Mera Peak Climbing and Amphu Lapcha Pass

The highest trekking peak in Nepal and views of four of the world’s five highest mountains with Amphu Lapcha high pass

Mera Peak ClimbingThis trek starts at Lukla and passes through the remote and wilderness trail, Mera Peak climb, dramatic Amphu Lapcha Pass (5,800m/19,029ft) and ends back in Lukla. We have added an expedition to Mera Peak en-route reached after crossing the Mera La pass (5,415m/17,766ft) to supply the demand of adventure trekkers who are looking for more challenging treks and climb small peaks. Mera Peak (6,654m./21,831ft) is the highest NMA listed trekking peak in Nepal, situated on the edge of famous Khumbu region and boasts an absolutely stunning summit panorama that includes five of the world's 8000m peaks - Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Everest. Mera Peak is becoming more popular among trekkers as it is ideally a suitable mountain for beginners. Although Mera Peak is physically very demanding, the climbing itself is quite technically straightforward not exceeding 30° on the snow slopes. The only qualification required to climb Mera Peak is excellent physical fitness and passion to adventure sports.

 

Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha Pass TrekingAfter the summit of Mera Peak, we proceed towards Amphu Lapcha pass dropping down into the uninhabited Hinku (Honku) valley situated to the east. The upper Hinku section is truly a wild valley where it is very unlikely to meet other trekkers. The valley is high and open, fringed with broad moraines and sharp white peaks and a wonderful place to camp. The glacial lakes and views of Chamlang (7,319m/24,013ft) and Baruntse (7,129m/23,390ft) are significantly attractive here. The crossing of the Amphu Lapcha pass is technically more demanding and adds an excitement of breathtaking views to the adventurous trekkers and climbers. The Amphu Lapcha pass is ascended with the protection of fixed ropes over straightforward icefall and the descent requires a short abseil to a broad snow terrace to Imja Tse base camp (Island Peak) and overnight at Chhukung. The pass is tricky owing to steepness although it is at a lower altitude than Mera (6,654m./21,831ft) and Island Peak (6,160m./20,211ft). Finally Amphu Lapcha Pass is regarded as one of the most challenging and technical high passes in Nepal. From Chhukung we trek back to Lukla and take flight to Kathmandu.
