Amphulapcha la Pass Trekking

Amphulapcha la Pass Trekking

Amphu Lapche pass combines with Mera peak superb trek takes us away from the more frequented trails leading from Everest, over a pass to the east. Entering Mera very sparsely inhabited Hunku Valley, we walk northwards through a beautiful high alpine environment, from Mera Peak (6476 meters) the highest trekking peak in Nepal towers over the valley. Traversing around to the north, we find a softer side, and from here the climb is equipment-free. It can be attempted if you have acclimatized well and have strong lungs. You will be rewarded by the view of four of the five highest mountains on earth standing proud over hundreds more peaks, many still unnamed.

Starting from Lukla hike to Mera base camp, after the Mera summit, the trail will follow crossing Mingbo La or Tashi Lapcha down to the Everest classic route to Chhukung or Pangboche, via Tyangboche Monastery. Next day trekking to Namche and down to Lukla. From Lukla either flight or all the way trekking to Jiri or Sallari and drive to/from Kathmandu.
