HIGHLIGHTS
  • Climb to the summit of Mera Peak (6,461 m)
  • Enjoy conquering one of the most sought-after trekking peaks in Nepal
  • See the magnificent Himalayas
  • Cross the Zatrwa La Pass
This 18-day, guided trip will take you to the top of Mera Peak (6,461 m), one of the most sought-after trekking peaks in Nepal. Starting from Kathmandu, the Nepalese capital city, we will fly to Lukla and continue our journey to Mera Peak Base Camp via Pangkongma, Chhatra Khola and Khare until we reach the upper edge of the famous Khumbu region, home to some of the highest peaks in the world.

Summit the peak under the watchful supervision of our expert guide. In case the day is clear, you will enjoy stunning views from atop the peak, before heading down the same route.

Staying in Hotel Moonlight or similar on arrival in Kathmandu. Standard teahouses and tents will be used for accommodation during the trek. Please note that most teahouses only have shared toilet facilities. For tent accommodation, a four-season sleeping bag and a foam mattress will be provided. All accommodations in Kathmandu and in teahouses are on a twin-shared basis.

We can request for a single room in Kathmandu and during the trek (wherever possible) at an additional single supplement fee of USD 350 per person. However, single supplement during the trek will not be possible everyday since there are several teahouses along the trekking route that do not allow single room accommodation. At most, you will get single rooms only in lower-elevation areas.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • 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.
