Crossing the Amphulaptsa pass to Lobuche Peak
Before you get to Lobuche peak you walk through the uninhabited Hunku valley. This valley to the east of Mera Peak passes the amazing Chamlang mountain before moving towards Amphulaptsa base camp perched above a beautiful lake.
The lake is mostly frozen in the pre monsoon season. The Amphulaptsa pass is a mountaineering pass and requires previous mountaineering experience. After you cross the Ampulaptsa Pass at 5,815m there is a steep abseil and a steep traverse down to the valley floor.

Mera and Lobuche Peaks Training
We will spend 3 nights in Khare at 4,950m/ 16,240 feet giving us time go over the technical training for Mera, Amphulaptsa Pass, Lobuche peak alongside get further acclimatization for climbing up to 6,476m/ 21,246 feet. We will do some rope training, become completely comfortable with using ice axe, crampons, jumar, harness and abseiling using a figure of 8.
Climbing on Mera Peak is relatively straight forward but these skills will be needed for crossing the Amphulaptsa pass and Island peak summit day. These are the most difficult mountaineering days of the whole trip. Coming with abseiling/ rappelling experience is a must for this trip.
