Trip Overview

Embark Mera Peak (6476m/21,247ft), highest permitted trekking peak located south of Everest in Makalu Barun National Park dominating the wild and profoundly wooded Hinku and Hongu valleys.

Although Mera Peak is not the part of Everest Himalayan ranges, we can catch truly memorable view of five of the six highest mountains on Earth from top of Mera Peak. Mt. Cho Oyu (8201m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), Mt. Everest (8848m) and Mt. Makalu (8463m) are all very close by, and on clear day you can also see Mt. Kangchenjunga (8586m) on the Indian border far away to the east.

Only the sixth eight thousander you would not see from Mera is K2 (8611m). First climbed by Col Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing, Mera Peak is perfect for you if you are looking forward to step to mountaineering world. Our regularly updated and proven Mera Peak climbing itinerary designed keeping in mind proper acclimatization crossing the Zatwra La, contributes to a remarkable success on Mera Peak. We admit to the beautiful Everest region from Kathmandu via an exciting flight to Lukla. Then instead of heading north towards Namche Bazaar and further main Everest trail we trek east towards the ridge of peaks that divides the Dudh Koshi from the Hinku Valley. Cross the Zatra La (15,000’ / 4600m) then descend steeply to the Hinku.

We would walk first few days through spectacular Hinku valley, wild forests, alpine environment, meadows. The paths are relatively good for most of the route up to base camp at Khare, and offer relatively moderate walking conditions with some steep ascents and descents. Go north and east for 3-4 more days to reach the Mera La (17,767’ / 5415m). The summit is now to the south and can be reached in one or two days of glacier travel.

Summit Journey

The climb of Mera Peak does not involve any technical climbing and for the most part we will be walking on snow slopes of less than 30 degrees. Depending on snow conditions, the majority of the ascent involves a walk up a glacier requiring basic ice axe and crampon skills. So, previous experience is not a prerequisite for Mera Peak Climbing as instruction in the simple techniques required will be given by your climbing guides.

There is a plenty of opportunity to gain proficiency in these at the bottom of the Mera Glacier. The main difficulties of the climb of Mera Peak are those associated with trekking at high altitude and this climbing holiday will be suitable to fit and prepared trekkers as well as mountaineers wishing to reach new heights.  Although the mountain has a trekking summit of 6431m which needs nothing more than this, Mera Central, the summit at 6461m, usually involves a 30-meter ascent of a 60° snow dome using fixed rope and jumar, depending on snow conditions. Proper acclimatization is key to having a good chance of reaching the summit.

Our Mera Peak itinerary is designed keeping plenty of time for gradual acclimatization of participants. At the places where we spent more than one night the rest days are used to climb higher places and return to lower, following the “climb high, sleep low” rule.  Our itinerary is designed to spend night at high camp which is good for awesome views and for acclimatization, thus higher success rate in reaching the summit.

Coming from someone that travels the world and deals with many tour operators, I must say, Icicles Adventures Trek & Tours has raised the bar in terms of service and execution.Planning my trek/climb was easy and swift, they made sure everything I need is covered and catered to. Email communication was always professional, clear and detailed, and prompt.They assigned the ideal Sherpa guide for my adventure- speaks fluent English, excellent climbing skills, flushed with knowledge about the mountains and is always in a positive mood! If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have reached the top of Mera Peak and become the 1st to ascent the mountain in 2017!Their extraordinary service extends beyond that. I picked up an injury during my descent and had trouble trekking and in no time, they chased my insurance company, arranged for a rescue helicopter, checked me in a hospital, kept me company till I was discharged and checked me in to my hotel. I NEVER felt alone!All in all, it was a memorable experience. I see Indira, Hari and Kipa not as my travel consultants but rather as family.

Mera Peak climbing -18 days Day to Day Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu (1,338 m/4,390 ft)

We welcome you to one of the most historically preserved capital city of the world, Kathmandu which also is widely known as the “City of Temple” for its eccentric designs of temple architecture. As you finish your final last formalities through the airport customs, you shall meet with our representative who will be waiting anxiously for you at the arrival terminal of the airport. You will be greeted and welcomed in a true Nepalese manner before getting transferred to your hotels for your stay. After reaching your hotel and getting inside your respective rooms, you can finally take a well needed rest and sooth your exhausted body by having a shower. Afterward, you can go outside for a short look at the areas near your hotel for the remaining day. Stay overnight at Kathmandu.

Accommodation: Hotel

Day 02: Kathmandu (1,338 m/4,390 ft): Sightseeing and Trek Preparation

Have you wandered about what lies hidden inside this heart pounding exhilarating city of Nepal where people seem to be in hurry all the time no matter where you go? Then my friend this day is going to show you the real hidden beauty of Kathmandu which charms its every visitor for the rest of their life. So, as you finish your breakfast, your sightseeing tour begins immediately which takes you to the bewildering UNESCO World Heritage sites located at various parts of Kathmandu. Starting with a visit to the high hill structure of Swayambhunath Temple, you encounter large groups of monkeys here and there while you make your way to the top of the temple. Moving on, we head towards Boudhanath Stupa which is the largest stupa in Nepal. Next is the esteemed holy Hindu site of Pashupatinath Temple. Lastly, to end our day we take a visit to the fortress of Kathmandu Durbar Square where the cities ancient historic past still lurks safely within the magnificent building walls of the palace. In the evening, we also have a scheduled pre-trip meeting which allows you to meet your guide and discuss about your upcoming trek plans. Stay overnight at Kathmandu.

Accommodation: Hotel – Included Meal: B

Day 03: Fly to Lukla (2,800 m/9,184 ft) and trek to Chutanga (3475m/11398 ft) 3 hrs

Leaving behind the 2,000-year-old stunningly diverse capital city of Kathmandu, we now take a scenic flight to the small hill airstrip of Lukla which is situated 138 kilometers away from Kathmandu on a northeast direction. During your 40-minute flight period, you can witness hypnotic Himalayan scenery even before reaching Lukla airport, hence it is suggested to have your cameras ready if you don’t want to miss the dramatic shot of the snowcapped mountains. Sometimes also referred to as the Tenzing-Hillary-Airport, this beautiful airport town is located at a high elevation of 2,800 m above sea level and additionally acts as an entrance gateway to the Everest region of Nepal. Now after collecting all our luggage and with our trekking crew, we shall head upward to commence our first walk into the spectacular Khumbu valley where natural and cultural diversity prevails throughout every trekking trail of this region. And later after walking for about 4 hours you shall arrive at your Chutanga which is going to be final destination for today as we have reached a very high altitude of 3,475 m which requires trekkers to have proper rest and acclimatization before moving higher. With a rest stop of Chutanga, it is estimated that the physical bodies of trekkers get adequate time to adjust to the environment of these kind of high places. Stay overnight at Chutanga.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 3-4 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 04: Acclimatization at Chutanga- take acclimatization hike

Reaching a high place swiftly can sound fun and adventurous but it can also be the biggest factor in increasing the risk of getting acclimatization. Without gaining proper acclimatization, trekkers cannot proceed further ahead with their trek which is bound to get even higher from this moment. As the elevation of a place increases drastically, the physical condition of a person needs to be able to cope with the surrounding environment which has a very thin air made up of very less Oxygen molecules in the air. Due to which the required amount of Oxygen for the body to function properly is not received by the body. This can cause severe health hazards that if not treated can lead to one’s death. Hence, without any more discussion, we are to spend a full one day in Chutanga in order to let our bodies get acclimatized. But that doesn’t mean you have to spend your day by sitting/sleeping inside your lodge the whole day. You can go out and have some short descent hikes nearby your lodge areas to improve and enhance your body’s ability to adjust accordingly to the surroundings. Stay overnight at Chutanga.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 6-7 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 05: Chutang to Thuli Kharka (4300m/14104ft) via Zatra La (4600m)

Want to experience a thrilling adventure then today is the day when you get exactly that. As per our itinerary, we shall now head even higher towards Thuli Kharka by crossing a formidable high Himalayan pass called the Zatra La Pass. This particular pass is situated at an elevation of 4,600 meters above sea level due to which it can be a very taxing experience for trekkers who hate a high uphill climb. You can prepare your body for the upcoming snow and freezing ice which lies ahead at the soaring windy top of Zatra La Pass. In fact due to its high elevation and unstable weather patterns, Zatra La Pass ma require the use of crampons and other gears to help our ascent to the top of Zatra La Pass. Later, we shall make a short time consuming steep ascent to reach the pasture fields of Thuli Kharka. Upon reaching there, trekkers can rest inside on of the several local lodges and remain there for the upcoming night. Stay overnight at Thuli Kharka.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 6-7 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 06: Thuli Kharka to Kothe (4182m/13716 ft)

It is another beautiful day as the sun revives the sparkling beauty all around you and creates a dazzling mountain scenery for you to wake up to which also includes the taxing pass that we previously had traversed upon to reach Thuli Kharka. Afterward, you shall have you breakfast and fuel up your body for the journey towards Kothe village. In the beginning of our journey, we follow a trekking trail through three hill ridges before arriving high above the shimmering Hinku river which can be a very beautiful scene to have a look at. Continuing ahead we now make a long steep hike uphill towards a more densely covered forest trail filled with stunning rhododendron forest. Trekkers can capture some beautiful pictures of the area as the opulently verdant forest can create a dazzling scenery for nature lovers. Not only that but today you can also get the first view of Mera Peak itself if you just can find the right spot. The final phase of this day trek takes us to some more steep hikes on a heavily forested trail with undulating paths and waterfalls while traveling alongside a river before arriving at the sandy boulder choked site locally known as Kothe village. Here trekkers can see a few number of stone built lodges to accommodate trekkers who pass through it each day. Stay overnight at Kothe.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 6-7 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 07: Kothe to Thangnag (4356m/14288ft)

This day in particular will take trekkers on a straight direction up the hill towards Thangnag village. It can be a bit unpleasing for trekkers who hate hiking uphill for the rest of the day. So after finishing your breakfast and filing up your tummies with nutrient rich supplements, we shall now continue our journey. Unlike yesterday, our trek today takes us on steep ascent trails where there is a dramatic change in the environment with less forested trails to help you escape the harsh sunlight. Hence, it will be pretty good to put on some suntan lotion and use hat to ease your trekking experience. As the trail can be get very dusty at sometimes due to the harsh wind conditions, trekkers might need to use some kind of bandana to cover their faces and use sunglasses for some period of time during this day. With some final minute push and after trekking for nearly 6 hours, we shall arrive at Thangnag village which is situated at 4,356 m and offers great closeup view of Mera La, Kusum Knagguru and Peak 43. Stay overnight at Thangnag village.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 5-6 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 08: Thagnag to Khare (5,000m/16,400ft)

Today we are going to reach an estimated high altitude of 5,000 meter above sea level by the end of the day. Thus, we shall wake up early, have our breakfast and then tighten our shoe laces once again to begin another hike up towards another Himalayan village. Traversing through the ridges made up of debris which are deposited along the sides of Dig Glacier and moving into the meadows of Dig Kharka, we receive an unimaginable mountain view of Charpate Himal (Four sided mountain in English). With some more pleasing views of the north face of the potent Mera Peak, we march forward to Khare village. After reaching Khara, one can easily get the feeling of exhaustion and tiredness increasing largely due to the high elevation of this place which lacks high density of Oxygen molecules. Stay overnight at Khare.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 3-4 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 09: Acclimatization at Khare- Ice climbing practice

Every trek which goes higher above 3,000 meters above sea level at a very rough challenging terrain and landscape surely needs to be scheduled prior to with a full day just for acclimatization purposes. Without a full day stop, trekkers might succumb to the High Altitude Sickness which affects mostly those with weak physical conditions or those who have rushed their way to the top. Hence, we have planned this day as a day for you to let your body prepare for better and adjust accordingly to the altitude of these places. We suggest trekkers to take a walk around the vicinity of their lodge and remain active for entire acclimatization period without moving higher that Khare village. Not only that, but we also make a use of this day by practicing the use of several gears and equipment needed for our upcoming Mera Peak climbing endeavor. Your climbing leader will give your some important advise and information regarding your safety and help you prepare better by teaching you proper necessary climbing techniques. Stay overnight at Khare village.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 10: Khare to Mera Peak Base Camp (5,350m/17,552ft)

Hope you had a proper sleep last night because today we are scheduled to reach the Mera Peak Base Camp which can be a daunting task as en-route we have to face the challenging Mera La Pass. After having our breakfast, we walk on a steep trail away from Khare village and reach snowline where frozen scree and rock boulders can be seen scattered around the entire trail. Later we arrive at the Mera Glacier which allows us to walk on a plain flattened land mass but be wary as there are many deep crevasses here to look out for. We now reach 5,400 meters which is the top of Mera La Pass and then start descending some hundred meters down into the Hongu river valley again. It takes us approximately 4 hours to reach at the base camp of Mera Peak where we are to make up our tent for our stay and have our food. Stay overnight at Mera Peak Base Camp.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 3-4 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 11: Climb to Mera High camp (5,750m/18,865ft).

It is probably going to be a very freezing morning with ice forming all over today. Nevertheless if the weather conditions are in favor of us, we can undoubtedly reach the Mera High Camp certainly before dawn today. We have to be very cautious while making our way into the trail leading us to the High Camp of Mera Peak. After struggling through snowy trails with frigid mountain temperatures, we arrive at High Camp after 4-5 hours of steep climbing. From here, if the clouds don’t obscure your vision, you can see the summit of the glorious Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu ahead you which can be very memorable experiences of this entire journey. Now we have to rest as we have a very short night ahead for tomorrows climb to the summit of Mera Peak. Stay overnight at High Camp.

Accommodation: Local Teahouse – Walking Time: 4-5 hrs – Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 12: Summit day and descend to Khare

Today is the day we reach to our target, the summit of Mera peak.  We wake up at 2 am and after a breakfast, the group will put on crampons and rope up before setting out for the summit. From the high camp a well acclimatized party will take 3 – 4 hours to get to the central summit of Mera peak. If time and conditions permit we may opt to make the traverse to the slightly higher north summit. The decision as to whether we attempt the north summit will be taken by the trip leader as per the conditions. From the summit we enjoy the magnificent views of Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,029ft), Cho-Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,940ft), Makalu (8,463m/27,766ft), Kangchenjunga (8,586m/28,169ft), Nuptse (7,855m/25,770ft), Lobuche East (6,145m/20,160ft), Chamlang (7,319m/24,013ft) are spectacular from the summit. We then retrace your steps to and celebrate our successful summit. A long but most satisfying day! Walking time 8-9 hrs. Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 13: A contingency day

This is merely a contingency day prepared just in case if today the weather doesn’t permit us to go ahead with our climb over to the summit of Mera Peak. If the weather is stable and snow storms are not coming our way then we are sure to make our climb to the summit of Mera Peak today. Nevertheless in the case that we may postpone our attempt to summit the peak today then this day will behave as a contingency day for our climb tomorrow.

Included Meals: B, L, D

Day 14: Khare to Kothe

After a great success of Mera peak climbing we descend through Hinku valley to Kothe for our overnight stop in a local teahouse. We are very happy on our successful trip and enjoy the evening with local food and drinks and relax at Kothe. Overnight in local teahouse. Walking time 4-5 hrs. Included Meals: B, L, D

Mera Peak climbing -18 days Reviews

Mera Peak on NY's eve 2017

Coming from someone that travels the world and deals with many tour operators, I must say, Icicles Adventures Trek & Tours has raised the bar in terms of service and execution.

Planning my trek/climb was easy and swift, they made sure everything I need is covered and catered to. Email communication was always professional, clear and detailed, and prompt.

They assigned the ideal Sherpa guide for my adventure- speaks fluent English, excellent climbing skills, flushed with knowledge about the mountains and is always in a positive mood! If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have reached the top of Mera Peak and become the 1st to ascent the mountain in 2017!

Their extraordinary service extends beyond that. I picked up an injury during my descent and had trouble trekking and in no time, they chased my insurance company, arranged for a rescue helicopter, checked me in a hospital, kept me company till I was discharged and checked me in to my hotel. I NEVER felt alone!

All in all, it was a memorable experience. I see Indira, Hari and Kipa not as my travel consultants but rather as family. I am still in touch with them and without a shadow of a doubt, I am returning to Nepal through them!
