This is a chance to go climbing without the necessary permits that most climbing expeditions require in Nepal. Mera Peak fits the bill perfectly and at (6,476m/21,190ft) you will have spectacular views of several 8000m plus peaks, such as Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu. Also on this trek, you will get a good understanding of how the Sherpa villagers’ in this mountainous region live. This climbing expedition has numerous stops at teahouses, overnight camping plus a real climbing adventure within the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.

Your journey begins with a short scenic flight to Lukla and trekking through a number of Sherpa villages, conspicuous by their Gompas (monasteries), chortens (engraved stones) and multi-colored Tibetan prayer flags. We will venture along isolated and less trekked trails through the Hinku and Hunku valleys and then head up to Mera Peak Base Camp, summit the peak and return with an adrenalin-pumped experience. Climbing Mera Peak is not considered a technical climb with slopes not exceeding 30 degrees. You will feel safe and secure as fixed ropes will guide you to the summit following in your guide’s footsteps.

Accommodation is in teahouses during the trek right up until we get to Khare where we spend two nights in tented camps with the climbing crew (porters, cook, guide, and group leader). At Khare we will spend time acclimatizing, that is considered essential if climbing to higher altitudes such as Mera Peak. On the second day of the trek we will cross Zatra La Pass which is the most popular route to Mera Peak.

We will then head to Lukla and board a scenic flight back to Kathmandu. This is a great combination of trekking and climbing that takes you to the summit of a sizeable peak – without the bother of obtaining climbing permits. Mera Peak climbing is an ideal choice for anyone with moderate mountaineering experience. The most challenging aspect of this trek is getting acclimatized and then having to cope with reduced oxygen as you head to the summit. You will need only basic climbing skills, which our guide will assist you with before your ascent to the summit.

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 Khare, we start our short but technically demanding trek towards Mera Peak Base Camp. Our trail is a gradual ascend over to the Mera Glacier. We will climb steeply towards the top of the glacier before traversing along the glacier to finally arrive at Mera Peak Base Camp. Once at the base camp, our Sherpa crew will quickly set up the camp and make necessary preparations for further trekking.

eaving the base 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.

This is the day we have all been waiting for as we head to the summit. We will be up real early in the morning order to reach the summit with time enough to return to High Camp and Khare. The early morning light on the snow-covered peak is dazzling. From the summit we have some awesome views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho-Oyu (8,210m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m), Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Nuptse (7,855m), Chamlang (7,319m), Baruntse (7,129m) and other massive peaks. We will then return to Khare for the night.

Today we have an early morning scenic flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu. You will be taken back to your hotel in Thamel where you can stroll around its narrow streets or visit some of the historic sites in Kathmandu Valley.
