From the top of Mera Peak Climbing
There is no short of beautiful peaks in the Himalayas most of which exist in Nepal. But even among such peaks, the Mera Peak is a special one. Standing gloriously at the height of 6461 m. it is one of the highest trekking peaks in the world and certainly the highest of Nepal. It lies on the edge of the Khumbu region overlooking some of highest mountains in the world: Mt. Everest (8848 m.), Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586 m.), Mt. Lhotse (8516 m.), Mt. Makalu (8485 m.), Mt. Cho Oyu (8188 m.), and so on.
Mera Peak is considered one of the safest peaks to climb in Nepal in spite of its height being so great. The ascent is almost straightforward and technically unsophisticated making it one of the easier peaks to climb, too. As a result, it is one the most famous peaks amongst the trekkers and aspiring mountaineers alike. Apart from climbing itself, trekkers are subjected to some of the most beautiful sceneries the Himalayas has to offer. It takes through the famous Khumbu region in a relatively solitary trek providing visitors with an opportunity to absorb the local culture, tradition, and religion in addition to the unembellished and pristine nature. A long walk in the Himalayas along the path flanked by the beautiful pine and juniper trees, exciting ascent on a shining, snow-covered path; needless to say, it is a surreal experience to have. The trek is simply one of the best Nepal has to offer.
