The trail is pretty well defined though this is off the beaten path. In winter people and animals do not stay in these high regions. So local people and trekkers would very much less frequent the area through out the trek. Walk slowly and gradually to higher elevation. In the schedule walk in is done slowly and extra day for acclimatization days at Khare is planned before climbing to Merala (5335m). Visit Hinku Nup glacier to the base of Kantega or help carry some food and equipment to high camp at Mera la. The day at Khare can be used to visit Hinku Nup glacier to the base camp of Kantega. Or, help carry some food and necessary equipment to Merla La. Usually we set up high camp above Mera la (pass) to help negotiate crevasses early in the morning, so next day climb would be easier. Though high camp may not be necessary, but it can only be decided on the site. Mera peak has twin summit.

The view from the summit towards the high mountain peaks is the best anywhere. Retrace the trail back to Lukla and fly out to Kathmandu. There are small villages, stone huts and high pasture animals shades until Khare. The trail is pretty well defined though this is off the beaten path. In winter people and animals do not stay in these high regions. So the area through out the trek would be very much less frequented by people and trekkers.

But this can only be determined at the situation.

The ascent is steep and straightforward. Mera peak has twin summit; it is possible to climb the other one of lesser height on the same day. Most people agree that the view from the summit towards the high mountain peaks is the best anywhere. Return journey shall follow same route back to Lukla.
