Everest Kwangde Trekking

Also known as Kangde Ri and Kwangde dominates the south-west of Namche village the gateway to Everest. It is a difficult mountain to climb and stands at a height of 6,011m. It forms an impressive multi-summated ridge at the eastern end of the Lumding Himal range, which in turn is part of Rolwaling Himal.

The mountain stands above the Bhote Koshi River which borders the Rolwaling area in the West with Khumbu area in the East. The northern part of the mountain forms an impressive barrier having several steep ridges to the north.

Trek passes through the Lumding Valley, acknowledged as one of the most beautiful valleys east of Kathmandu. We establish a high camp at the snout of the Kwangde Glacier, providing us direct access onto the steep snow slopes leading to the summit ridge. This magnificent vantage point, with views north to Everest and across to the Nangpa La and Tibet, gives us a bird?s eye view of the clusters of Sherpa villages below.
