The highest trekking peak in Nepal rigid in the most gripping region of the country Solukhumbu, would test your physical and mental strength to the best. The pain, exertion and exhaustion would halt once we reach the summit catch your breath with heads up when you realize the views of world's 8000 meter Mountains- Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and many other peaks is something you cannot afford to lose and none other than Mera peak in that elevation range would afford more grand view.

Brief Itinerary


After spending couple of days in the Capital of the Country making required permits and sightseeing we make our way to Lukla Airport which is also known as Tenzing- Hillary airport. The airport in itself is breath taking in many ways, first it caters only morning flights when weather is stable and clear when there is no windy condition, second it is amongst the airport with the shortest air strips in the world. The route will immediately head towards its final destination from the very beginning as we do not follow the usual Solukhumbu route to Namche Bazar instead we head towards Paiya.

Details Itinerary:

Day 01: Arrivel in Kathmandu (1300m.)
This is the end of your trekking in Nepal! We can help you create further itineraries for your trips in the country or you can hang out with us or you can add up sightseeing with us. If you are scheduled to fly back to your next stop, we will transfer you to the airport and wave you off in authentic Nepalese way. We hope you had the best time with us and we depart hoping to see each other in the future!

Day 02: Preparation day in Kathmandu
On this day we get busy with couple of things; one making required permits for your trekking and two taking you out for sightseeing. While our back office staff get ready preparing permits from the government offices, our guides help you get acquainted with the country by taking you to different heritages.

Day 03: Fly to Lukla (2800m.) and Trek to Chhutenga (3450m.)
We take an early morning and short flight to Lukla, which is heavily dependent on the weather. The flight you board on is one of the most beautiful flights you will have taken! After we reach Lukla and gather our luggage and head to Chutanga. The trail we cover today is easy to trek on and is good to start with. Crossing the pastureland we enter a sparse forest of Rhododendron which is soon overshadowed by Pine. The view of the mountain is fantastic and within three hours we reach Chutanga.

Day 04: Trek to Khark Tang (3750m.)
We start ascending on the Kalo himal ridge, along with the prayer flags, all the way to the pass of Zatwr La 4600m. This pass separates Khumbu from Hinku vally. After reaching the pass we further descend from the east flank of Hinku valley to the camp site of khark Tang.

Day 05: Trek to Chhetra Thu (4350m.)
From Khark Tang we embark on the trail that shoots upward and stroll on it for the next hour and half or two. The fist noticeable place we reach after the hike is Chattrala. From Chattrala we can see one of the most captivating views of mountains in the region and noticeably of Cho Oyu 8201m. For the next half an hour we walk on comparatively easy and straight trail and further descend for another hour to reach Chhetra Thu. It is possible to cover more ground on this day but due to altitude we would stay overnight in Chhetra Thu.

Day 06: Trek to Khothey (3600m.)
The first hour of today’s walk is done on rocky trail and it is important to be careful to avoid any kind of injury. On this day we will get the first proper glimpse of Mera peak. Further down the way the trail gets inside the forest of Rhododendron and Juniper and gets steep. We follow the steep trail for around 2-3 hours until we reach Kothey.

Day 07: Trek to Tagnak (4350m.)
Initially the trail climbs through the banks of Inkhu Khola. We get a beautiful view of Mt. Charpate; a holy mountain and Mera La. Look out for an old monastery on a huge boulder. We hike all the way to Tagnak and call it a night.

Day 08: Rest day in Tagnak (4350m.)
We rest in Tagnak but remain proactive throughout the day. After breakfast we head to Mt. Charpate and attempt summiting it. Climbing to the higher ground offers good acclimatization and the view is outstanding. The climb takes around 3 hours and after summiting we head down to Tagnak and have our lunch and prepare for following days.

Day 09: Trek to Khare (4900m.)
The trail starts upwards immediately and leads to Dig Kharka. From Dig Kharka we will get beautiful view of the Charpate mountain. From DigKharka the trail gets a little easier but gradually ascents all the way until we reach Khare. Khare is a small Sherpa village settled by the herders and is not a permanent village.

Day 10: Trek to Mera peak Base Camp (5350m.)
We will walk for 3-4 hours on this day, which is very less compared to other days. The hours may be short but the trekking is not easy. First of all we walk all the way up to Mera glacial and further walk for over half an hour across the glacier. Finally we walk down around 100-200 meters to Mera base camp. We camp overnight at Mera base camp.

Day 11: High Camp (5750m.)
We will walk on icy trails on this day and need crampons, axe and ropes at times to reach high camp. This is another day of 3-4 hours of walk but a strenuous one. The high camp is located right below a gigantic boulder and is exposed to the sunlight throughout the day which is why it is warm. The high camp offers view of 4 highest mountains namely Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Kanchenjunga, along with many other smaller mountains.

Day 12: Summit (6654m.) and back to Khare
This is the most difficult and important day of the Mera peak climbing trip. We wake up past midnight at 1:00 am and get ready for one long day. We will slowly and gradually ascend towards the summit of the Mera peak and if the weather favors our trip we should be able to reach the top in 4-6 hours. The climb is no doubt a tough one and especially with the crampons, backpack, axes and the ropes but the view from the top that gives you goose bumps will give you a mixed feeling of accomplishing something that all can’t. We will see 4-5 highest mountains in the world as well as some other mountains like Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Labuche and some more peaks. We will spend much needed 25 minutes of time on the top before we head down. We begin descending and descend all the way down to Khare and call it a night.

Day 13: Trek to Khothey
We take the same way down to Khotey that we took on our way while ascending. We spend a night in Kothey.

Day 14: Trek to Chhetra La
We trek to Chhetra La, which is beyond Chettra Thu. We follow the same route on our way back that we walked on our way up. We rest in Chettra La instead of Chettra Thu. 

Day 15: Trek to Lukla
We head further to Lukla with plenty of oxygen to fill our lungs and only halt our trek in Lukla. We can enjoy the end of the trek and share experience with the ones returning as well as beginning their trek.

Day 16: Fly to Kathmandu
We board an early morning 200km flight back to Kathmandu, with the best views of the mountains on the right. One last time we wave off the mountains through the widows of the aircraft. We arrive at Kathmandu Airport in no time and get transferred to the hotel. We have almost an entire day, so we may spend the day by doing errands or exploring the local culture or food

Day 17: Free day in Kathmandu

This is free day in Kathmandu and you can spend it by rejoicing culinary from all around the world in the busy Thamel area. If there are any errands, this is a perfect day for you to get something for your loved ones. If you are still willing to add some sightseeing and interested in relics, we can arrange you with a perfect escape to medieval age.

Day 18: Final Departure
This is the end of your trekking in Nepal! We can help you create further itineraries for your trips in the country or you can hang out with us or you can add up sightseeing with us. If you are scheduled to fly back to your next stop, we will transfer you to the airport and wave you off in authentic Nepalese way.
