Seen from the pass the mountain is an attractive but straightforward snow peak with a well defined ridge rising from the relative flat, crevassed glacier. From the high camp near the Tashilapcha cross wide, crevassed snow slopes to gain the ride of Pacharmo, rising from the broken glacier of the pass. The ridge is followed with little difficulties, although in some conditions crevasses might give problems towards the summit. Several parties have reported a difficult ice step caused by a large crevasse about 300 ft from the summit.
Nayakanga Peak Climbing: Naya Kanga peak lies in Langtang region which is widely popular destination for climbing snow peaks. This peak has great spectacular panoramic views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet. Novice and experienced trekkers equally enjoy ascends and descends of this region and can be easily accessed.
Naya Kanga peak climbing is major attraction for most of the climbers because of the moderate difficulty to climb this mountain. The peak rises to the west of the Ganja La (5,122m). The simple route for this peak climbing is via the north-east ridge. Moving further over ice and snow, route of Langtang trek to Kyangjin Ri (3,749 meters) takes to the ascent of Naya Kanga.

Mera Peak Climbing: Mera peak is popular one or the popular trekking peaks in Nepal which rises to the south of Everest. The straightforward peak will, sometimes, be longer to trek because of the heavy snow and crevasses. Since the trek to Mera peak begins from Lukla, it will be the unforgettable experience to pass through the dense forests in hill sides.
Alternative routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the Mingbo La (5,871m) are more adventurous and have more spectacular scenery but the problem is this route is a little bit difficult.
To start climbing, the base camp should be set up at 5,300m on the Hongu side or camp can be set higher at 5,800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera glacier. The higher camp has more glorious panoramic viewpoints of giant peaks such as Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse from the east and Amadablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west. Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse add more viewpoints to observe in the north.
Mainly three summits of Mera peak are climbable without much difficulty. Those summits are South summit (6,065m), Northern Summit (6,476m) and Central Summit (6,461m). Northern summit is easier to climb than South. Central summit is the highest summit following snow ridge to its top.
Chulu West peak (6584m) to the north of the Annapurna range is an ideal summit for those wanting to extend their climbing experience beyond the trekking peaks of the Everest region. It is also and ideal peak on which to develop expeditionary style experience as members will play an active role in establishing the intermediary camps on the mountain.
Mera peak(6,476m/21,246ft) and Island Peak (6,189m/20,305ft) are both highly sought after summits in their own right. Although geographically fairly close together, they are separated by the formidable mountain chain dividing the Hongu and Khumbu Valleys. This expedition provides a rare opportunity for climbers to attempt both peaks, linking them with a crossing of the difficult, yet stunning Amphu Labtsa Pass (5,780m/18,963ft). This has proved to be a very popular expedition as it provides a unique opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful and remote valleys in Nepal combined with a high altitude climbing programme, which takes participants through a progressive range of mountaineering skills. To give potential team members greater flexibility in planning their annual leave, we have departures in the spring (pre-monsoon) and in the autumn (post-monsoon).
We have extended this expedition by one day to a total of 30 days. This gives the leader flexibility in running the expedition and allows a greater margin for the vagaries of the weather and individual acclimatisation. It also provides time for a rest after crossing the Amphu Labtsa, so that batteries can be re-charged before Island Peak is attempted.
