Mera peak climbing is gradually becoming popular among trekkers and novice climbers to have the feeling of hiking and climbing on snow and experiencing trekking in remote part of Khumbu region. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit.
