Mera Peak Hinku Valley Climbing Difficulty
Climbing Mera Peak is comparatively easier than any other trekking peaks in Nepal. Mera Peak offers many routes in options. Mera Peak via Hinku valley is one of the easiest routes. It is one of the common routes as well. This route is easy and this route offers you enough time to acclimatize. Therefore, altitude will less probably to bother you.
This popular route starts from Lukla and continues to Paiya. Paiya is a village in solukhumbu to reach to the Hinku Valley. This route takes you through Pangaun, Kothe and other traditional villages. The ascent is not sharp and you can easily undertake this. The climbing period of Mera Peak will have some technical difficulties. The final steep slope and ridgeline will have a real effect on your climb. Otherwise, climbing Mera Peak is relatively easier.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness.
Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.

Is Nepal Safe?
No doubt, Nepal is safe for trekking, hiking and mountaineering. The trekking trails are improvised and maintained as well. In many technical sections, ropes have been fixed.
The stains of the devastating earthquake have also been healing up and the decade long armed insurgency has also come to an end along with the implementation of the new constitution.
Tourist Help Desk and Tourism Information Centre have been established at the prominent tourist destinations. Moreover, you will receive a respectable welcome everywhere you go. The Nepali people are simple and kind to you and pay a wonderful hostage to you.
Don’t worry; Nepal is a safe country to visit.

Trip Introduction :

Mera Peak rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hongu Drangkas and does not truly say part of the Khumbu Valley. It calls Hinku Valley. Hinku Valley remains uninhabited although there are kharka in the upper Hinku where Sherpa from the south near Pangkongma, graze their animals during the grass-growing in the monsoon. 

The Hinku Valley is truly a mountain wilderness, a place of massive moraines, glacial lakes and spectacular peaks that include lakes Chamlang and Baruntse. The valley terminates in a crescent of ridges, peak sand passes that includes Amphu Lapcha Base Camp (South) [5650m/18532ft], Amphu Lapcha Base Camp (North) [5300m/17384ft] via Amphu Lapcha La Pass [5845m/19177ft]. All of those Crossing provides spectacular views of world-famous Khumbu glacier and Himalayas. 

Expert Mountaineer at Mera Peak was made by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenzing on 20 May 1953, by the now-standard route from the Mera La. It was the May season during which Roberts made the first western exploration of the Lumding.

Entering the Hongu From the South: Hongu Drangka can be approached from the south via the Kemba La (3,913m/12,912 ft), a pass on the east rim of the Hongu Gorge to the south of the Chamlang Massive. This route is little used, ill-defined and follows a high ridge with little water, the Kal Pokhari Danda.

The Kemba La can be reached from Lukhla in a few days via the Sherpa Village of Pang-kong ma and the Rai settlement of Chemsing. The Kal Pokhari Danda trail climbs to around 4,390m (15,000ft), above the precipitous gorge of the Hongu, before descending through dense bamboo and rhododendron forest to Urpa (4,090m/13,419ft).

A crossing point just beyond that leads north-west to Knogme Dingma and a steep Climb to the east side of the Mera La. The views of Chamlang’s south and west flank from the trail above Kongme are spectacular.
