Mera Peak Climbing with Amphu Lapcha pass

About Trip

A mixture of wilderness adventure at its true best, this taxing trek has its rewards in some of the most awesome scenery ever beheld anywhere on earth. Mera Peak is geographically based in the Makalu Barun National Park that physically stands on the edge of the Khumbu region. At a height of 6476m this is one of Nepal's most notable trek peaks & presents some fantastic commanding views that are considered the best in Nepal's Himalayas. The vistas are stunning as we take in Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Kangchenjunga, Ama Dablam, Chamlang & Mt. Baruntse…all of these peaks make up some of the best in the world…to view & climb, if you have the grit & the experience. Given what it is in accordance with its height, Mera peak is pretty easy & doable for climbing even for those with no climbing experience at all, but you've got to be trim & fit…& happy-go-lucky to truly enjoy this climb; one must be positive in accepting challenges to a peak of substance, but then you don't have to worry because you will be in the company of a highly competent & experienced guide who'll be with you all the way & supported by a team of porters who are equally efficient in their jobs. Mera peak gears you up for going through the technically difficult Amphu Lapcha pass {also known as Amphu Labtsa}.

On peaking at Mera Peak, we plod on to the tough Amphu Lapcha pass which is real tricky due to its steepness; we ascend the Amphu Lapcha pass with the protection of fixed ropes over a straight-cut icefall & the descent has to be made by a short abseil onto a broad snow terrace. Without removing the high that we get after scaling Mera peak which is a challenging feat offering us fantastic views, we can't write off Amphu Lapcha which is definitely not a cake walk but then crossing this pass which is technically more demanding becomes a real thrilling aim for adventurous trekkers looking for the cutting edge of wilderness exploration. Our venture up Mera peak & across Amphu Lapcha cuts across some attractive territory because we hike through cultivated settlements with a lot of pleasant greenery & some lovely alpine forests. We've planned your program in such a way that you get some real needed acclimatization which is important, but the spots that we've chosen to give you the right kind of acclimatization is perhaps more important because there's so much to view & this prevents us from remaining idle which is not good when doing high altitude climbing.

Once we've done with the tough Amphu Lapcha, we enter the Sagarmatha National Park and begin to notice the wonderful changes in the territory we've hiked through in the course of our venture. Our return to Lukla is via the Imja Khola and Dudh Koshi river valleys, which takes us through the original route when climbers head for Mt. Everest. We relish the truly superb views of the west side of Ama Dablam at (6856m), and pass through the lively settlements of Tengboche, which has a major monastery, and the same-old Namche Bazaar, that tickles our throats & bodies with excitement, when heading up or heading down…because Namche seems to be the beacon of light that takes us to those dizzy heights & finally brings us down to earth…

Trip Note

Flight Delays …A possibility to keep In Mind When Planning

For treks that start in Lukla, we normally book flights between Kathmandu (KTM) and Lukla (LUK) on Twin Otter planes. While flight service between the two airports is fairly reliable, at times the flight schedule can be disturbed and flights cancelled because of weather or mechanical problems.  If this happens after your trek and you would miss your international flight out of Kathmandu, Adventure Club Trek can charter a helicopter on your behalf and at your expense, so that you do not miss your international flight. 

We accept US cash, travelers' checks, and credit cards (Visa and Master Card only). Upon payment to our Kathmandu office we will provide you with a receipt, which you can use to receive reimbursement if you have a travel insurance policy.  Depending upon the number of passengers, a helicopter flight will cost at least US$500, and up to US$3,500.

NOTE: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other regions.

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
