Enjoy excellent views of high Himalayas that include Everest, Chooyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and other neighboring peaks during our Mera Peak adventure that comprises a short mountain flight to Lukla, followed by trekking through Sherpa inhabited villages.
Following the trekking and hiking route, we make our way off the beaten path along Hinku Honku valley. We trek up to Mera Peak base camp, summit the peak and return with an experience of lifetime.
Mera Peak doesn’t require technical peak climbing experience as the snow slopes do not exceed more than 30 degrees. There will be fixed ropes and you are safeguarded by fixed lines. You will be following the climbing Sherpa’s instructions and footsteps during the summit day.
Accommodation is in teahouses during the trek until we reach Khare where we spend two nights in tented camps with the climbing crew (porters, cook, guide, and leader).
We return back to Lukla and board a scenic flight to Kathmandu that ends our exciting Mera Peak climbing adventure.

How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
