Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu.

On the very first day of your trip, you will experience something truly Nepalese- a traditional Nepalese dinner. Rest assured that our representatives will be there to pick you up at the airport, help you check in to your hotel and then take you out for dinner.

Day 2: Sightseeing around Kathmandu.

You will spend the second-day sightseeing around Kathmandu – there’s the swayambhunath , the Boudhanath Stupa, and some ancient heritages of Nepal to be visited. In the latter half of the afternoon, our guides will brief you and help you sort out all the equipment for the trip.

Day 3: Flight to Lukla and trek to Paiya (2730m).

The flight to Lukla is one adventurous ride that you’re never going to forget. The flight is only 25 minutes long and you get so immersed in the view outside the airplane window that the flight will seem too short. However, do expect occasional bumps during your flight and sit tight when you’re about to land in the world’s most dangerous airport. The first trekking day is comparatively easy and the walk between Lukla and Paiya takes only 3 hours if you are a really good hiker. Since it is your first day trekking, you can walk leisurely and enjoy the scenery around you.

Day 4: Trek to Pangkongama (2850m)

The trail now leads you up through forests of rhododendron and bamboo as you enjoy the views of the Dudhkoshi River and Dudhkoshi Himal, before reaching Pangkongama.

Day 5: Trek to Nigmsa (2745m).

A day of gradual descents as you walk along a trail that passes through a rhododendron forest, some teahouses, hills, ridges until you reach Nigmsa.

Day 6: Trek to Chhatra Khola (3600m).

The trail between Nigmsa and Chhatra Khola starts with a steep ascent through a narrow mountain trail before it climbs more gently through some more rhododendron forests.

Hike along the ridge of the Hinku Khola River and enjoy superb views of the Mera Peak and Hinku Valley as you reach Kothe.

Day 11: Khare to Mera Peak Base Camp (5300m).

The path is mostly steep throughout the entire trail. An early start makes sure you arrive at the Base Camp for lunch.

Day 12-15: Climbing Period (Mera Peak).

During this period you’ll stay for a few days in the Base Camp where your guides will help you prepare for the climb. You’ll be taught how to use your equipment and get familiar with technical climbing techniques. By Day 15 you’ll have made it to the summit and returned to Base Camp.

Day 19: Trek to Monjo (2810m).

Start early, stop at Namche Bazaar for lunch and walk mostly downhill to Monjo. You will be amazed to see how short the descent is and will surely remember the day you struggled to climb up to Namche.

Day 20: Trek to Lukla (2800m).

More downhill walking and some ascents will take you to Lukla, where you can celebrate your successful trek, get a chilled beer in one of the pubs or treat yourself to something sweet at the German bakery outside the airport

An early morning flight will take you to Kathmandu and you have the entire day to yourself. Eat as much as you want, go shopping or do nothing at all!
