Three peaks climbing in Nepal offers an excellent introduction to real Himalayan mountaineering by climbing three iconic peaks in a single trip. Mera Peak, Island Peak and Lobuche Peak are the most popular three peaks climbing in the Everest region. Highland Expeditions offer special Three Peaks Climbing trip that allows you to ascend Mera Peak, Island Peak and Lobuche Peak in a single itinerary.
An ultimate climbing holiday which includes an ascent of three 6000m peaks and traverse of Amphu Laptcha Pass at 5,700m. The trip provides a real Himalayan climbing experience with an opportunity to brush your mountaineering skills. We will begin our climb with Mera Peak and conclude with the Lobuche Peak traversing Amphu Lapcha Pass. The Pass links Mera with Chukung valley which is home to scenic Island Peak.
Three Peaks climbing journey begins and concludes at Lukla as we cover the full circuit of Mera and Khumbu Valley in 30 days. Initially, we progress towards Mera peak via Poiyan, Pangoma, Chetra Khola and slowly arrive at Khare taking more time. Our itinerary has been devised keeping plenty of acclimatization before arriving at Mera base camp. Our trek to Mera peak base camp involves a culturally stimulating journey through remote picturesque villages and forests, followed by a gentle climb to the summit.
From Mera, we head towards Island peak crossing the Amphu Laptcha pass, after the pass we enter the Everest region. Island Peak is more technical as compared to the Mera peak, with more glaciated terrain to negotiate, ladder crossing over the crevasse and steeper climbing over the ridge as we progress towards the summit.
From Island peak, we connect on the main busy trail of Everest base camp for 2 days as we make our way to our final climb, Lobuche East. Lobuche East is considered the toughest among these 3 peaks. The climb to the summit includes a 45-degree steep climb through snowy slopes and the terrain is steep, slippery and has icy rock slabs.
Mera Peak Climb [6,461m/21,193ft]
The highest trekking peak in Nepal, Mera Peak Climbing progresses through a non-technical route and thus Mera Peak Climb is for all of the adventure enthusiasts who have the will and determination to make the most out of their adventure in the Himalaya. All you will need is a good level of fitness and you are good to go. The climb rewards us with views of Makalu, Cho Oyu, Kanchenjunga and other peaks and mountains. Come and have three-sixty degree views of glistening mountains from one of the most stunning viewpoints in Nepal.

Island Peak Climb [6,189m/20,305ft]

Lobuche East Climb [6,119m/20,075ft]
We will accept the epic challenge of Lobuche at the end of the Three peaks climb as Lobuche Climb is going to be the toughest one. We will follow the trail stretching from the south ridge that will take us to the summit. Although challenging, the inexplicably beautiful views of Magical Mountains in Khumbu include the world’s highest Everest.

This was a great introduction for multiple days of climbing at high altitude. I joined Highland Expeditions for Three Peaks Climbing (Mera Peak, Island Peak and Lobuche Peak). We started with Mera Peak, crossed Amphu Lapcha pass before hitting Island peak and finally concluded with Lobuche East. I choose Highland Expeditions based on the itinerary of their climb and the details they provided me after our first exchange of emails. The approach/itinerary was well-tailored with more days for trek and acclimatization, safety was always a priority as our group was backed up with oxygen system, medical kit and a sat phone, everything on trip was included and taken care of. The guides were amazing, young, talented, caring, responsible, and knowledgeable which made it an unforgettable experience
All these certainly made a big contribution to my summiting and I imagine this was true of others also. April 2019 Climber
