Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary - 14 days

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary - 14 days

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary of 14 days takes you to Nepal's highest trekking peak, Mera Peak. Lying in the Hinku Valley of Everest Region, Mera Peak is a popular climbing peak with an easy route. A favorite of many climbers who come to Nepal, Mera Peak is the perfect acclimatization peak if you are planning to climb Mount Everest or any of the major peaks in the Khumbu Region.

The route to Mera Peak lies off-the-beaten-path in the rarely visited Hinku Valley. The trail is secluded, and the area is wild and pristine, with very few human settlements. Most nights, you will be sleeping at teahouses located at isolated kharkas or summer camps of yak herders.

You make your summit push after spending a night camping at Mera High Camp (5,780m). The route is easy, and very little technical climbing is involved. Thin mountain air and freezing cold are the only two issues that will make your ascent difficult. The Himalayan panorama from the summit is stunning. Mount Everest and other 8,000 meter peaks appear close to the summit. You make your descent to Lukla via the same route.

Safety of the team members while trekking and climbing are paramount and given top priority. An experienced local Sherpa climbing guide leads our Mera Peak Climbing with +20 years of climbing experience.

Trip Overview

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary of 14 days is one of the few thrilling adventures that take you to one of the remotest and highest corners of the world. You climb Mera Peak, the highest trekking peak in Nepal, after trekking past the untouched and wild Hinku Valley. The valley, located in the Everest Region, is a storehouse of rare Himalayan flora and fauna. This is one of the few trails in the Khumbu which remains less crowded even during peak season. Leading the team will be a Sherpa climbing guide with more than two decades of climbing experience.

You begin your Mera Peak adventure with a scenic and memorable flight to the Sherpa town of Lukla. The flight over tall mountains and precipitous cliffs is counted as one of the world's extreme flying experiences. You start your trek after landing at the narrow airstrip.

Your first destination is Chutanga, a small Sherpa village near Lukla. In the next couple of days, you make your way past dense rhododendron forests and pine and gurgling rivers. With only a stray group or two sharing the trail, you pretty much have the trail to yourself. Enjoy the splendors of nature without getting interrupted. You cross over to the Hinku Valley after crossing Zatrwa La, a mountain pass that lies between Khumbu and Hinku valleys.

Hinku Valley is still untouched and wild, with few villages. Unlike other parts of the Kumbu Region, here you will find only a few scattered teahouses. Yak herders use these uninhabited areas to build their summer camps known as 'kharkas.' Far from civilization, teahouses along with the route offer only basic services – shelter, food, communal toilet, and a warm bed. If you are used to creature comforts and traveling in luxury, you need to think twice before booking this trip.

On Day 7, you reach Khare, where you will spend an extra day acclimatizing and attending pre-climb training. Final gear and equipment check will be done before retiring. You make your summit push after spending a night camping at Mera High Camp. Each climber will get a single tent to sleep in. The local crew will prepare food. Healthy and nutritious meals will be provided.

The final ascent to the summit will involve an early start at 2 AM when the weather is stable and less windy. The group will be secured by man-rope, and the members will walk in a single file. It is a gradual ascent with no technical sections most of the way. It is normal to feel out of breath and wheezy as the air is very thin at this altitude.

The final 40-50 meters to the summit is the most challenging. It is a steep incline where we use fixed rope and jumars to reach the Mera Peak summit. Mount Everest (8848m), Kanchenjunga (8586m), Lhotse (8,516m), Cho Oyu (8,188m), and Makalu (8,485m) - five of the 14 eight-thousanders can be viewed from the summit as well the trail leading to the summit.

Once you step on the summit, celebrate your victory with your teammates. You have done it! Yes, you achieved what you set to do, and it is a great moment. Take pictures and take in the views for one last time before heading back. You trek down to Khare and return to Lukla via the same route. From Lukla, you catch a flight back to Kathmandu, where your trip ends.

The best seasons to climb Mera Peak are spring and autumn when the weather is clear and dry. Graded PD (little difficult) on the Alpine Difficulty Grade, Mera Peak can be climbed by beginners provided they have high altitude (+4,000m) trekking experience. Though the route to the summit is easy and not much technical climbing is needed, the high altitude and extreme cold make it very difficult. A high level of stamina and endurance is needed, and one needs to be in top physical form.

The elevation gain on this trip is pretty serious, and you should come prepared. On the second day of your trek, you cross a high pass at 4,600m. This will leave you pretty sick if your body is not prepared for high altitude. Though our guides carry a first aid box and are prepared for any crisis, it would be better if you weigh in the pros and cons seriously before embarking on this trip. Would you please go through the essential information section for tips on training and the essential gear and equipment needed for this trip?

As this itinerary takes you to the summit of Mera Peak in a short period, this trip is recommended for those looking for an acclimatization climb before conquering a bigger mountain. Novices with high-altitude walking experience can also do it.

Accommodation on the trail will be at local teahouses. Facilities on this route are basic compared to the popular EBC trail. You spend only one night in a tented camp at Mera High Camp. Makalu Barun National Park Entry Permit, Khumbu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit, and Mera Peak Climbing Permit are needed. This package includes all permits, domestic flights, accommodation, and food on the trail, plus accommodation in Kathmandu.

Mera Peak Expedition

After ANNAPURNA CIRCUIT TREK, I AM DOING THIS EXPEDITION WITH NABA'S COMPANY. I was assigned Chewang Sherpa for this climbing. And he is the best in the game. The climbing wasn't as challenging as I expected but it was worthy. THe view from the top are incredible. The team will also let you go through pre-climb training. Nothing to compromise, instead you will be offered more than you expect. Had best time in Nepal. Thanks to THIRD ROCK ADVENTURES.

Great experience climbing Mera Summit!

We did the 14 day Mera Summit trip with Third Rock and everything was perfect! Preparing for the trip, Naba was accommodating, flexible and crystal clear in his communication. During the trip, the crew (Lakpa, Dewan and Kumar) went above and beyond to make the best possible experience for us. Always proactive, accommodating, supporting, discrete and knowledgable, they made this a trip to never forget. Our next trips to Nepal will certainly be with Third Rock and hopefully with the same crew! Thanks guys!

Mera Peak Expedtion

I took a peak climbing tour to Mera Peak in Oct/Nov. It was truly a journey of a lifetime. The trekking was very professional and well organized. There was a high level of focus on safety with an itinerary that minimized the risk of high altitude sickness. The climbing team lead by Chhewang– was competent, very friendly, and helpful. The kitchen staff produced tasty and hygienic prepared food even under difficult conditions. I had a wonderful trip to Mera Peak with the most astonishing views of the beautiful surrounding mountains. I can highly recommend “Third Rock Adventures” for peak climbing in Nepal.

5-star Mera Peak

After doing EBC, AC, ABC and Mustang treks, I was keen to try for Mera Peak. The team (a big thanks to Naba, and Chhewang) and an excellent pre-climb training maximized our summit chances, and I was lucky enough to get to the top. The sparsely populated Hinku valley is a lot less developed than the Khumbu and Annapurna regions, hence the terrain is relentlessly difficult and the tea houses are basic at best with minimal showers and rustic toilets en route. The food is decent, and the team went to great lengths to ensure the group was properly nourished - especially at base camp and high camp pre-summit day.

Dreamed and Did

I climbed 6,476 m peak in Nepal and that's a dream-come-true for me. I was fully prepared for this expedition but without the help of Naba and the climbing leader, I would never have dared to do it. I talked with Naba for days before I booked this climbing expedition. I double checked on the leader and everything. I am honored to have it done. I have promised Chewang, my mountaineering leader to do Island Peak with him. I will be back in 2 years.

The mountain view every day, from the first day surprised me. It was beautiful. The acclimatization day really helped me get along for the climbing part. It was freezing cold at High Camp.

Summited Mera Peak

When we reached a placed called Khare, the weather turned so bad that we had to wait 2 hours doing nothing. The guide offered hot noodle soup and shared his story and many experiences of summiting the peak for many times. Whenever we had time, he would ask for things to make me feel good. The climbing part was challenging to me but I did it without any hassle. I had done mountaineering class and it came handy for this peak. Anyone with good health and fit body can do it, but they have to make sure someone is looking for their safety and comfortness. And in case of Third Rock, they nailed it. Bravo, the team.

Mera Peak climbing

It was my first time with Third Rock Adventures and I loved the company. From the first day of sharing email and talking on phone to the final day of saying goodbye to Nepal, I was in safe hand, always looked after and cherished for little thing. Naba is a great man, working in this field for many years. He would share everything for the trip and make sure the team is on it until the top of the mountain and back to Kathmandu.

Loved it

I did it. The doubt I had about not being able to climb to the top was cleared when Chewang demonstrated his skill on pre-climb training day and help me hone my climbing skill. It was a productive day that helped me for the final push to the top. Although the climbing is not-so-hard, it can be challenging to someone like me. But if you are accompanied and guided by great leader like Chewang Sherpa, you can do it without any problems. This review for the climbing guide of third rock adventures

With quick medical service, Eli was okay to walk, but after almost 2 hours. She did climbed the peak. All thanks to the cheerful and helpful climbing guide.

Mera climb

My partner and I booked Mera Peak CLimbing this year. We hired a climbing leader from Third Rock Adventures who would look for our accommodations and food. The team in Kathmandu would look for the logistic and operations. We had to trek up to Mera High Camp and finally summit to the top. The acclimatization day and pre-climb training was really helpful for us. The view from the top was out of this world, and the world seems so small. We have best memories.

Mera Peak

This climb expedition was one of many mountains I have climbed around the globe. I found Naba's company to be a good operator and responsive to needs. The climbing leader was simply an amazing person. He would address to my every question and demand. Every accommodations along the route was satisfactory, some lodges had limited menu but it was unquestionable. The pre-climb training was a good start for the climb. We had beautiful stories swapped among ourselves and great time climbing the summit. Huge thanks to Chhewang for his great work out there in the mountain.

Mera Peak Climbing

I was lucky enough to be on the top of Mera on my 40th birthday this year. Thanks to Naba, and Chhewang for all their work getting me there. Accommodations in Kathmandu were very comfortable and the camp service was exceptional. The climbing leader let me have a good grip on the equipment on the training day. The final push was the unforgettable experience.

We successfully did it!

First of all, I want to thank Naba for guiding me for the preparation of the trek. I am highly grateful to him for assembling all information and a great team to climb the peak- the mountaineering leader assigned for me was not just an experienced leader but also an amazing person. He made us laugh at the high camp and he had us for the training before actual climb. He knew what next to do! Needless to say, that everyone at Third Rock was like a family. We were offered the best service, and when it comes to safety, Third Rock know their role. I am recommending you all this company for any climb in Nepal, or any trip in Nepal.

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary

They know what exactly to do and how to operate. They always had our safety and satisfaction on top of their priority. When we wanted this and that, they would do it. Even when I asked if I could add a few more days, they said yes. I was so happy to see the positivity. I thanked Naba for hosting this climbing expedition. We had amazing time and great talk. He recommended us another climb, and we couldn't say not to him. I think we will be doing it in a few years.

Highly Recommended

I recommend Third Rock Adventures for climbing expedition and I am not just talking about it simply. I am taking it from my recent Mera Peak Climbing experience. They have the best team for the expedition. Chewang rocked! He had more than 15 years of experience, and we knew it when we reached the high camp, and when he operated pre-climb training. We learned a lot, not just about the climb but also the Nepali people, their culture and the mountain stories. We loved our each second in Nepal. We could embrace the awe-inspiring view from top of the peak.

Mera Peak Climbing Itinerary

Guys, we did the climbing and now it's your turn. If you are looking at this review now, my friend, you are doing the best choosing this company. Go for it. You may ask me why, well I got many, but for now, let me highlight three prime reasons: 1) Experienced Climbing Leader, 2) Expert Group 3) Top-Notch Service. The leader they assigned us for this climbing had more than 20 years of experience. He was friendly and decisive. He knew what next step would be best for us. Expert Group in term of managing the expedition perfectly- there was no any complication and compromisation. They did it on time and greatly. Next, they had everyone doing their task perfectly, from Travel Consultant to Porter and Guide. God, I loved them. ANd the last point-top-notch-service. Yes, they offered us the best service. Our food and room was best. Even the itinerary was well-designed. You should definitely try them.

Best Climbing Experience

If you want to climb a peak in just about 2 weeks, we highly recommend this climbing for you. We did it and now relishing our memories. They have the best team, specially the climbing leader. We loved him. He made sure our safety counts the most. Even Naba at Thamel told us the same that our safety and satisfaction is their top priority and we could feel them. Highly recommended travel agency.

di ritorno dalla mia spedizione al Mera Peak, non 18 giorni, ma 14 giorni. Third Rock organizza due arrampicate sul Mera Peak (14 giorni e 18 giorni) e siccome avevo pochissimi giorni, ho scelto 14 giorni e non me ne sono pentito. Sono contento che il nostro capo alpinista fosse di grande esperienza, la sua esperienza è arrivata a giocare. Era deciso e molto attento quando si trattava di arrampicare. Avevamo un allenamento pre-salita che ci ha aiutato molto ad affrontare gradini ad altitudini più elevate. Abbiamo trascorso una notte impegnativa al Mera High Camp, ma ce l'abbiamo fatta! Abbiamo scalato con successo la vetta e ci siamo goduti i giorni più belli della nostra vita. Rimasi in soggezione nel vedere le vette torreggianti dall'alto. Grazie, Third Rock per questa opportunità.

Fabulous Experience

Я влюблен в Непал, его культуру и красоту природы. Я был в Непале впервые, но мне очень понравилось. Я совершал восхождение на пик Мера с Third Rock в сентябре. Мы завершили восхождение всего за 14 дней, и мне нравится, как они предлагают нам подготовку перед восхождением. Рад, что мы провели тренировку, которая очень помогла нам покорить вершину пика Мера. Это была сбывшаяся мечта, такой славный момент. Я поднимусь на Айленд Пик через два года и сделаю это с ТРЕТЬЕЙ Скалой, и я рекомендую вам это сделать.

We did it!

Third Rock Adventures made our dream come true. We climbed Mera Peak in just 14 days. They made it possible. I want to give credit to the climbing leader, who was a rockstar. He exactly knew what would be the best. We enjoyed the pre-climb training. They had the best-option for Mera High Camp. In short, everything was managed perfectly.

Good Deal

Dealing with Third Rock was easy. They offered me lots of email sharing about the trip from the very first day. The travel consultant responded professionally and dealing with Naba made it easier. He could answer all my questions. Chewang, my climbing leader was professional and friendly. I never felt hard or any complications.My porter was amazing, he carried all the stuff on his back. I enjoyed my pre-climb training where the leader demonstrated the basic skill of climbing and introduced me with all the climbing gears and equipment. Overall, I was more than satisfied.

Adventurous climb

The climb was admiteddly challenging, but with a great team it would be doable. I did the climb with the amazing team of Third Rock. Despite being shorter than usual itinerary, this climb was well-designed. I acclimatized for a day, had pre-climb training session and climbed to the top of peak. All because of the highly-experienced leader and the team.
