Overview:

Mera Peak Climbing Trip brings one of the most wonderful trekking experiences in addition to the climbing adventure to the 6,461 meters high mountain.

Mera Peak In fact is a climb, but if you don’t consider yourself to be a climber then don’t let this put you off. It’s a good mountain for trekkers who would like a straightforward introduction to mountaineering. The majority of the ascent involves a walk up a glacier requiring basic ice axe and crampon skills. There is plenty of opportunity to gain proficiency in these at the bottom of the Mera Glacier. Although the mountain has a trekking summit of 6431m which needs nothing more than this, Mera Central, the summit most people climb, usually involves a 30 metre ascent of a 60° snow dome using fixed rope and jumar, depending on snow conditions.

Mera Peak would be a suitable objective for people with previous mountaineering experience (Scotland, Alps, New Zealand or North America Rockies etc) looking for a Himalayan expedition climbing over 6,000m.

This trip goes along the Hinku valley in the Khumbu region. Experiencing the less crowded trek along the Hinku valley and trekking over high Himalayan pass to reach the base camp of “Mera peak” is an amazing feat to the adventurers. Once you land at Lukla airstrip the Himalayan wonders begin to amaze us all throughout the trek and climb.

Trekking over Zwatra La pass and past the amazing places of Thuli Kharka, Khare and Kothe brings you the incredible joy of reaching the base camp of Mera peak for further adventure over the mountain towards the summit. View of 8,000 meters mountains Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and Kanchenjunga including several other mountain peaks from the summit of the 6,461 meters high Mera peak makes the trip truly unforgettable.

While you are on the trip, you will surely enjoy the adventure and when you are done with the trip, you will have a lot of memories to cherish and stories to share. Follow us on TripAdvisor

INTRODUCION:

Trango Adventure has a long track record of organising Trekking & Tours. We have been organising Mera Peak Trips in Nepal every year. We designed our itinerary based on Over 40 Years of experience, which is the best in terms of acclimatization, safety and enjoyment.

It is our intention to keep to the day by day itinerary detailed below, although there might be some flexibility due to local conditions or other factors beyond our control. If this is the case the trek leader will do everything possible to work out the changes to the itinerary in order to minimize your inconvenience.

Adventure travel requires an open and flexible attitude. You may experience extreme conditions, unpredictable weather and last-minute changes to the itinerary beyond our control. The ability to work in team is an important aspect of all of our trips.

DETAILED ITINERARY

D-1

ARRIVAL DAY, KATHMANDU,NEPAL:

Today you will arrive in the beautiful city Kathmandu, The capital of  Nepal. As soon as you come out of the Kathmandu airport, you will find our representative waiting for you in the waiting area right outside the arrival lounge. You will be warmly greeted and welcomed by the representative and led to the vehicle. Our vehicle will take you to the trip hotel, most of the time in Thamel, that is 20-30 minutes drive, depending upon traffic, from the airport.

SIGHTSEEING AND PREPARATION DAY:

After breakfast you will have a wonderful cultural heritage tour of Kathmandu valley. As part of the tour, we are going to visit four of the UNESCO Heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley. The places we visit today are incredible mixture of culture, history, spirituality, art and stories. Overnight in Hote.

Swoyambhunath

Believed to have been created on its own, this Budhhist stupa is the oldest of all the monuments in Kathmandu valley. Standing atop a small hillock, Swoyambunath, known as monkey temple amongst tourists, provides a fascinating view of the valley, surrounding hills and snow-capped mountain at the distance on a clear day.

Patan Durbar Square

One of the three medieval palace squares, Patan Durbar Square holds its medieval art and architectural grandeur. Amazing skill of the artisans is evident in each and every building that stands in the square. The square comprises of medieval palace, temples and museum.

Pashupatinath

This site is the most sacred Hindu temple area in the country. But, as the temple is strictly a Hindu only area, non-Hindu tourists go there to watch the unique Hindu cremation rituals on the bank of River Bagmati. The death rites of Hindu family there are so engrossing and heart-touching which make you feel the moment. It’s not any kind of intrusion in being there and watching somebody being cremated in an open ground. It’s a great cultural experience.

Boudhanath

This giant Buddhist stupa is considered as the biggest one in the world. This small square with giant shrine has a powerful presence of the spiritual vibrations. It’s an important pilgrimage site for the people following Tibetan Buddhism.

INTERNAL FLIGHTS

SKARDU  FLIGHTS

Skardu is a weather-dependent airport. Since the valley is completely surrounded by high mountains, planes can only land here in good visibility and this means flights to and from Skardu are never guaranteed. The planes do fly more often than not, but cancellations can and do occur and in these circumstances we will travel by road.

HEALTH & VACCINATION

You should contact your doctor or travel clinic to check whether you specific require any vaccinations or other preventive measures. You should be up to date with routine courses and boosters as recommended in the UK e.g. diphtheria-tetanus-polio and measles-mumps-rubella), along with hepatitis A and typhoid. Malarial prophylaxis is dicretionary for this trip. Malaria exists in the area around Islamabad. However, incidences of urban transmission of malaria are extremely low. In Skardu and in the mountains there is no malaria risk. A certificate of yellow fever vaccination is required if travelling from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission and for travellers having transited for more than 12 hrs through an airport of a country with risk of yellow fever transmission. Travellers who intend to visit Pakistan for 4 weeks or more that proof of Polio vaccination will be required on exit of the country. On holidays to more remote areas you should also have a dentist check up. A good online resource is Travel Health Pro. Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take precautions to avoid mosquito bites

We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already.
