Pokalde Peak is situated Mount Everest region in Nepal which is one of the shortest and easiest climbing fix departure date has been set for 2012 & 2013 in Spring & Autumn.
The majority of the 650m climb from base camp requires little more than walking with short sections of scrambling up rock. From Lobuche the peak looks interesting rising to the south of Kongma La (5,535m.) and the summit of the peak provides a good view point for the panoramic views of the Himalayas.
The peak can be approached from either Bibre or Dughla. These two routes provide several ways to approach the peak: North Ridge, North East Face, North West Face, South Face etc. For Bibre route, we will follow Everest trekking trail up to Tsuro Og and trek to Yarsa. Base camp will be set up near the lakes beneath the Kongma La. We climb to a rugged pass and follow beautiful snow ridge and cross rocky pinnacles.
We continue following the ridge to a little more difficult climb through stones and finally to the narrow rocky summit. The North East Face of the mountain from east of Kongma La could be the easiest way to get to the summit. We climb up through broken rocks and snow to the summit ridge and then to the summit.
