Mera peak climbing is gradually becoming popular among trekkers and novice climbers to have the feeling of hiking and climbing on snow and experiencing trekking in remote part of Khumbu region. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. Besides the charming of climbing Mera Peak , the trek to its base camp from Lukla is rewarding for experiencing little-visited and yet un-spoilt region of Nepal with densely forested hill sides. Mera Peak trek and climbing servers a gate way for high altitude trekking to go over Amphulaptcha Pass or Mingbo La and also for climbing on Baruntse, Chamlang and other Himalayas climbing.

Route to Mera Peak
Mera Peak's Climbing with Himalayan Social Journey goes as long as 18 astounding days. This trip begins by leaving Kathmandu for Lukla. We will show up at Lukla following 35 minutes of beautiful air travel from Kathmandu. Not long after showing up in Lukla, you will travel up to Chhuthang on the primary day of the visit.
At that point you will leave for Thuli Kharka(4600m) through Zatrawala Pass. After a short-term remain in the Thuli Kharka, your trip runs towards Kothe. From Kothe, you will leave at early morning to reach Thangnak(4326m). Subsequent to making up to Thangnak and going through a night there, your next stop will be Khare.
The place where there is Khare gives the brief looks at destined to be climbed, Mera Peak. You will reach Khare for stay for overnight, yet there will be one more day in the Khare for acclimatization. This implies you will spend two evenings in Khare before heading for Mera Base Camp(5300m). Your Himalayan path has begun from the base camp of Mera pinnacle, and it will move to Mera High Camp (5,700m) and afterward to the head of Mera Peak(6,476m).
After the fruitful culmination of Mera top, you will get back to the Khare for the night on the very day. The same route we followed from Lukla will be followed back for Lukla. On this stretch, you will cross Khare, Kothe, Thuli Kharka, and Lukla in a few days. Your last night in the Khumbu district will be at Lukla only one-night before the Kathmandu flight.

Trek to Khare from Thangnak
With every passing day, every step we walk, we are reaching closer to our ultimate destination. Khare 5000m brings Mera Peak closer to us. It's however a tough day for trekking because the steep moraine tracks must be walked. Through Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka, the Moraine way is right on the Charpate Himal. In this trail, the nose of Hinku Nap and Shar glaciers should be as close as they are. Look closely at the route and walk; the direction of the glacier is the hardest. After 3-4 hours uphill trek you will reach Khare and spend your good night there.
