Mera Peak, Nepal 26.10. – 18.11.2013

Matkatoimisto Aventuran vaellusmatka Mera Peakille loka-marraskuussa 2013. Luklasta patikoimme Zathra-La -solan yli Hinku-laaksoon ja Mera Peakin 6460-metriselle huipulle.

Säät olivat poikkeuksellisen kylmiä ja maasto runsaslumista johtuen Intiassa syksyllä velloneista sykloneista. Huippupäivä oli kirkas, mutta tuulinen.

Aventura Tour Operator’s trek to Mera Peak in October-November 2013. Due to cyclones in India there was very unusual amounts of snow in all of Nepal. Our summit-day was after all very clear, but windy.

A very leisurly day resting at Khote (3600m)! Did the ’walk through the holy rock’ the other side of the river! Wishing for warm summit-day!

Some say it last was this much snow in Nepal in 1995! Don’t know about that but it sure is white here in Khare! Heading down tomorrow.

Nov 10th 2013
And we’re down to Kothe (3600m)! Kind of a long day but nice getting to warmer altitudes. Not too tropical though this time of the year!

Nov 11th 2013
A very sunny rest-day in Khote! Incredibly clear skies and thus amazing visibility both down the valley and up to Mera Peak!

Nov 12th 2013
Stunning day from Khote to Zatra Bhu! Not a cloud in the sky which is very unusual for this stretch. Outstanding views!

Nov 13th 2013
It’s been a long day across Zathra-la, but we’ve now reached Lukla! No more walking this season! What a season it’s been!

Nov 14th 2013
Back in Kathmandu! Oh, how I love this city! Have had a lovely day after flying from Lukla a day early. Fun spending time with the members!

Nov 15th 2013
It doesn’t seem to be a perfectly normal morning in Kathmandu… Election next Tuesday so strikes and protests more or less underway.
