Whilst the summiting Mera Peak is our ultimate goal, it combines with a beautiful walk in up the relatively quiet Arun Valley. The views from the summit are genuinely spectacular: Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam can all be seen clearly and watching the sunrise across the heads of these mountains is experience of lifetime.
Mera Peak climbing adventure starts with the exhilarating flight Kathmandu to Lukla that offers great views all the way. Trekking follows trail to Paiya and Pangom avoiding the Zatrwa La. This route is quiet but heavily farmed and heads toward north heading into pristine bamboo and rhododendron jungle after moves on up Arun Valley with plenty of time to acclimatize before reaches to Khare (Mera Peak base camp). The adventure journey starts from Khare to Mera La and spectacular high camp clinging on to a rocky outcrop on the edge of the glacier. Himalayas giants glowing orange as light fades at the time of sunset is amazing. The adventure journey to Mera Peak summit is long and hard slogs up the glacier before a short and sharp scramble ups an ice-wall. Summit of Mera Peak gives fantastic views of five 8000m peaks, Everest and Lhotse to the north, Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east, and Cho Oyu to the west.
After summiting the Mera Peak, your journey descends back to Khare before tracking back down the Arun valley and finally heading over the Zatrwa La pass now that you're fully acclimatized and dropping back into Lukla. We take a flight back from Lukla to Kathmandu to end the adventure.
