The popular one is Mera central Peak while rest of the faces are not popular. Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing made the first climbing of Mera peak 6,461m/21,198ft on 20th May 1953AD. The highlights of this trek include the clear visibility of five major world’s highest mountains (above 8,000m/26,240ft from sea level); Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m), Mt. Makalu (8,481m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m) and many other snowcapped high mountains.

 

Mera Peak lies in the Makalu Barun park on the border of the Khumbu region.

Climbers will use crampons to form the ascent, carry an extended ice axe for support, and use rope as a guide across the glacier on summit day. First-time users of those aids will be instructed of their use below base camp. The ascent from the Mera La is gradual and sustained, before reaching a brief, but straightforward climb up a 40-degree slope to Mera’s central summit.
