The Snow Saddle - is a beautiful mountain, which rises majestically to a saddle shaped summit from the Khumbu and Hinku Valley, south of another prominent peak, Thamserku. It takes about a week to reach Kangtega Base Camp at 5,182m/17,000ft, at the bottom of the Kangtega Ice-Fall, which resembles with the infamous Khumbu Ice Fall of Mt. Everest. Though the obvious ascent would be through the Ice Fall, the safest route is the rock face leading to a ridge around 6,070m/19,909ft and a rappel down about 70 meters to reach at the top of the icefall.The summit offers great mountain views and the surrounding valleys. Climbing Sherpas / Sardar will carry food, fuel and equipment and fix ropes.
