Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha Pass Trek

Duration: 21 Days   |  

Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha Pass trek is one of the strenuous and challenging trips in the Khumbu region. Mera is a popular peak in Everest region and its summit offers the awe-inspiring views of Himalayan peaks including Mt. Everest, Ama Dabalam , Lhotse, Nupte, Makalu and many others. Amphu Lapcha pass trek is one of the remote and less visited area treks in the Khumbu region and the trek crosses the striking Amphu Lapcha pass. While crossing the pass the views can see is breathtaking.
Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha pass trek is a beautiful and isolated trek in Khumbu region which 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 nontechnical climb which anyone with ice-axe and crampon experience can attempt.

After having a proper acclimatization and well prepared we can reach the summit of this beautiful Mera peak and obtain views that encompass four of the five highest mountains in the world 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.

Acclimatization
Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
