trip introduction

Mera Peak climbing (6427m  is a mountain in the Mahalangur  Himal range. Mera peak is classified as a trekking peak. It has three main peaks: Mera North, 6,476m  Mera Central, 6,461m, and Mera South, 6,065m. it is a trekking peak that is visible from the south as a separate peak. Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal. This peak was first explored by British expeditions in the early 1950s before and after the ascent of Everest. Members of these teams included Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, Eric Shipton, and George Lowe.

We organize the Mera peak climbing by following the route that heads south from Lukla.  and then continue to beautiful Hinku Valley and later returns back from Zatra La pass. Following this route has a few advantages. Additionally, the route is longer so better acclimatization is needed. the trail follows wilderness, sweet villages, Pine, and rhododendron forests. that will take us to the wild Hinku Valley to reach Mera Peak. which will give you a glimpse into the rich culture of the locals.

before climbing a peak our mountain guide will give you special climbing training.  you will learn and practice all the climbing techniques.  you will the practical use of crampons, ice axes, ropes, rescue, etc. to make sure that all the required skills and to boost your confidence for a successful summit of Mera Peak. from the summit extends one of the most beautiful panoramas of Nepal: Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Everest, Lhotse, Baruntse, Makalu, Kangchenjunga

We cross a shoulder to a sheepfold then a big climb awaits us before a “Nepalese dish” in a rhododendron forest. We descend slightly and cross a torrent before ascending to the hamlet of Thukdingma. There is only one last zigzag climb in the middle of a forest to reach the village of Chutanga.

We reach the Kharka teng lodge and continue on an excellent path but often snowy or even icy in autumn (sticks recommended). We go up the slope under a rocky bar to reach a grassy shoulder. The view of the Himalayas now widens to Cho Oyu, this 8,153-meter peak located on the Tibetan border straddling the valleys of Thame and Gokyo lakes.

We cross a shoulder that gives access to a balcony path from which we discover the Hinku Khola valley dominated by the Mera peak. We descend into a forest of young rhododendrons then reach the site of Thulo Dunga. The descent continues along the cliff to Traktor. A “Nepalese flat” then leads us to Tashing Dingma followed by a severe climb up the cliffside on a steep staircase to pass a shoulder before descending on the other side to overlook the Hinku Khola from the edge of the moraine.

Accomodation & meal


In a standard category hotel (base: double room) in Kathmandu and Pokhara, during the rest of the trip in a tent (3-person tents for 2 people) or in a lodge depending on the trip. The lodges in Nepal are very comfortable random. In general, conditions are quite good around the Annapurnas and the Everest region. On the other hand, in Mustang, in the Manaslu,  Tsum valley, and in the region of Kangchanjung or Makalu, they can be very rudimentary to the point of being a dormitory sometimes even a kitchen. lodges can look like a refuge or sometimes a bed and breakfast from home. Most of the time it is a family house with double, triple, or dormitory rooms. Toilets and showers are always separate. It is essential to check that the water is not heated with wood, as this contributes to deforestation. Most of the time, the water is heated with solar energy


In the cities, many restaurants allow us to discover the typical local cuisine. Meat is scarce in the high mountain, the Nepalese are generally vegetarians. The basic ingredients are rice, pasta, lentils, potatoes, vegetables. Snacks are included during the trek (cereal bars, dried fruits, etc.).

For camping trek accommodation: during the trek, breakfasts and evening meals are prepared by the kitchen team. They are taken under the mess tent. Depending on the profile of the stages (length of the day’s walk and/or presence of water), midday snacks will be served hot or cold in the form of picnics.

For tea house trek accommodation: meals are prepared by the cooks of the lodge and are taken in the dining room. Here is a typical one-day menu:

  • breakfast: eggs, toast or chapati, or Tibetan bread or pancakes, or pancakes, butter/jam, tea or coffee
  • lunch: the main course, tea or coffee.
  • dinner: soup, main course, fruit (fresh or canned), tea or coffee

NB: Hindus and Buddhists are most often vegetarians. We, therefore, eat very little meat or fish. The dishes are pasta, rice, potatoes, lentils, etc.

DRINKS: during the trek, tea is served with meals (two cups of tea per meal). Additional cups of tea and other beverages, including mineral water, are the responsibility of the participants. You can fill your gourds with water in the lodges, but it is essential to treat them with purifying tablets. Avoid buying plastic bottles.
