Mera peak rises to a height of 6,476 meters and is located south of Everest in the densely forested Hinku valley. A genuinely outstanding perspective of the semi-circle Nuptse Sher in the north, Cho Polo, and Makalu in the east surrounds the Island Peak portion of the south ridge of Lhotse Sher in the center of the Khumbu region. Baruntse, Amphu, and Ama Dablam are to the south. Mera Peak is less technical than Island Peak yet involves the climb through steep passes and up a challenging summit. In addition, Island Peak's ascent is comparatively more difficult than Mera's due to its steeper ascent route.

The Mera and Island peak climbing via Amphu Labsta offers mountaineering to two well-known peaks in the Himalayas. This expedition is particularly difficult and unique because it involves climbing the twin peaks of Mera and Island as well as traversing the difficult and high Amphu Labsta pass in Nepal.

    Welcome to the kingdom of Nepal in the Himalayas. After completing customs and immigration procedures, a representative from Nepal Trek Adventure will be waiting for you as you leave the airport. Then you will be welcomed, greeted, and driven in a private conveyance to the hotel in the center of Thamel, a very charming location in the center of the city. There will be a meeting and orientation event later that evening after check-in at the hotel. You are then free to settle yourself and take a look around your lively surroundings. Our helpful staff is here to offer any support or guidance.

      After breakfast today, we have a full day of sightseeing planned in the Kathmandu Valley, visiting the most important historical, cultural, and religious sites nearby. The tour guide helps us explore the holy Hindu Pashupatinath Temple, one of the largest Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva in the world, the well-known Swyambhunath "Monkey Temple," an ancient religious complex perched atop a hill in the Kathmandu Valley, and the Buddhist shrine Buddhanath, the oldest and tallest stupa in the world that dominates the skyline. Following the tour, there will be a briefing on the trip, an introduction to the guide, and a last check of the climbing gear for the trek to ensure that everyone is ready for the exhilarating trip that lies ahead.

        After an early-morning dramatic flight to Lukla, a mountain airfield and the starting point is one of the most breathtaking flights over the white Nepali Himalayas and other natural landscapes. One of the most picturesque flight paths in the entire globe, it ends with a landing on a hillside surrounded by tall mountains. After a quick 40-minute flight, we touch down in Lukla, where our trek to Mera begins. The rest of the Mera peak teams will be waiting for us when we get here, and we'll start our trailhead traveling eastwards and higher above the breathtaking Dudh Khosi, departing for the crowded trail to Everest Base The trek continues via small towns and woodland areas until we arrive to a dense forest of Silver fir, birch pastures, and rhododendron and pine forests. The entire region, which is known as Chutang and is a summer pasture, has various little streams and places to stop along the way. After reaching Chutang we rest, acclimatize, and explore the local communities over the rest of the day.

          There is a sense of unspoiled isolation as we enter the Hinku valley from the Khumbu valley today after a strenuous trek via the Kalo Himal Ridge in the Nau Lekh range. A lengthy, steep ascent marked by an old collection of Buddhist chortens can be seem enroute. We keep moving forward till we reach Zatrwa La pass (4610m), where we are greeted in the traditional Buddhist manner with prayer flags. After celebrating our first pass, the views across the Dudh Kosi towards Karyolung and the Lumding Himal are quite stunning on a clear day. In addition, we catch our first look at the surroundings across the rolling Hinku River Valley slopes. We travel less than an hour from here to Thuli Karkha, where we enjoyed one well night of rest.

            The national flower of Nepal, the rhododendron, can be seen all over the beautiful hills on that magnificent day. The journey is short and downhill. The trek travels around slopes above the Hinku Valley and offers stunning views of Mera Peak's South Face. A nice walk takes you from Kothe all the way up to the Hinku River through lovely woods of Himalayan pine, rhododendron, and bamboo. Upon reaching our today destination we will explore the area and rest for the day.

              Today, as we continue to trek along the Ridge of Hinku, we make our way into the high Himalayan peaks. It is at this point that we first notice and enjoy the river stream view of our destination, which is bordered by other towering mountains like Mera Peak. Excellent views of Kyashar (6,769m) and Kusum Kanguru are visible (6,367m). The first part of the walk takes us along a rocky track that borders the river as we steadily and gradually rise up the valley. Later, ascend to the yak pastures (kharka) that are above river level. On the west side of the Hinku Drangka, where we pass through the Gondishung, there is a summer herders' settlement and an old monastery that are worth visiting. We make a long hike to get to Thagnang, a summer grazing area with few basic lodges and small shops.
               

                Our climb begins in the direction of Khare and travels east. As we ascend, we take our time to acclimate and take in the surrounding beauty. The breathtaking vistas of the neighboring peaks continue to unfold as you ascend the difficult lateral moraine of Dig Glacier for 2.5 hours to walk across the wide pasture of Dig Khraka. After that, the trip is a difficult ascent across moraines to reach the termini of the Hinku Nup and Shar Glaciers. Over the course of just over an hour, we cross the stream and travel the trail across the boulder-strewn hillside. After a difficult ascent, we reach Khare, from where we have a stunning view of Mera Peak and stay overnight at lodges
                 

                  Before continuing, we have today off to acclimate, explore, and practice the basics of ice climbing with the help of our knowledgeable climbing guide. After breakfast, we ascend a difficult slope to the beginning of the Mera Glacier before continuing on to the Mera La pass. Here, we'll use the chance to organize a session on the glacier and put into practice the abilities required for traveling on glaciers. We start by teaching proper crampon, rope, and ice axe methods. After that, we'll teach you how to climb peaks and how to use climbing tools like an ice axe, climbing boots, crampons, a harness, an ascender, etc. Also, instructions on using the ropes to ascend and descend will be provided. This aids with our summit of Mera preparation. Although prior experience or skills are not required for this journey to Mera Peak Base Camp, we truly believe that having some will raise your self-assurance and your climbing abilities to increase your chances of reaching the summit as well as fully enjoying the adventure. We go back to Khare later in the day to spend the night.

                    Today will be exciting as it will feel like the first day of mountaineering since it will take three hours to ascend to Mera La over a glacier along a trail that is filled with boulders. After arriving at the glacier's snout, we properly prepare by donning our mountaineering boots, harness, crampons, and ice axes. We'll be able to put our newly acquired crampon and ice axe skills while ascending the glacier. The night is spent camped here before the next day's ascent to Mera's high camp. The first mountaineering experience and views from the pass are breathtaking. We first ascend to the Mera La (5,410m), return up the ridge, and then descend to the back of the Mera base camp where we will spend the night.

                      We leave base camp today and travel up a steep, rocky trail to high camp, which is located at a height of 5,800 meters. It serves as an excellent starting point for the last climbs to the top. After crossing the Mera La, the trail turns left (south) and proceeds up gently sloping snow slopes. A little distance later, a region of crevasses is reached. Under normal circumstances, these are relatively easy to follow, however looking into their scary, black depths is always impressive. The crevasses eventually give way to open, slightly steeper snow slopes that lead directly to the high camp. When we arrive at the High Camp, we are blessed with spectacular panoramic views of Everest, Makalu, and the Nuptse, Lhotse wall up ahead. These magnificent mountains receive an incredible magical light from the setting sun. The majority of the summit route is also visible to us. Later we have a good night's rest in order to get ready for the summit bid tomorrow.

                        We start our journey to the summit of Mera Peak early in the morning with steaming mugs of tea. We go slowly and steadily as we climb the Mera glacier; the terrain is straightforward.  the route remains simple as we slowly but steadily ascend higher into the increasingly thin air. Early in the morning, an attempt will be made to reach the summit from the high camp, and it will take 4 to 6 hours to get there. The sun's early rays cast a stunning red glow over the tall peaks. Depending on the circumstances, we might attach to a fixed rope at the base of the last steep summit cone. Only a few meters separate us from the summit. The summit itself is just around the corner, the goal for which we have all worked so hard. Behind the ridge, the slope becomes steeper, and the peak is once again visible. One of the most amazing and breathtaking views of Makalu (8481m), Baruntse (7129m), Haling (7319m), and NauLekh (6360m) can be seen in the 360-degree panorama. Although we are deep within this breathtaking alpine panorama, we are yet far enough back so that the views are not obstructed by the smaller peaks. take our time taking it all in before making the about two-hour descent back to Khare, where we will spend the night at the lodge. It's been a long day, but it's been worthwhile.

                          In case of weather-related or acclimatization-related issues, we have set aside an additional day as a backup or contingency day. This extra day provides considerable flexibility and can be used to attempt the summit again. This day serves as a backup in case of any other delays, like the flight from Lukla. This day is spent preparing for the following day's hike if everything goes according to plan and you succeed in climbing on the summit day. In Kathmandu, this day will be used as a free day if it is not needed as a backup plan.Reserve Day

                            We trek today across the isolated valley of the top yak pastures of this after a successful expedition to Mera mountain. We will get a magnificent view of the Himalayan valley along the way. Realizing that the two gorgeous mountains we are traveling directly towards are none other than Everest and Lhotse is almost shocking. After reaching Seto Pokhari we will rest for the day

                              Reach Amphu Labsta base camp via trekking over the remote high-altitude Himalayas. Even during the busiest travel season, we hardly ever run into other hikers on this route. We climb steeply just beyond White Lake, the first of several lakes that fill the upper Honku Basin. Experience the Honku Valley's wild landscape. The Honku Valley is a pure mountain wilderness, with Chamlang (7321m) on the right and hanging glaciers on its south-west and northwest flanks.

                                We begin our ascent from the south base camp of Amphu Labsta to the north base camp of Amphu Labsta very early in the morning across the steep sections of rock and ice to take the pass when the snow is solid before the sunlight melts the snow. Wherever it seems necessary, climbing ropes will likely be used. The final ascent to Amphu Labsta winds among snow shovels. A challenging descent down fixed lines to the moraine is lying on the other side.

                                  The route we'll take today is a downward route along the moraine that leads to Chukkung, where the Island Peak hike begins. We are now exposed to the Khumbu Region's civilization from the wilderness of the isolated Hinku Valley. A little above Pangboche Village, the Imja Khola enters the Dudh Koshi river. At Pangboche, there is a well-known monastery that is believed to be the oldest in the Khumbu region. After several long days of hard hiking and trekking, it is a thrill to arrive at Pangboche. The lodges in this active village offer a warm welcome that is, in our opinion, well-deserved.

                                    Despite the need for a rest day to allow for proper acclimatization, we take advantage of this time to prepare for the climb with the help of a Sherpa climbing guide. Training sessions on peak climbing techniques and the proper use of climbing equipment, including harnesses, boots with crampons, and climbing ropes will be hosted. It is not necessary to have prior training to climb over Island Peak. These training opportunities will undoubtedly improve climbers' confidence, refine their climbing techniques, and increase their chances of reaching the peak. However, people who are undertaking their first expedition may find the training to be extremely beneficial.

                                      As we go from Chukung up an open valley with breathtaking scenery and mountain views, it will be another reasonably simple day. Along the glacial moraine of the ImjaTsho glacier lake, we gradually ascend to base camp. Spend the night at a campsite.

                                        Today, we start our climb early in the morning, using a flashlight to illuminate the rocky track that leads through a rocky gorge to the glacier pass at the peak. When necessary, our guide will use ice axes and crampons to secure a rope into crevasses in the glacier. We proceed in the direction of the guide. The path is generally clear and ascends snow canyons and rock bands before descending to a tiny plateau, where we may stop to rest and soak in the first rays of dawn. We'll see a stunning sunrise from the glacier's edge. Before crossing an exhilarating ridge to the top, there is a short steep snow slope. Being on the summit is a memorable experience. We will have time to enjoy ourselves for successfully reaching the top, taking in the breathtaking mountain panoramas, and taking as many photos as we like before returning to Base Camp. We travel all the way down to Chhukung to spend the night.

                                          This backup day was planned on the itinerary in case the previous day's attempt to summit Island Peak was unsuccessful due to poor weather, acclimatization challenges, or other factors. The day will be cut short in accordance with the changes to the plan if the journey is trouble-free and goes without a glitch.

                                            We will have a relaxing breakfast in Chukung before traveling through Dingboche and ending up in Tengboche. We take it easy today after our exhausting effort yesterday. We'll spend one more night close to the monastery, where we'll enjoy fantastic views of AmaDablam and other sights. You can also visit the Tengboche monster and enjoy the local food and people’s company.

                                              From Tengboche, we make our way back to Namche by retracing our route. We descend first to cross the Dudh Kosi River, then ascend to the village of Namche. Rest of the day, explore the areas, and shops and interact with the local people, know about their culture, tradition, and lifestyle. Enjoy the variety of delicious food and rest for the day.

                                                This will be the last day we spend on the trekking trails, and as we make our way back down the Dudh Koshi valley, it will be a long but satisfying day. The scenery will be completely different when looking in this direction. We eventually arrive at the large town of Lukla, which has an airport, from which we will fly back to Kathmandu the next day. You will find many shops, hotels, and lodges with many services. Enjoy the day exploring the places and saty overnight at the hotel

                                                  Normally, if everything goes according to plan, the flight to Kathmandu is scheduled to depart in the morning. We have one final opportunity to take a close look at the majestic, snow-capped Himalayas in the distance during the scenic morning flight back to Kathmandu and bid the mountains farewell. Your guide will transport you to the hotel after your arrival in Kathmandu. The rest of the day is yours to do as you like to relax, recharge, and even go out and see more of the city before the group's final evening of celebrating with a special dinner.

                                                    Till your next visit, you bid Kathmandu and Nepal farewell. As you make your way back home, you will reflect on the incredible experiences you had and hope you will make plans for your upcoming vacation in the wonderful nation of Nepal.

                                                    Our team guides, porters and accompanying staff are locals with a broad knowledge about each and every location that we travel through.

                                                    Mera Peak and Island Peak Climbing Difficulty

                                                    The difficulty of any treks or climbs into the Himalayas varies depending on a number of variables. This strenuous trek takes place in the Everest region's rough terrain. You will go more than 5100m for nearly a week (approximately 5 days). You'll be climbing Island Peak (6476) and Mera Peak (6476m) (6189m). The Amphu Labsta pass (5700m), a challenging technical crossing, will also be present. In addition to staying in tea houses, you will set up the tent in the surrounding snow. The adventures at Mera Peak, Amphu Labsta, and Island Peak are all different.

                                                    In conclusion: It is a relatively hard trek so having previous climbing experience can be beneficial. For beginners, this trek can be very difficult. For this expedition, you need to be physically and mentally fit.

                                                    Mera Peak and Island Peak Climbing Duration

                                                    The entire Mera peak and  Island Peak Climbing via Amphu Labsta Pass takes an average of 25 days. This is the time frame that experts advise for the trek. This also involves the days of acclimatization. The days of your arrival and departure from Lukla are included in your total duration. This expedition can be completed in fewer days. However, traveling for fewer days increases the danger of high altitude sickness and physical and mental weariness.

                                                    For this journey, it is best to pick a minimum length of 25 days. The longer you take to acclimatize in high altitude the better your health will be.

                                                    Permits for Mera Peak and Island Peak Climbing 

                                                    Permits are required to cross the restricted and conservation areas. To complete this Expedition, you will require the following permits.

                                                    • Local (Everest Region) Area Permit
                                                    • Island Peak climbing permit
                                                    • Mera Peak climbing permit

                                                    All these permits can be obtained from Kathmandu. Your company will get it for you before the trek.

                                                    Distance for Mera and Island Peak Climbing via Amphu Labsta pass

                                                    The overall distance to the Mera Amphu Labsta Island Peak may vary depending on the route you take. This ascent typically covers a distance of 72 kilometers. For most of the walk, you will be trekking at heights exceeding 5000 meters.

                                                    Your body may suffer from the high altitudes and daily walks. To aid your body in adjusting to the altitude, make sure you have a sufficient number of acclimation days. Never rush; always go at your own pace.

                                                    Compared to walking at lower elevations, walking at these altitudes can be more demanding.

                                                    Accommodation during Mera and Island Peak Climbing

                                                    Your possibilities for lodging in Kathmandu are virtually endless. You have a selection of 3- to 4-star hotels, basic lodges, and even hostels. You will stay in simple lodges or tea houses after leaving Lukla. They offer the most basic amenities. You have the option of a single bedroom or a shared room. The rooms come with a bed, mattress, blanket, and pillow as a bare minimum. On the trails, the chances of using communal, shared restrooms are high. You will spend the night in tents between Mera Peak High Camp and Island Peak Base Camp.

                                                    Meals for Mera Amphu Labsta Island Peak Climbing

                                                    Your options are more limited after Lukla. You can choose from things like dal-bhat-tarkari (lentils, steamed rice, seasonal vegetables). Additionally, you can choose among noodle dishes, dumplings, flatbreads, potatoes, and meats (fried, boiled, seasoned). You can choose from a variety of hot and cold flavored beverages, tea, and coffee. Do try regional food, such as fried bread, mushroom soup, and butter tea.

                                                      Our guide was very friendly, cooperative, and experienced. Our trek starts from Kathmandu completed smoothly. we had spare days for acclimatization which helped us a lot in climbing. The NTA team also helped us in preparing our gear and provided us the technical knowledge about the climb which was very useful.
