Mera Peak Climbing is probably the one of the greatest experience for adventure lovers. Mera Peak ‎(6,476 m/21,247 ft.) is one of the Nepal’s highest trekking peaks, which is located south of Mount Everest. From the summit of Mera Peak we can watch one of the most beautiful panoramas of Nepal that includes Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse, Makalu and Kangchenjunga. The traditional Mera Peak route is straight via the Zatra La Pass, but we follow the way that goes south from Lukla and then we will reach the Panggom La (3286m). We hike through small Sherpa villages, Pine and rhododendron forests that will take us to the wild Hinku Valley and ultimately to reach the Mera Peak.

Compared to other peaks, the Mera Peak climbing is an affordable summit for a first mountaineering experience in Nepal. The route on the north side is easier for new mountaineers and involves trekking on a glacier at high altitude, with crampons and ice axes. The weather and snow conditions must be good for the safety and success of the summit.The route from the west or the south face of the Mera Peak climb is more difficult than the north face and requires more experience in mountaineering. It is advisable to walk slowly with regular steps and to be well hydrated regularly.Our Expert Sherpa guide will decide on possible modifications if necessary, for the safety and the success of the ascent. It is necessary to know the basics of mountaineering and be in good physical shape to participate in this expedition and to reach the summit of Mera Peak.

Optional: Embark on a bus ride to Ramechap, a small town that operates flights to Lukla, the gateway trekking in the Everest region.We highly recommend you to travel Manthali Airport one day prior to the Lukla flight instead of leave Kathmandu very early in the morning around 3:00 AM same day. It will make your day very hectic and not leave you in a good sprit to start your trek up to Phakding.

Overnight: Local lodge in Ramechhap

Dear guest, Please be inform that due to traffic congestion as well as renovation in Kathmandu airport, most of Lukla flight has been operating from Manthali airport since July 2019. For your information, it takes roughly 4 hours drive to get Manthali airport from Kathmandu by Arniko Highway. This means you need to wake up early in the morning around 2:30 AM - 3:00 AM to go for a drive and catch your early morning Lukla flight from Manthali.

Another best options is you can go Ramechhap one day earlier by private Vehicle or you can fly to Lukla directly by Helicopter. For Helicopter flight it cost approximately USD 300-500 Per Person. If you looking more comfortable & hassle free journey then flying by helicopter to Lukla would be best options.

We take the stunning flight to the small airstrip at Lukla, (2,800m) the entry to the Khumbu region and the start point for the popular trail towards Everest. It is a busy little village with many lodges, equipment and supply shops as well as the airport. We start our trek heading south from Lukla with a steep descent to Surkye. From here we have a steep climb up to the Chutok La from where we contour into a side valley to Piuyan (2,800m).

From the top we can see Naulekh and five minutes below the pass we catch our first views of Mera's impressive South Face. It’s a long, steep descent to the bottom of the valley, with views south over the hills of the lower Himalaya.

A short walk takes us to Thaknak, which is a summer grazing area with primitive lodges and shops. Overnight in Thaknak.

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.

Approx. Time: 3-4 hrs hike Accommodation: Lodge  Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

After having good breakfast at our Sherpa lodge at Khare, We start our journey to Mera Base Camp 5,350m/ 17,552 feet from Khare. Today we hike up to the Mera La 5,400m/ 17,717 feet. We will climb up to the Mera Glacier. At first it is easy-going but the trek up to the glacier is steep in sections and you will need to pace yourself and make sure you are getting your foot placements properly. There are chances of rock fall. So wearing helmets, crampons are recommended. The hike across the glacier is exceptional, with views and memories you will never forget. The down walk from the glacier to the camp area is short. We walk between the moraine and the glacier on the northern side as it descends from the col down to the campsite, which you can easily see from the glacier

Approx. Time: 3-4 hrs hike Accommodation:  Tented Camp Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

From here, we continue further through the Mera La pass to reach the Mera High Camp. Our path is along a rocky trail, which can be hazardous if it has recently snowed, as there are a number of crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn.

The views make us speechless as we can enjoy the Everest, Makalu, Baruntse, Kusum Kanguru and many other mountains and peaks in panorama. Moreover we feel chill by the magnificent views of Mera Glacier.Over night at tented Camp.

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

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 rightwards 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 metres. 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. Over night at Lodge

Approx. Time: 10-12 hrs    Accommodation: Lodge  Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

Today we will hike for like 7 hours to reach Kothe. The walking is not tough. We walk along the gradual descent path passing through Tangnang. This is a small village and we find yak settlement here. To reach Kothe we will follow the same kind of path. On the way we pass forests covered with fir, rhododendron and local vegetation. Over night at Camp/or local lodge.

Approx. Time: 4-5 hrs Trek   Accommodation: Lodge  Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

A hard day today as we start our climb of the Zatrwa La, the pass that brings us back to Lula. Departure Kote a small rocky trail takes us down the Hinku Valley for a couple of hours. There are some very steep rocky steps both up and down. We lastly leave the Hinku Kola and commence a very steep climb through the forest. We have an early lunch at Toktar, a small cluster of teahouses in the forest. Through the trees, we can just spot the summit of Mera Peak now far away. After lunch we continue climbing up through forest. The rhododendron trees give way to smaller bushes and the mountains begin to appear across the valley. Looking back on a clear day we can see all three summits of Mera, Peak and Naulekh. The higher we climb the better the views and we can trace much of the route we have trekked the past couple of weeks. Finally, we reach a few prayer flags and from here the trail eases as we approach the lodge at Chetrabu. We enjoy views of Mera's vertical west face.

Approx. Time: 5-6 hrs Trek   Accommodation: Lodge  Meals: 3 times healthy & hygienic meals

The last 300 to 400 metres of the ascent to the Zatrwa La will be our last climb of the trip, with superb views southwards across the ridge and valley landscape of Nepal's Middle Hills.

Dear Pasang,Thank you for a well run trek. Our guide was very experienced and was quite sensible about our approach, especially compared to some of the other guides. Overall, the trek was an awesome experience, something I will never forget. There is something amazing about standing on top of one of Nepal's peaks and looking out over the land. Thank you for organizing the opportunity for that to happen for us.


Sincerely
Craig- Australia

FAQs

Mera Peak is not a technical peak but you need good stamina for a long day effort while climbing it. You can climb Mera peak without any previous climbing experience and skills of using climbing equipment but knowledge on using equipment and previous experience would be beneficial although not mandatory because a pre-ice climbing training is provided to you in Base Camp to make you skillful on using climbing gears such as ropes, ice pick, harness, crampons.

We use standard rooms at quality hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes up to Khare teahouses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide single and double rooms, or seldom a dormitory. At times when possible, dining will be around a bon fire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in tea houses provides essential and basic facilities and will be always outside the room. During Climbing Period, we provide quality Tent with Matters.

Most teahouses (lodges) in Mera peak trails cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal bhat(rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season) and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. You will find a lot of garlic on the menu because it assists with acclimatization – eat some every day. In many larger villages you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you'll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to destination.

Yes, our entire climbing Sherpa guides have all received 45-day training from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. The guides have also received high altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project). Please check our Trekking Guides Profiles and Training Certificates.

In major places, we arrange guesthouse with hot shower. And in rest of the places, water in bucket will be provided for shower.

Our company insures all our staff members, including guides, cooks, Sherpas and porters. Please browse though Company Information pages to view insurance details
