KWANGDE RI PEAK CLIMBING

Description:
Kwangde Ri (6011m) is also called Kongde Ri and Kwangde dominates the south-west of Namche village the gateway to Everest. It is a difficult mountain to climb. Kwangde Ri with It forms an impressive multi-summited ridge at the eastern end of the Lumding Himal, which in turn is part of Rolwaling Himal. The mountain stands above the Bhote Koshi River to the south-west of Namche Bazar. 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.
