Mera peak is
known as one of the popular
and easy trekking peaks in Nepal. 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 charming of climbing Mera
Peak, the trek to its Base Camp from Lukla is rewarding
for experiencing little-visited and yet unspoiled
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 above.
The routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the
Mingbo La (5,871m) are quite adventurous and rewarding
for spectacular scenery but none of them are easy.North
Face Glacier from the Mera La The base camp can be
set up at 5,300m on the Hongu side in the moraine
below the ice. Normally, 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 (6,065m) is the most accessible with the Northern
Summit (6,476m), the highest, which can be reached
by skirting the Central Summit (6,461m) to the north
and following snow ridge to its top. Climbing the
middle summit requires ascent up on steep snow and
is slightly technical..
