Mera Peak Climbing 17 Days

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.

ITINERARY

A representative from Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will meet you at Tribhuvan International Airport. You will then be taken to your hotel in Thamel, the tourist hub of Kathmandu.

Today we prepare for this exciting adventure which includes meeting your guide, checking necessary climbing equipment and a tour briefing. The remainder of the day is yours to explore Kathmandu or wander around Thamel. Breakfast included.

Today we take an early morning scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, the gateway to the Khumbu and Everest regions. From Lukla, we follow a trail heading east through thick forest on a hillside below the Kalo Himal Ridge. We will eventually arrive at Paiya where we will stay overnight.

Today descend and cross a bridge and continue on to Kari La Pass. We will pass through low shrub and bamboo forest while looking down at the Dudh Koshi Valley and river. We continue until we arrive at the farming village of Pingkongma where we will stay overnight.

Leaving Pingkongma we head to Pingkongma La Pass and then climb up heading on a trail to the north. Along the way, we cross Peseng Kharka Khola (river) and pass Kharka Danda. We cross the Ningsow Khola (river) before arriving at Ningsow Village where we will stay overnight. 

From Ningsow we head up to Ramailo Danda from where we have views of Mera Peak. We then follow the trail as it heads through the Makalu Barun Park. We will follow the Pasang Lhamu trail until we reach our overnight destination of Chhatra Khola.

We head north on the trail to Mera Peak. We then arrive at the Majang Khola (river) where the trail merges with another that leads to Hinku Khola. We then continue to Tashing Ongma and then cross the bridge over the Sanu Khola before reaching Kothe where we will stay overnight. 

We follow the trail along the banks of the Hinku Khola with Mera Peak directly above. We will stop for lunch at Gondishung, a small settlement for cattle and yak grazing. We pass a 200-year-old Lungsumgba Gompa (monastery) before arriving at Thangnak where we will stay overnight. 

Leaving Thagnak we head to Khare and along the trail have views of Charpate Himal. The trail ascends across moraines to the base of the Hinku Nup (valley glacier) and Shar glaciers. After reaching Khare we can see the north face of Mera Peak. We will stay here the night. 

Today we have a day set aside to acclimatize, something that cannot be overlooked. Health professionals recommend staying active during this time. Your guide will also go over some tips on climbing to Mera Peak and the use of an ice axe, harness, ascenders, and crampons. We will stay overnight at Khare. 

We cross a rocky terrain to reach Mera Peak Base Camp. We then continue through Mera La Pass to reach Mera High Camp. Once at High Camp, we will have some amazing views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, and Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Baruntse. We will stay here overnight. 

This is the big day as we head off to the summit. We will be up real early in order to reach the summit with time enough to return to High Camp and Khare. The early morning light on the snow-capped peak is stunning. From the summit, we have spectacular 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 peaks. We will then head back to Khare for the night. 

Today we follow the trail back from Khare to Kothe. We will celebrate the success of our climb once back at Kothe where we will stay the night. 

We head off today and ascend to Thule Kharka passing a Chorten just before coming to the village. We will stay here overnight.

Today we cross Zatrwa-La Pass from where we can look down toward Lukla while surrounded by Cho Oyu, Kongde Peak, and other snow-covered peaks. We will stay overnight at Lukla.

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 rest at the hotel, wander around Thamel or visit historic sites in Kathmandu Valley.

A representative from Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will take you to the airport at least three hours prior to your scheduled departure.
