Mera Peak lies within the Everest Region and situated in solukhumbu District of Nepal which is 6654 meters high. It is the highest classified trekking peak of Nepal. It is also technically the most straightforward and has the biggest all-round view from the summit. It offer finest view of five more then 8000 Meter peaks like Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and Kanchenjunga. From High Camp you get impressive and panoramic views of the Himalayan range. The ascent itself involves a moderately steep walk up the Mera Glacier and a final steep snow slope to a flat and spacious summit. Though the standard is equivalent to Alpine grade ‘F’, but you will be at a very high altitude. The trek to and from the peak is a classic in its own right, allowing a lot of time for acclimatization and exploration of the maze of valleys and lesser peaks on.
Mera peak Climbing is an excellent physically demanding option, the mountain is deemed suitable for anyone who is fit and keen hill walker. The trek to Mera Peak takes you to wild country, devoid of human settlement. Till recently there were no teahouses in the higher region and trekkers were left with no option but to rely on a fully organized trek. However, of late enterprising locals from nearby villages have set up teahouses at all points up to Base Camp giving a much easier and cheaper option for trekkers. By introducing this budget-friendly trek, Satellite Treks and Expedition seeks to help out these Tea House owners by bringing in business. The trek will run on Tea House basis up to Khare (base camp) where you will be met and welcomed by our team of Sherpas. This team of Sherpa’s will be stationed at the Base Camp throughout the season with food, equipment, and other gears. They will guide you to the summit of Mera Peak and bring you back to Khare with necessary support. At Khare, your trekking guide will be waiting for you and will guide you back to Lukla to Kathmandu.

Early morning we fly from Kathmandu to Lukla via mountain flight of about 35 minutes scenic flight. With clear weather, we get fantastic views of the mountains, including Everest as we enter deep gorge of the Dudh Koshi valley. Today we will spend the rest of the time enjoying the Lukla valley and enjoying the panorama and overnight at lodge.
After breakfast, we trek through the pasture to the edge of a diminishing forest of rhododendron and pine which clothes the steep hillsides. We will pass through a number of tiny hamlets before entering the thick forest on the hillside below the Kalo Himal Ridge. The trail 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. There are many streams with numerous places for the first camp and overnight at local lodge.
The trail crosses the Kalo Himal ridge, which separates the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley. Further ahead, we traverse a comfortable path displaying a cairned notch on the ridge with several prayer flags at an elevation of 4450m. En route we may encounter yak herders. The views across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are very impressive and so is the view across the rolling foothills east of the Hinku Valley. Half an hour below the pass is a huge boulder and 5 hours of trekking finally brings us to Tuli Kharka and stay overnight at Local Tea House.
After breakfast we move through the red Rhododendron forest on the beaten Himalayan trail. The trees will change to pine with the increasing elevation. There are still opportunities to spot some wildlife in the forested areas but we are going to emerge in to areas of mountain meadows and finally bring us to Kothe total takes about 5-6 hours and stay overnight at Lodge.
Today will be about 4 to 5 working. We follow the west bank of the riverbed up the valley to Tangnag (4,350m). The path is the gradual ascent and we will have closed up views of Kusum Kanguru peak and many more Himalayas. On the way, we have the nice view of Mt. charpate and Mera La and a Buddhist Gomba in the lap of the big rock. Thagnag is a summer grazing area with the simplest of lodges and shops starting to develop and we overnight at local Lodge at Thagnag.
We need this rest day to allow our bodies to recover and settle at the elevation before we can sleep at 5000m. This is also a nice area to relax and soak up the beautiful views of peaks and glaciers surrounding the head of the Hinku Valley, we can see pyramid of Peak 43 and west face of Mera Peak; we will visit Sabal Tsho Lake and take an acclimatization hike to the cairn (5,271m) on the flank of Kusum Kanguru (6,367m) and stay overnight at Lodge.
As we walk away from Thangnang, the trail ascends to a wide grassy basin, popularly called Dig Kharka. We continue walking for hours. After a while, we arrive at Khare, which offers splendid vistas of the huge north face of Mera, Hinku Shar Glacier, and Mera La and overnight at Camp.
This is a required acclimatization day to get accustomed to a 5000m threshold and to be able to cope with the summit elevation. There are many hike possibilities, however, if not feeling strong we will take a rest to gain the strength and today’s also overnight at the same place.
After breakfast, we trek from Khare to Mera La pass (5,300m), our Base Camp. We will conduct snow training for our expedition members unfamiliar with snow climbing techniques. We all have to become familiar with using crampons, rope and ice ax and overnight at Camp.
We trek from Mera La (Pass) to Mera Peak High Camp (5,780m.), where we set up our final climbing camp. The track may be hazardous if there was snowfall covering crevasses; this is why we conducted our training at Mera La pass. The views are stunning from here on Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and south face of Lotshe, Nuptse, Chamlang and Baruntse and there is your overnight place for Tonight.
This is probably the most important and toughest day in any mountaineering trip in this trip. It is usually necessary to rope up for much of the summit approach due to crevasse hazards along the route. As it starts to get light, we enjoy incredible views across to Baruntse (7129m), Chamlang (7319m) and Nau Lekh (6360m) with Makalu (8481m) looming behind. After achieving the summit, you retrace your steps down to high camp. After taking pictures and enjoying the view, we descend by the same route back to our campsite at Khare for the night's rest. You will really find this day really long but inspirational one for your life!
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 and overnight at Teahouse.
We climb up through the lush forest on the west side of the Hinku Valley to Thuli Kharka and through the red Rhododendron forest on the beaten Himalayan trail which takes about 5-6 hours and stays overnight at Lodge.
We cross the exciting Zatrwa La pass (4,600m) before descending steeply into the Dudh Kosi valley and to Lukla. We trek through forests of fir, rhododendron, oak, juniper, and local vegetation. After crossing the pass we see the beautiful view of Lukla valley Cho yu, Kongde peak, Number Himal, Kusum Khangru and so many others.
