As one of the subsidiary peaks of the Konka mountaions, Nochma is located 5588 meters above the sea level and is regarded as the easier one to climb among all the peaks towering above 5500 meters in the Konka region. Mr and Mrs Billy from Germany were succeeded topping the mountain peakin late April ,2001. It was a long time before a new climbing record was set down. In May 2006, oneedged- city wanderer, 8 thousand miles away, spent 10 days making it to the top with Nima, a local Tibetan guide. It is not very difficult to climb across crevasses and slopes covered with ice and snow. If weather permits, it will just take one day to climb from the base camp on the end of the glacier tongue to the top of the mountain, from which you can be presented with a complete overlook of Konka’s northwestern ridge and its main peak with great sceneries.
The region has a temperate plateau climate, which is so changeable that the period from June to October is rainy season and the period from November to May ofnext year is dry season.
The precipitation around 800-900 mm comes mainly from July , August and September every year.
In dry season, the weather is fine. In addition, it is warmer onNochma than in other places at the same latitude.The highest temperature there is in April and May during one year.
Climbing activities are often planned during the periods of heavy rainfallalternate with the periods of drought.
There is a great difference in the height of hypsography of the Konka Mountain. From bottom to top, there are 7 climate zones, that is, subtropical zone,warm- temperate zone , cold- temperate zone, subfrigid zone, frigid zone,cold zone and snow zone.
