Trekkers Join Baruntse Team
Kim of Kelowna and Susan of Boulder Colorado are joining the Baruntse Team for the approach, trekking from Lukla to Mera La and then returning to Lukla. If that’s not enough, they will then head to Mombai and Delhi via Kathmandu to connect with some friends there. Their hike to Mera Basecamp will provide them with plenty of spectacular Himalayan trekking through both rural villages and remote wilderness. This pic was taken near Mera La looking toward the Mera summit. The Baruntse Team will attempt climbing Mera because it’s fantastic but also to help adjust to being above 6000 meters. The summit is around 6500 meters with a high camp around 5800M.
