Trip Introduction:

Mera Peak with Amphu Labtsa Pass is the most adventurous trekking peak in Nepal that stands within the Mahalangur section of the Everest region. The Mera Peak is one of the highest Trekking peaks of Nepal categorized by NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association). There are three different faces of Mera Peak; Mera central face at 6,461m/21,198ft altitude, Mera north face at 6,476m/21,247ft altitude, and Mera South face at 6,065m/19,898ft altitude where the popular Mera Peak Climbing is Mera central Peak and remainder of the faces aren't that popular.

 

Mera Peak is situated within the Makalu Barun park on the border of the Khumbu region. At 6476m it's the very best of the Nepal Trekking Peaks, and commands one among the simplest viewpoints in Nepal; there are panoramic views taking in, among others, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cho Oyo, Kanchenjunga, Ama Dablam, Chamlang and Baruntse. Climbers will get to make use of crampons to form the ascent. They will carry an extended ice ax for support and can be roped to a guide across the glacier on summit day. First-time users of those aids are going to be given instruction on their use below base camp. The ascent from the Mera La is gradual and sustained, before reaching a brief. But straightforward climb up a 40-degree slope to Mera’s central summit. Note that the marginally higher North Summit could be heavily crevassed. Hence, expeditions will currently head for the Central Summit nearby (6461m).

 

On the way to Mera Peak with Amphu Labtsa Pass you will discover the upper Honggu. This may be a true mountain wilderness where you're unlikely to satisfy many other trekkers. Therefore the character of the terrain is markedly different from the Mera approach route. The valley is high and open, fringed with broad moraines and sharp white peaks, making this a neighborhood of bright light and changing color, and an exquisite place to camp. The precipitous crest of the Amphu Lapcha has got to be one of the foremost dramatic crossings within the Himalaya. Ascended with the protection of fixed ropes over straightforward icefall, you emerge onto an airy promontory, with the bottom simply sweeping far away from your feet into the deep Imja Khola Valley — the vast wall of Lhotse, with Everest peaking over its left shoulder, rears abreast of the other side, dwarfing the apparently diminutive Island Peak within the foreground. The descent requires a brief abseil to a broad snow terrace. Although the pass is at a lower altitude than Mera Peak, it's trickier due to steepness. Once over the Amphu Lapcha, you enter the Sagarmatha park, and therefore the whole character of the terrain changes again.

 

Your return to Lukla is via the Imja Khola and Dudh Koshi river valleys. Along which the quality approach to Everest is formed. You’ll enjoy the majestic panorama of the side of Ama Dablam (6856m), and undergo interesting settlements like Tengboche, which features a prominent monastery, and Namche Bazaar, which has an addictive buzz of pleasure, whether heading up or heading down. Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing made the first climbing of Mera peak 6,461m on 20th May 1953AD.
