bokta peak climbing

Bokta Peak climbing  is one of the most challenging peak in Nepal which is located in the heart of Kanchenjunga region. Bokta Peak demands the necessary skill of mountaineering and climbing before you go to climb Bokta Peak ( 6143 m) . If you have already experience in climbing and mountaineering this would be new challenge to increase your level. Only the serious mountaineers with good physical condition can dare to scale the summit.

To reach the Bokta Peak we have to go long way to Kanchenjunga region which is still unspoiled and off beat track explored by minimum number of visitor annually though number is increasing now days. An adventurous walk through Tamor river valley goes towards Kanchenjunga Base Camp first and then crosses Lapsang-La pass after that we can reach the base camp of challenging Bokta Peak.

It’s very essential to be acclimatized and get use to with high altitude before we head towards summit. Altitude sickness and possible inconvenience can ruin the expedition thus we have to be careful about that issue. Brief briefing is made before departure from Kathmandu for Bokta peak climbing.

The western face of Bokta is steep and technical then eastern side has no straightforward route. The regular route goes through the col to the north of the mountain. The route follows the snowy slope from under the right shoulder to the summit. Hence the slope is gradually steep and ultimate rock fall could occur.

Bokta Peak climbing offers you off beat track trek in the semi restricted Kanchenjunga region where there are many things still unexplored. Rai, Limbu & Sherpa culture can be observed during trekking before expedition. We trek all the way to Kanchenjunga Base Camp at 5200 m altitude and come back to beautiful village Ghunsha at 3500 m then we cross the pass called Lapsang-La to reach Bokta Peak.
