The classic 6000m plus climbing peak in Nepal; Mera Peak is one the most popular climbing peaks in Nepal permitted by Nepal Mountaineering Association. Mera Peak 6654m is considered as a beginners  climbing peak in the Himalayas which lies at the edge of famous Khumbu region of Nepal. However, this strenuous climb needs the experiences of basic ice works. Five enthusiastic climbers from Denmark; Karsten, Mark, Jesper, Allan and Soeren  were on the summit of Mera Peak with experienced team of Explore Himalaya on October 25, 2012.  They chose the perfect time of the year to climb this ideally located peak. Mera Peak is a straight forward easy climb for the technically fit climbers.

High Camp and Summit: Mera Peak.

However, the altitude acclimatization could be a beatable  hurdle. The Danish team used the standard northern route to the peak walking through the high altitude glaciers. Considering the good weather and the snow conditions in the Himalayas, summiting Mera peak has no other barriers. The way to the Mera peak initially starts with the short flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Then, as soon as the Danish team enter the Khumbu valley the exhilarating voyage through the Sherpa homeland begins.  Danish climbers were totally cooperated by the natural conditions and their trekking guide through out their route via Namche, Tengboche, Kharka, Tagnag, Khare and finally to the summit of Mera Peak. The summit of Mera Peak offers the rare views of five 8000m plus peaks ( Everest 8848m, Lhotse 8516m, Cho Oyu 8201m, Makalu 8481m and Kanchenjunga 8586m) with several other mountain peaks including Mt. Baruntse and Mt. Chamlang, Mt. Taweche and Mt. Ama Dablam .
