About Kwangde Peak Expedition

Kwangde Peak ExpeditionAlso 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.

Kwangde peak 6011meter is located above the famous Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar and is ripe for those wanting to ascend a seldom-climbed 6000-meter peak. Combine this with a remote approach walk through un-spoilt alpine terrain and you have the essence of this challenging climb.

This difficult mountain forms an impressive, multi- summated ridge in the Khumbu region. The actual mass of the mountain is a 3 mile ridge running from the summit of Nup (6,035m. /19,799 ft.) Southeast through the summits of Kwangde Lho (6,187m. /20,298 ft.) And Kwangde Shar (6,093m. /19,990 ft.) and then turns sharply south-southeast through several lower summits and terminates at Nupla (5,885m. /19,307 ft.) All of these summits are included in the peak permit. The problem is that every route that has been climbed on the Kwangde Peaks is difficult and requires advanced technical expertise.

The Kwangde massif is the last part of the Lumding Himal and rises above Namche Bazaar. This is one of the trekking peaks of Nepal, so a trekking-peak permit is sufficient. The ridge contains at least 4 peaks. All can be climbed with one permit. All peaks of this ridge are above 6000m and inhibit some relatively small glaciers and some steep rock-faces. This peak offers views of the Rolwaling, Cho Oyu, and Everest and Ama Dablam regions.

Trip Reviews

Thank you so much Pasang, Purba and Tika - Paul and I had such a fantastic time in Nepal and most especially on our Kathmandu-Lukla-Everest adventure with your company.

From the very first time I contacted you by email Pasang you were extremely helpful and professional with all my thousands of questions and accommodating with any of our changes of plans too.

I had concerns about bringing over cash for the cost of our trip but once in Nepal realised that was the best way to do it and we had no hassles at all. Nepal is probably the safest and friendliest country I have ever been too and this was also reflected in our awesome guide and porter Purba & Tika.

From the minute you met us at the airport Purba with the beautiful garland of flowers for each of us till the moment you dropped us off again at the end of our holiday you and your company made our holiday absolutely amazing. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone also as it is a Nepalese owned and run company too and hopefully one day in the future we will be able to visit Nepal again and we will definitely use your company for anything we plan to do while there.

Best of wishes to all of you (and I hope Purba and Tika enjoyed the photos we sent over).
