Thanks to Frank Verwys for adding this peak.

Pokhalde is quite a complex mountain, although its basic situation is simple; its a section of the long tapering SW Ridge of Nuptse South of Kongma Tse with the Kongma La dividing the two. This pass is used as a yak route between grazing at Chukhung and the Khumbu. Although below 6000m and 20000ft the view is reward enough for a few hours scrambling. The lake below the Kongma La is a good spot for BC. From here the route is up a steep but straight forward trail. The last 50 metres to the top is rather steep so may need a rope.
