  • Cross over challenging high-altitude mountain passes like Kari La (3,080m) and Zatrwa La (4,620m). 
  • The trek offers awe-inspiring vistas of five 8,000m giants- Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga.

Mera Peak, Nepal's highest trekking peak at 6,476 meters, sits majestically in the heart of the Everest Region. This adventure is ideal for those seeking a combination of trekking and peak climbing in Nepal. 

Mera Peak has three summits: Mera South (6,065m), Mera Central (6,476m), and Mera North (6,467m). This 19-day Mera Peak climb package focuses on climbing Mera Central, the highest summit of the three peaks. The central Mera Peak’s summit boasts a breathtaking panorama of five 8,000-meter giants: Everest (8,848m), Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Lhotse (8,586m), Makalu (8,485m), and Cho Oyu (8,188m).  

The Mera Peak Climb, known as the Mera Peak Expedition, starts with a stunning flight to Lukla, the gateway to Everest. But from Lukla, the path diverges. Instead of the typical Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek route, you'll head towards Paiya, a remote village. Get ready to test your limits right from the start – the first challenge awaits you: conquering the scenic Kari La Pass (3,080m) with its captivating mountain panoramas.

Hidden villages like Pangkoma, Nigmsa, and Kothe will welcome you with their unique cultures as you continue the trek. Unlike the bustling crowds of the Ebc hiking route, these villages offer a glimpse into a more authentic way of life.

An extra day at Tangnag allows you to explore the Charpate Himal Glacier, allowing your body to adjust to the high altitude. Following the trail via Khare, you'll reach Mera Peak Base Camp, where pre-climbing training with your expert guide equips you for the summit push.

This 19-day Mera Peak Climb itinerary uses a two-camp strategy (base camp and high camp) instead of one. This strategy maximizes your chances of reaching the top and enjoying the unparalleled Himalayan vistas. 

The Mera Peak High Camp trek involves challenging glacier hikes and moraine crossings. You have to navigate Mera Glacier and climb over rocky moraine fields. But the final push from High Camp is gradual, with only the last 30 to 40 meters to the summit demanding steeper, snowy terrain that might require crampons and ice axes.

The reward at the peak is unlike anything you've ever experienced. Standing at the Mera Peak and witnessing one of the finest panoramas of five 8,000-meter giants is a memory that will stay with you forever. After celebrating your outstanding achievement, you'll return to Lukla.

However, the return journey is just as challenging and adventurous as the ascent. Retrace your steps back to Kothe from Mera Peak Base Camp. 

Following the off-the-beaten track, you’ll trek to Thuli Kharka. From here, you’ll traverse another challenging mountain pass – Zatrwa La (4,620m). From the pass, you can see lovely views of Numbur Himal, Kusum Kanguru, Cho Oyu, Kongde and even Mera Peak itself. 

After conquering the pass, trek back to Lukla for your return flight to Kathmandu, marking the conclusion of your Mera Peak climb in Nepal. 

So, why choose the Mera Peak Expedition in Nepal?

Unlike other trekking peaks in Nepal, it is a more adventurous and less difficult peak-climbing expedition. While the climb is undoubtedly challenging, requiring physical and mental strength, it requires less technical expertise than other peaks. This makes Mera Peak a perfect option for novice and experienced climbers seeking an authentic mountaineering experience amidst marvelous Himalayan scenery.

The entire Mera peak climbing routes offer jaw-dropping vistas of the Everest region. As you trek this less-travelled route, you'll pass through remote valleys and immerse yourself in the rich culture of the legendary Sherpa people. Next, you'll also enjoy a hike through Makalu Barun National Park and observe the variety of flora and fauna. 

Overall, this Mera Peak expedition package captures the true essence of trekking in Nepal. It combines the thrill of peak ascent with breathtaking scenery, cultural immersion, and a touch of wilderness exploration. It's a Himalayan adventure that you'll always remember.

Today's trek takes you deeper into the heart of the Hinku Valley, where the magic truly unfolds. As you climb higher, the tree lines fade away, revealing a landscape sculpted by glaciers and wind.

You'll stumble on two hidden gems along the trail- the ancient Gompas of Gondishung and Lunsumba. These serene Buddhist shrines testify to the region's rich spiritual heritage. The backdrop to these gompas is nothing short of spectacular. 

Behold the towering peaks like Charapate Himal, Mera Peak (your ultimate goal), Kusum Kanguru, and Thamserku. After a few hours of trekking, you arrive in Tangnag, a picture-perfect spot for an overnight stay.

Today's all about acclimatization! To help your body adjust to the thin mountain air, you'll spend a day exploring Tangnag village and its surroundings. It's crucial to give yourself this extra time before pushing higher.

But that doesn't mean a full day of rest. Here's a fantastic option: an acclimatization hike to the Charpate Himal Glacier. This acclimatization hike takes you to a higher altitude, gradually preparing your body for the rugged terrain, thin air, and steeper climbs ahead.

The Charpate Himal Glacier is beautiful and holds religious significance for the Sherpa people. Standing on the glacier, you'll savor remarkable views of Mera Peak's north face. After enjoying the scenery, return to your teahouse. 

The rest of the day is to relax and recharge. Because acclimatization involves more than physical exertion, giving your body time to adjust is also essential. Relax, enjoy a good book, or chat with fellow trekkers.

Along the way, you'll traverse the mighty Hinku and Shar Glaciers, adding another layer of adventure to your journey. Passing through glacial moraines, you'll trek toward a charming valley. The trail takes a steeper turn, leading you up to Khare.

Upon reaching Khare, the north face of Mera Peak will greet you with its majestic presence. Enjoy this astounding sight before grabbing lunch.

Khare bustles with activity as it's a popular spot for trekkers and climbers to acclimatize and prepare for their ascents. You'll spot colorful tents around the village, creating a vibrant atmosphere. You might even meet fellow climbers and share stories under the gorgeous Himalayan sky.

Today’s hike takes you to Mera Base Camp via the Mera La Glacier (5,400 meters). It’s a short distance, but the altitude will slow you down. 

The trail starts easy but gets steeper and rockier as you approach the glacier. Take your time and watch your footing to avoid injuries. Wear a helmet here – there’s a chance of falling rocks. Crampons might be needed, too. 

The glacier descent is short, but the walk is challenging. The awe-inspiring sights of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, and other giants will motivate you. After crossing the moraine and glacier on the north side, you’ll descend to the base camp of Mera Peak. Lunch and a short rest await you. 

In the afternoon, your guide will lead a climbing skills training session. You’ll learn to walk using the fixed rope and how to use equipment like ice axes, harnesses, ascenders, and crampons. 

After practice, head back to base camp for a well-deserved rest. Getting enough sleep is crucial before your climb to conserve energy.

Today’s the day your Mera Peak climb truly begins. You’ll trek to the High Camp of Mera Peak, pushing above 5,500 meters, where every step will be challenging. 

There is no technical climbing yet, but you’ll be back on the Mera Glacier following gentle snow slopes towards High Camp. Walking over glaciers and terminal moraines is tough – take it slow. After walking for a while, you reach the crevasses zone, which requires careful navigation with your climbing gear. 

Before arriving at High Camp, the crew will set up a warm tent for you to rest. Once there, enjoy hot drinks and soak in the astonishing views. You’ll get close-up panoramas of Mera Peak, Everest, Makalu, Nuptse, and Lhotse. 

Rest well, stay hydrated, and conserve energy for tomorrow’s summit push.

This is it – the summit day! It’s the most challenging and rewarding part of the 19 Days Mera Peak Climb. 

An early rise before 2 am is crucial. It’s a long day; reaching the summit before afternoon is best to avoid strong winds and potential weather changes. So, be prepared to trek in the dark. 

Fuel up with a light breakfast and gear up with a headlamp. You’ll start climbing under the guidance of an experienced guide, following fixed ropes. 

The climb is gradual and non-technical compared to other trekking peaks in Nepal. Despite being the highest trekking peak, Mera Peak has a straightforward trail, making it less challenging, except for the final stretch. 

The last 40-50 meters to the summit are the toughest. It has a steep and exposed section requiring assistance with fixed ropes, crampons, ice axes, and jumars (ascent devices). 

Once you conquer Mera Peak, prepare to be blown away! Savor the mind-blowing views of the five highest mountains in the world: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. Celebrate your immense achievement, capture photos, and soak in the moment. 

After successfully climbing Mera Peak, you descend to Khare through the same route. Be cautious, as the icy and snowy trail can be slippery. Upon reaching Khare, enjoy a hot meal and some well-deserved rest.

On your Mera Peak Climb, we have added an extra day as a buffer. This day allows us to adjust the plan if we face unexpected challenges, like bad weather, injuries, sickness, or altitude problems that might prevent someone from climbing on summit day. 

If everything goes smoothly according to the planned itinerary, we’ll skip this day and keep climbing as planned. But if something unexpected comes up, this extra day gives us time to wait and make adjustments to ensure a safe and successful summit push. 

Our experienced guides will make the final decisions, always prioritizing your safety as we work towards reaching the top.

Essential Info

Physical Fitness

Many people have questions as to what level of physical fitness is required for visiting Nepal, and that is extremely reliant on what activity the visitor is engaging in. With that said, for a standard trek of moderate grading (Everest Base Camp Trek is an example of moderate) the daily activity will be 7-8 hours, and elevation will generally not exceed 5,500 meters. The day’s trekking is sustained and will involve both long steep climbs, and descents with a variety of terrain underfoot from well-trodden paths, to rocks covered with ice or snow. A typical day would include a number of climbs or descents of 500 meters or more, starting after breakfast, resting at lunch, then continuous trekking until arriving at the teahouse.

In preparation for the trekking and climbing, it is important to begin a training requirement at least 4 months before departing for Nepal. Three to four hours of aerobic exercise like running, walking, swimming, cycling & some gym work per week is the minimum and most will find it beneficial to add some basic strength training to their physical fitness routine. One of the best ways to prepare is to take practice hikes with a daypack roughly the same weight as what you will be taking on the trek. Do this only after a baseline of fitness has been reached. Moving fast is not the end goal, rather endurance is the focus, and will provide a more enjoyable and safe adventure.

Trekking and climbing Seasons in Nepal

There are two main seasons in which Nepal sees the most amount of visitors. Fall (September through November) being the most popular, and spring (March to May) coming in close behind. The summer months of June, July and August are the monsoon season and as such the trails are mostly washed out, and roads can sometimes be impassible due to landslide activates. Not to mention the view is non-existent. Still, there are a few places that lie in rain shadow areas and see significantly less rain if any at all, and summer can be a good time to visit these places. 

Winter in Nepal is dry, with very cold nights where temperatures can drop to -20°C at the highest altitudes, but the days are pleasant and sunny. Additionally, the trails are much less crowded during this time of year. In Kathmandu, maximum daytime temperatures reach around 20°C.

Fall is the most popular because it’s after the monsoons, and the air is dry, the days are sunny, and everything is green in the lower valleys from the excessive rains. Spring is a popular choice because some rain returns, but the weather is generally warm and dry, and flowers are in bloom in the lower elevations.

Trekking Day

A typical trekking day begins with a cup of tea at around 6 in the morning. It is advised to pack your trekking gears in a duffle bag and essential supplies in your day pack in these early hours. After having breakfast, we begin the trek and head along the trail at around 8 am. The morning walk is designed to be longer as we begin with refreshed bodies and enthusiasm. Following a good morning’s walk, we make stop for lunch at around 11.30 am. The lunch involves group meals enjoying the vicinity around the stop. You can explore the surrounding or use the time according to your own consent. After resting for about an hour or two, we resume our trek to reach teahouse or camp by 3-4 pm. The afternoon walk is relatively shorter and can involve games and side trips as organized by the trekking guides. You also can enjoy breaks during the trek to relax, read or stroll around the area. You can converse with the local people and observe their lifestyle. Dinner is served around 7 in the evening to round off the day.

Meals and Accommodations

During the length of the trek, the accommodation style is commonly referred to as teahouse. These are family-run basic lodges that fill the role of the restaurant, meeting place, and boarding house for tourists. Electricity can be found in the rooms, which means one light bulb, and one or two outlets for charging electronics. The common areas are also lit by electricity. Teahouses may use solar, hydroelectric, or have electrical lines running into the village, so the commonality and availability of electricity may vary.

Most teahouses have private rooms, though if the trek is in a more remote or high altitude place dormitories are the norm. Each room has 1 or 2 single beds with basic bedding, and the bathroom is shared. Expect a mix of western and squat style toilets in the bathrooms.

Breakfast and dinner are taken at the teahouse and these lodges have large family style dining rooms centered on a stove to provide heat. The menu will have Nepali style western foods such as pasta, pizza, pancakes, burgers, and fries. Also on the menu is the traditional Dal Bhat meal. This is a lentil soup with rice and vegetable or meat curry. Most menus will also offer a smattering of local cuisine.

Internal Flight Delays

Nepal is an incredible country of mountains and valleys, rivers and green rolling hills. With this incredible diversity of landscapes, road travel can be extremely time consuming and flights within Nepal to reach popular trekking destinations is a must. Along with this mountainous terrain also comes the possibility of in climate weather. Not to mention the incredibly high number of visitors during peak seasons makes internal flight delays a very real possibility. To manage this possibility, it may be helpful to have a few extras days on either end of your tour. If any cancellations or flight delays do occur (high chances of flight delays from around Kathmandu to Lukla, Everest region), we also provide services to arrange helicopter to help you to be on your schedule on the premises of Civil Aviation Rules in Nepal which state that helicopters can fly if the visibility is 1500m. The cost ranges from USD350 to USD650 according to the number of passengers. The payment can be made either to the helicopter company or to us directly and can be made either by cash or using a credit card. It will also be helpful to purchase and review your insurance as some of the alternative measures for travel may be covered. Flight insurance too may cover changing your international flight if necessary.

Travel Insurance

Many expeditions and tours require that travel insurance is purchased prior to arriving in Nepal, but other treks and tours may not. However, travel insurance is definitely an important consideration. There are a number of reasons to consider insurance. Firstly, it may be required, so check to see what is being asked for by the company. Second, Nepal is a landlocked country, and there are few direct flights. Travel in and out can encounter some disruptions and if purchasing insurance, make sure flight delays and cancellations are included. The next reason to choose insurance is that, though every safeguard is in place during your tour, there are always extenuating circumstances that may result in an accident. Read the fine print of insurance policies to ensure trekking or any other activity you are engaging in is covered, as some policies have stopped covering trekking in certain places. It is impossible to have a relaxing trip without the comfort of good insurance, so do the research and choose carefully.

Nepal Visa Entry Procedure

For entry into Nepal, there are visa requirements everyone (except Indian nationals) must complete before being allowed to pass through immigration. This is for air travel as well as overland transportation. Most visitors may obtain a visa to enter Nepal, however, there are exceptions. There are a number of entry points where you can obtain the visa upon arriving by land, but Tribhuvan International Airport is the only one for air transport.

Visa on Arrival Tourist Visa

Three options are available for entry

15-day single entry: US $30

30-day single entry: US $50

90-day multiple entries: US $125

Please have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the time of entry, and have cash ready, preferably in US dollars, though there are other currencies Nepal Immigration accepts. If you are entering via overland, you must have US cash and 3 passport photos. For arrival by air, the kiosks at the airport take your picture for you.

Acute Mountain Sickness is usually seen in un-acclimatized people shortly after ascent to high altitudes. The condition occurs due to the thinning of air as the altitude increases. The condition, if not taken seriously and treated immediately, can be life-threatening and its symptoms can be seen generally above 3000 meters. Some of the symptoms of AMS are nausea, vomiting, tiredness, shortness of breath and cerebral pain. The treks are designed to properly acclimatize you to the change in high altitude climate and sufficient precautionary measures too are taken to take utmost caution. We also equip our staffs with cell phones and satellite phones in occurrence of any emergency cases. We are greatly driven to keep the safety and security of our clients as our foremost concern.

Drinking Water

Water is essential for life, and clean water is imperative while on holiday. When choosing to visit less developed countries it is a concern that all travelers should consider. A few options are available when trekking or traveling in Nepal that will mitigate any chances of drinking contaminated water which could cause disruption of an otherwise fun adventure. The first consideration to take into account is that tap water should not be ingested. That even means when brushing your teeth. Most will choose to buy bottled water and if doing so make sure the cap has not been opened previously. Plastic bottle refuse is a problem, and with that being said there are other options on the market to assist in making water drinkable. Your local outdoor store can help with choosing what option might be best to use in conjunction with a reusable bottle. Your guide can also steer you to water that has been filtered and purified so ask him or her what is available.

Arrival Instruction

Upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, our company representatives are stationed to welcome you to the country. We request you to carefully look for your name being held by our representatives following the events upon landing. The representatives are responsible to escort you to your hotel in Kathmandu. You will see men offering you to carry luggage and take you to your destination as you exit the airport. We request you to pay no attention to these people and follow the designated representatives and follow their instructions. You will also need to keep an eye on your luggage and belongings to avoid any complications.
