Mera Peak joins summiting the most noteworthy trekking peak in Nepal with an excellent stroll in up the generally calm Arun Valley. The perspectives from the summit are truly amazing: Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam can all be seen unmistakably and viewing the dawn over the leaders of these mountains is never to be overlooked.
You begin your Mera Peak experience with the invigorating Kathmandu to Lukla flight with awesome perspectives the distance and the hair-raising arriving at Lukla's short runway. Having gathered your group your course takes you south around the mountain to Paiya and Pangom maintaining a strategic distance from the Zatrwa La crossing which at 4250m almost dependably motivations issues with height infection.
This part of the course is peaceful yet intensely cultivated. From Sibuje you branch north heading into perfect bamboo and rhododendron wilderness before achieving your initial rose camp.
The trek then proceeds onward up the Arun valley with a lot of time to adapt before achieving Khare where you will spend two or three days acclimatizing.
The main day of the push to the summit of Mera Peak takes you to the camp at Mera La and from that point you move higher to the stupendous High camp sticking onto a rough outcrop on the edge of the icy mass. Nightfall at high camp is stunning with Himalaya's 8000m monsters gleaming orange as the light blurs.
Summit day is a long hard trudge up the icy mass before a short sharp scramble up an ice-divider to the summit of Mera Peak. Take as much time as the icy will permit to appreciate the view, presumably the best perspective of the Everest extend in Nepal.
In the wake of summiting you slide back to Khare before following down the Arun valley lastly heading over the Zatrwa La pass now completely acclimatized and dropping once more into Lukla.
