"I climbed Kala Patthar in the dark so I would have a sunrise view of Everest Peak and the surrounding peaks. The view was awesome but the windchill was brutal that morning so I didn't stick around very long. I took a few photos and returned to the tea house for a warm breakfast and hiked back up with my group (they had all stayed in their warm sleeping bags). Their loss!

"We summited Mera Peak after 12 days of hiking up and down passing the pass Zatrwa La 4610 m. Last two days we spend on the glacier after Mera La walking with crampons to the Base camp, High camp and Summit. We returned in Lukla in three days. Perfect weather on the summit and best view ever!" - Mera Peak, FilipVasileski, Nov 20, 2015
"Nepal reopened after the earthquake, so back at Gokyo for the 3rd time, previously over the high passes, this time a pleasant trek up the valley. Perfect weather, great trek, great people." - Gokyo Ri, davidlong, Oct 19, 2015
