Exceptional Panoramic View from the Summit

We begin the Mera trek via the remote region of Panch Pokhara in the Hinku valley to Khare. To make the Mera peak climb summit day shorter and enjoyable, we set our high camp at 5800 meters on a rocky shelf behind a large vertical rock. It provides some degree of shelter. The panoramic view seen from our Mera High Camp is truly breathtaking and probably one of the best of its kind. Ultimately the Mera peak climbing summit day starts early in the morning. We approach the Mere peak by the northern route. Particularly it involves a gradual climb with an outstanding mountain panorama always in sight.

All personal and group climbing gear is provided including La – Sportiva climbing boots. Thus, no need to buy or bring any expensive climbing gear.

The view from the summit is one of the finest in the Himalayas. Truly five spectacular 8000-meter peaks visible. Mt. Everest (8848 m), Cho - Oyu (8201 m), Lhotse (8516 m), Makalu (8463 m), Kanchenjunga (8586 m) as well as Nuptse (7855 m) and Chamlang (7319 m) – incomparable vista. We trek out a shorter route back to Lukla via the Zetra la to end the challenging expedition trip of Mera peak climbing.

We stay in a combination of teahouse and camping. Teahouse while on trekking and around 3 nights on tented camping while on climbing the Mera peak. We have a food menu from the teahouse to choose from and our cook prepares the food while on camp. As a safety precaution, we always carry an Oxygen cylinder with a regulator or Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) along with a comprehensive medical kit.
