Twin Peak Climb - All Climbing Gear Provided
Standing over 6460 meters, the spectacular Mera Peak offers a tremendous Himalayan summit thrill. A challenging long high, altitude trek to climb in the Himalayas. Island Peak, at 6189 meters, though of a lesser height, is slightly more technically demanding and exposed than the Mera. Thus it tests the climbing skills you have to learn on the Mera Peak and Amphu Laptsa crossing a week before. The view from both of these peaks' summits is simply breathtaking.
We organize special climbing training courses at the base camp. Thus, it ensures you are capable and confident enough to summit the Mera and Island peaks climbing safely. The Amphu Labtsa pass requires some technical climbing ability to cross it safely. Our climbing guides team fixes ropes for you to make the descent safe and easy. Therefore the abseil on the rocky crest and compact blue glacier ice sections are safe. We provide all the personal and group climbing gear to make it a hassle-free and affordable trip in the Himalayas.
Mera and Island peak climbing via Amphu Lapcha Pass
We take the longer route to Mera peak base camp through the lush rhododendron and pine forests. While higher up, there are the uninhabited alpine areas of the upper Hinku valley. After the Mera Peak summit, we head eastwards, exploring the less-used route towards Makalu and the wilderness of the Hinku valley. Furthermore, we camp at Seto Pokhari, a sacred lake at over 5000 meters nestling beneath the stunning ramparts of Chamlang, Lhotse, and Everest dominating the horizon. Our next challenge is crossing the rugged Amphu Labtsa pass at 5700 meters on our way to Island Peak. Though climbing to the Island peak is challenging, you are well-trained and acclimatized properly to scale it safely with our experienced climbing guide. Undoubtedly the panoramic summit views are lovely and will stay in your memory forever.
Finally, we trek down to Lukla via Thyangboche monastery. We stay at local tea houses while trekking from Island Peak to Lukla. This accommodation change allows you to enjoy the relatively cozy comfort of the teahouse. Enjoy the dining room and sleep in a comfortable bed after many nights spent in tented camps. We expect our participants on this Mera and Island peak climbing via Amphu Laptsa pass expedition trip to have extensive outdoor adventure skills with good trekking and hiking experience.
