An Expedition to Mera Peak

The bulk of Mera, officially the highest of Nepal's permitted trekking peaks, rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas and is not truly speaking part of Khumbu Himal. It should also be noted that there is a discrepancy between the official height given by the NMA (6,654m/21,831ft) and the Schneider map (6,476m/21,247ft).

The first ascent of Mera was made by Col. J.O.M. Roberts and Sen. Tenzing on May 1953, by the now standard route from the Mera La. It was during this season that Roberts made the first western exploration of the Lumding, Hinku (Inukhu) and Hongu valleys. It appears that Mt. Mera did not receive a subsequent ascent until 1975 when French climbers Marcel Jolly, G.Baus and L. Honills climbed the North peak, following the same route as Roberts but traversing along the connecting ridge to the further summit.
