Mera Peak (6,476m) is the mountain in the Mahalanguar section, Barun sub-section of the Himalaya, the highest trekking peak on Everest region is one of the most demanding and challenging but technically an easy climbing peak so one can have an excellent first peak climb without other climbing experience. Mera North, 6,476 m. (21,247 ft); Mera Central, 6,461 m. (21,198 ft); and Mera South, 6,065 m. (19,898 ft), as well as a smaller “trekking summit”, visible as a distinct summit from the south but not marked on most maps of the region. For this, we provide the necessary training and workout before climbing the peak. The other attraction of this trekking is we can have a magnificent summit view five 8,000m peaks including Mt Everest (8,848m), Mt Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Mt Makalu (8,463m), Mt Cho Oyu (8,201m) and Mt Lhotse (8,516m).
We ascend Mera Peak during the spring and autumn seasons as these seasons is the best time to climb the mountain for its astonishing views of the Himalayas.
The trekking starts with an exciting flight to Lukla in Solukhumbu. During the trek, we pass through a terraced landscape of Nepal foothills across small and beautiful villages where most of the hardy Sherpa’s are inhabited. Crossing two high passes we reach Hinku Valley which has large settlement area. Finally, from Hinku to Khare, we reach Mera Peak where we make our base camp. The altitude is low ascending snow slopes that rarely cross over 30 degrees. We can experience unforgettable sunrise view on Kanchenjunga and Everest from the upper slopes of Mera Peak. We will also have outstanding views of watershed areas, magnificent natural landscape, wild and heavily wooded valleys of Hongu and Hinku, densely forested hills and many more.
We will meet you at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and transfer to your hotel. When you have had your time to settle in and freshen up after your long flight, you will be invited to visit our office for a briefing about your program.

You will visit the center of pilgrimage Pashupatinath Temple and Swyambhunath, very ancient and enlisted in UNESCO World Heritage sites. The biggest Buddhist Stupa at Boudhnath and the fine arts and historical architecture of Kathmandu Durbar Square take you to the ancient Nepalese culture. On the journey back to the hotel, you can explore the local areas, gullies, and lifestyle.
Early morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla via mountain flight of about 40 minutes scenic flight. With clear weather, we get fantastic views of the mountains, including Everest, as we enter deep gorge of the Dudh Koshi valley. Today we will spend the rest of the time enjoying the Lukla valley and enjoying the panorama.
A good trail leads through the pasture to the edge of a diminishing forest of rhododendron and pine, which clothes the steep hillsides. We will pass through several tiny hamlets before entering the thick forest on the hill below the Kalo Himal Ridge. The trial goes straight from Lukla up to 1 hour then slightly ascent up to Chutanga. We have to walk through the pristine of Rhododendron (National flower of Nepal) and pine. There are many streams with numerous places for the first camp. Overnight at camp/or at local lodge.
You trek steep ascent path to cross chatara pass. From here, you can enjoy the spectacular views of Numbur Himal, Kongdi Ri, Karyolang peak, and many other mountains and peaks. Straight ahead and up through the rhododendron forests, we may encounter wild animals if we are lucky for beautiful weather, the view across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung, and the Lumding Himal and the scenery across the rolling foothills of the Hinku Valley are awe-inspiring. Traversing to the right and finally descending steeply to Tuli Kharka (big pasture), we will reach chatara La for our night stay.
We pass forests of juniper, rhododendron, and other local vegetation. Enjoy the views of Mera and the Hinku Valley. Als,so there is a possibility of encountering wild mountain animals like sloth bears, jungle cat, etc.among the tall pine trees. After having lunch in Thakthor, then continue to trek to kothe. This is an excellent place to camp, and there are several teahouses around, and you can visit and go and watch the local lifestyle in the remaining time.
Today will be about 4 to 5 working. We follow the west bank of the riverbed up the valley to Tangnag (4,360m). The path is gradual ascent, and we will have closed up views of Kusum Kanguru peak and many more Himalayas. On the way, we have a beautiful view of Mt. Charpate and Mera La and a Buddhist Gomba in the lap of the big rock. Thagnag is a summer grazing area with the simplest of lodges and shops starting to develop, and we overnight in Thagnag.
Today we can experience an excellent valley opening out views to the north of the Hinku Nup glacier and the line of peaks beyond. From Charpatti Tal, the path descends slightly and crosses a sandy bowl to the steep stream that descends from Dig Kharka. The route continues somewhat up towards Khare. From Khare, it is possible to do a glacier session to ensure that everyone is happy with the use of ropes and crampons.
Today is another acclimatization day for our high peak climbing of the next days. The views of Mera from our breakfast table at Khare are particularly stunning. Stroll around and prepare to attempt the peak overnight at Camp.
This is an exciting day as we climb onto the Mera Glacier and follow it to the pass. We have to march through steep route (about 260 meters), and it takes around 2 to 3 hours to reach Base Camp. 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 will trek high to High Camp. On the way, see the beautiful view of Mera peak and glaciers. From High Camp, if weather permits, we will have a panorama of Kanchenjunga far to the east. The camp is located at an excellent point from where you can have some great mountain views.
Today we will remain in the high camp to explore the incredible vistas of high field. This is primarily a weather day (most possibly) as it gets changed frequently.
This is probably the most essential and most robust day on any mountaineering trip on this trip. It is usually necessary to rope up for much of the summit approach due to crevasse hazards along the route. As it starts to get light, we enjoy incredible views across to Baruntse (7129m), Chamlang (7319m), and Nau Lekh (6360m) with Makalu (8481m) looming behind. After achieving the summit, you retrace your steps down to high camp. After taking pictures and enjoying the view, we descend by the same route back to our campsite at Khare for the night’s rest. You will find this day-long but an inspirational one for your life! Overnight at Khare.
Today we will hike for like 7 hours to reach Kothe. We descend firstly to Tagnag before continuing to Kothe. The night we enjoy local wines and foods and relax at the camp and overnight.
You will follow another new route back to Thuli kharka that stays high on the open hillside. It’s nice to walk through the red Rhododendron forest with the beaten trail of the Himalaya of Nepal. We observe the full range of Mera peaks, Mera North, Mera Central, Mera South from Thuli Kharka.
We cross the exciting Zatrwa La pass (4,600m) before descending steeply into the Dudh Kosi valley and to Lukla. We trek through forests of fir, rhododendron, oak, juniper, and local vegetation. After crossing the pass, we see the beautiful view of Lukla valley Cho yu, Kongde peak, Numbur Himal, Kusum Khangru, and so many others. Spend the last night of trek strolling around the Lukla valley.
