Kwangde Ri Peak Climbing (6011m)
Kwangde peak 6011 meters 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 unspoilt 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, Everest and Ama Dablam regions.
