The main importance of Mera Peak climb by Phaplu rather than Lukla is to have a much better acclimatization because the first steps are done in low altitude than Lukla. The beginning of the trek to Mera Peak climb from Phaplu is done in the altitude around 2000m-2800m for 4 days and then you reach a beautiful lake where you will Kholakharka step. This will allow you to get better acclimatization. Then we come to the valley that leads us first to Tangnag and we will make a day of acclimatization before reaching Khare to 5, 050 meter with another day of acclimatization.

We are well acclimatized to the ascent of Mera Peak High Camp which starts at 5,700 m camp before the summit. You can see Lovely view of Everest, Makalu, Baruntse at sunset. The next day is the big day ascent of Mera Peak and return to Khare, a big day. The ascent to Mera Peak presents no technical difficulty. The glacier is not very steep and slightly cracked. At the end of a small rise of 50 m to 35 ° as Sherpas fitted with a fixed rope allows access to the top and the view of the Himalayan range of Makalu to Cho Oyu. Superb. The return is by the ZatravLa pass which allows for a loop.When you trek into base camp of Mera through phaplu the lowland of solukhumbu, you will experience a different than starting from Lukla. You will pass through different beautiful Sherpa village like, Phaplu, Taksindu, Nunthala, Kharikhola & will see the very nice cultivated land along the trail. Throughout the trek towards the village to village you will become fitter and fitter, and your legs will be further physically powerful for summit day

Start trekking. Long step to cross the first pass: Taksindo La (3080 m). Nice view of the Khumbu and summits Numbur. Step just after the pass. At lodge. (Breakfast lunch dinner.)

6 h 30 walk. M: 1200 m. D: 970 m.

The day starts with a long downhill leg as we descend 1300 metres to the Dudh Kosi. We pass through the large village of Nuntalla (2194m) before reaching the foaming river. In Nepali, Dudh means milk and Kosi is a river, so this is the 'Milk River', which brings the melt from the snows of Everest down to the plains of India. We cross on a magnificent 109 metre long suspension bridge and on the other side, we reach the small settlement of Jubhing (1680m). Now heading north we follow the river gradually climbing above it and entering the side valley of the Khari Khola (Khola = stream), where we stay overnight in the village of the same name

Today, we turn away from the Everest Trail (which heads uphill to Bupsa and the Khari La). Instead, we head in a south-easterly direction, following a straightforward and at times zig-zagging trail which gains height steadily and takes us close to Lenjikharka. We reach our overnight halt at the village of Pangkongma (2850m) in time for a late lunch.

A great day of trekking, which begins with a climb up to the Pangkongma La (3174m) on the main watershed seperating the valleys of the Dudh Kosi and Hinku Khola. We have our first sight of Mea Peak before making a steep descent to the village of Sibuje (2770 m). From here the trail is undulating as we make our way through the forested river valley to Ning So (2850m).

We have a steep climb up to a tea house at 3280 metres, which affords tremendous views. We then continue to climb to our high point of the day at 3350 metres, before a steep descent back to the river and a welcome lunch stop. After lunch we have a roller coaster afternoon through the forest with some steep sections of trail. At the end of the day we cross the river on a remarkable bridge made from a huge tree trunk to reach our accommodation at 'Jungle Camp' (3160m).

We continue to climb steep slopes up to 3700 meters and then again roller coaster lead to the junction with the route of Zatswa La. The road continues to reach Kote (Mounsom Kharka) at the junction of two valleys descending Mera, around 3600 meters. The village is beautiful with a few lodges and grocery stores. At lodge. (Breakfast lunch dinner.)

4 hours of walking. 

Along the west bank of the Hinku Drangka north, we cross the summer pastures of Gondishung (small gompa) Dupishung and Lungsamba. The valley becomes narrower, squeezed between the Kanguru (6369 m) and Mera West (6255 m). Tangnag (in Tibetan, "the black plain") is a great place for the night. At lodge. (Breakfast lunch dinner.)

6 hours of walking. 

A day for acclimatization, one option for an acclimatization walk is to trek up the nearby ridge coming down from Kusum Kanguru, where we can reach an altitude of just over 5000 metres on the hill known as Shartemba Go. Here, we have spectacular views of Kusum Kanguru and of our route up onto the Mera La. At the leader’s discretion, part of today may also be used to run through various techniques and safety procedures to be used during the climbs.

Today we will climb above 5,000 m (16,400ft) 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 trails heads eastward out of Tangnag, along with the lateral moraine of the Dig Glacier.We 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. We 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. Over night at Camp/or local lodge.

Approx. Time: 2-3 hrs Trek    Accommodation: Lodge Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

This morning foothold on the glacier can be a little tricky. Long climb on the little steep glacier to reach the location of high camp. The view from the camp presents a festival of "7000" and "8000" meters: Kanchenjunga, Chamlang, Makalu, Baruntse, Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu ... This panorama is considered one of the most beautiful of Nepal. Overnight in tents. (Breakfast lunch dinner.)

6 hours of walking. M: 930 m. D: 70 m.

Very early departure for the ascent of the central summit via the north slope. Long climb on a glacial plateau without much technical difficulty. It's a bit cracked glacier. The last meters have more slope, around 35 to 40 degrees. Back to Khare. At lodge. (Breakfast lunch dinner.)

10 hours of walking. M: 900 m. D: 159
