Just get a Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) card and an entry permit for Sagarmatha National Park (exactly what you need for trekking in the Khumbu or Everest region of Nepal), and you are eligible for an adventurous Pokhalde Peak climbing trip. Also known by the name Dolma Ri, Pokalde Peak is situated approximately 12 KM southwest of Mt. Everest, and offers surreal views of the surrounding Himalayas, Pokalde Peak (5780 m).
