Trip Facts

  • Grade : ChallengingItineraries with this rating will at times be difficult, but if you are in reasonably good physical condition and work out regularly, you shouldn't struggle too much. Most trekking days will last five to six hours, but there may be times when this will be pushed to eight or higher.
  • Trip Mode : Camping For those of you looking for a more rough-cut experience, camping is the way to go. You will trek as normal during the day, before arriving at a pre-determined campsite, where our staff will have walked ahead to in order to set up camp. Here, you’ll sleep in modern tents and eat alongside your guide, with simple food prepared by the cooks.
  • Duration : 21 Days
  • Maximum Altitude : 5806m
  • Best Season : Spring / Autumn

    Spring (March – May)
    During Spring you will experience warm temperatures at lower altitudes and moderate temperatures higher up. The chances of clear, unobstructed mountain views are good, and it is also a good time to see Nepal’s flowers blossom.

    Autumn (September – November)
    This is the preferred trekking season in Nepal. You will be almost guaranteed excellent mountain views, but be wary – this is the peak trekking season in Nepal, so be sure to book your flights in advance and be prepared for more crowded trekking routes. During this time, you’ll also be able to see and participate in the biggest festivals in Nepal – Dasain and Tihar.

This mountain poses few difficulties and it is often used as a warm up for other Himalayan Peaks. It is one of the so called ‘trekking peaks' of Nepal and it does not require a huge amount of mountaineering skill. The term trekking peak is, however, a little misleading for some of these peaks which should be approached seriously. Most people climb the north ridge from the Kongma La. It is also possible to climb the South ridge (see route section.)

The mountain lies to the east of the Khumbu Valley which leads all the way up to Everest base camp. Pokalde is around two or three miles from Everest but the Lhotse ridge obscures the view of the highest point on Earth from the summit.

From the hamlet of Lobuche, which consists of only a handful of trekking lodges, the peak does look impressive as a high point on the ridge across the valley. It sits above the Kongma La (pass) and in comparison to the busy paths leading to Everest the route is infrequently travelled. The mountain is, of course, dwarfed by its impressive neighbours but nevertheless it is a worthwhile side trip from a trek.
