Itinerary

Expand AllCollapse All

    Welcome to Nepal, a Himalayan Kingdom. After customs and immigration, a Nepal Trek Adventure representative will greet you as you exit the airport. Then we will greet you and transport you to the hotel in Thamel's heart, which is a really attractive location within the city. Later that evening, after checking into the hotel, there will be a meeting and orientation. You are then free to settle in and explore your bustling surroundings. Our skilled staff is here to provide any assistance or direction.

      After breakfast, we have a full day of sightseeing planned in the Kathmandu Valley, including visits to the most important historical, cultural, and religious sites nearby. The tour guide leads us through the holy Hindu Pashupatinath Temple, one of the world's largest Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, the well-known Swyambhunath "Monkey Temple," an ancient religious complex perched atop a hill in the Kathmandu Valley, and the Buddhist shrine Buddhanath, the world's oldest and tallest stupa that dominates the skyline. Following the tour, there will be a trip briefing, an introduction to the guide, and a last check of the climbing gear for the trek to ensure that everyone is prepared for the exciting journey ahead.

        The third day of the Mera Peak climbing trip starts with an exhilarating flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, which provides stunning views of the Himalayas. When you arrive, you'll meet your trekking team and proceed to Paiya, which will take 4 to 5 hours. Along the route, you'll pass through lush woods, tiny Sherpa settlements, and suspension bridges across deep river gorges. The gradual progress allows for acclimatization, and encounters with native fauna and cultural interactions add to the experience. Paiya welcomes you with warm local hospitality, authentic Sherpa food, and comfortable lodgings.

        Note: During peak seasons, Lukla Airport can become congested. This is why, during the autumn (October-November) and spring (April-May) seasons, all aircraft to Lukla are rerouted through Manthali. Manthali is around 4-5 hours' drive from Kathmandu. So, we'll leave for Manthali at 1:45 a.m. to make sure we arrive on time for the flight. The flight from Manthali to Lukla takes approximately 17-20 minutes.

          The hike from Paiya to Panggom is both tough and rewarding. The trek begins with a brief drop to a strong wooden bridge, which serves as a prelude to the difficult but thrilling ascent to Kari La Pass.

          Kari La Pass, located at an elevation of 2,990 meters (9,812 feet), provides panoramic views of Cho Oyu, the world's majestic sixth-highest peak, as well as the gorgeous Kharikhola Valley.

          Beyond the pass, the trail meanders through beautiful forests decorated with towering waterfalls, a habitat partnering with various animals, including lively monkeys, unusual birds, and even the elusive snow leopard. Each cascade along the path provides an opportunity for breathtaking photographs that will become treasured memories.

          Our final destination for the day is Panggom village, which sits calmly at 2,946 meters (9,675 feet) above sea level. This tiny Sherpa town provides a fascinating look into Sherpa culture and traditions. A brief 20-minute stroll from the village reveals a majestic monastery that guards Panggom.

            We depart early again in the morning to reach the Panggom La pass (3,180m). Our trail, marked solely by Tibetan chortens, takes us into the isolated Hinku Valley, where Mera Peak first appears. It's a striking beginning to our ultimate objective.

            After that, the trail meanders through farmland, where the local farmers and villagers go about their everyday business. After lunch at Sibuje, we'll travel on more Nepali flats to Ningsaw. Our guide may continue on for an additional hour and a half to Ramailo Dada, depending on the situation there.

              Our journey today will take us mostly through charming bamboo and rhododendron forests, which are set apart by several climbs and descents. We will spend almost three hours immersed in the lush forests before reaching Tama Khola. Here, after crossing the river, we'll climb for around 20 minutes and come across two recently built tea houses. This picturesque location will be our lunch stop; it provides a rejuvenating break in the embrace of nature.

              After lunch, we will travel for two hours more through the enthralling rhododendron and bamboo forests till we arrive at Chhatra Khola, also referred to as the Bamboo Camp.

                The trail takes us through fragrant pine trees and lush bamboo groves as we continue toward Kothe, arriving at Taktor Village. This quaint village is the meeting point of trails leading from Thuli Kharka and Chhatra Khola, and it provides us with a much-needed lunch break.

                After lunch, we set off again, passing the deserted settlement of Tashing Dingma. Following the Inkhu Khola's winding path, the Hinku Valley opens up before us, offering a stunning view of the majestic Mera Peak towering far below.

                We slowly approach Kothe as we continue along the ridge with a view of the river. We enter the Makalu Barun National Park upon arriving at Kothe, which marks the start of a new chapter in our journey.

                  Today, our journey leads us to Thangnak, where we'll spend the next two nights for essential acclimatization. Beginning our trek, we trace the tranquil path alongside the glacial river, fed by the towering peaks surrounding us, notably Mera Peak and Kusum Kanguru on clear days.

                  The trail, though not overly strenuous, necessitates a deliberate pace due to the increasing elevation, allowing our bodies to adjust gradually to the high altitude. Upon reaching Saurya, a welcome stopover for tea or lunch awaits, providing a well-deserved break before our onward journey to Thangnak.

                  As we ascend, we encounter pastoral scenes on the ridges overlooking the river, notably Gondishung, a seasonal settlement for herders, adorned with an ancient monastery steeped in history. Continuing upward, we eventually reach Thangnak, noting the gradual thinning of tree cover as we approach the snow line, a subtle reminder of our ascent into the alpine realm.

                    Acclimatization is crucial for the success of any trek, climb, or expedition, as it helps your body adjust to the reduced oxygen levels at high altitudes.

                    One effective way to aid acclimatization is by taking a side trip to the Tibetan Prayer Stones. This short hike, located behind Thangnak, offers stunning views from the ridge top. The walk also helps increase your heart and breathing rates, aiding in the adjustment to lower oxygen levels.

                    The hike to the Tibetan Prayer Stones not only provides an opportunity for exercise and breathtaking views but also serves as a valuable acclimatization tool, preparing your body for the challenges of high-altitude trekking.

                      As we continue along the trail, we'll come across large boulders left behind by Sabai Tsho, a glacial lake located near the path just north of Thangnak. Following the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier, we'll reach the grassy Dig Kharka, which offers stunning views of Charpate Himal and Kyeshar Khang.

                      Our journey takes us through moraines until we reach the snout of the Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers. Then, we face a steeper ascent to Khare, where we'll be staying for the next couple of nights. From a ridge overlooking Khare, we'll have a fantastic view of our upcoming route to Mera Peak.

                        Today is our much-needed rest day at Khare. It's all about acclimatization and gearing up for the big summit push. We'll take it easy, soaking in the village vibes and honing our climbing skills with the help of our trusty climbing guide. Short hikes around the area are on the agenda to help our bodies adjust to the high altitude.

                        Remember, listening to your body is key. If you're feeling tired or under the weather, it's crucial to take a break. And if you notice any signs of altitude sickness, like a pounding headache, queasiness, or struggling to catch your breath, don't hesitate to speak up. Your guide is there to help, so let's have a chat about what steps to take next.

                          Today we are going to Mera Peak Base Camp, which is 5,350 meters above sea level. In three or four hours, we should reach Mera Peak Base Camp, where we will make our camp for the night. We will be led across the moraine above Khare and pass through some boulders on our way to Mera La pass, which is 5,415 meters high and rewards us with vistas of beautiful landscapes and breathtaking mountain scenarios. After that, we'll keep moving toward the Base Camp while descending toward Hongu. We'll find a good spot for you to camp, or you can choose to stay in a lodge

                            We climb steeply to Mera La, from where we have panoramic views of all the surrounding peaks, including the south faces of Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Baruntse, as well as Mount Everest, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Cho Oyu. We proceed up the north flank, strewn with rocks, beyond Mera La to a rocky outcropping where we make high camp.

                              The most demanding and thrilling day of the ascent typically marks the summit day. In the early morning, typically before daybreak, you will strive towards the summit. There is a push toward the peak in the last part of the ascent. There may be open ridges and/or snowy slopes in the terrain. It may be essential to use ice axes, crampons, and ropes.

                              Reaching the pinnacle of Mera Peak is an incredible achievement. You will take your time enjoying and admiring the breathtaking panorama, which includes the world's five tallest mountains, Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu. Once you have spent some time at the peak, we will start the descent back to Khare.

                                We have included a backup day in the program in case our summit attempt is delayed due to severe weather or the need to recuperate for another day. It allows us to be a little more flexible and wait for a better weather window or to give a group member more time to recuperate from altitude sickness.

                                If the spare contingency day is not required, it will be included as an additional free day in Kathmandu. This will let you go shopping, see various temples, and tour the city. We sincerely hope that you won't require the extra backup day. However, we appreciate your understanding that it exists for your protection and well-being.

                                  Finally, we reach Khote after a long and exhausting trip back down the Hinku Valley. Although the rocky moraine can be difficult, the terrain is primarily downward.  We must be careful with our steps, to prevent twisted ankles.

                                    Leaving Mera Peak behind, we head to Chetera (4,200m) for the evening, staying high above on the exposed hillsides west of the Hinku River. There's a strong 600-metre ascent on a meandering, rocky trail that winds up and down through vibrant rhododendron trees.

                                    In the spring, the rhododendron forests burst with colour, and the surrounding mountains make for breathtaking views. There will be many of chances for us to savour the beauty and tranquillity of the mountains.

                                      Upon ascending steeply from Thuli Kharka, we arrive at the rugged Zatrwa La, situated at 4610 metres (15,120 feet). From here, we can reflect on the Hinku wilderness and the peak we just ascended. It's important to use caution when descending from the top crags because it can get very cold.

                                      Lastly, we arrive at the Dudh Koshi Valley's farms and woodland. After a few days in the Himalayas, Lukla is a bustling city with diverse terrain. We had a celebratory meal with our team.

                                        We take a lovely morning flight back to Kathmandu, allowing us one final goodbye to the Himalayas. In December through February and June through August, travelers can take advantage of direct flights from Lukla to Kathmandu, which is Nepal's off-season. The flight lasts for about forty minutes. We will be driven in a private tour van from the domestic airport to our accommodation in Kathmandu.

                                        Note: Lukla to Manthali is a quick flight, arriving there in about 17–20 minutes.We then travel the remaining five to six hours (depending on traffic circumstances) back to Kathmandu from Manthali. Due to Air Traffic Congestion (ATC), we will fly from Lukla to Manthali during the peak seasons of spring (April–May) and autumn (October–November) rather than taking a direct route to Kathmandu.

                                          Our exhilarating journey to the Everest region is now over! Today marks the end of our 20-day Mera Peak Climbing Adventure. One of our team members will accompany you to the Tribhuvan International Airport so you can catch your trip home.

                                          With the expectation of seeing you again soon, we bid you farewell!

                                          Our team guides, porters and accompanying staff are locals with a broad knowledge about each and every location that we travel through.
