Kwangde Ri, sometimes known as Kongde Ri and Kwande is located four km west of Namche Bazaar. Although Kwangde Ri is classified as a ‘trekking peak’, it is a comparatively difficult climb. Our trek starts in Lukla from where we make our way to the base camp of Kwangde Ri via Phakding, Lumding Kharka and Pokhari.
All routes to the summit of Kwangde Ri are technically difficult and only climbers with some climbing experience are advised to climb this peak. The peak was first conquered by a Nepalese expedition team in 1975 but even today Kwangde Ri cannot be labelled as a commercial trekking peak.

* Spring : March-May

The monsoon season does affect the summer months, so be wary that trekking can be hazardous, although there are some regions that are actually best visited at this time – please see our list of treks for more information.
