As you set to trek towards Mera Peak, you start gathering great pleasure of reaching above 21,000 feet and looking down the whole earth. You will be marching through the Hongu and the Hinku valleys which have remained uninhabited although there are Kharka, places for cattle grazing in the Upper Hinku basin where Sherpa from the South, near Pangkongma, are occasionally seen grazing their cattle during the grass- growing monsoon season. As you pass through the upper Hongu basin, you will march through a mountainous wilderness. You will also venture through some beautiful forests, massive moraines, glacial lakes and spectacular peaks that include Charmlang and Baruntse.

 

Special Notice: Due to unpredictable weather conditions in the Himalayas there may be unforeseen schedule changes with domestic flights to Lukla and from Lukla. The flights may be delayed for several hours or pushed back by a day or more, depending on the circumstances. Although this is rare, it can happen even during the best trekking seasons. As you know, high altitude weather conditions can be difficult to predict. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you plan for this by allowing for an extra day or two in Nepal after your trek, if possible. This will help ensure that you have some flexibility with regard to your trek. On the other hand, if everything goes according to plan, you will have time to enjoy other activities such as rafting, wildlife viewing, shopping, or just relaxing after your adventure.
