We left on a clear, cold windless moonlit night. The head torch was not event necessary. Our entire group of 11 summited along with our three Sherpa and our cook. It was an amazing day with incredible views of Chomolungma. After being to the summit of a Himalayan peak you are changed forever….

Terrible Weather encountered during most of this expedition and thus no views on the Summit. Summit spoiled by death (heart attack) of another climber on the summit.

My first 6000m-peak. Straightforward glacier climb, but the altitude does make things harder. VERY nice view on the Himalayas!

Summited via normal route. Camps at Mera La, 5400 m. and high camp 5800 m. Very cold during the night. Did not get to the main summit due to crevasse blocking the way just short of summit.

Base Camp at Khare, High Camp and then to the Summit.

We were the second group that Autumn to reach the summit. Travelled with a lovely Spanish couple whom we met on the way.

Summit day was very windy I remember( have video footage to remind me!). However the sky was clear and the snow hard. It was an awesome day and one I enjoyed immensely.

Tougher than I was expecting but a nice climb (spoiled slightly by a bad chest infection). Recommended for anyone wanting their first experience above 6K.

Beautiful trek - traveled with Camp 5 Expeditions. Highly recomended. The trek up the Hongu Valley to the Amphu Lapscha Pass is stunning.

normal route from Hongu valley  Sucess!

It was the highlight of my trekking tour through the Khumbu (with a group of a german organization), after climbing Island Peak and crossing Amphu Labtsa pass. Well acclimatized we started at 3 a.m. at our camp 100 m beneath Mera La Pass at about 5300 m. First a long walk in beautiful moonlight, then after sunrise nice views to all directions. The long ascent to the summit plateau is very exhausting. There were no footprints to the very summit of Mera Central so eventually we were the first party in this fall season to reach it. The last 10 meters are exposed and steep (45 degrees) and require some experience. On our descent through the Hinku valley we met many parties. Lodges are being built. so it seems that Mera Peak is becoming a very popular mountain

Route Climbed: Khare - Mera La - High Camp 5800m - Summit Date Climbed: 10th November 2001  Sucess!

Snowed in Khare (Later found it had snowed down to Lukla). High Camp at 5800m was cold and very windy. Reached summit about 0915. Although windy the sky was clear but was very cold. Left Irish Flag at top (don't want it returned thanks). 7 out of original group of 12 made it to the summit. Travelled with KE Adventure and couldn''t say enough good things about them. Group nationalities were Irish (4), English (3) and U.S (5).
