Khongma Tse Peak Climbing (5,849m)

Khongma Tse  Peak ClimbingKhongma Tse rises to the North of Kongma La and stands above the Khumbu Glacier opposite the village of Lobuche. It is one of several summits that make up the long south-west of Nuptse between the Khumbu and Nuptse Glaciers.

Seen from Gorak Shep, the summit has a diamond shaped hanging glacier above a steeply inclined rock wall that makes up the mountain’s North Face. From Bibre, near Dingboche, to the south the mountain is much more approachable. View from the lakes east of the Kongma la, a small, stepped glacier descends from the summit between long, rocky arms that make up the mountain’s South and South-East ridges. The margins of glacier provide the normal route of ascent.
