MERA PEAK CLIMBING

Mera Peak Climbing is an exhilarating adventure in Nepal that gives you an opportunity to reach the summit of Mera Peak at more than 6400m above sea level. 

Actually, it is the highest climbing (without permit)  peak in Nepal  6476m. Enjoy excellent views of the high Himalayas that include Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and other neighboring peaks during our Mera Peak adventure that comprises a short mountain flight to Lukla, followed by trekking through Sherpa inhabited villages.

Following the trekking route, we make our way off the beaten path along Hinku Honku valley. We trek up to Mera Peak base camp, summit the peak and return with an experience of a lifetime!

Mt. Mera Peak doesn’t require technical peak climbing experience as the snow slopes do not exceed more than 30 degrees. There will be fixed ropes and you are safeguarded by fixed lines. You will be following the climbing Sherpa’s instructions and footsteps during the climb to the summit.

Accommodation is in guest houses during the trek, until we reach Khare where we spend two nights in tented camps with the climbing sherpa team (porters, cook, guide, and leader).

We return back to Lukla and board a scenic flight to Kathmandu that ends our Memorable Mera Peak climbing adventure.

 Highlights of Mera Peak Climbing

  • Excellent opportunity to climb Nepal’s highest (no permit required) peak below 6500m
  • Stunning views of the Himalayas above 8000m including Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, etc
  •  Experience life as the “mountain people” live, in the heart of the Himalayas
  • A Chance to experience mountain teahouses, camping, trekking plus a peak climbing adventure

ITINERARY

Expand All

Our representative will meet you at Tribhuwan International Airport. You will then be transferred to your hotel in Kathmandu city. Our staff will assist you until the check-in procedure ends at the hotel. You can either rest at the hotel or visit our office for additional information about the trip.

Today, we will take an early morning scenic flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip in Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Khumbu and the entire Everest region. From Lukla, we start our trek heading east into the thick forest on the hillside below the Kalo Himal Ridge. There are several trails that head away from the main trail on this section, so sticking to the group is the best option before arriving at Chhutang.

Leaving Chhutang we will follow the trail that gradually ascends and steepens as we head towards the crossing of Zatrawala Pass at 4600 meters. Our tiring climb to the top of the pass is rewarded with magnificent views of Numbur Himal, Kongdi Ri, Karyolang Peak and other surrounding peaks. Our trek goes along a level path for almost two hours before descending all the way to Tuli Kharka.

From Tuli Kharka, our trail is a mixture of both uphill and downhill trekking through dense forest filled with rhododendron, oak, pine and juniper trees. During our trek, we will have magnificent views of Mera Peak and surrounding snow-capped peaks. A steep descent to the Hinku River and a final uphill climb will lead us to Kothe. Kothe lies to the west side of the Hinku valley and offers serene wilderness with lush vegetation to trekkers.

Our trail from Kothe goes along the ridge of the Hinku river towards Gondishung. We will pass through Lungsumgba Gompa which was built approximately 200 years ago. Here we can find Mera Peak along with its route scripted in rock, a fantastic example of rock carving architecture. Our trek continues along a rather easy walking trail that leads to the summer grazing area of Thangnak where there are shops and tea houses.

Our trail from Thangnak goes over the lateral moraine towards Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers. From there, the trek involves a steep climb all the way to Khare. We will enjoy the magnificent view of the Northern Face of Mera Peak from Khare. Besides, Khare offers a number of good hikes for exploration and acclimatization.

Acclimatization is essential in higher altitudes to avoid mental and physical sickness. As we are above the 5000 meters altitude, we will spend a rest day at Khare for acclimatization and exploration. Our Sherpa team will make necessary checks on our climbing gears including ropes, ice axes, crampons, harness, and other equipment before heading further to higher camps.

Leaving the Mera High camp, we will follow the trail that climbs over through Mera La Pass and continue trekking along the rocky and often snow-covered trail towards Mera Peak High Camp. Once at the high camp, our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camps and make necessary checks on our health conditions and climbing gears. From the high camp, we can enjoy amazing views of Everest, Makalu, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, and Chamlang.

Today is the day we all have been desperately waiting for. Properly equipped and fully acclimatized, we start early with the aim to reach the summit before noon. Strong winds after midday can create obstacles in reaching the summit. We start around 2 in the morning and after having breakfast we climb up the glacier and onto a ridge. Once at the top, we are rewarded with magnificent views of five spectacular 8000-meter peaks – Everest 8848 m, Cho Oyu 8201m, Makalu 8463 m, Kanchenjunga 8586 m as well as Nuptse 7855 m and Chamlang 7319 m. After spending quality time at the Mera Peak summit, we will descend using the same route and head back to reach Khare for our overnight stay.

It might happen that we may not reach the summit as we planned due to bad or unfavorable weather conditions. Our main target is to successfully lead you to the summit of Mera Peak. Thus, we will spare a reserve day in case of bad weather or other unwanted situations. However, if everything goes smoothly, we can use this day to trek back on leisure.

After having achieved our target – the summit of Mera Peak, we will retrace our steps from Khare and pass through Thangnak before heading further towards Kothe. With mostly downhill trekking, we will leave the high altitudes and enter into the dense sub-tropical forest filled with rhododendron, oak, pine and birch trees. We trek until we arrive at Kothe.

Leaving Kothe, our trail is uphill trekking through dense rhododendron forest that goes over the western section of Hinku valley towards Tuli Kharka. Duration 6-7 hours From Tuli Kharka we can enjoy the magnificent views of Mera North, Mera Central and south face of Mera Peak.

Today is the last day of our trekking. From Tuli Kharka we will ascend for the crossing of Zatrawala Pass and from the top of the pass, we descend to finally arrive back to Lukla. In the evening, we will celebrate the successful Mera Peak Climb.

We will take an early morning scenic flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu. You will be transferred to the hotel after landing at the airport. You can either have rest at hotel or visit sites that weren’t possible on the second day of the trip. Enjoy your leisure time at Kathmandu.

Today, last day in amazing Nepal with great experience and fond memories of Mera Peak Climbing, as per your time for an international flight, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking member transfer you to the airport for your final departure homeward bound or to your next destinations. Breakfast Included.
