The first thing you need to do is pick the right itinerary, there is no one size fits all and you need to have as much acclimatization in the critical points of the trek and climb You need 3 nights acclimatization in Khare on the way up the trail. We also use the base camp before high camp which is vital to a safe, enjoyable and success experience in a low oxygen environment. You also need a full training day in Khare and we have days in support of this. You also need 1 nights in Mera peak base camp at 5,350m/ 17,552 feet and additional night at high camp 5,800m/ 19,029 feet. We carry up water, tents and all equipment and food needed for the climb. If you attempt Mera peak from Khare and move up to high camp you are increasing your level of fatigue and altitude sickness. This is the biggest mistake you can make. DON’T DO IT.  You will need all your energy to climb safely high on this mountain. Do take extra days in Khare and use the base camp, before moving to high camp.
