Expedition to Mera Peak / by Stephan Geyer

This past March, I set off on my latest expedition to the Himalayas. This time, the aim was to climb Mera Peak, some kilometres to the west of Mt. Everest and try to reach to reach the summit at 6480m - it was not going to be easy.

This first part will feature images of the build-up towards the actual climb, these photos come from a variety of locations in Kathmandu and somewhere on the trail. All of these photos were taken with my Fujifilm X100S, in RAW and edited in Lightroom 5.
