Mera and Amphu Lapcha Pass Trek

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

Mera Peak & Amphu Lapcha Pass TrekThis superb trek takes us away from the more frequented trails, which lead to Everest Base Camp and over a little used pass to the east, through which we enter the sparsely inhabited Linkhu Valley. From here we walk northwards through a beautiful high alpine environment, where Mera Peak, at (6654m.) the highest trekking peak in Nepal, towers over the valley. Traversing around to the north, however, we find a softer side to the mountain, and from here it is a non-technical climb which anyone with ice-axe and crampon experience can attempt.

 

Ama Dablam Views and Island Peak GlacierIf you’ve acclimatized well, and have strong lungs and plenty of willpower, you can reach the summit of this beautiful Himalayan peak and obtain views that encompass four of the five highest mountains on earth standing proud over hundreds of lesser ones, many still unnamed and unclimbed. The main interesting and adventure treks take us through the Amphu Lapcha high passes to Chhukung from where our trek back to Lukla.
