Mera Peak Climbing & Amphu Labcha Pass Climbing : Trip Overview

Trip to Mera Peak Climbing and Amphu Labcha Pass, we climb one of the most fascinating hiking trails in Nepal. Anyone who visits the upper Himalayas can visit Mera Peak (6,461 m / 21,190 ft) and enjoy the most beautiful views of the Himalayas. Our 21-day trip also includes a fascinating journey through the remote Himalayan region and the Amphu Labcha pass. Located on the edge of the famous Khumbu region, it is dominated by mountains. Mount Everest, climbing the Meera is an opportunity for all explorers. In addition, there are breathtaking views of Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and other Himalayan peaks. The special Himalayas at high altitude pass through the challenging passage from Amphu Laptsa in the Himalayas to the peaks of Mera and the island.

Mera and Island are two famous mountain peaks in the Himalayas. Mera , Peak of the island rise, along with the spectacular high channel and challenging Amphu Lapcha to make this expedition very special, so you have the most demanding experience of hiking and climbing in Nepal . Himalayan Adventure Nepal specializes in this maximum expedition of Mera and Island, allowing each participant to properly adapt to two peaks over 6,000 meters and cross a less challenging Amphu Lapcha pass and walk through Hinku. The remote valley and Imja tse in the Everest region: a great opportunity not to be missed in the Himalayas. Climb the peaks of Mera and Island of the Himalayas through the challenging passage of Amphu labtsa.

Mera spectacular peak as high as 6460 meters, offers an excellent stimulus to the peaks of the Himalayas – an introductory mountain time to top, it is never steep enough to make people feel terrible, but very exciting. The height of the island of 6189 meters, although small height, but slightly higher technical requirements and the degree of exposure, so you can try rose of Mera Peak and Amphu Laptsa  if you have climbing skills. The landscape of these two peaks is simply stunning. We organize special climbing courses at the Base Camp to ensure that you can safely and safely climb the two mountain peaks of the Himalayas. The Amphu Labtsa Pass requires a technical climbing ability to travel safely through it, but our rock climbing guides and support teams will provide you ropes to descend from the top of the rock. In this way, all members of the expedition can descend safely. Our support team is also repairing the ropes from the top of the Amphu Laptsa Pass to the compact blue glaciers of Base Camp.

We spend two nights in Kathmandu, inspecting all the expeditions and exploring the cultural attractions, then took an exciting flight to Lukla and start climbing Mera Island through the Amphu Laptsa Pass. We travel along the conventional Mera Pico  route, through rhododendron forests and leafy pines, through Tangnang range Mera base camp, and in the upper part of the valley there are Hinku uninhabited mountainous areas. After the summit of Mera Peak, we explore the less used routes to Makalu base camp and the Hinku Valley desert. We are in the Seto Pokhari camp, a sacred lake of more than 5,000 meters, located under the magnificent walls of Chamlang – Lhotse and Mount Everest, which occupies the horizon. Our next challenge was to cross the difficult channel of Amphu Labtsa, which was 5,700 meters high, and to stumble upon a strong technical fall on the way to Base Island Peak Camp. The panoramic view of the mountain top is absolutely wonderful and will remain in your memory forever.

Finally, we walk to Lukla through the Thyangboche Monastery. We stay in a local tea house and walk from Island Peak to Lukla, so you can enjoy the cozy restaurant and sleep in comfortable bed after spending many nights at the tent camp. We hope our participants have a lot of outdoor adventure skills on this island and Mera and Amphu Laptsa expedition, and with good hiking and trekking experience. Previous experience in rock climbing is recommended, but it is not mandatory, as we will train you to complete all the climbing techniques necessary in the base camp.

Accommodation

We will stay at the star Hotels in Kathmandu, the standard tea house during hiking. Most of the tea house accommodations only have shared bathrooms. For the accommodation of the store, a foam mattress will be provided. In the climbing area, the sanitary facilities will provide the necessary natural protection. All accommodation in Kathmandu and the tea house are shared by two people, while the climbing area offers a tent for everyone. We can also request a single room in Kathmandu for a single additional fee of $ 350. However, there are several tea houses on the hiking trail that do not allow single rooms. After paying an individual supplement, you will get a single room in Kathmandu, but sometimes it is only possible in low altitude climbing areas.

Food

On our trip, we can enjoy Nepal, Tibet, India and the most common continental cuisine. Breakfast will be served during your stay in Kathmandu (only) and all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during hiking and climbing. On foot, breakfast will be held in the same place we were. Similar arrangements can be made for dinner. Lunch will be held on the way to the next destination. During the climbing process, the hotel will provide fresh and hygienic food. A welcome dinner and a farewell dinner will also be held in Kathmandu.

Physical conditions and experience requirements

Mera Peak is not classified as a technological peak, but some know-how would be beneficial for a small part of the climb of approximately 50 meters. This is probably the hardest part of the climb because the slope is about 40 degrees of ice/snow. Previous experience with hail and crampons was preferred, but is not mandatory, since basic ice climbing training will be provided before the summit.

Climbing at Mera Peak usually requires 5 to 6 hours of walking per day. However, in some days, we may even need to go for a while. Therefore, we recommend starting jogging and preparing for the trip at least 3 months before the start of the Mera Peak Climbing and Amphu Labcha Pass trips. A large amount of willpower, the ability to withstand difficult conditions, reasonable health and good health will help make this trip a success. It is important that participants with medical problems or pre-existing conditions inform the Himalayan Adventure Nepal at the time of booking.

The best travel time

The most favorable seasons for Mera Peak Climbing and Amphu Labcha Pass are spring (April and May) and autumn (September to November). The best month is based on visibility and favorable weather conditions.
