- Summit Mera Peak, the most soughtafter trekking peak in Nepal
- Trek through highland Sherpa villages enjoying magnificent views of the Himalayas
- See amazing views of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu & Makalu mountains from Mera's summit
Start your journey to the Himalayas with an exciting flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Head for the rural village of Pangkoma next and continue your journey to Mera Peak High Camp (5,200m) via Ningshow, Chhatra Khola, Kothe, Thagnak and Khare. Trek steadily to allow your body to acclimatize to the increasing altitude.
Summit the mountain via its northern face. This route requires less technical skills even if it is physically demanding. Enjoy stunning views of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Kanchenjunga mountains, all above 8000m, from the peak before starting your journey down.
The itinerary has been carefully designed with both novice and experienced mountaineers in mind. You will receive training before summiting the peak. However, some prior experience in climbing and mountaineering will be of much help. Your mountaineering guide will carry a comprehensive medical kit along with a satellite phone (for emergency communication), oxygen cylinder, portable altitude chamber and other necessary equipments and climbing gear with him to ensure that the climb is carried out in comfort and safety.

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.
