Mera Peak & Island Peak via Amphu Laptsa Pass

Posted in 2nd Nov, 2011

I had the most amazing experience of trekking and climbing to Mera Peak and Island Peak via Amphu Laptsa Pass. There were 4 of us in the group, 3 guys and myself. As a person, Ang is truly a great Sherpa, his knowledge and the way he talks about his beloved Khumbu area, and his culture and the mountains are truly inspiring and he loves sharing this information with you. He is a great person and very professional as a leader. His decisions are made carefully with thought not haste, his attention to detail, handling of a few unforeseen circumstances, and the respect he has for his team was very admirable. His vast experience with climbing gave great comfort in the middle of nowhere, I didn’t feel I had to rush or to keep up at any time, he was very patient, helpful and caring We were very fortunate to have Ang sing for us and keep us entertained with music which he bought along. In the middle of nowhere in the freezing cold – how lucky were we to have entertainment. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ang as a leader for group treks or individual trekking and climbing – you will be guaranteed of a wonderful memorable journey.
