Overview

Pokhalde Peak rises to the north of the Kongma La above the Khumbu glacier opposite Lobuche. Lying at a relatively low altitude, Pokhalde provides its climbers an interesting and adventurous trekking experience.

Pokhalde (5,806 m) was first climbed in 1953 via the Kongma La along its north ridge by the 1953 Everest Expedition team led by John Hunt. Pokhalde resembles a crenulated rocky ridge dominated by the vast bulk of Nuptse when viewed from Nuptse. The northern side of the peak has a small hanging glacier that is best reached along the ridge rising from the Kongma La. By and large the rock on the peak is poor, although it does offer some interesting scrambling on the well-defined ridges. The summit provides a good viewpoint making its ascent a well-deserved accomplishment
