Our hotel at Kathmandu will provide a buffet-style breakfast, while all meals which also includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner - will also be served during the trekking and climbing sections. We can also look forward to special welcome and farewell dinners, which are sure to be delightful culinary taste buds.


On our trip, we will be staying in similar accommodations in Kathmandu, standard teahouses during the trek, and tents during the climbing section. All of these are included at the cost of the trip. Most teahouse accommodations will only have shared toilet facilities, while foam mattresses will be provided for tent accommodation. 

Toilet facilities will also be provided with necessary natural preservation at the climbing section. All accommodations in Kathmandu and teahouses will be at the twin-shared basis, but each individual will be provided with a single tent during the climbing section. If you prefer a single room at Kathmandu, you can request one by paying a single supplement of USD 290. Please note, however, that there are several teahouses at the trekking route that do not allow single room accommodation. While paying the single supplement guarantees a single room in Kathmandu, it may not always be feasible at the trekking areas at higher elevations.

Mera Peak Climbing Route

Mera Peak’s journey with the Peak Climbing Nepal team which lasts for around 18 eventful days. This expedition starts by leaving the historic city and the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu for Lukla. We will arrive at Lukla after 35 minutes for scenic air travel from Kathmandu. Soon after arriving in Lukla, you will trek up to Chhuthang on the first day of the tour. 

Then you will leave for Thuli Kharka(4300m) through the captivating Zatrawala Pass. After an overnight stay in the Thuli Kharka, your trek runs towards Kothe.From Kothe, you will leave in the early morning to reach Thangnak (4326m). After making it to Thangnak and spending a night there, your next destination will be at Khare. 

The land of Khare provides glimpses of soon to be climbed, Mera Peak. You will reach Khare for an overnight stay, but there will be one more day at the Khare for acclimatization. This means you will spend two nights staying at Khare before heading for Mera Base Camp(5300m). Your Himalayan trail has started from the base camp for the Mera peak, and it will move to Mera High Camp(5,700m) and then to the top of Mera Peak(6,476m). 

After the successful summit of Mera Peak, you will descend back to the Khare for a night stay on the very day. You will then retrace at the earlier trails to return to Lukla. On this stretch, you will cross Khare, Kothe, Thuli Kharka, and Lukla in many days. Your last night at the Khumbu region will be at Lukla just one night before the Kathmandu flight. Thereafter, you will fly one last time through Khumbu’s skies to trace back to Kathmandu. Soon after landing in Kathmandu, your Mera Peak Climbing expedition with us will end.

Mera Peak Climbing Difficulties 

There are several ways that difficulties could be encountered in the journey to the peak of Mera. Some of the features of the difficulties and problems that one can face while you are summit to this peak are as follows:


Regardless of the routes you take, the minimum distance you will be covering at the Mera Peak climbing is 125 km. The trails and ascends at the Mera Peak expedition are rough, steep, and snowy. To cover such a long distance in such difficult trails is not an easy task to perform. Thus, the distance is one of the difficulties for Mera Peak climbing.


There are three different routes and ways to ascend Mera Peak, and each of the routes is uniquely difficult or very easy depending on the journey. The route one runs through Lukla- Zatr La Pass – Tagnag- Mera Base Camp- High Camp- Summit. This particular route is the shortest but difficult route which is to be attained.

Similarly, the second route is through Lukla- Paiya- Thongnak- Khare-Base Camp- High Camp- Summit. This track is much easier than the earlier route. Therefore, the difficulty level of Mera peak climb is also differentiable with the other routes.

Altitude Sickness

Where there are mountains there is fear of altitude sickness. This mountain sickness is possible at higher altitude regions which is above 3500m. Mera Peak’s journey takes you from the lowest point 1400m(Kathmandu) all the way to the highest 6,476m(Mera Peak). In between these two places, you will change altitudes daily.

Therefore, anyone who is not good with new or high altitude can get caught by Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS) or Altitude Sickness. And this is one of the most difficult parts for the Mera Peak climb.

Mera Peak Climbing Weather and Temperature

The weather and temperature of higher regions are unpredictable at times. With such conditions, there is always a fear for harsh weather. The temperature can drop drastically at any time, and snowfall can occur at any point in the day.

And if that happens, your already strenuous Mera Peak climb will level up in difficulty. The warm temperature and rain or snowfall-free days are a must for easy climbing. Thus, any serious change in weather and temperature can make some difficulties while climbing.

Mera Peak Climbing Best Time

If you have been to Nepal for adventures before then, you surely know the best time for climbing/trekking in Nepal. Autumn and Spring are the two most favorable times for Mera Peak climbing. The temperature during these seasons are pretty much stable, and there are few chances of snowfall or rainfall. 

But, there are two seasons, Winter and Monsoon, which are considered as the off-season for any of the adventurous outings in Nepal. Winter is the coldest period of a year, and Monsoon is a time of sporadic to immense rainfall. 

The rainfall and snowfall are the two biggest fears for any climb, and very few adventurers want to risk their lives. Thus, the two best times for Mera Peak climbing are Autumn and Spring.
