Mera Peak (6470m) is situated in the Sagarmatha Region with an altitude of 6476 meters. It is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal. It is technically easy and entails little more than crampons, and ice axe. Mera Peak lies between the famous peak of Mount Everest and Mont Blanc. It contains three main summits: Mera North (6,476 meters), Mera Central (6,461 meters) and Mera South (6,065 meters) as well as a smaller "trekking summit", visible as a distinct summit from the south but not marked on most maps of the region.

Our trek will begin by moving southeast after a short flight to Lukla. We will walk all along a high, rocky edge through dense forests and cross several rivers before reaching the pass. Then the trail takes us to the rural Honku Valley. Trekking in this untamed land of the Himalaya is indeed an impressive experience. At Thaknak, we will rest and walk around the giant moraine and the stunning glacial lake lying north of the village. We will move forward to Khare (5099m) and set up camp. Now we follow the glacier that takes us to Mera la (5415m) and on to the high camp of Mera Peak. From high camp, we can witness a magnificent view of Kanchenjunga, Makalu, and Chamlang to the east. To the north we will see Everest and Lhotse and Cho Oyu and Ama Dablam to the west. This view is one of the best in all of Nepal. Then, we will reach the summit of Mera Peak, the ultimate destination of our trek. After that, we will return back down the valley to Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.
