Kongma Tse Peak (5,849 m.) was formerly called Mehra Peak or simply Mehra. It rises to the north of Kongma La and stands above the Khumbu Glacier opposite of Lobuje. It is one of several summits, which make up the long south-west ridge of Nuptse. It is part of the south west ridge of Nuptse. A climb here gives splendid views of Nuptse and Pumori peaks. The route to the mountain follows the trail to Everest base camp before veering off into the Imja Valley. The climb goes up the southeast ridge and requires you to climb a glacier and scramble up broken rocks to gain the south ridge below the summit.
