Situated in the Khumbu region, Mt. Khongma Tse, 5,849 meters, was formerly called Mehra Peak or simply Mehra. It rises to the north of Kongma La and stands above the Khumbu Glacier opposite of Lobuje. It is one of several summits, which make up the long south-west ridge of Nuptse.
It is part of the south west ridge of Nuptse. A climb here gives splendid views of Nuptse and Pumori peaks. The route to the mountain follows the trail to Everest base camp before veering off into the Imja Valley. The climb goes up the southeast ridge and requires you to climb a glacier and scramble up broken rocks to gain the south ridge below the summit...

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
