Trek preparation day at Kathmandu.
An early morning scenic flight to Lukla (35 minutes) is followed by a leisurely breakfast at Lukla. We meet up with our crew and after a brief introduction and a quick sorting of our daypack and the main bags, our adventure starts. The path goes into the valley towards the left into the more quieter valley and passes through small tea shops and passes small settlement of Chutok. The trail ascends from the very beginning from Lukla and undulates briefly at some places during the day. The day’s trek ends at a small village of Chutanga. (3 hours)
The day is spent on an easy hike to gain an altitude of more than 500-600 meters and then a free afternoon to rest follows. This day is very important as the trek quickly enters into higher altitudes of more than 4000 meters on the very next day.
The trek enters further into the valley ascending all the time and enters the alpine vegetation leaving the tree line behind. The path reaches the end of the valley below the Zatra La. A steep ascent leads to the top of the pass and an equally steep descent follows. The descent ends at Thuli Kharka, a small flatland with couple of Teahouses. (6 hours)
The trail briefly drops and yet again steadily starts to climb to the top of another small pass. A steep descent slowly leads back into vegetations and passes through thinner forests that start to grow thicker with the drop in the elevation. The drop ends as the trek enters the Hinku valley and then undulates through forests of Pine and Bamboo. At the end of the forest, another small settlement with couple of Teahouses marks the end of the day. The village also provides of the first glimpse of the Mera Peak. (6 hours)
The trek continues to move further into the valley following the river closely and passes through the yak pasturelands used in the summer. The trail continuously and gradually keeps ascending and passes a spiritual cave monastery on the way. The ascent finally ends at Thangnak. There are few hikes available around afternoon that will further more enhance the process of acclimatization. The hikes also provide views of the Kusum Kanguru (6367 meters), Kyashar (6770 meters), Mera La (5415 meters) and other peaks of the Hinku Valley. (4 hours)
The trek now travels on a rocky trail and keeps ascending towards Mera Peak. After a good climb in the morning the trail reaches the grassy areas of Dig Kharka, another yak pastureland. Once again, the trail ascends into the higher elevation and finally ending at the last settlement of the trek, Khare. (3 hours)
The day will be used to get into the glacier and acclimatize to the higher altitude. Also, the climbing guide will provide a brief training on climbing and also will introduce all the gears going to be used during the climb. The training is to introduce you to the basics of mountaineering and also for to build up your confidence, so that you can enjoy the climb.
The day will be another day full of ascending but this time, it is on the glacier. In the morning after a good hour or so of climbing, the trail passes by a small teashop, the final teashop before the summit of Mera Peak (6476 meters). A gradual walk finally on an easier slope through the glacier follows after a steep ascent. The slope continues until the Mera La and the trail will drop a bit to reach the campsite. (4 hours)
A return to the Mera La is followed by another ascent that only ends at the High Camp. The High Camp lies next to a huge rock and offers stunning views of several mountains of the Khumbu region, including views of Makalu (8463 meters), Kangchenjunga (8586 meters) and Everest (8848 meters) being the highest ones.

The trek to Seto Pokhari is quite a comfortable trail with Chamlang (7319 meters) and Baruntse (7129 meters) visible for most of the day. The trail stays almost flat and quietly gains altitude of a couple of hundred meters at the end of the day at Seto Pokhari. (5 hours)
The trek continues to climb further into the valley, one of the most remote place in the country. Only fellow trekkers trying to experience the wilderness can be met in this part of the trek. The day is relatively a short day because of the altitude as the day ends at Chamlang Base Camp. (3 hours)
Another short day trek ends the day at Amphu Laptsa Base Camp. A good rest is a must as the trek crosses one of the most technical pass in the following day. (4 hours)
The trail climbs through huge sections of rocks and ices and only ends at the top. A steep drop from the top leads into the Chukung valley. The day ends in the valley as we camp on a flatland at the bottom of the pass. (8-9 hours)
