Meru Peak(Shark's Fin,6450m)

Meru Peak(Shark's Fin,6450m)

Meru, 6,660 m (21,850 ft), lies between Thalay Sagar and Shivling, and has some highly challenging routes, only recently ascended despite multiple attempts by the world's best climbers. Thalay Sagar, 6,904 m (22,651 ft), a steep rock spire, and perhaps the most difficult summit to attain in the entire group. Shivling, 6,543 m (21,467 ft), another steep rock peak, with two summits, and the most striking as viewed from Gaumukh, the pilgrimage site at the mouth of the glacier. A symbol of the god Shiva, it is the most revered peak in the group. dedicated to 2005 Meru Peak(Shark's Fin,6450m) team crew

Spectacular mountain...

It looks different from other mountains -
definitely has a mysterious and foreboding
aura to it!
