About Mera Peak Climbing
Mera Peak 6654 m, is the highest permitted trekking peak in Nepal, rises to the south of Everest, and dominates the cut- between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas and is not truly speaking part of the Khumbu Himal. Mera Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of Mera peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. Also, Mera peak is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal which lies in the Everest region.
The first ascent of Mera Peak was made by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953 but 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 Geroge Lowe, by the now-standard route from the Mera La. By its regular route from Mera La, the ascent is technically uncomplicated; however, after a heavy fall of snow or when the maze of crevasse is open, the way can be long and demanding.
