You will meet the trekking guides and assistants after breakfast. Along with other trekking participants, you can purchase any necessary trekking supplies and prepare yourself for the trek.
After breakfast, a private vehicle will transport you to the domestic airport in Kathmandu. You can then take a 45-minute flight to Lukla airport. Additionally, Lukla airport is one of the highest airports in the world. On reaching Lukla, we will start the trek and walk for around four hours which will take us to Chutanga.
The Kalo Himal Ridge, which divides the Khumbu from the Hinku Valley, is traversed via the trek route from Chutanga to Tuli Kharka. The trek will be around 6 hours long. During the trek, we might come upon yak herders, the view across the Dudh Kosi, and the magnificent view across the undulating slopes east of the Hinku Valley. Besides, Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are some mountains you will also see during the trek.
On this day, the trek starts from Tuli Kharka to Kothe. We descend a slope paved with rocks to a great vantage point overlooking the Hinku valley, where captivating views of Mera Peak's south face are revealed. The trail winds its way through woodland before dropping abruptly into the Hinku valley. As we enjoy the beauty of nature all around us from the Hinku Valley, the stunning view of Peak 43 and Kusum Kanguru emerges. As we stroll past pine and rhododendron forests, we sense the most unique and lovely emotions. We arrive at Kothe after the 5-hour-long trek and stay there overnight.
We will begin our trek across the pastures after breakfast. The route of the stroll follows Hinku Valley's ridge, many pasture lands with yak herders, and the breathtaking vista of Mera Peak.

We spend the seventh day acclimatizing at Thangnak to get used to the change in higher altitude. On this day will stroll by Sabal Tsho, a lovely moraine-dammed lake that is concealed behind the Sabal Glacier. Similarly, we will also visit Hinku Nup Glacier, which leads in the direction of Kangtaiga.
As we trek to Khare from Tangnang, the trek ascends to a broad grassy basin known as Dig Kharka. We trek for around 3 and a half hours before we reach Khare. After reaching Khare, we will set up a tent near the top of the lake, next to some stones. From there, we will be able to observe the breathtaking views of Mera La, the Hinku Shar Glacier, and the enormous north face of Mera.
After breakfast, we proceed to trek through a rocky path to the Mera Peak Base Camp. On arriving at the base camp, we will take a brief break with our lunch. After that, we begin training for ice climbing with our climbing guide. Climbers with little experience now need to learn a lot more. We travel to Mera La following one to two hours of training. We will go through Mera La on the way to High Camp, where we will stop for the day to relax and take in the breathtaking views. Trek to highcamp from Khare will take around 5 hours.
After eating some high-energy breakfast, at around two in the morning, we trek towards the summit. If we start trek 2 in the morning, we can get up to 6000m by sunrise. On reaching the top eventually, we reach the summit, we can see the majority of the breathtaking views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Cho-Oyu (8,210m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,463m), Kangchenjunga (8,586m) and Nuptse (7,855m). After spending some time at the summit, we return back to the high camp. After that, we will descend to Khare and warm our bodies by having some hot soups or tea.
This day serves as a backup in the event that the preceding day's weather-related plans change. Additionally, this day is utilized as a backup in case we are unable to summit the Mera on day 10th day due to poor weather or other circumstances. There is no guarantee that we will have very nice weather on our planned summit day. Likewise, some members of the group might also experience difficulties acclimatizing during the trek. In such cases, the day can be utilized as well. Similarly, if the weather is extremely bad, it would be advisable to postpone the plan to summit the mountain on for today. We won't require this extra day if the journey goes successfully.
You will begin descending from Khare after breakfast today, losing over 1600 meters of elevation before reaching Kothe.
Following breakfast in Kothe, you will begin trekking and steadily increase your altitude until you reach Thuli Kharka. During the trek, you will experience several ascents and descents.
