Amphu Laptsa & Mera Peak

The Amphu Laptsa Pass is a difficult pass in the Khumbhu region. The old civilization, monasteries and the welcoming Sherpa people of the region add on to the high Himalayas and assist in attracting tourists. The Amphu Laptsa trek borrows the features of a classic expedition.

The Mera peak lies in the southeast of the Everest.

Mera Peak (6476m.) is the highest trekking peak located in the Sagarmatha Zone. It is considered as an uncomplicated ascent. The first ascent to Mera Peak was made in 1953, May 20.  The Mera Peak trek is technically a straightforward ascent. So, nowadays, trekkers sought after Mera Peak. However, adjusting in the high attitude of Mera Peak becomes a challenge for some trekkers. From the Mera Peak, splendid panorama of Makalu, Kanchanjunga, Cho Oyu and Everest can be seen.
