The Amphu Laptsa is a technical pass, which is rarely crossed, only few operators handle this adventure, we are one of them. It yields access to the upper Chukkung Valley. While crossing the high pass we work as a team and at times that member/climber initiate a responsibility in assisting accompanied porters up the steep snow and ice slopes and on the (305m) technical descent. Numerous rappels and fixed lines will be required. This may be one of the richest skill development opportunities on the expedition. The views from the Amphu Laptsa is amazing, you can see Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Makalu, Baruntse, Cho Oyu and Island Peak stretch all along the skyline.
The route from Lukla follows a trail made by local yak herders; there are small villages, stone huts and high pasture animal’s shades until Khare. The trail is pretty well defined though this is off the beaten path. In winter people and animals do not stay in these high regions. So local people and trekkers would very much less frequent the area throughout the trek. Walk slowly and gradually to higher elevation. In the schedule, walk-in is done slowly and an extra day for acclimatization days at Khare is planned before climbing to Mera la (5335m). Visit Hinku Nup glacier to the base of Kantega or help carry some food and equipment to high camp at Mera la. The day at Khare can be used to visit Hinku Nup glacier to the base camp of Kantega. Or, help carry some food and the necessary equipment to Mera La. Usually, we set up high camp above Mera la (pass) to help negotiate crevasses early in the morning, so next day climb would be easier. Though high camp may not be necessary, it can only be decided on the site. Mera peak has a twin summit. The view from the summit towards the high mountain peaks is the best anywhere.
This is a special trek for experienced trekkers, not for faint-hearted. Though climbing experience is not required it would be added advantage if you have done a basic climbing course. You travel through extreme land, traverse through snow condition and high pass for over two weeks. If you wish to include Island Peak 6160m, let us know in advance.
The trail from Mera to the Amphu Laptsa pass (5845m) takes you up the uninhabited Upper Hongu Valley. You will pass through the most remote and rugged terrain in the Khumbu region. This area is known as Panch Pokari, a chain of five glacially carved lakes.
After the ardous journey of Amphulaptsa, you trek through the villages of Dingboche, Pangboche and Dibouche. At Thyangboche Monastary, we will spend the morning visiting with the monks and enjoying the views of Everest and Ama Dablam. Enroute explore Namche bazzar which is the economic center of the Sherpas community.
