Nangkartshang Peak is an easily-climbed Himalayan peak that provides a magnificent panoramic view of many of the high peaks of the Khumbu Region, including Makalu, Ama Dablam, Chukhung and Numbur.
After a six day walk up the Khumbu Valley from Lukla en route to Everest Base Camp climbers and trekkers typically stop for two days in either Dingboche or Pheriche to acclimate to the higher elevation. From either of these villages, a climb up Nangkartshang Peak is a must to get an early feel for the 5,000 metre altitude you will face in a matter of a few days.
The climb starts either from Dingboche (4350m / 14,271ft) or Pheriche (4280m / 14,042ft) and although it is a steep climb, the top provides some of the best views in the Khumbu region.
From Dingboche, the path climbs steeply to a ridge marked with a series of large stupas. From here follow the ridge and steep path to a relatively exposed ridge to the summit which is marked by numerous prayer flags.
