Climb the Mera and Island Peaks: all climbing gear provided

Standing over 6460 metres, spectacular Mera Peak offers a great Himalayan summit thrill. A challenging long high altitude  trek to climb in the Himalaya. Island Peak at 6189 metres, though of a lesser height, is a slightly more technically demanding and exposed than the Mera. Thus it test the climbing skills you have learn on the Mera Peak and Amphu Laptsa crossing a week before. The view from the both of these peaks' summit is simply breathtaking.

We organise special climbing training course at base camp. Thus to ensures that you are capable and confident enough to summit the Mera and Island peak climbing safely. The Amphu Labtsa pass requires some technical climbing ability to cross it safely. To make the descent safe and easy our climbing guides team fix ropes for you. Therefore the abseil on the rocky crest and compact blue glacier ice sections totally safe. We provide all the personal and group climbing gear to make it hassle free and affordable climbing trip in Himalayas.

Crossing the Amphu Laptch pass with twin peaks climbing in the Himalaya

We take the longer route to Mera peak base camp through the lush forests of rhododendron and pine. 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. Further more 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 tough Amphu Labtsa pass at 5700 meters on our way to Island Peak. Undoubtedly the panoramic summit views are absolutely wonderful and will stay in your memory forever.

Finally we trek down to Lukla via Thyangboche monastery. We stay at local tea houses while trekking down from Island Peak to Lukla. This change of accommodation allow you can enjoy the relatively cosy comfort of 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 with Amphu Laptsa expedition to have extensive outdoor adventure skills with good trekking and hiking experience. Prior climbing experience is recommended and welcome but not mandatory as we will train you in all necessary climbing skills at base camps.
