Sherpa Ascent
Mera Peak, Amphu Cross, and Kalapatar

Mera Peak, at the lofty height of 6476m, is Nepal's highest trekking peak and boasts an absolutely stunning summit panorama that includes five of the world's 8000m peaks- Kangchenjunga, Makalu,Lhotse, Everest and Cho Oyu.

After a spectacular mountain flight from Kathmandu, our trek will begin by heading southeast from Lukla. We will walk along a high rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us from the Khumbu into the Hinku Valley. Trekking and camping in this wild land of abundant rhododendron and Himalayan pine forests is indeed an impressive experience. At Tangnag, we will rest and explore the huge moraine and the beautiful glacial lake north of the village. We will have the option to climb Mera Peak, first climbed in May 1953.

We will continue north through the uninhabited Hunku Valley with constant views of magnificent mountains. After several days camping beside the lovely lakes Dudh and Panch Pokhare we'll climb over Amphu Lapcha (5778m). We will make our way to Dingboche, then Lobuche and along the moraine to the base of Kalapater (5544m).

You will have the option of climbing this "Black Rock" for a panoramic view of some of the world's highest mountains. As we make our way back to Lukla via Namche Bazaar and Phakding, you will have completed one of the more demanding trekking routes in Nepal.
