Overview

Thrill of reaching the summit of Mera peak, standing over 6,461m-the high, challenging and classic Himalayan trekking peak in Nepal with technically straightforward, is an immensely rewarding achievement with unparalleled scenically magnificent panoramic views of the five world’s 8,000m highest mountains- Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho-Oyu and many other peaks.

Mera Peak is the highest permitted trekking peak of Nepal dominated by Mt. Everest. J.O.M Roberts and Sen Tenzing first successfully ascended Mera Peak on May of 1953.  An ascent to top of Mera is not an easy required crossing very high and difficult passes. Moreover, adding on this peak with Amphu Laptsa Pass makes a trip of the most impressive, more exciting, physically demanding and highly rewarding lifetime experience. As nontechnical peak, Mera peak is for those first time as well as experienced with fit trekkers who dare as well as desire to dream of standing on a Himalayan summit to glory the success for unforgettable once in a lifetime experience.

After the short exciting scenic mountain flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla, initial start of trek begins to walk less trodden trails through beautiful forested hillsides remote sections of the Hinku valley of Pangkongma and Panch Pokhari on the way to base camp with proper gradual acclimatization. Taking part in our climbing training course relating to various aspects of climbing techniques and skills, glacier travel, rope fixing, ascending and descending before the summit push to ensure all of our climbers have necessary climbing skills and confidence to scale the summit successfully.

We setup Mera La base camp at 5415m, moreover, for Mera Peak climbing shorter and completely enjoyable, we establish the high camp at 5800m that offers breathing panoramic view of the best of its kind. The summit day starts early in the morning, the view seen from the summit of Mera Peak probably remains unrevealed with an amazing grandest surrounding majestic highest mountains Kanchanjunga and Makalu to the east, Everest appears over the massive southern aspect of Nuptse and Lhotse to the north- undoubtly one of the most glorious views in the entire Nepal. Then, the crossing of the challenging Amphu Laptsa Pass to stand at the highest part of the Khumbu region of Everest-the moment always refreshed in mind. Trip returns via Namche Bazaar the heartland of Sherpa, the bustling bazaar and main gateway to expedition, and complete at Lukla after flight to Kathmandu.

This classic route to exceptional high altitude Mera Peak climbing with Amphu Laptsa Pass is prepared to offer the most wonderful extremely varied mountain adventure life changing experience in Nepal Himalayas.

The going is relatively straight forward as we make our way up the Mera glacier and set a slow, steady pace. The route is still non-technical as we climb slowly but surely higher into the ever-thinning air. From the high camp the summit bid will be made early in the morning, and take around 4 to 6 hours to get to the summit. The first rays of the sun hit the big peaks in an amazing red glow. At the foot of the final steep summit cone, we may attach to a fixed rope depending on conditions. The summit is only a few meters away. Shortly ahead is that moment we have all been working so hard to achieve: the summit itself. The slope steepens for a section behind the ridge and the summit comes back into view. The 360 panorama is perhaps one of the most impressive as well as incredible views of Baruntse (7129m), Haling (7319m) and NauLekh (6360m) with Makalu (8481m) looming behind. We are far enough back so that the smaller peaks do not obscure the views, but at the same time are deep in the heart of this fantastic mountainous vista.

Trip Reviews

Extra mile service
Vera
5 - Excellent
11/08/2018

Service was excellent. They really go an extra mile to give their clients a stress-free experience. From beginning to end Paul, the humble owner was always there to show support and care. 1. My friend and I came from 2 separate countries. Discovery made 2 trips just to pick us up and we need not remind them to do it. They knew and they were prepared. 2. Paul was like a brother who would remind you of the things you have to do and bring. Since we were no experienced hikers, he lent us sleeping bags and a duffle bag. 3. He provided a very helpful guide. Subra. He was a bodyguard, a guide and a photographer all rolled into one. 4. He booked us at good hotels and lodging houses with astounding mountain View. 5. am from a tropical country. I live by the sea, I had prepared for EBC physically. I did some trekking, swimming and jogging. But my big mistake was I failed to acclimate on high altitude never did I think that I would experience altitude sickness but when I reached dingboche. Altitude sickness struck. My partner immediately asked for rescue and Paul was quick to respond. In less than 15mins I was airlifted from dingboche. And soon as we arrived the airport an ambulance was already waiting for us and I was taken directly to the hospital. Paul was there waiting. He already made arrangements at the hospital and reserved a room for me. When I was fully recovered, again Paul, the owner was there to check if we were ok. This service deserves more than 5 stars. No other company would extend this kind of service. It's more than just providing good trekking and traveling service. It's definitely doing doing business with much care, consideration and support to the clients. I will do EBC again when I am more prepared. I will seek for discovery world trekking service again. Coz I know it's trustworthy, the service is excellent and I will be safe with them.

Is Lukla Airport convenient for the flight?

Lukla is at 9,500 feet 2,850m above sea level. The higher the altitude, the lower the air density. So, the planes need to land at faster speeds. The weather in this area changes constantly and the cloud cover can be extreme, leading to major turbulence, which, though not dangerous, tends to be tough for passengers to endure. However, it is actually the country’s busiest airport serving as the key port of entry and exit for trekkers hoping to ascend Everest. Discovery World Trekking will try to make your flight pleasant in any circumstances.

What if my flight to and from Lukla is cancelled or delayed?

The flights are usually regular between October and May. But due to high altitude, bad weather and unforeseen technical issues, you may experience a delay or cancellation of the flight. On the occurrence of such events, Discovery World Trekking charters a helicopter to make sure you are on the safe schedule either for trek or for your flight back home which would cost extra charge as an unexpected event. However, if the visibility is less than 1,500 meters, it is unable to operate helicopter facilities and Discovery World Trekking will reschedule the flight.
