Mera Peak (6476m) is the highest of Nepal’s ‘trekking peaks’, but since it is suitable for anyone who has little or no experience using ice axe and crampons, it is a good introduction to Himalaya Expeditions. During the course of this expedition we are constantly rewarded with views of some of the most famous peaks in Nepal including Sagarmatha – Mt Everest and Lhoste. The summit provides one of the finest views in Nepal. Trekking through the remote Hinku Valley on the way to Mera is a wonderful wilderness experience, passing through beautiful forest, past banks of strawberries, and under huge mangolias and an enormous variety of rhododendrons.
The expedition lasts 23 days. Day 1 is your arrival in Kathmandu. After expedition preparations we fly to Lukla on day 4. We trek to Mera Peak via Piuyan, Pangom, Niumso, the challenging Chetra Tenga forest, Khote, Tagnag (where we acclimitize on on Kusum Kanguru Ri), Khare, Dig Kharka, finally camping on Mera La on day 15. We climb the mountain on days 16-18 using a high camp. We then retrace our steps to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu on day 22. The itinerary is subject to change.
Is this trip suitable for you?
The route is well within the reach of regular mountain walkers with a good level of fitness. Our programme of acclimatisation is designed to maximise your chance of reaching the summit.
