Mera and Island Peak Climbing via Amphu Lapcha Pass Trekking combines the journey to two beautiful peaks in the Khumbu region - Mera and Island Peak. Both the peaks are renowned for magnificent views of mountain chains, among which most are above 8000 meters. Mera is the highest peak that can be climbed without a permit in Nepal and lies south of Everest. Trekkers mainly prefer island Peak to the Everest Base Camp.

Our trek starts after an early morning flight to Lukla, from where the route slowly gains elevation as we move to the Mera Peak. Crossing the Mera La pass, we reach the Mera Peak Base Camp and ascend further to the High Camp (5750m). Mera Peak (6654m) is technically an easy climb, and the slopes seldom exceed 40 degrees. However, crevasses at places demand alertness. The climb is strenuous from the last 50 meters to the top. Panoramic views of Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, and other peaks are rewarding at the top.

Crossing the Honku valley, PanchPokhari, and the AmphuLapcha La Pass, we reach Chhukung valley, which houses the beautiful Island Peak. The climb to High Camp is a strenuous one, crossing which the trail to the top of Island Peak is through rock formations and glacial regions. However, the view from the top is equally rewarding, with outstanding views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, and other peaks.

Khumbu region is also known for its beautiful valleys, high passes, Sherpa communities, and varied flora and fauna. The trek demands you to be physically fit and adventure-seeking. Walking and climbing through snow onto higher altitudes is challenging, yet the itinerary can acclimatize you properly.
