Kala Pattar, Everest Base Camp with ascent Pokalde Peak climbing

Most of the summits lie in the heart in Sherpa World. We follow the classic Everest approach through the Solu Khumbu. Sherpa capital of Namche Bazar is veering off the trail to Everest Base Came. We will enter the magnificent Khumbu valleys from Lukla Bazar. We go towards the Khumbu glacier en-route and you can enjoy spectacular panorama from Kala Pattar at (5,545m.).

We attempt the summit of Pokalde Peak (5,896m.) after one night at the high camp perched on the South East Ridge. Magnificent vistas of the Khumbu can be seen. On the way of it while descending to base came, you can take the picture of Everest Glaciar and Cholotse as well as other mountains around. Also we can vistas of Himalayas of Mt. Everest, Mt. Makalu Mt. Lhotse (over 8,000m.) and many other mountains. The first ascent of Pokalde Peak was made in April 15, 1953 via the ridge adjoining the Pokalde summit with the Kongma La high pass (5535m). This ridge continues from Kongma La to the slightly higher Mehra Peak (Kongma Tse) at 5820 metres and beyond. Hence the prominence of Pokalde Peak is modest at 271 metres (889 feet). Most ascents of Pokalde Peak nowadays are made by skirting the opposite Makalu side of the mountain.The journey came back to end at Lukla airstrip then we fly back to Kathmandu.
