Khare Weather

The weather in Khare is usually quite different from the weather in Lukla. In Khare, the weather is generally nice most of the time. It's usually pleasant and not too extreme. However, the journey to Khare from Lukla is a bit tricky when it comes to weather. The path between Khare and Lukla has a few mountain passes, and these passes often have clouds covering them or strong winds blowing through. This can make the journey difficult. To avoid getting caught in the bad weather later on, it's a good idea for flights heading to Khare to operate early in the morning. This way, they can stay clear of the potentially challenging weather conditions that might come later in the day.

    Successful Khaare Mera Peak Climb in Clear Skies

    Starting  the Khare to Mera Peak Climbing , our four-day journey was marked by perfect weather conditions and a smooth ascent. The trek through picturesque landscapes and quaint tea houses set the stage for the challenging climb. The team's acclimatization efforts paid off, and reaching the Mera Peak summit on the fourth day was a triumphant moment. The skies were crystal clear, providing breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding peaks. The descent was equally rewarding, with each step offering a sense of accomplishment. All of the credit goes to Nepal Trek Adventure for the smooth arrangement of the climb. Highly recommended company.
