Pokalde peak Climbing

Climbing Highlights

Pokalde peak ClimbingScenic mountain flight to Lukla; Sherpa home down; Everest Base Camp, Kalapathar, Tengboche Manastery, Kongmala pass, Pokalde Peak climbing, Chhukung valley.

Pokalde peak at 5806m is located right in the Everest region offering the chance of an extra challenge for fit trekkers after the rewards of reaching Kala Pattar & the base camp. The trek route is the same as on our Everest Trek, & common to both treks are the three days set aside for exploring the area. It is the second half of the trek which differs. After we leave Gorakshep, we follow the yak route over the 5535m Kongma La pass which connects the pastures of the Khumbu region with those of Chukkung. We will stay just below the pass in the tented camp for two days in which to climb Pokalde. Classed as a trekking peak, the climb up Pokalde requires no special technical skills, but because of the altitude and possibility of snow, it is nevertheless sufficiently challenging for those who undertake it.
