Pokalde Peak Trek Package Itinerary

Pokalde Peak is Rising to an impressive elevation of 5,806 meters above sea level, Pokalde Peak is a captivating mountain situated in the Khumbu region, just a few miles east of Everest Base Camp. Although its best views are obscured by the Lhotse Ridge, the summit offers an impressive panorama of Mount Makalu, Ama Dablam, and Pumori. Also known as Dolma Ri Peak, Pokalde Peak is relatively easy to summit during the Khongma La Pass trek.

A Non-Technical Climb:

Reaching the summit of Pokalde Peak trek does not require any special climbing equipment or technical expertise. While it can be easily accessed without ropes, trekkers should be cautious as loose rocks may pose challenges during ascent, especially in poor weather conditions.

An Ultimate Mountaineering Experience:

For adventurers dreaming of standing atop the icy peak, the Pokalde Peak climbing package offers an ultimate mountaineering experience without excessive difficulty or hassle. The trek through Kongma La Pass provides easy access to Everest Base Camp, making it a popular choice for those seeking a thrilling yet manageable summit.

In the Lap of Khongma La Pass:

Pokalde Peak is situated at a height of approximately 5,806 meters, nestled in the lap of the Khongma La Pass. As one of the easiest mountains to climb in the Khumbu region, it is a favored destination for trekkers undertaking the famous Three Passes trek.

Why is Pokalde Peak sometimes referred to as “Dolma Ri”?

People often refer to Pokalde Peak as “Dolma Ri” due to its association with a sacred pilgrimage route in Khumbu. The term “Dolma” is derived from the name of the female deity “Dolma or Tara” in Buddhism, which is considered a symbol of compassion and protection. “Ri” means “mountain” in the Sherpa language.

The name “Dolma Ri” likely gained popularity among trekkers and climbers in the Everest region because it resembled the sacred mountains and pilgrimage sites associated with the deity Dolma or Tara in Sherpa culture. As the mountain is situated in the Khumbu region near Everest Base Camp, it might have attracted religious significance for some, leading to its alternative name “Dolma Ri.” However, officially, the peak is recognized as Pokalde Peak, which is more commonly used in the trekking and mountaineering community.

Choose Your Route:

Climbers can take two routes to reach the top of Pokalde Peak—via Pokalde and Kongma La ridge above the Khumbu glacier, or through Dughla. Each side offers unique views and characteristics, making the trek diverse and captivating.

Best Time to Trek and Climb Pokalde Peak:

The best time to climb the Pokalde Peak is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). During these seasons, the weather is clearer, providing excellent visibility of the peaks. The pre-and post-monsoon periods minimize the risk of rain, ensuring a safer climb.

While the winter months are doable, proper preparation for cold weather is necessary. The views of the mountains during December are crystal clear, and the reduced number of tourists offers a tranquil climbing experience. However, the monsoon season is not recommended due to the risks of slippery paths, landslides, and delays caused by recurring rains.

Pokalde Peak Climbing Difficulty:

Though Pokalde trek is considered an easier climb compared to others, it still requires substantial physical endurance and strength. While no technical expertise or crampons are needed, trekkers should be aware of potential dangers and employ appropriate techniques during the ascent.
