I am planning a trip in November to go up Mera Peak. I'm not too sure which boots would be better for high altitude as well as the trek up. Are there any women who could give some advise on this?
I was thinking of either Mont Blance Pro GTX scarpa or Boreal G1 Lite. Any thoughts?
And for the trek up maybe scarpa charmoz is OD or la sportiva trango all GTX
I will also be hiking Everest base camp in October so want to get the right boots for that too.

Any advice will be very very much appreciated !!!

My wife and I both used Charmoz OD's for trekking and La Sportiva G2 SM's for Mera and Island Peaks. No problems with cold feet and although the Charmoz OD's may have been overkill for the trek they were extremely comfortable straight out of the box.
We purchased her Charmoz OD's at Decathlon as they were around £40 less than I paid.
