Mera Peak (6,461m/21,190ft) which is the highest trekking peak (Elder brother of 6000nier) in Nepal. We ascend Mera Peak preferably during the spring and autumn seasons as it’s the best time to climb the mountain for its astonishing views of the Himalayan Vista. Five 8,000m peaks are visible from the summit including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga.

One of the popular and highest trekking peak of Nepal; Mera Peak is 6654 meters / 21831 feet high above sea level, rises to the south of Mt. Everest, this peak was an almost overlooked mountain to the east of the main Khumbu trekking trails. It is situated in the Everest region in a remote hinku valley, Mera peak is a non technical mountain. It is suitable for anyone of average or above average fitness wishing to fulfil the dream of a high Himalayan summit or those with a yearning for adventure. When you stand upon the summit, spread before you will be an unbelievable panorama of peaks such as Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Ama Dablam and Cho Oyu to the west as well as hundreds of other beautiful mountains.

Mera Peak Climbing is Strenuous challenging for the beginners who is attempting for the first time, Mera Peak Climbing offers a thrilling opportunity to try some Himalayan rock and ice. The climb is not too technical except you will need good adaptation to altitude and some basic experience with climbing equipment, including ice axe and crampons. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward; however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit.

As usual, to gain successful ascent, we head up slowly and plenty of time during the trek up to base camp allow us to be properly acclimatized. After the summit, the trail will follow crossing Mingbo La or Tashi Lapcha down to Everest classic route at Chhukung and we conclude this memorable journey at Lukla.

About 700 foreign visitors climb the 6654m. Mera peak each year, an achievement which requires mountaineering skills and a special permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

We follow the original Everest trekking or expedition route at the trail head from Jiri or we use the short way from Lukla, cross spectacular gorges and visit the Peak before entering Sherpa regions of Solu Khumbu, the wilderness of Hinku Valley. This is a fascinating trek in itself. Ample time for acclimation is allowed en route to our base camp on the Mera La (Pass). The return to Kathmandu is easy for your plane will get back to the wonderful Sherpa areas and the gigantic Himalayas.

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary

Day 01 – Arrive Kathmandu
Arrive to Kathmandu, an exciting and memorable experience with the panoramic view of snow-capped Himalayan range greets your sight.
Independent Himalayan Adventure’s Airport Representative will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel.

Day 02 – Kathmandu. Permit Obtain.
We will finalize paperwork-permit for your trip. Final checking of your climbing equipments. Sightseeing tours of Kathmandu Valley.

Day 03 – Flight to Lukla and Trek to Paiyan (2796m).
Flight to Lukla (Tenzing-Edmund Hillary Airport) where the airstrip at Lukla was built by Sir Edmund Hillary and his friend; Our Expedition route to Mera to the south is a welcome escape from the crowded trail to traditional Everest Base Camp. After having lunch at Surkhe you will pass through many traditional villages to reach to the vicinity of Paiyan (2796 meters) for our first night camp.

Day 04 – Trek to Pangkogma (2846 m) walk approx. 06 hrs
After a short walk from Painyan our trail breaks away, leaving the main route to Namche Bazzar and head east into the mountains, following the old trading route linking the Everest region to the Arun valley.

Day 05 – Trek to Narjing Dingma (2690m) walk approx. 06 hrs
Early in the morning we head up towards the Pangkongma La pass (3140 meters) behind the village, marked by some very ancient looking Chortens. Once we entered the Hinku valley, immediately there is a feel of unspoilt remoteness.

Day 06 – Trek to Chalen Kharka (3440m) walk approx 06 hrs
The forests continue as we ascend, now mainly rhododendron. From the Surkie La (3085 meters) we head north along the ridge, and the whole of eastern Nepal opens out in front of us, over the wildly remote Honku valley.

Day 07 – Trek to Khola Kharka (4120m) walk approx 06 hrs
Up the ridge is cragged with lichen rocks and heathers, and we wind our way up over several rises. The ridge narrows as dramatic gullies drop away steeply on either side. Over a final crest (4330 meters) we reach the unexpected suspended ledge of the lakes of Panch Pokhari – five lakes, the sacred number.

Day 08 – Trek to Kote (3490m) walk approx. 06 hrs
It would be an excellent trekking day, walk through the dwarf juniper; rhododendron and lovely mixed firs will add the beauty in your trip. Enjoy the great view of Mera and Hinku valley before we descend steeply to the phenomenal cascading junction of two mountain torrents, crashing down through tall pine forests all around our lunch site.

Day 09 – Trek to Tangnang (4140m) walk approx 5 hrs
The forest gives way to open valley again by mid-morning, revealing the peaks which line either side. A small Buddhist Gompa in the rock wall above the path contains some unexpectedly fine Buddha statues within. The valley swings eastward into a new array of peaks and the route up toward the Mera glacier comes into view.

Day 10 – Acclimatization Day
This acclimatization day is very important and useful for boosting yours adaptation to the altitude by gaining as much height as we can during the day but returning to Tangnang for the night.

Day 11 – Trek to Khare
Todays walk up alongside the Dig glacier is easy and relaxed. This is an excellent valley opening out views to the north of the Hinku Nup glacier and the line of peaks beyond. Behind us is the dramatic spire of the less than romantically named -Peak 35, which has yet to be climbed.

Day 12 – Acclimatisation day /Ridge ascent from Hinku Nup
Today we gain more valuable acclimatisation and pick up some stunning views as well. Following the lateral moraine of the Hinku Nup glacier into an arena of peaks and glacial lakes, we turn to ascend a grassy ridge that rises back to the south.

Day 13 – Climbing Clinic
Ascending the steep edge of the glacier is an ideal to practice crampon use and ice axe technique, and to get the feel of jumaring on a fixed rope. On top we find a suitable area with a safe run-out to learn self-arrest, the single most important skill of alpine mountaineering, even if little needed on the safe slopes of Mera.

Day 14 – Get up to High Camp. approx. 6 hrs
We return to the glacier, and this time follow it round in a wide arc, keeping close under the nrthern flank where there are no crevasses. The last section is almost level and Mera La (5410 meters) itself is a rounded snow col that bridges south to the main sweep of the Mera glacier coming down from the peak itself.

Day 15 – Summit the Mera Peak (6654 meters / 21831 feet) and back to Khare. approx. 08 hrs
Summit the Mera Peak (6654 meters / 21831 feet) and back to Khare.
This is the most important and toughest day in any mountaineering trip as you will be awakened before the dawn with the high esteem to summit the peak. After the steaming hot tea and a quick breaky we continue all roped up through the main glacier then crossing back to the south side we approach the snow humpback ridge. The first shafts of the sun hit the big peaks behind us and are soon on our own slopes, an amazing horizontal red glow. The route is still non-technical; 30º slopes, one foot in front of the other, count the steps and take a breather.

Day 16 – Spare Day for Summit
The weather condition in the Himalayas is unpredictable so this spare day enables us to be flexible with the program depending upon the weather condition or other problems.

Day 17 – Trek to Kote. walk approx 06 hrs
We retrace our trail back to Kote and camp by the river after this life long journey to Mera Peak and enjoy the celebration party.

Day 18 – Trek to Cetera (4190m) , approx 06 hrs
We follow another new route back to Lukla that stays high on the open hillsides west of the Hinku River, rather than winding through the previous one. This makes for a quicker return with some fantastic views back of Mera itself from a completely different angle.

Day 19 – Trek to Lukla. approx 07 hrs
The trail goes over a series of rises and high plateau till the windy craggy Zatrawa La (4,580m), the gateway to the Dudh Kosi valley and the trail to Lukla, from where we look back on the Hinku wilderness for the last time and the south face of the peak we have just climbed.

Day 20 – Fly back to Kathmandu
This morning, we have a flight from Lukla to Kathmandu; it is a thrilling exciting flight over forests, fields and villages with the Himalayas at the background.
On arrival, we transfer to the hotel. The remainder of the day is at leisure.
