Mt. Pokhalde Expedition

Trip Introduction

Climbing Peak Pakhalde forms part of the Khumbu Himal in Nepal and although dwarfed by the bulk of Lhotse it is nevertheless an interesting mountain. First ascent was in 1953 by Noyce, Bourdillon, Ward and Sherpas via the North ridge as part of preparations for the British expedition that year. Pokhalde is good to climb in the snowy season and therefore better to climb in autumn than spring.

Expeditions and Climbing Peaks

All our expeditions and climbing peaks are supported by satellite phone, two way radio, support oxygen (when required) and comprehensive first aid medical kit. We only use top quality expedition tents.

High Altitude Warning

Safety is a major consideration during all our expeditions however there are dangers involved in climbing 6000m, 7000m and 8000m peaks that cannot be avoided. The extreme altitude, weather, cold and other mountaineering hazards ensure high altitude climbing has unavoidable risks at the best of times, members of our expeditions need to be aware of these dangers and accept that they are an integral part of high altitude mountaineering.
