Trekking is an adventure activity that offers something for everyone, from beginners to seasoned trekkers. The Mera Peak Amphu Lapcha and Island Peak climbing, organized by Himalaya Land Treks, is a journey that offers a unique and thrilling experience, as it takes you to two of the most stunning peaks in the Everest region - Mera Peak (6,461m) and Island Peak (6,189m).
The Mera Amphu Lapcha and Island Peak Climbing is considered one of the best climbing packages available, as it offers a bundle of adventure within a single trek. This popular destination is ideal for trekkers who love solitude and adventure.
Connecting the two peaks is the challenging Amphu Lapcha La Pass, located at an altitude of 5,845m. This pass is one of the most difficult Himalayan passes around the Khumbu Region, making it unsuitable for beginners or intermediate trekkers. The journey takes you through the high Himalayas, which will test every skill set of the trekkers.
The major attractions of this trek include the Amphu Lapcha Pass routeway, which is elevated at an altitude of 5,845m. The pass is a glaciated pass situated in the Honku valley and is crossed by mountaineers while making their way to Island Peak. The route way to Amphu Lapcha takes you through a marvelous path with pristine views of nature. You will also get an opportunity to experience the unique Sherpa culture, their tradition, and ethnic villages.
Mera Peak is another highlight of this trek. The bold and beautiful peak, elevated at an altitude of 6476m, is located inside Everest, Barun, and Hinku. Mera Peak is one of the most-climbed small peaks in Nepal, with three main summits - Mera North, Mera Central, and Mera South. From the summit, you can enjoy spectacular scenery of Everest and the Barun valley, including majestic vistas of Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Nuptse, and Baruntse.
Island Peak, also known as Imja Tse, is a mountain peak located inside the Khumbu region with an elevation of 6,189m above sea level. The name Island Peak was given by the members of the British Mount Everest Expedition team in 1953, as the mountain appeared like an island in the sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Island Peak Climbing is the best option for beginners to gain experience in peak climbing. From the peak, you are rewarded with amazing views of Mt. Everest, Pumo Ri, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and many more.
The best time to do this trek is during the autumn (September-November) and spring (March-May) seasons when the weather conditions are favorable. Winter (December-February) and monsoon (June-August) seasons experience adverse weather conditions, making the flights to/from Lukla often delayed and cancelled. Trekkers should allocate a few extra days as buffer days during these seasons.
