Pokalde Peak Climbing

Pokalde Peak Climbing is quite a complex mountain, although its basic situation is simple; it's a section of the long tapering SW Ridge of Nuptse South of Kongma Tse with the Kongma La dividing the two. This pass is used as a yak route between grazing at Chhukung and the Khumbu. Although below 6000m and 20000ft the view is reward enough for a few hours scrambling. The lake below the Kongma La is a good spot for BC. From here the route is up a steep but straightforward trail. The last 50 meters to the top is rather steep so may need a rope Adventure begins with a brief flight to Lukla, and next day taking an easy walk to a bustling Namche Bazaar. Before our explorations of the high valleys of Khumbu…. This unique itinerary takes us into high and deep valleys, providing magnificent view of the breathtaking sky soaring peaks.
