Introduction

Mera Peak contains three main summits; Mera North, (6476m/21247 ft.), Mera Central (6461m/21198 ft.), and Mera South, (6065m/19898 ft.). Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga can be seen clearly from the summit of Mera Peak. 


Through, HST Adventures the Mera Ski Peak package is carefully designed with the best trekking itinerary, accommodation and logistics. Our Sherpa guides/trekking staffs are well known and familiar with the route and climbing program. Climbing and ascent to Ski in Mera Peak starts from Lukla flight from KTM and 5-6 days trekking follows through the forest, river and mountain villages. The nearest town form the Mera Base Camp is Khare situated at height of 5045m. It takes about 45 minutes from the base camp to Khare, which has well-managed hotels, Wi-Fi and electricity. Mera Peak is the best option for ski mountaineering and Heli skiing, which do not require any technical mountaineering skills. 


We have some expertise as the international ski instructors who have summited Mera peak and ski experience of more than 10-12 times.
