Mera peak summit with Ama Lapcha pass trek is a thrilling and challenging trekking and mountaineering adventure in the Everest region of Nepal that combines both high- altitude trekking and climbing Mera peak, one of the highest trekking peaks, with a crossing of the technical Ama Lapcha Pass.

Mera peak is a mountain in the Khumbu region of Nepal and is one of the most popular trekking peaks in the country, offers a fantastic opportunity for trekkers with some mountaineering aspirations to experience the thrill of reaching a high altitude summit. The climb to the summit usually involves walking on glacier and ascending a gradual snow slope. The peak stands at an elevation of 6476 m and offers panoramic views of some of the world’s highest mountains, including Everest, Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu. The trek followed through stunning valleys, lush forests, and Sherpa villages.

The Ama Lapcha pass is a high mountain pass that requires mountaineering skills and experience to cross. It is a challenging and technical pass situated between the Ama Dablam (6812 m) and Kangtega (6782 m) mountains in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal. The Ama Lapcha pass reaches an elevation of around 5800 m. It offers impressive views and takes you to the remote Hinku valley, offering a unique and less crowded experience compared to other the more popular Everest base camp trek.
