Overview

Lobuche Peak Climbing gives an exceptional taste of the Himalayas as you stand on the summit of Lobuche East (6119m) on-looking the stunning peaks of the Khumbu region. This journey takes you through various Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries sitting peacefully in the lap of the Khumbu Himalayas. Lobuche East Peak is considered more as a trekking by Nepal Mountaineering Association, hence can be conquered by any mountain lover without prior climbing experience. However, one must be physically fit before taking on this adventure.

The trek starts from the capital of the country, Kathmandu, and goes through the highs and lows, and ups and downs of Khumbu region. The scenic flight to Lukla, with an aerial view of the Himalayan ranges, marks the start of your journey in the wilderness. Walk through the silent forests to the village of Phakding as the trail continues through the alpine forests of Sagarmatha National Park en route to Namche, the Gateway of Everest. The trek passes through different rivers, bridges, and diverse vegetation. The trail also provides an opportunity to look into the Buddhist culture of the Himalayas as it takes you to Tengboche Monastery which holds high cultural value to the Sherpas of the region. Passing through many small Sherpa settlements, the trail leads to Everest Base Camp adorned with the incredible view of various peaks like Nuptse (7861m), Pumori (7161m), Lingtren (6749m), and Khumbutse (6636m). The vista of Everest (8848m), glimmering in all its glory, seen from the summit of Lobuche Peak is bound to leave anyone awe-struck.

My Everest Trip provides you with the best equipment’s required for the peak climbing. Also, you will be accompanied by our experts who have been accustomed to this route.
