Trip Introduction

Mera Peak, probably the highest peak of Nepal among the other permitted trekking peaks, rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas and is not truly speaking part of the Khumbu Himal. It should also be noted that there is a discrepancy between the official height given by the NMA (6.654m) and the Schneider Map (6.476m).
