Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal 2012 & 2013 in Spring & Autumn

Mera Peak Climbing in Nepal 2012 & 2013 in Spring & Autumn: It is one of the highest peaks in Nepal Himalaya which is located in south of Everest & was first scaled in 20th May 1953 by J.O.M. Roberts and Sen Tenjing.

It 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. Physically fit and have an extrovert sense of adventure to be need to ascend Mera Peak .

The ascent of Mera is generally technically straightforward that requires little more than crampons and ice axe. We will fix ropes where necessary and our Guides and Sherpas will assist you as much as possible. After a mountain flight from Katmandu, our trek will begin by heading southeast from Lukla. We will walk along a high, rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us into the remote and largely uninhabited Honku Valley. Trekking and Camping in this wild land of Himalayan pine forests is indeed an impressive experience.

We will proceed to Khare (5,099m) and set up camp. Our ascent will follow the glacier that leads to Mera la (5,415m) and on to high camp where we will prepare for our early morning summit. From high camp, we can take in a sweeping view of Kanchanjangha, Chamlang, Makalu to the east, Everest and Lhotse to the north and Amadablam and Cho-Oyu to the west. This view is undoubtedly one of the most stunning in all of Nepal. With good conditions, we will summit Mera Peak the following morning. As we make our way back down the valley to Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu, you will have completed a demanding trek to achieve the summit of one of the more beautiful mountains in Nepal.

    Early morning after breakfast, we get transferred to domestic airport to fly to Lukla. After an adventurous 40-minute flight above breathtaking green and white mountains, we reach Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. This is one of the most beautiful air routes in the world culminating in a dramatic landing on a hillside surrounded by high mountains peaks. At the airport, we meet our other crew members. We get time to stroll around while the guide divides and manages baggage to be carried by porters. We start our trek down from Lukla. It will make sense to fly up to Lukla for acclimatization and walk down. We walk through the jungle down to Surke then a bit ahead we have lunch at Pakhapani or ahead nearby. Continuing ahead through many traditional villages, jungles, and hills, we gradually reach the vicinity of Paiya for the first night's camp. We see number of peaks from here such as Knogde Ri, Khatang, Tang Ragi Tu and other peaks above 7 thousand meters from Paiya. Overnight at Paiya. Included meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner (B,L,D)

    DAY 04: Paiya to Pangkongama[2850m/93,48ft]: 5-6 hrs
    After breakfast, we march a little down until we reach wooden bridge and then carefully we have to go ahead through the slippery trail to cross Kari La Hill (pass). We have our lunch in the village ahead and start up walking through the rhododendron and bamboo forests through the narrow mountain trail. Our cameras are ready with full charge to catch the outstanding views of Dudhkoshi River valley and Dudh Kund Himal before reaching the farming and trading village of Pangkongama for night’s rest. (B,L,D)

    DAY 05: Pangkoma to Nigmsa(Shibuche) –[2745m/90,003ft]: 4-5 hrs
    The trail descends the rock-strewn path leading to the rhododendron forest. We come across a lot of Mani walls through the trail. Passing again through hills, ridges, and teahouses we start downwards and have lunch around there in village nearby. Mesmerizing views of the south face of Mera Peak (6064m/19890) and Naulekh Peak awaiting our insight ahead. The trail zigzags through forested areas and then descends steeply. We experience the most interesting and charming feelings as we walk past forests of pine and rhododendron to reach Nigmsa (Shibuche) where we camp for the night's rest. (B,L,D)

    DAY 06: Nigmsa (Shibuche) to Chhatra Khola [3150m/10332ft]: 7-8 hours
    After breakfast, we start up though a steep and slope trail through narrow and typical mountain trail, a bit complicated ahead through rhododendron and bamboo forests, we pass in the course of landslides and down we reach to the stream. By the side of the crystal clear stream we have our lunch today. Straight ahead and up through the rhododendron forests we may encounter wild animals if we are lucky. A little down through the bamboo jungle and past a nice stone cave by the side of a river, we will camp for the night's rest. Overnight at Chhatra Khola. (B,L,D)

    DAY 07: Chhatra Khola to Kothe [3600m/11808ft]: 6-7 hrs
    Chirping birds wake us up early in the morning. We start after breakfast and reach a fine vantage point of the Hinku Valley where we line around in the splendor of nature surrounding us. Straight through the bamboo and pine forest in the narrow trails while enjoying the views of Mera and the Hinku Valley, there is possibility of encountering with mountain wild animals like sloth bear, jungle cat, etc., among the tall pine trees. Past Tashing Dingma we find shops and teahouses where we have lunch. We continue ahead by the ridge of the river in the Hinku valley all the way up and reach Kothe where we will have the night's rest in a camp. Overnight in Kothe. (B,L,D)

    DAY 08: Kothe to Tangnang – [4,350m/14,270ft]: 3-4 hrs
    Today is another short-trek day in which we trek along the ridge of the Hinku Khola in the shadow of Mera Peak. We take lunch at Gondishung, the summer herders' settlement in 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. We will pray for our successful ascent of Mera Peak in the boulder of the Gompa offering incense. A short walk takes us to Thagnag, which is a summer grazing area with the primitive lodges and shops. Overnight in Thagnag at the camp. (B,L,D)

    DAY 09 Acclimatization day in Tangnang
    Acclimatization day in Tangnang Today is our rest day. It is not recommend to stay idle although it is a rest day instead we have to stay active to be ready for next day's adventure. So after breakfast, we hike for about 3 hours up to Charpate Himal Glacier. Seen very close from the Thangnag, Charpate Himal is regarded holy by the Sherpa community and is worshiped by traditional Sherpas of the mountains. We will observe Mera North very close and outstanding from here. After an hour's pleasant hike downwards, we will be back at the camp at Thangnang. (B,L,D)

    DAY 10: Tangnang to Khare [5,045m/16,486ft]: 2-3 hrs
    We follow the lateral moraine of Dig Glacier to Dig Kharka, which offers spectacular views of Charpate Himal. The trail climbs through moraines and to the snout of the Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers and then climbs more steeply to our camping spot at Khare. The camping experience at Khare is something that would cherish us throughout our life. It is pleasure to view beautiful North face of Mera Peak from our campsite at Khare. Overnight at Khare. (B,L,D)

    DAY 11: Khare to Mera Base Camp [5300m/17,384ft]: 3-4 hrs
    Today after breakfast, we walk through boulder –strewn course to reach Base Camp of Mera Peak. We have to march through steep route (about 260 meters) and it takes around 3-4 hours to reach Base Camp. Upon reaching there after a short rest accompanied with our lunch, we start ice climbing training with our climbing guide. Inexperienced climbers need to learn much more today. After about 2-3 hours’ training, we might choose to go to Mera La. However, as we will be taking the route to High Camp through Mera La the next day, we might opt to rest at our camp at Base camp today admiring the eye-catching views the area offers. (B,L,D)

    DAY 12: Khare to High camp [5,780m/18,958ft]: 4-5 hrs
    We need to walk through rock-strewn area for about two hours to make our way to Mera High Camp. The trail can be hazardous if it has recently snowed as there are a number of crevasses here. We make our way to the top of the rock band, which is marked by a large cairn. We set up a high camp and from here the sunrise and sunset can be view along with the Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and south face of Lotshe, Nuptse, Chamlang and Baruntse are outstanding and seems like they are piercing the skyline. This evening we overnight in Mera High Camp. (B,L,D)

    DAY 13: Mera High camp to Mera Peak Summit [6,461m/21,190ft] to Kongma Dingma [4850m/15912ft]: 9-10 hrs
    This is really a big day. The crew wakes up around 1 a.m. for preparation. The climbers also wake up around 2.30 am and have very early breakfast. The group puts on crampons and rope and set up for special journey to the summit. If we are a well-acclimatized group, it takes around 4-6 hours to reach the summit of Mera central for. From the summit, can be seen the spectacular views of Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,021ft), Cho-Oyu (8,210m/26,928ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,935ft), Makalu (8,463m/27,760ft), Kangchenjunga (8,586m/28,165ft), Nuptse (7,855m/25,765ft), Chamlang (7,319m/24,010ft), Baruntse (7 ,129m 23,383ft) Ama Dablam (6,812m/22,343ft) Kangtega (6,779m/22,235) and many peaks over six thousanders too. After achieving the summit, we retrace our steps down to high camp. After having a rest accompanied by some hot soups/tea at the high camp, we will continue down to Kongma Dingma for the night's rest. We will find this day really long but inspirational one in our life! Overnight at Khare. (B,L,D)

    DAY 14: Reserve Day for Contingency
    TThere is no such guarantee that we can get quite a favorable weather on our planned day for the summit (day 13), so this day is used as a contingency in case if we are unable to summit the Mera on day 13 due to bad weather condition or some other reasons. If weather became exceptionally unfavorable we wisely have to postpone the program of summiting the peak on day 13 for toady (Day 14). Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems in acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day. (B,L,D)

    DAY 15: Kongma Dingma to Seto Pokhara via Honku Valley [5035m/16519ft]: 5-6 hrs
    We head up into the upper yak pastures of this incredible remote valley. All morning the great flanks of Chamlang dominate on 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. (B,L,D)

    DAY 16: Seto Pokhari to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(South) [5650m/18536 ft]: 5-6 hrs
    We trek through the high altitude route from Seto Pokhari to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp. This is one of the remotest parts of the Himalayas. We rarely meet any trekkers en route except if it is very high touristic season. We climb steadily up to and just beyond Seto Pokhari (White Lake), the first of a series of lakes that occupy the upper Honku Basin. Experience the wilderness of the Honku Valley. On the right is Chamlang (7321m) with hanging glaciers on its South-West and North-West faces, the Honku Valley is true mountain wilderness. Overnight in Amphu Lapcha Base Camp. (B,L,D)

    DAY 17: Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(South) to Amphu Lapcha Base Camp(North) [5300m/17385 ft]: 6-7 hrs
    Starting from the South base of Amphu Lapcha, today is an early morning climb. The climb involves steep sections on rock and ice. It’s better to tackle the pass early in the morning when the snow is stable, i.e., before sunlight melts the snow. We use climbing ropes wherever necessary. The last sections of the climb to Amphu Lapcha winds up through snow shelves. On the other side, a steep descent awaits to be endeavored on fixed lines leading down to the moraine. Reaching at the Amphu Lapcha North Base Camp, we camp and spend the night there. (B,L,D)

    DAY 18: Amphu Lapcha Base Camp to Pangboche [3930m/12893 ft]: 5-6 hrs
    We walk downhill along the moraine to arrive at Chukkung, the starting point for the Island Peak. The wilderness of the remote Hinku Valley now introduces us to the civilization of Khumbu Region. The Imja Khola joins the Dudh Koshi river a little above the Pangboche Village. There is a famous monastery at Pangboche believed to have been the oldest in the Khumbu region. To reach Pangboche after a few long days of hard mountaineering and trekking is a delight. Spending night in the comfort of the lodges in this occupied village is a warm welcome which we feel, is well deserved. (B,L,D)

    DAY 19: Pangboche to Namche Bazaar [3440m/11286 ft]: 5-6 hrs
    Descending out of the alpine desert and back into greenery of pine forests is what our eyes love today. The path leads to a steep uphill climb into Tengboche. After making a brief visit to the Tengboche Monastery, we make a steep descent and the trial leads us back along the Dudh Kosi river. We keep a lookout for wild life such as mountain goats, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc., while we pass through the forest by the trail. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar where we want to take a long last look back to Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche. The final steep climb traverses the hill side taking us to Namche Bazaar. We take a nice hot shower and have very relaxed sleep in our room in Namche Bazaar. Overnight in Namche Bazaar. (B,L,D)

    DAY 20: Namche Bazaar to Lukla: 6-7 hrs
    The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in-distance snow covered peaks. We walk through the Sherpa villages' noticing impressive faith in Buddhism and culture of prayer stones and prayers flag while we walk through the villages. On arrival in Lukla, we stretch those sore legs and recall the experiences of the last couple of weeks. We experience the culmination of a fantastic trek on a happy note with everyone back safe and sound with smile on their faces! Overnight in Lukla. (B, L, D)

    DAY 21: Fly back to Kathmandu
    We fly back to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. The early morning flight drops us at Kathmandu. You can rest and relax throughout the day in your hotel. If get interested to take some gifts home from Nepal for friends and relatives, visit to some nearby shops or venture out in Thamel for typical Nepalese goods which can be assisted by our guides or you can do it yourself too. If you want to explore any other areas of Kathmandu take the time to do that today! Remember, we will be hosting a fantastic celebration dinner together in occasion of successfully completing your Mera Peak Climbing trip! Overnight in Kathmandu. (B, D)

    Experience Required

    To join the Everest team you will need to have extensive mountaineering experience. This should include previous high altitude experience of at least 6,000 metres, mixed with a multitude of Alpine mountaineering and, preferably, you will have taken part in a previous 8,000-metre expedition.
    We have found that those who have been to an 8,000-metre peak previously have a considerably better chance of getting to the top of Everest. We would strongly advise you to climb one of the other 8,000 metre peaks before going to Everest, as this is the best way of ensuring the money you spend on Everest will be rewarded by a successful ascent and a safe return home. Exceptionally, however, climbers who have not had the chance of climbing an 8,000 metre peak may consider Everest if they have a compensating depth of experience, that might include many alternative expeditions such as Huascaran, Illimani, Denali, or Muztag Ata. We do not consider an ascent of Aconcagua, by itself, to be suitable preparation for Everest and would not accept a booking on this basis.
    Although fixed ropes will be used where appropriate, expedition members must have the ability to climb Alpine routes graded AD, or equivalent. All team members must be competent mountaineers and self-sufficient with the ability to move between and to live in high mountain camps un-aided or supervised.
    In the extreme, we will be looking for some assurance that climbers would be able to survive being storm-bound in a tent at 8,000 metres for as long as 5 days, without significant detriment to their health and well-being such that at the end of such a storm, they return safely.
    We are professionally-led teams of competent mountaineers who each have enough experience to climb the world's highest mountain, under the supervision and leadership of an accomplished and experienced high-altitude leader.
    Our Everest expeditions are not "guided" because this is not a realistic proposition in the high-altitude realm of 8,000 metres and above. "Guiding" and being "guided" implies the intimate supervision and care of a "client" by a "Guide" who can be responsible for the direct and immediate control of safety, as is normally and traditionally practised in the Alps. On Everest, such a direct duty-of-care, implicit in the traditional guide-client relationship, is not possible. Instead, We accepts team members that, with a combination of their past experience, balanced with a strong team around them and highly experienced leaders, are empowered to reach the top of the world. This ensures you have the support that you need dependent on your own abilities. You can leverage your current experience and how you feel on the mountain, with the independence to move between camps and optimise your schedule on a day-by-day basis. And when you need additional support and advice, Leaders and Sherpas are there to assist and advise you on your ascent.

     

    Medical Cover
    All of our leaders are trained in first-aid and have a good knowledge of high altitude medical problems. The expedition will be equipped with the following:

    • A well stocked first aid and medical kit sufficient to counter any possible mountaineering ailments, from headache to serious injury.
    • Oxygen equipment for medical use only.
    • A portable hyperbaric chamber (Gamow bag)
    • Emergency communications on the mountain and satellite communications link for helicopter evacuation (see below).  

    We will also enrol all team members into the medical facility provided by the Himalayan Rescue Association. This has featured in the BBC documentary, "Everest ER". It is staffed by doctors (Usually Brits or Americans), and by enrolling all team members for a fee (paid by us), we ensure free access to the doctors for all of our Sherpas.

    Insurance

    Our tour prices do not include insurance however it is a condition of joining our tours that travelers are fully insured for any medical expenses they might incur while traveling. At the start of your tour the Tour Leader will ask to see your insurance document and will note down the policy number and emergency contact number.
    We recommended a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers repatriation and evacuation in case of a medical emergency, cancellation and curtailment as well as baggage and valuables, If your tour involves certain adventurous activates (I.e. trekking, white water rafting or scuba diving etc) You will need to make sure your policy specifically covers these activates. You may also need specific cover for expensive camera equipment.

    Many credit card companies offer “complementary travel insurance” however the majority of such policies offer virtually no cover and will not be accepted as adequate travel insurance. If you are planning on using credit card insurance you must bring along proof that the policy covers medical emergencies. Failure to be able to provide such proof to the Tour Leader will result in you being compelled to purchase a new approved policy before you can join the tour.



    Vaccinations

    It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain any vaccinations, Precautionary or preventative Medicines for the countries you are visiting – or any which may be required by your home country upon your return. To find out which, if any, Vaccinations are mandatory or recommended for your destination Contact your local doctor, Immunization Centre or Medical Centre for up-to-date information.

    If you need to arrange vaccinations or a supply of preventative medicine (e.g. Malaria tablets), you should Contact your doctor at least two Months before you depart. Some Inoculations require more than one Visit and can take several weeks to Administer.

    CARRY YOUR CERTIFICATE
    You should be issued with an International Certificate of Vaccination for each vaccination. Always carry these with you on your travels; they could provide essential information for doctors in the event that you fall ill whilst traveling.


    Malaria
    Malaria is common in many parts of Africa, Asia and South America. Protection is in the form of tablets, taken either daily or weekly, or both. The course of tablets should normally begin 1-2 weeks before you depart, Continue throughout your travels and for 4 weeks after your return. Although you can obtain tablets from most pharmacies without prescription,
    you must check that they are Appropriate for the area you are Visiting. There are many different Strains of malaria and a large number of them are drug-resistant. It may be Necessary for you to take a Combination of tablets for the region you are visiting.
    No malaria tablets guarantee complete protection. The most Effective protection against malaria is to avoid being bitten. Mosquitoes Mostly bite at dusk and dawn so one of the best ways to minimize the Chance of being bitten is to wear long Trousers, long sleeves and socks at these times. You should take a good insect repellent and apply it liberally. Repellents with a high concentration of DEET (at least 35%) are generally considered the most effective.

    Diarrhoea

    Sampling the local food and drink is often one of the highlights of traveling. In most cases the food is Freshly prepared for you and is completely safe to eat, however it will probably contain ingredients that you are not familiar with or may be Prepared in a different way. This change in diet is one of the most common causes of travelers diarrhea. You can reduce the likelihood of suffering diarrhea if you treat food and drink with caution – at least in the early stages of your travels. In almost every country it is possible to buy bottled water. This is usually very cheap and a lot more convenient than trying to purify or filter tap water. Beware of ice in drinks and make sure you wash your hands frequenty.
    In general we do not recommend the use of anti-diarrhea pills as in most Cases they do not cure the problem, they merely put it on hold. However, there are of course situations where ‘Blocking up’ may be desirable, for Instance if you are embarking on a long bus ride. Diarrhoea which lasts for longer than 48-72 hours, shows signs of blood or Mucus or which is concurrent with other symptoms, such as a headache or high temperature, should always be taken seriously. Seek medical advice
    (your Tour Leader can assist you with this).

    Dehydration

    In deserts, in the tropics and at high Altitude, your body can lose a lot of water. Dehydration also occurs when you are suffering from diarrhoea. The best way to avoid dehydration is to drink plenty of fluids. In most countries you can obtain “rehydration salts” or “electrolyte Solution”. Although these do not taste great, they restore the salts lost by your body. You can also make your own rehydration mixture by adding 4 tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon of salt to one liter of clean water.

    Trekkers should be aware that there is very little in the way of rescue organization for handling trekker's emergencies in Nepal. If you are trekking with a reputable trekking agency then their staff will be trained to handle most contingencies. if you are traveling independently then you will have to rely on your own initiative to handle any problems. This is why trekking alone is foolhardy in the extreme.

    At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails.

    At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails. All trekkers should make sure that they are covered by a suitable travel insurance policy. This, at least, must cover the cost of a helicopter rescue, which is the only practical way of evacuating a seriously ill or injured patient from most of the trekking areas. It is essential to leave details of this policy with a responsible agency in Kathmandu. Either your trekking agency or your embassies are the obvious choices. Registering your details and intended plans with your embassy in Kathmandu is an extremely sensible step to take.

    In the event that you do have a problem, and that problem cannot be solved with the resources at hand, then communications facilities must be located. Telephones or radios can be hard to find and may be a day or more away from the incident site. If it is possible to send a reliable person for help make sure that a note is sent detailing the location of the patient, the problem being experienced, specifying what help is needed. List what actions you are going to take in the interim. Fortunately, these days, helicopters are readily available, at a price, from Kathmandu and Pokhara. If a message can be sent then it is likely that a rescue can be mounted reasonably quickly.
