Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak lies within the relatively unhabited Hinku and Hongu valleys south of Mt Everest. At 6476m, it is the highest non-expedition peak in Nepal. The walk towards the summit is very long but never really steep; the last 15 to 30 minutes just before the summit are steep.
The first ascent was on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing. The region was first explored extensively by British expeditions in the early 50s before and after the ascent of Everest. Members of those teams included Edmund Hillary, Eric Shipton and George Lowe.
The trail follows the route from Lukla, ascending the Dudh Koshi river valley, Sagarmatha National Park before entering into the less-frequented wilderness of the Hinku valley. J.O.M. Roberts and Late Tenzing Norgey made the first successful ascent of Mera Peak on 20 May, 1953. From the summit of Mera peak the view is beautiful and visible the peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and Cho oyo. Under favorable conditions, it is possible to climb the peak and descend back on the same day.
