Remark: Both climbers and non-climbers are welcome to join the trip to Mera Peak. Climbers can choose to attempt to summit the peak, while others rest at the base camp.

Our journey begins with a short flight to Tumlingtar Airport. From here we descend to Arun River which runs through a green valley rich in bird life and a few farms. As we approach Hunku Valley and Mera peak, these first few days provide a fascinating contrast to the high mountain landscape. This is off the beaten track experience. We pass through thick rhododendron and bamboo forest that separates the Hongu and Hongku valleys. On the trail to Panch Pokhari, you will come across beautiful Sherpa villages and Kirong La Monastery.

From Panch Pokhari, we descend to Honku River. We then leave the villages behind to trek through forests, lakes, alpine landscapes with towering peaks above and deep lush valleys below. The views along this section are superb. Towards the east, we can see the Kanchanjunga and Jannu Himalayan peaks; to the north, the views of Hongu and Hongku dominate. The trail continues to Thangnang (4366m) from here we move to Khare (5108m), where we establish the base camp at the foot of the glacier leading to Mera La (17,761ft). Here we have a number of days to rest, explore and acclimatize. Our return will take us south, down to the Hunku Drangka before turning west to cross the Zetrawa La to Lukla Airport from where we will take a flight back to Kathmandu.
