Mera Peak Climbing (6476m) The tallest hiking peak in Nepal is located in the eastern portion of the Everest Khumbu valley, and Nepal is an exhilarating mountain that is quickly gaining popularity with hikers. All seasoned hikers and novice climbers who aspire to stand on the Himalayan peak with a sense of great accomplishment have the option to climb Mera Peak. An unforgettable experience is lifting the eyes from the summit of Mera Peak and continuing to lift them until, above the clouds, the great frieze of the world's 8000-meter Mountains, including Mount Everest, Mount Kanchenjunga, Mount Makalu, Mount Lhotse, Mount Cho-Oyu, and many other 7000-meter peaks and trekking peaks, is visible.
Mera Peak is a mountain located in Nepal's Sagarmatha Zone, Sankhuwasabha, in the Mahalangur section and Barun sub-part of the Himalayas. After a brief, thrilling flight to the mountain airfield at Lukla, it starts and proceeds through high, picturesque valleys. The climb to Mera Peak is not technically tough, with ascent snow slopes that rarely surpass 30 degrees, yet being physically highly taxing because of the elevation. The summit scheduled for Mera has been meticulously planned to enable gradual acclimatization. The Hinku Valley's virgin woodland is breathtaking to walk through at first, and it offers good acclimatization for the peak itself.
To make sure you all have the essential climbing abilities and courage to reach the summit, Climbing Sherpa is teaching our customized basic rock-climbing courses in Kathmandu and ice climbing courses at Khare (just below Mera peak). Due to recent modifications in the glacial structure, Mera Peak has been classified as a slightly challenging climbing peak by alpine grade quality. It is most pertinent for first-time climbers who have prior high-altitude climbing experience and are in good physical condition. With our unmatched service, top-notch gear, delicious food, knowledgeable guides, and experienced leaders, we guarantee that your Mera trip will be an adventure experience on Nepal's highest trekking peak.
For travellers to Mera Peak Climbing, we can tailor the days based on their preferences and areas of interest. Alternatively, if you have an abundance of free time and want to explore the Everest region in greater detail, the Everest Base Camp Trek, Lobuche Peak Climbing, or the Island Peak Climbing would be a good option.

Welcome to Mountain Guide Trek of Nepal and a hearty Namaste. A Mountain guide Treks representative will welcome you when you arrive (MGT). Pick up your bags and look for our representative at the arrival gate with a Mountain Guide Treks and Expedition display board with the name of the Group leader after finishing your customs formalities (Visa, etc.). After that, you will be taken to the hotel. If there is time after check-in, you will go to the MGT office to meet the other travelers and your hiking guide as well as to make any last-minute preparations for the trip. Everything depends on when you arrive. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel)
You will be brought to Balaju, a natural rock climbing area 3 kilometers from Thamel, as you typically need to undergo a daylong rock climbing course before beginning your journey. We will provide fantastic opportunity for you to develop your physical fitness while learning how to use climbing tools such a rope, harness, ice ax, and crampons. As an alternative, we will begin a half-day sightseeing tour with our knowledgeable tour guide to some of Kathmandu's most significant historical and religious sites. Some of these locations, including Durbar Square, the revered Hindu temple of Pashupati Nath, the well-known "Monkey Temple" (Swayambunath), and the Buddhist shrine, are regarded as World Heritage historic Sites (Buddha Nath) .A pre-trip meeting with our trek guide and other team members will take place after you return from the excursion. Mountain Guide Journey will give you a briefing on your trek and give us the chance to talk about any potential problems with our future excursion. You might spend the remaining time exploring Thamel and shopping for additional requirements and necessary items. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel).
You'll be taken to a domestic airport this morning to catch a flight to Lukla. Your first breakfast in the mountains is experienced during the magnificent 40-minute flight up to Tenjin-Hillary airport, where the Mountain Guide Trek team is organizing porters as the guide sorts and divides the burden of luggage to be carried by porters. We set out on our hike into the forest above Lukla on a leisurely day. Through the field, an excellent track goes to the edge of a dwindling rhododendron and pine forest that covers the steep hillsides above Lukla.On an excellent track, we move on steadily, navigating ridges and streams to reach yak kharka, where yaks graze. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
After a traditional Himalayan breakfast this morning, we'll have the entire day to ourselves in camp or go up to a little grassy summit below the Zatra Teng Pass, which will put us at an altitude of about 5,000 feet (4000m). Excellent vistas of the Dudh (milk) Kosi (river) valley as well as our path towards the Zatrwa La are available. We return on foot to Chutanga. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
After spending a day at Chutanga for rest and acclimatization, we continue our long day hike for about 6-7 hours across the Kalo Himal Ridge, which divides the Khumbu from the Hinku valley. The route across this ridge is the Zatrwa La, which leads to a right turn and a steep descent to Tuli Kharka (big pasture), where there are a number of basic lodges. We set a tent close to the lodges. After a lengthy trek, spend the remaining time relaxing at the camp. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp).
After breakfast today, we continue traveling down to the Hinku Valley in Gothey. This is a good location for camping, and there are a number of tea shops around that you may visit in the downtime to observe local culture. We'll set up camp close to the tea shops. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
The following day is another brief day as you hike along the ridge of the Hinku Khola in the shade of Mera Himal. We will eat lunch at Gondishung, a summer herders' community on the west bank of the Hinku Drangka, which is north of where we are traveling. Beyond Gondishung, we reach a 200-year-old Gompa constructed beneath a big boulder so that we might give to burn some juniper at the shrine in hopes of ensuring the summit of Mera Peak. Thagnag is a grazing area during summer, with the most basic of cabins and stores beginning to emerge. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
Here, another day of acclimatization is crucial. It is in a wonderful location surrounded by gorgeous peaks. The picturesque glacial lake Sabal Tsho, which is dammed on a sizable moraine north of Tangnag, is worth a visit. On the sides of Kusum Kanguru, a cairn (5270m) can also be rewarding and helpful for acclimatization. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
From Tagnag, we are ascending today to the Khare Mera Base Camp. We travel to Dig Kharka along the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier, which provides breathtaking views of Charpate Himal. After 3–4 hours of walking, the trail ascends across moraines and reaches the snouts of the Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers. It then climbs more steeply to your camping location at Khare (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp).
After breakfast today, we get ready for ice climbing (this may depend on the time of year and the availability of ice; if neither is present, we just hike around or take a break) just above the Khare, which requires a couple of hours of walking from a location with good views of the Mera La and the ascent route. This will also be an opportunity for you to practice ice climbing for a few hours, and our leader will coach and show you how to do it. After spending a few hours training at the glacier, we will return to camp to finish setting up our gear and packing our mountain bags. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
As you make your way to Mera Base Camp, a fairly short journey provides as much time for acclimatization as possible and a daily stroll. To get to the boulder-strewn bowl below the lower tongue of the Mera Glacier, we must go to the crest of the moraine above Khare and then up a steep scree or snow slope. Following a breathtaking ascent to the pass Mera La (5,415m/17,766ft), we drop 100m (328ft) to the Hongu side and establish base camp in the moraine below the ice. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp).
It can be dangerous to get to Mera High Camp if it has just snowed because there are multiple crevasses nearby. You ascend to the rock band's summit, which is identified by a sizable cairn. Setting up a high camp offers spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Everest. We make a stop at Mera High Camp this evening. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp).
This is a significant day, so we get up around 2.30 a.m. After breakfast, the group will don crampons and tie themselves to a rope before heading to the top. A well-acclimatized group can reach Mera peak's center summit in 3 to 4 hours from the high camp. We may choose to undertake the traverse to the somewhat higher north peak if time and weather allow. The trip leader will decide whether we tackle this excursion, which adds 2–3 hours to the day and is more difficult than the remainder of the climb. Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,029ft), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8338m), Kangchenjunga (8586m), Nuptse (7855m), Lobuche (6145m), and Chamlang (7319m) can all be seen from the summit in stunning views. After the ascent, you return to Khare by taking a break and eating some hot soup in high camp. A long but worthwhile day! (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
This day is primarily reserved as a fallback in case of unanticipated circumstances like weather issues or physical weakness. If earlier than expected, you can take the rest somewhere else nearby.
After the trek to Mount Mera was a huge success, we descended down the Hinku valley to Gothey for our overnight camp halt. Enjoy some local wines or do whatever may help you unwind this evening. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
To get to Tuli Kharka, below the Zatwra La, where we'll stay, we once again ascend through the verdant forest on the west side of the Hinku Valley. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)
The final day of the trek is today, and we begin the final ascent of the journey by climbing a few hundred meters to the top of Zatrwa La. After reaching the summit, we descend to the settlement of Lukla to wrap off the trekking portion. This evening, the crews eat their final meal on the mountain. (Stay the night at a tea house with a full board).
The trip to Kathmandu is often scheduled for the morning, but because of the wind in the afternoon, there is a chance that it may be delayed for reasons unrelated to our control, including inclement weather. Anyway, your guide will take you to the hotel after we return to Kathmandu via plane. After a long journey, you might have some time to unwind, catch your breath, and rest in your hotel. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel).
Today is a free day, so if you'd want to buy some gifts from Nepal for your friends and family, you can visit some local stores or travel to Thamel to look for characteristic Nepalese things. Our guides can help you with this, or you can do it on your own. You could take some extra time today if you're intrigued to see some other parts of Kathmandu! To celebrate the successful completion of the Mera Peak Climb, don't forget that we will be having a wonderful celebration "Farewell supper" with Mountain Guide Trek crew at a typical Nepalese hotel! (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel)
The trip's final day in Nepal is today, so you're bidding goodbye to the mountains and wrapping up your time there. There is nothing to do but organize the images and exchange emails with travel partners. You can go shopping or go sightseeing if you have more time. Mountain Guide Treks will send a representative to pick you up at the airport around three hours prior to the flight's planned departure time.
Please take note that inclement weather frequently causes the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight to be delayed by a few hours or perhaps canceled for one, two, or more days. Even in the most favorable seasons, these situations can arise. As a result, in such circumstances, you must be ready for lengthy waits at the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, as this may occur at the beginning or finish of the trek, or possibly both! We go above and beyond to prevent such delays and book you on the subsequent flight. Nevertheless, we advise you to be ready for unforeseen cancellations or delays and, if at all feasible, to go with a few extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the conclusion of the trip to account for them. If it is possible and our clients desire it, we can also arrange a helicopter rescue in such circumstances. You are free to choose an alternate adventure, such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other regions, in the event that the flight delay or cancellation occurs at the beginning of the trip and lasts so long that it disrupts your onward travel itinerary. You are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for however many days it takes to book a flight to Lukla if you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather to wait for the trip.
Entry visa for Nepal: You can simply obtain a visa upon arrival at Kathmandu's Tribhuwan International Airport by paying $40 or equivalent in foreign currency for a 30-day multiple-entry tourist visa. Similar to that, a $100 fee will get you a 90-day multiple-entry tourist visa. Bring two duplicate passport-size pictures.)
