Day 13 Reserve day for the summit attempt

On condition that we were not able to land up at the vertex on day twelve, this reserve day will render us another window of opportunity to conquer the peak and make our expedition count. The day thirteen may not be useful to us in the case of a triumph over the Mera Peak but it is better to have a contingency plan if something goes wrong because the Himalayan Region is indeed a dangerous place with deadly avalanches and unpredictable weather.

Day 14 Khare to Kote

Succeeding our victory over the Mera Peak, we’ll go back over the same route that we used previously and carry on with the descent to Kote via Hinku Valley. We can catch glimpses of snow-covered massifs throughout the trek on this stretch of trail.

We’ll progressively move up to Chutanga (3,020m) then keep on with the trail to Lukla.

Day 17 Lukla to Kathmandu

Today marks the end of our climbing escapade. We’ll board a flight from Lukla that will transfer us back to Kathmandu. We’ll be the spectators of soul-stirring Himalayan panoramas during 30 minutes of this picturesque flight. Here in the capital city, you can relax in your hotel room or just stroll freely in the vivid marketplaces to shop some souvenirs.

Day 18 Free day in Kathmandu

It entirely depends upon you regarding the way to spend the day. Kathmandu Valley has much more to offer. Visit the remaining monuments and buildings as the ‘day tour’ does not take you to all of the ancient structures. Try out the food, species and the unique flavours of Nepal. In addition, you may explore the classical villages of Khokana and Bungmati situated on the outskirts of the Valley.

Day 19 Departure

We hope that you’ll be genuinely satisfied with our expertise and hospitality.
