Overview

Trip highlights

Mera Peak is the highest and most popular permitted trekking peak of Nepal situated between the mighty peak of Mount Everest and Mont Blanc. The first ascent of Mera Central was on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing (who was known by the nickname The Foreign Sportsman). Mera Peak climbing is not difficult technically but to combat the altitude is a challenge. So this adventurous trip is suitable for experienced trekkers who are looking for an exciting climbing and who have a dream of standing on a Himalayan summit. From the summit of Mera Peak, the exceptional panoramic view of five highest Himalayas of planet (Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu, Makalu and Kanchanjunga) including Nuptse, baruntse, Ama Dablam and many more snowcapped mountains is surely the unforgettable lifetime memory. 

Our adventurous journey to Meera Peak begins with spectacular Himalayan flight to Lukla. Then we start our trek through the forest, unexploited villages of Hinku Valley, pasture land and alpine topography. The trail offers unrivaled scenery of landscapes and Himalaya’s view, provide an opportunity to encounter rare animals, birds and plants. Itinerary of Mera Peak Climbing is designed to allow plenty of time to acclimatize and goes through off the beaten path and immerse in local culture along the way. Our qualified guides, sherpas, cook, other crew members and quality equipments ensure the journey to Meera Peak more exciting, certain and pleasurable.

Trip reviews

Annapurna round trek was well organized by Raj from BDEx. Gide Amrit Pandey is very skilled and intelligent. Weather on the trek was rather different so we were about ready to turn back from Pissang. Nevertheless next day was clean and we immediately decided to continue. Finally we did Thorang La 5416 m. On the way we saw many people coming back because of deep snow. I am happy that we were lucky to pass Thorang La on second day after it was opened. Many thanks for the trip to BDEx and my guide!!!
