At 3500 meters, Lamjura La is the highest point of your trek from Jiri to
Lukla and whether you are walking or flying to Lukla, you will have to pass
through this mountain pass. While flying into Lukla, this pass has the
reputation of being very turbulent. And while walking into Lukla, this pass is
notorious for the highly changeable weather. It might be all sunshine and
icecreams in the morning, and by early afternoon you might be facing a
whiteout. Prepare accordingly. Think sunglasses, rain gear and warm clothing.
When you reach Lamjura, smile. This place signals the end of that never-ending
uphill walk you started in Kinja. It is the perfect place to have a short
break and take a look back at the path you have been walking over the last few
days. Ahead of you towards the eastern side, you will see the valley you are
yet to walk.
Also, a quick word of advice if you are headed to Pikey peak, your path veers
to the right just before you reach Himalayan Lodge.
