Mera Peak: At 6476m, is the highest ‘trekking peak’ suitable for anyone with little or no previous experience of using an ice axe and crampons. The spectacular route is well within the reach of regular mountain walkers with a good level of fitness. Our careful programmer of acclimatization is designed to maximize your chance of comfortably reaching this special summit. During the course of this expedition we are constantly rewarded with fine views of world famous peaks, including the towering Everest and Lhotse. Mera Peak’s notable summit provides one of the most spectacular viewpoints in Nepal. This magical vantage point offers stunning views of five 8000m peaks, Everest and Lhotse to the north, Kanchenjunga and Makalu to the east and the majestic Cho Oyu to the west.
Lobuche (also spelled Lobuje) is a Nepalese mountain that lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and the settlement of Lobuche. There are two main peaks, Lobuche East and Lobuche West. A permit to climb the mountain is required from the National Mountaineering Association (NMA) of Nepal, which classifies Lobuche East (6,119m) as a “trekking peak”, and Lobuche West (6,145m) as an “expedition peak”. As the easier, trekking peak, the East peak is climbed far more frequently than the West peak, however, most of those climbers only do so to a false summit a few hours from the true summit of Lobuche East. Between the two peaks is a long deeply notched ridge, however, a steep drop and considerable distance make approaching the West peak from the East impossible. The first recorded ascent of Lobuche East was made by Laurence Nielson and Sherpa Ang Gyalzen on April 25, 1984.Lobuje West was first climbed in 1955 via the South Shoulder.
