Country: Nepal

This is one of the Adventurous climbing package designed for you to scale three well-known peaks in one expedition. You will be experiencing summit of - Pokalde Peak or simply Dolma Ri (5806 m), Lobuche East (6119 m) and the Island Peak (also known as Imja Tse) (6189 m).

Comparing these three peaks; Pokalde Peak is easy to summit whereas Lobuche East being a challenging one and Imja Tse (Island Peak) is graded at a moderate level which can even be attempted by beginners. Hence, we the team of Accent Himalaya have carefully designed this adventurous journey in one singular package where on the way we will be acclimatizing each other day for the successful accomplishment of summiting these well-known peaks of the Everest region.

As we land at Lukla, we follow the well-known Everest track via Namche, Tengboche, and Dingboche. The way to Pokalde Peak is by following through the usual track to Everest Base Camp which diverges from Dingboche. Trekking forward from the diverged path of Dingboche, we reach the base camp of Pokalde Peak and then after crossing the Kongma La pass (5535 m), we then reach high camp of the peak. Continuing trekking from the high camp through the rocky trails and track – ultimately we are rewarded with the magnificent views of the Pokalde Peak. From here, we also get an amazing sight of Mount Makalu, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and huge panorama views of the Khumbu region. Subsequently, after summiting the easy Pokalde Peak, we will be trekking to Chhukung for our next summit i.e. Island Peak.

With our continuous effort and dedication, we then reach the - Island Peak summit. From here, we will be mesmerized by the views of Lhotse, Nuptse, Baruntse, Ama Dablam and Makalu etc. After summiting the Island Peak, we drop down to Dingboche and we will be trekking up to Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar (from here we get the close view of the Everest) and head to the Lobuche East Peak. Next, we conquer the Lobuche East which is one of the extremely challenging peaks in the Everest region. After successful completion and relishing the views, we retrace our track back to Lukla through Namche and ultimately fly to Kathmandu.
