The No. 1 Adventure Trekking Specialists

The No. 1 Adventure Trekking Specialists

Voted the UK's number one trekking and walking company at the British Travel Awards by our awesome customers, we know how to get that adventure done for you!

Mera Peak, Nepal’s highest trekking peak lies on the edge of the famous Khumbu Region, where it overlooks many of the world’s highest summits, including Mt Everest. Although Mera Peak is at a significant altitude, the climbing is not technical and relatively straightforward. This trip is ideal for those looking to venture into Himalayan Mountaineering, who have a good level of fitness and a keen sense of adventure.

Ultimate Mera Peak is the highest of the designated trekking peaks in Nepal. Its altitude rises to 6,461m with amazing views of five of the world’s 8000-metre peaks: Mt. Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse and Cho Oyo from the summit. This makes Mera Peak a great challenge but one that’s more than achievable.

The Mera Peak expedition begins with an exciting 40-45 min flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla (Labelled the most dangerous airport in the world). The trek winds it’s way through forests of rhododendron, pine and bamboo, taking a longer, less trodden trail that gradually passes through the beautiful landscape of the Hinku Valley up to Mera Peak. You will fall in love with the most incredible mountain views, sample the local Sherpa culture and lifestyle and get to experience a real Himalayan expedition.

Climbing Mear Peak is physically demanding due to its altitude, but not technically difficult. We plan these trips at times of the year where the you will have the best chance of summiting the peak. Spring (March-May) and Autumn (September-November) are the best times to climb the Mera Peak in terms of weather, visibility and the trails.

Welcome to Nepal. Today is your first day with EverTrek. We will pick you up at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and transfer you to the hotel in Thamel. We will also catchup with the rest of the group before we meet in the evening for our welcome dinner at one of the finest, local Nepali restaurants in Kathmandu. Time for some local dance and some amazing Nepali food.

Meals included: Dinner

(Highlights of the day: Arrive in Kathmandu! Welcome dinner with some local food and dancing )

Today we will head out into Kathmandu and visit the cultural and historical sites of the Kathmandu valley. We will visit the  UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu and have lunch at one of our favorite viewpoints in the city. Kathmandu lies at 1300m above sea level so it’s important to get out and about today and let your body acclimatise. In the evening we will grab any last minute items in the trekking hub of Thamel and get an early night ready for the trek tomorrow.

Meals Included: Breakfast

*Something to note*

Due to ongoing development and important maintenance at Kathmandu Tribhuvan Airport, your flight to Lukla may be rerouted to Ramechhap Airport. This is because the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) ruled that flights to and from Lukla during the 2019 post-monsoon season would operate through Ramechhap rather than Kathmandu. This action has been prolonged longer than expected and the CAAN is looking at permanently moving all flights that go to Lukla from Ramechhap. While some flights will certainly still go from Kathmandu, they are not always guaranteed, even when booked in advance and can be subject to unplanned and prolonged delays.

If flying to Lukla from Ramechhap Airport, the journey to Ramechhap will start on day two of your itinerary. After a part-day tour of Kathmandu, you will drive for approx. four to five hours to the town of Mulkot where EverTrek will provide accommodation and your evening meal. As with all Nepalese roads, the journey will be a bumpy one, but it’s necessary to ensure your dream of Base Camp becomes a reality! It will be an early start on day three, as you wake up at 3:30/4:30 am and take a short 30-minute drive to the airport. The flight to Lukla is shorter from Ramechhap than from Kathmandu which means we can monitor the weather windows with greater accuracy. EverTrek will get you on one of the first flights to Lukla where you can have a hearty breakfast and celebrate the start of your trek!

On the return journey, you will fly from Lukla to Ramechhap and then take the long bumpy adventurous drive back to Kathmandu. The traffic going into Kathmandu can be severe, so this may take approximately six to seven hours (with breaks for food and a stretch).

Although this has been an enforced change for everyone from CAAN, our ultimate aim is to get you on the trek safely and to make it to Everest Case Camp so we have made plans to make sure there will be as minimal disruption as possible. We will provide all the additional staff and accommodation for the diversion, absolutely no cost will be passed onto you, our awesome EverTrekkers, but we do ask for your patience with the potential change with the itinerary.

You can find more information in our Knowledge Centre article, here.

(Highlights of the day: Visiting Centuries-old cultural, historical & religious sites around Kathmandu including World Heritage Sites like Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Swyambhunath and Boudhanath. An awesome day!)

*Important to note*

As with your first flight to Lukla, this journey may also be via Ramechhap Airport rather than Kathmandu. Once your short flight lands at Ramechhap, the journey then to Kathmandu will be the long and bumpy drive back to Hotel Aloft, stopping for breaks along the way. This drive, dependent on traffic, will likely be between 5-7 hours.

More Info

The Ultimate Mera Peak Expedition is a tough and arduous trek and climb. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter. You should have experience of walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of Himalayan trekking is preferable, but not essential as long as you are a very regular and committed hill-walker. As this route takes you over remote high passes and a Himalayan peak, experience of having been to 5000-metres before is ideal.

We can forward a detailed equipment list upon booking. However, you can also view our Recommended Equipment for 6000m trips

Over the years, we have gained an incredible amount of experience and expertise in outdoor equipment and clothing. We have applied this to each trip that we offer and recommend what we believe to be the most suitable items for your trip.

6000m Peak Essential Kit List


We've put together this equipment list for our trekking peak trips like Mera Peak, Island Peak and others. Although this list is quite detailed there might be some bits you might also want to bring that form part of your expedition or trekking kit.

While you can rent certain items in country, the quality and availability of items CANNOT be guaranteed, we therefore recommended you bring the following items yourself to avoid any issues in country...

  • High quality 4 season down sleeping bag, we recommend a rating for -20°.
  • Expedition down jacket for summit days (approx 800 fill specification)
  • Set of C1 trekking crampons compatible with normal hiking boots, these may be needed for approach and descent (not for summitting)
  • Bring your own winter B2 or B3 high altitude mountaineering boots (for Spring), or B3 boots (for Autumn).



Your Bags

very popular brands are Osprey, Lowe Alpine, Berghaus.

recommend Thermarest mats as they are light, compact and help retain your body heat while

Handwarmers – These are great to keep your hands warm on summit night or on cold nights in the
tent, can also be put into your boots.
