* On the highest trekking points of Nepal in complete isolation amidst the world's highest snowcapped mountains

Introduction:

 

This trek to Mera can be considered as a combination of two of the most challenging passes- Mera-La 5,415m and Amphu Labtsa with reasonable climbing experience to the summit of Mera, highest trekking peak of Nepal. Our adrenaline-filled adventurous journey begins from the popular gateway to Everest in Lukla with a 45-minute sweeping panoramic flight from Kathmandu. From here onwards, we head into wilderness zone of the Khumbu region, passing through numerous passes of Zatwar-La and unspoiled forests of rhododendron and pines before making way to the base of Mera peak. It is a vigorous climb up to the summit with a grand view of the surrounding majestic peaks that circle you, including the world's highest peaks, Mt. Everest, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Lhotse and Makalu. After the ascent, our adventure continues toward the upper isolated Hongu Valley crossing high pass of Amphu Labtsa before descending to the Khumbu area. The trek later follows the main popular trail from here onwards to Lukla via the renowned scenic, colourful places of Thyangboche and Namche Bazaar. A smooth scenic flight to Kathmandu concludes our outstanding journey in the Himalayas.

There are many small streams with numerous places for camp, whole of this area referred to as Chutanga which is a summer pasture.

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 4,600meteres. In bad weather to find the path of our route can be quite misleading care should be taken. In fine weather, the view across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are very impressive, and the scenery across the rolling foothills of the Hinku Valley.

Gondishung itself has a fascinating 200 year old gompa (monastery) beneath a great rock overhang, is a small Gompa with a Buddha and several Buddstava, prayer flags and 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, a settlement made by the yak herders.

Here we will have three nights camping on this beautiful surrounding.
   
Day 09-10: Rest day for acclimatisation. O/N Camp.

Our route follows a relatively good trail leading up across the moraine which dams the Charpatti Tal, 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 45 minutes we reach the large pasture of Dig Kharka, here we cross the stream with the help of stepping stones towards the walls of an old shelter. We will have a break here perhaps time for lunch, after Dig Kharka, 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 an obvious spots on large boulders. Following a trail for more than an hour across the boulder strewn hillside, we reach Khare our overnight

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. From here we must be on crampons for safety to climb the 30-35 degree ice for quarter of an hour to reach the plateau leading to Mera la. 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 its another hour to reach the pass, on reaching Mera-la after 3-4 hours of morning walk, we continue our journey for another 3 hours to our overnight high camp beneath Mera Peak, the first hour climb offers grand view of the northern peaks of Makalu, then Everest with cloud plume peeking over the massive black wall of Nuptse.

Enjoy the breathe taking scenery of the surrounding high snow capped peaks and feeling physically, spiritually and emotionally high being on the highest spot of this extreme adventure.

As soon the kitchen staffs and porters arrive at the pass, they will be lowered the 150 meters to the relatively less steep ground below the pass. Similarly, loads have to be carefully lowered, after checking every member in the group we slowly and carefully descend with the help of ropes and ice axe if required, then reaching the safe side from the pass by early afternoon everybody should be off the snow.
Once in the safe ground away from the snow and ice area, an hour or more walk will take us to the ablation valley by the side of the Imja Glacier, now being within the Imja-tse valley walking will be more or less easier most of the way to the trekkers civilization at Chukung a temporary settlement with 5-6 teahouse and lodges.
