Mera Peak and Amphu Lapcha Pass trek are one of the strenuous and challenging trips in the Khumbu region. Mera is a popular peak in the Everest region and its summit offers the awe-inspiring views of Himalayan peaks including Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, 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 the 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-ax and crampon experience can attempt.
After having 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.
