The small city of Lukla is the commence point of trek. It takes 8 days to reach Mera Peak Base Camp from Lukla.

From Mera Peak we heard into an even quieter valley, the Honku, where we experience true Himalayan wilderness. We spend a day crossing the high and tricky Amphu Laptsa before re-entering the Khumbu and the crowds of trekkers and climbers that go with it. We tackle Island Peak via the normal route, directly underneath the imposing south west face of Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world. After this we head back down the Khumbu, passing through numerous Sherpa settlements, including Dingboche, Tengboche and of course Namche. Before you know it you’ll be back to the hustle and bustle of busy Kathmandu, were a nice warm shower and your onward flight awaits!
