This untouched village, adorned with sprawling pastures, extends a warm welcome to every traveler. Daily pastoral scenes of yaks, sheep, and their herders become your cherished companions on these trails.

As you journey forth, you’ll traverse through a terrain adorned with rhododendron forests and bamboo groves. The journey’s exotic routes, alongside the presence of magnificent glaciers and panoramic landscapes, have made it a cherished route among trekkers.

From the peak’s summit, a breathtaking spectacle unfolds, revealing the grandeur of Mount Everest and Kanchenjunga. The snow-draped peaks add an extra layer of splendor to your expedition.

Itinerary

Day 1Welcome to Kathmandu

Welcome to Kathmandu. Today, you’ll have the chance to meet some of the team who will be with you on your climb. This is also an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and make any last-minute purchases, such as renting gear you might need for the trip.

Day 2Kathmandu to Lukla (Flight) to Paiya

Depart early for the flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing Hillary Airport in Lukla. The journey offers a diverse range of scenery, from farmlands to hills and mountains. Landing at the high-altitude Lukla airport is quite an experience. After handing over the gear to the porters, set off on your trek to the first overnight stop in Paiya.

Day 3Paiya to Panggom

You’ll cross a wooden bridge over the Dudh Koshi River, and from there, the trail leads to Kar La Pass. Be cautious as the trail can be slippery at times.

Once you’ve crossed the pass, you’ll enter a lush forest of Rhododendron and bamboo, continuing on to Pangkoma, a quintessential Sherpa village. The mountain views from here are breathtaking, including the impressive Dudh Kund Himal.

Day 4Panggom to Ningsow

Embarking on a rocky path through a Rhododendron forest, your journey continues through hills and ridges, with the imposing South Face of Mera Peak as your constant companion. The trail then winds through more forests of pine and Rhododendron until you descend into Ningsow, where you’ll spend the night.

Day 5Ningsow to Chhatra Khola

Today’s journey continues through more Rhododendron forests, though the trail becomes steep and narrow, characteristic of typical Nepal mountain paths. As you reach a stream, you’ll come across a stone cave by the water. Keep an eye out for wildlife in this forested area. The trek continues through the forest, ultimately leading to your overnight stop at Chhatra Khola.

Day 6 Chhatra Khola to Kothe

Today’s trek offers the chance to encounter wildlife like sloth bears or jungle cats, especially as the trail winds through pine and bamboo forests, habitats for many of these creatures.

You’ll come across a picturesque vantage point that offers a stunning view of the Hinku Valley, along with impressive sights of Mera Peak. Additionally, there’s a significant cave, regarded as sacred in Buddhism, showcasing the three elements of Buddha. Following lunch, the route leads along a river ridge, ultimately arriving at Kothe.

Day 7Kothe to Thaknak

As we ascend in altitude, today’s trek is relatively shorter, allowing for ample time to take in the sights along the way and at our final destination. The path gently follows the ridge of the Hinku River, leading us to the Lungsumba Gompa, where we’ll have plenty of time to explore.

The term “gompa” is Tibetan and refers to a monastery, a term you’ll encounter frequently in Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. This particular gompa boasts a history of 200 years. The landscape today is a feast for the eyes, offering views of Mera North and other surrounding peaks.

Following our visit to the gompa, it’s a brief walk to Thaknak. This village is seasonal, primarily existing for summer livestock grazing. While there are a few teahouses, we’ll be spending the night in one of them.

Day 8Thaknak to Khare

Today’s trek is once again relatively short, taking us over the lateral moraine of the Dig Glacier to reach the Dig Kharka pasture. While the trail is steep, the views are nothing short of spectacular. Along the way, we’ll pass by Hinku Nup and Shar Glacier, with the towering presence of mountains like Charpate Himal and the north face of Mera Peak gracing our sight.

Our accommodation for the night will be at a tented camp set up in Khare.

Day 9Khare Acclimatization and pre-climb training

Today was dedicated to essential preparations for the climb. Training sessions and thorough checks of all gear were conducted to ensure everything is in optimal condition for the upcoming ascent. This meticulous attention to detail is crucial for a safe and successful climb.

Day 10 Khare to Mera High Camp

We made significant progress today, advancing from the Mera Glacier to the challenging terrain of Mera La Pass. From there, we continued on a rocky path, ultimately reaching our destination at Mera High Camp. This campsite has been carefully established in readiness for the climb ahead. It’s an important milestone in our journey towards Mera Peak.

Day 11Mera High Camp to Summit and back to Khare

Today was a pivotal day, and the culmination of our efforts is now evident. We embarked on the ascent around 2 am, beginning with a nourishing breakfast. The subsequent 4 to 5-hour climb brought us to the summit, where an awe-inspiring panorama unfolded. The giants of the Himalayas, including Everest, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Chamlang, and Baruntse, stood majestically before us. Additionally, numerous other peaks over 6,000m adorned the horizon. The views were beyond breathtaking, and we captured this remarkable experience in photographs that will serve as enduring memories. Following a period of reflection and appreciation, we commenced our descent, ultimately arriving back at Khare, where a well-deserved rest awaits us. This achievement is a testament to our determination and teamwork.

Day 12Reserve Day for Contingency

Reserving one day for unforeseen circumstances like inclement weather or any unexpected health concerns within the group is a prudent measure. This additional day ensures that we have the flexibility to adapt to any challenges that may arise, ultimately enhancing the safety and success of our expedition.

Day 13Khare to Kothe

Descending back through the terrain we’ve already covered allows us to appreciate the landscape from a new perspective, especially with the sense of accomplishment from summiting Mera Peak. The familiarity of the route also adds a layer of comfort and confidence to our journey.

Day 14Kothe to Thuli Kharka

The transition from rocky terrain to the familiar embrace of Rhododendron, bamboo, and pine forests is a testament to the diverse landscapes this journey encompasses. The views of Mera Peak serve as a poignant reminder of the challenges overcome and the heights achieved.

Day 15Thuli Kharla to Lukla via Zatrwa La pass

Reaching the pass and crossing it marks a significant transition from the Makalu Barun National Park to the welcoming expanse of the Lukla Valley. This final night of the adventure is a poignant moment, a chance to reflect on the journey’s achievements. It’s also a time to bid farewell to the dedicated crew who have been instrumental in making this expedition possible.

Day 16Fly to Kathmandu

The early morning flight marks the return to Kathmandu, allowing for some leisure time for shopping and relaxation. It’s a fitting way to round off this memorable adventure.
