An exhilarating mountaineering expedition to Mera Peak (6476m/21,246ft) and Island Peak (6189m/20,305ft), two of the most popular trekking peaks in Nepal, combined with a crossing of the Amphu Labsta.. Mera (6476m/21,246ft) & Island Peak (6189m/20,305ft) are two of the most popular trekking peaks in the Nepal Himalaya and this expedition combines climbs on both mountains with a trek through the remote Honku Valley and a crossing of the spectacular and technical Amphu Laptsa Pass. The generous itinerary ensures proper acclimatisation and we have plenty of contingency days in the event of inclement weather. Being slightly to the south of the main range, Mera offers spectacular views from Kanchenjunga in the east to the Langtang region in the west. Island Peak is situated right in the heart of the Khumbu area and although it is dwarfed by the enormous Lhotse Face to the north, the views from the summit are truly exceptional.

Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel.

When is the best time to summit Island Peak?
The ideal time for climbing Island Peak is around April to May and October through November. The winter and the monsoon months will likely have fewer crowds but wet weather and snow and cold may make the climb more challenging. Some tours do not ever offer climbing in these months. Your guide will have enough knowledge about the weather and geography to advise the exact right time while you are on tour as well.
