Pokhalde Peak

higlights

  • Since the terrain can be hard and the days long
  • Hikers on these treks should be in good physical condition and have some previous mountain walking experience.
  • But It does not require any technical experience.
  • Steep climbing may be involved, although it is never necessary to use ropes.

OVERVIEW

This mountain poses few difficulties and it is often used as a warm up for other Himalayan Peaks. It is one of the so called ‘trekking peaks’ of Nepal and it does not require a huge amount of mountaineering skill. The term trekking peak is, however, a little misleading for some of these peaks which should be approached seriously. Most people climb the north ridge from the Kongma La. It is also possible to climb the South ridge (see route section.)

The mountain lies to the east of the Khumbu Valley which leads all the way up to Everest base camp. Pokalde is around two or three miles from Everest but the Lhotse ridge obscures...

This mountain poses few difficulties and it is often used as a warm up for other Himalayan Peaks. It is one of the so called ‘trekking peaks’ of Nepal and it does not require a huge amount of mountaineering skill. The term trekking peak is, however, a little misleading for some of these peaks which should be approached seriously. Most people climb the north ridge from the Kongma La. It is also possible to climb the South ridge (see route section.)

The mountain lies to the east of the Khumbu Valley which leads all the way up to Everest base camp. Pokalde is around two or three miles from Everest but the Lhotse ridge obscures the view of the highest point on Earth from the summit.

From the hamlet of Lobuche, which consists of only a handful of trekking lodges, the peak does look impressive as a high point on the ridge across the valley. It sits above the Kongma La (pass) and in comparison to the busy paths leading to Everest the route is infrequently travelled. The mountain is, of course, dwarfed by its impressive neighbours but nevertheless it is a worthwhile side trip from a trek.

Hi Babu, What a wonderful experience!! It’s hard to put it down in words, bur all I can say is, “if you do it – do it with unique path. Everything was wonderful, excellent arranged and everything taken care. For value for money and a unique experience you’ll always carry in your heart, go with your heart, go with Unique Path trekking” They will see me again. Regards

Ron

We’ve just been back from a fantastic trip of the Annapurna Sanctuary( Annapurna base camp). This is our first time in Nepal and Unique Path Trekking Agency did provide us an extraordinary trekking experience. They did provide us excellent mountain Guides with professional attitudes and strong mountain porters. We are very much impressed by the scenic mountains as well as the enthusiasm of the guide. The cook can do almost every style and it’s really tasty. We’re sure that we’ll come back to Nepal again to trek in the marvelous wild nature with them.

“We did the Annapurna Circuit in October 2011. The weather is phenomenal and the tour was excellent. Babu from unique path trekking arranged everything for us, including overlooked travel insurance. Apart from the devastating scenery, our guides and porters made the trip ridiculously awesome. Bharat is the man, always quick with a joke and to light up smoke, full of smiles and passion for the mountains, it rubbed off on us and actually energised us during the really hard parts. Cutting through Thorang Pass was one of my life’s greatest highlights and I would recommend it to anyone, sooner rather than later. Thanks to Babu, Bharat and the rest of the crew, including the pretty girl who runs the office for an epic experience. I will be back again, hopefully sooner rather than later.”

“Many thanks to our guide Lil for his extensive and insightful knowledge of Nepal heritage and diversity. Every step along our tour was an informative tour while also providing spectacular views and secret little know spots of interest. He was also very flexible with our plans as we were traveling with our young daughter who often dictated the schedule! His invaluable guiding and friendly service made our trip very memorable. We hope to return again soon.” Namaste!
