Tour description

Mera Peak Climbing is a 15-Days (Arrival to Departure) Trekking and Climbing trip in Everest Region of Nepal, this trip starts with 30 minutes scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Enjoy the stunning view of worlds 5 highest mountains above 8000 meters: Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga and Cho-Oyu. Explore the traditional Sherpa villages and alpine forest trails of the Hinku valley, you will climb the biggest trekking peak in Nepal at the elevation of 6461 meter above sea level.

The Mera peak trek (6461m) is famed for the being the biggest trekking peak in Nepal, though there is little technical difficulty required to climb. Mera Peak rises to the South of Everest and dominates the beautiful and remote valleys of Hinku and Hongu. The ascent of Mera Peak is made from the Mera La pass (5415m) on the Northern Face, which connects the populated valley of Hongu to the Hinku valley. The late Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tensing were the first climbers to do the Mera Peak Trek, following this very route on 20th May 1953. The Mera Peak Trek begins in Lukla (after a short flight from Kathmandu). From Lukla six days of trekking will see you through fascinating Sherpa Villages to Mera Base Camp situated at the base of an immense glacier leading to the Mera La Pass.As the ascent of Mera Peak continues to Mera high Camp is set up at 5800m, from where the summit ascent can be attempted. Mera Peak has two distinct summits, the main one being the Northern Summit (6476m), which is reached by skirting the Central Summit (6461m) and following a classic snow ridge to the top. Even though the Mera Peak climb is technically straightforward, there are some crevasses to manoeuvre around, and the route can be long and demanding after a fresh snowfall. The climb from Mera La to the Summit is gradual with an outstanding mountain panorama of the Eastern Nepal Himalayas always in sight. The peaks visible include Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho-Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m), Kangchenjunga (8586m), Nuptse (7855m) and Chamlang (7319m) amongst many others.Highlights: • 30 minutes scenic flight to and Lukla • Traditional Sherpa villages and alpine forest trails of the Hinku valley • Stunning view of worlds five 8000 meter mountains: Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu and Kanchenjunga • Crossing the Mera-La pass over 5350m • Climbing and summit Mera Peak at the elevation of 6461m Itinerary:Day 1: Arrive at Kathmandu airport (1340m/4396ft) and transfer to Hotel.Day 2: Fly to Lukla and Trek to Chutanga (3050m/1006ft)Day 3: Chutanga to Chatrala (4710m/15453ft)Day 4: Chatrala to Kothe (4200m/13780ft)Day 5: Kothe to Tangnag (4358m/14298ft)Day 6: Acclimatization day at TangnagDay 7: Tangnag to Khare (5100m/16732ft)Day 8: Acclimatization at KhareDay 9: Khare to Mera High Camp (5780m/18963ft)Day 10: Summit Mera (6461m/21198ft) and back to Khare (5100m/16732ft)Day 11: Khare to Kothe (4200m/13780ft)Day 12: Kothe to Chatrala (4710m/15453ft)Day 13: Chatrala to Lukla (2800m/9186ft)Day 14: Fly to Kathmandu (1340m/4396ft)Day 15: Final Departure
