Thanks to Frank Verwys for adding this peak.
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 (if you choose to climb it legally.)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.
