Trip Overview

Package Details

 Pokhalde is quite a complex mountain, although its basic structure remains quite simple. It is a section of the long tapering southwest ridge of Nuptse South with the Kongma La pass dividing the two. Seen from Lobuje or Gorak Shep the peak looks impressive rising to the south of Kongma La (5535m) Pass; used for grazing the yaks between Chhukung and the Khumbu. A high camp can be established near the small lakes beneath the Kongma La. The northern side of the mountain has a small hanging glacier that is best reached along the ridge rising from the Kongma La. Those interested in the South Face of the mountain should make Pheriche their base.  The mountain can then be reached by climbing the huge lateral moraine and traversing over grazing meadows to the screes cone below the face.

The summit provides an excellent viewpoint and from that perspective is a fine little peak
