Overview of Pokalde Peak
Pokalde peak climbing (altitude = 5801m) is one of the easy trekking peaks in Everest region, which can be combined with Everest Base Camp trek.
From Lobuche village; Pokalde peak looks interesting rising to the south of Kongma-La (5,535m.) Pokhalde Peak (5849m) is situated south-west ridge of Nuptse.
Mt. Pokalde was first climbed in 1953 by a route from the Kongma-La (5535m) along its North-ridge and now also; most people climb the north ridge from the Kongma-La. It is also possible to climb the South ridge.
One can climb this peak in a less than a day time frame. However proper knowledge of climbing and information of the route is always a key thing for mountaineering.
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. However the view of Makalu, Amadablam, Baruntse, Thamsherku is wide and clear.

At Kalapatthar summit, you will get to behold panoramic views of mighty Mt. Everest (8,848 m) and other surrounding mountains. The view of the mountains, glacier and the ice fall is closer than you can imagine.
After Kalapatthar and EBC trek, you will trek towards Pokalde Base Camp and climb the summit. Pokalde Peak is located to the south of the Kongma La Pass (5,535 m).
