Pokalde, a 5806m peak in the stunning Everest region, offers fit trekkers an extra challenge after the rewards of the trek to Kala Pattar and the base camp of the world’s highest summit. Trekking the classic route to Everest Base Camp, we camp just below the Kongma La, where we have several days set aside to explore and climb Pokalde.
Pokalde requires no special technical skills, but because of the altitude and chance of snow, it is sufficiently challenging for those who undertake it and winter skills experience is required. The climb is optional and an easier return route to Lukla is an alternative. For those who reach the summit, the views that unfold in clear weather are ample reward for the effort.
