- Pokalde (5,806m)
During the post-monsoon season of 2013 Adventure Consultants has another of our exciting expeditions to ascend three of Nepal’s most popular trekking peaks; Island Peak, Pokalde and Lobuche East.
This trip offers moderately technical climbing at times at high altitude, with stunning views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks of Everest, Cho Oyu, Nuptse, Lhotse, Makalu, Ama Dablam and many, many more, while exploring four separate valleys.
An ascent of these three peaks is a fantastic introduction to Himalayan climbing. It is also a great opportunity to climb above 6000 metres, in a relatively short time frame, in one of the most spectacular settings in the world. As far as training for future expeditions, you also get to experience three summit days over a relatively short time, and hone your skills and experience towards attempting bigger objectives in the future.
Stepping from Island Peak to Pokalde and then Lobuche East is an ideal progression. Pokalde is straightforwad and consolidates your skills whilst Lobuche East is a little more technical with more fixed rope and slightly more exposure. The high camp is dramatic with exceptional views across towards Ama Dablam, especially at sunset when the peaks turn pink as the sun sets into Tibet. We climb a subsidiary peak of Lobuche East.
This trip is very do-able for anyone in excellent physical shape with a desire for high adventure.
• Ideal first / second Himalayan adventure
• Spectacular views of the Himalayan giants
• Three high altitude Nepal summits on one expedition
