Thanks to Zitha KRAEMER-BA for adding this peak.
Mera Peak lies within the relatively unhabited Hinku and Hongu valleys south of Mt Everest. At 6476m, it is the highest non-expedition peak in Nepal. The walk towards the summit is very long but never really steep; the last 15 to 30 minutes just before the summit are steep.
