Mera Peak Climbing is popular and highest trekking peaks in Nepal. Mera Peak is situated at the height of 6470m. It has three different summits – Mera North (6470m), Mera Central (6461m) and Mera South (6065m).

On May 20, 1954, the British army officer James Owen Merion Roberts and Sen Tenzing where two climbers who successfully summited Mera Peak Central. Mera North was first summited by three Frenchmen Marcel Joly, L Honills and G Baus.

Most of the peak climbers summit Mera North due to its highest altitude among other Mera peaks. Journey to Mera Peak Climbing starts with the adventurous flight to Lukla, trekking to Mera Peak Base Camp (5400m) following the east of Lukla, and on the final day summit to Mera Peak.

Starting the trekking from Lukla, routes are covered with rhododendron flowers (in spring), silver fir, and Jennifer.
