# Mera Amphulapcha Pass - (25 Days)
Mera Amphulapcha Pass
This is an expedition that involves climbing of Mera Peak-6461m, which is attempted, from Hungu valley in the Everest region with Amphulapcha Pass. We will walk along the high, rocky ridge through dense forests and across several streams before reaching the pass that will take us from the Khumbu into the Hinku Valley. Trekking and camping in this wild land of abundant rhododendron and Himalayan pine forests is indeed an impressive experience.
Mera peak is considered one of the major and popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The trail winds among forests of pine and rhododendron in this remote and uninhabited valley, which leads to Mera Base Camp. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit. Besides the charm of climbing Mera Peak, the trek to its base camp from Lukla is rewarding for experiencing little-visited and as yet un-spoilt region of Nepal with densely forested hillsides. There are several approaches to the base camp besides the easy and normal route, which is mentioned below. The routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the Mingbo La (5,871m) provide some the most adventurous trekking with spectacular scenery through remote glaciated valleys and pass.
