Home:: Peak Climbing:: Pokhalde Peak (5,806 m / 19,049 ft)



Pokhalde Peak - General Information

Not perhaps the Everest by a little - but its Lobuche that stands close to the highest point in the planet. Attractive, and daunting mountain that rises over the moraines of the Khumbu Glacier to a spectacular skyline, forms the south ridge providing common climbing route. 

One can reach the peak of Lobuche by descending a marked notch and climbing steep snowy slopes to the top. Said that Laurence Nielson and Ang Gyalzen Sherpa made the first ascent to Lobuche on 25 April 1984, but possibilities are that others may have reached the summit before as it is always especially remarked by the Everest Expedition groups.

Everest Region People / Tradition / Cultures and Festivals

Sherpa religion (a mixture of Buddhist and animist) and culture have evolved from thousands of years of myths, stories and strong religious practice. Those of us attempting to understand this culture soon enter an endless maze of woven stories and tales. With the advent of tourism a considerable amount of the Khumbu economy now revolves around caring for trekkers and climbers. Though originally from Tibet, Tibetans and Sherpas are culturally very different from each other, depending on region of origin.

Island Peak (6,160m / 20,210 ft) - The Another Popular Trekking Peak in this Region

Imja Tse peak towers at a height of 6,160 meters, and gets famed by the Island Peak (Named by Eric Shipton’s party in 1953), as the peak resembles an island in a sea of ice when viewed from Dingboche. Later in 1983, the peak was renamed as Imja Tse. 

The peak was first ascended in 1953 by a British team as preparation for climbing Everest. Tenzing Norgay was one of the members who successfully ascended it. In addition to the actual climb, the trek involved in this trip gives you "the grand tour" of the famous Khumbu valley.

Chulu East (6,584m / 21,599 ft) could be next you want to see

If you are looking for a climb up to Chulu Peaks, the next to think could be Chulu East (6,584m / 21,599 ft).

Close up views of the Annapurna range (40 miles between the two river valleys contain at twelve 7,000 m peaks and many more above the 6,000m) and varied ecosystems, diverse cultures and an ever changing landscape - lush, green paddy fields and oak forests, arid deserts, the deepest gorge and some of the most fascinating mountains make this one of the most popular areas in the world for trekkers and mountaineers.
