Pokhalde Peak

Trip Code: PPD

19 Days

Pokhalde Peak Climbing

Pokalde peak climbing is one of the easy trekking peaks for climbing in the Everest region, which can be combined with Everest base camp trekking. From Lobuche the peak looks interesting but from Pheriche it looks an ordinary mountain rising to the south of Kongma La (5,535m.). 

The summit of the peak provides a good view point for the panoramic views of the Everest Himalayas. This mountain was first climbed in 1953 by a route from the Kongma La along its North-ridge. Despite its relatively low altitude the mountain's first successful climbers were giants of mountaineering. We climb to a rocky pass and follow beautiful snow ridge and cross rocky pinnacles. We then continue following the ridge to a little more difficult climb through stones and finally to the narrow rocky summit. 

The North East Face of the mountain from east of Kongma La could be the easiest way to get to the summit of the Pokalde peak. We climb up through broken rocks and snow to the summit ridge and then to the summit. We could have chance to explore the Chhukung valley and others Himalayan range of khumbu region

Trip Highlights

A part of the Khumbu Himal, climbable from both north and south ridge of Kongma La, Just 3 miles in distance from Everest, the first ascent in 1953, because of its low height, it is good for climbing even in the snowy season
