Nepal map Mera Peak

The Mera Peak is situated in the Hinku Valley of the Barun section in the Mahalangur Himal

The 6'476 metres high mountain is classified as a trekking peak. Mera has three summits. Mera North (6'476 m), Mera Central (6'461 m) and South Mera Peak (6'064 m).  

It is known, that there has been a confusion about its altitude and location since years.

The elevation of 6'654, also written on the stamp below, is the altitude of Peak 41, which is situated north of the Mera-La pass and not south of the Mera-La pass, where the three summits of Mera peak are situated. There are not any easy routes to the summit of Peak 41, which is sometimes called "The Real Mera". The Peak 41 is a difficult, steep and rocky peak for professional climbers and not a trekking-peak.

Nepal 2011 (issued 2012), Mera Peak.
The stamp issued in the series "Visit Nepal".  

It seems that the confusion about Mera peak, written above, is going on. It is not shure yet, which of the three summits of Mera peak the stamp is showing and which is the point of view.
