You will take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is around 30 minutes flight. You will be walking for around 4-5 hours passing small Sherpa settlements and beautiful Rhododendron and Pine forest to reach Chhutenga. You will be staying at Chhutenga for the night.

After breakfast, as usual, you will start your day. As there is no high pass like the previous day, the trek may be easy for you than the previous day. You will be walking for around 7-8 hours to reach Kothe and stay there for the night.

As usual, after breakfast, you will walk to reach Thangnak this day. Firstly you will be walking in the Shadow of Mera Peak to reach Gondishung and have lunch there. You can see around 200 years old Buddhist Monastery after a few minutes walk from Gondishung. After walking for around 5-6 hours in total, you will be reaching  Thangnak and staying there for the night.

The walk on this day might be difficult as you will be walking at a high altitude and you have to pass some glaciers and steep hill climbs in some areas. After a 6-7 hours walk in the high altitude, you will be reaching Khare and staying there for the night.

As you are trekking at high altitude areas, acclimatization is very important to avoid altitude sickness. Some people choose to rest at Khare for even 2-3 days. But a minimum of 1 day to 2 days is enough for people mentally and physically fit.

This day after breakfast in the early morning, you will start walking towards Mera High Camp. As you are walking at a high altitude, you might take a very long time to walk in this region. After a slow and steady walk for like 6-7 hours, you will be reaching Mera High Camp. You will be staying there for the night. Sometimes, due to bad weather conditions, you have to reserve a day at Mera High Camp before sumitting the Mera Peak.

This is the day you are waiting for. You will be climbing Mera Peak this day. The peak is at an altitude of 6476 M. You have to start climbing at around 2-3 am in the morning. Being late may cause difficulties because of the wind that starts blowing in high speed after 12 PM in the day. After sumitting Mera Peak, you will be heading back to Khare and stay there for the Night.

On this day, you will be walking down from Khare to Thuli Kharka. The days are easy compared to the previous days as you will be walking downhill. You will be returning the same way you were climbing in the previous days. You will be resting for the night at Thuli Kharka this day.
