Day 04:Trekking to Chutanga (3,430m/11,250ft), 3-4 hrs.
After breakfast today, as our first day trek is an easy walk which leads eastwards, the path from here is less frequented than the other main trails from Lukla, walk follows through a number of hamlets and wood yards until we reach a thick forest of silver fir, birch, pines and rhododendron trees and bushes on the hill side below Nau Lekh also known as Kalo Himal Ridge, on this portion follow the Sherpa or the group as there are many paths leading away from the main trail. There are many small streams with numerous places to camp, Our first campsite in the wilderness is pitched on the meadows with time for a few walk around and overnight at tented camp.

Day 05: Trekking to Chhatre Danda (4,000m/13,160ft), 5-6 hrs.
Our adventure begins with a steep climb to cross the black mount Ridge in the Nau Lekh range which separates the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley. A steep uphill climb from our camp brings us to a cairned notch in the ridge with a collection of Buddhist prayer flags at 4,450m. This small pass is called the Zatrwa Og, from here the path traverses across a boulder slope, round a corner and climbs once again to the Zatrwa-La at 4,600 m. In bad weather to find the path of our route can be quite misleading care should be taken but with fine weather, the view across the Dudh Kosi river towards Karyolung and the Lumding mountain are very impressive, and the scenery across the rolling foothills of the Hinku Valley. Few hour descends will bring us to a large boulder which will be our campsite for the overnight at Tuli Kharka.

Day 06: Trekking to Mausum Kharka (3,430m/11,250ft), 3-4 hrs.
From Tuli Kharka, will be a short trek on the downhill slope, the path descends with superb scenery of Peak 43 and Kusum Kanguru and then coming to a fine vantage point of the Hinku valley, with grand views of the South face of Mera Peak entering the forest once again, the trail drops steeply into the Hinku valley. We make our camp on the clearing known as Mausum Kharka by the Hinku Drangka River and overnight at tented camp.

Day 07: Trekking to Thagnag (4,360m/14,301ft), 5-6 hrs.
From Mausum Kharka, our route follows the west bank of the Hinku Drangka northwards, eventually leaving the forest, the valley widens and opens, coming to a pasture and small kharkas (barn and a shade of the shepherds) used for grazing goats, sheep, and yaks, then our path leads to a small bridge to reach at Gondishung at 4,350m, a summer settlement of Tagnag with its huts and stone walled enclosures. Gondishung itself has a fascinating 200-year-old gompa (monastery) beneath a great rock overhang, is a small Gompa with a Buddha and several Budd Sta Va, prayer flags and a number of crude mani walls. Trek continues for another hour passing beyond Lungsamba as the valley narrows between the flanks of Kusum Kangguru 6,369m to the west and the truncated far western peak of Mera 6,255m then finishing our today’s walk here at Tagnag. Here we will have three nights camping on this beautiful surrounding.

Day 08: Rest or Acclimatization Day.
A well worth Rest day for acclimatization and local hike in this wonderful setting, surrounded by stunning peaks, especially Peak 43 which rises to 6,769m altitude. Just north of the camp there is a huge moraine behind which is dammed a beautiful glacial lake known as the Sabai Tsho, into which plummets the hanging Sabai Glacier well worth exploring with time spent will help you to acclimatize well.The full day you may take rest or activities ask your Guide.

Day 09: Trekking to Khare (5,000m/16,400ft), 4-5 hrs.
Today’s destination is a short day walk of 4 to 5 hours but we will take it slowly acclimatizing and enjoying the surrounding scenery. Our route follows a relatively good trail leading up across the moraine which dams the Charpatti lake and then reaching a high point lined with cairns overlooking the glacial lake after more than half hour climb. From here the path descends slightly before touring the ridge and crossing a sandy bowl to the steep stream that descends from Dig Kharka, as we proceed on the right bank until after 40 minutes we reach the large pasture of Dig Kharka. The walk leads to a steep climb for few minutes, passing a large bivouac stone and then contouring around the hillside reaching the stream once again. We re-cross the stream at obvious spots on large boulders. Following a trail for more than an hour across the boulder-strewn hillside, we reach Khare. O/N.

Day 10: Rest Day or Ice Climbing.
Today you can take the full day rest or ice climbing as you like. You may ask your Guide, we can give you Ice climbing training (dependable with an availability of the snow). Besides this, there are some interesting hikes from Khare; above the camp, it is possible to climb 5,550m on a high moraine ridge for more good views of the Mera La and the route up the mountain. Overnight here.

Day 11: Trekking to Mera High Camp (5,800m/19,024ft), 5-6 hrs.
As our continuing journeys and our route advances towards south climbing the moraine and following the crest to the foot of the black, steep screed slope, the path zig zags its way up to the top, as we look across a boulder strewn bowl to the lower tongue of the Mera Glacier after 2 hours hard walk from Khare. The route crosses the bowl and then climbs the ground to the right of the tongue to a large rock platform beside the glacier after another hour of careful walk. The trail are well marked,(unless there has been recent snowfall) the path weaves its way around and between the crevasses toward the Mera-la, from here it’s another hour to reach the pass, on reaching Mera-la after 3 to 4 hours of morning walk, continue  another 3 hours to our overnight high camp beneath Mera Peak.

Day 12: Climbing of Mera (6,476m/21,247ft)Back to Khare.After our wonderful breakfast, we are ready, for the summit to Mera. From the high camp, the summit bid will be made early in the morning (from 2am to 5am), and take around 4 to 6 hours to make the summit. Whilst the distance doesn’t look far, we can assure you it will be hard work, and all the preparations and a positive, tempered attitude will pay off here. It is usually necessary to rope up for much of the summit approach due to crevasse hazards along the route. The route can vary depending on the conditions of the season but usually skirts around a major shoulder in front of us to the back side of the mountain and then traverse in a fairly straightforward approach to the summit knob. As the light comes, we enjoy incredible views across to Mt. Baruntse (7129m), Mt. Chamlang (7319m) and Nau Lekh (6360m) with Mount Makalu (8481m) looming behind. Further to our left is Mount Everest, peaking over several unnamed peaks of the Hinku. To the south we can see for miles down to the terrain. We aim to make the summit early/mid-morning and return to Khare after summit. The exact schedule will depend on many factors, including the weather, condition of the route and condition of the members. Our contingency of equipment and experienced staff and a time buffer, gives us a fair amount of flexibility to achieve success for all who have worked hard and consistently from the beginning of the expedition. The day will be long, and this is where all the training beforehand, the trek approach, and the right attitude will combine to give you stamina and confidence to be part of a sound team, with optimum chances for the summit. O/N Khare.

Day 13: A spare Summit attempt Day.
One extra day we use to keep as a spare day, set aside in case we have to postpone the attempt on the peak because of bad weather or because some of the group have not yet acclimatized well enough to make the ascent. If everything went smooth and you succeed to climb at the summit day you can use this day for another Ice climbing day or spent one more night at the village on the way back to Lukla.

Day 14: Back to Gothey (3600m/11,812ft).
After a great success of the expedition to Mera peak climbing, we descending through the Hinku valley to arrive Gothey for our overnight stop. All the way enjoying the panoramic views of the Himalayan valley and different mountains we reach at Gothey for overnight and evening relaxing with whatever you want at the camp.
