Jordanese citizen, Mr. Ali El Olabi was successful being the first climber to summit Mera Peak in 2017. He reached the Mera peak summit (6419m) at on January 1st at 8 am Nepal time. By summitting the challenging peak with first sunrise of 2017, he made his New Year a very special New Year!
Mr. Kipa Shera, an expert climbing guide from Icicles Adventure Treks & Tours was with Mr. Olabi with his team on the expedition.
Ali is a sporty person and passionate climber. His Mera peak expedition has been special not only because he climbed it on January 1st but also because he did it successfully in off season (winter). After Dec 15th its not suggested to climb even the trekking peaks (especially Mera Peak) due to extreme cold temperature and because the lodges along the way to Mera are closed in winter as the trail see very less visitors.
Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak with its summit at 6419 meters altitude above sea level. It is one of the most popular trekking peak located at Everest region or locally known as Khumbu region. You can see spectacular views of Mt.
