Mera Peak & Jiri Trekking

The Sagarmatha National Park was established in 1976 under National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act. It is located in the Himalayas of Eastern Nepal. The highest peak of the world, Mt. Everest dominates the National Park.  Sagarmatha National Park is home for some endangered mammals like Himalayan Black Bear, Red Panda, Thars etc. and birds like Red-billed chough, Yellow-billed chough etc.

Sherpas that follow Tibetan Buddhism are major inhabitants of the region. They focus on agriculture and trade for their living.

Mera Peak (6476m.) is the highest trekking peak located in the Sagarmatha Zone. It lies in the southeast of the Everest. The first ascent to Mera Peak was made in 1953, May 20.  The Mera Peak trek is technically a straightforward ascent. Though, trekker sought after Mera Peak, adjusting in the high attitude of Mera Peak becomes a challenge for some. Splendid panorama of Makalu, Kanchanjunga, Cho Oyu and Everest can be seen from the Mera Peak.
