Khumbutse Mountain  is the first mountain to the west of Everest. It is an altitude at 6636 meters.In comparison with Everest it is nothing, but in itself it is a nice peak. To the west are two other mountains Lingtren and Pumori. Though the mountain has steep sides on all sides it is for a large part covered in snow and ice. Trekking and climbing groups on the Lho Lha pass frequently report avalanches on this mountain.

Moreover, Khumbutse looks from afar as a miniature of eight thousand meters high Lhotse , as the adjacent Lingtren it suffers from the fact that it lies on the ridge between monumental Mount Everest and Pumori, so a lot of tourists are visit this mountain around in every years.

Similarly, Khumbutse Mountain  name indicates its location at the head of the Khumbu valley, down which the Khumbu Glacier flows. It is one of the prominent mountains above the southern Everest Base Camp and is seen in many panoramic  views from the nearby trekking routes, including at  Gorak shep.

Best months to climb: September, October.
