Niremkha (6,159 m) is located in the khumbu region close to the well- known Cho la crossing between Gokyo and Lobuche. The peak lies just west of Lobuche west. It’s a great route for experienced alpine climbers. The ascent is mostly on ice and snow but demands good fitness and acclimatization as most of the difficult climbing is above 5800 m.
Though the peak can be reached via the valley above Drabnag on the route to the Cho La pass, it is easier and safer to start at Kanchung Base camp (5,250 m) near the Gaunara Glacier. The summit is reachable in nine hours from there in god conditions. Both routes converge on the Cho La Col (5,690 m) and continue along the West-Ridge that consists of snow and loose rock getting continually steeper towards the summit. There are two distinct summits of near equal height and the south Summit is easier to reach.
