Description

To be at the top of a peak is the greatest feeling for an adventurer. It is just a great impression that very few people can only sense in their life, those who can dare for a thrill and adventure. If you are someone who is thinking of pushing your limits to be on the top of a mountain for the very first time, Pokalde Peak Climbing can be a great adventure.

Pokalde Peak or Dolma Ri is a peak of Nepal that lies in the neighborhood of Mt Everest. Situated about 12 KM southwest of the tallest peak in the world, Pokalde Peak is one of the popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The elevation of its summit is just 5,806m i.e. 19,049ft. The peak is also considered to be an easy and short peak to climb in Nepal. As of that, it becomes the ultimate peak for those who are trying their mountaineering luck for the first time. You cannot take many risks on your very first try. This mountain is the right pick to give you enough climbing experiences for the many next climbs.

As said before, the mountain lacks difficult technical sections and is one of the easiest climbs in Nepal. The climb will demand you little more than just trekking and that is all. However, the peak has gratifying mountain displays from its top. If not for the technical section, you should do this climb for a great snow-loaded mountain view. Sky Towering peaks like Mt Everest, Mt Nuptse, Mt Ama Dablam, Mt Lhotse, and many other Everest region alpines can be seen from the top.

Due to its easiness and low difficulty, Pokalde Peak Climbing is a prime climbing option for those tourists who wish to climb a peak without wearing crampons and using ice axes. But remember, you will definitely use ropes in certain sections of the climb. And the weather can make this simple climb a difficult one. If you wish to do it without any bad experience, you have to do it at the right time. Along with that, you need certain climbing training as well.
