Trip Route


    Highest access: (6,476m)         First Ascent: May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing

Mera Peak stands 6476 meters high and is considered one of the major, most popular trekking peaks in Nepal. It lies in the Khumbu Himalayan Range. The trail winds amongst forests of pine and rhododendrons in this remote and uninhabited valley lead to the alpine Environment of Mera Base Camp. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however heavy snow and a maze of crevasses can make our journey a long way to the summit.
Besides the charm of climbing Mera Peak, the trek to base camp from Lukla is rewarding to experience rare un-spoilt regions of Nepal with densely forested hillsides. Mera Peak is classified as a trekking peak in Nepal which means it is also accessible for non-climbers, although trekking and basic experience is preferred. The necessary techniques and safety rules will be instructed to new trekkers during the route. Second reason is that from Mera Peak one can observe the major five peaks over 8000m from summit: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyo, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. The weather and the condition of snow must be good for the safety and success of summit.

From Base camp we have to climb up towards High camp. The way was covered with ice. On the way we can see nice and spectacular view of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Mt. Choyu (8,201m), Mt. Lhotse (8,501m), Mt.Kanchanjunga and many more. High Camp is situated in the base of big rock, where we can fell quite warm, which offers nice view of sunshine and sunset. (B/L/D)

We wake up around 1 AM in the morning for breakfast. It’s going to be very cold in the beginning but we get warmer 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), Kanchenjunga (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 Kongma Dingma. Overnight in Kongma Dingma. (B/L/D)

Leisure Day at Kongma Dingma(B/L/D)

We head up into the upper yak pastures of this incredible remote valley. All morning the great flanks of Chamlang dominate our left, and the spire of Baruntse comes into view beyond. The terrain is remarkably benign, especially considering we are actually heading directly into the very epicenter of the highest group of mountains in the world. The valley floor remains broad and straight, only gradually rising to the blind alley of peaks ahead. It is almost a shock to realize that the two majestic mountains we are heading straight towards are none other than Everest and Lhotse. Overnight in camp at Seto Pokhari. (B/L/D)

This is one of the remotest parts of the Himalayas, so we rarely see any trekkers en-route except if it is a very high tourist season. From Seto Pokhari we move ahead and pass through several lakes that occupy the upper Hunku Basin. After walking past Hunku Pokhari, our trail is next to the magnificent Hunku Glacier. We continue further with another lake close by to our trail. Overnight in Amphu Labcha Base Camp. (B/L/D)

We cross the Amphu Labcha La pass (5,845m) then walk across the Amphu Labcha Glacier. Lhotse Shar Glacier and Imja Glacier are nearby. Our trail also half circles the Imja Tsho lake before walking on the main Island Peak trail. Moving further ahead, we are also in the vicinity of the Ama Dablam Glacier before reaching Chhukung. Overnight in Chhukung. (B/L/D)

We begin our descent to Namche Bazaar after breakfast. We reach a sparse settlement of Bibre and cross a bridge over the Imja Khola. Our trail passes through beautiful villages, grasslands and cross several bridges before reaching Namche Bazaar. There is an amazing view point a little further from our trail at Dingboche.  Overnight in Namche Bazaar. (B/L/D)

We begin our trek to Namche Bazaar today on a rocky terrain.  It is mostly a downhill trek on a trail alongside the Dudh Koshi River. We cross several suspension bridges, pass by several monasteries and villages before reaching Lukla.
