Overview

 

Embark on an unforgettable journey and conquer new heights with Accessible Adventure's Mera Peak Climbing

 

Mera Peak is a sought-after trekking peak for novice climbers in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Generally, a trekking peak is referred to as a peak requiring less to no technical climbing experience. It serves as an excellent entry point for trekkers looking to venture into the world of mountaineering. At an altitude of 6,461m, the summit of Mera Peak is highly challenging for trekkers prone to altitude sickness. Glacier walking is also possible when you march the peak from the north. The duration of the trek is usually 14-16 days. Hence, a good amount of physical fitness and endurance is highly recommended for the trek.

A panoramic vista of some of the world's highest peaks can be observed from the summit of Mera Peak. From the summit, trekkers can see Mount Everest (8,848 meters), the highest mountain in the world, towering in the distance. To the east, the majestic peaks of Lhotse (8,516 meters), Cho Oyu (8,188 meters), and Makalu (8,485 meters) can be seen, while the peaks of Baruntse (7,129 meters) and Ama Dablam (6,856 meters/22,493 feet) can be seen to the south. Beautiful mountain views from the summit of Mera Peak provide a lifetime of memorable experiences.

The expedition begins with your arrival in Kathmandu and includes a flight to Lukla, followed by a trek to Chutanga. The trail features dense forests, colorful flowers, and lodges that offer eco-friendly accommodations. The trek continues to Thulikharka, where we can enjoy beautiful views of the valley and rest in lodges that offer comfortable accommodations. The journey then moves on to Khote, where we may encounter various animals. The fifth day of the trek takes us from Khote to Thanglang, featuring lush forests, wooden bridges, and stunning views of Charpate Himal. On day six, we will trek from Thanglang to Khare and receive training for climbing, which is followed by a rest day on day seven. On day eight, the journey continues with a trek to Mera Base Camp, featuring spectacular views of Mera Peak and the surrounding mountains. Then we move on to High Camp, where we rest and prepare for the summit climb. The summit climb begins early in the morning of day ten and features challenging terrain and breathtaking views. After reaching the summit, we descend to Khare, and the journey continues to Kothe, Thuli Kharka, and Lukla. The expedition ends with a flight back to Kathmandu and a farewell dinner.

Itinerary

Upon your arrival in Kathmandu, our airport representative will extend a warm welcome and ensure that you feel well taken care of. We'll handle all of your travel needs and assist you with the check-in process at our hotel in Thamel. Since there are no pre-planned activities for the day, you're free to explore the neighborhood at your own pace or simply relax in the comfort of your room.

Starting the day early in Kathmandu, we fuel up with a delicious breakfast and make necessary arrangements for our journey to the airport, followed by a flight to Lukla. This flight experience itself is an unparalleled adventure, and offers a breathtaking view of the Himalayan landscape. From there, you'll begin your trek to Chutanga, which is approximately a 3-hour walk. The trail leads through dense forests, featuring a variety of trees such as Salla, Katus, and Laligurans. As you make your way uphill, you'll pass by a few houses along the way. The lodges in this area are quite basic, but they offer all kinds of food to cater to your needs.

During the spring season, the trail is adorned with colorful flowers, providing a pleasant atmosphere. Chutanga is a small valley with an excellent view of Lukla airport, visible from the village. The lodges in Chutanga are solar-powered, providing eco-friendly accommodations for trekkers. You may also spot some Langur monkeys in the area, adding to the natural charm of the place. You'll stay overnight at Chutanga before continuing your trek the next day.

On the next day of the trip, after a hearty breakfast, we begin our hike to Thulikharkha. The trek is an uphill climb and takes approximately 4 hours. We'll then trek downhill for about 3 hours until we reach a teahouse where we'll stop for lunch.

After lunch, we'll begin our ascent to Chetra-la pass where the path is decorated with colorful Buddhist prayer flags. The pass offers panoramic views of Chetra La Himal, Kombe range, and the Lukla valley. We'll follow a rocky path to a tea shop, and from there trek downhill for 1.5 hours until we arrive at Thulikharkha.

Thulikharkha has 2-3 lodges where we can rest and enjoy dinner. These lodges are superior to the ones in Chutanga, and are solar-powered. They offer beautiful views of the valley, which you can take in while enjoying your meal. The lodges also offer comfortable accommodations for the night, ensuring a good night's rest before the next day's trek.

As we set out on Day 5, we trek from Thulikharkha to Khote, navigating a narrow road through forests, past beautiful laligurans and nigalo ghari blooms. We'll also find some basic food options after trekking for 3-4 hours through a forest road with tall pine trees. The descent to Khote takes about 1.5 hours. Once we reach Khote, we'll enjoy a delectable dinner, while taking advantage of the available electricity, hot water baths, and excellent wifi connectivity. We'll also get to encounter animals such as thar, musk deer (kasturi), and numerous species of birds along the way.

At Khote, we'll find a checkpost, indicating that we've arrived in a large valley that is powered by hydropower. The accommodations at Khote are superior to those at Thulikharkha, and the food is equally delicious. Before reaching Khote, we'll come across a riverside road, which serves as a junction for various routes.

On the sixth day, we'll trek from Khote to Thanglang after breakfast. This will be a 4-5 hour hike along the beautiful Sanu river, with spectacular views of Charpate Himal on the way. We'll encounter lush forests of pine trees and find tea shops along the trail to rest and refresh.

After a few hours of trekking, we'll reach Thanglang, where we'll enjoy a delicious dinner and spend the night at lodges similar to those at Khote, with excellent services. We'll cross small wooden bridges along the way and be welcomed by a gate at Thanglang, where we'll have the stunning views of Mera peak. It's worth noting that mild altitude sickness symptoms may occur due to the increasing altitude, so we should keep an eye on our health and stay hydrated.

On day seven, we'll trek from Thanglang to Khare, which will take about 3-4 hours of hiking. We'll follow a scenic riverside road and have breathtaking views of Mera Himal and Charpate Himal along the way. We'll stop for lunch and dinner at Khare and prepare for the upcoming climbing experience.

Today marks the beginning of our first rest or acclimatization day on the journey to Khare. It presents us with the opportunity to roam around the charming Khare village. We'll receive training for climbing and a guide will be with us to help us with the process. We'll learn about the basic climbing techniques and how to properly use the climbing rope during our training, which will take around 30 minutes to an hour.

As the sun begins to rise, we have a hearty breakfast at Khare and set off on our hike towards High Camp. The journey takes approximately 5-6 hours, and as we traverse uphill, we are surrounded by awe-inspiring views of the Himalayas. After 2 hours of hiking, we reach a section of the trail that is covered in ice, so we don our crampons and safety belts for added security.

As we continue, we come to a junction where one path leads to Amphu Lapcha Pass and the other to the high camp of Mera Peak. Our destination is the latter, where we will rest for the night in tents. We have packed lunches with us, consisting of chocolate bars, sandwiches, fruit juice, and boiled eggs, to keep us energized.

Upon arriving at High Camp, take in the stunning views around us. However, we must also be mindful of the potential for altitude sickness symptoms to arise, so proper hydration is key. As the night falls, we retire to our tents, ready for the next day's adventure.

On this day, be prepared for a big and grueling hike that will start at midnight, or no later than 2 am. It will be a slow hike that will take more than 12 hours to complete, so you'll need to be prepared for the long haul. The weather will be freezing cold, so make sure to bring warm clothing and a headlight as well. You will also need to carry a packed lunch with you, as you won't be back until late in the day. It's better to climb early to avoid the fast winds that come after 11 am. The steep terrain will depend on the season, so be prepared for anything.

At the break, you will be provided with a packaged breakfast to keep your energy levels up. You will also need to bring your own lunch. During the hike, you'll be rewarded with a panoramic view of the stunning surroundings. Once you reach the summit, you'll be able to enjoy the sight of some of the world's most famous peaks, including Kanchenjunga. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Lhotse Cho-Oyu. Take your time at the top and soak in the beauty of the surroundings for 15-20 minutes.

After the summit, you'll hike back down to base camp where you'll have some much-needed noodle soup. Then, it's back to Khare as you hike downhill. Finally, dinner will be provided at Khare, and you can rest and reflect on the amazing achievement of reaching the summit. It will have been a long and challenging day, but the views and sense of accomplishment will make it all worth it.

Sometimes, the weather conditions may not favor the climb as the sudden change in weather can have a great deal of effect on the climbing trail. The visibility constraints may affect a lot while climbing the mera peak. Also, the view at the top can get affected a lot due to the sudden change in the weather and climate of the region. Hence, it is necessary to consider a day as a reserve day in case of such emergencies. Additional food and supplies may also be required during this time.  

As we continue our trek, we retrace our steps along the same path from Khare to Kothe. Upon arrival at Kothe, we take a moment to revel in our accomplishments and indulge in the local cuisine , savoring the unique flavors and aromas that are distinctive to this region. Our overnight stay in Kothe allows us to rest and rejuvenate our bodies, replenishing our energy for the remainder of our journey.

After having breakfast, we set out on our trek to Thuli Kharka. Our journey begins with a climb followed by a descent, as we cross several tributaries of the Inkhu Khola. Upon reaching a forked trail near Taktho, we take the right path and continue our journey. As we make our way along the trail, we come across a Chorten and then begin our descent on a steep path. Soon after, we begin our ascent to Thuli Kharka, passing yet another Chorten along the way. Our night is spent in Thuli Kharka, as we rest and recharge for the adventures that await us in the coming days.

Upon crossing the Zatrwa-La pass at 4,600 meters, a breathtaking panoramic view of the picturesque Lukla Valley, surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks such as Cho Oyu, Kongde Peak, Number Himal, and Kusum Khangru, greets us warmly. Descending from the pass, we make our way down to Chutang before continuing onward to the vibrant Lukla village. In the evening, we savor a delicious dinner in the heart of the Nepalese Himalayas alongside our supportive and hardworking crew. A restful overnight stay awaits us in Lukla.

With the rising sun, a sense of happiness and fulfillment takes over as we begin our journey from Lukla to Kathmandu. However, we are mindful of the fact that flights from Lukla are often delayed or canceled due to unpredictable weather conditions. Therefore, we must set off early in the morning, as flights usually depart in the morning to avoid inclement weather in the afternoon.

Once we arrive in Kathmandu and settle into our accommodations, we have the rest of the day to ourselves. To make the most of our Nepal trip, we could choose to attend a spa session or embark on a short excursion to explore UNESCO historical sites. Alternatively, we could opt for a leisurely day of relaxation at our hotel.

At night, we retire to our hotel in Kathmandu, reflecting on the incredible journey we have undertaken and cherishing the memories we have made.

 

After a strenuous period of climbing and trekking, it's important to take a break and give your body some much-needed rest. This is where a rest day comes in, allowing you to recuperate before continuing your journey. If you find yourself in need of some pampering, why not indulge in a relaxing massage to help soothe your aching muscles? Alternatively, you could take a leisurely stroll around Thamel, which is known for its bustling markets and array of shops selling souvenirs, handicrafts, and other local treasures.

Another benefit of having a rest day is that it can also serve as a contingency day in case of any unforeseen circumstances, such as flight cancellations or delays due to inclement weather. This can be especially important if you're planning to catch a flight back to Kathmandu, as it can help you avoid any unnecessary stress or complications.

When the trip ends, our airport representative will drop you off at Kathmandu International airport for your flight departure from Nepal. Breakfast included.

Essential Gear and Equipment during Mera Peak Expedition 

Climbing Mera Peak requires appropriate gear and equipment to ensure the safety and comfort of the climber. Some essential gear and equipment for climbing Mera Peak include:

  • Mountaineering boots: Sturdy and comfortable mountaineering boots are essential for climbing Mera Peak. These boots should have a rigid sole and be able to accommodate crampons.
  • Crampons: Crampons are metal spikes that attach to the bottom of mountaineering boots, providing extra traction on snow and ice.
  • Ice Axe: An ice axe is a critical tool for climbing Mera Peak, especially for traversing steep slopes and crossing glaciers.
  • Harness: A harness is necessary for attaching oneself to ropes for protection on exposed sections of the climb.
  • Ropes: Climbing ropes are essential for protection, and fixed ropes may be used in some sections of the climb.
  • Carabiners and slings: Carabiners and slings are used to connect ropes and other equipment for protection.
  • Down jacket: A warm-down jacket is necessary for staying warm in cold weather conditions.
  • Thermal clothing: Warm thermal clothing, including base layers, mid-layers, and pants, is necessary for keeping the body warm in cold temperatures.
  • Gloves and mittens: Warm gloves and mittens are necessary for protecting the hands from the cold and wind.
  • Sunglasses and sunscreen: High altitude and sun exposure can cause severe sunburn and eye damage, so sunglasses and high-SPF sunscreen are crucial.
  • Backpack: A good quality backpack with a capacity of at least 50 liters is required for carrying gear and supplies.
  • It is essential to ensure that all equipment and gear are in good condition and appropriate for the climb. It is also recommended to rent or purchase equipment from a reputable outfitter in Nepal or bring your own gear from home.

 

More about Mera Peak Climb

What makes Mera Peak particularly unique is the opportunity to experience both the thrill of climbing a high-altitude peak and the adventure of trekking through remote and beautiful wilderness areas. It's a chance to test your limits and push yourself to new heights, both literally and figuratively. Unlike some of the more crowded trekking routes in the Himalayas, the Mera Peak trek is still relatively undiscovered, offering a sense of adventure and exploration.

Mera Peak Climbing Difficulty

Nepal has a grading system for trekking peaks that is used to categorize the difficulty level of climbing peaks. The grading system for trekking peaks in Nepal is based on the technical difficulty, altitude, and overall climbing conditions of the peak.

According to the Alpine grading system, Mera Peak is classified as Alpine Grade PD, which implies that it involves a certain degree of technical climbing and glaciers. However, Mera Peak Trek is considered one of the simplest climbing peaks in Nepal. The climb to the summit of Mera Peak involves some technical mountaineering skills, including the use of ropes, crampons, and ice axes. The climb to the summit is typically done in two or three days, with stops at high camps before the final ascent. The ascent to the summit is steep and strenuous with significant altitude gain. Our guides will help you prepare in every way possible to summit the peak safely.

The trek to Mera Peak typically takes about 15 days to complete, with an elevation gain of approximately 4,500 meters (14,764 feet) from Lukla to Mera Peak Base Camp. The trek includes various terrains, including forests, rivers, and valleys, with a gradual ascent to Mera Peak Base Camp.

 

Best Time for Mera Peak  Climbing/ Expedition

The key to a successful climb is choosing the right time to go. Luckily, we've got you covered with all the insider tips on when to go.

For starters, the spring and autumn seasons are the prime time for climbing Mera Peak.

From March to May and from September to November, you can expect stable and clear weather with a lower chance of rain and snow, creating the perfect conditions for climbing and trekking.

During the spring season, the temperatures are mild and comfortable, making it a popular time for outdoor adventures in Nepal.

March can be somewhat cold as the winter has just ended. April can be considered the best time to climb Mera Peak. The weather is very stable and the temperature is warm. The skies are clear with the best views of the 8,000-meter peaks like Everest and Kanchenjunga. The stunning views of the mountains during this time will take your breath away.

In the autumn season, the weather conditions are equally ideal for your Mera Peak expedition. This time is also considered great for trekking and climbing in the Mera Peak region. During September the rain washes all the pollution away from the dusty trail. So, October remains the best time in the Autumn to catch a glimpse of the clear view of the mountains and trek safely in that region. Keep in mind that this is also a popular time of year for trekkers and climbers, so you can expect some company on the trails.

The summer climbing experience at Mera Peak is not popular for many reasons. As the temperature around this time is high, the snowy trails get slippery. It is very hard and dangerous to traverse at these times. A small slip can lead to fatal consequences, the scorching in the sky doesn't help at all. In summer, you can get easily dehydrated and altitude sickness can be even more prevalent. Thus it is not advised to climb Mera Peak in this season. 

As for the winter season, temperatures drop significantly, making it a challenging time for climbing and trekking. Frequent snowfall and cold winds may also block the trails, making it difficult to reach base camp. Similarly, the monsoon season (June to August) brings frequent rain and high humidity, making it less popular for the Mera Peak expedition.

 

Accommodation During Mera Peak Climbing/ Expedition 

There are a variety of accommodation options available for climbers and trekkers. Along the trail, you'll find teahouses and lodges that offer basic amenities such as clean rooms, shared bathrooms, and simple meals. These accommodations are usually run by local families and provide a great opportunity to experience the local culture and hospitality.

As you near the base camp, the accommodation options become more basic, with simple tented camps providing shelter and meals for climbers. The base camp itself is typically set up with larger tents that offer more space and comfort for climbers to relax and prepare for their ascent.

We will stay six nights in lodges until we reach the high camp of Mera Peak. It includes Chutanga, Thulikharkha, Khote, Thanglang, and Khare(2 nights).  After that, we will camp for a day in High camp in tents. We will cover everything required for the camping procedure. After the ascension of the Mera Peak summit, we trace our steps back to the same places. 

We will stay for four nights in lodges until we take the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. It includes Khare, Kothe, Thuli Kharka, and Lukla.

Acclimatization

Mera Peak lies at a high altitude of above 5000m. At this height, we may be susceptible to altitude sickness and its symptoms. It is essential to acclimatize properly throughout the trek.

We have designated 2 days at Khare for the sole purpose of acclimatization. We will also cover basic climbing techniques and gear information at Khare as well. We also recommend that you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Additionally, our team will provide guidance on precautionary measures to take to avoid altitude sickness. However, if you do experience severe symptoms, the most effective remedy is to descend immediately. Each team member's overall condition will be assessed by the group leader. Some individuals may be more susceptible to altitude sickness than others, and decisions about the group's ascent will be made accordingly.
