Lobuche Peak Climbing Trek in Nepal
Lobuche Peakis a challenging climbing Peak of Nepal, yet does not require any technical climbing skill and previous mountaineering experience.This is a great trip if we combine Lobuche Peak Climbing with Gokyo Valley Trek and Everest Base Camp.
Lobuche East Peak is technically demanding and requires greater commitment, climbing expertise than on the Mera Peak. Experience of snow walking with an ice axes, using crampons and doing self-arrests is helpful to climb Lobuche Peak. Your guides will review the necessary skills with you, but it is essential that you are familiar with the use of your climbing equipment before the trip. Climb Lobuche Peak offers a very good views of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam and Pumori.
During Climbing to Lobuche Peak, on the way to High Camp, we pass a hidden lake and soak in the views of Ama Dablam, Cholatse, Pokalde, Thamserku, Kantega, and more. The summit ridge consists of steep alpine ice requiring the use of fixed lines. Safety is our top priority and we strive to create the safest mountain experience possible. Our experienced team of guides and Sherpa focus on leading a fun and successful trek without compromising safety. As you
Day 01: Arrive in Kathmandu
We will meet you at Kathmandu airport and take you to your hotel. Briefing in the afternoon.
Day 02: Kathmandu sightseeing and preparing for trek
Our first day in this famous city will be spent touring major temples and sites. Your introduction will only skim the surface, but it will be a unique and fascinating beginning, and our schedule will be relaxed enough to allow for trek preparation.
Day 03: Fly to Lukla (2800m) and trek to Phakding (2610m)
This spectacular mountain landing strip is the gateway for expeditions, trekkers and Sherpa people to the Everest Region. You will be transported from Kathmandu to a bright and colourful scene in clear mountain air. It will feel good to stretch your legs, stiff from days of travel, as we walk downhill to the village of Phakding, along the Dudh Kosi River. Times have been good in the area recently and the trail is full of new Buddhist art, prayer flags and small monasteries. We sleep tonight with sounds of the roaring glacial water of the Dudh Kosi in the background.
Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440m)
Today we hike along the Dudh Kosi, entering Sagarmartha National Park just before lunch. In the afternoon, we climb the notorious Namche Hill, our first real taste of uphill. With some luck our first view of Everest will be on the way up the hill. Mid-afternoon we enter Namche Bazaar. Namche is small, scenic beyond belief, and surprisingly cosmopolitan. A mixture of Tibetan traders, tourists from around the world, expedition climbers, proud Sherpas, monks, Nepalese civil servants, dust, mud, colorful costumes and yaks.
Day 05: Rest at Namche Bazaar
Today is the first Namche day. Namche will be our home base for this trip. We will return here at the end of the climb. We stay indoors in a classic Sherpa style lodge, one that has been a center of many of our expeditions since 1987. Before breakfast we usually take a 10-minute walk to the National Park overlook just above our lodge. The views of Everest, Ama Dablam and Lhotse are exciting and promise much about the adventures ahead.
Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3800m)
Today we hike to Tengboche where we will visit the famous Tengboche Monastery. At Tengboche we will gaze up valley toward the plume blowing off Sargamartha - Everest.
Day 07: Tengboche to Dingboche (4,360 m)
A classic hiking day of the Khumbu. Ama Dablam still rises above us and we watch its shape change as we walk up the valley and see it from a different perspective. Day 08:
Day 08: Dingboche Acclimatization Day
We awake to awesome mountain views in this cold valley. Tawache Peak towers above the town. Kangtega is sunlit and sparkles to the south. In the other direction we see Lobuche Peak and Cho Oyu, at the border of Tibet. We return from early morning photographs to our warm lodge. Today is an acclimatization day. We will sleep a second night in Dingboche. We might attend the Himalayan Rescue Association altitude lecture, or hike up over the ridge to the village of Pheriche.
Day 09: Dingboche to Lobuche (4940 m)
Today we walk up onto the Khumbu Glacier! The lateral moraine of this famous glacier is visible as we walk out of Pheriche. Distances are short now, but each step is measured and deliberate as we move higher in the thin air. We take a break for tea and a trekking style lunch at Lukla. In the early afternoon we climb the moraine past the Chorten that have been constructed for Sherpas lost in expeditions over the years. Cholatse Peak and Lobuche Peak loom above.
Day 10: Lobuche to Everest Base Camp (5364m) and back to Gorakshep (5170 m)
Each day the distance we trek is shorter. But our walks are more measured and slow, in part due to thin air, in part due to the ice and ruble of the massive Khumbu Glacier and all the photographs we will be taking. We arrive at Gorakshep (5120m). This old yersa, or seasonal yak grazing area, has become the last outpost before Everest Base Camp. Surprisingly close is the (5639m) foot top of Kala Pattar, the famous mountain known for its views of the top of Everest and Base Camp. We will climb up with our Sherpas in the afternoon for photos.
Day 11: Gorakshep to Kala Patthar (5545m) and back to Lobuche (4940m)
Today we visit Everest Base Camp (5334m). This is the day we get a small taste of what an Everest climber's life is like living at Base Camp and above for many weeks. You will feel the challenge as you hike up the glacial moraine towards Base Camp. It will not feel much like the movies when you get there. The challenges of living at altitude will be very tangible. Everest Base Camp is a famous but temporary habitat among the glacial boulders and ice of the upper Khumbu Glacier. The full mass of the Khumbu Icefall will not be viewed until you walk into Base Camp, but the creaks and groans of the glacier and the roar of avalanches from the slopes around will be heard during the entire day's hike. We return to our lodge at Gorak Shep with memories that will last a lifetime.
Day 12: Lobuche to Lobuche Base Camp (4,950m)
Our destination today is beautiful base camp for Lobuche peak. This is one of the most spectacular camping locations in the Khumbu at (4,816m).
Day 13: Lobuche Base Camp to High Camp (5,400m)
On this day, we will make our way to reach at the High Camp that lies at 5400m higher than the Lobuche Base Camp (4,950m). Our path is not very far-reaching one but has quite a few testing tracks. From here the snap of the enormous and snowy peaks proffer you overwhelming sense. We lay our camp here for overnight.
Day 14: Lobuche High Camp to Summit (6119m) and back to High Camp
We will have our breakfast at around 2 am and start ascending to the summit of Lobuche East Peak since we need to reach there before noon as in the daylight the sturdy winds in the elevated lands may turn into an obstacle for reaching the summit. This is the important day that offers a chance to see more panoramic scenes of peaks like- Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Pumori, Cholatse, and many others. We use up some time at the pinnacle taking good pictures, after that we return back to the High Camp for an overnight stay.
Day 15: Lobuche High Camp to Pangboche (3930m)
In a long day we return to Pangboche for showers, a great meal and a good night sleep in a bed.
Day 16: Pangboche to Namche Bazaar
This town always has friends to visit, things to do. We spend another relaxed day here to take it all in.
Day 17: Namche Bazaar to Lukla
On this day, we will make our path up to the landing strip in Lukla after a little amble on the valley. At Lukla in the evening we have a party with our Sherpas and staff. Overnight in Lukla.

Early in the morning, we will bid goodbye to Lukla and take a pictorial flight back to arrive in Kathmandu. On onset in Kathmandu we will shift back to our hotel. And, in the evening today, in Kathmandu we will together have leave-taking dinner. Overnight in Kathmandu.
