Overview of Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak is the most popular and the highest permitted trekking peak, and it lies to the south of Everest. The trail leading to the summit consists of the two valleys, Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. We choose the best season and have made the best itinerary for Mera Peak Climbing. The heavily wooded and watershed valleys make the peak venturing to experience the amalgamation of snow, forests, and the valley. Nepal has showcased the pristine and serene beauty of nature.

Both the Hongu and Hinku valleys are remote and not habited land up to Kharka in the Upper Hinku basin, where Sherpa from the South, near Pangkongma, is the place for grazing animals during the rainy season. The upper Hongu Basin is mountain madness where massive moraines and glacial lakes are present, including Charmlang and Baruntse.
