Nangkartsang Peak is an attractive outlook point situated some 700 m over Dingboche. Nagkartsang is not a true summit, but rather part of the south east ridge that leads to Pokalde. A well-defined trail follows the gradual and later steep mountain ridge up to the peak.
Nangkartsang is a favourite amongst those “collecting” 5,000 m summits and an ideal ascent for acclimatization purposes. The view from the top is also not bad: from here, Ama Dablam towers majestically, directly across the valley. As compensation for Mount Everest which is hidden by Nuptse at this point, those arriving here have an excellent view of Lhotse and Makalu in all their glory.
