Trip Details

The trek to Amphu Lapcha Pass goes through wilder upper Hongu valley. Amphu Lapcha is to be passed technically to Chukkung Valley. The crossing of the pass requires the use of technical climbing equipment and trekkers must be skilled in the use of this and be prepared. Amphu Lapcha Pass holds the views of Himalayas and hearty scenery of lakes Hongu lakes and Panch Pokhari lakes.
Most commonly visited as a two week trek starting and finishing at Lukla. After 40 minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins from the beginning. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting among the mountain people also known as Sherpa staying at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything is organized in conjunction with local Sherpa guides.

While passing Buddhist monasteries views of Everest get closer every day. Acclimatizing is very important so we will have rest days in the villages of Namche and Dingboche that will allow us to explore the region and acclimatize. Although this trek is called Everest Base Camp Trek, our goal is the summit of Kalapattar at an elevation of 5553 meters, which is higher than Everest Base Camp. After trekking to Kalapattar we return at our leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our return flight to Kathmandu. For the more adventurous trekkers you have the option of returning over the Cho La pass to the Gokyo valley, and then ascending Gokyo Ri. Or if you are really fit, you can attempt the summit of Island Peak.
