Kongma Tse Peak Climbing

Kongma Tse Peak Climbing

Kongma Tse Peak ClimbingKongma Tse formerly called Mehra Peak or simply Mehra, this attractive mountain rises to the north of the Kongma La above the Khumbu glacier opposite Lobuje, and is one of several small summits, including Pokalde, that make up the long South-West Ridge 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, which is in turn slashed by a diagonal ice ramp leading to the lower edge of the glacier.

From the south the mountain is much more approachable. Seen 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 the glacier provide the normal route of ascent.

As with Pokalde the views from the summit are spectacular, especially so because of the nearness of the massive south face of Nuptse. The views northwards towards Pumori and the Lho La are also outstanding.
