Our fix Departure to Mera Peak, Amphu Labtsa Pass and Island Peak Climbing

03/10/2017

This is one of Nepal's most challenging treks, set in breathtaking high mountain scenery. Mera Peak is situated in the Makalu Barun National Park on the edge of the Khumbu region. At 6476m it is the highest of the Nepal Trekking Peaks, and commands one of the best viewpoints in Nepal; there are panoramic views taking in, among others, Everest, Lohtse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho Oyo, Kanchenjunga, Ama Dablam, Chamlang and Baruntse. However, Mera is a technically straightforward peak to climb, attainable by non-climbers who are fit and who have an out-going sense of adventure, who are able to meet the challenges of trekking to significant altitude in the presence of a competent guide, supported by a team of porters. Climbers will need to make use of crampons to make the ascent, will use a long ice axe for support, and be roped to a guide across the glacier. First time users of these aids will be given instruction on their use at base camp. This course lead you to the Nepal’s most popular climbing peaks Mera and Island. Mera is the highest trekking peaks in Nepal considerably easy to ascend. We will be walking through the dense forest of rhododendron with standing Himalayan pine in first few Days. The summit of Mera peak gives you outstanding views of Mt. Makalu, Mt. Baruntse and Mt. Everest. Mt. Lhotse. After ascent on Mera the trip lead us to Amphu Lapcha La pass considerably strenuous due to its remote location. Then, after crossing the strenuous Amphu Lapcha La Pass we will enter the Imja valley for another ascent of Island Peak. Island Peak is known as easy climbing in Nepal’s trekking peaks. The summit of Island peak provides the beautiful marvelous vista of Mt. Everest. Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Amadablam and many more. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting amongst the mountain people also known as Shepra’s staying at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything is organized in conjunction with Sherpa guides. While passing Buddhist monasteries views of Everest get closer every day. Acclimatizing is very important so we will have rest days in the villages of Namche and Dingboche that will allow us to explore the region and acclimatize. Although this trek is called Everest Base Camp Trek, our goal is the summit of Kalapattar at an elevation of 5555 meters, which is higher than Everest Base Camp. After trekking to Kalapattar we return at our leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu. For the more adventurous trekkers you have the option of returning over the Cho La pass to the Gokyo valley, and then ascending Gokyo Ri. Or if you are really fit, you can attempt the summit of Island Peak.
