Overview

The Mera Peak climb is a fairly taxing physical challenge at high altitude, however, you build your mountain fitness during the trek to reach the mountain which involves ten days of walking over at times steep terrain between 3000m and 5000m. The paths are well made but some of the ascents are long and sustained.

Mera peak climbing is an extremely exciting peak-climbing adventure that is easier than other peaks in the Everest region. Scenically bound by the beautiful mountains and breathtaking views of Makalu, Barunche, Mount Everest, Amadablam, Lhotse, and Cho-Oyu, Mera Peak climbing is the ultimate choice for every peak climber.

Although there are 3 Mera Peak climbing routes, namely – Mera North (6476m), Mera Central (6461m), and Mera South (6064m), we normally operate our summit towards Mera Peak via the central route due to huge crevasses and frequent glacial changes in the north and south route.

Our journey starts from Lukla mountain airstrips towards Chhetra-La pass (4943m) which seems a bit tough at the beginning, but your effort will be rewarded with spectacular scenery, and ultimately, you will end up with one of the finest viewpoints in the Everest region.

 

Day to Day Itinerary Expand/Collapse All

Day 1 : Arrival at Kathmandu (1,350m/4,593ft).

Upon your arrival, make your way to the airport terminal after completing the immigration formalities. Our representative From Unique sherpa Trek & Expedition will be holding a placard with your name or our company's name written on it.

Day 2 : Fly to Lukla and trek to Chhutanga (3,110m/10,236ft).

We take a morning flight to Lukla. If we are lucky enough to get a ticket for the first flight, we get to fly directly from Kathmandu to Lukla. If not, we drive to Rammechhap and proceed to Lukla by flight. After reaching Lukla, we meet the rest of the crew, sort our luggage, and trek to Chatunga. The trail goes through up through forests and fields. Chatunga, with a couple of stone houses, lies surrounded by cliffs and mountains. We spend the night at a local teahouse.

Day 3 : Chhutanga to Thuli Kharka (4,300m/14,110ft) via Zetrawala Pass (4,605m/15,070ft).

From Chatunga, we head to our next destination Thuli Kharka via the Zatra La Pass. We walk past rhododendron forests and grazing pastures of yaks. It is a tough crossing, and we can feel the altitude. We climb the Kalo Himal ridge covered with stones and prayer flags. A couple of minutes later, we come to Zatrwa La Pass. The pass separates the Khumbu Valley and Hinku Valley. We stop for a while to take pictures and soak in the views. Later we walk on a stony path to Thuli Kharka. Thuli Kharka, which means 'big meadow,' is surrounded by big boulders and stubby grass and shrubs. Used as a camp by yak herders, Thuli Kharka only has a couple of teahouses. On reaching Thuli Kharka, we head to a teahouse and take a well-deserved rest.

Day 4 : Trek to Kothe (3,691m/12,108ft) from Thuli Kharka.

Head on to the Upper Hinku valley. As we get higher, the treeline disappears. There are no major villages at this altitude, only Kharkas or grazing meadows for yaks. On the way, we stop at Gondishung for tea and refreshments. Stunning views of Mera Peak, Charpati Himal, Kusum Kanguru, and Thamserku delight us.We also visit Lungsumgba Gompa, a 200-year old Buddhist shrine. The local crew will pray for the well-being of the team and a successful ascent at the shrine. After an hour of walking, we reach Thaknak. From our teahouse, we savor a close-up view of Charpate Himal.

Day 5 : Trek to Thangnak (4,357m/14,322ft) from Kothe.

Head on to the Upper Hinku valley. As we get higher, the treeline disappears. There are no major villages at this altitude, only kharka or grazing meadows for yaks. On the way, we stop at Gondishung for tea and refreshments. Stunning views of Mera Peak, Charpati Himal, Kusum Kanguru, and Thamserku delight us.We also visit Lungsumgba Gompa, a 200-year old Buddhist shrine. The local crew will pray for the well-being of the team and a successful ascent at the shrine. After an hour of walking, we reach Thaknak. From our teahouse, we savor a close-up view of Charpati Himal.

Day 6 : Trek to Khare (5,057m/16,598ft) from Thangnak.

Today's trek takes us to Khare. It is a short but difficult hike as we are steadily gaining altitude. We ascend the Dig Glacier and weave past the glacial lake of Charpate Tal. We slowly descend to Dig Kharka. From here, we get magnificent views of Kyeshar Glacier, Mera Peak, and Chapati Himal. Climb up the Hinku Nup and Shar glaciers before finally making your way to Khare. Khare, also called the Mera Peak Base Camp, lies at the foot of Mera Peak. There are a couple of teahouses and climbing gear and equipment outlets. After checking in at a lodge, enjoy the incredible view of Mera Peak's north face.

Day 7 : At Khare, acclimatization day and pre-climbing training.

An acclimatization day before your climb lets you take part in pre-climb training conducted by our guides. You will get to try out your climbing skills before making it to the mountain. Ascend and descend on the rocky slope using harness and climbing equipment. Learn to make knots and the correct way to belay and rappel. If this is your first Himalayan peak, this training will be helpful for you as our experienced climbing guides will share some practical knowledge and really helpful tips that will help you do a safe climb. There will be a final gear and equipment check, and you will pack for your summit push. There are gear and equipment rental outlets, and you rent out personal gear and equipment if you wish.
 

Day 8 : Hike to Mera High Camp (5,780m/18,960ft).

A steep and rocky path leads us to Mera La. We can enjoy splendid views of Mera Peak's three summits – Mera South (6065m), Mera North (6476m), and Mera Central (6461m). The summit we are trying to reach is Mera Central. A straightforward ascent up the Mera Glacier brings us to Mera Peak high camp, and It is an easy hike with a gradual incline. Up to this point, there is no technical climbing. The only issue is high altitude and cold, which makes taking each step a struggle. At Mera High Camp, comforting hot drinks and soup will be waiting for us prepared by our local crew. Mount Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8516m), Cho Oyu(8188m), and Makalu(8485m) - five of the 14 eight-thousanders are visible from the high camp. You can also enjoy amazing views of Chamlang (7319m), Baruntse (7129m), and Gaurishanker (7134m).

Day 9 : Summit to Mera Peak (6,476m/21,246ft).

We get ready and hit the slopes at 2 AM. Our headlights are lighting the way we rope up and walk secured by man-rope. We cross the Mera glacier and climb gradually. The terrain is not that difficult to maneuver, but the cold air and low oxygen level slow us down. The last 40-50 meters to the summit is the hardest and the most challenging climb. On a steep incline, we use fixed rope and jumars to climb to the snowy dome of the Mera Peak summit. By 9-10 AM, we reach the summit. We celebrate our conquest while enjoying the close-up views of Mount Everest (8848m), Makalu(8481m, Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse(8516m), and Cho Oyu (8201m). After capturing this historic moment in our cameras and leaving mementos (if you brought any) at the summit, we head down to High Camp. We only spend 5 to 10 minutes at the summit.

Day 10 : Back to Kothe (3,690m/12,109ft) via Khare.

We return via the same route to Kothe. The mountains are no longer visible as the rocky cliffs conceal the incredible views.

Day 11 : Trek to Thuli Kharka (4,300m/14,107ft) from Kothey.

We make an ascent to the west of Hinku Valley, walking down a trail covered with rhododendron trees. It is an up and down trail. We arrive at Thuli Kharka, a summer camp of local yak herders, a final hike up a path.

Day 12 : Trek to Lukla via Zetrawala Pass (4,600m/15,082ft).

Leaving Thuli Kharka, we once again cross the Zatrwa La pass (4,600m) pass. In about 2 hours we reach the pass. The view is incredible, and we can view part of the trail that we crossed. Hinku Valley, Number Himal, Kongde, Dudh Kunda, and Khumbila look amazing. We walk to Lukla taking a downward trail.

At Lukla, we enjoy a hot shower and a good meal. In the evening we have a small party to celebrate the success of our trip. Our local crew join us and make our last evening in the mountains memorable.

Day 13 : Early morning, fly from Lukla to Kathmandu.
