Pokalde Peak Climbing is the greatest feeling of an adventure which is just a great impression that very few people can only sense in their life. This peak climbing is situated in the Khumbu region which is considered one of the most beautiful peaks in this region. It is one of the most challenging and strenuous trails in Nepal. This peak climbing offers trekkers the chance to experience a Himalayan summit in the Everest region. The trail follows the same path that leads us to the base camp of Everest and its exposed terrain means that you should not try it in bad weather.

Pokalde Peak climbing is one of the basic trekking peaks for mountain peak climbing with the path of Everest Base Camp trekking up to Dingboche. Another major challenge of this trek and climbing adventure is the crossing of Kongma La Pass. The trail passes forward through the settlement of Tengboche and Dingboche to Lobuche. The peak is also considered to be an easy and short peak to climb in Nepal and gives you enough climbing experience for the many next climbs. The route goes through the beautiful forest of pine, juniper, and rhododendron which mark their journey untried. We will have an opportunity to see the wonderful views of the mountain like Mt Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and many others in the Everest massif.

Lodge Accommodation & 1 Night Camping

While trekking and climbing in the Himalayans where trekkers are staying at tea houses and tented camps. For trekking in every corner of Nepal first of all you have to know about the accommodation to spend overnight. It is very difficult because most of the trekking route in Nepal is located in the Himalayan part of Nepal. And most places you have to book a room in advance because these routes are the busiest route in Nepal. You do not expect highly luxurious lodges as lodging options are limited and have the availability of basic level service while doing this peak climbing.

For the accommodation, we will be trekking in a remote area and then only simply lodges. A tea house is a small hotel, restaurant, and lodge which is called Bhatti in Nepali and the tea houses will provide you a typical Nepalese food. The tea house provides you with two small beds with a pillow, blanket, mattress, and sheets. You have to share a bathroom with others because attached bathroom facilities are not available on the highland. And for breakfast and dinner, you will eat at the same tea house where we will spend overnight and for lunch on the way. For one night we will spend one night in the tent in Base Camp. Every trekker will get a personal tent for spending overnight.

Acute Mountain Sickness

It is sure that when you trek or climb at an elevation of 2500m from sea level you will suffer from altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is also known as acute mountain sickness and it is not a disease. It is just a reaction of the body due to the lack of oxygen in the body or in the tissue. You have to walk only 300 to 400m a day while doing this peak climbing. If you walk more than 500m in a day you might face this problem on the high altitude journey. There are some prevention methods for suffering from altitude sickness.

You must drink lots of boiled water, ginger tea, and garlic soup and it is necessary to know about the symptoms of altitude sickness. Some of the symptoms of altitude sickness are headache, dizziness, vomiting, difficulty in breathing, and loss of appetite and you must be careful and come down to low altitude.
