"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
"A short, fun climb up from Gokyo. Amazing views of Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and countless others. Clouds floating around the summit made it even more mystical. I felt better on this climb than I have at 14,000; I suppose acclimatization really does work. This was supposed to be the first of three peaks in my itinerary, but the earthquake on the 25th put an end to our plans. Guess that means I'll have to go back..." - Gokyo Ri, edg, Apr 22, 2015
"I was assaulted and beat up by a jordanian climber named mostafa salame down in namche bazaar afterwards. But at least I summited lobuche two days before that happened! ohh the downsides of being a female who wants to climb mountains." - Lobuche East, mercedehppp, May 14, 2014
"I had spent the day at EBC and then went for sunset on Kala Pattar because the morning had been very cloudy; I rushed up in an hour from Gorak Shep to the summit just in time for beautiful views." - Kala Pattar, ncst, Apr 6, 2012
