Hello Adventure climber, if anyone would like to join the Mera Peak,we have 3 peoples already conformed.
Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu (1,350m. arrival at the Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu, we will be greeted by a representative from Halesi Treks who will take to the hotel. we get our equipment checked by our climbing leader, get introduced to fellow participants, and discuss our trip . In the evening, there will be a welcome dinner in a traditional Nepali restaurant where we will be able to enjoy authentic Nepali cuisine with a brief cultural program.
Day 02: Kathmandu- Lukla (2800m) – Chhutenga (3474m) early in the morning flight to Lukla. It takes around half an hour flight to reach Tenzing and Hillary airport Lukla. Lukla is a small city in the lap of High Mountain. It is commence point of our trek. After having breakfast we start our trek to Chutanga. The trial goes straight from lukla up to 1 hour then slightly ascent up to Chutanga. We have to walk through the pristine of Rhododendron (National flower of Nepal) and pine. It takes around 3 hrs. From Lukal to Chutanga.
Day 03: Trek to Thuli Kharka (4320m.) via Zwatra la (4600m. 5-6 hours We continue our trek the next day from Chutanga, the adventure begins with a steep climb to cross the Kalo Himal Ridge in the Nau Lekh range which separates the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley. A steep uphill climb brings us to a cairned notch in the ridge with a collection of Buddhist prayer flags at 4,450m. This small pass is called the Zatrwa Og, from here the path traverses across a boulder slope, round a corner and climbs once again to the Zatrwa-La at 4,600 m. In bad weather to find the path of our route can be quite misleading, so care should be taken but with fine weather, the views across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal. Overnight at Thuli Kharka.
Day 04: Trek to Kothe (3600m/ 5-6 hours Following breakfast we follow a delightful descending trail across three ridges, before dropping steeply down to the Hinku River and a final uphill to Kothe through lush rhododendron forests on the west side of the Hinku Valley . Rhododendron is the national flower of Nepal and on our journey we get to admire beautiful hills dotted with rhododendrons. Overnight in Kothe.
Day 05: Kothe to Thaknak (4,350m.3-4 hoursWe trek along the ridge of the Hinku Khola in the shadow of Mera Peak. We take lunch at Gondishung, the summer herders’ settlement in the west bank of the Hinku Drangka. Beyond Gondishung, we pass a 200 year-old Lungsumgba Gompa where we can find Mera Peak scripted in rock along with its route to reach Mera. A short walk takes us to Thaknak, which is a summer grazing area with primitive lodges and shops. Overnight in Thaknak.
Day 06: Thaknak to Khare (5,045m. 2-3 hours Leaving Thaknak, we follow the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka, which offers spectacular views of Charpate Himal. The trail climbs through moraines to the snout of the Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers, and then climbs more steeply to Khare. From here, we can view the Northern face of Mera Peak which will be an amazing experience. After lunch one can engage in hikes in the surroundings of Khare. Overnight at Khare
Day 06: Rest day in Khare/Acclimatization: Today the guides will carry out the last minute checking of the gears for the climb, and then arrange if any equipment becomes necessary to rent. Thereafter, we shall provide training on peak climbing techniques and the proper ways of using climbing gears such as the ice axe, climbing boots and crampons, harness, ascender, etc. Overnight at Khare.
Day 07: Khare to Mera Base Camp (5300m. 3-4 hours Today after breakfast, we walk through a boulder-strewn course on a steep trail to reach Mera Peak Base Camp. Upon reaching the base camp, we rest for a while. If anyone feels the previous training was not sufficient and wants to train more to build confidence to succeed the climb. Overnight at Mera Peak Base Camp.
Day 08: Mera Base Camp to High camp (5,780m. 4-5 hours We take the route through Mera La pass to reach the Mera High Camp today. Our path is along a rocky trail, which can be hazardous if it has recently snowed, as there are a number of crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn. We set up a high camp while enjoying excellent views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, south face of Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang and Baruntse. Overnight at Mera High Camp.
Day 09: Mera High Camp to Summit (6,461m.) and back to Khare (5045m.): 8-9 hours this is a really big day for us summiting Mera Peak today. We wake up around 2 Am in the morning for breakfast. It’s going to be very cold in the beginning but soon we warm up as we continue up the glacier and onto a peculiar ridge. The first rays of the sun hit the big peaks in an amazing red glow. The route is still non-technical as we slowly climb higher into the ever-thinning air. The slope steepens for a section behind the ridge and the summit comes back into view. At the foot of the final steep summit cone, we may attach to a fixed rope depending on the conditions. The summit is only a few meters away. From the summit, we take in amazing views of the mighty Himalayas including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho-Oyu (8,210m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m), Nuptse (7,855m), Chamlang (7,319m), Baruntse (7 ,129m) and others. Later, we retrace our steps back to the high camp where we rest for a while before descending to Khare. Overnight in Khare.
Day 10: Reserve Day for bad weather. there is no guarantee that we will have favorable weather on our planned day for the summit (day 12). Therefore, this day is set aside as a contingency in case we are unable to summit the Mera on day 12 due to bad weather conditions or any other unanticipated reason. However, if the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day, we can use this day to walk back to Lukla at a leisurely pace.
Day 11: Khare to Kothe (3600m. 4-5 hours We trek from Khare to Kothe along the same trail used previously. After reaching Kothe, we celebrate our success by trying out local delicacies and wines. Overnight in Kothe.
Day 12: Kothe to Thuli Kharka: 5-6 hours It is an uphill trek through lush rhododendron forests on the west side of the Hinku Valley to Thuli Kharka. Rhododendron is the national flower of Nepal and on our journey we get to admire beautiful hills dotted with rhododendrons. After reaching Thuli Kharka, we enjoy remarkable views of Mera North, Mera Central and South face
Day 13: Thuli Kharka to Lukla: 6-7 hours We begin today’s trek by ascending to Zatrwa La Pass. As soon as we cross the pass, we are welcomed by the sight of the beautiful Lukla Valley which is surrounded by Cho Oyu, Kongde Peak, Numbur Himal, Kusum Khangru and other Himalayan peaks. From Zatrwa La Pass we walk all the way down to Chutanga and then straight forward to the Lukla village. In the evening we enjoy dinner in the Himalayas of Nepal with our crew. Overnight in Lukla.
