Khumbu Himal in the Everest Area
called Mehra Peak or simply Mehra, this attractive mountain
rises to the north of the Kongma La above the Khumbu
glacier opposite Lobuje, and is one of several small
summits, including Pokalde, that make up the long South-West
Ridge of Nuptse, between the Khumbu and Nuptse Glaciers.
Seen from Gorak Shep, the summit has a diamond shaped
hanging glacier above a steeply inclined rock wall that
makes up the mountain's North Face, which is in turn
slashed by a diagonal ice ramp leading to the lower
edge of the glacier.
the south the mountain is much more approachable. Seen
from the lakes east of the Kongma La, a small, stepped
glacier descends from the summit between long, rocky
arms that make up the mountain's South and South-East
Ridges. The margins of the glacier provide the normal
route of ascent.
with Pokalde the views from the summit are spectacular,
especially so because of the nearness of the massive
south face of Nuptse. The views northwards towards Pumori
and the Lho La are also outstanding.
