Mera peak stands at the height of 6462 m above sea level. It is one of the highest trekking peaks in Nepal. The mountain resides in province no.1 of SoluKhumbu district.
A benefit of the Mera peak expedition is that there is no technical requirement. But reaching the summit is still challenging, so you should not underestimate the climb.
The trails are technically straightforward, taking you to high elevations. So, the mountaineers are exposed to extreme temperatures and weather, increasing the risk of high elevation illnesses.
Some illnesses are Acute Mountain sickness (AMS), High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), and High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE). These problems increase the difficulty level of the Mera peak expedition.
You cross one of the high passes, Zatrwa la Pass, in this expedition that lies 4610 m above sea level. You get the panorama view of the magnificent peaks of the Everest region from here.
Climbing the tallest trekking peak is not easy as it seems. You will face various difficulties that might slow you down. The trails are demanding as it is rough and vertical.
The climbers might also get badly injured or sick during the climb requiring rescue. There is no saying when helicopter recovery might come in handy, so Helicopter rescue from Mera peak is possible.
