditions let the route go easy. However, these conditions are always likely to change.
