Salleri to Mera Peak Climbing is two weeks adventure in the lower part of Everest region which allows any travelers to experience the thrilling journey to remote settlements hidden on the laps of the mighty Himalayas. There is several starting point for Everest region exploration like Lukla, Jiri, Salleri or Tumlingtar. Since the development of roads in the lower Everest region, instead of taking flight to Lukla, we have seen many travelers ascending towards popular Everest Base Camp. It will surely help to acclimatize properly while enjoying the mixed terrains, landscapes and villages.
Our adventurous journey to Mera Peak Climbing starts with long drive from Kathmandu to Salleri and walking towards Khare passing beautiful less crowded settlements and dense forests. We take a rest day at Khare – a pre climbing day – to check with gears and equipments and familiarized ourselves with its use. We setup our camps in less than 6000m, and our team of climbers and support staff will assist you to make a final ascent to 6461m at Mera Peak summit. After hours of climbing, we relax a little on the summit, take a moment to appreciate the grand experience you just had and of course the mesmerizing view of sacred Himalayas. We take some photos before we start descending back to Khare where we spent our night and have a little celebration for the successful climb. We continue our walk towards Lukla – from where we catch our flight back to Kathmandu.
