Join our superb itinerary on Mera Peak Climbing with Amphu Lapcha pass and return via the heartland of Sherpa culture including Namche Bazzar. Mera Peak (6,461m/ 21,190 ft) is an exciting, scenically stunning mountain becoming popular among peak climbers and is the highest trekking peak in Nepal at Everest Khumbu Valley. Situated on the edge of famous Khumbu Region and dominated by Mt. Everest, climbing Mera peak is an opportunity to all the adventure seekers who are physically fit. The only qualification we need to ascend Mera peak is we need to be physically fit and have an extrovert sense of adventure. The climb rewarded by the amazing views of the mighty 8000m Mountains including Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and many other peaks is an unforgettable experience.

Although physically very demanding on account of the altitude, the climb on Mera Peak is not technically difficult as ascending snow slopes rarely exceed 30 degrees. Our Mera peak itinerary has been carefully designed to allow gradual acclimatization for the climbers. The walk in initially through the beautiful and virgin forest of the Hinku Valley provides excellent acclimatization for the peak itself. Our unrivalled service, quality equipment, hygienic food, reliable trekking staffs and an experienced leader ensure that we Mera trip will be an excellent adventure experience in Nepal.

NOTE: It has been a matter of curiosity for many climbers on which North Mera Peak (6,476m/21,240 ft, Central Mera Peak (6,461m/ 21,190 ft), South Mera Peak (6064m/ 19890 ft) have we been operating for our Mera expedition. In general, we operate expedition to Mera Central (6,461m/ 21,190 ft) although the highest one is Mera North (6,476m/21,240 ft). Due to huge crevasses and glacial changes happening there in the route to Mera North, we operate most of the expedition to Mera Central. Despite the safety hazard, if one chooses to do Mera North, we operate the expedition to Mera North also at their request.

A steep uphill climb brings us to a cairned notch in the ridge with a collection of Buddhist prayer flags at 4,450m. This small pass is called the Zatrwa Og, from here the path traverses across a boulder slope, round a corner and climbs once again to the Zatrwa-La at 4,600 m. In bad weather to find the path of our route can be quite misleading, so care should be taken but with fine weather, the views across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are very impressive, as well as the scenery across the rolling foothills of the Hinku Valley. From here less than an hour we reach Thuli Karkha. Overnight at Thuli Kharka. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner

    Mera Base Camp to High camp (5,780m/18,958ft): 4-5 hours We take the route through Mera La pass to reach the Mera High Camp today. Our path is along a rocky trail, which can be hazardous if it has recently snowed, as there are a number of crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn. We set up a high camp while enjoying excellent views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, south face of Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang and Baruntse. Overnight at Mera High Camp. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day12 - 13
    Mera High Camp to Summit (6,461m/21,1907ft) and back to Khare (5045m/16,547ft): 8-9 hours This is a really big day for us as we will be summiting Mera Peak today. We wake up around 2 in the morning for breakfast. It’s going to be very cold in the beginning but soon we warm up as we continue up the glacier and onto a peculiar ridge. The first rays of the sun hit the big peaks in an amazing red glow. The route is still non-technical as we slowly climb higher into the ever-thinning air. The slope steepens for a section behind the ridge and the summit comes back into view. At the foot of the final steep summit cone, we may attach to a fixed rope depending on the conditions. The summit is only a few meters away. From the summit, we take in amazing views of the mighty Himalayas including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho-Oyu (8,210m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m), Nuptse (7,855m), Chamlang (7,319m), Baruntse (7 ,129m) and others.

Therefore, this day is set aside as a contingency in case we are unable to summit the Mera on day 12 due to bad weather conditions or any other unanticipated reason. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day14 - 15
    Kongma Dingma to Seto Pokhara via Honku Valley [5035m/16519ft]: 5-6 hrs We head up into the upper yak pastures of this incredible remote valley. All morning the great flanks of Chamlang dominate on our left, and the spire of Baruntse comes into view beyond. The terrain is remarkably benign, especially considering we are actually heading directly into the very epicenter of the highest group of mountains in the world. The valley floor remains broad and straight, only gradually rising to the blind alley of peaks ahead. It is almost a shock to realize that the two majestic mountains we are heading straight towards are none other than Everest and Lhotse. Overnight in camp at Seto Pokhari. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day15 - 16
    Seto Pokhari to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(South) [5650m/18536 ft]: 5-6 hrs We trek through the high altitude route from Seto Pokhari to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp. This is one of the remotest parts of the Himalayas. We rarely meet any trekkers en route except if it is very high touristic season. We climb steadily up to and just beyond Seto Pokhari (White Lake), the first of a series of lakes that occupy the upper Honku Basin. Experience the wilderness of the Honku Valley. On the right is Chamlang (7321m) with hanging glaciers on its South-West and North-West faces, the Honku Valley is true mountain wilderness. Overnight in Amphu Lapcha Base Camp. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day16 - 17
    Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(South) to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(North) [5300m/17385 ft]: 6-7 hrs Starting from the South base of Amphu Lapcha, today is an early morning climb. The climb involves steep sections on rock and ice. It`s better to tackle the pass early in the morning when the snow is stable, i.e., before sunlight melts the snow. We use climbing ropes wherever necessary. The last sections of the climb to Amphu Lapcha winds up through snow shelves. On the other side, a steep descent awaits to be endeavored on fixed lines leading down to the moraine. Reaching at the Amphu Lapcha North Base Camp, we camp and spend the night there. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day17 - 18
    Amphu Lapcha Base Camp to Pangboche [3930m/12893 ft]: 5-6 hrs We walk downhill along the moraine to arrive at Chukkung, the starting point for the Island Peak. The wilderness of the remote Hinku Valley now introduces us to the civilization of Khumbu Region. The Imja Khola joins the Dudh Koshi river a little above the Pangboche Village. There is a famous monastery at Pangboche believed to have been the oldest in the Khumbu region. To reach Pangboche after a few long days of hard mountaineering and trekking is a delight. Spending night in the comfort of the lodges in this occupied village is a warm welcome which we feel, is well deserved. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day18 - 19
    Pangboche to Namche Bazaar [3440m/11286 ft]: 5-6 hrs Descending out of the alpine desert and back into greenery of pine forests is what our eyes love today. The path leads to a steep uphill climb into Tengboche. After making a brief visit to the Tengboche Monastery, we make a steep descent and the trial leads us back along the Dudh Kosi river. We keep a lookout for wild life such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc., while we pass through the forest by the trail. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar where we want to take a long last look back to Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche. The final steep climb traverses the hill side taking us to Namche Bazaar. We take a nice hot shower and have very relaxed sleep in our room in Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day19 - 20
    Namche Bazaar to Lukla: 6-7 hrs The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in-distance snow covered peaks. We walk through the Sherpa villages' noticing impressive faith in Buddhism and culture of prayer stones and prayers flag while we walk through the villages. On arrival in Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek on a happy note with everyone back safe and sound with smile on their faces! Overnight in Lukla. Included meals:Breakfast Lunch Dinner
