Kathmandu To Kathmandu
March To May And September To November
Mera Peak is located at an altitude of 6461 m on the edge of the Khumbu region in the Everest Himalayan range. Climbing Mera Peak is an adventurous trip and the highest trekking peak which shares the both region of Everest and Makalu region. The trip through the trail of Mera Peak is a bit physically demanding because its altitude through the ascending snow slope does not exceed more than 40 degrees. The travelers are rewarded with the beautiful views of Mt Everest (8848 m), Mt Lhotse (8516 m), Mt Makalu (8485 m), Mt Kangchenjunga (8586 m), and Mt Cho- Oyu (8201 m) which are the 5 mountains out of 6 most noteworthy mountains on the planet. In your way to climbing Mera Peak, you pass through the uniquely traditional Sherpa villages and Alpine forest of Hinku Valley containing blue pine and Rhododendron forests which reach Mera Base Camp. In order to have the thrilling adventure to Mera Peak, travelers need good mountaineering skills and a special permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. Mount Glory Treks and Expedition can manage and design an organized itinerary and other programs for Mera Peak climbing according to the interest of an individual willing to try the thrilling adventure throughout the year.
Namaste and Welcome!
This is how we greet our guests as soon as you arrive in Kathmandu at Tribhuvan International Airport. You can easily recognize Mount Glory's representatives, who will be there with our banners. After picking you up, the first phase of our journey is to travel to your hotel. During the transit from TIA to the hotel, your representative will give you a briefing regarding some of our services, including but not limited to Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp.
Once you reach the hotel, you will have some time to freshen up. You can relax or go for a short roam outside. In the evening of the same day, we will hold a small meeting, during which you will meet with your travel guide. They will then give you a detailed recount of the Summiting Mera Peak Climbing routes in Nepal. This will include the climbing itinerary, safety procedures, and risk, along with the scenarios you will face in the coming days.
After all, this is done, you will be free to spend the remainder of the day as you please.
Your second day will start with a hearty meal at your hotel. Once you are done with this, we take the day knowing and exploring the brick city streets of Kathmandu Valley. This will be the day of the Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing Tour.
On this tour, you will witness breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Patan Durbar Square. This day will also consist of visiting popular religious sites such as Swoyambhunath, Bauddhanath, and Pashupatinath Temple.
Besides these major tourist attractions in Kathmandu, the rest of the away will be filled with the tour guide filling you in with tales from local culture and tradition. Along with this, you will experience local food and traditions as well.
Your journey towards Mera Peak finally starts on your third day in Nepal. Your journey on the third day is divided into two parts. The first part of the day is about flying to Lukla via airplane and the rest of the day is about trekking.
You wake up and have a warm meal at your hotel. Once you are done with breakfast, you will board the domestic flight to Lukla airport. The flight will not take long as it only lasts around forty-five minutes. The rest of the day will be spent on a four to five-hour trek. Once you reach there, you will need to get a local area permit from the local authority. This is because there are lots of areas that require special permits to enter.
After you get the permits,the trek will be filled with Buddhist Mani walls and Prayer wheels will start. Past the journey of Buddhist Mani Walls, the next phase is about thick forests of rhododendron and pine trees. This forest is just below the Kalo Himal Ridge as you reach the Chutanga. Here you will rest for an overnight stay!
Day four is about acclimatization as you rest for most of the day resting at Chutanga. You will need to get used to the climate as the rest of the journey/ mountaineering course will be about climbing routes that are both cold and beautiful Mera Peak. There is not much to say about Chutang besides that the best panoramic mountain views surround it. Along with this, you can and will need to do some light exercises to get used to the oxygen-derived air you will face further in your peak climb.
Our mountaineering course begins with a light breakfast on the fifth day of your Nepal tour and the second day of the Mera Peak Climb. After breakfast, we start our journey as we descend toward Zatrwa la pass. During this journey, you will naturally witness some of the most breathtaking views of the snow-capped Himalayan range.
Once we reach the pass, we get a full view of the beautiful and remarkable peaks such as Number Himal, Karyolang Peak, and more. The total duration of the trek for this day will be roughly around six hours. That said, ascending the Mera peak is rather tough. Therefore, it would be helpful if you did some warmups before you began.
You will stay at a small lodge at Thuli Kharka.
On the sixth day, you can expect the day to be filled with the greenery of the evergreen pine forests. After a light meal at the lodge, we start the journey through the dense forests filled with oaks, pines, and alluring rhododendrons. Besides this, as we trek through the tough terrains along the banks of the Hinku River, we get our first glimpse of Mera Peak,
That said, we would still need to travel far to reach there. Our destination would be Kothe for this day, and after roughly six to seven hours of trekking, we reach our destination after a steep uphill climb. You can witness both the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayan range along Mera Peak along with the evergreen pine forests from this small village located beside the Hinku Valley.
The seventh day of your climb to Mera peak in Nepal will be somewhat of a relief as you don't need to trek much as the day before. The total trekking hour for day seventh of your Himalayan climbing to Mera Peak is roughly around six hours, with our destination being Thangnag village.
To reach our destination for the day, we would need to walk along the hills of the Hinku River and cross Gondishung. Along with this, we would also need to cross Lungsiungba Gumba before we reach our destination. We can constantly see Mera Peak along the trails, reminding us to fight on and encouraging us to conquer its peak.
After roughly a day of trekking through the bare and rough routes of this mountaineering course, we reach our destination of Thangnag, where we stay overnight at a local lodge surrounded by friendly locals and delicious local cuisine.
Day eight is another day for acclimatization since and this day will mark the starting of the second phase of the trek. Regardless of how experienced you are, you will need a day here since we will be traveling above 5000 meters on the next phase of the journey. Since the oxygen will get thinner with each passing day, our body gets used to traversing at higher altitudes.
As you spend the day in this village, you can roam the open pasture lands or spend the day learning about the local culture and trying out local cuisines. The decision is all up to you. While we say this, be sure not to exhaust ourselves.
Form Thangnag, our day begins with a light breakfast. After our bellies are filled, we begin our journey by walking along the ways of Moraine. The first destination is Hinku Nub.
As we travel, the weather on this part of himalayan climbing will be significantly colder and harder. The trail to our destination for the day is a steep climb. It is a relatively short trek of roughly five to six hours. Therefore, if you are in your peak condition, you should still have some energy to enjoy the views of Mera North from Khare.
Once we reach our destination, we spend the overnight at a local lodge with warm local cuisines and local culture.
Reaching Khare will signify that we have entered the hardest phase of our Mera Peak Climb. This is because we need to learn how to climb the peak of Khare. The next phase of our journey will be significantly harder as we would need to climb steep hills while keeping our breathing stable.
While you will not need climbing gears immediately, you will rely heavily on the gears forward. Therefore, you would need to know how to use them as well.
The entire day will be spent learning the proper climbing techniques and what to do during emergencies. That said, you will have adequate time to rest and enjoy the place in the evening.
On the eleventh day, we finally set the Mera peak as our target and set forth after a light breakfast. Our destination for this day will be Mera La Pass, just a bit above Mera Base Camp. As you may expect, while the journey is only around five to six hours, it will be significantly tougher.
As we traverse the rough terrain, we will need to stop at Mera Base Camp for a short rest and equip ourselves with the right gears and climbing equipments. This includes but is not limited to oxygen, climbing shoes, warm gloves, and jackets.
Once the safety personnel at Mera Base Camp has verified that your gears are up to the recommended safety standard and you know the proper procedure, we depart towards the Mera La Pass, where we stay overnight in a local teahouse.
Our journey on this day will be relatively short as we only need to trek and climb for three to four hours. Compared to the previous trek, this will be relatively easy.
As we walk through the rough and rugged trails of Mera La Pass, our journey will be filled with stunning views of snow and mountain peaks. That said, you must ensure that every piece of your mountaineering equipment/ Climbing equipment is at its peak condition, as a small failure can mean being severely wounded, getting lost, or worse.
To ensure this doesn't happen, you will check your gears periodically. Once you get through these ordeals, the view from Mera High Camp will be well worth the journey. We can view the beautiful Mount Everest (including Everest Base Camp), Mount Makalu, Mount Cho You, Mount Baruntse, and Mount Nuptse.
The day will end with an overnight stay at Mera High Camp.
This is the day when we conquer Mera Peak. We start our journey early in the morning, and as we reach Mera Peak, we will be just in time for the glorious sunrise. After reaching the summit, we will finally experience and understand why Mera Peak is among some of the most recommended peak climbs in Nepal. The view from the peak is something that cannot be explained in words as we stare at the clouds below and get this surreal feeling.
Our trance here will be cut short as we descend back down to Kharka and reach the valley by the evening. Our day usually ends with a warm overnight stay at a local teahouse.
While Mera Peak is not a teahouse trek, since we will spend a big chunk of our nights in teahouses, we can technically call a part of this journey a Teahouse Trek as well.
Day fourteen of our journey is optional since the core concept is to be an extra day for bad weather. If the weather is good, we will spend the additional day in Kathmandu after we reach there. However, we can switch this day with any other day for bad weather.
In short, this is just an optional day we will skip if nothing goes wrong.
Similar to how we ascended through the Hinku Valley, we will descend from the snowcapped peak to the evergreen forests of the Hinku Valley. Naturally, we will encounter the same beautiful pine forests along with the beautiful rhododendron forests. We look at Mera Peaks, i.e., Mera North, Mera South, and Mera central, before we end the day at a local teahouse.
On this day, we made a five-hour-long trek to Lukla. Similar to how we ascended, we make a slow descent over Zatrwa La Pass and reach Lukla.
Unlike our ascend, we will have plenty of time to explore the markets and enjoy the local cuisines at Lukla on our descent. Here we can enjoy the scenery, museums or monasteries as you please.
After an early morning visit across the Lukla, we take a flight back to Kathmandu. The journey will be a short one.
Once you arrive in Kathmandu, you will be escorted back to your booked hotel. That said, you can do anything you want once you reach there.
It's the time for departure, and after a packed morning, our representatives will escort you back to the Tribhuvan International Airport after summiting Mera Peak.
That said, if you want to and have the means to extend your stay, we will be happy to provide you with additional services. Since this is a hard journey, you will feel treks such as Everest Base Camp Treks, Annapurna Base Camp treks, Annapurna Circuit Treks, and Mardi Himal Trekking and such relatively easier. If you want to, Mount Glory will be happy to provide further services.
You can change this itinerary, services, accommodation, duration of this trip etc.to suit your needs and budget. The choice is yours. Let us help you tailor your perfect holiday.
