Overview

The Mera peak trek/climb (6476m) is famed for the being the biggest trekking peak in Nepal, though there is little technical difficulty required to climb. Mera Peak rises to the South of Everest and dominates the beautiful and remote valleys of Hinku and Hongu.

The ascent of Mera Peak is made from the Mera La pass (5415m) on the Northern Face, which connects the unpopulated valley of Hongu to the Hinku valley.

Late Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tensing were the first climbers to do the Mera Peak Trek, following this very route on 20th May 1953. The Mera Peak Trek begins in Lukla (after a short flight from Kathmandu). From Lukla six days of trekking will see you through fascinating Sherpa Villages to Mera Base Camp (5099m) situated at the base of an immense glacier leading to the Mera La Pass.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Kathmandu

Welcome to Himalayan country of Nepal. Upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport our representative welcomes you and assists to transfer in your hotel in Kathmandu. After time to get refreshed, evening you’ll meet and transfer for welcome dinner in one of the typical Nepalese restaurant in the heart of Kathmandu and briefing about your trip and overnight at Hotel.

Day 2: Fly from Kathmandu to Lukla (2800m.). Trek from Lukla to Chutanga (3050m.)

This morning we take the short but spectacular flight to Lukla where we meet our crew. We then begin walking for 3 to 4 hours due east from Lukla, passing through a number of tiny hamlets before entering thick forest on the hillside below the Kalo Himal Ridge. Be careful to stay with the group on this section as there are many trails leading away from the main path. There are many streams with numerous places for the first camp, all of which are loosely referred to as Chutanga.

Day 3: Trek from Chutanga to Zatrawala Pass (4610m.) to Zatrabok (4704m.)

You trek steeply ascending path to cross Zatrawala Pass. From here you can enjoy the spectacular views of Numbur Himal, Kongdi Ri, Karyolang peak and many other mountains and peaks. Now you walk along the leveled trail for almost one and half hours and then the trail turns downhill and you trek through this descent path all the way to Zatrabok. This is campsite surrounded by hills.

Day 4: Trek from Zatrabok to Kothe.

To reach Kothe you trek steep descent path all the way. En route, you pass forests of juniper, rhododendron and other local vegetation. The views you can enjoy are of Mera peak, Nauleku peak and many other mountains and peaks.

Day 5: Trek from Kothe to Tangnang (4356m.) (Sabal Tsho-Lake) following Hinku Valley (4600m.)

You trek along the bank of the river and find bushes on both sides. The path is a gradual ascent and you can enjoy the views of Kusum Kanguru peak and many more.

Day 6: Acclimatization day at Tangnag.

This will be a rest day to let your bodies recover from the past days of hiking. You will relax and soak up the beautiful views of peaks and glaciers surrounding the head of the Hinku Valley.

Day 7: Trek from Tangnang to Dig Kharka (4659m.)

You now walk towards the mountain as the trail swings to the east. You gradually gain height until you find yourself at Dig Kharka (4,650m), close to the foot of the Hinku Nup Glacier. This is a pleasant, grassy camp in an impressive location.

Day 8: Trek from Dig Kharka to Khare (5045m.)

Today we will climb above (5,000 m.) for the first time. Our hike up to Khare (5,100m, 16,728ft) is short, but we will take it slowly, with frequent stops to soak up the incredible surroundings. The trail heads eastward out of Tangnag along with the lateral moraine of the Dig Glacier. You will pause to climb up the moraine for a view of the pristine Sabai Tso glacial lake. A drop in lake level, caused by a recent rupture of the natural dam the held the lake, is clearly visible. You will arrive at Khare in the early afternoon and have lunch. From Khare, the beautiful north face of Mera Peak is in plain view and Mera glacier spills steeply down into the valley.

Day 9: Acclimatization day at Khare

Rest day at Khare. This is an acclimatization day as you can prepare yourself for the Mera Peak climb.

Day 10: Trek from Khare to Mera La (Pass) (5350m.)

Today you will travel a short distance, slowly ascending up onto Mera glacier. The climb is initially steep, but flattens out as you reach the crest of the glacier. You will traverse a long flat path on top of the glacier as you make your way to the pass, called Mera La (5,400m, 17,710ft). From here, the views are stunning. Crevasse fields gently stretch out in front of the pass and you are literally enclosed by a ring of jagged peaks and blue-green glaciers. The remaining route up to the summit of Mera Peak is clearly visible.

Day 11: Trek from Mera La (Pass) to Mera Peak High Camp.

This day you trek a gradually ascending path all the way. This area is covered by ice glacier. The views make you speechless as you enjoy Everest, Makalu, Baruntse, Kusum Kanguru and many other mountains and peaks in panorama. Moreover you feel chilledl by the magnificent views of Mera Glacier.

Day 12: Climb High Camp (5780m)

Climb High Camp (5780m.). Today, you make the climb to the high camp. This is located at about 5,800 metres on the Northern slopes of the upper mountain. It provides an excellent launch pad for the final climb to the summit. There is no need to make an early start but you must get your equipment ready so that the Sherpas can help with carrying this and the camp stores to the high camp. Having gained the Mera La, the route turns left (south) and follows easy angled snow slopes. After a short distance an area of crevasses is reached. Under normal conditions these can be walked around very easily, although looking into their deep, dark depths is always impressive. The crevasses soon give way to slightly steeper but open snow slopes that lead without difficulty to the high camp. This camp is in an excellent setting with wonderful views of Everest, Makalu and the Nuptse, Lhotse wall directly ahead. The setting sun casts an unbelievably magic light on these awesome mountains.

Day 13: Climb Mera Peak and return to Khare where you will camp.

The climb to the summit of Mera starts gradually and much will depend on snow and general weather conditions. The central summit will soon appear above the head of a wide glacier flanked by two ridges. We climb the centre of this over open snowfields and avoiding crevasses. The route then swings south-east, skirting below and to the east of the left-hand ridge before turning back right towards the main summit ridge of Mera. Mera actually has three summits; the highest is our objective. We reach this by following a classic snow-ridge to just below the final wall that guards the top. This short steep snow slope is easily climbed but there is a big effort required to climb this last 50 meters. Your reward, however, is a feeling of ecstatic jubilation as you survey the magnificent panorama from the top. After taking pictures and enjoying the view, we descend by the same route back to our campsite below the Mera La.

Day 14: Trek from Khare to Kothe and it takes about eight hours.

This day you walk along the gradual descending path passing through Tangnang. This is a small village and you find yak settlement here. To reach Kothe you follow the same kind of path. On the way you pass forests covered with fir, rhododendron and local vegetation.

Day 15: Trek to Zatrabok

Trek from Kothe to Zatrabok which takes about six hours. The trail goes steeply up all the way to Zatrabok. On the way you pass forests and green hills.

Day 16: Trek to Chutanga

Trek from Zatrabok to Chutanga and it takes approximately five hours. Till Zatrawala Pass the trail is ascending and then your trek begins to descend until you reach Chutanga. This route is a rocky path.

Day 17: Trek to Lukla

Trek from Chutanga to Lukla and it takes about four hours. You trek through forests of fir, rhododendron, oak, juniper and local vegetation. The trail you walk along moves downhill all the way to Lukla. You can enjoy the views of Numbur Himal, Kongdi Ri, Karyolang peak and many other mountains and peaks.

Day 18: Fly back to Kathmandu

Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu and it takes about 35 minutes. Stay overnight at hotel in Kathmandu on breakfast basis.
