Mera Peak & Lobuche Peak Climbing 24 days

Mera Peak: At 6476m, is the highest ‘trekking peak’ suitable for anyone with little or no previous experience of using an ice axe and crampons. The spectacular route is well within the reach of regular mountain walkers with a good level of fitness. Our careful programmer of acclimatization is designed to maximize your chance of comfortably reaching this special summit. During the course of this expedition we are constantly rewarded with fine views of world famous peaks, including the towering Everest and Lhotse. Mera Peak’s notable summit provides one of the most spectacular viewpoints in Nepal. This magical vantage point offers stunning views of five 8000m peaks, Everest and Lhotse to the north, Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east and the majestic Cho Oyu to the west.

Mera Peak & Lobuche Peak Climbing 24 days

Lobuche (also spelled Lobuje) is a Nepalese mountain that lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and the settlement of Lobuche. There are two main peaks, Lobuche East and Lobuche West. A permit to climb the mountain is required from the National Mountaineering Association (NMA) of Nepal, which classifies Lobuche East (6,119m) as a “trekking peak”, and Lobuche West (6,145m) as an “expedition peak”. As the easier, trekking peak, the East peak is climbed far more frequently than the West peak, however, most of those climbers only do so to a false summit a few hours from the true summit of Lobuche East. Between the two peaks is a long deeply notched ridge, however, a steep drop and considerable distance make approaching the West peak from the East impossible. The first recorded ascent of Lobuche East was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on April 25, 1984.Lobuje West was first climbed in 1955 via the South Shoulder.

Arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport. Our Staff member meets you and transfers you to the hotel.
Overnight at Hotel.
Morning wake-up and breakfast in the hotel.
Our guide will meet you in your hotel and brief you about the upcoming trekking. He will guide you through all the formalities and necessary paper-works required for the trekking.
After that, we then do Sightseeing in Kathmandu valley of famous UNESCO world heritage sites like Boudhanath, one of the largest Stupas in the world; Swayambhunath, a famous monkey temple, and Pashupatinath, a sacred Hindu temple complex. Apart from Sightseeing, we also get a TIMS card and permits for our trekking on this day. In the evening, we do initial preparation for the trekking.
Overnight at Hotel.
Today your guide will pick you up from your hotel early mornings for transportation to Salleri by shared jeep transportation. Although Salleri is only 264 km away from Kathmandu, the trip will take us still around 10 hrs. Overnight in Salleri.
After leaving Salleri in the morning we cross the few villages and then gentle uphill, contouring above the houses to the end of the ridge. After passing the Ringmo village, with its abundant fruit orchards. Beyond Ringmo we climb to the Trakshindu La pass ( 3071m ), where we can see the isolated monastery of Trakshindu, a superb example of Sherpa architecture. We now descent through forests of conifer and rhododendron, passing shepherds’ huts and settlement alongside the trail until we reach Nhuntala (6 hrs).
From Nhuntala the descent continues to the Dudh Kosi (‘Milk River’) and crosses this river using a 109 m long suspension bridge ( 1510 m ). Our trek then climbs out of the river valley through fields of barley, wheat, and corn to the sprawling Rai village of Jubing ( 1680 m ). We continue to climb up a ridge to a Sherpa village named Khari Khola ( 2010m ). Beyond this village, we climb past some water-driven mills to Bupsa (6 hrs).
Our trek today starts with a gentle climb, passing the village of Kharte and continues through forests inhabited by monkeys. From this part of the trek, we can admire the views of Cho Oyu (8153m). We keep climbing the ridge till we reach the tea shop on Khari La pass at 2840m. From the pass, the trail descends into the deep canyon of Puiyan Khola. After crossing this river on a wooden bridge we reach the small settlement of Puiyan ( 2770 m ). The trail climbs up and down for about an hour after Puiyan to a ridge that offers a good view of the Khumbu region and then descents 500 m towards Surkha ( 2290 m ). Continuing our trail upwards again, we climb through a jumble of boulders, passing some wonderful Mani walls until we reach the village of Lukla.
A good trail leads through the pasture to the edge of a diminishing forest of rhododendron and pine which clothes the steep hillsides above Lukla. We make steady progress on a good trail, crossing ridges and streams up to ‘kharka’ used for grazing yaks.
From here we get extraordinary views of Mera Peak and Salpa. After ascending and descending on our trail, we enter the Makalu Barun National Park. Our trail from here to Chhatra Khola is called the Pasang Lhamu trail. On the way, if we are lucky, we might even come across the elusive Red Panda. Overnight in Chhatra Khola.
We walk towards the main trail to Mera Peak. After walking on a trail next to the Majang Khola, we merge with another trail that moves alongside the Hinku Khola. Our trail moves straight ahead towards Tashing Ongma which has seasonal tea shops. We continue our trek and cross the bridge over the Sanu Khola before reaching Kothe. Overnight in Kothe.
We trek along the ridge of the Hinku Khola in the shadow of Mera Peak. We take lunch at Gondishung, the summer herders’ settlement on the west bank of the Hinku Drangka. Beyond Gondishung, we pass a 200-year-old Lungsumgba Gompa where we can find Mera Peak scripted in rock along with its route to reach Mera. A short walk takes us to Thaknak, which is a summer grazing area with primitive lodges and shops. Overnight in Thaknak
Another acclimatization day is essential here. It is in a superb setting surrounded by stunning peaks. There is a huge moraine in the north of Tangnag where a beautiful glacial lake, Sabal Tsho is dammed which is definitely worth a visit. A cairn (5,270m/17,290ft) on the flanks of Kusum Kangguru can also be rewarding and beneficial for acclimatization. Our climbing Sherpa provide you training course.
Leaving Thaknak, we follow the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka, which offers spectacular views of Charpate Himal. The trail climbs through moraines to the Hinku Nup and Shar glaciers’ snout and then climbs more steeply to Khare. From here, we can see the northern face of Mera Peak which will be an amazing experience. After lunch, we can hike in and around Khare. Overnight at Khare.
We have a separate day set aside solely for acclimatization and basic training just to prepare ourselves better for the Mera Peak climb. Our climbing leader will help us polish our basic climbing techniques and demonstrate the best ways to use our climbing gears like the ice ax, harness, ascender climbing boots, and crampons. The training will also include learning the best technique to use the rope for climbing up and down. Overnight in Khare.
We walk through a boulder-strewn course on a steep trail to reach the Mera Peak Base Camp. From here, we continue further through the Mera La pass to reach the Mera High Camp. Our path is along a rocky trail, which can be hazardous if it has recently snowed, as there are several crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn. Then set up a high camp while enjoying excellent views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, the south face of Lhotse, Nuptse, Chamlang, and Baruntse. Overnight at Mera High Camp. Includes: Lunch, Dinner, and Tented accommodation
We wake up around 2 in the morning for breakfast. It’s going to be very cold in the beginning but we get warmer as we continue up the glacier and onto a peculiar ridge. The first rays of the sun hit the big peaks in an amazing red glow. The route is still non-technical as we slowly climb higher into the ever-thinning air. The slope steepens for a section behind the ridge and the summit comes back into view. We may attach to a fixed rope at the foot of the final steep summit cone depending on the conditions. The summit is only a few meters away. From the summit, we take in amazing views of the mighty Himalayas including Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho-Oyu (8,210m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m), Kanchenjunga (8,586m), Nuptse (7,855m), Chamlang (7,319m), Baruntse (7,129m) and others. Later, we retrace our steps back to the high camp where we rest for a while before descending to Kongma Dingma. Overnight in Kongma Dingma Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Tented accommodation
We head up into the upper yak pastures of this incredible remote valley. All morning the great flanks of Chamlang dominate our left, and the spire of Baruntse comes into view beyond. The terrain is remarkably benign, especially considering we are actually heading directly into the very epicenter of the highest group of mountains in the world. The valley floor remains broad and straight, only gradually rising to the blind alley of peaks ahead. It is almost a shock to realize that the two majestic mountains we are heading straight towards are none other than Everest and Lhotse. Overnight in camp at Seto Pokhari. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Tented accommodation
This is one of the remotest parts of the Himalayas, so we rarely see any trekkers en route except if it is a very high tourist season. From Seto Pokhari we move ahead and pass through several lakes that occupy the upper Hunku Basin. After walking past Hunku Pokhari, our trail is next to the magnificent Hunku Glacier. We continue further with another lake close by to our trail. Overnight in Amphu Labcha Base Camp. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Tented accommodatio
We cross the Amphu Labcha La pass (5,845m) then walk across the Amphu Labcha Glacier. Lhotse Shar Glacier and Imja Glacier are nearby. Our trail also half circles the Imja Tsho lake before walking on the main Island Peak trail. Moving further ahead, we are also in the vicinity of the Ama Dablam Glacier before reaching Chhukung. Overnight in Chhukung. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Tented accommodation
A classic hiking day of the Khumbu. Ama Dablam still rises above us and we watch its shape change as we walk up the valley and see it from a different perspective. We reach Dingboche for lunchtime. After lunch, we take a rest for the whole day. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Tented accommodation
Today we walk up onto the Khumbu Glacier! The lateral moraine of this famous glacier is visible as we walk out of Pheriche. Distances are short now, but each step is measured and deliberate as we move higher in the thin air. We take a break for tea and a trekking-style lunch at Lukla. In the early afternoon, we climb the moraine past the Chorten that have been constructed for Sherpas lost in expeditions over the years. Cholatse Peak and Lobuche Peak loom above. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation
On this day, we will make our way to reach the High Camp that lies at 5400m higher than the Lobuche Base Camp (4,950m). Our path is not a very far-reaching one but has quite a few testing tracks. From here the snap of the enormous and snowy peaks proffer you overwhelming sense. We lay our camp here for overnight. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Tented accommodation
We will have our breakfast at around 2 am and start ascending to the summit of Lobuche East Peak since we need to reach there before noon as in the daylight the sturdy winds in the elevated lands may turn into an obstacle for reaching the summit. This is the important day that offers a chance to see more panoramic scenes of peaks like- Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Cholatse, and many others. We use up some time at the pinnacle taking good pictures, after that, we return to the High Camp for an overnight stay. Includes: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Tented accommodation
On a long day, we return to Pangboche for showers, a great meal, and a good night’s sleep in a bed. Includes: Breakfast ,Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation
We begin our descent to Namche Bazaar after breakfast. We reach a sparse settlement of Bibre and cross a bridge over the Imja Khola. Our trail passes through beautiful villages, grasslands and crosses several bridges before reaching Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar. Includes: Breakfast ,Lunch ,Dinner ,Accommodation
We walk on the Shore of the Dudhkoshi River through the valley trail. We hike downhill and uphill to the end of Everest Base Camp. This is our last day of trekking as we return to Lukla where the trek began. We enjoy this time to reflect on the trek as a group and the personal achievement of all those who took part. The afternoon is free, so you can wander about, relax and enjoy the surroundings.
Overnight at Guesthouse.
We wake up early in the morning and head towards Lukla airport. We will then fly back to Kathmandu (1400 m) and transfer to the hotel. We have reserved this day for you to gain back your strength and buy some gifts for your loved ones back home. On this day, you can walk around the city and do little shopping or just relax at your hotel.
Overnight at Hotel.
After breakfast, a staff member will pick you up from the hotel and transfers you to the airport for the final departure. We wish you a pleasant and safe flight back home and hope to see you soon again. We hope you enjoyed your Everest base camp trek with us.
