Hunku Valley treks & Mera Peak climbing gives you a real taste of natural beauty. Our adventure begins with a flight to the small airstrip on fixed wings or Helicopter at Tumlingtar. From here; we descend to the deep gorge of the beautiful Arun Valley in the Eastern region of Nepal. Arun valley is a lush, green oasis; rich in bird life and these first few days provide a fascinating contrast to high mountain escape as we approach Mera peak.
Our route; to the Mera La (5415m.) will take us through thick Rhododendron (National flower of Nepal) and bamboo forest separating the Hongu and Hunku Valleys. On the trail to Panch Pokhari, you will come across a beautiful Sherpa Village and Kirong La Monastery. From Panch Pokhari you will descend to Hunku River, a complete wilderness trail. The views along this section are superb. Towards the east we can see Kanchenjunga and Jannu. To the north, the views of Hunku and Hongu dominate. The trail continues to Thagnag (4366m.), from here, we move to Khare (5108m.) where we establish the base camp at the foot of the glacier leading the Mera La (5415m.). Here we have a number of days to rest, explore and acclimatize. Our return route will take us south, down to the Hunku Drangka before turning west to cross the Zaprawa La to the mountain airstrip at Lukla. From here we will fly back to Kathmandu the following day to a spectacular end.
