Excellent trek, very enjoyable though very tough. Group leader was excellent. Mera Peak is certainly one of the experiences you'll never forget.
Mr G, Leeds

Mr G M, Derby

An excellent trip all round, especially the compatibility of the clients, and the firm and cautious leadership.

This is an exciting, scenically stunning mountain, that provides a superb challenge for the very fit, keen hill walker. The trek to Mera Peak is technically straightforward, but as Nepal’s highest trekking peak, at 6,476m/21,246ft, it is very demanding.

Our Mera Peak expedition begins with a walk through the virgin forest of the Hinku Valley. The valley is incredibly beautiful, and provides excellent acclimatisation for the Mera Peak trek itself. Further on, walking along the glacier with glorious panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Nupste, Makalu, Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu and other 7–8,000m giants, is an unforgettable experience. Our return trek, over the Zetra La, means we don’t retrace our steps and enjoy new vistas from start to finish.

We provide an unrivalled service on this Mera Peak expedition. Our top quality equipment, food, trekking staff and highly experienced leader all maximise your chance of achieving the summit. Call us now on 01453 844 400 to book the perfect trek to Mera Peak.

  3. Day 3 - Fly to Lukla, 2,866m/9,403ft. Trek To Puiyan, 2,835m/9,301ft - 6 hours.

    You will be transferred from your hotel to the airport for the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This is one of the most spectacular flights in the world. Twin Otter aircraft fly this route above contrasting country, with the snow line of the Himalayan range to the north and the rugged foothills of Nepal immediately below and stretching away to the south. The landing at Lukla airstrip, 2,866m/9,403ft, adds considerably to the general excitement and expectation. On arrival you can have a cup of tea while the crew sort out the baggage.

    As you leave Lukla, you take a sharp left turn and head south, descending through rhododendron forests, stunning when in their bloom in spring. Dramatic views of the Dudh Khosi slicing through the steep forested valley greet you on your right. It takes about one hour to weave your way down the trail to Surke, 2,339m/7,674ft. There is a good, flat piece of ground with the Surke Khola running through it, which provides a fine spot for a light lunch. You have good views of Mount Kumbila, 5,761m/18,900ft, looking back up the valley beyond Namche. It is a steady climb of around 2-3 hours to reach Chotak La, 2,945m/9,662ft, and then you contour for about an hour to reach Puiyan, 2,835m/9,301ft, which will be your base for the night. Puiyan is an attractive village with a scattering of lodges.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  4. Day 4 - Trek to Pangom, 2,850m/9,350ft - 4-5 hours.

    Today you begin climbing gradually until you can enjoy the view of Cho Oyo, 8,201m/26,906ft. After about an hour or so of walking and after crossing the Poya Khola, you turn off the main Jiri-Namche trail and onto the old trade route, climbing up to the ridgeline overlooking the Khare Khola. There you have good views of the old Everest expedition walk-in route from Jiri and the dramatic Dudh Kosi ('milk river'). You cross the Khari La, 3,081m/10,108ft, before descending through a spectacular rhododendron forest to Kharte, 2,683m/8,802ft. You now leave the main trail and begin contouring to the east. Lunch is enjoyed by a subsidiary stream of the Khari Khola. After lunch, you contour round the hillside through sessile oak forest for about an hour before a steady climb for three quarters of an hour up to the attractive farming and trading village of Pangom.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  5. Day 5 - Trek from Pangom to Najing Dingma, 2,850m/9350ft - 6-7 hours.
    mera peak trek from pangkongma r wymer.

    It is a short climb of about half an hour through rhododendron forest to reach the top of Pangkongma La, 3,178m/10,426ft. This is the watershed of the main tributaries of the great Dudh Kosi River and from the pass you will enjoy your first views of impressive, snow-capped Mera Peak. From the pass you make a steep descent for half an hour to the village of Sibuje, 2,770m/9,088ft. From Sibuje the trail undulates along the forested river valley to reach Najing Dingma.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  6. Day 6 - Trek from Najing Dingma to Cholem Pati, 3,160m/10,367ft – 6-7 hours.

    Today you have a steep climb to the tea house at Bhairum Danda at 3,280m/10,761ft where you will have stunning all round views of peaks and valleys. You then continue climbing to the high point for the day at 3,350m/10,991ft, before a steep descent back to the river and a welcome lunch stop. After lunch you follow a roller coaster trail through stunning forest, including some quite steep sections. At the end of the day you cross the river on a remarkable bridge made from a huge tree trunk to reach Cholem Pati.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  7. Day 7 - Trek to Khola Kharka, 3,600m/11,811ft – 5-6 hours.

    Heading north you follow the Hinkhu Khola, trekking through moss hung forest with many ups and downs as you negotiate side valleys and rocky ridges. Your overall height gradually increases until finally, after crossing a broad ridge of mixed forest you reach a sandy, boulder choked area known as Khola Kharka.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  8. Day 8 - Trek from Khola Kharka to Kote Mausam Kharka, 3,691m/12,110 – 6-7 hours.
    mera peak trek to tangnag r wymer.

    Today you are walking from one kharkha to another - a kharka being a high altitude grazing pasture for yaks and other animals. The trail today involves many ups and downs and you may be beginning to feel the altitude mildly. Finally you arrive at Kote, a little village with a handful of newly built lodges located on a small plateau.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  9. Day 9 - Trek to Tangnag, 4,350m/14,271ft - 5 hours.

    You begin trekking gradually uphill besides the Hinku Kola on a boulder-strewn path. The scenery changes today, from woodland to scrub and moraine as you climb to in excess of 4,000m/13,000ft. You will undoubtedly feel the altitude today as you ascend. You have superb views of Kyashar, 6,800m/22,309ft, and Kusum Karguru, 6,100m/20,013ft, at the head of the valley. After approximately 5 hours walking, you reach the settlement of Tangnag and its collection of huts and lodges.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  10. Day 10 - Acclimatisation day at Tangnag.

    A return trek to Dig Kharka, 4,660m/15,288ft, provides good acclimatisation. You leave Tangnag and begin trekking along a boulder-strewn path. After about an hour's gradual climb, you begin a gently rising traverse, until you reach a flat piece of ground known as Dig Kharka. The walk takes about two and a half hours to ascend and one and a half hours to descend. You have a good view of your route up towards the base camp and partial views of Mera from Dig Kharka. The scenery today is spectacular as you are encircled amongst snow-capped giants.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  11. Day 11 - Trek from Tangnag to Khare, 5,000m/16,404ft - 5-6 Hours.

    You trek towards the head of the valley, before a steep half hour's climb. The panoramic mountain scenery is magnificent as you continue to ascend more gradually all the way to Khare, 5,000m/16,404ft, at the head of the valley. There are a collection of huts and lodges here and good flat camping ground. You will have spectacular views, and can see your route climbing towards the ridge en route to the Mera La.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  12. Day 12 - Khare acclimatisation day.

    We recommend that you either trek up the ridge behind the campsite for an hour or so, or walk up towards Mera Base Camp. Your trek leader will advise on the possibilities.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  13. Day 13 - Trek up to the glacier and cross glacier to High Camp, 5,800m/19,029ft - 6-7 hours.

    Leaving Khare you walk on a good path up to the glacier where you don crampons and head out onto the glacier. After an initial steep slope the angle eases off and you walk to the Mera La, with spectacular views en route. From here you can see the rocky outcrop which is your High Camp at 5,800m/19,029ft. High Camp gives superb views of Kanchenjunga, Chamlang and Baruntse to the East, Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse to the North and Ama Dablam, Cho Oyo and Kantega to the West.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Camp
  14. Day 14 - Summit day! Climb Mera Peak, 6,476m/21,246ft. Descend and trek to Mera La, 5,400m/16,404ft - 9-10 hours.
    mera peak mera peak summit a warner.

    Today, a very early morning start is required, so you will start your long day by walking in head-torch light. Dressed warmly, you slowly make your way to the summit (5-6 hours) where you will be rewarded for all your efforts with the most stunning panoramic views of 8,000m giants, including Mount Everest. From the summit, you head back down to High Camp for an early lunch and then continue down to the Mera La. Today is a very long day, but extremely satisfying. In the event of inclement weather the 'spare day' (Day 17) will be used here to give a second chance at a summit attempt.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Camp
  15. Day 15 - Trek to Tangnag.

    Re-trace your steps.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  16. Day 16 - Trek to Kote.

    Re-trace your steps.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  17. Day 17 - Rest day / Spare day.

    This 'spare' day may be used for a second summit attempt in the event of unsuitable conditions on Day 14 - Mera Peak summit day.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  18. Day 18 - Trek to Tuli Kharka, 4,300m/14,107ft - 6-7 hours.

    You follow the Hinku Khola downstream for a short while before heading up to the right through rhododendron forest back up to Takthok - home to a solitary tea house. You can either have lunch here or continue upwards on the trail to Lukla for 1½ hours to a couple of huts. You continue weaving your way up the beautiful zigzag forest trail for a couple of hours before the path becomes narrow and precipitous, you then traverse around the hillside for half an hour or so. You eventually arrive at a col marked with a large chorten. An undulating path, on terrain not dissimilar to the Scottish Highlands, brings you to Tuli Kharka - a small hamlet comprising of a couple of tea houses, a few huts and plenty of good camping ground.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  19. Day 19 - Trek back to Lukla over the Zetra La, 4,500m/14,764ft - 7 hours.
    mera peak zetra la pass c rivett.

    Quite a long day today with a lot of descent. You ascend for an hour or so to the first col marked by chortens on a good trail. After this you traverse for about half an hour to the Zetra La pass 4,500m/14,764ft, marked by prayer flags, before a fairly steep descent brings you to a tea shop and a well-earned rest! Descending from the pass can be fairly treacherous when covered with snow if you are ill-prepared. Ensure you are carrying crampons and have an ice-axe if it is snow covered. Leaving the tea shop, you continue to descend for an hour or so through rhododendron forest until you reach your lunch spot. After this you continue through denuded forest and then cultivated farmland to reach Lukla.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Tea House
  20. Day 20 - Fly from Lukla to Kathmandu.

    Another chance to enjoy this great flight, but please note that flights into Lukla are sometimes delayed due to weather conditions either in fog-bound Kathmandu, or windy Lukla; be reassured that our staff in Lukla and in Kathmandu will be doing everything possible to minimise the inconvenience caused if this happens. Your patience in these trying circumstances, which can occur, will be greatly appreciated. Your final day of leisure in Kathmandu does of course provide a valuable 'cushion' against missing your flight should home to the UK should the Lukla flight be delayed. Transfer to hotel.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Shangri La Hotel, Kathmandu
  21. Day 21 - At Leisure in Kathmandu.

    Today will be an opportunity to relax, reflect on your adventures, do some sightseeing and last-minute shopping. Enjoy the medieval atmosphere of Asia's former 'hippie' capital and explore its myriad bazaars and temple complexes. There is a lifetime of sights and sounds to experience in and around Kathmandu. We recommend you visit the temples of Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath and Boudhanath.

    Overnight iconOvernight: Shangri La Hotel, Kathmandu
  22. Day 22 - Fly to London.

    Transfer to the airport for your flight back to London.

More Details

​A visit to Tibet offers an exciting extension to a visit to Nepal or Bhutan. Regular flights to Lhasa from Kathmandu make it possible to visit most of the major sights in and around Lhasa on an 8 day itinerary and a visit to Tibet will provide an exhilarating contrast to your trek or tour in Nepal or Bhutan. Tibet’s high plateau offers totally different and starker scenery to that of the other Himalayan countries. Here you will see some of the most important historical and cultural sites and monasteries of Tibetan Buddhism – the Potala Palace and Samye, Ganden and Drepung Monasteries.

If taking this extension you will need to spend an extra day beforehand in Kathmandu while our agents there process your Tibet visa. They will need your passport for the day for this purpose. You need to let us know in good time if you wish to take this extension as we need to put this process in hand and send your details to the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu well before your departure date.

Bhutan extension from Nepal
  • 5-day cultural tour or 8-day gentle walking options available
  • See the main sights in Paro, Thimphu and Punakha
  • Bhutan is just a short flight from Kathmandu

More Details

Though only a short flight from Kathmandu, Bhutan offers a very different Himalayan experience to Nepal. Characterised by lush valleys, terraced hillsides and soaring peaks the landscape is endlessly picturesque, whilst the imposing dzongs (monastery/fortresses) and Swiss chalet style houses give each town or village a look that is distinctly Bhutanese.
Here are just two options – if you would prefer something different please discuss with this office.

A taste of Bhutan - five-day cultural tour
This five-day tour visits Bhutan’s key sights and cultural centres including magnificent Taksang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest), the beautiful riverside dzong at Punakha and the fascinating treasures housed in the National Museum at Paro. The tour will be led by a knowledgeable Bhutanese guide and accommodation is in comfortable hotels with all meals included.

A short walk in Bhutan - eight-day gentle walking and cultural tour

The Royal Bardia National Park is situated in the west of Nepal. We use Tiger Tops Karnali Lodge, which is acknowledged to be the best lodge in the area. Bardia’s remote geographic location and the fact that the lodge has only 12 rooms, lends a degree of exclusivity to the experience, in comparison to other more popular parks. From the lodge you will be able to participate in safaris and have the chance of seeing some of the country’s wonderful wildlife, for instance, wild elephant, rhinoceros, leopard, deer, wild boar and if you are lucky, the famous Royal Bengal Tiger. There is also the possibility of visiting the villages of the Tharu tribal people that surround the lodge. With its abundant wildlife, relaxing lodge and first class service, our Bardia extension is an experience you will savour!
