Pokalde peak is one of the easy trekking peaks for climbing which can be combined with Everest Base Camp trek. From Lobuche the peak looks interesting rising to the south of Kongma La (5,535m.) and the summit of the peak provides a good view point for the panoramic views of the Himalayas.The peak can be approached from either Bibre or Dughla. These two routes provide several ways to approach the peak: North Ridge, North – East Face, North – West Face, South Face etc. For Bibre route, we will follow Everest trekking trail up to Tsuro Og and trek to Yarsa. Base Camp will be set up near the lakes beneath the Kongma La. We climb to a rugged pass and follow beautiful snow ridge and cross rocky pinnacles. We continue following the ridge to a little more difficult climb through stones and finally to the narrow rocky summit. The North – East Face of the mountain from east of Kongma La could be the easiest way to get to the summit. We climb up through broken rocks and snow to the summit ridge and then to the summit.
