Overview

Lobuche peak stands at an altitude of 6119m above sea level and offers some of the best views of the vistas and mountains of the Everest region. Considered by many to be one of the more strenuous and challenging mountains to climb within the Khumbu region. Not only will you need to be physically fit, but some experience of climbing using ice picks, ropes and crampons is needed to summit successfully. On the way to the climb you will be going through to the gateway to climbing the tallest mountain peak in the world at the Everest Base Camp. From Everest base camp, we make our way to Lobuche base camp from where the actual climbing of the great mountain begins.

The first day would be your arrival to Kathmandu where we help you get sorted into your hotel. Kathmandu itself is worth touring as it has seven world heritage sites as listed by UNESCO. The culture and religious tradition of Kathmandu with its medieval palaces and temples are sure to have you captivated. The ancient temples of Pashupatinath, Bouddhanath and Swoyambhunath are great spiritual centres where the religion of Hinduism and Buddhism flourish and give meaning to the lives of many.

From Kathmandu, our next destination will be Lukla, the gateway to the Himalayas. The flight from Kathmandu to Luka lasts about 35 minutes and you will be able to see wonderful views of the Mahalangur mountain ranges. Lukla lies at an altitude of 2840m. From Lukla our  trek officially begins, as porters carry most of the luggage to Phakding.The trek to Phakding is a gentle walk with a few ups and downs. Phakding lies at a lower altitude than Lukla at 2610m where we will stay for the night.

Moving from Phakding towards the land of the Sherpa, Namche Bazaar will take us around 6 hours. The trek follows the paths of the Dudhkosi river as we enter the Sagarmatha National Park. The trail climbs quite steeply to Namche which lies at an altitude of 3440m. The village itself has plenty of lodges, restaurants and access to internet. We stay at Namche for two nights total for acclimatization purposes. To speed up acclimatization we perform a short hike to one of the hotels from which we get a wonderful view of Mount Everest along with other peaks like Nuptse and Lhotse.

From Namche we leave for Dingboche, staying at Tengboche for a night on the way. From Dingboche the vegetation becomes sparser. We trek around Dingboche going to Chukkung valley via the Imja river. The view of the massive southern wall of Lhotse is amazing to see the least.

After the two nights of stay at Dingboche for acclimatization purposes, we make our way to Lobuche. Everest itself gets hidden behind Lhotse and Nuptse from here. After a nights stay at Lobuche, we get up early in the morning for a challenging trek to Gorakshep and then to Everest base camp.

Everest base camp is where many journey to climb the highest mountain in the world. The route to it is quite difficult and rocky. Returning to Goraksheo we make for Kalapatthar the next day  from where wonder views of Nuptse, Cho You and Ama Dablam. From Kalapatthar we make our way back to Lobuche where we stay for the night.

From Lobuche we climb up to Lobuche High Camp and get training on climbing and using ice tools as well as safety protocols to be followed for the climb the next day.

Sumitting the Lobuche Peak, we make our way doen to Pheriche via Thukla pass. Amazing views of all of the peaks in the region are seen clearly during this day of the trek. From Pheriche we walk back to Namche and Lukla where our trek ends as we make our way to Kathmandu via fight.

Thus Everest base camp trekking along with the summit of Lobuche Peak is a two in one deal that is sure to get your blood pumping as well as get you amazed at the wonderful views of the vistas.
