Mera Peak

Mera Peak (6,654 m) is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal. It stands to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. It offers a panoramic view of Chamlang, Kangchenjunga, Makalu, and Baruntse in the east and the peaks of Cho-Oyu, Amadablam and Kangtega to the west. Everest can be viewed to the north over the massive unclimbed south face of Lhotse and the Nuptse/Lhotse ridge. Under favorable conditions, it is possible to climb the peak and descend back on the same day. The climb to Mera rewards you a chance to venture into a less visited and unspoiled region of Nepal where the hillsides are still densely forested and the pleasure of going above 6,000m. Though climb to Mera peak is technically straightforward, but assists to its route are blocked by high passes, adding to the experience as on full-scale expedition.

PEAK CLIMBING ITINERARY

Day 1 - Welcome to Kathmandu 1350m: Arrive in Kathmandu airport. You'll be met at the airport by our representative and transfer to hotel.

Day 2 - Kathmandu 1350m: The day to explore the sights of Kathmandu and the valley with a tour guide. You will be visiting temples, stupas, secret site, architecture and cultural things.

Day 3 - Fly to Lukla, trek to Chutenga 3050m: We take the spectacular 35-minute flight to Lukla 2850m. a growing Sherpa town with plenty of lodges, and so is a gentle introduction to rural Nepal. After organising the loads and the porters, we start our adventure to Chutenga, a pleasant camping spot.

Day 4 - Rest day at Chutenga 3050m: We are already above 3000m and so a rest day is necessary to begin acclimatizing. This is a great chance to relax, meet the crew, to take a walk in the forest.

Day 5 - Thuli Kharka 4300m: A tough, long day of 6 to 7 hours walking but can be made as we have a day rest on previous day. We climb steeply up the Kalo Himal Ridge to a prayer flag-bedecked notch at 4444m then gently climb to the main Zatrwa La 4600m, which separates the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley. Under fresh snow this pass can be quite difficult, especially for the porters. The views across the Dudh Koshi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are impressive, as is the view across the rolling foothills east of the Hinku Valley. Half an hour below the pass is a huge boulder, which marks our campsite, Thuli Kharka.

Day 6 - Kothe 3700m: Half-day walk, and virtually all downhill. The path descends to a fine vantage point of the Hinku valley, with impressive views of the south face of Mera Peak. Entering the forest once again, the trail drops steeply down into the Hinku valley. The forests of the Hinku valley are a delight to walk through, full of the tall Himalayan pine and rhododendron trees. We make camp by the banks of Hinku Drangka (river) at Kothe. Initially, as we head up the Hinku Valley, there are stunning views of Peak 43 and Kusum Khangaru.

Day 7 - Thang Nak 4350m: A pleasant day and we have beautiful views of Thang Nak 14,271ft, sits in a wide U-shaped valley, dwarfed by the surrounding mountains. There is a simple settlement here where the crew can restock some supplies.5-6hrs up and down hills climbs finally brings us to Thang Nak.

Day 8 - Thang Nak 4350m: A well-deserved rest day, that will further aid our acclimatization. On this day we can do a walk to the beautiful moraine-dammed lake, the Sabai Tsho, which is hidden behind the Sabai Glacier or climbing up onto an out laying peak of Kusum Khangaru, where we can reach an altitude of nearly 5,000 meters.

Day 9 - Dig Kharka 4720m: It is only a half-day walk to the broad basin of Dig Kharka, but we are gaining altitude rapidly. Again some up rocky hill on the way to the campsite.

Day 10 - Khare 5025m/16,486f Dig Kharka to Khare is only a few hours walk. So while the crew set off to set up camp we have the opportunity of exploring the valley leading to Kangtaiga. At Khare there are numerous sites for the camp, with the most popular being, at upper end of the Khare by a group of boulders. Here the huge north face of Mera and the peaks of the Hinku Shar Glacier dominate. From just above our camp we can clearly see the Mera La.

Day 12 - Khare: A rest and acclimatization day with more exploration opportunities. On the West side of the Hinku Nup Glaciers is a 5500m peak with stunning views of Mera La and Mera Peak. This would make a good objective today. The Sherpas may carry loads to the Mera La.

Day 13 - Mera La 5400m: A 2-hour walk across the rocks and screw leads to the first snow and ice, the tongue of the glacier flowing down from the Mera La. Here we change into plastic boots and crampons as we climb up onto the glaciated terrain, which leads to the Mera La (pass).

Day 14 - High camp 5800m: We establish high camp on the Hongu Ledge, at 5800m. Although this is a short day, we must prepare everything for next day.

Day 15 - Summit - stay High camp or Mera La: This is the big day! We attempt the summit. Several false summits finally lead to a view of the central summit, which is climbed from its left side. The view from the summit is one of the best in the entire Himalaya. No less than 5 of the world's fourteen 8,000 meters peaks can be seen from the top.

Day 16 - Khare: With a feeling of floating on air, we walk all the way to Khare.

Day 17 - Thang Nak: Cruising down the valley through the same trail to the Kharka and camp at the Thang Nak.

Day 18 - Thuli Kharka: We ascend through lush forest on the West side of the Hinku Valley, climbing beyond the tree line to the open alpine meadows and the flat, boulder-strewn site that is Thuli Kharka.

Day 19 - Lukla: From Thuli Kharka we climb then traverse across a couple of passes before the long descent. Most likely we stay in a lodge and there's a hot shower and a cold beer waiting for you!

Day 20 - fly to Kathmandu: We fly by plane to Kathmandu in the morning. Occasionally flights are delayed by bad weather however we are supposed to be in Kathmandu by 12 noon.

Day 21 - Kathmandu: A free day for washing, shopping and a last look around Kathmandu.

Day 22 - Farewel: We take you to the airport for your flight home. If you wish to stay longer we can offer plenty of suggestions as to what to do.
