Day 04: Trek to Chatrabuk (4,320m)

A couple of hours of descending walk from here will bring us in Chatrabuk.

Day 05: Trek to Kothe 3580m

Do you know you will get the first glimpse of Mera Peak today? Isn’t it exciting? But prior to getting the first view of this majestic tower, Mera Peak, we need to cross a few passes. Most of today’s trek is downhill full of zig-zags. We will also ascend at some places before getting in Kothe.

Acclimatization is essential and compulsory while trekking on the Himalayas. It is because a rest day on mountains will help your body to adjust with increasing elevation. Negligence in this part could result in altitude sickness which will not only ruin your entire trip but also risk your life.

It another rest day today because we are at an altitude of over 5,000m and this is something we suggest strongly to our guest/s. Short hikes around the area will help your body to adjust with gaining elevation. It is also a kind a part of climbing preparation.

Day 10: Trek to Mera Peak Base Camp (5,415m)

Despite being ascended walk, the climb today will be easy. We reach Mera La Pass which is at an altitude of 5,415m. A further walk will lead us to Mera Peak Base Camp where you will see many makeshifts/tents and those are arranged by different groups who will be scaling summit soon.

What a day for the achievers like you! Could you express this feeling of achievement verbally? Obviously, not because some feelings are just to experience. After spending some time on the peak, we get back to Khare.

Day 13: Reserve day for climbing

For contingency purpose, we keep a day in spare while on the adventure like climbing because bad weather can refrain you from scaling the peak. So, it is most.
