Mera Peak Climbing 20 Days

This is the highest peak in Nepal that does not require a climbing permit (6,476m/21,190ft). From the summit there are spectacular views of several 8000 meter plus peaks, such as Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu. You will also visit a number of Sherpa villages in this mountainous region and observe their traditions and culture. We will stop at numerous teahouses, experience overnight camping plus a true climbing expedition. The trek follows trails within the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park.

We begin with a short scenic mountain flight to Lukla and then trek through various Sherpa villages, conspicuous by their Gompas (monasteries), chortens (engraved stones in Sanskrit) and multi-colored Tibetan prayer flags. We will follow remote and less trekked routes through the Hinku and Hunku valleys. We then climb up to Mera Peak Base Camp, summit the peak and experience the rush of standing on top of a mountain. Climbing Mera Peak is not a technical climb with slopes not greater than 30 degrees. Fixed ropes will guide you to the summit as you follow in your guide’s footsteps.

Accommodation is in teahouses during the trek until we get to Khare where we spend two nights camping with the climbing crew (porters, cook, guide, and group leader). At Khare we will stop and allow time to acclimatize, that is necessary if climbing to higher altitudes such as Mera Peak. On our second day of the trek we will cross Zatra La Pass which is the accepted route to Mera Peak.

We then head back to Lukla and take a scenic flight to Kathmandu. This is a great combination of trekking and climbing that takes you to the summit of a significant peak – without the bother of obtaining climbing permits. Mera Peak climbing is an ideal for anyone with moderate mountaineering understanding and skill. The most challenging and important facet of this trek is getting acclimatized. You will need only basic climbing skills, which our guide will help you with prior to your climb to the summit.

Note:

Usually, this Mera peak climbing tour involves climbing the Central Mera Peak (6461m). There are two other faces of Mera Peak – North Mera (6476m) and South Mera (6064m). We can also operate climbing trips for these faces as per your request as well. Please do not hesitate to click the 'Make an Enquiry' if you have any questions.

ITINERARY

Expand All

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. In the evening we will have a Trip meeting where you will also be briefed on what to expect on your journey to Mera Peak. 

We rest for most of the day and unpack and ready ourselves for the trek. We will also visit Sherpa Expedition and Trekking’s office in the afternoon where our trekking guides will check our set of climbing equipment to make sure that they are in good condition before heading off on the trail.

We take an early morning flight to Lukla and from Lukla begin our trek to Paiya along a jungle trail, cross a bridge over the Handi Khola (river) and then arrive at Surkhe Village. We continue heading south and cross the Chutok La Pass before reaching the small settlement of Paiyan, also known as Chutok.

Leaving Paiya, we cross a wooden bridge and trek through Kari La Pass where there are beautiful rhododendron and bamboo forests along the way. The amazing views of mountains and the view of Dudh Koshi River will leave you awestruck.

This morning we leave Pangom and head to Pingkongma La Pass and then ascend 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 coming to Ningsow Village where we will stay overnight.

From Ningsow we ascend to Ramailo Danda from where we have our first views of Mera Peak. We then follow the trail heading through the Makalu Barun Park. We will follow the Pasang Lhamu trail until we reach our overnight objective of Chhatra Khola.

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

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

This morning we leave Thagnak and 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 arriving at Khare we can view the north face of Mera Peak. We will stay here the night.

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

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

Today is going to be a long and tiring one as we head to the summit. We will have some amazing views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, and Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Baruntse. The views from the summit go on forever! After some time at the summit we retrace our foot-steps back to high camp where we rest for a while before descending to Kongma Dingma for the night.

Today is a well-deserved rest day after yesterday’s mammoth effort to reach the summit.

This morning we head up a remote valley to the yak pastures further up. As we trek we have Chamlang on our left, and Baruntse in the distance. We continue up the valley in the direction of Mt. Everest and Lhotse. We will camp overnight at Seto Pokhari.

This is one of the most remote regions of the Himalayas, so it is rare that we see any trekkers on the trail unless it is in the peak tourist season. From Seto Pokhari we pass several lakes in the upper Hunku Basin. After passing Hunku Pokhari we come to Hunku Glacier. Tonight we will stay at Labtsa Base Camp.

Today we cross the Amphu Labtsa La Pass (5,845m) then cross the Amphu Labtsa Glacier. Lhotse Shar Glacier and Imja Glacier are very close.  The trail then heads around Imja Tsho Lake and then follows the main Island Peak trail. As we continue we come close to  Ama Dablam Glacier before arriving at Chhukung where we stay overnight.

This morning we head to Namche Bazaar and first come to the settlement of Bibre and then cross a bridge over the Imja Khola (river). We pass through several attractive villages, through grazing lands and cross several bridges before arriving at Namche Bazaar where we will stay the night.

This morning we head out on a mostly a downhill trek on a trail next to the Dudh Koshi River. We cross several suspension bridges, pass by a number of monasteries and villages before arriving at Lukla. We can spend the rest of the day resting or wander around Lukla and the nearby countryside. This is our last day of the trek.

This morning we take a scenic flight to Kathmandu giving us an opportunity to look down on the mountains we trekked around on our journey to Mera Peak. After arriving back at Kathmandu we can choose to rest at our hotel in Thamel or go for a wander around the area and do some souvenir shopping before our departure tomorrow. 

Today a representative from Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will take you to the airport at least three hours prior to your departure. On your journey home you may already be planning another mountain climbing adventure – even a 7000 or 8000-meter peak!
