Mera Peak Climbing begins with a short scenic flight from Kathmandu to reach at Lukla, a Sherpa town with a small airstrip where walk leads beyond villages towards a remote and isolated country with the climb over Zatwar-la pass towards hidden areas of Inkhu valley and then at Mera Peak base camp for the climb.
