POKHALDE PEAK CLIMBING – 5,800 M

The Pokhalde peak is sometimes also known as the Dolma Ri. The peak which has a height of 5,806m lies 12 km South West of Mount Everest. The summit of the peak therefore offers an unsurpassed view of Everest, the highest peak in the world. Makalu, Ama Dablam and Pumori are the other peaks that can be seen from the summit of Pokhalde.

Pokhalde is a popular and commercial ‘trekking peak’ as it does not require prior climbing experience to ascent to the top of this peak. However, proper acclimatization is essential to make it to the summit. We understand this and have devised our programme allowing enough time for acclimatization.
