Mera peak is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal - It contains three main summits: Mera North, 6,476m; Mera Central, 6,461m; and Mera South, 6,065m.
Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal is considered more adventurous and less challenging than other trekking peaks in that region. 

The first ascent of Mera Peak was made on May 20,1953 by Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing, who appear to have climbed the central summit.

Which Summit we climb - Mera North or Mera Central?
Most of the tour operator organize Mera Peak Central not Mera Peak North Summit. The reason is unclear.

Mera North is actually less steep than Mera Central and easier to climb, and herein may lie the reason: it means the slopes look more likely to avalanche and therefore a better bet for more experienced climbers who move more quickly and are familiar with skills such as ice axe arrest. Do not expect to find any big commercial operators offering climbs of Mera North.

Mera Peak Difficulty

Experienced climbers it is a technically straightforward ascent, the main hurdle being proper acclimatization to the high altitude. Many adventure tour companies offering guided trips to the mountain for clients with little or no mountaineering experience. All climbers are recommended to partake in preparative fitness and altitude training before attempting an ascent.
