The Mera Peak Climb is a great transition from trekking to mountaineering. It is rated as PD (“peu difficile” or “slightly difficult”) on the International French Adjectival System (IFAS). It requires little technical skills. The climb to Mera Peak begins with a trek from Lukla near Mt. Everest. From Lukla, the expedition passes through villages and forests, on the Everest Base Camp trail, eventually leading to black mountain ridge (“kalo himal”) and Hinku valley with its beautiful surrounding forest. Above Hinku valley, the surroundings are glaciers with snow and rocks where Mera Base Camp resides. After summiting Mera Peak, the adventure returns to Lukla then Kathmandu. You are sure to enjoy this Mera Peak Climbing adventure.
