Mera Peak Climb

Company : Exodus Travels
Activities: Hiking & Trekking Tours / Tours
Duration: 3 weeks to 3 weeks
Approx Costs: 3000+ to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

A tough but rewarding expedition, which takes us away from the trails leading to Everest Base Camp to the sparsely-inhabited Hinku Valley.

We walk through a beautiful high alpine environment, where Mera Peak, the highest trekking peak in Nepal at 6461m, towers over the valley. The ascent is a non-technical climb, which anyone with ice-axe and crampon experience can attempt.

With good acclimatisation and plenty of willpower, you can reach the summit of this beautiful Himalayan peak. At the summit we are rewarded with amazing views of five of the six highest mountains in the world - Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu: which makes all the hard work worthwhile.
