Khumbu Climber

Khumbu Climber Trekking

A magnificent panoramic view circuit of the Everest Region, Kongma-La Pass  with challenging ascents of Pokalde & Island Peak

Khumbu Climber TrekKhumbu Climber Trek offers a beauty of its mountains, hospitality and warmth of its Sherpa people are legendary. This wonderful trek takes us into the heart of the Khumbu Valley, and visits Everest Base Camp. An ascent of Kala Pattar (5545m), is good acclimatization and gives us magnificent close-up views of Everest. Leaving the main trail we cross the little-used Kongma-La pass (5535m.) to camp in a cirque below Pokalde Peak (5806m). Here we can practice our scrambling skills and tackle our second peak. We then move into the Imja Valley to the base of Island Peak.

 

Khumbu Icefall & Everest Climbing RouteThe climb of Island Peak (6189m) is challenging, involving scrambling on rock, an ascent of a snow face and then tackling the final ridge. For those who are well acclimatized, determined and have the energy, the views from the top provide some of the most striking scenery in the Khumbu region. Our descent, surprisingly fast, brings us back to Lukla and to our flight to Kathmandu.
