Mera Peak Expedition return by Helicopter -14 days

 

The Mera Peak Expedition return by Helicopter is a well crafted itinerary with enough Acclimatization days at 4000m and 5000m altitude in order to complete the successful summit of Mera peak( 6476m), one of the highest trekking peak of Nepal. This is one of the shortest and best itineraries to reach the top of Mera peak in deluxe mode. This is a lifetime experience. A wonderful expedition starts with the regular old trail of Chutanga over tha Chatra La pass( 4600m) to Kothey. The trail gains quick high altitude from Lukla 2860m to Chatra la pass( 4600m) in two days but gently lowers down to Kothey at 3580m on the 3rd day of the trek. The trail from Lukla to Chutanga on the first day is moderate, but the second day of the trek is straightforward, climbing up to 4600m, Zhatra La pass and will sleep at Chatrabuk, which is 4200m. during 3 days of trek, you will cross 4600m which is very helpful for best acclimatization as you are sleeping in Low altitude of 3580 Kothey one night and 4280m Thaknak two nights. thats why for this Helicopter return mera peak expedition, the trekking route from Lukla- Chutanga- Chatra la pass- Chatrabuk- Kothey is best option than another route.

 

Proper & Adequate Acclimatization for successful Mera peak summit

 

The trail from Kothey to Khare is much better than the first 3 days, which does not involve too many ups and downs. To prevent any sort of AMS, we spent two nights at Thaknag and two nights at Khare for better acclimatization. During the acclimatization day, you will hike to the hills for 3-4 hours to cover the altitude formula of "Go higher, sleep lower". KHARE is the last lodges place in the Mera peak region, from Kahre we hike to High camp( 5800m) of Mera peak, which is normally 5-7 hours of walking in your climbing boots of normal hiking boots.

 

From high camp, depending on the weather and walking situation of climbers, climbing sherpa can starts climbing around 2 am or 3 am. we reach the summit of Mera peak around sunrise time between 6-7 am. after all gorgeous photographs, we decend down to High camp for Lunch and walk down to Khare today, it is one of the hardest tiring day but one of the best day too as you summit the mera peak 6476m. you will spend a night at Khare or if you arrive Khare by early afternoon, same day can fly by Helicopter to Lukla.

 

Why should you book Mera Peak Expedition return by Helicopter? with us?

Mera peak climbing trip with the return to Lukla by helicopter after the summit of Khare is a more convenient way to finish the expedition, time saving and avoiding walking the same trail ups and down back to Lukla. If you are a trekker(s) or climber(s), who wants to save a number of days, still wants to do Mera peak with an adequate Acclimatization day and wish to find a comfortable way to finish the trip, this trip is right for you. This is more likely a type of luxury Mera peak expedition which also have 1 extra weather or contingency day for mera peak summit. our main concern is guiding our valuable clients to reach top of  Mera peak in short time, with proper and enough acclimatization, leading them to the highest trekking peak in safe way organizing successful mera peak expedition in deluxe way.
