Since then, Mera peak has always been people’s favorite. The trail to Mera peak passes through unique Sherpa settlements, lush forests, suspension bridges, traditional Gompas, monasteries, and many more. However, an awe-inspiring view of Mt Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho-oyu from its summit is one of the finest attractions of this climb.

Insurance policy- high mountains are not the kind of places you want to travel without an insurance policy. Travel insurance has become part of trekking requirements. If you ever have some medical emergencies your travel insurance will have to bear it and that is why you need to mention the details about the places you are going to and the altitudes you will be reaching.
Valid visas/passports – all foreigners except Indians are required to have valid visas and passports to enter Nepal. The visa application will need the passport having a minimum of 6 months of validation along with your passport size photo. You will receive your visa upon your arrival at Tribhuvan international airport
