Welcome to Gurla Mandata
Mera Peak with Amphulapcha La Pass and island Peak (6476m).
Mera Peak with Amphulapcha La Pass and island Peak (6476m). After summit Mera (6476m) continue over Mera La pass and drop into the majestically beautiful Hunku Valley. Moreover, trekking groups rarely visit the valley. Hukku Valley is wide open, remote and truly wonderful valley. For several days we walk northwards and encounter many glacial lakes. They are likely to be frozen solid which allows us to walk right over the top of them. Our last camp spot before the pass is Panch Pokhari (5 lakes). It is an exposed alpine expanse where you feel awed and humbled by your amazing surround.
Amphulapcha pass is a difficult and demanding pass, but guides will be there to help and encourage you all the way .We start by climbing up rocky scree and approach some magnificent pristine glacial formations. You may need to be cut ice steps and fix the ropes to assist everyone up onto the glacier. Depending on conditions, you may need crampons to climb the final snow slope to the narrow pass itself.
The view from here simply provides some of the most breathtaking alpine scenery. Furthermore, we are unlikely to have seen any other trekkers since leaving Mera La. The descent is steep and depending on conditions, you may involve being belayed part of the way down. At the end of a challenging but exhilarating day, our campsite is a lovely sheltered grassy area. It is a welcome spot for a rest. We descend to Chukhung and then into the Khumbu valley. Our itinerary takes in the beautiful Thyangboche Monastery and the colorful town of Namche Bazaar, before we finally arrive back to Lukla. Organized by Gurla mandata trekking.
