This is the most popular trekking peak in Nepal and although it is also the highest, it is one of the easiest, too, being considered a “walk up” in good weather and if the snow conditions are not too soft.
Those who undertake this trek do need to be conversant with the use of an ice-axe and crampons, as well as being fit, but instruction in their use will be given in Kathmandu, and also at the base camp near Mera La, if required.
Summitting Mera is a highly rewarding experience, providing some wonderful views encompassing Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, with Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse to the north. Looking westward, the spires of Ama Dablam and Kang Taiga are clearly visible.
The climb itself necessitates establishing a high camp at 5800 m on the Mera Glacier, before attempting the summit on the next day. The ascent is via the north face glacier and is a steady push to the summit ridge, which leads, somewhat precariously, to the top.
