Here is what the route from Kathmandu to Mera Peak looks like.
Firstly, you'll arrive at the Tribhuvan International Airport, where our staff will greet and escort you to the hotel; then, after a rest day is organized where you can prepare for the trek and also shop for some gear.
We’ll then begin the morning with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, we’ll hike to Paiya and then to Panggom. The hike continues to Ningsow, Chhatra Khola, Kothe, Thaknak, and Khare. All along the route, attractive wildlife features, like dense forests, rocky paths, and rivers, will keep you entertained.
In Khare, we’ll have a day for acclimatization and pre-climb training. After training, you’ll all be set for the climb. From Khare, we’ll ascend to Mera High Camp crossing the Mera Base Camp. Upon reaching Mera High Camp, we’ll rest for the night and prepare for the climb. Now, the ultimate day awaited all, the final summit of Mera Peak.
The views from Mera High Camp are spectacular and beyond anyone’s imagination. You can enjoy the views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Cho Oyu, and Mt. Lhotse. Later, you’ll ascend to Khare, Kothe, Thuli Kharka, and then to Lukla via Zatrwa La Pass. From Lukla, we’ll fly back to Kathmandu and bid farewell to the Himalayas.
While rating the difficulty level of the Mera Peak Climbing on a scale of 0-10, it ranges from 7-8. It is graded as a moderate to strenuous climb, which one can endure with even a beginner-level experience.
Despite the moderate level, you must have excellent physical fitness. To maintain this fitness level, you can include cardio exercises like running, swimming, and walking in your schedule.
Another factor is altitude. The highest altitude you’ll reach is 6476m, and you may be susceptible to high altitude sickness. Acute mountain sickness is dangerous and needs to be seriously addressed.
We take this matter very seriously and provide frequent training to our trekking staff. Your designated trekking guides will provide accurate information about the pace of your walk and how to acclimate to the high altitude. They'll also carry the necessary medications like Acetazolamide or Diamox, an oximeter, and another essential kit.
Therefore, please be assured of your safety.
