Mera Peak (6,476 M) is claimed to be the highest trekking peak. Mera Peak is situated in Makalu Barun National park in Sagarmatha zone. Mera peak is both classed as trekking and climbing peak. This trek is less popular then Everest base camp treks, so if you are looking for a bit of an extra challenge on your adventure; trek routes that have less crowd and climbing a mountain that is less to non technical with the feast of panoramic view of the Himalayas, then this definitely is an adventure to consider. Mera Peak have the most widest and beautiful views of the Himalayas solely because of geographic location in the region.
