This 5,806 meters peak has mostly rocky face and doesn't need any crampons and ice axes to climb. Although considered as one of the easiest peaks to climb, it involves quite a risk in bad weather as it is highly exposed peak for this elevation. The peak lies closer to the Kongma La and Kongma glacier surrounded by Makalu, Ama Dablam and Pumori along with several other mountains. This peak has become one of the most popular trekking peaks in the region because of its less technical involvement and captivating views of the Himalayan vista from the top.

Before climbing the peak, the trip goes to the iconic Everest Base Camp and to Kalapatthar for an incredible view of mountain peaks including Mt. Everest. This trip brings the dream of any adventurer to climb Himalayan peak into reality.

Pokhalde Peak Climbing Detailed Itinerary

  • Today is the day of your arrival in Kathmandu, Nepal. As soon as you come out of the Kathmandu airport, you will find our representative waiting for you in the waiting area right outside the arrival lounge. You will be warmly greeted and welcomed by the representative and led to the vehicle. Our vehicle will take you to the trip hotel, most of the time in Thamel, that is 20-30 minutes drive, depending upon traffic, from the airport.

    After you check into the hotel, you can take relaxing time on your own as there are no activities scheduled for today, except our trip briefing meeting. We will let you know about the briefing timing upon your arrival.

  • Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel. We come to take your for a wonderful cultural heritage tour of Kathmandu valley. As part of the tour, we are going to visit four of the UNESCO Heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley. The places we visit today are incredible mixture of culture, history, spirituality, art and stories. Overnight in Hote.

    Swoyambhunath

    Believed to have been created on its own, this Budhhist stupa is the oldest of all the monuments in Kathmandu valley. Standing atop a small hillock, Swoyambunath, known as monkey temple amongst tourists, provides a fascinating view of the valley, surrounding hills and snow-capped mountain at the distance on a clear day.

    Patan Durbar Square

    One of the three medieval palace squares, Patan Durbar Square holds its medieval art and architectural grandeur. Amazing skill of the artisans is evident in each and every building that stands in the square. The square comprises of medieval palace, temples and museum.

    Pashupatinath

    This site is the most sacred Hindu temple area in the country. But, as the temple is strictly a Hindu only area, non-Hindu tourists go there to watch the unique Hindu cremation rituals on the bank of River Bagmati. The death rites of Hindu family there are so engrossing and heart-touching which make you feel the moment. It's not any kind of intrusion in being there and watching somebody being cremated in an open ground. It's a great cultural experience.

    Boudhanath

    This giant Buddhist stupa is considered as the biggest one in the world. This small square with giant shrine has a powerful presence of the spiritual vibrations. It's an important pilgrimage site for the people following Tibetan Buddhism.

  • After a day of wonderful immersion into Kathmandu vibes, we are ready to fly and trek into the higher elevation. We drive to airport early morning to board our flight to Lukla to enter the Everest region. About half hour of spectacular flight takes us to the small but beautiful town of Lukla where magical mountain peaks extend their warm welcome to us.

    Once we prepare for the day walk, we proceed walking towards Phakding as the destination for the day. The first day of walk in the Everest region goes along the Dudh Koshi River passing through several mani walls, chhortens and beautiful landscapes. Phakding village lies beautifully on the bank of Dudh Koshi River where we spend the night. Overnight in Lodge.

  • It's a beautiful day of walking into the Sagarmatha National Park. We relish the mouthwatering breakfast as a gentle breeze comforts the morning. We set off on the trek for the day and reach Monjo to enter the national park zone. After checking into the park, we head up towards Namche Bazar. Crossing suspension bridges over the river in several places; passing through forested parts and many wonderful views, we finally reach Namche Bazar. Namche Bazar is a beautiful settlement on a mountain slope with the view of Himalayan peaks right in front. It is also an important trade center in Everest region. Overnight in Lodge.

  • An additional day of exploring around Namche is required to acclimatize with the thinning air as we go higher. We hike to the Everest view point to get the very first glimpse of Mt. Everest along with other impressive peaks in the region. We can hike up to Khumjung if you like to. The hiking to a higher elevation will help us acclimatize properly so that we can walk further higher. We return back to Namche Bazar in the afternoon and wander around the bazar. A relaxing afternoon will reenergize and prepare us for the next day. Overnight in Lodge.

  • A fresh morning with the view of mountain peaks makes our breakfast even tastier. Filled with the energy, we are ready for the day to walk to Tengboche. The first section of the walk gently climbs and then goes much flatter before descending to the river and cross a suspension bridge. After crossing the suspension bridge, it is obvious that the trail is ascending towards Tengboche.

    We reach Tengboche to be greeted by the spectacular view of Mt. Ama Dablam along with the view of the Mt. Everest and other peaks around. Apart from enjoying the view of the Himalayan peaks, we can explore the famous Tengboche Monastery where the first Everest Summiteer Tenzing Norgay Sherpa once lived as a monk. Overnight in Lodge

  • We leave the comfort of the lodge and head towards Dingboche. The walk passes through the Diboche and Pangboche villages. Pangboche village has a beautiful monastery that is the largest one in the area and has a scalp of Yeti. After exploring the monastery, we take the trail towards Dingboche.

    Dingboche is a beautiful Sherpa village that stands at the elevation of 4,410 meters above sea level and projects an incredible view of the mountain peaks. This village is a common stopover place for the trekkers and climbers to Everest Base Camp, Ama Dablam and Island Peak. Overnight in Lodge.

  • At the elevation of 4,410 meters above sea level here and much higher to go, we are in need of an additional day to acclimatize. For the purpose, we go for a day hiking trip to a higher point near and around Dingboche. The day will bring us breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks. We return back to Dingboche from the hike and go to explore the surrounding for a while. Overnight in Lodge.

    We watch the sun rise beautifully over the magnificent mountains; take picture of the mountains and the sunrise and, later on, return back to lodge at Gorakshep for breakfast. Hungrily devouring the breakfast, we fill up ourselves with much needed energy to go back. We are trekking back to Lobuche today.

  • We trek to Pokhalde Base Camp today via Kongma La pass. It's big day trekking as we trek over one of the highest passes, Kongma La, in the Everest region. A nice effort up to the pass takes us there for a magnificent view of the mountains in the vicinity. Later we trek down to Pokhalde Base Camp to stay overnight. Pokhalde Base camp lies in a raised valley below Kongma La and has lake in the middle of it. We spend leisurely time once we reach the base camp.

  • Our adventure goes to the high camp today. This day brings an adventurous and beautiful journey to the Pokhalde high camp. The view from the high camp is mind blowing. We spend the day at leisurely motion at the base camp preparing for the climb to the summit tomorrow.

  • We are going to climb to the summit of Pokhalde Peak. Although climbing to this peak involves less technical skills, the rocky face of the peak and a near vertical rocky climb just below the top makes the climb more interesting. We reach the summit of the peak to have spectacular views of mountains including Makalu, Ama Dablam and Pumori.

    After spending some quality moments at the top, we descend back to base camp and trek to Dingboche to stay overnight.

  • This day is an extra day to make up any possible delays or obstacles on the summit push. If we do not need this contingency day, we will trek to Tengboche today.

  • The final day of this trek is eventually here today. We walk back to Lukla on this 5 to 6 hours walking day. We celebrate the end of the trekking and climbing part of the journey and thank our wonderfully amazing supporting crew members for their service and effort to take us to the adventure of our life time safely.

  • We get ready for the flight back to Kathmandu. We board the plane at Lukla airstrip and fly back to Kathmandu. Once we land in Kathmandu airport, we go to hotel and spend the whole day at leisure on our own. Finding relieving massage, good food, souvenir shopping, and wandering around can keep you busy for the day.

    A farewell dinner is scheduled for this evening. We will let you know the departure time for dinner once we reach Kathmandu.
