Lobuche Peak Climbing

15 Days

The popular trekking Peak Lobuche lies close to the Khumbu Glacier and has two main peaks, Lobuche Far East and Lobuche East. Lobuche East (6145m) is 26 meters higher than Far East. Although the Lobuche East climb is a bit more challenging than Island peak compared to Island peak. From the summit, you get amazing views of Everest, Lhotse, Nupte, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and Makalu. Our 18-19 days Lobuche peak climbing expedition combines with the Everest Base Camp Trek.

The route to Lobuche is the same as the Everest Base Camp Trek. The trek begins at Lukla, which is accessible by a 30-minute scenic flight from Kathmandu. The 7-9 days trek to Lobuche Base camp. Along the trail, you will spend 2 nights acclimatizing in Namche Bazaar and two nights at Dingboche. Altitude sickness may be the major challenge; however, our itinerary allows enough time to acclimatize as we stop for two nights at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. Even we can continue to EBC and Kalapatthar which takes you to above 5600m, then trek back to Lobuche and attend the climbing expedition. We are flexible in changing the itinerary based on client requirements.

During the Everest climbing season (April & May), climbers attempt to climb Lobuche peak as a buildup training and acclimatization. It helps them better acclimatization and confidence. Pre-climbing experiences are required; however, our instructor and guide team offer some training.
