An ultimate climbing holiday which includes an ascent of three 6000m peaks and traverse of Amphu Laptcha Pass at 5,700m. The trip provides a real Himalayan climbing experience with an opportunity to brush your mountaineering skills. We will begin our climb with Mera Peak and conclude with the Lobuche Peak traversing Amphu Lapcha Pass. The Pass links Mera with Chhukung valley which is home to scenic Island Peak. Therefore, Three Peaks climbing journey begins and concludes at Lukla as we cover the full circuit of Mera and Khumbu Valley in 30 days. Initially, we progress towards Mera peak via Poiyan, Pangoma, Chetra Khola and slowly arrive at Khare taking more time. Our itinerary has been devised keeping plenty of acclimatization before arriving at Mera base camp. Our trek to Mera peak base camp involves a culturally stimulating journey through remote picturesque villages and forests, followed by a gentle climb to the summit.
From Mera, we head towards Island peak crossing the Amphu Laptcha pass, after the pass we enter the Everest region. Island Peak is more technical as compared to the Mera peak, with more glaciated terrain to negotiate, ladder crossing over the crevasse and steeper climbing over the ridge as we progress towards the summit. Likewise From Island peak, we connect on the main busy trail of Everest base camp for 2 days as we make our way to our final climb, Lobuche East. Lobuche East is considered the toughest among these 3 peaks. The climb to the summit includes a 45-degree steep climb through snowy slopes and the terrain is steep, slippery and has icy rock slabs.
Ascent of Mera Peak [6,461m/21,193ft]
The highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera Shikhar Arohan proceeds through a non-technical route and hence Mera Shikhar Arohan is for all adventure enthusiasts who have the desire and determination to get the most out of their adventure in the Himalayas.

Island Peak Climb [6,189m/20,305ft]
Climbing Island Peak requires technical skills as the route takes us over rocks, cliffs and glaciers. We have to climb through a steep section to reach the summit where we can get a view of Lhotse, Amadablam and surrounding peaks and mountains.
Lobuche East Ascent [6,119m/20,075ft]
We will take on the epic challenge of Lobuche at the end of the three peak climb as the Lobuche climb is going to be the toughest.
